Beachball Busters Update

This update spend a long time coming. As evidenced by a beachball in a winter update. Try the new ball type out under ‘ball type’ in the character select options dropdown. Aside from gameplay tweaks, we focussed our attention to connectivity issues players have had when playing online and rematching. Despite being inherently hard to pinpoint, we were able to solve various problems.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1jr-gs8CqCw

Next, let’s go through some of the changes.

Spectator mode
You can now join a game lobby and be a spectator. If the lobby is already full with 4 players you will be automatically assigned to a spectator spot. As a spectator you can watch the match and won’t experience any lag which is ideal for streaming matches and tournaments.

Flashing effects
If you've ever been bothered by the white or black flashes during gameplay or are sensitive to such effects, there is now an option to turn them off in the Game options.

Scaling parry knockback
This is a big chance for higher level play. The knockback duration after being parried is now linked to the speed (and therefore hitpause) of the ball. This should mean no more guaranteed parry K.O’s on lower speeds, making matches reach higher speeds on average. On lower speeds, parry victims will have time to take a swing and the parry initiator can choose to aim towards or away from his or her target.

Clashing limited to facing
You can now only clash with attacks oriented towards you. Clashing was a bit too random and not fun enough to make up for it. This should stop the more odd-looking cases of clashing.

#FreeCorpseJuggling
The hard limit of 5 corpse hits has been removed. However, once the ball is in play in the next burst, active corpses can not be hit anymore and energy is reset. Also, corpse hurtboxes have been scaled down a bit to make more sense visually.

Holiday modifications
The holiday modifications are back! We also added a christmas tree to Room 21 and gave Candyman a nice christmas hat. For all your safety we removed the slippery ice physics in the Abandoned Pool. If you’re reading this you’ll most likely own a copy of the game but if you have some friends or family who, for some reason, don’t own the game there is always the holiday sale. 66% OFF! You can get a 4-pack for the prize of one copy. Ridiculous.

Changelog
– Added spectator mode
– Added beachball ball type, unlocked by default
– Corpse hurtbox size is reduced by 25%.
– Dynamic parry knockback, except for serves
– Corpses can now be hit until the ball is fully returned in play
– All player energy is reset at the reactivation of the ball now
– Swing clashes and bunt clashes now only happen when facing each other
– Fixed screen shake interrupting/overlapping which caused long shakes to suddenly stop
- Added an option to disable flashing effects
– Moved extra impact effect to speeds over 50
– Taunt resets the ball in training mode
– Added a bunt and a taunt to a certain character
– Fixed corpses freezing on special activation of a certain character
– Added an effect on a certain character’s special
– Dice can now also superjump by holding up
– Dice UI graphics tweaked
– Raptor special hold doesn’t default to his smash angle anymore
– Fixed CPU looking to the right after a burst
– Fixed CPU not respecting parries
– Fixed the boombox hitpause meter ignoring the parry hit

Enjoy!

Best wishes from the whole team. See you again in 2016!

Honestly a great game that I didn't think I'd stick to for so long, even though 80% of my playtime was spent vs North American Players the community was willing to accept me and tolerate as much of my lag.... as they could (I'm Antarct---- AUstralian) :D:

Great Game 9/10, could use some better palettes and have a tutorial with parrying

If you're willing to treat this as more than a party game, Lethal League has great depth and offers the potential for insane rallies far beyond the scope of ballspeed :D: with a great community to boot (just join the LL hub chat)

For any Australian owners or to be owners out there looking to play at green ping, feel free to add me and ask for a game, I'd be more than happy to show u the ropes or just have some good games :D:

Are you throwing a party? Yes? Buy this game, beat everyone, have no friends.
Are you a 78 year old woman living in New York? Yes? Buy this game, beat everyone, acquire friends, beat them too, lose those friends.
Are you dead inside? yes? Buy this game, beat everyone, sell your kidney on the black market, save someone's life, regain your soul, acquire friends due to the regaining of your soul, beat them too, lose all your friends.

All in all cat litter is a bad air freshener and Santa Claus is the leader of the illuminati.

HISTORY

Released in August 2014 and developed by Team Reptile and based off the flash game prototype bearing the same name, it’s Lethal League!
As of this review the game is on version 1.07.12

STORY AND WHAT YOU DO

In Lethal League with no real context or story, you play as up to 6 different playable characters who face off against each other in an arena in up 4 players at once, the goal simply being to hit the ball at one another to knock them out.

With each consecutive hit to the ball, it gains speed, which can make things very interesting, very fast.

The game also has a number of different modes from online, to versus, to an extra menu with different things such as a tutorial, training mode, as well as the challenge mode which basically acts as the core single player aspect to the game itself.



THE GOOD
-Quick and easy to pick up and play gameplay
-Addicting
-Different game modes and options to choose from
-Competitive and great multiplayer

Right off the BAT pun intended, one of the best aspects to Lethal League is the pick up and play nature of the game itself, it’s easy to learn and you’ll be smashing your opponents in no time flat, the game features an easy to learn tutorial to help new comers out, but the concept itself is pretty easy to wrap your head around.

