"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!"

"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!"

"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."

"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."

"All together Shufflepuck Cantina Deluxe lives up to the legacy of its predecessor in every way. It’s an easy to play game within a mostly well rounded gameworld and will have you playing for hours on end."

"Your opponents are varied and it takes time to learn how to defeat them while a steady stream of unlocks will keep you coming back for more. Whether you want to play for a few minutes or a few hours, Shufflepuck Cantina Deluxe is a good choice."

About the Game

After "accidentally" jumping your spaceship through a wormhole, you’ve crash landed onto this forsaken desert planet a billion kilometers from home. The only thing between you and the horizon is the seemingly endless dunes of sand, save for one strange, huge building. Inside, it appears to be an interstellar Casino where everyone plays air hockey for a living.

You’ll have to fight hard to grind down all your opponents until they are utterly defeated to earn the critical parts needed to repair your ship. Once you’ve obtained all the spaceship pieces you’ll have to defeat the owner of this insane Casino so you can go home.

Shufflepuck Cantina Deluxe is a great animated 3D air hockey game. The game is controlled via the computer’s mouse. You have to hit a hockey puck with the aim to knock the hockey puck past the opponent’s site (and to get the puck when the opponent knocks it to you). In Shufflepuck Cantina Deluxe you have a modern, colorfull design, 13 opponents on 5 floors (with different looking rooms), more than 40 gadgets and equipment and and and. This game is perfect if you just want to play a bit alone. The game saves itself so you have nothing to do when you want to quit the game. You can level your own character (about 200 levels!) and there are over 350 missions and 120 mini quests you can do. If you really want to collect all achievements and to do all quests you can spend much time on that game. I would buy it always again.

Well i saw this game and my first immpresion was "OH they made a new STAR WARS game set in the cantina on mos eisley about shufllepucks" (it was the dancer that tricked me).
Anyway i was wrong but someone on the development team must be a STAR WARS fan,i mean look at the dancer pure STAR WARS anyday and the same can be said of what a few of the others characters look like to.
Anyway i must say i love this game its such an easy game to get into but it will take a while to master it and get used to all the games little quirks.You start of having crashed into the desolate planet (and you completely wreck your ship) that the cantina is on and from there you proceed to the only building in sight which happens to be the cantina.To get of this rock you must play shufflepuck against the inhabitants of the cantina and win,therefore earning coin to buy better pucks and other equipment and in the process also earning medals and also the right to buy profile pages on the competitors.Now you need to buy all these to challenge the characters to a shufflepuck duel to earn their spaceship piece and therfore get back home to good old EARTH (think thats where you come from,never do you take your helmet of so anyone could be under there even good old ALF who knows).
The graphics are good for such a small download and so to is the music and the only thing that lets it down is the story-there isnt really one just to earn the spaceship parts and leave.
I like this game most because like most of my favorite games of late i just found the time passing by whilst playing and then going "OH IS IT THAT TIME ALLREADY" and it is just so addictive it has that one more go factor thet pulled me in.
Still i cant get STAR WARS out of my head even when i think of this game but never mind.
If you want a game that will slowly but surely creep under your skin with its addictivness then buy this game as HELL it did that to me.

Quite a fun little game. You are a space travler who gets dumped on some remote planet and must rebuild your damaged spacecraft. You accomplish this by playing many many games of what I would call air hockey. Tons of puck and mallet upgrades to purchase with crez ( in game currency). Plus all your opponents offer you several missions which unlock lots of urgrades and special shots you can make with the puck and mallets. Visuals in the game are very vibrant and colorful. Only played for a short while to get my card drops but I would recommend this to anyone looking for a casual game to play.

Shufflepuck Cantina Deluxe mixes the music and setting of the Star Wars cantina scenes and adds shufflepuck to it. And what do you know, it works surprisingly well.

What's there to tell about shufflepuck I hear you say ? Not much really. I think we all know how it works. But this game allows you to play it against aliens and by putting power-ups on the field to aid you or your opponent. Winnings allows you to level up which results in you gaining XP more often. There's also other stuff to collect and win like coins to buy biographies of characters or better pucks. You can also scratch tickets if you feel lucky and try to gain (more) XP and money that way. Completing certain challenges (i.e. buying 10 biographies) and mini-quests also reward you with XP and money.

There are many opponents to challenge, and several floors to unlock. The higher you go the more difficult your opponents will become. It actually becomes really challenging about halfway through. Wow.

The only downside to this game is that the money you earn after each successful game is just not enough. It literally takes hours before you're able to buy a puck or a set of biographies. That, and you'll be playing against the same opponents for tens of games. So it's also a variety issue really. Hopefully this gets fixed with a patch as I don't see a sequel appearing anytime soon (I mean, what more could they possibly add ?). Frustrating and it makes the game a little less fun to play.

Despite those issues Shufflepuck Cantina Deluxe is still a fun and worthy addition to anyone's collection and I'd definitely recommend it.

[Rating: 74/100]
