Description
Head-to-Head Puzzle Fighting Action!

Match blocks to send waves at your opponent! Dodge their waves or crash them head-on to survive. Unleash unique super attacks and your explosive Hype Mode to tip the scales. Its a back-and-forth struggle for arcade puzzling dominance!

Carefully plan your moves and swap blocks to devastate your opponent with precision or drown them in an unending tide of waves--the choice is yours! Even if you've never Popped a Puyo or Attacked a Tetris, just a minute on the sticks and you'll be crashing like a pro!

That Sounds Great! But, Really, How Do You Play?
It's simple! You move your character around the brightly-colored battlefield swapping pairs of blocks to make groups of 3 or more of the same color. Then, you can attack to send those blocks at your opponent in the form of a wave. Striking your opponent with a wave pushes the dividing line forward and claims more of the board for yourself. Once you've pushed the line forward three spaces, you win! If your wave misses your opponent, it creates temporary barriers that they can't pass through as a consolation prize. For a little extra spice, each character has access to a super attack they can perform by attacking with large block groups and Hype Mode which gives them a brief boost to their wave and running speed.

Free Demo Available Now!
You can find a free demo at http://flyover-games.itch.io/wavecrash. The demo contains two characters: the magical martial-artist in training Yo and the aloof psychic detective Seth! Let loose chi blasts and psychic barriers in a battle to the death! Or at least until one fighter falls over and doesn't feel like getting up again! The demo is local multiplayer only and supports keyboard and game pad input.

But What About the Full Version?!
Glad you asked! The full version would be much bigger than the humble demo we have right now. Final release features include:
  • 10 Playable Characters - Each with a unique trait and super attack.
  • Online Multiplayer - Complete with matchmaking and custom lobbies.
  • Single Player Arcade Mode
  • Better UI, Background Art, Sounds and Pretty Much Everything

@KrazyHelix I'm glad they liked it! I had a great time demoing it and I really appreciate the feedback.

my girls and I spent a lot of time playing this at MeggaXP this weekend and can't wait for it to be released. It was a fun and addicting spin on puzzle fighting.

Wow I love this idea. Reminds me of Puzzle Fighter but this time you can actually control the character. Looks good. The only thing I don't like is the background but I know this game is on an early stage. I will buy when it releases!.

Thanks for the kind words! Personally, I like a lot of arcade puzzle games but I understand how monotonous the genre can be for some folks. And thanks for feedback on the demo video. Making a proper trailer is on my to do list.

I played this back at youmacon and man was it fun! Looking forward to the release.

Also heads up, the patreon link at the bottom of this greenlight description is leading to a 404 page. Looks like there's a stray period in the url.

I can't believe I'm upvoting a match 3 game. This could reinvigorate the stale genre. The trailer's audio quality is a bit of a mess though, it has major gain boosting artifacts. Aside from that you guys have definitely stumbled upon something brilliant.

Yes! It currently supports keyboard and controller with the controller mappings based on the Xbox 360 controller. You can try out either set of controls in the demo available at http://flyover-games.itch.io/wavecrash .

This looks really fun. Is this going to have controller support? :)
