--------- About This Month’s Game ---------

If you watch the trailer you’ll notice right away that this game is heavily inspired by Smash Bros (for example, the iconic 0% health bar that fills as you take damage). And since every gamer loves Smash Bros, clearly we need to try out its indie counterpart ASAP!

I’ve run across other similar indie games in the last couple years, and this seems to be the most polished of the bunch. And don’t worry, there are no golden hammer powerups to mess up your day :P

--------- Additional Information ---------
