Recently Linux has been receiving some really impressive titles and Megabyte Punch seems to be no exception. At first blush the game may look to most like a Super Smash Bros. clone and while it certainly shares some of that game’s spirit it clearly has it’s own ambition. The gameplay blends the action-platforming of games like Mega Man with the fighting game style of SSMB and even offers a high degree of customization through swappable parts which you can use to build your character with.
Beyond the quote not much more has been said about the game’s Linux release. As it is a Steam Greenlight game it will hopefully be available for Linux users via Steam. According to the game’s website it will also be available via Desura.
If you’d like to try the game yourself I highly recommend visiting their website where you can get immediate access to the beta for about $8.
