    Many indie developers try to emulate classic games and few actually succeed at it. Coffee Crisis nails 16-bit brawlers perfectly and it's great fun with a friend. So, brew up a couple cups of joe and get ready to smash in some alien skulls.

    There’s definitely lots to like about Coffee Crisis, and its developers deserve credit for recreating the 90s brawler with near-perfection. If you have a nostalgic yearning for some retro fun, and especially if you’ve got a buddy who can help you kick some alien ass, Coffee Crisis is one cup o’ joe that’s worth a sip. On your own, however, it might be a bit more frustrating and simplistic than you’d like at times, and your initial caffiene-high of enjoyment might wear off quickly. Either way, though, make sure you keep the lid on your coffee mug because the bangin’ metal tunes will have you pumping your fists as you play.

    Coffee Crisis is a fun throwback to the retro era. It takes a few new ideas, an interesting theme and simply has fun with things. If you are looking for a modern fighter with a variety of ideas you might want to look elsewhere. If you love metal and having fun just bashing face, then coffee crisis brews up a storm.

    Coffee Crisis takes the interesting concept of the classic beat ‘em up with a metal and coffee theme and attempts to run with it, only to trip over itself with a questionable implementation of modifiers that can’t be selected normally, as well as bare-bones combat. All of the pieces of a quality beat ‘em up are present in this game, but it’s not quite put together yet.

    Coffee Crisis is a nice homage to the traditional beat'em all games of the 90's, with a hilarious storyline. However the mechanics are too classical and redundant, causing the game to lose his interest quite quickly.

    As a big fan of both metal and coffee, this game speaks to me from a conceptual and stylistic standpoint. The soundtrack is badass and theAs a big fan of both metal and coffee, this game speaks to me from a conceptual and stylistic standpoint. The soundtrack is badass and the visuals are incredibly charming, but the one thing that drives me nuts about this game is how unbalanced the combat can be from time to time. If you're playing 1P, good luck. The onslaught of enemies--seemingly every 5 seconds--leaves you scrambling to try and figure out a strategy to take out all these bad guys while somehow reserving enough health to keep moving. Your "special attack" deals damage to your health, so it's almost completely useless when fighting multiple enemies. This game has plenty of charm and I keep coming back to it because it's interesting and funny as hell, but I just wish I felt like I was being rewarded for taking down multiple enemies at once with more than just a 25 point power-up.
