Nidhogg preview: fencing madness

Sporting Atari 2600-style pixel graphics, Nidhogg has two players trying to cross a room. Unfortunately, players can only advance after killing the other. In development for several years, developer Messhof is finally putting the finishing touches on his one-on-one arcade fencing title.

The most common way to off an opponent, of course, is to run them through with your sword and watch as they absurdly melt into a geyser of pixels. But that's just the beginning. Players can also chuck their swords like a projectile in hopes of landing a hit or go toe-to-toe with their fists until they land a takedown and break the opponent's pixelated neck.
