Fairytales are some of the most prevalent stories in all of human history, regardless of what country you're from or what language you speak. Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk, and other stories of fantasy characters have persisted throughout all of history. In Fairytale Fights, you'll slice and dice your way through Taleville, a world where fairytale characters try to peacefully coexist. Unfortunately, when a new villain appears in town and threatens the fame of every character, four heroes must defeat him with a flurry of blood and gore. Despite its roots in the fantasy genre, this hack-n-slash title is definitely not for kids. Similar in style to games like God of War, Dante's Inferno, and Alice: Madness Returns, this is one adventure that's as bloody as it is entertaining.
Main Game Features
- 5 chapters of hack-n-slash action
- Over 100 unique weapons
- Local and online multiplayer
Fairytale Fights features all of the fantasy characters you know and love, including Snow White, Hansel and Gretel, the Gingerbread Man, and much more. Together, all of the fairytale characters live together in the picturesque town of Taleville, coasting on their fame and glory. One day, a shadowy figure known only as the “Little Tailor” shows up in Taleville and threatens to steal all of the characters' fame. As the inhabitants of Taleville take up sides, some fighting against and some fighting alongside the Little Tailor, the upbeat world turns into a violent and brutal fight. Playing as one of the four main characters, you'll slash, smash, and bash your way through a variety of fantastical levels filled with enemies, hazards, and magic.
At the start of Fairytale Fights, you'll pick your characters from one of four available options. You can play as Snow White, Beanstalk Jack, Little Red Riding Hood, or the Naked Emperor. The game's story can be played either solo or cooperatively, with two players painting the town red side-by-side. There's also an Arena mode where you can go head-to-head with your buddies in a fight to the bloody end. In the main story, you must progress through five unique worlds, each one modeled after a memorable fairtytale-universe. You'll decapitate enemies in the Candy Castle, dismember foes in the Lumberjack Lands, and generally spill blood wherever you go.
As you travel through the linear, 3D levels, killing bad guys and opening chests, you'll discover a wide variety of useful weapons. There's a huge arsenal of bladed weapons, blunt objects for bashing, and more. The game features a dynamic blood system that ensures the combat is visceral, brutal, and shocking. At the end of each chapter, you'll have to face off against a challenging boss, which usually requires a significant amount of skill to take down. While the combat can feel repetitive at times, Fairytale Fights is easily one of the most bloody games of all-time, which is hilarious when you consider just how cute and cuddly the rest of the art design is.
There's not a lot of complexity to Fairytale Fights, and that's mostly a good thing. If you're looking for a beat 'em up or hack-n-slash game that's got buckets of blood, Fairytale Fights will definitely deliver. The inclusion of local and online multiplayer makes this a great game for two-player co-op sessions, especially for players who don't want to think too hard.
The abundance of weapons, brutal violence, and great blood effects make Fairytale Fights an unforgettable action title, despite the handful of problems it has. If the premise of smashing fantasy characters into a bloody pulp sounds interesting, you'll probably love Fairytale Fights, so give it a try!
