Rumbleverse (Mac)

Rumbleverse on Mac

Rumbleverse is a free-to-play battle royale video game dripping with the glitz and glamor of the professional wrestling world. The game is a breath of fresh air in a crowded genre and offers a lot of fun thanks to its dynamic battles and cartoony design.

Gameplay

The game starts with forty players that are thrown into Grapital City and forced to battle with each other until only one player remains. The Rumbleverse fighting system is intuitive and simple to learn from a quick playthrough.

Players play from a third-person perspective and don’t have access to any kind of weapons. Melee combat is the main focus of the game, which makes it stand out from other games in the genre.

There are a number of base attacks that can be used in fights. You can drop your opponents with punches, kicks and elbow strikes, but you can also use different objects in your surroundings as weapons. Blocking a basic attack is possible, but blocking a greater strike is not, hence the latter must be avoided when possible.

At the start of each match, players need to search the city for hidden magazines which may be used to learn advanced fighting techniques. They also need to look for boxes containing potions that boost their health, stamina, and strength. In a single game, you are only allowed to use ten potions, so you need to make careful calculations on what exactly to boost.

Climbing any of the game’s many buildings is a fast and easy way to get a full glance at Grapital City or gain a tactical advantage. As in other battle royale games, players have to remain within a constantly shrinking play area. On average, each match typically lasts around 15 minutes.

Players may customize their in-game character’s appearance by spending a currency called Fan Mail they receive from winning matches and leveling up.

New rules

Rumbleverse also has a few surprises up its sleeve. For one, it encourages everyone to engage in dangerous fights by giving them random perks once they reach particular damage thresholds. 

For example, there is a perk that can heal you if you stay still for a while. There is a perk that can add a bounce-off effect to your regular three-hit combination. There is also a perk that can add a lot more range and damage to your dropkick attack.

It’s easy to dismiss these perks at first glance, but they may have a huge impact if you know how to use them. Also, they provide a lovely touch of randomness that makes each game of Rumbleverse seem unique. What is more, the developers have done a great job at balancing them, so other players won’t feel completely helpless. 

Another major highlight is that you are not damaged by being outside the ring that reduces the play area in regular intervals. Instead, a countdown of 10 will begin if you are found outside the ring, and if you’re still there when the count hits zero, you’ll be disqualified, just like in true pro wrestling.

This is a nice change, especially when there are just a few people left in the game and the playfield is so small that you sometimes have to sprint out of the ring for a second. It also makes for some nail-biting moments, as players race to get back in before the 10-count, or attempt to prevent an opponent from re-entering the ring.

Verdict

The key to victory in Rumbleverse is trying to predict where the final phase of the battle might take place and selecting strikes that will be most effective. Players also need to have a good understanding of the moves that can be countered by others and the objects they can use as weapons in the different surroundings.

If you are new to this type of game, Rumbleverse does have a tutorial inside the game’s Playground mode that you can use as a starting point. Thanks to the ever-changing environment, players are always challenged to adapt to new situations and the matches never get boring. The game strikes a good mix between accessibility and complexity to creates something fresh, exciting, and highly competitive.
