Multiplayer dodgeball game
Knockout City is a sports game developed by Velan Studios, the team behind Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit. It is a competitive multiplayer game that brings the recreational sport of dodgeball into the video game world. Here, you can team up with other players online and participate in a team-based brawl.
Tonally, it has the same wackiness of games like Fortnite or the recent Destruction AllStars. However, the distinction between the game and typical arena shooters is that Knockout City does not require precise aiming whatsoever. With this, mouse and keyboard players shouldn't have any serious advantage over other players.
Knockout City is a team-based, competitive dodgeball game. Here, you team up with two or more players and bean your opponents to take them out. However, there is more to the game than simply pelting them with balls. For one, players can charge up their throws for faster and powerful shots. You can also use some fancy throws to confuse your opponents. Each player can take two hits before going down.
There are six different types of balls on top of the standard ones. You can use these special balls as weapons to take out your opponents easier. More than the balls, you can also tackle your opponents on the ground. You can even roll yourself up and become a ball yourself. The catch, however, is that by using a player as a ball, you risk enemies catching you or teammates.
Knockout City is an online-only multiplayer title, meaning there are no offline or single-player components available. It has six different modes, either 3v3, 4v4, or free-for-all. It also has five maps at launch, which are, conversely, far too large for 3v3 matches. Unfortunately for players, the game is not free. There are also no loot boxes, and the in-game store only sells cosmetic items.
For the most part, Knockout City is an enjoyable game. The inherent fun of dodgeball shines throughout the game, which makes it a genuine riot. Moreover, it comes with specialized balls, adding more spice to the match. However, the lack of voice chat makes the teamwork aspect a little harder. Nevertheless, it is a fun game that allows you to relive your childhood.
