"The results are impressive. We can scan the whole scenes while moving the head, and we keep stopping at details we never noticed before, like those UI windows. We almost feel like we can touch them! The same goes for characters, you can't prevent to look at them at every possible angle."

Shufflepuck Cantina Deluxe


"Once upon a time, when Apple and Commodore were personal computer rivals, Brøderbund Software released a little game called Shufflepuck Café. If you played that game back in the day, prepare for an overload of nostalgic air hockey goodness. If this is your first trip to the Shufflepuck Cantina, well, nostalgia won’t do anything for you, but the air hockey goodness sure will!"
- VGBlogger.com

"Hop over to Steam and pick up your copy as soon as it unlocks. The game is loads of fun to play and works great whether you have 5 minutes or a whole afternoon!"

"It's an excellent surprise with a big life span. The game looks really nice too."

"To be clear, I loved Shufflepuck Cafe when it came bundled with my Amiga 500 in the late 80′s, and this hits all my nostalgia buttons without the “not as good as I remember” feelings."

"Shufflepuck Cantina Deluxe is highly recommended. This is a nice year-end surprise that a simple game of Air Hockey is something challenging with many special moves and content that never get the player bored."
86% - game4me.be

"Shufflepuck Cantina took the original and brought it up to 2013 standards. I’m sure Shufflepuck Cafe fans would have been more than happy with a straight remake but Agharta did a fantastic job of making a modern Shufflepuck game while retaining the spirit of the original."

Sufflepuck Cantina is a cute little casual game about air hockey simulation, ideal for playing in small doses. What it does it does perfectly with a smooth mouse response and clear and intuitive controls.

Long story short, you play as an astronaut stranded in a distant planet inhabited by a bunch of freaks obsessed with air hockey. In order to get them help you to fix your broken spaceship you need to make youself a name as an air jockey player and beat (a looot of times) the 13 opponents. You start with a basic mallet and puck and the 3 beginner opponents, and you must grind your way up to the rest of them, their special mallets and pucks and some other unblockables, such as concept art, pieces of background for the diffferent characters, etc. Each enemy has their own mallet and puck and a special move, but the concept of the game is always the same.

Some people have said it resembles Star Wars Tatooine cantina aesthetics, and it does indeed. There's even a "Twi'lek" girl and a guy cosplayed as Han Solo, and every alien is very Star Warsy, so if you like the saga then you'll probably find Sufflepuck Cantina attractive to the eye. Most defining trait is the grinding, which many people have complained about; there's no ingame purchases inherited from its former app game nature, yet you will need tons of ingame currency to buy everything, from access to more challenging enemies to new mallets and its upgrades. As there are only 13 enemies and the only mechanics in the game are the short, intense air hockey matches (no other minigames included), this may get repetitive after a while. You can, however, buy your classic coin doubler upgrade, which I recommend you to do first thing (there are a couple upgrades for the puck to give you money when it hits the table and the mallet).

Also the lack of multiplayer really damages a game like this one, which could use it to add some replayability and extra fun. However, the developers are considering to add it in the future if they get funding, and you can read about it in the Steam forums. I had this game on a bundle so I will definitely be investing a couple bucks :p

+ Cute design and characters
+ Addictive and tons of unlockable content
+ Polished and responsive controls and puck behavior

+/- Some people may find the grinding annoying, while others (like me) may find it catchy

- The concept gets repetitive quickly
- No multiplayer (although it could have it eventually)
- Some will find 10€ is a bit pricey due to lack of variety

After playing for 6 or 7 hours I say it's a good game, fun and with a fair amount of content, but it can get old quickly. If, like me, you are a sucker for casual games and achievement hunting, you will sure enjoy it. If you are looking for a more hardcore game, I would advice to avoid this one, specially at full price, as some will consider it to be a bit too much for what it offers; I had it in a bundle though, so I am more than happy with the value. I totally recommed it if you get it on sale and enjoy some good old casual gaming.

This game took me by surprise, it's really fun. Some people might know the term Shufflepuck as 'Air Hockey'. The only thing I am not enjoying about this game is the endless music (remix of the Star Wars Cantina tune).

An OK little game to remember the original game from the nineties with some flaws that cannot be overlooked.

Clearly designed originally as a free-to-play (an insame amount of challenges, in-game achievements requiring 50+ hours of gameplay and more than a thousand matches to win, different sort of currencies, XP, slot machine, etc...), these mechanisms only strenghten the impression of a lack of content.

Which is sad, because the grinding slowly kills a game that had good efforts put into it (there's decent writing, overall good controls, balanced AI). This should be a lesson to game designers: forcing the player to put more hours than he normally would have only makes him/her notice the little things that are wrong (repetitive sound design, aberrant mallet behaviour on some occasions, too many menus...).

If you are bent on 100%ing games, just don't buy this one, the time you will have to spend is not worth it. For the others who might enjoy a few arcade air hockey matches, you can spend a few bucks when the game is on sale.

It's air hockey. Don't expect anything else but air hockey. Anyway, it's air hockey in a great package. A lot of characters and plenty of additional options and features (mallets, pucks, achievements, missions, challenges, etc.) add surprising depth and immersiveness to this rather simple game. It adds unexpected complexity and addictiveness to a rather menial game. The graphics are also super nice for an air hockey game. Especially the NPCs are really nicely designed and come with distinct personalities which makes them quite likeable. Unfortunately the sounds are too repetitive and they may get annoying. If I had to hear one more "ohnonono" from Furry I would've probably broken the screen.

