Description official descriptions

Clay Fighter is a 2D fighting game released in which the characters, as the name suggests, are made completely out of clay. This allows for interesting moves and stylized graphics. The zany roster includes: Bad Mr. Frosty, a snowman; Taffy, a piece of stretchable candy; Blob, a character who can morph into different shapes; Blue Suede Goo, an Elvis knock-off; Ickybod Clay, a pumpkin-headed ghost; Helga, an opera singer; and Bonker, the crazed clown. Each character also has their own level and individual taunts.

Gimmicky, but fun!

The Good
The clay-mation graphics are spectacular, and the characters are funny and imaginative, with Blue Suede Goo, an Elvis impersonator, Helga, a fat opera singer, Taffy, a piece of candy, Tiny, a wrestler, The Blob, a transforming hunk of clay, Ickybod Clay, a pumpkin-headed ghost, Bonker, an insane clown and finally, Bad Mr. Frosty, the main character of the game. The stages are detailed and reflect each fighters personality.

The Bad
The animation is awful, with limbs appearing out of nowhere to whack you. Fighters like The Blob transform to attack and it can be confusing to keep up with until you're used to it.

The Bottom Line
This fun fighter can seem gimmicky at first, but it uses the same fighting controls as Street Fighter 2 so despite the weird attacks it plays pretty much the same, and there is still room for technique.
