Games @ EGX Rezzed – DiscStorm – By XMPT Games

The Game

Fast and furious arena-based combat game DiscStorm tests your mettle to the limit as you hurl flying discs that ricochet around the game’s arenas at break-neck speed in your quest to be the finest Disc Master around. Whether you’re lobbing them at an incoming pack of zombies or your best friend’s face, you’ll need split-second reactions to succeed.

Featuring a wealth of game modes to keep the challenges fresh, DiscStorm is a force to be reckoned with. Choose from classic first-to-ten brawls, tactical games of survival and the dreaded one-hit-kill “Death Disc” mode!

Each arena brings its own unique play-style and enemies. Whether it be the laser-shooting Stone Golem in the jungle temple or the lava-spewing Fire Elemental of the volcano lair, exciting new challenges await you at every turn!

Challenge your friends or foes at home or online with intense multiplayer deathmatches and set the leaderboards on fire! Or prove your skills as Disc Master in the single player adventure which will unlock new costumes for the quirky cast of characters, plus diverse environments which come with their own formidable enemies and epic boss fights!

DiscStorm blends ‘90s nostalgia with modern elements. The soundtrack to your battles fuses modern dance trends with retro chiptunes, whilst the artwork blends classic pixel art with high fidelity graphics.

Features

  • Fast-paced arena combat – Gameplay that’s easy to pick up, but truly difficult to master: dodge and deflect flying discs as they ricochet around the arena at lightning speed.

My Experience

Upon approaching this game I was immediately handed a controller and invited to play against other passers-by. We were thrown right into the action playing a 4 player battle.  The game then circled through different game modes such as;

Pass the Bomb – One player is given a bomb and they must get rid of it before it kills them by hitting other players with their disc

King – Race to the crown and wear it long enough to accumulate points to win the match

Whilst I have never played this game before it reminded me of games like “Friendship Club“, “Ricochet”  and “Tron” due to the players battling through interesting fun stages while using Discs as your main weapon (in most of the game modes).
