Sweet Studio brings us this platform style side scrolling fighting game. You take on the role of Tedd, the older brother of Kara, who seems to have lost her necklace. You must track down the necklace by fighting your way through a ton of street thugs that stand in your way.

When I downloaded this game the english translation was really bad in a good way. It brought me back to the days of “ALL YOUR BASE ARE BELONG TO US!!” This didn’t bother me at all since this is a fighting game and not an RPG. The story line was like an amusing brain twist in between boss fights. To my dismay an update was put out that fixed a lot of the text. It defiantly isn’t perfect now but you can actually follow the story line. All my screen shots are going to be before the update as an homage to bad translation so I advise you to click on them and see for your self.

The controls are fairly simple a single attack button to hit and taping where you want to move. At the bottom of the screen are three buttons for special moves that gradually replenish after use. You only get to control Tedd so if Kara gets beat up your S.O.L..

Several breakable items are placed throughout each stage like barrels and crates, once you smash them you can get bananas or meat which replenish Tedds HP (Health) or a heart that replenishes Kara’s HP. Each stage has a set timer and once the timer runs out its boss time. After each stage you are given SP which you can use to power up either Tedd or Kara. Tedd can raise his HP, AP (Attack), or special moves where Kara can only level up her AP.

Tedd has the main story mode and a survival mode where you just duke it out until you cant anymore.

This game was quite challenging for me, around stage four I was constantly dying at each boss fight and it would take me a few tries to pass the stage. Over all I would say its fun, the graphics were well done, a rocking sound track, and a WTF story line that was hilariously confusing.
