Disappointingly mediocre

Kotatsu Neko

As a long time fan of side scrolling fighting games I've enjoyed their recent resurgence with XBLA games such as Scott Pilgrim and Double Dragon Neon.

Sadly Beatdown is very mediocre. The combat is incredibly simplistic, it's really just a basic button masher and it soon becomes boring. From a visual standpoint it looks reasonable enough, with passable pixel art, but it limps along at a mere 30fps. That's inexcusable for such a basic looking game.

On the audio front it's pretty dreadful, with uninspired, bland music and equally bad sound effects. If you were expecting a catchy chip tune or two, you won't find them here.

Fun game for iCade mobile


I got the iCade mobile for Christmas and trimmed it so my new iPod touch 5th generation could fit in it, and got this game as the ION website said this is compatible with the iCade mobile. The game works great with this device and is a fun 32-bit side scrolling beat em up. It is a very responsive game for the iCade mobile and I recommend anyone with the iCade mobile should get it!

Great, but held back by controls.


I really like this game but the controls rebel against me during most chaotic fights. Left becomes right for no reason and I end up walking into a hit rather than avoiding it. The fighting is satisfying though and intense but I'd rather just be fighting the bad guys and not the controls. I've tried all three control types and 'thumb' is the best but there are still problems. 5 stars deserved if the devs can improve the controls because this game is defiantly a gem.
