Play OverviewPlay Overview

Way Of The Passive Fist (2019) is a fighting game where you parry, dodge, dash and counter-attack to outwit and outlast your enemies rather than kill them.

On a desolate planet ruled by raiders, mutants and fanatical sun worshipers, a mysterious figure travels across the distant planet of Zircon V. By using the Passive Fist technique, you can outlast any foe by deflecting their attacks and draining their stamina.

It's a game that turns the usual power fantasy of brawling action on its head. You have to study each enemy's patterns and nullify their attacks with perfectly timed parries and dodges. You are basically letting them defeat themselves.

As you do this you are filling your super meter with consecutive parries and dodges and spending it to destroy all who stand in your way. Adjust gameplay settings to customise your own challenge level with its own unique name.
