It is Friday again, time for the game of the weekend. This time I have a great beat em up game for you that reminds me a little bit of the game Power Stone for the Sega Dreamcast.
Little Fighters offers an astonishing amount of game modes starting with the usual 1v1 battles which can also be played as team battles with up to eight characters.It is a 2D fighting game at its core that is most fun when played in multi-player against human opponents.
Stage mode puts the human player against waves of opponents that become stronger over time and championship mode features a tournament.
The main fun in this game is the fact that you can play with up to four human players on one computer and up to 8 if you play over network. Those 4 vs 4 team battles are great, especially when everyone is sitting in the same room and you can see their faces and hear their screams.
All 24 characters have special movies which cost energy to perform. Some can throw fireballs, some can teleport around or summon swords.
You should take a look at the chart that explains how you control the special moves of every character in the game before you start ti play.
In Little Fighters 2, characters can be moved by pressing the respective up, down, left and right keys. The defend, jump and attack buttons are used to make the character perform an action. Attacking another character causes him or her to lose HP, represented by a red bar on the heads-up display. Each character also had special attacks that can be activated by pressing a certain combination of keys. Most of these special attacks take up MP, represented by a blue bar on the heads-up display.
Each character has access to a set of special attacks or moves that are performed with a combination of directional keys and other keys on the keyword. Some require you to hit three keys while others require more than that.
Remember to open up port 12345 if you plan to play network games. You can download Little Fighter 1 and 2 from the developer website. There is also a character guide available that you can use to find out more about each character offered in the game.