It’s also extremely addicting, the first time me and my friends started playing this together we couldn’t stop, the quick matches and nature of the game itself lends to the addiction factor big time and it works beautifully.

The gameplay itself is fairly unique, almost reminding of pong on steroids with a gorgeous art style and blazing soundtrack to boast its intensity, the game is easy to play, but definitely takes some serious skill and good timing to master it.

But easily the BEST aspect to Lethal League is the online multiplayer, whether you’re in a team or free for all, Lethal League truly shines when you’re pitted against your friends as you battle it out and make the ball reach absolute insane levels of speed.

You’ve also got access to a variety of different game options if you’re hosting, from changing the speed of the ball itself when you hit it, to a big ball mode, team versus matches, free for all, and a mode where you basically have to hit the opposing team’s target at each end of the map to gain points.

The character roster as well all have their own unique abilities as well to mix things up, and you unlock different skins for them as you progress the game and earn “experience” allowing you to level up and unlock the different skins for them and overall really adds to the addictive nature and replayability of the game.

Over all, we had TONS of fun playing this for hours on end and is easily one of the best competitive games I’ve played in recent memory.



THE BAD
-Few core game modes to choose from (not much content) *Minor*

Honestly I don’t have much to talk about here, Lethal League does what it does very well, I had no major issues or never felt something was unfair or over powered and the game is very well balanced.

Probably the only issue I have is the lack of content, despite just talking about the different game modes to choose from, Lethal League outside of what I mentioned doesn’t offer much for core game modes.

If you’re looking for some beefy single player content, you won’t really find it here, sure you’ve got a versus mode where you can pit yourself against the PC at different difficulty settings, as well as a challenge mode that you can beat with each character to gain some achievements but honestly this felt nowhere near as compelling or interesting as the multiplayer.

As for the multiplayer, once you’ve played as each specific character, and played the different maps and fiddled around with the match settings a bit, you’ve pretty much seen everything this game has to offer you.
But to be honest, this is all pretty minor and I can easily see myself coming back to play this.



THE UGLY
-Not graphically impressive, it’s quite literally based off a flash game after all
-What it lacks in graphical fidelity it more than makes up for it in art style
-Amazing soundtrack
-Odd game crash during multiplayer

Where we discuss the graphics, soundtrack, and technical aspect of the game.
Lethal League won’t wow you in the sense with amazing textures and particle effects like some games might, which is obvious considering the game looks like something you could find on Newgrounds.

But what it will wow you with is the fabulous art style it boasts, from the different scenic backgrounds, to the character models and general presentation, what Lethal League lacks in big budget impressive graphics, it more than makes up for in its amazing art style and presentation.
And one thing that really adds to this is the AMAZING soundtrack, this is easily one of the best sound tracks I’ve listened to in a game in a long time, the art style and soundtrack over all give me almost a Jet Set Radio vibe, and I love it.

However, not everything is perfect, we did have our fair number of freezing issues during online matches, as well as the odd game crash or two in my 5 or so hours I’ve spent with Lethal League, but overall the gameplay itself was bug free during our experience and most of the crashes and freezing were during the online match making.



FINAL THOUGHTS

As I said earlier this is probably the most fun I’ve had yet so far with any indie game and I highly recommend you give Lethal League a try if you’ve got some friends looking for a fun, unique, and competitive game, despite some minor technical issues we had, playing this was an absolute blast.

SUMMARY: Its like smash and pong on crack. Very fun to play with friends or on local co-op. Gets more and more intense as the round goes on and both parties are screaming their asses off as the balls pierces the fabric of the earth

EXPLENATION: Its a fighting game where the player chooses their select character each with its own special ability that is more or less balanced. The object of the game is to hit a small ball back and forth, changing its colour to the player that touched it last, if a player who is not the same colour touches the ball (as in not hit it) they die and lose a life, zero lifes left and the player is eliminated. Now heres the kicker, as the ball gets hit more and more, it gains more and more speed, extreme amounts of speed one could say and the colours of the game starts changing to match the intensity and the speed that the ball is going at. All while a kickass soundtrack plays in the background. Definetly a fun game although I wish more people played online :(

Review in English/Spanish
Análisis en Inglés y Español:

English:
Fun game with unique art style and a pimping soundtrack, gameplay is simple but addictive yet I can’t fully recommend it. Lethal League focus is on multiplayer but it's somewhat dead as finding a match can be problematic, only after looking for people in the forum or chat was I able to play online so bear that in mind.

The game also has a single player mode but it's pretty short.

Español:
Juego corto y entretenido con un estilo visual único y una banda sonora bastante guapa, es algo simple pero altamente adictivo. Desafortunadamente no puedo recomendarlo por completo pues Lethal League se enfoca principalmente en el multiplayer el cual parece estar algo muerto, en varias ocasiones estuve buscando una partida y no fue posible jugar en linea hasta que busque por otros medios (foros, chat) y eso señores, es una patada inmensa en las bolas.

En definitiva, un buen juego mas no lo compraría a menos que tuviese amigos con los cuales hacer co-op.
