Fist Puncher, the highly acclaimed old-school side-scrolling brawler from Team2Bit, has launched on the OUYA, so if you’re looking to crank your testosterone levels up eight or nine notches, look no further. The game features all-new OUYA-exclusive content and plenty of punching fists
Fist Puncher follows a team of vigilantes led by Dr. Karate, world renowned neurosurgeon and black belt, as they perform unnecessary surgery on the crime lords that hold a lawless city in their brutal grip. The gameplay is true to the classic era of button mashing brawlers, as players choose from a colorful cast of characters and take to the streets to battle endless waves of thugs and ruffians. Featuring dozens of levels of mayhem, unlockables, easter eggs, special attacks, and RPG elements, Fist Puncher combines the glory days of multi-player beat ‘em ups with the frills and richness of modern games. Bust out the baseball bats, sledge hammers, and prison shivs, and prepare to mash pixel fists into pixel faces.

History

Development on Fist Puncher began in August of 2010, using the XNA framework and an assortment of free tools. Fist Puncher was first shown publicly at GDC 2012 as part of the IGN/GameSpy Indie Open House booth. In April of 2012, Team2Bit completed a successful Kickstarter campaign, raising $23,723 to fund the completion of the game. Later that year Fist Puncher was also awarded a spot in the Kickstarter Arcade and was exhibited at both PAX East and PAX Prime. Fist Puncher was released to Kickstarter backers at the end of 2012 and saw a wide release on Steam, GOG, Xbox, and Desura in Summer of 2013. In early 2014, Fist Puncher was released on the Ouya console.
