Your next door neighbour has borrowed your lawnmower and wont give it back!

The only way to resolve this is semi-violent backyard combat using common garden items as projectiles. Throw them over the fence at your neighbour to teach him a lesson! Make sure you jump out the way of incoming buckets, garden gnomes, potted plants and the like.

Backyard Brawl is best played with a friend sharing the same keyboard.

Got no friends? No problem! Try your skill against a computer-controlled player instead.

your game are just great! im gonna take a look at all 🙌

Hey dude, really love your game. I used it as inspiration for a tiny scratch project. Maybe young aspiring game devs will learn something from it.

Scratch Project

Ended up playing it for a while with my brother. Good idea to add the two player mode! I can't see how you could improve that much on this, because it's a nice game over all.

Great work. The art and sound effects are great and really fun game play. Great with 2 people. 

Great game! had fun playing it with my brother: 9/10 if i were judging


Perfectly executed! Instantly felt "Wow, fuck that guy" as soon as my neighbour attacked me. 

Yeah man, that guy's a jerk! What he needs is a bird box to the face.


Loved it xD

The game looks great and is very impressive for only being made in 2 days :O

Good job you should be really proud of your game :D

Thank you! I'm glad you enjoyed it. Pretty happy with the 2 days work!


Very fun game! The graphics are stunning and love the concept!


Glad you had fun! Simple concepts are sometimes the best, I find.
