Game Information

The core mechanics of the game focus around knocking out, pinning, or forcing your opponent to submit by using various wrestling moves.

  • Attacks are a basic move with the lowest damage and highest rate of success.
  • Throws are stronger, but due to the nature of needing to be able to grab your opponent there is less accuracy.
  • Holds are stronger than normal attacks and have the chance to force the target to tap out and end the match.
  • Aerial attacks are the strongest, but due to the risky maneuvers of sailing through the air you risk missing and hurting yourself in the process.

When two wrestlers use the same type of move, they clash and take a bit of damage but neither of their moves are performed.

Tip: Your opponents color corresponds to their preferred move type.

Known Bugs

  • You'll sometimes draw duplicate move cards, I focused on the rest of the game over deduping the draws
  • Apparently if you spam the down key, it will select a move. No clue why.
