Marcus Estrada writes: "The game stars Queen, a psychotic killer (as most video game protagonists are!) who must fight through hordes of enemies to attain a high score. Combo Queen has a retro pixel art aesthetic and a 2D sidescrolling. Players maintain a combo by attacking enemies once a gauge closes in on said enemy. When the opponent attacks, touching the screen with two fingers instead of one allows Queen to parry. Finally, when the burst meter is full, touching the screen with three fingers activates her special attack. This action gameplay is fast, simplistic, and should prove enjoyable in short bursts."
