Veteran Combat is a fun & retro 2D side-scrolling (arcade) fighting game for PC. Don't take it too seriously! ;)

Veteran Combat is a 2D side-scrolling (arcade) fighting game for PC.

Be the leader of a small military unit from the 1940s. By defeating fifteen opponents, your goal is to convince the other members of the team that you are the one in charge. The fighting takes place in a tournament consisting of twelve scenes.

Twelve selectable characters and three hidden main opponents await the player. Playable characters include Igor the grenadier, Julia the nurse, Captain Ballast the sailorman, Dr. Bloodpressure the field surgeon, Natasha the spy, as well as several others emerging from the milieu of the 1940s.

As for control, Veteran Combat follows the usual and proven standards used in other games of the genre, thus the basics can easily be mastered. Practicing the use of combos and hidden key combinations allows more spectacular and effective charges on the opponents.
Please read the manual.

Fields of Battle
The fighting takes place on twelve exciting locations, such as the wings of a plane flight, the top of a traveling train, or even the dizzy heights of a viaduct.

All the scenes of the game are filled with the musical ambience of the 1940s, be it in a smoky pub or the dubious and fishy piers.

The Fight
Apart from the regular punches and kicks, several combo movements can be called forth. Through hidden key combinations ten kinds of extra attacks and wizardry, peculiar to almost each character, can be involved.

Choose your skill
The three adjustable difficulty levels (from novice to professional) provide for three different levels of challenge in tournaments.

Replay – when you need evidence
The duels can be recorded and played back, so there is no need to assert that you have really defeated this or that hidden character.

Varied and eventful game play
Having launched the game, the player can choose from the following options on the mainscreen:

  • beginning a tournament and face all the opponents, one after the other, and, finally, celebrate the victory with all the fighters (tournament);
  • challenging a friend for a quick duel played on the same computer, matches can be played with two teams, each consisting of up to three players (face 2 face, teamfight);
  • instant action with an unlocked (that is, already defeated in tournament) opponent (instant fight);
  • entering a quick fight against a master, whose skill level can be freely set by the player (training mode);

Reasons why this game is different
  • visual appearance resembling old black-and-white films
  • digitalized characters
  • humor
  • eventful scenes
  • atmospheric music reminiscent of the 1940s

Some people think that "Mortal Kombat" was a good game. The Peña no longer remembers when, in the early 90, it was the only machine in the arcades that remained empty when all the others were busy and queued. Or the same is that I lived in a weirdo city with even rarer players. Be that as it May, "Mortal Kombat" It was a game with a certain dose of originality, while it was one of the first to use digitized images of warriors (with the permission of the "Pit Fighter", and the digitized dolls of the "Chinese Exorcist"), combined with Notable doses of gore sadist. Okay, and the music wasn't bad at all. That Said, "Veteran Combat" is revealed to us as a sepia version, seasoned with a "vintage" filter, from "Mortal Kombat". A game created by Hungarians, with a negligible budget, an absolute lack of the sense of ridicule, and a quality that oscillates between the beggar and the pillbox. Because, in fact, "Veteran Combat" is a game of low kiln, where we will fight 1VS1 or teams with characters characterized at the time of the second World War, not without having gone through the minds of some designer leftover heroin in the veins. A pastiche of difficult digestion that is so bad, that you end up laughing. Surreal Characters, animations of few frames, absurd characterizations, quasi-static scenarios, palette of underused colors, soundtrack Mondonguera, Combos Delirious and, in general, a physics as unlikely as crazy. In other words, a "Mortal Kombat" of eastern Europe. I Recommend your purchase to all those fanatics of $ or € in their portfolios that want to contribute to the sustainable and technological development of the Hungarian videogame industry. Who knows, the same thing here a few years, are able to do some quality.
