What's New in Version 1.1
Fun game/Needs Work
I must admit, I don't normally care for these repetitive type games but I rather like this one. It's a fun pick up and play sort of game....... On the flip side, it crashes way too much in the middle of game play. There's nothing more frustrating when you finally beat a tough level and it crashes just seconds before you're given credit for it and you have to make a second/third attempt once again. The controls don't bother me so much although they could be smoother.
All in all, this game is rather fun in my opinion... it just needs some minor fixes which I'm sure in due time the Dev(s) will report back to us with an update... at which time I will return to update my review and add a couple extra well deserved stars. :-)
Unfortunate Premise, Unpredictable Controls
Ravenous set the bar for iOS platformers with League of Evil 2, and Beatdown just can't live up to the company's later games. Others have pointed out its terribly short length, but I couldn't finish it thanks to unreliable controls and a totally pointless plot. The main character gets fired and... murders half the city?
Particularly in the second boss fight, the controls become almost unworkable. Turning to face enemies behind you is just harder than it should be, and landing precision jumps (a necessity) becomes a matter of luck rather than skill. Save yourself a dollar and some frustration. Pick up one of the company's better titles instead.
Needs thought out game design
It looks like everything else but the game design was worked out for this game. I don't mind the silly story, and while I do enjoy the artwork, the animations and the music/sfx, the gameplay gets super repetitive and boring really fast.
All I can do is move, jump, attack while on ground and in air and pick up weapons to attack with. The enemies are really not that difficult. I barely got hit until reaching the first boss and even then he was easy to defeat.
The ai needs to be thought out more to make the game challenging and other game mechanics need to be added to keep things interesting.
