Kick, punch, it’s all in the mind, except for today when it’s all about one thing – the launch of One Finger Death Punch 2 on Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.
Sold on the back of being the world’s fastest brawler, One Finger Death Punch 2 has been pulling the punches on Steam for nearly 12 months already, receiving some rave reviews in the process, but today we see Silver Dollar Games taking the fight to Xbox One and Nintendo Switch players, giving them the chance to be the ultimate kung fu master.
One Finger Death Punch 2 does away with story and worries little about visual style – this is about batting back the bad guys as fast, and with as little effort, as possible, punching left and right as foes approach. Proving that there can be complexity in even the most simple of actions, OFDP2 delivers a host of brilliant kung fu moments and as our full review of One Finger Death Punch 2 on Xbox One shows, it’s a hugely enjoyable affair too. The promise of more than 400 levels, 15 stage types, a load of endless survival modes, a couple of guantlet runs and no less than 26 new deadly skills to learn makes this one content rich gaming option.
If you’re happy to embrace simplicity and wish for nothing but to smash bad guys in the face then One Finger Death Punch 2 may just be for you. Get over to the Xbox Store and grab it for Xbox One (£7.49), the Nintendo eShop should you prefer the Switch way of life, or Steam or GOG on PC.
And don’t forget to let us know how you find the game. The comments section is down below. We’d love to hear from you.
Simplicity to perfection. To be played in bursts. By design, there is no story. Only crazy kung-fu. You’re surrounded, outnumbered and have to use any weapon you can get your hands on to dismantle your opponents in a flurry of kung fu. That’s the essence of OFDP2, the world’s fastest brawler. It features the original OFDP’s unique two-button mechanics which we’ve spent the last five years perfecting. Speed and precision are key in this whirlwind fighting frenzy, as players maintain control over the 26 different unlockable skills, frenetic gameplay, and classic kung fu-inspired animations. ATTACK LEFT or ATTACK RIGHT We want to show that a fighting game can be complex without cumbersome button combinations. Once players complete the tutorial levels and learn the basics, they’ll see that this is the most intense two-button game ever made. With 1000 different animations available, literally, anything is possible—particularly when players unlock each of the 26 available skills. Having these skills available simultaneously is a major design challenge that encompasses the core of what OFDP2 is trying to achieve. Seeing the game with all 26 skills is a spectacle unique to OFDP2. We built this game as a palette cleanser between other games in your library. It was designed to deliver a quick hit of adrenalin as fast as possible.
