Game Description

Good Old Fisticuffs

Have you ever had one of those days? You know the kind; you wake up on the wrong side of the bed and the only thing you want to do is break something. Unfortunately, circumstances just keep you from venting your spleen safely and legally. Luckily, Little Fighter 2 offers a way to engage in some good old-school brawling from the comfort of your own home.

Choose Your Way to Brawl

There’s no wrong way to win a fight and Little Fighter 2 proves it by giving you all sorts of ways to kick butt and take names!


  • Play as one of 10 characters, each with their own distinct portraits, sprites, weapons and move sets.
  • Let your fists do the talking or bring the pain using any environmental weapon you can get your hands on. Fight using boulders, crates, sickles, shuriken, arrows and more!
  • Don’t take guff from anybody! Shoot fireballs into your foes and make them feel the burn.
  • Determine who your allies and enemies are and how many you will face.
  • Fight in a dozen different arena settings.
  • Play on three levels of difficulty.
  • Customize your controls using the keyboard or your choice of gamepad.

Play a Variety of Game Modes

Fighting is all well and good, but Little Fighter 2 provides all sorts of different ways your battles can be carried out.

  • Versus mode: put together a whole team and fight an opposing group down to the last man.
  • Battle mode: fight in a free-for-all arena. It’s every man for himself in here!
  • Championship mode: climb a tournament ladder to see who is the strongest of all. Choose between one-on-one or two-on-two battles.

Bring Your Friends Along or Beat Them Up!

Little Fighter II Review

Review by Mick

If you loved Street Fighter, Mortal Kombat or any of the 2D fighting genre games then you need to have Little Fighter 2. Several different modes of battle that you can experience alone, with a friend or with the computer make this a very large game. This is definitely one of the best 2D fighting games available and it is completely free.

Various Modes Keep the Fighting Interesting

There are several ways to experience Little Fighters 2: Stage mode, VS mode, Championship, Battle mode and Demo mode. Stage mode is the campaign of Little fighters, it is only five stages with bosses here and there, so it's a little short. The VS mode lets you choose your opponent, where you want to fight and the difficulty level. Championship mode lets you fight a bracket style championship of 1 VS 1 or 2 VS 2 battles. Battle mode is a brawl style fight where two teams have armies of players that fight to the last team standing.


Demo mode is a way you can watch computer opponents fight without having to fight yourself. The campaign mode is a little short, but it is still really entertaining to play. You fight bad guys as you work your way through the stages and if you rescue prisoners they will fight alongside you until they are killed.

Customizeable Controls

The controls for Little Fighter 2 are completely customizable and you can have up to four players on the same keyboard (a max of two is more likely due to a lack of space). You will need direction keys to control movement, a jump key, an attack key and a block key. Basic actions are controlled by individual buttons, but special moves require you to use several keys at the same time.

Unique Special Abilities For Each Character

Each character (there are 24 total) has their own unique special abilities. Freeze can summon an ice sword that freezes enemies or Rudolf can throw multiple ninja stars at once. There is no tutorial that will teach you these moves so you will have to either figure them out yourself or look them up online. All modes of the game can be done in multiplayer mode, which can be on the same computer or over a network.

Old School Graphics Don't Detract From Gameplay

The graphics in Little Fighter 2 are similar to that of Nintendo era graphics. Though the graphics are dated, they don't detract from the gameplay at all. It gives the game a retro arcade feel and will bring back memories to anyone who has played similar games in the past. The soundtrack is fairly limited, but includes some good rock music that adds to the fighting atmosphere. The developers did a great job with the graphics and sound.


A Few Minor Issues

Only a few minor flaws are apparent in this game. The first thing is the short campaign mode. The appeal of this game could have been greatly increased by lengthening the campaign. There are plenty of other ways to experience the game, but a good story always adds to a game. The other noticeable problem is with the multiplayer. With the number of keys you need, it would be difficult for even two players to play on the same keyboard. The option of playing over the internet would have been a great addition to this game.

Conclusion - An Awesome Free Fighting Game

Little Fighter 2 offers some of the best 2D fighting action around. Basic controls are easy enough for anyone to figure out and special moves will give you a fighting advantage once you learn the combos. The few minor problems pale in comparison to the rest of this great game. If you like any kind of fighting game, or are even remotely interested, this is a great, free game to download.
