    A tribute to beat'em up classics with a really good control scheme and loads of content to unlock. There are some modes missing, but so far is worth a try.

    Despite an over-reliance on in-app purchases, Fightback is easily one of the coolest and most intense side-scrolling fighters on iOS.

    Despite the annoyingly overt focus on trying to get players to spend money, the core fighting system here is terrific enough to make it recommendable to lovers of old school brawlers.

    Fightback is a game that will let you have some fun, but for only less than ten minutes at a time, and only if your character's stats and gear are up to date

    Dull, linear, repetitious and microtransaction-oriented.

    Fightback’s base combat is entertaining enough, but its reliance on a pay-to-win model dramatically overshadows its gameplay.

    The game comes first, not the business model. [March 2014, p.85]
