Will Fight for Food: Super Actual Sellout: Game of the Hour Review
Will Fight for Food is an interesting game that straddles two genres. Is it an RPG? Or is the game a Brawler? Will Fight for Food falls someplace in the middle and through the combination of dialogue and combat, gamers will enjoy the interesting experience.
The game sticks players in the shoes of Jared Dent who is a former pro wrestler stuck in an American Town. The idea behind this game is getting his life straightened out, and reclaiming the glory Jared once had. Jared runs into people he knows in this game. The ideas behind Will Fight for Food gives gamers several option. The entire game can be played through dialogue. Or for gamers like myself, I donned the Luchador mask and attacked everyone. Jared can kick and punch his way through anything. This game fits the mold of such 90s classics as Streets of Rage or Final Fight.
I attempted to go the the route of utilizing the dialogue, which in some parts, the options were pretty funny. But, I decided it was more fun to beat people. Most of the side quests I did involved me beating people instead of attempting to follow the dialogue trees. There were several game play areas Jared could wander into and try to solve issues between NPCs through witty dialogue. An example is will gamers confront the Mayor to solve a conflict between townspeople? Or gamers can beat the Mayor and take his office.
The game is pretty short. Gamers can finish the main game in under an hour. But there are things gamers can do after the game and there is a mod section which could lead to some interesting stuff. One of the more interesting elements of the game was that Jared has an inventory. It contains items he can wear, which will increase his base stats such as health, defense, and speed. I was hoping there would some sort of weapons I could use.
My biggest gripe for the game includes two things. I wasn't able to get my usb controller to work and I was hoping there would be support for this. The game is very short. It was fun, but I have a hard time recommending it for $5 unless you are a fan of Brawler RPGs or are looking for something that is a little different.. The other big gripe I had was the hit detection. I would attack enemies and miss several hits. I would back up a step and I could take them down. There is a lot of potential in this game, but it needs a little work and hopefully there is content coming which will make Will Fight for Food longer
Score 3 out of 5
