Since the official release of Omega Strikers last week I've been playing a heck of a lot of it. In that time, I've unlocked all of the strikers, played a good amount of all the game modes, and ascended out of the lowest ranks of the game's competitive mode.
I'm still by no means an expert, but there are a few things I've picked up that have really elevated my game and could possibly raise yours as well.
At the end of last year, I had the opportunity to test out Omega Strikers while it was still in beta. Fast forward to now and the game is officially out with some marked improvements and changes. It'll take some time to solidify thoughts on the game into a fully-fledged review, but until then I can share some impressions and recommendations about this exciting new kind of multiplayer game.
If you aren't up-to-date on what Omega Strikers is, it's a 3v3 competitive game about a fake sport that most closely resembles hockey. Teams all control hero characters with special abilities that they can use to hit a puck around (or each other) as they try score goals. In press releases it's commonly described as "Rocket-League-of-Legends," which is accurate enough, though I'd say a more apt comparison would be to games like Windjammers and Pokémon Unite.
Just before Christmas, Odyssey Interactive brough their fast and fun 3v3 knockout striker title, Omega Strikers, to mobile in the form of an open beta. The game had previously been available to play in beta on Steam since September, but when the game was announced the developers were very clear about their intent to bring the game to smaller screens.
I had been previously dabbling with Omega Strikers on PC, but only truly dove in head-first once I could get my hands on it in mobile form. Since release, I've poured a ton of time into it and can shed some insight on future plans for the game in addition to some tips to help you get started if you want to pick it up yourself and try it out.
Rocket League Sideswipe continues to be one of our favorite multiplayer games to keep coming back to, and recently Psyonix gave players more of a reason to. With Season 4 launching this week, the game's beloved Hoops mode returns for Ranked and casual play in addition to an entirely different casual mode known as Mutator Madness.
The season also brings some new cosmetics that all seem to be revolving around medieval tropes, but the real new thing to talk about is this new mode and exactly how it works. Read on below to find out more.
Rocket League has finally made its way to mobile, albeit in a slightly modified form. Rocket League Sideswipe pits teams of two against each other in a sport where the object is to use cars to knock a gigantic ball into a goal point. Since its launch earlier this week, we dove into the game to get a sense of how it stands in comparison to the original Rocket League as well as a standalone mobile experience. Watch the video above to view some extended gameplay of it and read on below for our thoughts on our time with it so far.
It seems the primary goal for the creators of Rocket League Sideswipe was to make an experience that feels as frenetic and tense as traditional matches of Rocket League but in a streamlined format that is easier to play in bursts and while using touch controls. For the most part, it seems developers Psyonix nailed this goal. By making the playing field a flat, 2D space and shortening matches to 2 minutes, Rocket League Sideswipe feels super satisfying to control and easy to play on-the-go whenever you have a few minutes.
Grand Mountain Adventure, a finalist at the Big Indie Awards 2018, has finally raced its way onto Android. The hugely impressive open-world skiing title hails from Swedish developer Toppluva, a studio made up of 3 snowboarding brothers.

Having swung its way onto iOS and Android devices over a year ago, arcade multiplayer title Mini Golf King has returned from the clubhouse with all-new content in tow.
Bluehole PNIX’s free-to-play offering already provided a quirky twist on the popular sport by pitting players against more than 30 trap-filled, bonus-packed courses, and the game’s latest update has added an all-new gameplay mode and an additional power-up to the equation.
Hole-in-one Challenge, a new way to play Mini Golf King, is the update’s headline feature. In this mode, players are pitted against a series of courses where the ball must be sunk in one shot. Racking up a hole in one will fire them through to the next level and rewards will be dished out each time.
The Golf Pin power-up, which can be purchased from the store or found in select chests, is another new addition and it will help players improve their game by adding extra wind resistance, distance and other enhancements to every shot they take.

Bluehole PNIX has just recently added a brand new update that aims to sink even more competition and party antics into its arcade multiplayer, Mini Golf King.
Shrinking down the noble sport onto mobile, developer Bluehole PNIX adds in a fair share of whimsical features that you're unlikely to find at your local Putt-Putt golf course. Bomb traps, accelerator pads, tube slides and swinging drawbridges are just a few of the obstacles you'll encounter over 30 levels, adding just the right amount of zaniness to compliment its serene visuals and laid back gameplay.
