Here is an overview of the game:

99Vidas is a brawler set in a contemporary world, that pays tribute to both the classic and the new in the gaming industry. Brought to you in 16-bit pixelated glory, chock-full of references to not only gaming but also 80s and 90s pop culture. 99Vidas takes full advantage of modern era gameplay mechanics, making it the best of both worlds.

The game features 11 playable characters and multiple cooperative and competitive game modes, for up to four players, which can be played either locally or online.

Each of these characters has unique attributes, like speed and strength, as well as an elemental alignment (Fire, Water, Wind, Lightning, et al), which modify their regular attacks, combos, and special moves. Different from more traditional games of the genre, characters gain experience points by defeating enemies and collecting special items which can then be used by the player to upgrade their abilities and combos, or even unlock new ones.

  • All-new Arcade Mode – Double the size of the regular campaign with no dialogue to interrupt the flow—no talk, all action!
  • All-new Remix Mode – Every new play is a different experience! This new mode mix things up by shuffling stages and enemies every time you start a new game.
  • New enemies.
  • New stages.

  • 11 playable characters.

Quick ingo: the game is inspired by a famous brazilian game podcast called 99vidas (99 lifes) which at that time was focused mostly on talking about old games. I I used to listen to them a lot a few years back. The podcasters hired a company to create a game that payed homage to old school brawlers and the game was created with direct input from them. Actually the 4 characters you see in the pictures above are representations of the 4 podcasters. Its pretty unique in this regard and it is worth a look if you can get your hands on it.
