In most arcade fighting games, a slow reaction or a mis-timed special move lead to a thorough ass-kicking by your competitor. ‘War of the Currents’ takes a different approach, not only is your character getting a beat down, you’re going to suffer a bit as well.

Not only does the blow do significant damages to your character, it’ll also start making you question your life decisions, notably: “why am I playing a game that lives to punish me?”
