Meltdown is a really solid indie RPG twin stick shooter in a futuristic setting devoid of any story.

Some of the main features are VR support (the reason behind my purchase), 4 player co-op, and semi-randomly generated levels.

There are 3 resource types: XP which unlocks skills in a 3-branch tree, money and upgrade chips (weapon/equipment purchases/upgrades).

You can only carry 2 firearms and 1 melee weapon.

The gameplay is solid, and the controls are tight using an x360 controller.

I quite enjoyed the energetic music as well - fits the game well.

There is generally really nothing wrong with this game, but there is absolutely nothing new under the sun either. And there is too little visual variation in the maps. Some more enemy types, attack/movement options might prevent the 30 "campaign" levels from feeling as repetetive as they did.

The VR support for Oculus rift (DK2) is really solid, with large easily readable menu texts, and while it doesn't really immerse you (or attempts to), it definately heightens the sense of involvement and intensity. Only complaint is the zoom effect when someone levels up - it's too much in VR.

If you're just looking for a non-VR twinstick shooter, try the Halo Spartan Assault/Strike games instead which are similarly priced. But if RPG or VR ticks your boxes, then this is a no-brainer at the price.

Gotta say. Its the best $2.00 ive ever spent. It is worth more than what i payed. honestly it is a fantastic game. It has loads of room for improvment to come for sure!

It is a great patrty/ co-op game as well.

my only gripe is the later helmets interfear with wearing accesories. Would like something around this to be fixed.

But from the selection of early acess games. This is by far the best.



Completed the game With sometimes Co-op sometimes single player. Max presteige Lvl 55 acheived everything but two acheivments.

This game has potential but its gameplay is decent at best. My biggest issue with the game is:

-Too much grinding involve
-The levels start to feel repetitive, same enemies and environment
-Using the covering system doesn't really help or go well with the pace of the game

I still recommend it but only if theres a discount for it.
