Okinawa Rush is an incredible new 2D side scrolling beat-em-up with fantastic pixel art animation, fast and flowing combat, and a massive Street Fighter-esque move-set with a wide array of attacks and special abilities.
Okinawa Rush takes the classic 90’s style arcade side scrolling brawler and infuses it with modern game design and fast skill based combat. As well as having a vast array of attacks which are pulled off using Street Fighter-style button combinations, you are also able to parry pretty much any attack if you can time it correctly.
The current build of Okinawa Rush features a Training Dojo and a whole story based level packed full of brutal combat. There’s a lot going on in the game, with you battling enemies, avoiding traps, fighting bosses, discovering secrets, collecting loot and saving hostages.
The combat is fantastic throughout and the story’s fun too, with some of the best one liners since Schwarzenegger’s Commando – such as “I hope you don’t mind that I brought some guests…….my FISTS!”. It’s a fun game that really is a blast from start to finish – a superb slice of retro arcade action that we highly recommend checking out.
Note: We highly recommend checking out the Training Dojo before playing the main game as it will teach you some moves and increase the stats of your character!
