Pocket Rumble

Pocket Rumble takes inspiration from the legacy of 2D fighters that precede it, especially the SNK fighters for the Neo Geo Pocket. The goal is to reduce the level of execution and memorization to the minimum necessary to retain all the core 2D fighter mechanics and game-play elements.

There is an exciting new indie game on Kickstarter titled Pocket Rumble. According to the developers, Pocket Rumble is inspired by the SNK fighters for NeoGeo Pocket, featuring Street Fighter style gameplay and an 8-bit art style.

Aside from inspirations from classic NGPC titles, Pocket Rumble also packs quite a few new features, some of which are quite innovative:

– Double Blind character select (online/offline)
– ELO ranked mode
– Ghost AI
– GGPO support
– Backup characters
– Lesson mode
– Mod support
– In game display of hitboxes and frame data
