Superfighters Deluxe is an action platformer in the style of the more popular Worms or Soldat games, in which the multiplayer is a key element. In this 2D action side-scroller there's no game story, lore, or campaign – you just start the game and join a match for pure, intense, multiplayer combat. You can quickly join the game or host one by yourself. Since I hadn't previously heard of this game and I hadn't expected many players to be online, I was pleasantly surprised to notice that there were plenty of servers available, populated with quite a lot of players, waiting for new people to join.
Many of these servers had distinct specifications, such as ones dedicated for melee-only combat. Though there was no tutorial to introduce me to the game, I quickly found my way around. The action was simple yet captivating and entertaining, basically resumed to controlling your character, moving it around, shooting, and eventually “killing or be killed”. I was playing the game for my first time and after 2 minutes I was already having fun.
The graphics of the game are not sophisticated, but there are a lot of maps and sufficient customization options to compensate. A neat map editor is also included, and the numerous weapons add to the complexity of the game.
I'm usually very reticent when it comes to such lesser-known games that I haven't heard of yet and that are not listed on Steam or on any other popular gaming platform, but Superfighters Deluxe managed to convince me. It's neat, cute, and really entertaining.
