One Finger Death Punch is a game you can “feel”. The direct connection between your mouse and your character on the screen will be a new experience for many players. When you string together a long, complex string of kills, it feels like something “you” did rather than something the game let you do. When you play it you feel like you’re actually playing a Xiao Xiao stick animation video. We took inspiration from every kung-fu film we’ve seen. Every bit of effort was poured into delivering an easy to play game that was as addictive to play as Tetris.
Every Press Matters! DO NOT BUTTON MASH!
One of the biggest challenges we had while making the game is stopping the player from button mashing. When our friends play tested our game they’d instinctively button mash, they couldn’t help themselves. It must have been the many years of playing other brawlers that engraved it in their minds the notion of rapidly pressing buttons to kill your foes. The game’s designed in such a way that if you button mash, you die. Every press matters. Although playing the game should still be simple, you see a bad guy in front of you, you attack him, he dies. If you punch even once when there’s no enemy in front of you, you’re going to miss. If you miss, chances are you’re going to get hit. It’s a simple system but it’s ruthless to button mashers. We spent much time setting up visual and audio queues as well as many warnings trying to steer players away from their natural button mashing tendencies.
Silver Dollar Games has created yet another perfect example of how simplicity can be a tool to bring success in a game."One Finger Death Punch" is an Indie Rhythm Action Fighter that brings out the inner fighter in us all.
Using only the left and right mouse buttons to defend yourself, you are faced against a staggering amount of enemies appearing from both sides of the martial artist that you are in control of. Once your adversaries have reached a certain range of you; is when the battle truly begins. With many different types of enemies, starting with the basicfighters who are killed with only one hit to the more advanced attackers who can dodge attacks and require a stronger mix of both attack buttons, the phrase "One blink and your dead" is a reality that could lead yourself restarting the level a few times more than expected .
When I opened this Rhythm Fighting Stick Adventure I merely assumed that It would be just another stick man flash game; but to my surprise it was actually an incredible package of controlled chaos with what feels like an endless amount of levels which increase in difficulty and to top it off it is wrapped with beautiful colours and shades, followed by gruesome fatalities that leave you feeling godlike.
One Finger Death Punch is filled with 250 levels to beat, 13 incredible modes to play, and 3 difficulties to rage quit on. This game uses a medal system to bring out the inner perfectionist in us all, so that we can wrap the entire game with platinum badge status. Without a doubt my favourite part about this game is how completely OP you feel when your on a 50 kill streak and destroying everything in your path for survival.
The Music in the lobby truly sets the mood for the upcoming battle and never once left me feeling as if it was being repetitive but instead was the glue that sealed the game for me.There was only one point in the game where I felt there could have been better development, but luckily it did not affect the gameplay in the slightest. The level selection screen to me felt artistically unfinished. Certain points of the lobby looks as if pictures were pulled straight from paint and copied onto the final product without a second look.
In conclusion One Finger Death Punch is an incredible game that I would easily recommend anyone looking for an action fighting game and for its low price of 4.99$ you truly cant go wrong with such a satisfying challenge, which is exactly why this game has easily earned my overall score of 9.5/10
