Vilnius, Lithuania – Eligo Games today is pleased to introduce Cutout Fighter 1.5 for iOS, which is available for free Limited Time. It is a Retro style game based on a fast-paced 2D fighter game engine utilizing pixelated-style graphics with blood free paper effects and mini games inside of it. Set in a world where everything, including the characters, is made out of paper, players must fight their way through levels of opponents to reach, battle and destroy the paper-consuming nemesis, The Black Hole. With the survival of Paper World on the line, players must cut, slash, tear and dissolve opponents, to reach the powerful boss and win the game.
“Cutout Fighter is the 2D casual fighting game you’ve been waiting for,” stated Eligo Games’ CEO Pavel Laurs. “Created for gamers by gamers, available free for a limited time and injected with mini games, Cutout Fighter throws you into Paper World, where you’ll have to build your skill to feel free to leave.”
Cutout Fighter’s imaginative storyline blurs the line between game and reality. Set in Pixel Universe’s Paper World, in the depths of the Game Designer’s mind, the peaceful cutout paper inhabitants must battle a vengeful creature created and discarded by the Game Designer. This creature, The Black Hole, wants to destroy all of the paper inhabitants of Paper World. To save their world, the paper characters must fight other paper characters to advance levels and to destroy the Black Hole.
Choosing from seven characters and seven battle settings, players battle with kicks, punches, jumps, and specialized moves like cuts, tears, and dissolves, to defeat opponents. Much more than a simple push button fighter, Cutout Fighter players have special Paper Overdrive challenges, where they compete against the clock to employ specialized fighting moves.
Timed Paper Overdrives are divided into four categories according to the type of damage they inflict: Cut, Tear, Dissolve, and Cremate. In Cut Paper Overdrives, players must accomplish tasks such as using finger swipes to trace slash lines and inflict damage on competitors. In Tear Paper Overdrives, player tasks include trying to beat the clock in tearing limbs from opponents using ropes and gears. In Dissolve Paper Overdrives, players complete timed tasks such as filling test tubes with the correct potion formula to dissolve an opponent. In the Cremate Paper Overdrive, players must construct a flamethrower before time runs out, to incinerate their opponent.
With over 1,500 hand-drawn images, an 8-bit music soundtrack, and more than 200 sound effects, Cutout Fighter is 2D gaming art. Cutout Fighter’s cartoon characters feature animated paper effects and avoid the bloody animation of many 2D Fighter games. Players choose from seven characters, seven unique game locations, Tournament or Single Game play mode, and three levels of difficulty in this highly customizable, fast and dynamic arcade style game.
Cutout Fighter features many fun-to-unlock upgrades for characters and settings. Upgradable characters have abilities that increase the game challenges and fun. Upgradable and standard game settings include Paper City, Hospital, Secret Garden, Dream World, Savannah, Secret Base, and Beta Ground. Changeable settings and characters make this a dynamic game that players will enjoy. Players may play a quick game for a few minutes or an extended hours-long, skill-perfecting marathon.
