KickPunch is an old school Beat-'em-up game. Get your fighting skills tested by defeating all enemies in this three level action game.

It's a beautiful Sunday afternoon. Brian and Gloria Freezby are back in their home town for the weekend and are taking a stroll on Shaker St. together with their dog Dido. Suddenly, they are approached by a group of hooligans. One of them, visibly bigger than the others, steps out of the group. It's Brianโ€™s old rival - Arkian Joel. Arkian does some smack talk and orders a bunch of his thugs to grab Gloria and Dido. He then leaves his gang to take care of the Brian problem.

Brian faces the bad guys in fight and after defeating them continues down on Shaker St. determined to find Arkian and save his wife and dog.

It's time to kick ass and chew bubble gum. โœŠ

Ok, ok. There's no bubble gum in this game, ...yet! ๐Ÿ˜ˆ

  • ๐ŸŽฎ Use the Gamepad Luke! No seriously, the game can be played with a gamepad (xinput), so go ahead and try it.
  • ๐Ÿƒ D-Pad, Left Stick, Arrow Keys or WASD keys to move.
  • ๐Ÿ‘Š Press X (xbox), H, O or Enter to punch.
  • :rage3: Press A (xbox), J, P or Backspace to kick.

Here are some hints.

  • Move, move, move. Don't let the enemies surround you. Try to stack them together and then hit them.
  • Kicks knock enemies back farther than punches, but they do less damage.
  • Get food to heal yourself. The bigger the dish, the more hitpoints you'll get restored. Also, make sure you look behind the objects in each level.
