Description

Features

  • Unique Mechanic : The core of the gameplay is based on a simple one-button mechanic. Characters hold an air cannon that allows them to vacuum air in and release it as a blast. It can be used in various ways: pushing an opponent, grabbing, holding and throwing items as projectiles, navigating on slippery surfaces by giving yourself a push, etc...

  • A Game for Everyone : Meant as a friendly competitive experience, everyone will be able to enjoy themselves playing Aeolis Tournament. However, skills matter. The games are skill-based, varied and deep enough so that while the main mechanic is shared between each modes, the skills and strategy required are wildly different.

  • Tournament Mode : The heart of the game is the tournament mode where players will compete in a succession of games earning tournament ranking points after each of them. Whoever has the most points after the set number of games wins the Tournament. And bragging rights!

  • Additional Features:

    • Achievements & progression system

    • Customization items & skins

    • A configurable experience, local and online

    • Different chaos events in each game modes
