Looks a lot like the old NES game River City Rampage

Cute fighter with a little combo list, and it's not even a simple button smasher either. Beat a level with 3-5 waves to progress further.
Playable in landscape or portrait mode (here with a totally misplaced skip button). Ads-free costs a little $1, what i supportingly did.

If one would consider Endless Sniper a baby brother to Hitman Sniper, than this would be a little brother of Street Fighter, lol, sort of.

I agree that this is super worth the download and ad removal purchase! This game really captures the feel of those classic old school beat em up games, and you can tell the designer knows their stuff when it comes to the brawler genre. Highly, highly recommended!

This game is really fun and well made and way way way worth the price of the ad removal. The control scheme really works well and is fun to play for once!

The only thing is that blue background is bothering my eyes and has to go. For the love of all that's sacred. Pick another color. Please. Off white would have been neat lol.

What bothers me of the control scheme is no diagonal movement. I also find it difficult to perform special moves like L, D, R + A, but that might be me...

I'm finding the controls to be a little off in portrait mode though. Often times my left thumb will rest on the left D-pad key so I'm walking left then pressing B to attack only to see Squareboy now facing right doing nothing and I can clearly see the right D-pad button being pressed down with no fingers on it instead of B.

Are my fingers too fat or are the right D-pad and B button touch zones so close they virtually overlap ? Maybe these zones can be slimmed down a little because otherwise, it's a great game !

I didn't realize this was from the developer of Jack n Jill until I saw the billboard in game. No wonder it's so brilliant. My only complaint is that I found it too easy until I reached the hideout, which I am assuming is nearly the end of the game. Also the achievement for beating the bandana bully didn't register for some reason.

It's too late.
