Rag Doll Kung Fu: Fists of Plastic is a fighting/party game developed by Tarsier Studios and available on the Playstation Network. The game is fully 3D but takes place on a 2D plane, also called 2.5D. The objective is to defeat the various enemies on screen by kicking, punching, throwing, and using your chi powers. The game makes extensive use of the motion sensors in the playstation controller. Charged attacks are performed by jerking the controller in specific directions, and fireballs can be charged by shaking the controller. Although the game is primarily based around multiplayer games modes, there is a set of challenges that can be completed single player.
A basic character customization feature is also present. By playing through the single player challenges, clothing such as headwear, shirts, pants, gloves, and footwear can be unlocked. The player can use these unlocks to design and save up to three different fighter models. These customizable items are purely cosmetic, and do nothing to alter or enhance the performance of your character. This means that there is ultimately only one character-type to choose for fighting.
This game was made free for users of the U.S. Playstation Store, courtesy of Sprint. The offer expired on May 27, 2009.
