Dragon Ball FighterZ
Dragon Ball FigtherZ is a 2.5D fighting game developed by Arc System Works and published by Bandai Namco where characters from the popular Dragon Ball universe fight each other. Unlike the previous Dragon Ball games, FighterZ uses the Tag Battle mechanics. We create a team of three different characters between which we can switch anytime we want to when fighting. Doing so allows us to execute powerful combos and special attacks. The battle ends when all of our characters have zero health points. Action takes place on 2D arenas, but all of the remaining elements of the game are 3D. It allowed the developers to use advanced graphical effects and stylized animations to make the game look like the classic anime.

Again, the player assumes the role of a muscular basketballer who traverses diverse locations and fights various enemies, as well as powerful bosses. In combat, Shaq makes use of a set of techniques, punches, combos and power-ups. What is also helpful in eliminating the opponents, is the presence of destructible environments and different weapons. As the game progresses, the protagonist develops their skills in order to face more and more powerful enemies, and eventually, the mysterious Black Star Ninja.
Fire Pro Wrestling World
Another entry in a fighting games series that is popular in Japan. The thing that distinguishes Fire Pro Wrestling World from other wrestling games are the game mechanics. Action is presented from an isometric point of view and almost each element of the gameplay can be adjusted to suit our preferences. This is mainly connected with the wrestlers – in the beginning we get 30 players but we can also create our own wrestlers by choosing not only their appearance but also their preferred attacks (we can choose from more than 2000 attacks) and even a script that is responsible for their behavior. In addition to that we can also customize a referee that oversees fights and arenas – we can, e.g. put an electric fence or a mine field between players and audience. Besides classic fights we can also participate in online matches that can be played by up to four players. Fire Pro Wrestling World uses a 2D cartoony graphics.

Fighting October 2017
A crossover between a 2.5D platform game and a brawler, developed by Romanian studio Angry Mob Games. Players take part in duels waged on small arenas, filled with rock formations and simple structures. In order to win you have to push your opponent off the ledge down to the ground or reduce their energy to zero. Brawlout offers a cast of playable heroes, each one featuring a unique set of stikes – individual attacks can be developed and modified as you continue to make progress. Besides, each hero has a deadly attack, called Rage, which can be launched after filling a special bar. Among the playable characters there are e.g. an agile monkey with a chain, or a Yeti, able to freeze his opponents. Brawlout can be played either solo (throughout the story campaign) as well as with up to seven other players online or locally on one screen. The game features an eye-pleasing graphics design kept in cartoonish stylistics.
A sequel of the Polish fighting game developed by World Software in 1994. After more than two decades, the creators have decided to work on a continuation. You assume the role of Franko from the original title, who was washing dishes in Great Britain for years. Finally, he makes up his mind and goes back to his hometown in Poland. The hero’s turbulent past got him into new trouble, which assault him already on his way home. Having arrived, Franko has to face a new, dangerous enemy along with hordes of his thugs. Mechanically, gameplay is similar to beat’em up titles from arcade machines and comes down to going through locations and eliminating waves of enemies with bare fists and quite a wide arsenal of weapons which can be taken from the enemies. Stylistically, the sequel follows in the original’s footsteps. The title mocks Polish reality of life, current events, and famous people.
