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.

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!

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.

This falls under the curse of the multiplayer-only indie game scene, you'll never find someone online to play with not too long after the game is released. I don't know what else to say without any randoms to play with.

+ a lot of funny characters to play as,
+ many weapons to choose from,
+ I enjoyed every map in the game,
+ funny clothes,
+ nice game modes,
+ ppl still play this and they are mostly ok.
-------------------------------------------------------
- the game seems to be abandoned by devs,
- a lot of teamkillers,
- sometimes the game is so laggy that everyone has a ping like 300.

Anyway, I would recommend the game. It's cheap and really fun to play and if you have colleagues to play with there is even more fun ;-).

No one plays this game, but it's really fun.

There is no single player, and that's only a bad thing because unless you have your own friends, you wont be able to play.

However, if you DO have friends willing to play, this game gives you that great fun the way Super Smash bros does. You need at least 4 to have a good time, but you cna play with more than that. So if you and your buddies are tired of DOTA, this would be a great thing to kill some time with. During a sale you can get a pack of them for cheap. Do it, save the copies, and then one night when you got a handful of you on with nothing to do, hand them out and proceed to have fun.

Some people say this game is dead. It's not, but you should play it at certain hours. A part from that, the game is pure fun and epicness. The music is great and the graphics too. For me, it's the funniest online 2D game.

This game WAS great, but then was completely abandoned by the devs. Wish they kept updating, would probably still be playing to this day. Oh well, fun game if you find a few friends though.

Probably one of the coolest games of this genre. Unfortunately it is hard to find people to play with anymore... That aside, I would recommend!

NOTE: Get this game with friends because the community is dead.
Nobody plays anymore, so if you think it looks fun, wait for it to go on sale and buy it for you and a couple friends
if you buy it for just yourself and you dont have anyone to play with you will never actually play the game.
I think this game is wonderful and fun (maybe a bit unbalanced in some areas) and if the community hadnt died it would have been a must have, sadly it did and now we're left with what could have been amazing. its really sad, its kinda like a cheesy love story except nothing like that its a video game.

No players in servers. Game died a year ago; just after the first month from release. Devs, pls change this into free-to-play so we can see it alive again.

The Showdown Effect

A Game that had great potential


Visual: 8/10

The game has a very stylish art-style, that generally looks good. The only part of the games visuals I didn't enjoy was the characters, because they look like plastic. The game is succeeding to give you that 80's action feel, since they have their obligatory Terminator parody. I also need to point out that the menu literally looks like an 80's TV screen.


Sound: 7/10

Showdown has an explosive action theme song that really pumps you up for the action, but sadly there is no song like that once you enter a round. The sound effects are fine, but it's mostly guns firing so there isn't much to say about that.
The voice-acting is very funny since they do have that bootleg Terminator, which creates some funny moments when playing the game.


Gameplay: 7/10

The gameplay is fun and fast. It's a 8-player deathmatch game that lasts 5 minutes. Once you're done with those 5 minutes it transitions into a last man standing kind of thing (note: the last man standing is not the winner. The winner is the person with the highest amount of kills.) which changes the pacing slightly as you aren't all that willing to die.

There are some unlockable guns and characters, but you should be able to get everything by a couple of hours of gametime. I would've enjoyed more customization but they probably did this to keep the game balanced. All in all the gameplay is very enjoyable.


DLC: 8/10

The DLC in Showdown is kinda useless. The reason for this is that they are reskins of weapons, or hats. I enjoy this alot since it keeps the game fair and balanced.


Money/Time: 1/10

The game doesn't cost much and I enjoyed it very much, but the game is now dead. There is nobody online nowadays so just stay away from the game. It's a shame that the developers (spearhead studios, creators of Magicka.) updated the game once then left, and are now working on Magicka 2. Get Magicka 2 instead, you'll most likely have a better time there...
