Blanka and Other Street Fighter Characters Added to Combo Crew: Video of the Day

Nov 1, 2013

So when Viewtiful Joe was added to Combo Crew not long ago, it seemed like it was just an odd, curious addition. Well, perhaps it should have been seen as a harbinger of things to come instead, as more Capcom characters have been added to the game as in-app purchases. One in particular of note? Blanka. He’s the best Street Fighter character, so when I saw he was added, I just had to show him off in this edition of Video of the Day.

The Game Bakers have made Blanka fit in well with the series: as I played with his basic attacks, I saw that they were all based on his moves from the series, both standard attacks and his specials. While it looks like electric shocks are not available initially, he can launch himself as a ball at opponents.

Buying Blanka or another character isn’t an instant-win mechanism: I struggled to last very long with him, as seen in this video. I blame that on rust, I wasn’t warmed up! I hadn’t played Combo Crew in a while! Any other number of a million excuses!

If you want to take this fearsome fighter out comboing, he’s available as an in-app purchase now in Combo Crew, available on Google Play. Until then, watch the video below showing off Blanka.

Viewtiful Joe is a cult classic series, with its pink-scarved protagonist stylishly dodging enemy attacks and delivering timely beatdowns while occasionally shouting out “Henshin-a-go-go, baby!”

While this action star has become somewhat lost to gamign history, The Game Bakers have brought him back in association with Capcom. In their beat ’em up Combo Crew, it’s now possible to buy Viewtiful Joe as an unlockable character, and use his signature attacks to beat up the many foes in the towers that inhabit Combo Crew.

Since he’s unlockable only through paying money, it seemed only prudent to show off this premium pugilist in video form to give a sample of just what he can do, so this gameplay video and commentary of Viewtiful Joe in Combo Crew does just that: it shows off the basics of what he can do, as well as the core of the game itself for those who are unfamiliar with it. You can watch the video below, and buy Combo Crew with Viewtiful Joe now on Google Play.

There is a new action gameplay trailer available for Combo Crew, a fighting game that provides similar arcade action to what was seen in the ’80s and ’90s. Combo Crew offers beat’em up gameplay without the d-pad, allowing you to use touch and swipe controls to do all the fighting. Along with solo mode, you can also play co-op multiplayer mode which features cross-platform gameplay between iOS and Android. Combo Crew will be available this May.

•No virtual D-pad. Pure fight! How come mobile beat ’em ups are never as much fun as the old days at the arcade? It’s because virtual D-pads suck. But Combo Crew’s responsive controls are fully designed for touch: one-finger swipe to punch and kick, tap to counter attack, and two-finger swipe for special combo moves. In Combo Crew, your fingers do the fighting — because real brawlers don’t

•Old school fighting for today’s mobile crowd. Inspired by classics like Streets of Rage, Final Fight, and Street Fighter, Combo Crew pulls traditional beat ’em ups into the 21st century with an arena structure ideal for quick play sessions, multiple game modes (including single-player, co-op, and “endless”), and plenty of power-ups and bonus moves to unlock.
