There’s just something about local multiplayer games that online multiplayer game still can’t match. The fact that your buddy is sitting right next to you as you’re both yelling at each other over who’s going to win is an experience you just can’t have online. It’s also an experience you can enjoy when your internet is down. With that said, it’s kinda sad that there really aren’t that many local multiplayer games around anymore, but when here is, it’s usually a treat. The latest game I’m taking a look at is INVERSUS by Hypersect and this has both online and local multiplayer modes. For this post, I’m mainly talking about general gameplay and the local multiplayer aspect of the game.
In INVERSUS, the player’s walls are the opposing player’s paths and their walls are the player’s paths. Each shot flips tile colors in an attempt to block, trap, and close in on the enemy. Firing a bullet opens up a path for the opposition while also closing off a path for the player.
So for this video, I’m playing with my son who is 10 years old. I believe in most of the video, he’s playing as the white block while I’m playing as the black block. This was his first time playing and as you can see, he picked up the general idea very quickly. That means that you too should have no trouble learning the general dynamics of the game. It’s very simple but there’s a lot of strategy involved. I just like the fact that he was able to pick it up so quickly and gave me quite the run for my money on several occasions.
The graphics are very minimalist, but work well for the hectic gameplay. It keeps things simple so you can concentrate on the game especially when things are moving along so quickly. What’s also really good about the local multiplayer is the variety of different levels you can unlock and play on. This keeps the gameplay fresh so you’re not playing on the same map over and over again.
INVERSUS is fun for players of all ages. The local multiplayer makes for a rather interesting party game for up to 4 players and the simplicity of the gameplay itself means anyone can pretty much jump right into it. While simple, the game is still quite challenging and again, requires a lot of skill and strategy to win. If you like local multiplayer games and want one that is fun for everyone, I highly suggest checking out INVERSUS.
