Okinawa Rush attracted me the moment I played it and dragged me in with its visceral, fast paced powerful battles. You won’t find a developed story or a stellar soundtrack, but sound design in combat is top tier, with each hit feeling like it’s forceful enough to crush skulls. If a dark, gruesome brawler that empowers you to be a badass is what you’re itching for, then Okinawa Rush is just the right scratch for you.
Okinawa Rush is a treat for beat-em-up fans and anyone looking for a challenge. Making all the endings and finding all the secrets guarantees many hours of play, even on an easy difficulty. Although it has its problems (the menu and the feng-shui system), it's one of the best games I've played this year.
This little gem came out of nowhere for me, downloaded the demo and was hyped for the release of the full game straight away.
If you like classic beatmups like double dragon and streets of rage then this game is for you. Runs well on switch with very little frame drops. Ggame was made only by a couple of people and has done a better job than most bigger dev teams.
Great music and great art style. Could go on but since their is a free demo available for everyone to try I'll let you decide.
Ovviamente qualche difetto qua e la c’è, ma considerando che è un “omaggio agli anni ’90” con i suoi pro e contro è un buon gioco. Okinawa Rush è un gioco abbastanza particolare, semplice e profondo quanto basta. Stratificato e profondo anche nel gameplay, il parco mosse è riuscito a stupirmi così come la longevità e la rigiocabilitò. Se poi uniamo tutto ciò alla modalità arcade, beh abbiamo una buona quantità di ore di divertimento davvero degne di nota. E’ un gioco che non pul mancare negli scaffali degli amani del genere sprattutto per gli affezionati agli anni ’90. Se non vi piace lo stile retrò, non vi farò cambiare idea.
Okinawa Rush is definitely worth a try for fans of 90’s and early 2000’s arcade games. It has a very arcadey setup and is quite satisfying to play through. Harder difficulty will give you a level timer that you’ll have to constantly add to by defeating enemies – sort of like a survival mode. With only having five levels, the game is very short (only takes around 2 hours to complete), but it has a lot of replay value in its difficulties. It also has its own in-game achievements on the Switch and many of the achievements are VERY challenging!
Okinawa Rush is a challenging retro style game that is easy to play, but difficult to master and complete. A very replayable title, with a good story that we can enjoy with another player. A highly recommended proposal.
Take the aesthetics of Double Dragon and Streets of Rage, add some combos from a Tekken or a Street Fighter game, and then you have a good idea of what awaits you in Okinawa Rush. The splendid pixel art, the detailed animations, the variety of the gameplay are in favor of the game of the Miller brothers, whose love for the ancients beat'em up is felt on many points.
The demo was so great I made it a point to dl it day one, and even looked to get a physical copy (which I found and was way too expensive). The game was good, but a bit buggy, and far too short. I really want to recommend it but I'd say definitely wait for a sale. If they fixed the bugs and gave us a few more levels I would say this game is a hidden gem that needs to be played.
What’s a shame to me with Okinawa Rush is that beyond some flaws that are frustratingly hard to ignore there can be pretty intense moments of side-scrolling brawler fun where it does work pretty well. It starts with a small thing but the mapping of the menu button to advance is B instead of A, but then an all-too-steady drip of other irritants continue to emerge as well ranging from aggravating level design to difficulty identifying objects in the foreground versus the background (with lethal results) and an abundance of cheap death traps peppered about that break up the fun with aggravation. While perhaps a bit on the spammy side at times when you’re brawling with enemies the fun does emerge though, and though you may be inclined towards button mashing there are some moves you can use that will make your life much simpler and look quite cool. The result puts my feelings a bit in limbo, enjoying the good times, but having a hard time simply ignoring the bad ones. Give it a look and see where you may fall on the spectrum if you’re a fan of classic brawlers.
