It’s hard to provide something truly ‘exciting’ in games these days, and it gets harder as time goes by.
There was a time when people got off on games like pong, or space invaders. Simple games that brought something nobody had ever seen before, and could grab gamers by their necks for hours.
It proves more difficult nowadays. With hundreds, if not thousands, of games available, it’s hard to avoid the ‘been there, done that’.
However, some developers still manage to invent new things, innovative things that have never been done before. Things like Portal or Toribash.
Toribash is a free fighting game. Not just any fighting game though; not one of the button bashing kind.
Imagine a fighting game where two people are standing opposite of one other, trying to get the other one on the ground. Now add tact, lots of tact. Not a spoonful or even a handful of it, we’re talking buckets here.
Every move will be carefully planned. Step by step, joint by joint. You’ll be choosing which you want to contract or relax at what time. You’ll be composing your perfect fighting move.
You can fight your fights in both singleplayer and multiplayer. Winning multiplayer matches will earn you points, which you can use to purchase special items in the store. Customize your character and conquer the rankings.
Now, don’t you have that ideal fighting move in your head? The one you’d use if you were Chuck Norris beating up thugs? Of course, Chuck Norris doesn’t need cool fighting moves for mere thugs, he’d just blink them in half, but imagine you’d be Chuck Norris with a sense for drama and ballet, trying to impress someone. Yeah, THAT move.
Now keep on to that move and go grab Toribash. Try putting that move down, perhaps you even making it better by adding some extra whirls and kicks and spins.
Go ahead, amaze us. Amaze yourself.
It won’t easy though, but then again, something that’s worth it never is.
They don’t sell inspiration in any local stores, so I looked for it on YouTube. Here are some of the best Toribash moves available on the World Wide Web.
