Niche Spotlight – One Finger Death Punch 2

This is Niche Spotlight. In this column, we regularly introduce new games to our fans, so please leave feedback and let us know if there’s a game you want us to cover!

Today’s Spotlight is One Finger Death Punch 2, the follow-up to Silver Dollar Games’ surprise hit from 2014.

For the uninitiated, One Finger Death Punch is a series of fast, brutal, and kinetic brawlers designed to be played with just two buttons. Waves of enemies come at you from both sides of the screen, and you must make carefully-timed, rhythmic strikes to take them out. The game mixes combat up with special skills, super attacks, and a variety of weapons. You can check out the launch trailer above.

One Finger Death Punch 2 is available on Windows PC via Steam for $7.99. The game has a free demo available.

Here’s a rundown of the game:


Simplicity to perfection.
To be played in bursts.
By design, there is no story.
Only crazy kung-fu.

You’re surrounded, outnumbered and have to use any weapon you can get your hands on to dismantle your opponents in a flurry of kung fu. That’s the essence of OFDP2, the world’s fastest brawler. It features the original OFDP’s unique two-button mechanics which we’ve spent the last five years perfecting. Speed and precision are key in this whirlwind fighting frenzy, as players maintain control over the 26 different unlockable skills, frenetic gameplay, and classic kung fu-inspired animations.

We want to show that a fighting game can be complex without cumbersome button combinations. Once players complete the tutorial levels and learn the basics, they’ll see that this is the most intense two-button game ever made.

With 1000 different animations available, literally, anything is possible—particularly when players unlock each of the 26 available skills. Having these skills available simultaneously is a major design challenge that encompasses the core of what OFDP2 is trying to achieve. Seeing the game with all 26 skills is a spectacle unique to OFDP2.

We built this game as a palette cleanser between other games in your library. It was designed to deliver a quick hit of adrenalin as fast as possible.

You can’t get a feel for the gameplay from watching videos. The flow of combat is something we spent years tweaking. It’s what makes OFDP2 unique. Only by playing it will this become clear. That’s why it’s important to us that you TRY THE DEMO out before you consider purchasing this game.

  • EASY TO LEARN
  • THE WORLD’S FASTEST BRAWLER
  • OUR ONLY GOAL WAS TO CREATE FUN
  • 400+ LEVELS – 26 SKILLS – 4 ENDLESS SURVIVAL TOWERS
