The Showdown Effect é um jogo de ação PVP em que os jogadores são jogados em um cenário que serve de arena para o confronto. O jogo é exclusivamente multiplayer e como não anda muito movimentado, achar partidas é o seu maior problema.

São vários estilos de jogo, mas só fui capaz de achar partidas no deathmatch, modo em que é cada um por si, vencendo quem conseguir matar mais gente.

A jogabilidade é bem prática e dinâmica, sendo que no início os controles podem parecer meio confusos, mas basta jogar algumas partidas para que o jogador pegue jeito. Uma coisa ruim neste ponto é que não há suporte para controle, mas tão somente a mouse/teclado.

O jogo conta com vários personagens jogáveis inspirados em protagonistas de diferentes filmes das décadas passadas, sendo que cada um conta com uma habilidade especial única e a capacidade de portar duas armas, que ficam a critério do jogador.

Os cenários são muito bem feitos e permitem interação em várias partes como elevadores, alçapões, armas brancas e até mesmo armas improvisadas espalhadas pelo cenário, cada uma com uma função e modo de usar diferente. Há também interação com o fogo, água, janelas de vidro e até mesmo buracos que podem ser usados para emboscar inimigos. Além disso o jogo traz uma loja onde é possível comprar roupas, armas e outras utilidades para o personagem.

De modo geral, podemos dizer que Showdown Effect é um jogo muito divertido e bem polido mas infelizmente está meio esquecido... Há pouquíssimas salas nos servidores e é bem complicado achar partidas para jogar. Assim sendo, mesmo sendo um título de qualidade, está condenado a morte. BOM (7/10).

Probably, the most profound and sensitive depiction of the internal struggle of mental patient the video-game world has seen till this day. A person of unknown identity loses control of his memories and sensual abilities and falls into a deep comatose where the memories of his childhood 90s action movies take on a whole new role. The epileptic imagery in the intro might suggest a series of seizures within the temporal lobes of the brain or even the visual cortex over exiting his visual senses making him “see” a combination of memories and hallucinations instead of detecting what surrounds him like with. It is also possible the disturbed visions and colorful memories are the results of the growth of a highly invasive and malignant tumor in the temporal lobes. The case could be similar to Dr. Oliver Sacks’ case of “the passage to India”, where a young girl could vividly see long lost memories of the India of her past after a malignant tumor had grown inside her brain. However the cause of the brain damage to the temporal lobes causing the memories to reemerge are not important, what is to be noted is that these distorted visions of the past brings a certain comfort to the patient. The minds tend to like to compensate for lacks with other things. So the patient while not remembering the exact names of his childhood heroes, his brain renamed them in a way that would sound soothing to him. The struggle lies between recognizing that the visions are mere hallucinations and to face a cold reality of pain or indulge in the fantasy dream world his mind created for him to make him feel happy, like a child again. The visions intermingled with the dreams of a possible comatose has somewhat of a Jungian feel to it. The many characters and objects of his past somehow symbolize many of the figures in his life that he enjoyed the presence of. The characters ad objects are in some way his Jungian dream archetypes. Hailey is the archetype of the child representing his innocence, Thelma his desire to become a hero and achieve glory like his role models, Lance as the father figure he always wished for, Shur foo as the sage etc. Being among his dream archetypes and experiencing a sense a control and belonging pulls him constantly further into his comatose. Eventually, just like Alexander Luria’s “man with a shattered world” , he couldn’t distinguish memories and hallucination and the dreams would repeat themselves over and over again with the same characters his mind created.
The brilliance in this game lies in the fact that it can make us feel the torment of the patient, how such a playful and funny and conforting game could seem more interesting than reality but details such as the Jungian archetypes and the visual and auditif seizures remind us that what can be seen is but a stew illusions. And at that time we can feel the pain the patient feels to be forever stuck in this looping fantasy world and that he will probably never see the “real” world ever again. The pain, the feels.

Bravo arrowhead.

Played 300 hours of it. It's my favorite game, not one of my favorite games my favorite game! I highly recommend it to anyone, but be warned the game is hard to learn have a lot of pros that can kill you just by thinking about it and besides those there is hardly any community left. The devs have abandoned the game long ago and it still have a lot of bugs. It have some huge lag problems and there is many crashes. The game is also peer to peer, so no dedicated servers. There are still some community organised events and there is a lot of people willing to help newer players. I personally just like crushing my friends again and again. ::D

This game would be PERFECT for what its supposed to be but it had 2 fatal flaws
---Its multiplayer and lack of subtution
---Almost no dev support after this game was made
For the people that like ''forbidden fruits'' or mixed review games go get it or if you have friends that already own/play this game and will play this game with you by all means go get it,
Otherwise you should pass. I got it from a humble bundle so if you can score this game for a dollar and buy some extra copies to hand out you will have a blast!

The game isn't bad but the connection and the dead community is the problem. It is a halrious game where toy can pick up alomst everything in every map, sad that the community is really dead. Wondering why this got no attention and there are on patches for this.

This game is a lot of fun bad it's almost imposible to find a game. If it suddenly becomes popular buy it,you won't regret it, but sadly it's almost empty so I can't recommended it.

Really fun game that sadly just didn't have the right developers. The payment model is garbage with a cash shop containing just about all the cosmetic items for 1-5 USD. There's only six maps, and the ranking/levelup system is pretty much cosmetic.

The game has some hilariously fun melee and run & gun shooting. It's a blast to run backwards shooting luring someone into the edge of the map, only to jump off the wall, switch to a katana, then slice them in half. There's some small balancing issues, but the game is tweaked very very well overall.

If you can get the game for cheap it's very much worth the money. Though you might want to have some friends to play with since the community is dead. Most of the stragglers are pro players who have learned every exploit and trick in the book and it just isn't fun to get stomped without learning what they did.

this is truly a great and sadly "empty" game, allmost noone plays anymore.
i feel like a child at x-mas every time someone has set up a server so i can enjoy a good thrashing.(mostly recieved, hehe)
for my account i have experienced a handful of crashes but it is the gameplay makes it up ( personal opinion)

id give it a 9.5/10. but with the lack of players its only 5/10

PLAYERS COME BACK!!!!

This game is less populated than 'Death Alley'!

Without any friends this game is totally unplayable, because there aint any players or bots to play against, and therefore no servers.

This game isn't worth one penny, well yea, if you like the theme song.

Showdown effect is a great game but sadly, The lack of single player and the lack of active players made the game unejoyable. Despite being a great game, Missing features have killed the game. I wouldn't recommend buying it anymore.

Online only and very few players anymore. The ones that do play are well, let's just say they're not the type you want to play with. Not even worth the 1000 gems I spent on it.

0 Players whatsoever. No single player. It's a shame, really, as the tutorial where you kill a few non-moving dummies makes the game feel very smooth and good. Do not buy this unless you have 3+ friends to play with!

It's a pity... It could have been a really fun game to play, but there is a problem: Is a multiplayer game, with almost no players or servers, so not very fun...
