First of all you mentioned that the game would take 15 minutes to download which was going to put me off because a game that requires that much load time doesn't make sense on Newgrounds, and instead should be on something like itch.io. However, i went to the bathroom to piss, came back and it was done. So unless the user has a horrible PC, it should be a minute or two. Now to the game, the game is a fighting game, which I am not super good at, but I have a deep understanding of their mechanics. Basically I know what makes a good fighting game. On to the game, I think it's cool you are trying to make a fighting game, and i support your decision to do so, however there are some issues.
1. The music sucks, like straight up, i was writing this review and had the music in the background and i had to mute my PC because it was droning on and on. And this music was in the training mode. You never want bad music in a training mode because people who play fighting games and get good at them inevitable spend countless hours in training mode practicing, and with shitty music everybody is gonna mute the game. This isn't to make your day bad or anything but it's an issue and it can be resolved, hopefully in a late build.
2. The special move motions are counter-intuitive, inputing right twice or left twice to do a move is bad because tapping left and right is used in spacing all the time, i was trying to move closer to my opponent and i would fire off a move all the time. use down-right or down-back. those are still easy inputs, MK11 style. But using down insures that it's not too bad. Also make the input for specials faster so they dont bleed over into other moves like i said above. This is a pretty easy fix and would help the game a lot.
3. The game has bugs, yes i know it's a prototype but if i don't tell you, then you might miss them. The only major one i found in my short time with the game was that training mode is broken and needs to be reworked.
Hey thanks for the feedback I really appreciate it will help me fix the necessary issues of the game yeah I know the music is terrible and the bugs are too many. as for the loading time I will work on that in due time.
