THE OTTOMAN SLAPPER
LONDON, UK – April 18, 2018: THE OTTOMAN SLAPPER KISS Publishing Ltd. and Stun Games are thrilled to reveal that ‘Efe: The Ottoman Slapper’ has joined the fray as the 6th playable character in their furious 2D arcade fighter ‘Slashers: The Power Battle.’ Inspired by classic game series like Street Fighter 3, Last Blade and Guilty Gear. Slashers: The Power Battle offers epic, tactical combat that explodes across bold cartoon environments with fantastical larger than life fighters to command and defeat.

Having launched onto Steam Early Access last year, Slashers has seen an array of updates bringing the old school fighting game closer to full commercial release. Efe is a dagger-wielding, energy-ball throwing Ottoman fighter with damaging focused attacks. Thanks to his rigorous training (slapping marble blocks), his slap attacks send opponents flying across the arena. The newest warrior added to Slashers excels at switching low and high moves rapidly which keeps opponents unbalanced and gives him the opportunity to deal devastating combos. Stay tuned for the next new challenger: ‘Ikuzo!’
Since launching onto Early Access Slashers: The Power Battle has received a host of improvements, including the new “Tournament” mode, where players can participate and win rewards, but be warned, if you don’t show up during your bracket match, then your opponent may win automatically! The game has also been updated with several balance changes and graphical improvements and the gamepad support has been improved.
“It’s been a fantastic Early Access journey so far, we’re working closely with our amazing community to make Slashers the ultimate old-school fighting game,” said Galip Kartoglu, Founder of Stun Games. “We have so many more epic ideas to introduce into Slashers, and our powerful Ottoman slapper is a brilliant addition to the game’s diverse roster!”
Slashers is now available to purchase via Steam Early Access for $6.99/£5.19/€6.99
