"Stabbing your friends is rarely this much fun. A 1v1 fencing tug-of-war. Lacking in content, but brilliant mechanics and a riotous competitive feel."

Über dieses Spiel

Nidhogg is the epic award-winning fencing tug-of-war, full of graceful acrobatics and clumsy stabs. IRL yelling and excitement may occur, in this ultimate two-player showdown of fast-paced fencing and melee attacks.

Beware, advantages in Nidhogg are often fleeting, as new opponents continually spawn in your way. Use a variety of fencing maneuvers while armed -- lunges, parries, and even dirty tricks like throwing your sword. If swordless, press forward with punches, sweep kicks, dive kicks, rolls, and wall jumps.

The combat arena stretches in both directions, although besting an opponent only gains you ground. Matches aren’t won or lost with a single kill, but with a series of kills granting you right-of-way to run/fight/flee to your own goal-zone.

Each arena holds different strategic formations and chokepoints to use to your advantage. Until you reach your goal-zone, anything is possible. Only one thing is certain in Nidhogg… the only way to win is to outwit your opponent. En Garde!

Dieses Spiel hat mich eine gewisse zeitlang in seinen Bann gezogen.

Warum?

- Spielprinzip ist einfach: Zwei Figuren kämpfen gegeneinander mit Schwertern und versuchen von einem Bildschirm Abschnitt zum nächsten zu gelangen bis das Ziel erreicht ist. Derjenige der dieses Ziel erreicht hat dann auch gewonnen.

-8 Bit Retro Grafik reizt selbst bis heute viele Spieler.

- Multiplayer möglich. Ich selbst habe es bislang noch nicht ausgetestet, aber es macht bestimmt Spaß mit seinen Freunden das auch zu spielen.

- Preisklasse liegt auf der akzeptablen Grenze ( vor allem ist es bei einem SALE ein absolutes MUSS)

- Simples Konzept = Gelungenes Konzept in diesem Fall, denn herrscht andauernd eine Herausforderung, so wird der Spieler automatisch stundenlang am Bildschirm gehalten.

Nun aber auch zur Kontra Seite ( die man auch nahezu außer Acht lassen könnte ) :

- Zu wenig Level.
- Manche Levels sind zu extrem mit dem Kontrast
- Ein Spiel für zwischen durch (, wobei man das auch nicht als Kontra Argument sehen kann )
- Vielleicht hätte man etwas mehr raus holen können ?!

FAZIT:

8/10
Spiel ist jedem zu empfehlen, der ein herausforderndes Spiel für zwischen durch haben möchte und nicht auf der Suche nach einem Spiel mit Tiefe und einer weiteren Dimension ist.

Nidhogg provides some of the fastest and most enjoyable monochromatic bloodletting one could hope to experience. The premise is simple. You are a pixelated swordsman in a territorial conflict with your opponent, most often your best friend sitting right beside you. Each standoff is lightning fast, and invariably ends in a gratuitous splattering of blood. Kill your opponent with a well-timed and well-placed lunge, hurl your épée at his head, or just knock him down and rip his heart out. Savagery is encouraged, and provides a hilarious counterpoint to the civilized image of fencing. Once you have managed to kill your opponent, you can progress to your goal until just seconds later, he respawns and you must again defeat him to progress. Lose, and he gains ground on you. This ebb and flow continues until one of you reaches the final screen where the winner is given a true hero’s sendup: He is eaten by a flying worm.

Nidhogg is not just a circus of inanity and violence, but is some of the best fun you can have with your friends. Controls are responsive, animations are fast and smooth, and landing consecutive killing blows provides a jolt of dopamine that keeps you coming back for more. There are multiple arenas to choose from, each one visually unique and designed to make you rethink your strategy. Some corridors are too tight for jumping or sword throwing, so both your opponent and the landscape will make you think on your toes.

Visually, Nidhogg exhibits a unique combination of minimalism through pixilation and solid colors. It highlights the expression of characters through animation rather than textures. It is aesthetically arresting and securely has its own style. These visuals are elevated even further when coupled with an exceptional soundtrack by Daedelus.

