Summary

It’s so hard to believe that when playing this game that it’s only in Early Access, it’s really well polished and full of content that it feels like a new release. Fights In Tight Spaces is a game that will take over your life, you play cards to do attacks and do crazy Bruce Lee type shit as you fuck anyone up. To keep it fresh you have pre-built decks and the game is a series of random events and encounters with you having control only over the direction, not the contents. Think Into The Breach but four times the size! This game is one where you get stuck in the just one more go loop or you have a daily run, it’s really quite the cool game what with the visuals how they are, and the gameplay as tight (pun completely intended) as it is. Don’t sleep on this game it’s going to be a hit!

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
