Starflux Rivals heading to Switch
Posted on December 6, 2017 by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Switch eShop
Similar to the way in which Shiftlings was confirmed for Switch, we have news about another title from Rock Pocket Games heading to the console. The studio’s website shows that Starflux Rivals is also on the way.
Starflux Rivals is described as “a multiplayer competitive brawler” that takes inspiration from the likes of Smash Bros. and Worms. Gravity is the hook here, as it will pull you towards the nearest surface. That means fights can take place while walking upside down, and the game’s physics will allow you to orbit around the arena to surprise your opponents.
We have more information about Starflux Rivals below, along with a trailer.
Starflux Rivals is a multiplayer competitive brawler inspired by games such as Super Smash Bros. and Worms. The game is easy to get into, but standing out among the crowd requires the mastery of both the fluid combat mechanics and the game’s unique gravity system.
As you jump, dash, and dig your way across the battlefield, gravity will constantly pull you towards the nearest surface. This means that you can have intense fights while walking upside down or use the physics to your advantage by orbiting around the arena to surprise your opponents.
Destructible terrain adds another wrinkle to the fold. By digging or blowing up the ground beneath your feet, Starflux Rivals provides a constantly changing battlefield to fight on. Gravity also changes as the environment does, adding an extra layer of depth to the gameplay.
There are currently three different game modes and six playable characters each with their own unique special weapon and playstyle. Pickups and environmental hazards litter the arena and spice up the action. By combining these with abilities such as block, dash, and throw, there are tons of ways to outsmart your opponent and gain an edge in combat.
