The Philosopher's Burn, the most legendary put down in history, is the prize as the world's best trash talkers face off in the diss battle of the millennium!

Slam Fighter II by Team Dogpit is a 2d fighting game in which the combatants reduce each other's hitpoints by delivering well-timed putdowns to the beat of a pulsing retro-style original soundtrack!


* Talk smack as one of six fully voiced elite trashtalkers. School your opponent by typing insults to the beat — the better your flow, the sicker the burn!
*  Insult your way to the top in single player Campaign Mode
* Clown on your friends in local hotseat Versus Mode 
* Plug in a second keyboard and use it as a second controller in Versus Mode, meaning your friends can't trip you up by typing on their own keyboard during your turn!
* Featuring 10 all-new EDM tracks by Screaming Color

New in Slam Fighter II 2.0.0!

*  Each character has different strengths and weaknesses! See if you can master them all!
* Your diss actually has to be a real word! Get ready to talk smack on the fly!
* Completely rewritten engine with the best beat detection ever seen in a verbal throwdown!
* Completely new performances with audio quality so good you'll swear you're being insulted in real life!
*  Need to step away for a moment? You can pause the game! WOW!!
* Achievements, leaderboards, and a good old fashioned high score table!
* Different resolution options! Want to play windowed but larger than 640x480 resolution? Go for it!
*  Six different stage backgrounds that pulse in time with the music. Don't like flashy moving backgrounds? You can disable them!
* Gallery where you can unlock profiles and character art!
*  Cross-platform support!  Throw shade in Mac OSX or in Linux too!
*  And way more!

Abort Trap: 6 is the important part, I think. An error code or something. I can do testing on request.

Hey thanks for letting me know! I'm going to look into this ASAP!

Hi, I downloaded the game again and am getting the same error. I looked into the files and there is no file at this location, so perhaps that's missing from the executable?


Thank you! That's helpful!

also, I'm super sorry about the delay in fixing this; the project is from 2017 and I've been having a hard time getting it to build again! If you can get me your purchase ID, I'll happily initiate a refund. You can tell me here or via email, info@teamdogpit.com -- also, if you get me your email/email me, I'll give you a key to my other commercial release, The Cherry Orchard, for your trouble. Again, apologies!

No worries. I got it from the racial justice bundle.

I would like to be able to run at a higher resolution and single instance checking since I was able to kickoff multiple windows. Solid effort!


The game has been completely rewritten from the ground up and now has multiple resolution options!  I hope you give it a try!
