The Black Heart is an 1vs1 fighting game in the tradition of Street Fighter or Mortal Kombat, only more gothic and tragic.

It's about another world in a parallel dimension where the king and ruler has been murdered. A vicious creature called Final has ripped his heart where he stored all the power he used to create that world. 

Six creatures, both from our world and the other one, chase this monster to steal the heart for their own purposes, since it's told that the bearer of the heart will weild an enormous power.

The game was all made by 1 person (Andrés Borghi) through 7 years of hard work. This includes graphics, programming, story, music, sound and pretty much everything.

If you enjoy pixelated blood, fluid gameplay in Capcom style, combos, tragic and epic music, weird pictoric landscapes and complex storytelling this is the game for you!

Having recently been featured over on GameJolt, The Black Heart has seen a little renaissance as players who had never heard of it before have discovered what a great 2D fighting indie game it is. The Black Heart was originally released back in 2009 after developer Andrés Borgh had put seven years of work into it. And does it ever show!

Great game, except Hashi is impossible to beat on the third battle. He reflects a higher difficulty than "Normal." Besides that, amazing game.

The difficulty is poorly balanced, especially when there are difficulty options. The later Story levels get impossible, even when one knows all of the combos. Besides that, I love it. I wish I could make something like this.

What difficulty are you on when facing Hashi? Well, I'm on normal and he isn't that bad

He got easier as I got better. The problem is the later levels when the opponents get really hard. I might go back and finish it but I got mad XD

Amazing work

Qué gran juego!!! Lo único que reprocharía es que al principio el juego es muy difícil, aún en dificultad fácil. Pero yo ya le agarré la mano y no es tan difícil si te sabés los combos...

Me encantó todo, la historia, los personajes (que pienso que podrían añadir más, o ser desbloqueables), la jugabilidad, los combos, las "fatalities", incluso los gráficos! Gracias y saludos a Andrés Borghi

Damn, this game is so hard, even on an easy difficulty. I'm not very advanced player and I can't beat this game. Cool story and characters, but I don't know any of the endings, so...

This game sometimes scares the shit out of me! Is there anyway you, Andrés Borghi, can add a replay scene like in Tekken games? Showing the last strike before K.O.? I love that in Tekken, especially in Tekken 2 and 3.
