The Lethal League wiki last edited by Mysterysheep on 11/24/14 01:53PM View full history

Overview

Lethal League is a multiplayer fighting game made and released on Steam by Reptile Games. In Lethal League, the players' only means of attacking their opponents is with a ricocheting baseball. The original prototype made by Reptile is still playable as a free browser game.

Lethal League is played in a 2D rectangular stage. The 2-4 players will try to hit the ball at their opponents, while avoiding being hit (i.e. knocked out) by the ball themselves. Once a player has hit the ball, they are safe from the ball until someone else hits it. As the ball speed gets exponentially faster, successfully hitting the ball, and avoiding being hit becomes less and less realistic. Each hit automatically increases the speed of the ball, while smash hits (holding Down while swinging) doubles the speed (indicated at the bottom of the screen). The game has both local and online multiplayer.

Lethal League was featured in the final round of the Mystery Game tournament at the Ultimate Fighting Game Tournament 9, which was held in Chicago, Illinois on May 26, 2013.
