The best way to describe this game is a as cross between Streets of Rage and Guardian Heroes, but different. Three Dirty Dwarves manages to borrow from various sources while maintaining its own brand of dwarven hijinks.
I really like the cartoon-style graphics that 3DO uses; they're large and which animate nicely. Character design is interesting, with a grungy theme throughout.You control one character at a time, with the other two right behind you and ready for battle. You can switch manually between them, or, if the controlled character is hit, the next in line will automatically come forward. The dwarves have regular attacks as well as specialized weapons like a shotgun, a bowling ball, and a baseball and bat which you control like a game of Three Flies Up (toss the ball to yourself and whack).
The dwarves are looking good so far and we'll be looking forward to reviewing this one soon.
