Lethal League Gameplay Review

I'm playing Lethal League, a projectile-based fighting game by Team Reptile.

The objective is to make the ball hit the opponent; the last player to hit the ball cannot be hit by it. The game supports one to four players locally or online; capable AI bots can take the place of human opposition. Each character, with varied special attacks, can swing at the ball, bunt to slow it down, or jump. Each time the ball is hit, it moves faster; swinging downward while jumping will rapidly increase the ball speed. The fast pace of the game, especially with four players involved, leads to intense matches of timing, skill, and luck. Lethal League offers a nice alternative to the typical fighting game.
