  • Summary: 99Vidas is a "beat 'em up" set in a contemporary world that pays tribute to both the new and the classic in gaming industry. Brought to you in all pixelated, 16 bit-esque glory, chockfull of references to not only gaming, but all 80's and 90's pop culture.

    If you like Streets of Rage, there’s a good chance you’ll like this. It doesn’t bring anything revolutionary to the table but Qubyte has done a fine job of capturing the essence of the classic beat-em-ups of the ‘90s, and although there’s a little bit of repetitiveness in it, this is a title that’s worth playing.

    99Vidas‘ humour can be very hit and miss, and the game’s challenging difficulty level may put some people off. But persist and you’ll find it a rewarding and hugely enjoyable brawling experience that will have you coming back for more, no matter how many virtual teeth you lose.

    99Vidas undoubtedly is a worthwhile suggestion for fans of the genre, that are willing to fully endorse the loveable retro character of the game.

    99Vidas managed to surprise us: a product that fans of the beat 'em up genre should look into. Being a low budget indie we're satisfied as it is, even if it could have been even better.

    As it stands, 99Vidas is an inspired tribute to beat-em-ups, with its solid aesthetic brought down by gameplay that lacks the diversity or complexity that would otherwise make this a more compelling game.

    I wanted to like 99Vidas after it promised to faithfully live up to the classics and add new beat ‘em up elements, but it couldn’t hit its own hype at all. The beat ‘em up genre is one that is filled with monotony and it desperately needs a fresh new face to give it the revitalization that other genres, like fighting games, have seen in recent years. I wasn’t expecting 99Vidas to be that game but I was hoping it’d be a competent beat ‘em up. Instead, it leans too heavily on lazy writing and tired mechanics while only adding mechanics that serve to make the game more frustrating.

Beat 'em up desafiador, com vários personagens, trilha sonora excelente, mas acima de tudo, divertido. São muitas referências e piadas mesmo para quem não acompanha o podcast, se prestar atenção principalmente no cenário você vai rir um bocado. Contando com um certo fator replay pois os diálogos são diferentes e o final também é a depender dos personagens que estão jogando. Pra quem ouve o podcast, é obrigatório e, pra quem não ouve, dê uma chance. Não vai se arrepender Expand

    Ótimo jogo, que traz de volta a alegria de joga um bom Beat 'em up. A música é excelente, os gráficos são muito bons com cenários variados eÓtimo jogo, que traz de volta a alegria de joga um bom Beat 'em up. A música é excelente, os gráficos são muito bons com cenários variados e com várias referências do cast e de outros games. A jogabilidade é muito boa. O jogo não é facil de terminar sozinho, mas nada que seja impossível. Com um pouco de treino você consegue terminar, como se fazia na época dos 8 e 16 bits, em jogos como Megaman, Contra, Battletoads... Pena que essa nova geração de "gamers" se dedica mais em criticar do que se dedica a jogos com um pouco mais de dificuldade. No geral temos um ótima jogo que faz uma bela homenagem aos clássicos Beat 'em ups e que vale cada centavo. Expand
