Here’s some footage of me playing a game from a while back. It’s called Fairy Bloom Freesia, and it’s available on Steam. In this beat-em-up, you play a fairy with martial arts skills who has to guard a magic tree from monsters and mages who seek to steal its power.
Unlike the beat-em-ups of the 90s which follow the Double Dragon model of side-scrolling, this one takes advantage of the advances in computer technology since then to deliver an experience more like Super Smash Bros.; remember that the gameplay of older games was largely dictated by technological limitations. Today, it is purely a matter of the desired style and the developers’ skills.
Now, enjoy the video. There’s no commentary, though, just me playing for a couple of minutes.
