There’s wrestling, there’s rasslin’, and there’s wrassling. The first is a sport that involves grappling at close quarters. The second is a sport that involves grappling at close quarters for short bursts in between trash-talking your opponent on the microphone. And wrassling – well, it has to be seen to be believed.
Wrassling from Tomato Can Games is certainly a cousin of wrestling, albeit a distant one. Fighters’ arms spin wildly in hopes of hooking an opponent and then subsequently chucking them over the top rope. The canvas raises and lowers, which adds an interesting element of challenge to the act of sending your foes for a flight.
Wrassling looks like an Atari 2600 game, though there isn’t an Atari 2600 on earth capable of rendering half a dozen frantic fighters pelting each other in the face at the same time. The wrestlers also have different body types. Presumably, the little guys move more quickly and are harder to grab, while the sumo-sized gentlemen won’t go over the top rope so easily.
Wrassling hits iOS and Android on April 23. Go, and make the great land of Slamdovia proud.
