Pocket Rumble is a fun looking 2D fighting game currently on Kickstarter that promises a Linux port if they hit a stretch goal, I know what you're thinking, but look past that for a minute.
I know you dislike stretch goals, but for some developers it just isn't feasible to fork out for our tiny platform without backup. The stretch goal is for both Mac & Linux anyway, so it's not just a "Linux" goal by itself, and to top it off the Linux goal includes another character. So, it would be a crime to not hit the goal.
About Pocket Rumble
Pocket Rumble takes inspiration from the legacy of 2D fighters that precede it, especially the SNK fighters for the Neo Geo Pocket. The goal is to reduce the level of execution and memorization to the minimum necessary to retain all the core 2D fighter mechanics and game-play elements.
One thing we do have a severe lack of is 2D fighters, so I'm all for this coming to Linux! I used to love playing a good fighting game when I was younger, and we could really do with a new one
The game does sound very interesting for the AI's ability to learn your play style, and to use that against you. I love that idea, and really hope I can see that in action myself. There's nothing worse than a boring AI in a fighting game.
If battling against smart AI isn't your thing, then how about playing online easily? Pocket Rumble has that covered too, and it uses a ranking system.
There's a lot more to it, so I suggest taking a look at the link below.
