Do you like to play games that put your reflexes to the test? In that case, you will love One Finger Death Punch 2, a new game from Silver Dollar Games and a sequel to a great little arcade brawler. At first glance, it shapes up that this could be a real indie gem. However, we will probably receive the answer to that question on Monday, February 11th, which is when a free demo will become available.
In case you played the original, you will remember that the game requires quick reflexes, it is fast-paced and addictive, and it even features an official announcer. The good news is that you can expect all this in the upcoming demo, too.
In One Finger Death Punch 2, you are not able to move. However, you can still perform attacks by pressing a suitable mouse button or an adequate button on your controller. It is as simple as clicking the left mouse button to launch an attack to the left and right mouse button to attack…yes, that is correct, to the right.
The crucial thing to consider is that the opponent you attack must be in range. In case you misjudge the distance, prepare to receive a blow. A single hit is not enough to defeat an enemy – you will need two or three. The rivals become more difficult as you progress and some of them may try to switch sides or dodge your attacks. Some enemies even have weapons which you can block, deflect, dodge, or throw back. An imperative requirement is for the controls to be responsive to ensure your character reacts quickly.
Things Just Got Better
One Finger Death Punch 2 seems like an upgrade to a great idea. It is incredibly easy to learn but will get you hooked in a matter of seconds.
You can visit Steam to add the game to your wish list so that you don’t forget the demo release on Monday. The full version of OFDP2 is scheduled for release on April 15th. At this moment, we do not have the exact price, but the good thing is that the demo will be free.
