    Can I give Bounty Battle a slight recommendation for character diversity alone? No, I can’t. There are excessive issues through and through, including (but certainly not limited to) lack of fluency, gameplay variety, and depth.

    The dream of a Super Smash Bros. game full of our favourite indie characters is one we will have to keep having. The premise, when announced, sure did pique a lot of interest. But the final product is genuinely one of the most disappointing games I’ve played in a very long time and doesn’t give me any desire to play this game again. Maybe a game can be redeemed as the combat gets tighter, with new characters to add different gameplay elements. But the foundation here is so bad that it seems irredeemable. Clunky, floaty, and shallow battles; poor frame-rates, muggy graphics, unpleasant UX, janky menus, and a complete lack of style mean that there is very little good to say about Bounty Battle, which sure is sad.

    Bounty Battle is a disappointment from start to finish. It completely squanders a sincerely impressive character roster with a mixture of convoluted gameplay and poor technical performance. If you're looking for indie Smash Bros., you're better off grabbing the Undertale and Cuphead costumes in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and making the Shovel Knight Assist Trophy the only item.

    Bounty Battle is a fighting game that has a lot of potential, but unfortunately the feeling after playing it is that it is incomplete. Rough animations, a framerate that can be improved and few game modes summarize its proposal, which we cannot recommend.

    Bounty Battle is one of the very worst video games we've ever played. It's got an amazing premise, for sure, and Dark Screen Games' has somehow managed to procure the use of all of these fantastic indie characters, but that's as far as the positivity goes. Everything else about this appalling mess is absolutely broken. Janky menus, awful combat, a shocking framerate, crude animations and poorly explained mechanics leave this one in a hole that's surely impossible to climb out of; a hole that should be boarded up and forgotten about. If you're considering picking this one up on the strength of that enticing indie Smash Bros. premise, trust us, run away.

    A staggeringly inept attempt to clone Super Smash Bros. and populate it with indie characters, whose only achievement is to make you appreciate the real thing even more.

    good idea, but the final product didnt show the greatness of all of this indie characters. for example dead cells prisonner, if you play deadgood idea, but the final product didnt show the greatness of all of this indie characters. for example dead cells prisonner, if you play dead cells you know that the move set of dead cells is quick passed, the grenade is a slow attack and low damage, the graphic of dead cells weapons are undetailed if you looked and the weapon broad sword in dead cells and compare them to the broad sword in this game is totally different and why is every move set in the same speed . as a dead cells fan i'm dissapointed. the arena is boring why dont they make an arena that fits the characters of these games the arenas that are from these games Expand
