Launching later this week on Nintendo Switch is Spartan Fist, a game described as a "first-person puncher".
The game has you fighting your way to fame, fortune, and glory, all in a bid to retrieve the titular 'Spartan Fist'. You'll need to navigate your way through an arena that changes each time you play, and this new Switch version allows you to use your Joy-Con's motion controls to punch your enemies ARMS-style.
Here's a feature list:
- Radical first-person punching aimed at ultimate satisfaction
- New arenas to explore every time you play, chock full of new stuff to wreck
- A double fistful of fun to button-mash combo slammin' action with a high skill ceiling
- Earn permanent upgrades to give you a leg-up on your next run through the Gauntlet
- Colorful and vibrant pixelated characters in tandem with gory violence
- A ton of different playstyle-changing fist types (to hit dudes with)
- Mysterious things to dip fists in (maybe it'll give you power! OR NOT)
- The punk/chip fusion sounds of "Chipunk" in an all-original soundtrack
The game has been developed by Glass Bottom Games, the team behind the Indie World star SkateBird, and originally appeared on Steam in 2018. It'll be available on Switch this Friday for £11.29.

'Fist Person Shooter' surely?
Cool idea but execution ehmm... no my alley I guess.
Bit like Call Of Duty but with awful graphics and only a melee attack
The basic concept seems like a no-brainer, but while I don't mind the retro styling, all the backgrounds seem a bit too grey and monotonous.
It does make me think though that a free-roaming first-person 3D beatemup using motion controls would be hella fun.
It looks like a Mobile port. No depth and limited replay ability.
Ninety-two minutes of applause to you, sir.
I'll bet they called it DoomFist while it was in development b/c it looks like a runthough of the original Doom w/ no weapons remade in Minecraft, b/c everything has to be remade in Minecraft.
I dont see much replayability in this. Colors are boring, and while I understand the blocky NPC's, its just...boring looking. Perhaps if this was a $5 game.
Someone mentioned a demo, but if there was one we would all just play it once and be done with it all.
Game needs more work.
Oh, great. A first person beat 'em up with Minecraft graphics. How in the hell does this compare to ARMS, which not only looks a thousand times better, but plays differently as well? Just because it's a boxing-type game? That's a bit of a stretch, there.
And yes, that was an ARMS joke...
This sounds awesome, I loved punching people in ARMS
Agree with a lot of the comments here. It has potential but the gameplay looks bland, a bit chaotic in that I really can't tell what's going on, and the cartoony look with the "blood" just feels really off. The concept may have potential but this is way off from realizing it.
I can overlook a lot of what's been said however the fact that there is no online battle arena is kinda sad. I would love to fight in this game against other people like PVP, almost feels like a title destined for VR as well.
