Yep, another “Misadventures” post after a while. This time, I won’t be covering only one, but two games!
The first one is a game that goes by the name TOXIKK. It is a fast-paced multiplayer FPS game much in the vein of Unreal Tournament and other such old-school titles. Launched on Steam Early Access on January 22nd, TOXIKK has seen a few updates and gained a reasonably good community around it.
Most of the time, I’ve been playing botmatches in TOXIKK. While I have also looked at the multiplayer side of the game, I’ve stuck to botmatches mainly for the sake of unlocking achievements in relative safety. That’s not to say the multiplayer is by any means bad – it’s essentially identical to single-player and equally enjoyable.
The second game is called Robot Roller-Derby Disco Dodgeball, and it is, similarly to TOXIKK, a multiplayer FPS game. But it boasts a rather unique concept – instead of shooting recklessly at anything that moves, you defend yourself by picking up dodgeballs scattered about on the map and throwing them. (And by praying to God that you don’t miss – else you’re fucked.)
Disco Dodgeball, unlike TOXIKK, has a single-player arcade mode in which you complete as many matches as you can without dying. Well, you do have 5 lives, but anyway… But where Disco Dodgeball absolutely shines is the multiplayer. Thanks to the various game modes and the unique concept, the multiplayer side is insanely fun and, to an extent, even addictive.
And that’s basically it for today’s post. Bye!
