Think. Arm. Strike.
Mixing popular 1v1 action with completely new mechanics, Kinetic Damage stands up from decades of the same fighting game formula to bring you something fresh.
Smashing fists, aerial kicks, one-two sways, armlocks, switching stances, fast paced strategies, and an advanced Artificial Intelligence ...
What fighter will you build ? What legend will you be ?
* Create your fighter !
Choose your gender, your haircut, your clothes, create your own style.
8 different clothing styles for arms, legs and torso, 10 colors per style, 12 different faces, 8 different haircuts, and 1 special outfit per Martial Art !
* Choose between 8 legendary Martial Arts !
Jeet Kun Do, Ninjutsu, Taekwondo, Krav Maga, Muay Thai, Tai Chi Chuan, Shaolin Kung Fu, Break !
All have unique mechanics, designed to reflect their real-life base principles.
Each having : 16 base strikes, 4 (very) special moves, and 6 unique strings of combos.
Will you choose to be the fast and deadly, but fragile Ninjutsu ? Or the slower, but crushing Muay Thai ?
* Easy to handle, hard to master
Kinetic Damage is designed to offer easy and responsive controls, like simple press / hold schemes, and a discrete but clear directional pad.
Outputting a strike has never been so easy ... but hidden, deeper mechanics, are working seamlessly behind your fists and your kicks.
Learn to master critical strikes, stance switching, localized damages, powerups, wounds, stamina management ... Just like in a real martial art competition, arcade style !
* Make your fighter evolve !
The Career mode lets you participate in 24 different events, each having their own fight rules. Tournaments, Fight Roulettes, Temporary Stats boost, Draining strikes ...
Each event will offer you a whole new way of fighting. Win a fight, and you gain either credits, boosts, or other attractive prizes. Lose it, and you *lose* what you should have gained.
Now can you feel the pressure behind your decisions during the fight ? But that's for good ! Because with those hard earned credits, you will be able to buy combos, special moves, special outfits, boosts and other cool stuff !
Or you can still train calmly in regular matches, just search for the Dojo ;)
* Advanced Artificial Intelligence
Kinetic Damage's Artificial Intelligence has received a significant amount of work, to bring you a varied and intense experience.
Tactics, mistakes, retreats, neat combos, and even mindgames ... yes, mindgames, baiting for you to make a mistake. Every fighter you will meet will have its own personality,
may it be offensive, defensive, reactive, or a mix of them all. Even better : they're adjusting their "mind" according to *your* reactions.
Even, even better : you will be able to coach a cpu partner in the career mode, by giving him realtime strategy directions, on top of *his* own decisions.
Enter the fight ! And deliver the DAMAGE !
What's New in Version 1.6
- more challenging AI
- Optimizations & minor bug fixes
- iOS Game Controller support
Thank you so so so much for the update!!! Being able to map the controls on my MOGA is AWESOME!!! Also, the boost in AI strength is fantastic. I can't believe this isn't getting more attention. It's easily the best fighting game I've played on the iOS. The virtual controls are spot on (and I still play quite a bit with them, even though I have an MFi controller), the graphics are great, building your own fighter with so many different customization options and all the different fighting techniques was great and I think it, in a way, made me connect more with my character (especially when compared to playing with characters in Street Fighter, KOF or Samurai Showdown) and all the different modes are beyond amazing. Upgrading your character and learning your chosen artform adds an incredible amount of immersion, depth and even some customization which you just do not find in this genre too often, especially in the AppStore.
I would have felt just fine paying a premium price for this. $8-$12 would be a great pricing point. The game definitely deserves a higher price tag than what it has, and once multiplayer is added, it could jump up even higher.
I can't recommend this one enough. It's easily one of my top 3 favorite games of 2013, and probably my favorite fighting game on any gaming platform from the last 25 years.
This game is sweet. Truly amazing, fun and addictive martial arts battle in this app. Do yourself a favor and get it now!
