I.D.E.A.L., a company led by Dr. Baldrick and his wash bucket (which was built for assistance) assistant WASHY, has a hold on the world and it’s tendrils in every business (though they are mostly famous for their snacks). In the year 200X, however, I.D.E.A.L. has nearly obtained it’s actual objective: turn Dr. Baldrick into a PERFECT BEING. Thanks to the efforts of multiple labs across the globe, hundreds of overtime hours, countless lives, and 42 missed kids' birthdays, Dr. Baldrick will finally be able to obtain his life’s ambition: PERFECTION.

That is, of course, unless there was someone (or something) to stop him.

Take control of the failed experiments Rose, Ángel, Deckster, and Boogie and help them escape from Dr. Baldrick’s clutches. Fight through a scientist and robot riddled lab, take the fight to the streets, and, eventually, THE WORLD!

But escape is not enough! You must travel the globe and stop BaldrickWASHY, and the evil, ever present, globally oppressive company I.D.E.A.L. the only way you know how: WITH YOUR FISTS!

Gameplay não comentado (Uncommented gameplay)

Thanks for playing! Hope you enjoyed it! :D

My first beat'em up was Battle Toads & Double Dragons, and from what I've experienced this game is a destined classic of the modern era for beat'em ups! The music got me so hyped and I loved the influence of 90's - early 00's cartoons! After recently finishing Streets of Rage 4 and River City Girls, I can say that the grabbing mechanics in this game are the most fluid and intuitive which complement the gameplay's fast paced nature. I hope there will be air combos and more meter abilities (fingers crossed)! The small bit of voice acting was great as well! ^_^

Thanks for playing, Slumber Pumpkin! We're glad you enjoyed it! We're actually working on an update to the Demo before we launch the Kickstarter, so please keep an eye on it if you can! Hopefully, you'll like it too! Cheers! :D

git gud! this game is pretty hardcore. love the graphics. but just like h.k. your gonna need to learn how to efficiently traverse this game. like the death screen suggests... GIT GUD

Thank you, we're glad you liked it! We definitely want the game to be challenging! We have a Kickstarter coming up soon to support the full development if you're interested! :)

I'm a big fan of beat em ups so I'm looking forward to this game's completion! Love the character designs and combos setup and that first boss looks like he's gonna pack a punch the only little issue I had was with the motion blur with the camera but other than that you got me as a fan of this project!

Thank you! We have a Kickstarter coming up soon, so please check it out if you have a chance!

Does it work on windows 7 32 bit

Sorry for the late reply, but it doesn't seem like the game will work on 32 bit operating systems. We apologize for this!

This was a super fun demo but, a skip button on that intro would've been nice. Other than that it was very entertaining and I love the character design. The music was pretty epic as well and everything ran pretty smoothly!

Would it be okay if I could add the trailer to Brawlers Avenue? *its a youtube channel that's dedicated to Brawlers of all kinds.

Sure thing! Please let us know once its up, we'd love to see it! :D

Excellent demo, the work behind it is enormous. It has a lot of potential to become a new classic. I would only like to suggest more fluidity in the dialogues of the story sections (in my case, the text boxes were slow and the game in general is going well for me). Just that, I hope you succeed in the Kickstarter!

Glad you enjoyed it overall! We've definitely noticed that the story sections can be a bit slow too. We'll make a change to it for sure! Thank you for playing! :D

This is freaking awesome, I love the art & animations, you can clearly see the passion! I got really far but it was kind of difficult to me because I normally use WASD controls, I would like to see custom controls in this game. Anyways, very cool art & music, hope this project continues!

(+1)

Thank you! :D Hopefully we can continue developing it if the crowdfunding campaign works out! There will definitely be customizable controls in the complete version of the game!

This game is insane! I love the graphics and SFXs. This game has a ton of potential and is well on its way to becoming something HUGE. If the demo was this good, I wonder what the full version will look like!!

Thank you Sundae! We're looking forward to making the full version so much! ^_^
