It’s Gangster Time With Can Fighters

Every year, thousands of fights break out between young teenagers that are bored and have nothing else to do. Gone are the days when youngsters could entertain themselves with two tin cans and a shoestring. These days, they prefer kicking the cans around and starting a small war of their own. Can Fighters is a game that takes us into the life of two young boys and their tin can.

In Can Fighters, we are introduced to two angry looking young boys. Between them is a tin can, which they must kick and hit their opponent on the face. While this may sound easy enough, the game is actually fairly hard to master.


As a two-player action game, Can Fighters bring to life the urgency of similar childhood games such as Stone-Paper-Scissors. The players stand against each other and between them is placed a tin can. When the round begins, the tin can alternates with a one-ton weight. Once the switching stops, players must kick the can and reduce the health bar of the opponent. However, kicking the one-ton weight means getting a stubby toe and losing some of your own health.

Whether in single-player or two-player mode, the game is immensely enjoyable. It takes four direct hits with the can to win one round. However, getting the hit is not always easy. Players must be careful to not kick too soon; else they will get the weight instead of the can. Too slow means that the opponent gets to win the round. A fine balance must be achieved in order to win either all five rounds or best of out five.

Can Fighters has been designed fairly well. Both the characters look like typical teenagers with a point to prove. They are not wearing pants for some reason, but it is a point that escapes notice after playing a couple of rounds. The game has components taken from earlier arcade games, notably fighting games. This shows in the level of emphasis given to the final kick or the K.O. Other than that, the sound effects are fairly decent.


Can Fighters comes with a simple control scheme and makes it accessible for players of all ages.

  • Player one can use the A key to kick the can.
  • Player two can use the Left arrow key for the same.
  • The M key can be used to mute the game.
  • The P key can be used to pause the game.
  • The Esc key can be used to exit the game.


As an action game, Can Fighters gets three stars out of five. The game is about average and does not offer anything new as such.

  • Star number one is for the graphics, design and sound effects.
  • Star number two is for the gameplay and game design.
  • Star number three is for the difficulty setting and learning curve offered.

A little addition to the game would have made it worthy of four stars. This includes creating better graphics and adding a few more obstacles in the way.
