Get Amped Review, Seeks US Publisher
10:48 AM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story

MacGamer has posted a review of a little-known Japanese, Internet-ready fighting game called GetAmped. In addition to the review, MacGamer's Pat Miller provides a how-to on getting started with the game.

Here's a snippet from the article:

As with other games of the genre, GetAmped's gameplay is deceptively simple. Your character can walk and run about, jump, and attack with every means available to them. Your goal is to smack everyone else silly, or some minor variant thereof. The single player mode appears to have a basic plot - something along the lines of "your significant other has been captured by an a bad guy! go fight through legions of minions to rescue her!" - but it's really just a mode to practice your beatdown skills if you're a newbie or your internet connection is down. Multiplayer (available over LAN or Internet) is where GetAmped shines.
In related news, the authors of GetAmped have expressed their interest in find a U.S. publisher. In a forum post on the getamped web site, the authors also clarified some other issues with the game:
We are happy that you foreigner play GetAmped. But you're having a big mistake about GetAmped (also some news sites).

GetAmped is NOT FREE but Just in the free playing period now. And we're getting ready for publish this game in Japan soon (May or June). We'd like to translate GetAmped to English and publish this game in USA or some other countries. We are wondering if you could give us some helps or informations about publishing there.

For more on GetAmped, be sure to check out the MacGamer review and the GetAmped web site.
