Zone4 is a massively multiplayer online action brawler game that features a classic gameplay of beat ‘em ups that were popular in the arcades. You can get to pick a character and select your preferred fighting style that are unique to each other and you can perform different set of combos from juggles to throws. It also has a variety of game modes that caters to both casual and competitive players such as PvP ranked battles up to arcade solo missions.
The game tells the story of the Zone4 as one of the premiere fighting capital where it held its Free Fighting Championships which was founded by the legendary martial artists Roddy Hart. Once attracted by the best fighters around the world, it has now been infested by corrupt fighters who are exploiting the tournament with drug abuses, gambling and cheating. As a result, Zone4 has become a ground zero for mysterious deaths to famous fighters. But a small band of fighters are trying to fight back against the corrupt and restore the once respected city once again.
Zone4 features a beat ‘em up type of gameplay, which is a popular multiplayer game in the arcades. You can get to roam in areas surrounded by enemy units, you will fight your way through to clear the enemy to complete the stage. You can fight them alone or with other players to easily defeat the enemies. In some cases there will be bosses at the end of the stage where you must defeat it in order to complete the area.
In the game, you start off by picking your preferred character, there are six characters to choose from which only provides different appearances as there are no significant differences in stats whoever you pick. The only thing that will have any significant impact on the gameplay is when you select your preferred fighting style, you pick either a Street style or a Rush style; Street style involves more on striking attacks where landing perfect combos can be extremely deadly while Rush are for grab attacks that are rather devastating if you managed to accurately catch your target. Each of the style has four sub categories of fighting styles, where each provides different move sets and you can switch to a different style once you reach level 10.
The controls are somewhat different, instead of the standard WASD for the movement, you will be using the directional keys on your keyboard, and the ASD are for performing actions in the game (A for counter and evade, S for grab moves and D for strike moves). The F acts as an item pick up action that lets you pick loot or weapons that are scattered in the area. Q, W, and E are for your special attacks, you can only perform these actions if your power meter is high and they are a good form of counter attack when got pinned on a combo or a good finisher to your combo. The number keys act as your shortcuts to items such as healing potions.
You can land different kind of combos, where you can use the directional keys to change the type of attack or combining it with grab attacks, you can also end your combo with a combo finisher or ultimate finisher to land more devastating damage to your opponents. Evading attacks will help you avoid damage from incoming attacks and if you time your evasion before an attack hits you, you can land a counterattack move that will damage your opponent and leave them for an opening.
You can get to try different game modes by roaming around the map in Zone4, you can get to interact with other NPCs to buy equipment or items, and even get your quests where you can earn rewards. There are two modes that you can take, the PvP for those who are into friendly or competitive matches against real players, or the Arcade mode where you fight enemy AIs in classic beat ‘em up style whether you fight alone or with other real players.
