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.

Here's what you need to know about Rocket League Sideswipe

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.

Mini Golf King update hits the green with new features in tow

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

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.

Ready to conquer the greens and the fairways? Mini Golf King is available to download for free from the App Store and Google Play, and the new update is ready to install now.

Casual online multiplayer Mini Golf King receives a brand new update

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.
