Ratings and Reviews
Great game but missing a few things
I feel like this is the only mobile fighting game to have a actual competitive side. Or at least that’s what I would say if it had multiplayer.
The mechanics and controls of the game are fine. They’re not dumbed down enough to where it’s just taping but just complex enough for actual combos. It has a lot of competitive potential. Here’s the problem. There is no multiplayer, the thing that makes a fighting game truly fun for me. However I have spoken with the developer on the topic and he said that he is “working on it”. So hopefully the developer can bring a smooth online experience.
My other problem is that there is only one fighter. Well there’s actually two but you can only play one per week. Flappy, the original fighter, was taken out and replaced with splashy. They have an almost exact move set (besides the special) but it would be better if the A.I. played as the other character, similar to street fighter. I have again spoken with the developer and he said “flappy will return”. I understand why both fighters are not available so people will come back each week to play the new fighter but I would just prefer that the cast just gets bigger over time.
Overall the game is amazing but these two problems lower my score by 1 star. Mabye in future updates it will gain back my star but for now it’s staying at 4.
Amazing game with so much potential!
Flappy Fighter is the most authentic fighting game experience on mobile. It doesn’t try to completely port over the controls of regular fighting games, but it doesn’t dumb it down enough to the extent where it can even be called a fighting game. It finds this perfect balance of simplicity and complexity that makes it a must-have for any fighting game fan on mobile. The inspiration and homage to classic fighting games such as Street Fighter is just the cherry on top.
This game is the perfect groundwork to build off of. More unique characters in the future would put this game in the top 3 mobile games for me. Maybe Om-Nom as Zangeif or Doodle as Dhalsim?
In conclusion, this game checks all of the boxes for any fan of fighting games, and I can see it going only up from here!
The best mobile fighting game you can ask for
I don't normally leave app reviews but I really, rally want more people to discover Flappy Fighter. If you're even a casual fan of fighting games, this will scratch your adhd/10 min break time/waiting in line itch.
There's a core understanding and love of fighting games in its DNA and as someone who can ashtrays use more practice honing his combo and footsies game, I really appreciate an app that can deliver that.
The main cons is the lack of versus human players, different characters, and play modes but with such a good game production quality, deep but straightforward engine, and promises from the developer with more to come very soon including new characters, I'm invested for now. You don't need to defeat Shen Long to check this out!
