Ravenous Games has revealed that their latest upcoming project Beatdown, which we first caught wind of early last month, is finally ready and will be releasing on November 15th. Beatdown is an aptly-named side-scrolling beat 'em up with heavy inspiration from the classics of the arcade era like Double Dragon, The Simpsons Arcade Game, and Final Fight. It features Ravenous's wonderful pixel art style, and a pretty sweet soundtrack to boot. Check out the newest trailer.

Ravenous has revealed in our forums that Beatdown will launch as a Universal app that supports iCloud save syncing. It will also support the Retina Display equipped devices, the 4-inch widescreen of the iPhone 5 and new iPod touch, and will be priced at the impulse-ready point of 99¢. We really like these old-school brawlers and are looking forward to getting our hands on Beatdown next week, and we'll have more for you when it finally hits the App Store.

    Only 20 levels? No endless mode?

    I'm ready!  Random Heroes was a bit of a letdown for me :).

    Bit of an odd move not to put a catchy chip tune in there. Generic rock doesn't fit.

    Also I wonder what the frame rate of this will be. The League of Evil games both ran at 30fps, which is far too low for a 2D game. 2D MUST be 60fps. It's as simple as that. And to be frank, any iOS dev incapable of getting a 2D game at 60fps on current gen hardware should find a new career, as their coding skills aren't up to much.

    It's odd that we haven't seen a port of Scott Pilgrim on iOS yet. It had great art, a phenomenal chip soundtrack, and played really well on the Xbox and PS3. It's leagues ahead of stuff like this in every way.

      I was just thinking of that game. I'd definitely buy it if it were in ios. Scott Pilgrim FTW!!
