A layout evocative of Nintendo Power and a theme bringing me back to weekends devoted to Street Fighter, Fatal Fury and so many other tournament fighters. Love it.

This is a blast. Great tone, pitch-perfect retro video game look, and lots of fun references to classic characters and games.

The rules changes are so clever and effective in capturing the spirit of fighting games — in particular, I love the way healing doubles as a quiet character-building scene and the way weapons can easily change hands.

The one thing that doesn't quite work for me is the specific choice of battles in the tournament. For a game that emulates fighting games and tournaments, it's weird to have the players fighting together against groups of enemies. I would have liked to see more one-on-one fights, ideally with something for the other player to do while they're waiting for their turn.

That's a small complaint, though. Overall, this is super fun and a perfect game for a casual one-off session.

I love this procedure of play / game structure and it's super thematic. I think the introduction of skills as fighting style techniques is great, the introduction of single-use weapons is awesome, the downtime mechanics are wonderful.

I immediately thought of a wrestling hack and a jousting hack for this!

I checked it out because of graphic design (the cover feels very much like a SNES cover), I stayed for the flavor of the game! Love the techniques and training .The change from Inventory to Technique score was such a good idea! I would love to have a print version in the style/size of old console manuals!

I want to run something inspired by Retro City Rampage orCadillacs&Dinosaurs with it - turn it from 1on1 fighting game to a beat-em-up! It will go really well with the breaking weapon rules :D

Oh wow this is definitely an underrated game! Excellent martial arts tournament game. 

That fighting dirty mini game made me chuckle.
