Knockout City

Critics Consensus (Play It)

Knockout City restructures dodgeball into a competitive team sport, with varied and fun game modes and tight controls. The game lacks content at launch, but the base experience is strong, and there is a lot of room to grow.

4.5/5 stars

Velan envisions a game full of rival Crews, each developing their own infamous aesthetics and playstyles, and I’d love to be part of something like that. But that will only happen if Knockout City can carve out enough of a niche in a very competitive online space to cultivate its own online community. I don’t know if that will happen right now, but I can say that Knockout City feels unique to play, look at, and listen to. It’s not the first time dodge ball has been recreated in video game form (props to Kunio-kun and the rest of the Super Dodge Ball gang), but it is a unique fusion of arena combat and the original gym class contest of champions. Most importantly, it’s a hell of a lot of fun to play.

9.5/10

Velan Studios put an impressive amount of work into a confluence of themes and mechanics that all work together in harmony for a symphony that resonates with a rubbery thwack. Everything feels polished to a degree that is rather monumental for a day one launch, and their plans to support Knockout City for the foreseeable future will ensure it stays downloaded on my hard drive.

9/10

It feels like a lot of care has been put into Knockout City. The gameplay offers a satisfying loop, and the amount of customisation is staggering. As time ticks on, Knockout City could prove to be a big hit.
