Take your opponent down

With a well-timed attack you can put your opponent on the ground. Keeping them off balance is often the key to victory.

Switch game modes

On the map you can see the boss you'll eventually have to beat in the middle (Lynx). But you'll have to work toward getting strong enough by playing the Tournament, Survival, and Duel game modes.

Stay alive as long as you can

The survival game mode has you fighting opponents one after the other, but you never regain any health. See how long you can last.

Freemium dialog

Unfortunately, the freemium model gets in the way of fun, but at least you can watch an ad for one more fight (Get Free).
