Thoughts on the Game
One Finger Death Punch is an ultra-violent stick figure fighter with extremely addictive game play. Using only 2 buttons (Left mouse button, and Right mouse button), you must fight hordes of other stick figures. Some will go down easy. Some take a bit more than that to take down. There are even some stick figures that will switch sides, or keep you guessing.
If you are looking to buy this game, there are a few things worth mentioning. Players that do not enjoy repetitive activities in games, or even just a repetitive game, this may not be the game for you, as literally all you are doing is killing ♥♥♥♥. The game DOES TRY
to shake things up every once in a while, by introducing different win conditions, changing how much health you have, putting you on a timer, and more.
But that said, the game can go on for ages, and has a great deal of replay value. Something I would be very interested in would be if the developer introduced a versus mode or co-op mode. You can read more about my ideas for how this game could work in Multiplayer here[pastebin.com]
All ratings are out of 5, unless otherwise stated.Graphics
- ★★★☆☆ (3 stars)I liked the Mortal Kombat style applied to some kills. But when the game zooms in for these kills, the pixels were obvious. I don't think it was just my computer, but I haven't had time to review the settings (if there are any for the graphics)Gameplay
- ★★★★☆ (4 stars)As I said earlier, the game can feel very repetitive after a few minutes, but I felt that this was only due to the core mechanics. The 2 buttons only mechanic also was a refreshing concept for me however, reminding me of old Atari games. I enjoyed it.Music
- ★★☆☆☆ (2 stars)The music in this game wasn't my fondest experience, as the music felt even more repetitive than the gameplay itself. According to in-game popups, hints, and tips... One Finger Death Punch features 3 music tracks. Just 3, for "over 250 stages, 13 modes, and 3 difficulty levels." - Quoted from the game description. This just wasn't enough for me, and I felt that more music was required. I understand the cost of adding more music, not only in system resources to preload it, and in storage space to store it, but also in financial and chronological senses.Replay Value
- ★★★★★ (5 stars)This game just kept me coming back for more. At 1 AM, I was sitting here playing around, and I distinctly remember telling myself out loud; "This is my last round, then I'm going to bed." I remember saying this about 13 times. Each time, I never did it. Only decided to hop off when I started yawning, missing up to 9 hits in one round, and dying against some of the easier waves.
(8 stars out of 10)
I suggest you buy this game. At only $5 USD, I will certainly buy it myself when I get the chance. (I've been playing this through family sharing so far).
