About This Game

A secret battle has been waged unnoticed right in our own backyard.

Five prototype toy figures, carriers of the revolutionary Micro Battery, have special instructions from their maker to activate others of their kind. But with limited battery resources, they are forced to fight each other for power. Meanwhile, mechanical tracker monsters pose an even greater threat to a Micro World full of broken toys looking for a second chance. The toys are small, but their war is big.

Key Features:

  • Engage in toy-sized battles spanning over 20 unique locations in the Micro World.
  • Choose from 5 prototype figures and customize them to suit your game and style.
  • Quick swap between 7 different weapon types on the fly for any situation.
  • Includes 10 multiplayer PvP modes, co-op PvE mode, and single player mode.
  • Collect batteries during matches to upgrade and enhance your arsenal.
  • Create and manage your own clan for competitive matches.
  • NEW! Party system lets players fight alongside friends.

-----------This is my review account, because the low playtime.
Graphics:
+ detailed levels in toys optics
- desolate effects
- outdated graphics
- frayed textures

Atmosphere:
+ oblique optics
+ appropriate details such as battery indicators
+ oversubscribed action figures

Sound:
- low noise backdrop
- sound samples are repeated constantly

Balance:
+ well thought out map design
- unbalanced weapons strength

Map Design:
+ varied maps
+ tactical nodal points
+ lovingly designed toy worlds
- which are quite static

Teamplay:
+ communication via quick commands or game chat
+ enemies can be offended by gestures
+ penalties for leaving early a match
- team work is not absolutely necessary
- no class system

Weapons & Extras:
+ extras on item shop or capsule machine
+ seven different weapon classes
- weapons give little to no Feedback
- unfair pay system for special equipment

Multiplayer Mode:
+ good selection of different modes
+ proven game principles
- which were implemented little exciting

Game Size:
+ wave mode for beginners
+ 9 multiplayer modes
- differ only slightly

Multiplayer: medicore
+ multiplayer playtime around 50 hours
- non-dynamic, unbalanced

Actually, crazy, colorful shooter is exactly my case. MicroVolts is then but too little twisted off to me really to please and keep me long at the rod. At the beginning I was still amazed at all the wonderful ideas on the multiplayer maps, but I have seen it all once. Even with a few bugs and latency issues, MicroVolts is a medicore MMO shooter. Those looking for a funny MMO shooter to play should definitely give the game a chance.

Score: 57 / 100

This is my first review. So.. the game is decent I had some fun. BUT there are a lot of "pro" players playing with low levels so when you will meet them the fun will be over when your score is 0/10 and they be like 20/2. Another things is they sometimes get kicked (just because they are good) So it happened to me. At level ~6 playing a sniper only map, the sniper is the only weapon i'm good with. I GOT KICKED. That's it. I unninstaled the game and wrote this. If you are too good at this game, you will get kicked (no exp or points) and if you aren't, there will be others who will make the game not funny for you. Just my oppinion, go ahead and try it

Steam kept recommending this game to me, so I thought I'd give it a shot. I like shooters. I like the art style, this could be fun.

DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS GAME.

Once you get it installed you'll see it comes with a 3rd party "security" suite. I assume to keep cheaters out. I never got that far. The entire time you're trying to do anything the program will keep freezing up to the point Windows will regularly ask if you want to wait or kill the program.

The first thing you're asked to do after logging in to something other than Steam is select a character. You can see each character's base stats and you'll quickly realize this is a pay to win game. The for money characters are more powerful than the free ones. Awesome.

I thought I'd give it a shot anyway and selected a free character. I get a tutorial loading screen and am presented with a map and interface but can't actually do anything. A couple seconds later I'm presented with a connection failed message. The only option is to click ok. Repeat for however long you feel. Didn't even get to try the tutorial. Awesome.

After a few tries I was finally able to get into the game and it has promise. But I'm very much against pay to win games and that's looking more and more like what this is.

I liked this game in the begining but i only had my items for a week because i didnt see the ultra tiny text that said this items will last one week..... so it is a pay2win game. Some pay2win games are fun but this one SUCKS! Brawl Busters WERE much better..... I WANT IT BACK! I HATE ROCK HIPPO FOR CLOSING IT DOWN!

I found this was actually a pretty fun game to play. This is a good amount of things to do but I find it's only good with your friends. The characters you have to play are pretty cool. Or as some would say, "KAIIWWAAAAIIIIIIIIIIIIIII" or something like that. There is definatly a grindy portion to the game, A pay to win portion, but it's not all bad of a game. I cannot stress enough if you like these kinds of games you should play it, but even if you do like these games this may not be for you. But what my opinion is mine, and you should have your own. Go give this game a try.

The game is riddled with hackers, servers are bad and I frequently am put in "Lag Limbo".
Its P2W and skill based but where Skill came overcome P2W,but P2W still prevails. I try to enjoy the game as much as possible for it's skill, but with server problems, hackers and "Lag Limbo", it just makes me hate the game more and more.
The P2W is simply "Gamble for something bad with a chance your money will end giving you something you want."
pretty much I hate with a gulity pleasure and even though its weeabo shooter sim, it can be fun once Rock Hippo fixes its servers, balances weapons, and finds a better anti-cheat system (X-TRAP RLY M8)

MicroVolts Surge WAS a fun online arena shooter, however playing matches has become extremely oversaturated with people purchasing so much Pay to Win Crap that all the fun is pretty much gone. Most of the time if you want something cool like a weapon, you're gonna have to pay for it in some way, and hell if you want to buy it with the in-game system of currency then you're out of luck because a lot of it's temporary. Much of the neat anime-inspired style and map design doesn't help the fact that this game heavily relies on purchasing items to gain the advantage.

I really loved this game, and it's fun to go back to and play a little bit but honestly there are much better shooters out there which provide much more fun. Want my reccomendation? Go play/buy the game Minimum

This game is terrible. Can't join a lobby or even adjust a setting before the game freezes. Can't join any lobby and there is only 1 to choose from anyway. The game freezes and kicks me out. Don't download this game.