The worst thing about this game is the lack of multiplayer. I mean, come on, it's air hockey, imagine how cool multiplayer would have been! Leaderboards can never compensate. If it had multiplayer, it would've been a great game. Otherwise, it's just good.

This is a solid arcade title -- it looks nice, controls well, has basic but satisfing gameplay (it's air hockey) with a few twists like special moves or unlockable upgrades. On top of regular matches against AI opponents, there are challenges with special win conditions for variety. It's all very classic, as you can tell, but it's well-made.

I have gotten a solid 4-5 hours of enjoyment out of Shufflepuck Cantina Deluxe and would recommend it without reservation to anyone tempted by virtual air hockey/arcade game fans.

Fair warning: It seems like the progression curve is slow and built around the expectation that you'll play a lot (and I do mean a lot) of this game, which might frustrate the completionist in you if you have a mind to unlock all the equipment and every costume. None of it is required to have fun really, but you can tell that this game has roots in the mobile world just by how they stretched out content.

I do recommend the game if you NEVER played any air hockey or even shufflepuck game - in game or in real life (if you don't know air hockey, try it at least once, it is cool). I do recommend this game too if like me, you remember your teenage time playing Shufflepuck Cafe on Atari... good times. Now, I would not recommend this game just like that, because it is not that great. It is fine. Very repetitive (that's air hockey... better in real life with real friends), very grindy (win 15 times against him - good, now beat him 8 times without loosing - good, now you can duel the new opponent... who tells you to beat the previous one 10 times...), and the table is a TAD too small (actually, there is too much camera inclination), BUT the gameplay is really smooth, the different opponents moves are nice though as too simple as the original game, so, yeah, overall it is enough to pass the time if you buy it on sale.

A game of air hockey/shufflepuck/air puck; whatever you want to call it, based on a pseudo Star Wars like planet hence the name. Fast reactions count, very fun in short bursts. 6/10

It can be frustrating but it is also a lot of fun.

Shufflepuck Cantina is easy at the start, perhaps a little too easy, but it has charm. Once you get to the 2nd floor, the training mitts come off and you realize there is some challenge to this game after all.

The gameplay is deceptively simple. The controls boil down to moving your mouse and clicking your primary mouse button. However, each character has their own special skill, and each round includes its own distractions to overcome. The progression of this game is actually very addictive, and the only reason I wanted to quit playing was so I could go to sleep.

On that note, good night.

Okay, I have to say that whenever I make reviews I try REALLY hard to find a way to recommend the game or show it in a positive light.

So, first off, if you like air hockey games, then get this game. It can be very enjoyable and has a long life span. This life span, however, is allowed because of one critical feature.

It's all about the grind.

OMG the grind man. If you are like me, and used to grinding, then this should not be a problem.

I primarily have been playing this game for the cards so I can also unlock (the super insignificant chance of) booster pack drops. I have to admit, this is the first game that I have purchased and am seriously considering not playing to get all possible badges.

I do not like air hockey THIS much.

I've read reviews that this was originally an app game, and that makes sense because I've played other air hockey games for the touchscreen. That works REALLY well. I don't know if it's my mouse sensitivity (I play on 3200 DPI with +2 acceleration {whatever that means; it's REALLY sensitive}) or if I just really, really suck at this game, but the grinding for me is taking especially long. I don't know if I can do it.

Here's a taste of what you have to go through:

There are multiple floors in the cantina, each with new, harder opponents than the previous floor. On the first floor, there is a small alien dude who keeps periodically saying: nonononono, and I want to stab him so badly because it is so annoying. There is a dancer alien girl who I haven't played yet, and there is a robot bartender. Cool.

You play the bartender, and let's say you win 4 points to 2 (it is first to 4 on the first floor at least) in Duel mode. You get around 100 or so currency points.

A new puck costs 5000 points. A new mallet (the thing you hold) costs 5-15 thousand. Seriously. WTF.

Also, you can unlock biography codexes for each character, and after ALL the biographies of a character are unlocked, I'm guessing you unlock that character as a player(?). The tutorial explains that you will get their paddle and their unique skill. For example, the robo-bartender has a really annoying dodge shot skill where it will bank left or right and suddenly then go straight.

Did I mention that there are 19 (NINETEEN!) biographies for the stupid robot?!

Oh and did I also mention that all of the biographies (except the 1st one, I believe) cost 500 points?

That's at least 9000 points. OMFG.

If you are proficient in this game, it should go by pretty fast, I guess. If you arent, like me, then you will hate this game.

There is also a gambling feature that I feel is seriously trolling me. You unlock these gamble tokens that you can use to reveal face down cards, and the bonuses are nice, however, if you reveal a skull, you lose everything you've revealed (including the tokens you spent). I swear I have gone 2 consecutive prizes ONCE, every other time, the skull is second to be revealed.

I want to give this a recommendation, I really do. But I just can't, so this will be my first non-recommendation.

surprisingly addictive for such a small arcade title like it is, plus getting it so cheap really helped along with the initial decision, it's worth getting if you can catch it on sale but as it stands it has a very arcade type feel to it so $10 is a little spendy