Nidhogg could have provided only the core one-on-one experience, but if you look deeper there are a lot of extras. There is a tournament mode supporting up to 8 players. There is a multitude of variants in gameplay to explore. There is a single player experience pitting you against an increasingly difficult array of AI personalities. Additionally, there is an online multiplayer component, but at the time of this review, I experienced some unfortunate glitches. In several matches I experienced moments where I killed my opponent, but immediately the game changed states, and my character unexplainably died. It wasn’t often, but it was often enough to sour the experience. I’m told that the online component is still a work in progress, so if you don’t have a friend handy to play local multiplayer check the forums for progress.

Nidhogg was first shown in 2010, and since then Messhoff, comprised of Mark Essen and Kristy Norindr, have worked to shine the core game into a full-fledged release. Nidhogg is available today on Steam for 12.99€, and if you have friends, it is well worth yourmoney.

Ich wollte dieses Spiel schon früher, doch der Preis schien mir zu hoch für den Inhalt. Da ich das Game nun im Sale sah, habe ich aber zugeschlagen. Es macht wirklich Spaß, vor allem zu 2 wenn ihr es online mit einem Freund spielt. Ich finde dieses Konzept echt gut und ziemlich genial, dennoch hat sich meine alte Vermutung bestätigt. Denn es gibt leider nur 4 Map`s, die man nach einiger Zeit schon auswendig kennt und den "Spaßfaktor" langsam auflösen. Ich weis nicht ob an dem Spiel noch gearbeitet wird, aber ich würde es mir auf jeden Fall wünschen, wenn noch ein Haufen "Karten" und evt. neue Modi dazu kommen.Vielleicht sogar ein "Arena" Modus wo man sich einfach nur kloppen kann um Kills zu sammeln=Deathmatch. Ich empfehle euch das Spiel, aber bis zum jetzigen Stand nur zum "Sale" Preis.

This game was meant for LOCAL play only, the online play is horribly laggy and the devoloper(s) haven't updated this game since it's release date.

DO NOT buy this game if you plan on playing this online.

Don't always go for the top reviews like I did with this one. This game looked fantastic in the videos. It actually is if you go by the single player mode which doesn't last long and (more importantly) local multiplayer. Local multiplayer is where this shines. If you engage in this frequently, get it. I only have occasional local multiplayer games and this is why it was a bad purchase for me and might be for you.

There hasn't been one update since this game's release. The guy ignored EVERY support request and then had the cheek to release it on the PS4. Why is this a problem? The netcode is HORRIBLE, and latency is the most important factor with a game where reaction time can be very important. If you play online and enjoy it consistently, get back to me, because that would be the first I've heard about it. Players will teleport more than in Counter-Strike in the '90s and is more buggy than the Master Chief Collection.

This is my first review on steam.

This game is awesome to play against friends, it is intense and purely skill based. The biggest problem with this is the multiplayer system only works when it wants to so you can't even play online with your buddies unless the "Server" is feeling okay. When the server is working which is probably isn't right now, you are unable to customize the online multiplayer match which is a huge part of the multiplayer experience in nidhogg.

In conclusion this is not a $15 game. I am glad I bought it for $3 and it is worth that when it is working. Offline mode locally I am sure is the only use for this game. Do not pay $15, beyond waste.

This is certainly a fun little game that is best played at a party. It gets lots of laughs. What you see in the trailer is exactly what you get - it is fairly bare-bones, which is ok because it works well. What is not ok is the asking price. Fifteen bucks for what I believe is only three levels and very little options just doesn't make me happy. I got it for like two bucks and I still don't really play it all that much.

My main problems:
-Too much money for not nearly enough content (not to compare or anything but Christ I got Minecraft for 13$)
-They could certainly add in more variation (I mean idk - how about different fighters/colors/levels/weapons/etc.)

Nidhogg is not bad at all in terms of gameplay. I won’t go into much detail because the trailers and such pretty much show what it's about, but its damn fun to play. The combat has a lot of options and things going for it and nicely juggles both complexity and ease of learning. The music and visuals match and mesh with the feel of the combat excellently. I can easily see how co-op can be a blast with friends, or the tourney potential.

