Waffle Warfare is a 3D Umbrella/Baby Waffle fighting game developed by Inora, and released in 2015 for every game console. Even GameCube. Especially GameCube. Inspired by the Baby Waffles of old(ala Diamonds of Ether) and more recent concepts(such as Radioactive), as well as some unique features, it is Inora's first and hopefully not last attempt at it, as well as their first Lapis Wiki game.
Reception has been (TBA).
The game is a 3D fighting game with an arcade style similar to Super Smash Bros, but much different from that as well. Players explore a stage and must attack their enemies to deplete their health. Along the way, they'll have to avoid stage hazards and can collect items to use against their foes. Each character has basic light, medium, and heavy attacks in addition to 4 special moves and a Waffle Weapon move(the Final Smashes of the game). Waffle Weapon moves are earned by doing combos that fill up a bar. A unique feature is the Waffle Medic move ; when players don't get hurt, they'll earn points that fill up a bar. When full, it can be used to become invincible temporarily.
Warfare: The primary gameplay mode. You can adjust settings for life bars, items, and the like to customize your match. When bought, there are options that alter the match, such as Big Warfare and Poisoned Warfare. It can be done solo, or up to 4 players(couch) or 8 players(online).
Story Mode: Quantum of Waffles: The story mode of the game. It's a 3D action-adventure beat em' up platformer. Talk about a mouthful. It can be played alone or with a buddy, online or couch.
The Tower of Terrible Threats and Tons of Treasure: This solo mode features the player scaling a 100 floor tower, randomly generated. Along the way, they'll gain treasure, solve puzzles, and battle. At the end, they'll face Bonetail.
Boss Rush: Once all bosses are fought, this mode is unlocked. At the end of this, the player will face a new boss: Galactus. It can be played solo or with a buddy(online or couch).
Marketplace: Use the coins you've earned from other modes to buy a whole bunch of things.
Castle Izzon: A large castle where the brothers Bizzon and Rizzon live. Bizzon will share information, while Rizzon will chat with you.
Bonus Games: Assorted mini-games.
Story Mode: Quantum of Waffles
The story mode of the game. In an alternate continuity, various forms of media co-exist on separate planets, but find themselves assembled by Nick Fury when attacked by various shadowy creatures. Read the whole story here.
The roster consists of 12 starter characters and 12 unlockable characters to strike a balance between too small and too bloated. $ indicates a costume that must be bought.
The mascot of Fantendo. This guy is like Mario at this point, he barely requires any explanation. Originally a bland mascot, now a complex bearman who loves a human woman. Fantendoverse lore is complicated.
Unten is a balanced fighter, so don't expect anything mind-blowing from his playstyle, but he's reliable when you need him.
Unten blasts a single thunder bolt across the screen. It's easy to avoid, but has great range and will stun the enemy if it lands, as well as do some damage.
Unten slings Fanti ahead, grabbing items and opponents unlike. Unten can fling these, or keep them. When an enemy is caught, they can also be slammed into the ground.
Unten eats a Blump, which will enhance his next attack and triple the power of his Thunder Blast. However, if hit while Unten is eating, he'll have to start over.
Unten creates a new timeline, which he hops through in a portal. He'll then come out another portal in a random part of the stage.
A cutscene shows the end of Zeon, with Unten and other escaped Beorns crashing to Earth in firey escape pods, raining down destruction on the enemy. Although each pod doesn't do much damage, they can do tons combined.
It's Mario! He's in every umbrella. But he wants to shake things up, so he's in his first appearance here.
8-Bit Mario is unique in that he only has 2 health, no matter the strength of the attack. Despite this, he's powerful, fast, athletic and hard to hit.
Mario jumps into the air and slams down onto the opponent, doing large damage to them, twice if the players presses the jump button at the right time. It's easy to dodge though, and pretty slow.
Mario becomes Fire Mario and fires three fireballs. These are small and weak, but very fast and bounce around. If they hit, the enemy may be set on fire.
Mario becomes invincible for 3 seconds, allowing him to absorb attacks if timed correctly.
Mario hits a ? Block, releasing a Poison Mushroom that will float around for a few seconds. If the enemy touches it, they'll be poisoned.
Mario hits a ? Block, releasing a 1-Up that he grabs. This will resurrect Mario once if killed.

