Treachery in Beatdown City is a dark comedy action street fighting thriller that gives players the freedom to fight how they want against an increasingly ridiculous cast of enemies. The US President Blake Orama has been kidnapped by Ninja Dragon Terrorists! Take to the streets with 3 unique fighters - Lisa, the Boxing/MMA expert, Brad, a pro-wrestler with a love of fire, and Jeet Kune Do/Capoeira fighter Bruce. Use an all new tactical-brawling system to fight through hoards of disorderly thugs, shouting drunks, disorderly cyclists, entitled joggers, rapping grapplers, affluent punks, ninjas, terrorists, ninja terrorists, cyborgs (?) and MORE! Will they save the president? You have to play to find out! FEATURES: Choose from dozens of attacks to create long chains of strike combos, grapple combos, and strikeagrapple-ombos! Switch between 3 fighters in between fights - Lisa, an MMA fighter and Boxer, Bruce, a Jeet Kune Do/Capoeira specialist, and a Brad, a former professional wrestler. Use a mix of real time and tactical COMBO MENU based attacks to tackle your foes! Fight over 40 class based enemies, each with a health based behavior system built to change up attacks and keep players on their toes! Timeless score by Inverse Phase, creator of such albums as Pretty Eight Machine and the Chipping of Isaac

Innovative mechanics make a strong first impression, but the action, music, and bombastic tone of the narrative all wear thin after a few hours

Treachery in Beatdown City is a funny and novel clash of genres in the form of an '80s beat-'em-up.

Overall, I enjoyed my time with Treachery in Beatdown City, and despite a lack of overall polish, it does a good job of emulating beloved 8-bit fighters while maintaining its own ground as a modern brawler.
