Pocket Rumble takes inspiration from the legacy of 2D fighters that precede it, especially the SNK fighters for the Neo Geo Pocket. Our goal, however, is to reduce the level of execution and memorization to the minimum necessary to retain all the core 2D fighter mechanics and gameplay elements. This creates a level playing field for experienced players to focus on strategy and reading their opponents, and simultaneously opens up the genre to new players who may have found other similar games overwhelming. Genre veterans will be able to pick up and play without having to study move lists, and inexperienced players will be learning the strategic fundamentals of 2D fighters at a faster pace.

Key Features:
  • Ranked Online GGPO Multiplayer!
  • Pocket Rumble's trial mode teaches new players the fundamentals of 2D fighters and also includes in-depth explanations of each character's unique playstyle and mechanics.
  • The input buffering system allow players to easily perform moves on the first possible frame by holding in the appropriate buttons during recovery frames, blockstun, etc. Useful for combos and counterattacks!
  • The frame data bar underneath each player’s health is a visual represenation of the last 30 frames of any character state that removes control from the player (such as attacks, hitstun, and blockstun). Use this tool to punish dangerous moves!
  • Each character earns meter in a different way and spends it to perform a different function, each designed to work specifically with their playstyle.
  • Ghost AI system analyzes your match data to create a ghost that plays like you! Fight other ghosts in career mode!
  • Lots of single player (and multiplayer) content for you to unlock!
  • Players have the option to turn on invisible cursors on the character select screen for double-blind character picking, even in local multiplayer!

I hope the steam community will enjoy this game as well. It's rare to find a pc fighter that's not a console port.
