    There are many games that feature intentionally silly physics but few are as enjoyable as the wacky and delightful Goonya Fighter.

    I LOVED this game!!

    Got together with my mates to play this game and thought it was awesome! Had a great time exploring the different modes and exploring the game. The simple moves made it a wholesome game for all of us to get to grips with really quickly and get straight on down to battling it out!!

    It's got a minecrafty lego'esque style which makes it nicely familiar with a smash bros kinda feel in terms of game play. Kinda a street fighter format.

    The laboratory mode is awesome, the game never looses its worth cause it changes every week!

    The soundtrack is really cool to and adds so much tension and energy to the game play!

    Super wholesome, endless fun for friends, family, or a way to fight it out with your enemies!

It's been aMe and my family have recently found this gem during lockdown. The multiplayer is one of the best that I have played with family. It's been a hilarious, crazy, fun game to play online whilst we can't see eachother. Seriously, hats off to the developer for creating such an enjoyable game. It's very family friendly with cute Minecraft-esque graphics. The single player is great too. It's such a good game, I've already downloaded all of the DLC modes within days of my initial purchase. Honestly. BUY THIS GAME. It's worth it, for the laughs it will bring! Expand

    I was getting fed up of the same fighting games with improved visuals.
    I wanted something new. I found Goonya Fighter in the 'Coming Soon' section last year.
    If you want something new, this is it!
    The controls are so simple to pick up and suit a Switch joycon perfectly. The game is beautifully presented with smooth solid visuals, catchy music and the characters themselves could very well pass for a cool toyline.
    The gameplay is quite unique. You have keep your character stood up, whilst merrily punching and kicking away at your opponents. The rag doll physics really give the game character.
    It's great fun booting your friends into breakable scenery, throwing bombs at them or why not shove your opponents into the many hazards in the many arenas?
    What really elevates Goonya Fighters for me is the many game modes.
    The Story Mode really adds depth to the game. Travelling around map sceens and facing so many different kinds of gameplay whilst the story unfolds.
    As well as standard fights for 1 to 4 players. You have coin battles and races.

    There's plenty of DLC for Goonya Fighters too. The game doesn't rely on it, which is just as well. I'm not the biggest fan of micro transactions in games.

    If you're fed up of the same old 'Street Fighter' clones, retro inspired, scrolling beat em ups, wrestling games and Smash Bro wanabes. I highly recommend Goonya Fighters for any single player, party or family.

    Bravo!!

    As someone who started writing about games on an actual site a few months ago, I promise you no matter how far I get in the gaming industry IAs someone who started writing about games on an actual site a few months ago, I promise you no matter how far I get in the gaming industry I will never forget Goonya Fighter. The developers reached out to me wanting me to review their game, the fact that any developer reached out to me that early in the development of my site was something I was incredibly thankful for. Adding all of that with the fact that Goonya Fighter is such a fun game, the controls aren't too difficult or convoluted to figure out, I love the modes and I go back and play it a couple of times throughout the months. There are updates from time to time and new modes being added every little while, so there's a form of support for the game even after its launch. I will always have the privilege of saying the first game I ever reviewed on my site was Goonya Fighter and I wouldn't have it any other way, MUTAN, I applaud you. Expand

    playing the game on the switch is fun the best test gamers are my kids they were enjoying the game in 3/4 player mode
    I took on online players the feeling when your winning and you fall through a hole in the floor cant be beat losing is fun :)

    there are fun game modes that suit the maps and although there are not many what are there are very well done small maps with traps and pitfalls and the fighting mechanics are daft as a brush as when you strike an opponent it connects hard miss and you fall flat on your face...I give it an 8 as my kids love it....personally the price of the game swayed me its the right price any higher id pass imo its a must have digital title I didn't see much switch gameplay on YT so I did some glad I did need to spread the word when a good game gets released .

Those games came to the PC about 20 years ago. And I enjoyed them on the pc for a short time. Like playing it for about 5 minutes and then another 5 minutes with some friend. But I cant understand how it can be released for the switch and with a price tag of 24.99 usd. This is.. this cant be true.
    Most of the times I believe, there will be somebody, who will like the game, even I dont like it.. but this time.... I cant believe, somebody will enjoy it.. If yes.. Let me know under the video... :-)
