If you like Streets of Rage, there’s a good chance you’ll like this. It doesn’t bring anything revolutionary to the table but Qubyte has done a fine job of capturing the essence of the classic beat-em-ups of the ‘90s, and although there’s a little bit of repetitiveness in it, this is a title that’s worth playing.

99 Lives is a "me against the neighborhood" with which anyone can travel to the times when the genre lived a golden age and enjoy a title with a lot of content and a lot of fun to play, both alone and with others.

99Vidas' humour can be very hit and miss, and the game's challenging difficulty level may put some people off.  But persist and you'll find it a rewarding and hugely enjoyable brawling experience that will have you coming back for more.

Apart from the minor pains, 99Vidas is genuine and fun homage to the games that inspired it and is definitely worth your time and money

While the beat 'em up genre will be lost on most gamers, and the story experience isn't that long in 99Vidas to keep some engaged, there is still some fun to be had in this game. It kicks up some nostalgia of what once was cool in the arcades and at home during the 16-bit war, while trying to mix in some new material and motivation to keep the experience going. QUByte did a good job with their action title, so definitely give it a look.

Although being a bit repetitive, 99Vidas is a fun release that will play the nostalgia angle to charm gamers. Beat 'em ups, by nature, feature repetitive gameplay, but 99Vidas does a good job at keeping things fun while paying homage to some of the classics in the genre. If you're a fan of beat 'em ups, then you should check this one out from – especially if you have some friends to play laong with!

99Vidas is an affectionate homage to scrolling beat em ups of the 80s and 90s. It's also a fun game to spend an afternoon with, regardless of age and skill. There's not a lot of content and you can run through the story mode in a few hours, but local and online co-op, unlockable characters, and the promise of more levels should give it some lasting appeal.

Not hugely unique but definitely engaging, 99 Vidas is an excellent tribute to side-scrollers, brawlers and some of the past three decades' standout games.

99Vidas managed to surprise us: a product that fans of the beat 'em up genre should look into. Being a low budget indie we're satisfied as it is, even if it could have been even better.

Brawlers are meant to be played in one sitting, with friends, while the sound of button smashing drowns out the catchy music coming out of the TV. By that standard alone 99Vidas is successful.
