Spectacular Shatter Buddies is a platform fighting game heavily influenced by the popular Super Smash Bros. Melee.

NOTE: I shut down the lobby server, because I don't want to pay $5 for it every month. I have some ideas to make it a bit cheaper, so I might turn it on again in the future. Until then, only local multiplayer is possible, sorry.

This game attempts to explore the genre of platform fighters, specifically by providing a more accessible experience. This starts with being significantly less technically demanding to facilitate easier access to the heart of platform fighters and also by including seamless online play on the PC and compatibility with various input devices.

Some of your questions might be answered in the FAQ or by the public Trello ToDo list, so make sure to look there first.

Please add Local mode!

What do you mean? You can already do local multiplayer. You can only have one player on the keyboard, but you can have any number of extra players by connecting gamepads.

2 player local on keyboard. And also...pretty much a non-online mode.

Make it work with a Playstation 4 controller.

what's the magic word?
