Think of it as an addendum to the Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice two-parter I just did on Same Name, Different Game. In this one, Roger takes a look at WayForward’s Flash-based beat-‘em-up!
WayForward is a developer that is known for their generally excellent retro-styled games. Things like A Boy and His Blob, Contra 4 and Shantae: Risky’s Revenge show them to be one of the last great major studios doing true 2D work. But it wasn’t always that way. Way back in the early ’00s, they were mostly doing licensed Game Boy Color games for properties like Wendy the Witch and Sabrina the Teenage Witch. Lots of witches. But also, wrestling. They did the GBC version of WCW Mayhem, which is the best version of that particular game, as the console versions are godawful. And they also did this game.
