Third party DRM: SteamThis game requires a free Steam account to play.
Final Exam is a pure, action-rich 2.5D side-scroller, drenched in the blood and caustic humor inspired by the teen horror movie genre.
On the way to their former high-school for rocking what should have been the party of their life, four long-time buddies find themselves stranded in a deserted town swarmed by aggressive and monstrous creatures. No horror flick cliché is safe from the chainsaw of the developer, Mighty Rocket Studio. It’s a wild mash-up of monsters, baseball bats, flamethrowers, and references to both video games and teen horror movies!
Playable alone and in cooperative mode (local & online), Final Exam lets you play as one of four different characters, each with their own skills and abilities. Geared toward action and all-out brawling, Final Exam’s combat emphasizes combos, follow-up attacks, and score-multipliers! Survive the packs of monsters trying to skin you alive, unlock new weapons, and complete objectives throughout a variety of huge levels. Outreaching the score marks, and finding all the hidden weapons and items will net you more characteristic and skill points to level your character up, unlock new weapons, skills, and other devastating abilities allowing you to chain even more impressive combos! At any time, you can get back to some of earlier levels to try your new toys, and top new hi-scores thanks to your new abilities.
Choose your favorite among 4 different characters. Each one gets his/her own skills, stats and weapons of choice! Along 8 chapters, complete many missions with varied objectives to escape the mess you’re stuck in, all the while defeating hordes of monsters clawing at you!
Enemies come in different flavors: some are fast, some fly, others are strong and are twice your size, 10 times your weight... adopt the best strategy to beat them all! Use the most adapted weapons and unleash your super combos! Destroying tons of enemies makes your combo score increase significantly... but beware not to get hit, as it will reset your combo multiplier! Reaching hi-scores not only give you bragging rights with your friends, it also lets you earn more skill points upon reaching the exit of the levels.
Level-up your characters; improve your characteristics, unlock new skills, weapons, and devastating new combos!
The stronger you are, the more damage you will inflict. Try to get the highest possible score and climb the global ranking of
Final Exam, daring your friends to do better... or to join you in your game!
While extremely fun in solo, Final Exam rises to an entirely different dimension in Coop, with up to 4 players (4 players online, 2 players in local)! Team up with 3 other players to survive the crazy missions and mad monsters being thrown at you all along the 8 action-rich chapters.
Split your team to fill your objectives as fast as possible, or stick together as a cohesive group to increase your chances of survival against the ever-stronger waves of really angry monsters! Enemy strength matches your group size – the bigger your group, the bigger the threat... opening the opportunity of achieving even bigger hi-scores!
Playing with other players opens all new possibilities during the combat. Juggle monsters with your friends, cover your teammates while they’re reloading that badass rocket launcher, or protect them while they carry a critical object for your next objective! Final Exam in Coop, it’s more explosions, more monsters and so much more boundless fun!
Good but not really goodsakalj1 | Jan. 27, 2015 | See all sakalj1's reviews »
I had big expectations about this game, but they all fall apart in first 20 min of gameplay. I played whole game in coop with my friend, game is nice, it's good idea, but it's all seen and done. As I said, I played it coop and that made the game more interesting, if I was playing solo I would probably quitted after 30 min. It's a mix of Left 4 Dead, Deadlight and maybe Street Fighter. It sounds awesome but believe me it isn't. I cannot give this game higher rating. Graphics are okay, could be better. The biggest thing which annoyed me is there are 8 missions but 2 maps. You are either in sewers, or in amusement park. And worst thing about this game it's VERY EASY ! Drops are everywhere, you can heal by eating "burgers and fries" and you find them all the time. Finding a melee weapon doesn't make much difference, except for look. So spiked bat and machette do absolutely same damage. Good thing is I got this game from a friend, I would kick myself if I bought that even for price as 9,99$ My advice, buy it on sale if you have to.. But rather keep your money !

Final Exam contains both a single player mode and multiplayer gameplay allows (up to four users via the Internet and more than two in a local network). Before you choose to play your character, which the game gets experience points and advance to the next level. Developing a hero gain access to new weapons, abilities and attacks. Try it by yourself!
Beautiful, but not very original..XGpredator | Nov. 11, 2013 | See all XGpredator's reviews »
Mighty Rocket Studio did i good job for a 'first game'. Final Exam is indeed very classic and far from perfect single player, but it will delight fans of the genre through his exemplary playability . If you have friends willing to join you in the adventure, there is no doubt that you will spend a few pleasant evenings. Otherwise, you gotta go above the low originality and flat scenario to enjoy this adventure steeped in the typical teen-humor movies.

I never heard about this game until a few weeks ago when I saw it featured on this website's hot titles pages. I was immediately hooked when I saw the gameplay footage as it also touted an online co-op feature with side scrolling brawling (even vertical scrolling at times) with friends.
I ended up purchasing it on Steam directly and have played many hours into it. My biggest gripe is that it lacks an online lobby. You can only play online with people on your friend list.
However, that isn't nearly enough to cripple the game as the community hub is rich with activity!

I tried early access and I have to say, that I'm really interested in this game. Me, that never was a fun of zombie-hordes killing games, pretty much sunk in the first mission available in EA. For now, we've got one character, tutorial and one story mission, no achievements, but to be honest - it's almost complete game. Just give access to all skills and mission, nothing more is needed. If you're a fan of slaying zombies and/or side-scrolling games, you totally have to give it a try.
