Oddball RPG Knuckle Sandwich has a fitting battle system


Hehe, noodle arms

We’ve seen a bit of the walkin’, talkin’ side of Knuckle Sandwich, but not much of the combat.

Today’s video previews the big-nosed role-playing game’s battle system, which, at its most basic, will have you timing button presses to a sliding meter. Hit your mark perfectly, and you’ll land a critical.

For more advanced moves, there will be eclectic mini-games. You might need to navigate noodly arms through a maze of blocks or bat at a whack-a-mole ghost in a round of pinball.

Good stuff. I watched the trailer twice for those grooving jams. They’re on SoundCloud, also.
