    Fist of Awesome embodies the word fun; everything about it.

    A totalitarian society of bears is only the tip of the iceberg in this throwback brawler.

    Fist of Awesome’s campaign does come awfully close to wearing out its welcome, but everything from the pixely graphics to the challenging Arena mode is wonderfully humorous and created with care. It’s an achievement made even more impressive when you realize that the bulk of the game was created by just one person.

    It's beautifully put together and full of laughs, but the violence in Fist of Awesome gets old a little too quickly.

    What's here at the moment more than justifies the pocket money impulse purchase price, and the few hours it will take you to bash your way through to the end.

    I had fun with this, but I could also see how it could get under the skin of some who are growing tired with hipster pixel art games. Case in point: developer I Fight Bears makes “Games For People With Beards.” Granted, that’s a joke. But I can’t tell whether or not there’s a line in Fist of Awesome that divides between satire or pandering.

    No doubt that Fist of Awesome is hilarious and completely nonsense, but it's also really repetitive and bearing. I mean... boring.

After a while it got frustrating when you could barely move because you were surrounded. But there are a few redeeming qualities of this game that did leave me with the “I might not buy it right away” feeling but would eventually break down and buy it. Expand

    Could've had more variety, but it's a good retro-beat'em up. OUYA version is the best version, thanks to the joypad. VIRTUALINN.IT
