If you've recently found yourself craving an adventure game in the style of Super Smash Bros. Brawl, developer Reptile Games predicted your need ages ago and has spent its time preparing a fix. Sure, it's more likely Dion Koster and Tim Remmers, the creators of Megabyte Punch, have no prophetic abilities at all, but holy heck, they've done a bang-up job making the perfect game for you anyway.
While Megabyte Punch has immediate similarities with Nintendo's popular arena beat-em-up, it differentiates itself by packing a proper story mode, complete with RPG elements. You can customise your robot fighter, be it giving them a new paint job to adding upgraded weapons from parts scavenged from defeated foes (including a "devastating pelvic thrust attack", if you're so inclined).
Levels also appear very destructible, providing another unpredictable element to combat.
For co-op fans, the campaign mode allows up to four players to battle their way through Megabyte Punch's six levels and their various boss fights. And, of course, it has a free-for-all mode if you just want to smash some dudes.
Multiplayer is local only, though that's not unusual given it's the type of game the benefits immensely from a social environment in which one can quickly deliver the appropriate burn to his or her fellow players.
