Killer Instinct

The third installment in the series of fighting games started in the nineties. The game was developed by Double Helix Games, creators of Green Lantern: Rise of the Manhunters and MX vs. ATV Reflex. In Killer Instinct the player assumes the role of a warrior of his choosing and fights against computer opponents or human rivals (cross-platform playing is supported). Among the characters one can find many interesting individuals – including ones well known from previous entries in the series (for example Thunder, Jago, Sabrewulf and Glacius). Each character has unique abilities and combat tactics. The rivals are facing each other on two-dimensional arenas with hand-drawn backgrounds. The battles itself are arcade and very dynamic – the players can perform many attack combinations, blocks, and special attacks. Rich social features are an interesting addition. Killer Instinct offers 2,5D graphics and uses cel-shading technology thanks to which the characters and locations have a comic book-like look.
