If you’re anxious to dive into this week’s new iOS releases there’s at least one game which has jumped the gun and is now available earlier than expected. That game is Appsolute’s Fright Fight (Free), an arena fighting game in a similar vein to Nintendo’s Super Smash Bros. series. The theme for Fright Fight is classic horror characters, and the initial release of the game features four playable characters: Werewolf, Vampire, Grim Reaper and Yeti. You can get a pretty good idea of Fright Fight by checking out the launch trailer.
So far, early impressions in our forums are pretty mixed. One huge factor about Fright Fight that’s worth noting is there’s no single-player offline mode, it’s strictly an online multiplayer affair. Right now there simply isn’t all that many people in the player pool, so it’s tough to really see how the mechanics of the game will hold up in competition. From what little people have been able to play, it seems the fighting system is a tad on the simplistic side. We’ll have to wait and see how things shape up. I think one thing everyone agrees on is there’s massive potential for Fright Fight, but it isn’t quite there yet. Still, it’s free to download and try, so if you’re itching for a new mobile brawler be sure to give it a look.
