Smooth Operator is a multiplayer-only versus game that pits two friends against each other in a fight to the death, with just three basic moves made available to both combatants. You can only use one type of move once per round, and the first person to win three rounds is announced the winner.
In any round players can choose to either attack, block their opponent's move, or fake an action to draw their adversary into rushing at them. Once you've executed a move, it's impossible to resort to it again until the next round. A fighter will also lose immediately if they press a button before the round begins, hence awarding a bonus point to their opponent.
The Windows, Linux and OS X versions of Smooth Operator are available to download now from the Ludum Dare site.
