Lethal League Review: No Weak Shit

scr15

Lethal League is a competitive projectile fighting game where you have to hit an anti-gravity ball into the face of your opponent to win, all the while jammin to a kickass soundtrack.

The ball speeds up with every strike, up to explosively extreme velocities. Play intense local matches with friends and foes, challenge yourself in the singleplayer mode or battle it out online.

The Good

Great stylish art style. Awesome soundtrack. Amazing gameplay that’s unique, extremely challenging, and fun to play with, especially when you get to hit the ball at an extremely high speed. Really fun to play with friends locally or online, and the online matches are incredibly smooth with really little lag to be found. A handful of unique characters with different play styles and specials to play around with.

The Bad

Craving for more game modes.

The Money

Priced at 14 dollars on Steam, Lethal League is unique, creative, extremely fun, and challenging as f*ck game which proves one of their key features ‘No Weak Shit’ being true. With nothing like it at the market at the moment, and it’s high replay value, it’s defiantly worth the purchase.

Final Thoughts

I’ve been playing the prototype that they had for a while, and had a really fun time playing it, then when i got my hands on the finished version, my enjoyment level went through the roof with nice polish, variety of characters with different play styles, more environments and more awesome music to go along with it, plus the edition of the extremely smooth online battles is just great, and getting really excited when you get the ball running at extremely high speeds. But i do wish there was more game modes to play around with like lets say for example adding a basketball hoop and score and get more points, just something to spice the variety up a bit. I can also see the game being played at a competitive tournament that would be really exciting, if not the most exciting thing to watch.

The Game To have 6/6

Game Shock – Aegis Defenders Alpha Preview

Aegis Defenders is a 16-bit Tactical Platformer where you use ancient technology as magical weapons. In Aegis you venture through the game’s beautiful pixelated world, attack hostile creatures through your adventure, and then start defending important ancient artifacts, weapons, or maybe creatures. What’s nice about it is that there’s normal melee and ranged combat, and tower defense elements where you can lay down turrets, slowing bubbles..etc all the while controlling two characters, and hopefully playing it cooperatively later on.
