My Gaming Pick of The Week: Fist of Awesome
Every week, I will try and bring you a game that I think you should check out.
This week, I have chosen a game called Fist of Awesome. This is essentially a beat-em-up game.
You play the time-travelling lumberjack Tim Burr(cue impending rim shot). He is on a mission to correct the timeline by punching bears (and other animals) in the face and save humanity. You can punch, kick, and do a jumping kick. However, tapping and holding on a second of the screen releases the special move known as the fist of awesome. You have a main story mode (with the above plot).
You also have an arena mode, where you have to kill as many bears as possible in the alloted time.
The reason that I picked this game is because it reminds me of the golden age of beat-em-ups in the early 1990s. It reminds me of games such as Final Fight, Streets of Rage and Double Dragon. Additionally, the game is very easy to pick up and play. The soundtrack on this game is just awesome.
Fist of Awesome is available for Android and iOS and is priced at £1.49/$1.99/€1.79. You can also get it on Ouya and GameStick.
