Fighter Attitude Brings Naruto-Style Flair To iPhones, iPads
If Naruto went lo-fi, focused purely on martial arts, traded in the fancy “ninja” garb for ill-fitting office clothes as if he were doing a 9-to-5, and decided to beat the living crap out of any and everyone for the heck of it, it just might be a game called Fighter Attitude. Oh wait, there is a game called Fighter Attitude.
This easy-to-learn, hard-to-master, gesture-based swipe-fighter brings touch-screen controls to life for iOS based devices, using some really nifty mechanics and techniques to make the most of Apple's handset technology.
The main focus is on stringing together attacks in quick succession using swipes and slides. The gameplay – just as it's featured in the video above – is fast and furious and doesn't hold anything back. It reminds me of a stripped down version of Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Warrior without all the flashy effects and special abilities.
Players will be tasked to use wits and fast finger work to out-maneuver and out-fight their opponent in this fighting title. Check out a brief tutorial of how it works below and just how ridiculously quick you'll need to be in order to fire off some fists of fury while also being nimble enough to avoid incoming flurries.
The gameplay is pretty tight and it definitely has a learning curve to master. I don't know if this is exactly eSports material but with the game's continual upgrades and updates piling in, it's not to hard to see the potential for Fighter Attitude to grow into something formidable on mobile (and hopefully PC) devices.
I think what's most interesting about it is the inclusion of the split-screen gameplay for two players. I don't think I've seen a fighting game include that kind of feature before.
Anyway, Fighter Attitude is taking today's generation of progressive feature-creep alpha design into accommodation and will continually see new updates, features and improvements to the gameplay over the course of its lifespan.
If you're interested in this game you can drop by the iTunes app store and proceed to pick up a digital copy for $2.99. If you're not feeling the price point and it's just not jiving with your budgetary jogging schedule, don't sweat it... a free-to-try version is set for release Stateside this August. Next month you can download and try the game out before you buy it.
