Review: Arena: Cyber Evolution
Arena: Cyber Evolution (ACE) is a physics-based Sports game that combines elements of the popular MOBA genre, with gameplay similar to ice-hokey. Developed by Spearhead Games, ACE pits two teams of three super-powered Sports figures against each other in a bid to score goals for their team. To do this, each hero may pass, shoot, intercept and juke with the puck using intuitive controls and special abilities.
By featuring a MOBA-like champion logic, ACE brings an unprecedented twist to the Sports genre by allowing players to choose from a variety of super-powered heroes and what style of gameplay they prefer to build their own team strategies.
Arena: Cyber Evolution features dynamic map events which augment the game’s physics by adding obstacles; including directional wind currents, reflective walls, pitfalls and even a frozen map surface. Each of these presents new challenges for teams to adapt to as they all change how both the player’s character, and the puck behave on the field. In the future, Spearhead Games hopes to give control of these events over to spectators watching the current match, making each game truly unpredictable.
