Yeah very excited about this. It's so easy to pick up and play.

Yeah perfect for a few quick blasts - no idea what I am doing really but I managed to win a couple of games.  Then lost again and it takes all your gained EXP of you!

According to the leaderboard option, I was briefly the worst player in the world. I played 3 opponents, and took just 1 match. It's great stuff, but would be nicer if there was a way of learning against equally unskilled players. Seemed like everyone knew how to build special meter much more quickly then I did, I've definitely missed something.

 

I'll still buy it!

Yeah, after hours of play on the original over the years, I still have the nagging feeling that one cannot really master Windjammers.

 

Dot Emu has gone some way to remedy that though, by adding a new set of moves (esp. counter moves) which gives players more offensive and defensive options, and making the characters more different from each other.

Just played a bit of the original after trying this one, and boy does it feel clunky and prehistoric compared to Dot Emu's sterling sequel. I can't wait for the full release, but afaict, we still haven't been given a proper release date - apart from a vague late 2021.

New challengers, new stages, brand-new mechanics and awesome new power moves will make your head spin and enhance your windjammin’ experience. Master the slapshot, dropshot, the jump, the smash and the powerful EX MOVE, and enjoy the kickass soundtrack coming straight out of the ’90s.

Not really getting this, as a newcomer. When the ball lands on the sand, is there a way to pick it up or do anything? It always just waits a moment then gives 2pts.


ball?

 

BALL!?!

How to Play:

 

 

Best characters for starting out are S. Miller, S. De Lys or L. Biaggi.

Best pro characters are G. Scott, K. Wessel or M. Hurricane.

 

S. Ho and J. Costa are also pretty good, but you'll want to stay clear of H. Mita and J. Raposa, unless you like a challenge.

 

:hat:

Wanting to get this as it looks fun. But reading through some of the comments I think some of us on here have to accept we don't have the reflexes we had 20 odd years ago.

 

Will most probably wait for a sale as I really like Streets of Rage 4 ,not completed it yet but it's a good stress reliever for this old fella.
