Way of the Passive Fist (2018)

You’ve seen plenty of beat ‘em up games where you move from left to right, punching everything in sight.

But beat ‘em ups where you don’t punch anyone? That’s unique.

That’s the idea behind Way of the Passive Fist, a game with a completely unique premise: you play as the Vagabond, a hero who walks across a desolate post-apocalypse world to end the evil overlord’s reign of terror.

To do so, you’ll need to parry every one of your opponents’ moves until they’ll be tired enough that a simple flick will send them crashing to the ground. You’ll need to be precise in your movements if you hope to survive.

The beautiful universe, desolate yet colorful, will make you want to keep playing with its visual style reminiscent of cartoons from the 90s.

Way of the Passive Fist is a mesmerizing game that will hook any player looking for an innovative experience.
