MerFight: Curse Of The Arctic Prince

The Story

The three ancients ruled all of life in the earliest days. The Aquatic, The Terrestrial and The Empyrean, were all transfigurations of three separate elements that kept the world in balance. An ancient shark warrior created the Celestial Tide, which was an atmospheric pool filled with water that caused all life to die. The Aquatic became the only life force, and The Terrestrial as well as Empyrean disappeared. The Aquatic, which was made up of all 9 elements, punished all living things in the ocean by forcing them to the land.

What is MerFight?

MerFight is a 2.5D fighting video that features 12 fishy fighters. It’s influenced by various sea life, such as sharks and angler fishes.

This indie game emphasizes flexibility and leniency and is an engaging fighter that’s both easy to understand and fast-paced for both veterans and newcomers to the genre.

Many fighting games require inputs like quarter-circles in order to perform super and special attacks. MerFight however allows for simpler inputs like forward + attack. Players will get a slight boost in their meters if they perform the traditional input correctly. This is to help players who struggle with traditional inputs to still be successful in MerFight, and to make it easier for them to get started faster!
