Super Buckyball Tournament from the developers over at Pathea Games. Welcome to the not-so-distance cyberpunk future where speed, strategy and intensity have been smashed together to create a new sport of chaos and fun clash together.
Super Buckyball is a new take on the soccer/football spin that we have seen from games like rocket league. A 3v3 4-minute match ups with a selection of 7 characters. Split in to three different ranges Forward, Balance, and Defenders. All having their own unique ability’s and specials to enhance the game.
Take Pai the head starter of the game. Pai who is a Forward, has a jolt ability that allows him to dash forward, just like Tracer from over watch, and a special ability that magnetically pulls the ball to him and kicks a curve ball in to the goal automatically.
Then there is the defender Gridiron who has a shield to keep the goal safe and a special ability that creates a gravity well at his shield. Dragging everything including nearby players too, then exploding sending everything flying.
Each having fun ways of playing, but I don’t think there is much strats when it comes to what player you should select, none seem to counter another it’s just whoever you like to play as and you’re not locked out of a character if another one of your team mates plays that character.
You are also able to use items of different variety to help you or hinder your opponents. Items like protective shields, Ice walls, making the ball heavy and many more that can change the direction of the game for a few seconds and give you time to strategies’ what to do next.
A pretty well-balanced game that requires team work and if teams are quite evenly matched, it becomes extremely fun and challenging trying to out maneuver and outwit your opponents. There are only a few negatives or flaws to this game so far.
One being the maps there are only a few out right now with very minimal differences. Hopefully more maps and diversity to the backgrounds come out in the near future to keep the game fresh. Not a negative but would love to see what new characters they can create also.
Right now, the game is in preseason so you can jump in get acquainted with the game before it kicks of its season, I don’t know what the season intel’s or what might be the prize but it seems like a great game for your competitive team-based players.
Hopefully this will soon be another great game that people will stream and see great teams emerge from, but that could just be wishful thinking only time will tell.
