Jail Fight

by Jungle - Jam Entry

Jail Fight is a 2 players (A.I. is not implemented yet) turn based fight management game that also adds a little bit of action with quick time events. The background is: in the prison you need to fight to live, win some cigaretts to buy stuff and get recognized.

Lacks GUI and feedback for the player, we are working on it.

How to Play:
*Each player must be one figther;
*Choose up to three actions per turn;
*Each action has a chance to be successful;
*You will be exposed if any action fails;
*Block action ends turn;
*Combo action can perform up to 5 strike actions at once;

Thats a cool idea and very good style of game. The pixel art was well done too!

Really enjoyed the game, good job, i just think maybe the "lucky chance" to hit the other player was sometimes too big, in a way i had to choose the combo action more often to hit the other player more often. But its is a very good game, congrats!

Nothing better than the good old fight for a bunch of bad bored emprisioned guys! And all this with a great "Guile" style song playing in the background. Way to go, Jungle Studios!

Oh such a nice pixel art. Fun game. I loved the [?] option :D makes it all more dynamic and fun. Great job!

Cool graphics. I find "combo time" more effective than manual moves selection, though it has weird difficulty range (press Down twice or press some W, Down, A, Left, D). I also thought the opponent is AI-controlled and the goal is to fight all of these opponents, but instead I'm controlling both and losing when one of them does.

Really great visuals and music. The idea is intriguing but there wasn't a lot of feedback or juice and at times it wasn't immediately apparent what just happened. Some hit sounds would help a lot with this. I enjoyed the game quite a bit regardless!

Graphics and music were nice... but it seemed odd not to be fighting against some AI... even if it was just picking random moves

I loved the graphics and animation. The game is fun as well but a bit boring if you are the only one playing. An A.I. would have been nice.

Excellent idea, unfortunately the mechanics were too opaque. It was frustrating to keep seeing my character being tired.

Really nice idea for a local 2 players game ! And good realization !

I didn't exactly understood how they become tired though :o

Nice music. :D

The combo just didn't work for me.

And... It would be good to delimit areas of the keyboard for each player or something, and it would be interesting to put hotkeys for the actions, thus allowing better rotation between the players on the same computer.

It seems that the second player misses more movements.

It would be nice to have some sound effects for punches and such. Maybe voice acting and names for players.

Digging the pixel art style! Hard not to think of a multiplayer punch club game while playing, which is a cool idea. The first player seems to have a bit of an advantage due to the turn system, but it's still a pretty neat combat system. Also, cool to see something made in Godot for LD!

Interesting idea you have there.. Lots of possible ways to explore turn-based cobat in a fighting game! And the art is really nice as well. But one thing that killed the experience for me was the feeling that I had no agency over the result of the fight. I didn't quite understand why my actions failed so often and how I could prevent my enemy from hitting me after a failed attack. The lack of information regarding the chanced of hit of each attack and, therefore, the absense of a strategy behing the choice left me pretty much watching and hoping.
But congratulations for the theme usage! Very promissing indeed!

I like the idea and the graphics but the game feel could be better. Anyway very good job guys!

Great looking game, the pixel art and animations are really nice! The gameplay was also very nice, quick to learn. Great to see someone else also making local multiplayer games, It's a blast to play :)

Great job!
