  • Summary: 99Vidas is a brawler set in a contemporary world that pays tribute to both classic and new games in the industry. Brought to you in 16-bit pixelated glory, chock-full of references to not only gaming but also 80’s and 90’s pop culture.

    Anyway, there is enough separation here with the usual blueprint for this genre to make 99Vidas worth a go. As gameplay goes, it’s easy to pick up and play, as well as stupid fun from beginning to end. 99Vidas makes me want to break open my old Streets of Rage game and have another go with it. It shows that games like that still have legs and can be exciting to play.

    99Vidas is an affectionate homage to scrolling beat em ups of the 80s and 90s. It’s also a fun game to spend an afternoon with, regardless of age and skill. There’s not a lot of content and you can run through the story mode in a few hours, but local and online co-op, unlockable characters, and the promise of more levels should give it some lasting appeal.

    A nice throwback to an old classic, though its short length and a limited amount of fighting options are flaws to be taken into account.

    If Double Dragon, Final Fight, Streets of Rage or Golden Axe were your go-to coin-ops on childhood trips to the arcade, 99Vidas might well resurface some fond, pre-millennium memories. But alas, nostalgia only gets a game so far, and once the thrill-ride is over, there’s very little reason to return for a second playthrough.

    99Vidas appeals to a very specific market and manages to accurately recreate the scrolling beat ‘em ups of yesteryear, both positive and negative. If you have fond memories of these kinds of games this will fill a space for you, but wont necessarily leave you satisfied. I really like the games style and overall sense of fun, but in aping the games of the past it has failed to offer an enjoyable modern experience.

    This genre is for a special crowd of players that either love the genre or have loved it since they were kids. They’re not the deepest experiences, and they are definably better with friends. Playing alone can be a bit of a drag, as some levels go on longer then needed. Though bring a few friends, get on the couch, have some snacks and enjoy a few hours of old school arcade fun. Sometimes that’s all you need.

    The high difficulty curve and unbalanced enemy vs player interaction in addition to all of its issues make it hard to recommend 99Vidas to even the most enthusiastic beat-’em-up fan. This title tries to stay afloat on nostalgia for old favorites in the genre, but not only does it miss the target, it makes errors that this genre learned to avoid long ago.

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

Should beFor a Brazilian who understand the content and the history of the characters is a pretty good experience to have this game around. Should be hard to understand the content if you're not included in this situation I mentioned. The game play is pretty nice and smooth. Music, old school bit em ups references are there. I think this game is fair enough to spend some money and time to play. You can have a lot of fun as you had in the old times. On the other hand, if you want to have this experience from nostalgic bit em ups, go for it. It worth, for sure! Expand

Decent Effort though. If into classic style brawlers like this then would suggest giving a try otherwise prob not. Expand
