I just tried this almost at random, and then wondered if there was an HG review. It is a spectacularly brilliant game, and proof that if you can dodge all the generic shooters and crappy waste of time bilge in the indie section, there are actually games worth finding. This isn't just a tolerably decent clone of a full retail game (as many of the better indies are), it's actually a good and inventive game in its own right. And uniquely for an indie game (in my experience), it actually has people playing it online. That's how good it is.

The game it reminds me of most, actually, is Super Smash Bros. It's like a more psychotic Smash Bros.

Anyway, I just wanted to agree emphatically with this review.

I'm just glad people are still playing this game. It would break my heart if I ever logged on and found it empty during the happy hour.

Here's a secret: I still don't know how to kick!

I haven't been able to find out how to kick either. I get the impression it comes from an unlockable skill, but I don't know for sure.

GOT IT! You click the right stick to kick, and left stick to sort of taunt (which looks dangerously like teabagging).

I knew how to taunt. It was popular when I first started, so I equioped the drop grenade when I die" skill and harvest the cheap kills.

Good find! I was sick of people pulling out kicks and being unable to respond.
