Vanquish the Mad Stroke gangs across 8 levels. Punch and kick your way to defeat enemies, use melee and throwing weapons to defeat the most powerful bosses, collect bonuses and enjoy special shots. Race your motorbike at full speed in the bonus stages, earn money to unlock additional characters and secret images from a rich gallery. Don't be discouraged if you are defeated, you can purchase upgrades to throw yourself into the fray with a little advantage. Complete the game with all the characters to know the endings and have fun with a friend to discover the combined ones. For the bravest, increase the difficulty level and if that's still not enough, wipe out all the enemies in a row in the fearsome Ring mode and prove you're the best of them all...


Punch, kick and body slam your way through the levels

Last Beat: Enhanced is a pixel art, side-scrolling beat 'em up with plenty of retro value.

Punch, kick and body slam your way through the levels as you try to keep the streets clean.

Don't forget to destroy any dustbins in the level as they hide special items including money and weapons.


Race your motorbike at full speed in the bonus stages

It's pretty much a by-the-numbers side-scrolling street fighter game with a ton of charm. There are elements of sci-fi in this game. One of the playable characters is a giant shell less turtle like creature.

It might not keep you entertained for very long, or in long doses, but played in short bursts you'll be returning time and time again to try and beat your own score. It's also way more fun in 2-player co-op mode.

A lovingly crafted slice of retro fun that won't break the bank.
