Speakeasy Brings 1920s American Fisticuffs to the PS4
If you thought fighting games couldn't get any more simplistic than Divekick, developers Gun Media and SuperSoul would like to have a word with you about the duo's new game Speakeasy, a new fighter set in the American Roaring 1920s.
The rules of Speakeasy are simple: each round is ten seconds long, and each player only has three options: punch, block, or fake. One punch wins a round, but each action can only be performed one time per round. As such, if you miss your punch you can expect to lose the round.
There will be other modes to Speakeasy as well, adding more strategy to the bouts. As the developers explain on the PlayStation Blog: "Though the fight may seem simple from the get-go, the challenge gets a bit tougher when you switch up the game modes; Speakeasy will have 2′s and 3′s, which allows each player to use each move two or three times each match. Switching things up even more, Tag Team will pit teams of fighters against one another with a variety of settings that will keep things lively. King of the Hill will allow for up to four players to duke it out at the same time! You’ll have to be quick on your toes to remain King of the Hill though, as matches will continue on without interruption until the timer runs out."
Now that you're on the trolley about Speakeasy, make sure to keep an eye on it. You wouldn't want to be considered a rube or a bluenose. Bully!
