Gameplay

Cartoon Fighters is a 3D fighting where players can go one on one, two on two, or even three on three with other characters from both Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network. There are several modes for example, Story Mode, Tag Team, Arcade, and Tournament. Story mode is the same, however, there will be different outcomes depending on which team you choose to play. Each crew see each other as enemies after a recent event, and battle each other to see who comes out on top. At the beginning there are 5 playable characters on each side. For Nickelodeon, they have: Spongebob, Lincoln Loud, Po, Timmy, Aang. While for Cartoon Network they have: Steven, Robin, Grizz, Johnny, and Samurai Jack.

The game has both simple and complex mechanics. Each characters can punch, kick, shoot their range attack, and have shield barriers, which they can only use them 6 times. It can protect them from normal attacks, but from magic, powerful attacks, and grab, it will be broken. However, some characters have their own unique abilities. For example, Steven Universe has unlimited shield barriers, and Spongebob can cause characters to lose stamina. Characters can also be thrown after pushing several buttons while grabbing. Each characters also have their own super ability as well.

Both had been competing with each other, to the point they decided to crossover in a game. A game where there’s different outcomes, if the player completes story mode for either side, they win. The developer of the game was Richard Scott, who is known to develop 3D games and had earned awards for developing games similar to this.
