Tesla vs Lovecraft – First 15 Minutes of Gameplay and Impressions | PS4

Tesla vs Lovecraft

10tons is a developing machine that just doesn’t stop. Hot of the heals of numerous releases on pretty much every platform, they found time to develop a new game, Tesla vs Lovecraft that will also see release on pretty much every platform. I am lucky enough to be able to check this game out seeing as 10tons usually makes some pretty fun games.

Tesla vs Lovecraft is an arena shooter inspired by the namesakes. Play as the enigmatic inventor Tesla who is the last bastion of reason against the neverending waves of madness. Harness the static energy to power up your Tesla-Mech and give the lovecraftian nightmares a lesson in horror!


  • Tesla-Mech: An immensely powerful machine of war at your disposal. Mow down your opponents with twin-mounted Tesla-Miniguns, and trample over monsters like they were ants.
  • Quantum Teleportation: Dash forward or even zip through solid objects with this handy gadget. Packed neatly into a backpack. (Includes a warning label about Theseus-paradox, whatever that is)
  • Lovecraftian monsters: If nightmares had nightmares, this is what they’d look like. Monsters so horrible they’ll make you eat up your own sanity!
  • Tesla’s Gadgets: Save the world with plethora of inventions and gadgets, including (but not limited to) X-Ray Blade and Death Ray Gun.

Tesla vs Lovecraft plays very similar to many of 10tons recent games such as Neon Chrome, Jydge, and Time Recoil. While similar, it does seem to differentiate itself with a very interesting premise, some new gameplay elements, and a crazy loud soundtrack.

The game itself is still a top-down twin-stick shooter broken up into many small levels. Like other games, there are tons of weapons you can pick up, power-ups you can use, and a ton of enemies to kill on screen at once. The game looks just as good as 10tons other games and features some really cool lighting effects.

The differentiating elements however are the new gameplay elements that build upon previous games. There’s a new teleport feature that can get you out of a sticky situation and actually helps keep the game moving really quickly. Next is a new mech you can acquire by collecting parts. It does massive amounts of damage can really help clear out the hordes. It doesn’t last forever though so make use of it while you got it.

Story wise, there seems to be bits a pieces of it fed to you though haven’t really played far enough yet to really understand it. I will though as I do find the game quite fun. Eventually I’ll get through it and maybe even give the co-op a go as these types of games are usually more fun with some friends.

Overall, it’s not bad at all. I think 10tons might have another winner here. I’ll know soon enough when I play more of it.
