Knockout City (PC) | $10 | Amazon
How do you develop a fresh take on a genre as old as time? It’s not easy. Velan Studio has effectively made a shooter without it being a shooter by replacing guns with balls. The moment-to-moment gameplay feels like that of a third-person arena shooter, but with the unique twist of it being a wacky dodgeball game with fun liberties such as being able to ball yourself up so your teammates can throw you at your enemy. It’s also worth mention the sound design is amazing. Nothing is more satisfying than hearing that echoing rubber bounce as you dome an opponent in their stupid face. Knockout City is free on GamePass with EA Play and is available to purchase on PC for $10 at Amazon.
