Internet game designer Jim Bonacci is most popular for creating the online game Happy Wheels,[1][2] but before he began development on that game, he was trying to create a Street Fighter-esque game only known as Gametest12.


The game consisted of two players (taken from Jim's earlier flash animations) in an art style similar to Happy Wheels but are much earlier and rougher. Player one could perform many finishing moves which were listed to the side of the screen, all of which involved pressing a lot of buttons and were very hard to pull off. Pressing two specific keys gave the player a knife and baseball bat to fight their opponent with. These both performed instant kills (lodging in your opponent's forehead and crushing their head, respectively). Despite the violent nature of the game, it wasn't nearly as violent as other games of the type due to its simplistic cartoon style and unfinished nature.


The game was uploaded to the site as a link and stayed there unlisted for 7 whole years before being removed in late 2013. On June 1st, 2016, however, the game was found via the Internet Archive and Jim uploaded it himself, both are available for play.[3][4]