It's the super-cool hedgehog with radical attitude! Before the dark times(we don't speak of them...), Sonic was an adorable silent protagonist always facing off against Dr. Robotnik.
Classic Sonic is definitely a glass cannon, being super fast and decently strong but not having much defense.
Sonic rolls into a ball and spins away at high speeds, doing high damage to enemies. It's hard to control though, and will stop if Sonic hits a wall.
Sonic puts up a random shield for a moment to absorb a single attack. Regular does nothing, thunder attracts nearby items, water can absorb two fire attacks, and fire can absorb two water/ice attacks.
Sonic quickly runs to the other side of the screen. If something is in his way, he'll be stopped.
Sonic jumps and curls into a ball mid-jump, hopping onto the enemy. If the player can keep it up, they can infinitely stomp on the opponent. When dismounting, he can double jump.
Sonic gets the seven Chaos Emeralds and turns into Super Sonic for a small period of time. In this form, he can fly, go twice as fast, and is invincible.
Waa. Wario is Mario's enemy and opposite in many ways: greedy, obnoxious, and loud. If the price is right, he'll help out though.
Wario is an oddball, being a character with lots of weight and power but also fairly athletic. Despite this, he's fairly slow and an up-close fighter.
Wario blasts off with an explosive Wario Waft, shooting him into the air and doing damage to those in his way and those in the blast-off range. It can be charged for extra power.
Wario uses his magnet to draw in items and the opponent near him.
Wario charges towards the opponent, knocking them away and doing heavy damage. It's pretty slow and easy to avoid though.
Wario picks up the nearby opponent and shakes them up, causing them to lose money, items, and deplete their Waffle Weapon bar.

Vlad Plasmius ($)
The mascot of a long-gone era. Crash Bandicoot is a crazy islander who frequently battles against the villainous Dr. Cortex. Ahh, the 90s.
Crash is very fast, great at fighting in the air, and decently strong. Despite this, he's a bit slippery and hard to control and he can't take too many hits. If only he had Aku Aku on.

The Reggienator ($)
Purple Pikmin Reggie
Once Upon a Time's equivalent of the Ugly Duckling. Uh, yeah, not joking. A better description would be the daughter of Snow White and Prince Charming as well as The Savior.
Emma Swan is an excellent character all around, but has to deal with the rule of using magic: it has a price. As such, every magical move does damage to her as well.

A Kaleesh cyborg who lead the droid army and had lightsabers but no force powers. Obi-Wan Kenobi fired a blaster at his gut sack. Star Wars is weird.

The multiverse's biggest traitor. Leah is a psychotic doctor who has gone from Chaotic Evil to Chaotic Neutral over time. I doubt she'll ever be good pals with Unten though.

But Mario was already in this game, you say. Well we gotta fill that roster. So have modern Mario or some shit. I'm lazy.
Mario, unsurprisingly, is pretty balanced. Nothing is special about him but he does have great control and is reliable.

Rehasing characters again? Damn, I should be ashamed of myself. This Sonic is Cool and Radical and usually obnoxious. Are his games as good as Classic Sonic's? Who fucking knows. This isn't a forum, it's a fighting game.
Sonic isn't that different than Classic Sonic. He has a bit better defense, but at the cost of being harder to control.
Sonic jumps into the air, becomes a ball, and smashes into the opponent. This move is quick and homing, but not that strong and it can't be done repeatedly in a row.

Tony Stark is an egotistical, womanizing engineer who has a near-death experience and decides to stop making weapons of destruction and decides to make weapons of defense, fighting alongside the Avengers as the Incredible Iron Man!
Iron Man is a pretty excellent character, but has the unique gimmick that all of his attacks and moves have a chance of failing, leaving him stunned for a few seconds.
Iron Man blasts pure energy from his hand gauntlet. These short bursts of energy are fast and powerful, but pretty easy to avoid due to their small size.
