Arms2d is a 2d fan demake of Nintendo's upcoming game, Arms (my fan game is not endorsed in any way by Nintendo) While Nintendo's game is a complex over-the-shoulder fighting game, my simple fan project is a free-for-all Super Smash Bros. style beat-em-up.
What does Arms have that Arms2d doesn't have?
Arms2d has one set of gloves - Arms has a bunch of different gloves that takes the strategy of the game to a whole new level
Arms2d only has one stage - Arms has many unique stages
Arms2d only has one game mode - Arms has quite a few really interesting game modes
Arms2d doesn't have online multiplayer - Arms has online multiplayer with some really awesome features
Arms2d has some simple pixel art characters - Arms has intricately designed and highly detailed 3d models
Arms2d is a simple game made by a fan - Arms is an incredible looking game made by one of the greatest video game companies of all time
So, if Arms2d is so terrible, why should I play it?
Arms2d is publicly available right now, Arms isn't.
You can play with up to 4 people locally on your own PC using a keyboard and mouse or gamepad.
Or you can play against some AI controlled characters
Arms2d doesn't cost any money
I personally think that Arms2d is actually kind of fun despite the fact that the real Arms is way better
If nothing else, I hope this game is a fun little distraction that keeps you occupied until the real Arms is released.
