NOTE: There's a newer remake of this game on Itch.io. link

Never punch down, always punch up (and punching sideways is ok)

First "full game" made in the godot engine. Decided to make something short and sweet for a first project, so it isn't anything too fancy, just a generic highscore game.


"A" and "D" to move in the air.

Arrow keys to punch in a direction.


Punching down or getting hit by enemies removes health.

Punching enemies in any other direction but down gives you health.

Punching down on the floor or punching enemies in any direction boosts you up in the air.

Punching in the air removes stamina. No stamina means no more punching in air.

Punching enemies replenishes stamina.

Very Tricky

This was a very tricky game the gameplay is sharp and keeps you on your toes also love the balck and white themed element here Not bored with this at all allowing the player to focus on the fun gameplay so for me this game was a nice touch some good style and flavour and you just make it work right from the start, Its games like this that really spark some good interest and fun elements, Fun and edgy game


Never always punch punch down UP

Sounds like some sort of konami code lol, sorry

Works great thanks! :D
It's a pretty weird game, but I like it.

Hello! Sorry about the medal thing, I forgot the newgrounds api disconnected every hour. I think I've made a solution to keep it connected, but if all else fails your score and medals are checked and uploaded when the game is reset. Hopefully it works! Thank you.

Surprisingly fun! I would only wish for an option to switch wasd/arrow keys to punch with wasd and move with arrows. Oh, as I noticed on the highscores board few people reached scores over 10 000, but that medal was not unlocked by anyone, which means the higher medals can be broken.

WallOfMouthes responds:

hihi, i've added keybinds so you can swap wasd and the arrow keys manually, thx for the suggestion! Some people on the leaderboard don't have medals since i added medals quite a bit after i added the leaderboard which already had 10,000+ scores. They should work (hopefully).
Thanks for the review!

edit: i am dumb. They are broken but I can't find the reason why. I'm still looking into it atm, apologies. (edit 2: the new update hopefully finally fixes the medals issue)

this game is best. good like, yes? yes. am correct, play game immediately now man. man play game have yes? good time have yes good time, good yes, correct. which why you play game. now please man, correct? correct.
