Toribash for Mac features a turn-based gameplay that is highly engaging but hard to master. If you like action-packed games but are tired of the average combat simulators, this one can offer you slower but more sophisticated fights. The game mechanics are nice and so are the graphics, so there's no reason why you shouldn't try this game.
Toribash moves beyond the traditional real-time fighting simulator by incorporating a slower, turn-by-turn gameplay. You play as a 3D figure with rather few facial or body details. What's interesting about it is that each joint of the body has a corresponding bubble-like button, which allows you to hold, extend, or retract joints during a turn. For example, by bending an elbow and moving a shoulder, you can throw a punch. As you might expect, this sophisticated fighting has a steep learning curve, and although the game includes a nice tutorial, it will still take you some time before you get used to it. This game gets a thumbs up for its fun multiplayer and a thumbs down for not allowing you to customize your character.
If you have the patience to learn Toribash, you will be rewarded with unique gameplay that gives you remarkable control over your movements, allowing you to create sophisticated moves. The graphics and the multiplayer won't disappoint you, either. In the end, this game stands out from other fighting simulators.
