[prMac.com] Seoul, Korea - Dragon Nest Studio today is pleased to announce Ultimate Stick Fight 1.1 for iOS, an update to their sophisticated, side-scroller, martial arts brawler that includes 6 control buttons: move left, move right, lift object, punch, kick, and jump. Featuring dramatic 2.5D graphics plus animation of real martial arts moves, city streets are realistic with layers of depth, while combatants are stylized silhouettes. Players can upgrade Stats and Skills, execute deadly ground and air combo attacks, and create new combos. With parallax scrolling across 8 cityscapes, 40 levels of play, 3 difficulty modes, and 7 choices of BGM, Ultimate Stick Fight is ideal for the beat-em-up player seeking advanced controls, techniques, and visuals.
* Skill and Stat upgrade system
* Level up system
* 8 unique environments
* 40 stages with 3 difficulty modes
* Special skills with awesome effects
* Stunning actions
* Realistic fight moves
* Insane combo and air combo attacks
Left-thumb controls include left and right pointing arrows, which determine the direction the player is facing and the direction of movement. Right-thumb controls include: hold (lift object), punch, kick, and jump. During a fight, players may be able to lift a nearby object (e.g., a dumpster or telephone booth) above their heads, releasing it to kill multiple enemies. Players can learn and upgrade combos, which are executed using one of six different control button sequences (e.g., P-P-P-P or P-K-P-K).
Combos are made up of the same individual moves as the control buttons sequence, but mix in additional moves to enhance the effectiveness of the attack (e.g., spins or feints). Each combo has several levels and cost in coins and stars. Each combo has its own characteristics, having different ratings for damage, delay, attack point, and range. Moves and combos are executed at a blinding pace, faster than real life, body movement is highly accurate and detailed, and action is augmented with realistic motion-blur.
Besides Skill upgrades, Ultimate Stick Fight enables upgrading of six different Stats:
* Health Points - increases the maximum HPs
* Power - increases the attack damage
* Critical - increases the chance of a critical hit
* Defense - reduces the damage from the enemy
* Special - increases the special attack damage
* Rage - increases the speed of the rage gain
Thermometer health meters above fighters display their condition after each hit. Having defeated all enemies and completed one of forty stages, players receive money points, combo points, life points, overall stars, and reward coins.
"Ultimate Stick Fight is a beat-em-up action game with awesome combo moves," commented Jin Kim of Dragon Nest Studio. "You can feel the soul of the great martial arts masters!"
* Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad
* Requires iOS 4.3 or later
* 14.1 MB
