Cold Beam Games has come up with something pretty interesting and unique this time around. Martial Arts Brutality is a new concept in the old One Vs One KO(Knockout) genre. The game gives you the chance to master the art of Kung Fu, letting you control the Chi Energy and perfect the legendary Dim Mak death touch.
In traditional knock out games, you usually control your player through joysticks and use a certain combination of keys for your offense, defense and counter moves. However, this game does it differently.
In Martial Arts Brutality, you play the card for your move and then make the pattern on the screen to successfully complete your move. You need to be careful and quick while drawing the pattern as these moves can be easily countered by the opponent and you can take some serious damage through those counters. This game can also be played online with your friends or you could play this game with random people around the globe.
There is a quest mode in Martial Arts Brutality where you travel the world fighting the most skilled warriors, as you go on and beat your opponents to a pulp, you start to earn belts. The black belt is the highest level of the game and you only get there after you’ve completed all the quests. The bounty on your head increases with every fight you win. As you progress further and further into the game, it makes your situation more and more dangerous and fighters will be looking to bring you down in order to collect the bounty that is on your head.
Likewise, you can hunt down these fighters who have the biggest bounties on their head and collect the bounty as you finish them. Each time you level up, you get chests to open as rewards. These chests contain a number of different rewards, from fighting cards to money to be used inside the game and more.
This is not just a random card fighting game where you draw unique patterns and win. In order to truly master Martial Arts Brutality, you need precision, practice and speed.
Whenever you fight an opponent, you have two turns. In the first turn, you’re allowed to attack. 7 cards are at display and each card has a unique function. All of these attack cards have special highlighted features such as Adrenaline — the higher the Adrenaline the better the card.
The target of the card depicts the area you’re gonna deliver the damage. The effectiveness and power of the card are also displayed with blue and red circles. After you’re done with your attack you have to defend against your opponent. Defense is much simpler than attack but if you’re up against a highly powerful and skilled opponent, it might get tricky. While defending, you’re going to be shown a hand or foot coming from one end of the screen to another. It’s basically the punch or the kick that your opponent is throwing at you. You need to quickly draw a line against the green line of the opponent’s hand or foot. The bigger the line, the more damage you’re gonna take. If you draw the line perfectly you can counter the move with one of your counter-attacking cards and deliver extra damage to your opponent.
