Mugen or M.U.G.E.N is a phenomenal over the top 2D fighting engine that is free for good folks like your self to check out. If you like fighting games such as Street Fighter, King of Fighters, Mortal Kombat, and pretty much everything else then you are going to have a great time with this. Seriously, once you get deep into this you will be amazed at what you can do with this.
Now Entering The Battle!
The real draw for this is the limitless roster. You do have to download the characters, but there are many tutorials online that break this down. Anyway, the roster of characters at your disposal in Mugen (M.U.G.E.N) is mind-blowing. Have you ever wondered who would win in a fight between Lui Kang and Ryu? Well, that is one example of a fight you can make happen.
Ok, so putting a Mortal Kombat character against a Street Fighter one is the most obvious thing to do, but that is just the tip of the iceberg. Here is another example, have you ever wondered who would win in a fight between Homer Simpson and Butt-Head from Beavis and Butthead fame? Oh, and what if this fight took place in a WWE ring? There are hundreds and I mean hundreds of characters you can add to this game from video game characters to movie, TV and comic book ones. There is also a ton of backgrounds that you can add to the game as well.
Fighting Your Way
While the main game mode is the arcade mode which is to be expected there are other game modes on offer here in Mugen (M.U.G.E.N). The arcade mode will throw a series of random characters your way, before you fight the final boss. In the version I have been playing it is a giant Onslaught from Marvel vs Capcom that serves as the final boss, but for you, it could be different.
The fighting action of the game is easy to get to grips with. The characters play as you would expect and it supports up to six-button fighters. Not all characters use the six buttons for their attacks, but playing around with each character and figuring them out is the way to go and this is also a great deal of fun.
Fighting With Friends
The most fun I have had with this game is playing it with my friends. You have a few different game modes that you can play in multiplayer, but there is one above all the rest that me and my best buddy had a lot of fun with. The idea is that you pick a roster of fighters and then take on your friends. The first player to lose all of their fighters is the loser. Truth be told, Super Smash Bros and other fighting games have a mode like this, but the fact the roster is so insane really makes it something special in this game.
I really cannot say enough positive things about what Mugen (M.U.G.E.N) offers. I have played similar things to this before, but none can match this in terms of the insane amount of characters, backgrounds, and moves that are on offer here. It is crazy the characters that people have made available in this game. It is a massive amount of fun and while you do have to tinker around with it, I feel that it is more than worthwhile to do so.
