Stripping back fighting games to the ground-based combat experience and back to the basics, FOOTSIES Rollback Edition is out now on Linux. Created by HiFight, a popular Twitter user and blogger that covers the world of fighting games.
"FOOTSIES is a 2D fighting game where players can control character movement horizontally and use one attack button to perform normal and special moves to defeat their opponent. While the controls (and graphics) are super simple, FOOTSIES retains the fundamental feeling of fighting game genre where spacing, hit confirm and whiff punish are keys to achieve victory."
