The Love-Child of Rocket League and Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater: Decksplash (VIDEO)
Known for creating titles that are unwieldy in nature like Surgeon Simulator or I Am Bread, whose mechanics are intentionally over complicated, it’s hard to imagine a Bossa Studios title that isn’t a mechanical monster. That’s not to say the experiences are bad, they can be quite fun because they’re so awkward. Now a new creation of Bossa Studios is coming as something like a cross between Rocket League and Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater called Decksplash.
As the name implies, the game requires players to “splash” areas around a map, similar to the game mode Graffiti from Tony Hawk Pro Skater games. Players control areas with paint based on tricks which are given a score. If another player completes a trick with a better score, the paint is changed to the second player’s control. It’s a interesting game mode, all the better as it’s expanded upon with Decksplash’s 3v3 multiplayer rather than the 1v1 of THPS.
Now the game doesn’t necessarily play out like a skateboarding game, instead it handles a lot more like Rocket League. Players don’t play a character standing on a skateboard, just the skateboard itself. There are ramps, rails, and more to trick around on but controls are similar to Rocket League. Players accelerate, jump, and control movement in a fashion similar to the tight responsive handling of the car soccer game. In a sense, you could say it’s Bossa’s best controlling game. Also similar to Rocket League is the large array of decks the player can control. Players xan also customise their decks any way they see fit. New decks and accessories are gained through lootboxes allowing players customize their ride just right.
Do you love skateboarding but hate people as well, say no more, Decksplash is the game for you. The game is set to release on Steam this Spring as an Early Access title for PC gamers.
