Game Overview

Every gaming generation had its hallmark -- and "99Vidas" recaptures them all!

Final Fight, Double Dragon, Battletoads, Streets of Rage… What do all of these games have in common? They all represent the glory of the "beat 'em up" genre, a staple of gaming in the 80's and 90's. Developer QUByte Interactive took inspiration from all of the the unforgetable notes from that game style to proudly bring you "99Vidas".

"99Vidas" is a brawler set in a contemporary world, but 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 80's and 90's pop culture. "99Vidas" takes full advantage modern era gameplay mechanics, making it the best of both worlds.

6 stages (with more to come) will take you on a journey to different parts of the world to face hordes of fierce enemies and relentless bosses, but you don’t have to do it alone: you can face this challenge with up to 3 other players in co-op play, both local and online.

 
 

Story Details

The Main Game can be played either solo or with up to a total of 4 Players, both Local and Online. 

The story itself revolves around an Ancient Artifact called 99VIDAS (Portuguese for 99 LIVES) which grants Unmeasurable Power 

It consists of 6 Stages, with additional 2 in the form of Bonus Stages, each of which culminates in a unique Boss Battle.

The In-Game dialogs and even the Ending reacts to the amount of players in the game, as well as which characters are in said party, meaning that playing the game with different amount and combinations of characters may trigger unique dialog lines and change the Ending for each playthrough.

 
 

Gameplay Details

The game controls consist of the directionals and 4 Action buttons - Punch (Quick/Weak Attack), Kick (Slow/Strong Attack), Jump and Super (Magic, which spends MP) - which can be combined with the D-Pad to produce combos and Special Attacks.

The Player acquires Experience Points (XP), by defeating enemies and collecting items over the course of the game, which can then be used to purchase Combo and Skill Upgrades in the Upgrade Shops located in-between stages.

Defeating Enemies also net the user Magic Points (MP) which increase the MP meter that once filled grants the player up to 2 different kinds of Super Attacks that damage all enemies on screen. 

New gamplay mechanics are introduced over the course of the game, including unique mechanics for the Bosses, to keep the experience from feeling stale.
