Any day with a new game from Super Crate Box weirdo-heads Vlambeer is a good day. This time, they’ve made one about being a martial arts superhero – in just two hours. Kicksplode!
Well, one hour and fifty-seven minutes to be precise. Even so: bloody hell. That is impressive work, especially given this is far from terrible. It’s rather a lot of fun, in fact. Oh, there’s that stupid, meaningless word again. Yes, everyone has a different idea of fun. My idea of fun is mashing buttons to make pretend-dudes fall over. Ergo, this is fun.
Karate, which was created to combat their “inner boredom” more than anything else, is tiny and unfair and ridiculous and brillant. Basically, it’s that Enter The Dragon scene where Bruce Lee fights like a thousand men in a row, ad infinitum. That’s all I really want from a Karate game, to be honest. Skill? Pah! Punch!
6MB of free, joyous pixel-art carnage await you here. How many men did you karate in the face before perishing?