So why is this not recommended? Because the devs cared more about the game’s style, raw gameplay, and media hype then its long-term substance or support. You’re playing this game and having a lot of fun, and then before you even hit the one hour mark you find yourself thinking “that’s it?” and then it’s all downhill from there. Singleplayer consists of you fighting a dozen or two progressively harder AI opponents, however the stages start looping after opponent four. Yep, only four stages. There’s no story to speak of or even an attempt at one, and once you’re done with it you’re left with nearly nothing else to do with the game. Multiplayer is dead, D-E-A-D. Its features are minimal and in terms of functionality the MP barely worked when the game came out, and then because they never fixed it people gave up on it entirely so there’s no one playing.

This game deserved more support and more features and updates from a solid company. But because it didn’t get that and most likely won’t ever, I am sorry to say that charging $15 for this is broad daylight robbery and I cannot recommend it. Only buy this if it’s on sale, and with the understanding that outside of being a weekend distraction or occasional hour of fun with a friend this game has no value.

Excellent dueling game... unfortunately that means it takes two to make it any fun. Quality game that's hindered in my opinion by being somewhat overpriced (and it hasn't had any good sales yet either).

Too many good games that sell for similar or cheaper for this strictly 1v1 game to compete based on value for price.

EDIT: It just got the sale it needed. Consume, at this price it's most definitely worth adding to your gaming portafolio.

I would recommend this game if the devs would ever fix the netcode. Whoever is hosting the match gets priority. Good luck being able to jump at all if you're not the host. It seems they've abandoned updating altogether. As a single player game, it's fun but it gets redundant fast. This game would only be worth it if you can do local multiplayer. At least this game has that.

I have a about an hour or two in this game, but don't let that discourage you.

GAMEPLAY: Niddhog has very good gameplay, easy to learn but difficult to master at its finest. You hold your rapier in three positions, low, mid, and high. You can strike from any of these positions, and if you hit your opponent who is at the same guard as your attack, it'll be parried. Moving your blade up/down onto your opponent's guard will also disarm them. You can throw your rapier, do a jump-kick, and do a sweep while crouched. You can also roll on the ground, which has the implication of rolling under a high-guard and getting behind your opponent. Overall, the combat is good. Also, each unique stage has special areas and can be used to your advantage. Such as the cloud level where you can fall down if you don't move.

GRAPHICS: The graphics, although "pixellated", are aesthetically pleasing. However this is where the game starts to fall. The second "cloud" level, is very, very bright and flashes very fast. I'm not epileptic, but I was straining to see in this level and I have no idea how an epileptic would deal with it. But otherwise they're good.

COMMUNITY: Now here's where the game falls apart further. It has a good, active community. However this is useless as the netcode for the game literally doesn't work. There is no online play, so you can only play locally/LAN. A game that'd otherwise have a very long life is made a gimmick because of this. There are no multiplayer tournaments, matches with friends, or community events. In this sense, the game's simplicity kills itself as it doesn't last when playing alone.

The game is good, but I can't recommend it. Due to the non-existant support post-launch, the broken netcode, and lack of news about the game gives it a bleak future.

5/10, good game but it's average.

ok, it's fun and all, but it's too expensive. 25 Reais (brazillian money) for a game that is the same thing over and over. Wait for it to be on sale before buying it.

Fifteen bucks for this? Are you out of your mind?

Remember how the final boss of arcade fightan games would typically stomp the player super hard? Well strip down the mechanics of the fighting game to an oversimplifeid bare minimum and you get nidhogg. Maybe it's fun with friends but then again I wouldn't know--avoid this game unless you enjoy repetitive frustration.

Only get this game when it's on sale (-75%)! It's a fun multiplayer game. You can confidently play it during a house party and you'll see that it'll be a hit (though I only did it once since the game "Broforce" is much more entertaining at house parties)! Also note that the achievements are very easy to get (except one, which is super hard, bordering on impossible).
