Boomerang Fu is a fighting game where you control small food-like characters. Using your boomerang the aim is to slice the other players with ranged or melee attacks. You can use a large range of power-ups such as: explosive boomerangs, disguise and telekinesis. You can then put power-ups together to form personalised combinations. The game has simple controls and up to 6 players as well as computer opponents, meaning its great for families wanting to play together.

NotesAccessibility Notes

You can adjust the difficulty by altering the teams and controlling how many (and how hard) computer opponents there are. You can also alter individual settings (power-ups, shields, friendly fire) to suit your tastes! You can turn off holding a button to retrieve your boomerang (so no one can retrieve it in this way). The throw button is also mapped to both left and right triggers.
