Inspiration vs. Imitation: Icons: Combat Arena, Rivals, and Smash

Icons: Combat Arena is a platform fighter that recently released on Steam. Should you play it? Well, that answer is… complicated. In this video, I talk a little bit about the development history of Icons (and Project M), its pros and cons, and compare it to another Smash alternative — Rivals of Aether. I contrast the two games in their overall design and approach, and discuss where I think Icons stands to be improved. I think you should definitely check out both Icons and Rivals of Aether, and see for yourself what you think. Icons is going through some growing pains, but I have no doubt that it will only get better as time goes on! Rivals has really come into its own lately, and is an all-around solid game. Try them both! Shout out to the talented folks at Wavedash Games for making
