Step into the ring with a cast of quirky cartoon characters, just waiting to beat the stuffing out of you! Facebreaker is an arcade-style boxing game where you and your opponent duke it out in a set of three rounds until one of you is knocked out. If a winner is not decided after three rounds, the game goes into ‘Sudden Death’ mode, and the first person to KO wins. The game also has a difficult to perform ‘Facebreaker’ move – if you perform this move on your opponent, you instantly win the match.
You can throw low punches and high punches, grab your opponent, or perform a strong attack. By repeatedly attacking with low or high punches, you’ll build up your ‘Breaker Meter’. If you hit with a strong attack when the Breaker Meter is filled, you’ll perform a Hay, Bone, Ground, Sky or Facebreaker – depending on how full it is. You can also use the shoulder button to block. If you block and use your low or high punch before your opponent hits you, you’ll perform a Parry, which counters their oncoming attack.
The game also allows you to custom-create your own boxers. You can do this either just by using the game’s editor on its own, or, if you have a camera, you can take a photo and the editor can use that as a starting point for your fighter. You can even upload and download other custom-created boxers to see other people’s creations!
