Best Friends Fighter is a simple fighting game between robots made up of lots of blocks with faces. Created for the JIG Casual Gameplay Design Competition, the idea is to smash the other robot up so that its main Facecube hits the ground before yours.
First off, make sure you watch the whole intro - it is lovely and awesome. Jumping into the game, at first it appears that the way the robots break up is a little random, but time your swings correctly and you'll be able to claim the victory more times than not. You can also build your own robot out of Facecubes - a nice idea, although I'm not sure I noticed all that much difference between robots.
The game is also available to play with two players on one keyboard, and features some great music. You should give it a go! Play over at Jay is Games.
