In idea, Bounty Battle is the Tremendous Smash Bros. of indie video games. In actuality, Bounty Battle is nothing wanting a catastrophe. It is a terribly made brawler that, at its worst, is borderline unplayable. It is a joyless, nearly baffling expertise that’ll make you surprise how on earth it even managed to safe characters from Owlboy, Darkest Dungeon, Guacamelee!, and a load of different indie hits.
All the nice that Bounty Battle does begins and ends with these character cameos. Recognisable designs like The Penitent One from Blasphemous have been recreated relatively properly, and seeing them litter the character choice display might be the spotlight of the complete expertise.
However even selecting your fighter is a chore. Apart from the aforementioned character fashions, Bounty Battle is a horrible trying recreation. It opts for a glitchy aesthetic that is paying homage to a tuned-out TV display, and it is an assault on the eyes. An incredibly primary UI is slapped on high of this, and it simply makes every part really feel extremely low cost. At a look, you would be forgiven for considering that Bounty Battle is flash recreation that somebody threw collectively in a day. However no, it is on the PlayStation Retailer priced at £19.99.
Sadly, Bounty Battle performs about in addition to it seems. The aim is to empty the well being bar of your enemies, however character animations are so primary and stunted that it is close to unattainable to inform what is going on on — particularly throughout three or 4 participant fights. The controls are responsive sufficient, however the launch is riddled with stuttering points on PS4 — fight simply by no means feels clean, and that is a nail within the coffin of any preventing recreation.
