Charlie Murder

Destructoid
2 September 2013
  • Summary: Charlie Murder is a game that aims incredibly high. In addition to presenting an truly unique and fluid art style, it adds a compelling soundtrack to the mix, as well as a whole host of gameplay mechanics, on top of an RPG-like stat and inventory system. Not everything works out exactly how Ska Studios hoped it would, but beneath all of the questionable design decisions lies an incredibly interesting beat 'em up that makes quite an effort to break the mold.

  • Excerpt: Charlie Murder is the newest release from developer Ska Studios--the same company that brought the world The Dishwasher video game series. Charlie Murder takes noticeable inspirations from its predecessors but features an all new storyline based around a punk rock band and their battles against undead hordes of enemies and a rival band. The game features a unique art design and combo filled combat that works together well with a campaign full of heavy metal inspirations.

Charlie Murder

IGN
20 August 2013
  • Conclusion: Charlie Murder is a competently made and often funny brawler that has fun with a wide range of inspirations. But when you're not battling evil IT engineers or grotesquely illustrated zombies it can descend into a repetitive slog of mashing the X button, particularly when played solo. Dull minigames don’t do the Charile crew any favors, but the RPG elements give us something to fight for.
  • Pros: Quirky humor, Good co-op, Loot drops
  • Cons: Sloppy mini-games, Repetitive combat

Charlie Murder Xbox 360 Review: This summer's loudest and proudest XBLA game

Windows Phone Central
19 August 2013
  • Excerpt: Back in the happier times when Microsoft actively supported Xbox games on Windows Phone, I had the pleasure of interviewing Ska Studios , the two person team behind Zombies on the Phone . While Ska worked on Zombies (which came out at the beginning of 2012 ), they also plugged away at an Xbox Live Arcade game called Charlie Murder . It would be their most expansive game to date.

Charlie Murder Review

GameSpot
19 August 2013
  • Excerpt: In line with the anarchistic vibe and punk rock aesthetic it emulates so well, Charlie Murder gets right in your face and starts up a flailing mosh pit of chaotic game mechanics even before the dissonant ring of the opening power chords fade from memory. No, ripping the limbs off your zombified foes and blissfully beating them to un-death with their own bloody appendages isn't enough for this ambitious and gory 2D brawler.
  • Pros: Great art style and gritty punk aesthetic, Chaotic combat hits a high note with its absurdity, Great co-op experience
  • Cons: Checkpoint system is unforgiving, A few minigame elements feel tacked on
