Arms2d is Finished

Before you get any further, I'd appreciate it if you could take a look at this post detailing the motivation for Arms2d: Arms2d Motivation

Without any further ado, here are some download links for Arms2d:
[Windows Installer]  -  [Windows ZIP]  -  [HTML Web Build]


So, what is Arms2d?
Arms2d is a 2d fan demake of Nintendo's upcoming game, Arms (my fan game is not endorsed in any way by Nintendo) While Nintendo's game is a complex over-the-shoulder fighting game, my simple fan project is a free-for-all Super Smash Bros. style beat-em-up.

What does Arms have that Arms2d doesn't have?
  • Arms2d has one set of gloves - Arms has a bunch of different gloves that takes the strategy of the game to a whole new level
  • Arms2d only has one stage - Arms has many unique stages
  • Arms2d only has one game mode - Arms has quite a few really interesting game modes
  • Arms2d doesn't have online multiplayer - Arms has online multiplayer with some really awesome features
  • Arms2d has some simple pixel art characters - Arms has intricately designed and highly detailed 3d models
  • Arms2d is a simple game made by a fan - Arms is an incredible looking game made by one of the greatest video game companies of all time

So, if Arms2d is so terrible, why should I play it?
  • Arms2d is publicly available right now, Arms isn't.
  • You can play with up to 4 people locally on your own PC using a keyboard and mouse or gamepad.
  • Or you can play against some AI controlled characters
  • Arms2d doesn't cost any money
  • I personally think that Arms2d is actually kind of fun despite the fact that the real Arms is way better
  • If nothing else, I hope this game is a fun little distraction that keeps you occupied until the real Arms is released.

Once again, here are the download links: 
[Windows Installer]  -  [Windows ZIP]  -  [HTML Web Build]
(if your antivirus thinks the game is suspicious, the ZIP build may be your best bet)

Thank you for reading, I hope you have fun.
God bless.

    1. Use W,A,S,D to move your character and use the mouse to aim and punch.(left click for left arm, right click for right arm). When you're in the character select menu E is select and Q is go back.
