FIST OF AWESOME

JohnBHave you ever wanted to punch a bear in the mouth? The answer is "yes", and the method is FIST OF AWESOME, a sidescrolling mobile beat-em-up game from I Fight Bears that has as much punching, kicking, flannel references and badassery as the all-caps title hints at.

FIST OF AWESOMETim Burr is about to have a celebration, but then there's a crash and a rumble and suddenly everybody's gone and things are on fire. Tim's fist becomes sentient and informs him the timeline has been compromised. Animals run free as intelligent creatures, most of them functioning as demented combat fiends outside of Bearhattan. Oh, and bears are in charge of everything. Kinda makes dirty apes seem tame, doesn't it? Tim immediately sets out, as who wouldn't want to save the world by punching bears?

The controls in FIST OF AWESOME very elegantly translate 2.5D combat to the touch screen. Slide your finger on the left side of the screen to move, tap the right side to punch, and swipe sideways to kick. Swipe up to jump, chaining that with an air kick if you like, and swipe down to stomp on enemies who have fallen to the ground. You can even stun, pummel and toss foes! Between levels you can upgrade your health, power, speed or special moves, but apart from that it's pretty much just you and a fistful of bear fur.

FIST OF AWESOME restores the awesomeness that is old school sidescrolling beat-em-ups. From the graphics to the bear- and beard-centric sense of humor that's laced through just about every screen, you'll be captivated by the strange alternate world Tim finds himself stranded in. The gameplay sticks to the basics but still manages to be exciting and fresh, all thanks to the solid core mechanic of punching bears in the face.

NOTE: This game was played and reviewed on the iPad 3. Game was available in the North American market at the time of publication, but may not be available in other territories. Please see individual app market pages for purchasing info.
