DiscStorm Multiplayer Update arrives next month!

We've got some exciting news to talk about today. DiscStorm is getting a major update! This should come as no surprise if you've followed our blog ove the last few months, however, after plenty of testing we're happy to announce that the DiscStorm Mulitplayer Update will be launching July 2016 on Steam. This update is packed full of features and we can't wait to get it into your hands. Here's what's in the patch:

New Game Modes



We're adding three new multiplayer modes, each introduces a new way to beat your friends. There's the strategic Safeguard where holding onto your disc is essential, the score based Capture the Flag mode where you need to be in the right place at the right time and the frantic Poison where you need to chase after the cure to the zombie outbreak.

Custom Multiplayer Matches



Fancy playing DiscStorm for more matches, want to only play a particular mode or on your favourite three arenas? The customisation menu lets your tweak all aspects of a multiplayer from how many rounds you need to win to whether voting or powerups are enabled.

Improved AI



We've vastly improved the AI in multiplayer, they have unique behaviours for each mode and they also have their own personalities. We feel this makes the AI mimic humans a lot better so they're not the superhumans that they currently are but still put up a challenge and can respond to different situations a lot better!

And much much more!

This isn't a comprehensive list of features and there's a whole bunch more content bundled away including:
  • Taunt animations to tease your friends
  • Voting menu in mutliplayer matches
  • Mouse support
  • A new system for unlocking character costumes
  • Plenty of bug fixes
  • One other little secret that you'll have to discover for yourselves

About This Game



Fast-paced and furious, DiscStorm is an arena combat game where split-second reactions are essential to dodge flying discs as they ricochet around at breakneck speed.

Meet up with your friends at home and challenge them to intense multiplayer deathmatches. If you want to really test your skills, then the single player adventure boasts diverse settings such as haunted mansions and pirate ships - all of which come with their own formidable enemies and epic boss fights.

Inspired by 90s console classics, DiscStorm evokes retro nostalgia with its upbeat chip-tune soundtrack and bold pixel-art visuals. Successfully progress through the vibrant environments and you'll not only earn achievements for your efforts, but also be rewarded with quirky new costumes for the cast of characters.




  • Fast-paced arena combat - Gameplay that's easy to pick up, but truly difficult to master: dodge and deflect flying discs as they ricochet around the arena at lightning speed.
  • Energetic local multiplayer - Invite friends over to battle. DiscStorm offers a variety of compelling game match types; fight it out in a classic first-to-ten deathmatch or strive to keep the crown in the hectic 'Regicide' mode.
  • Epic boss fights - Each arena brings its own unique play-style and enemies. Whether it be the laser-shooting Stone Golem in the jungle temple or the lava-spewing Fire Elemental of the volcano lair, exciting new challenges await you at every turn.
  • Striking retro art and music - the soundtrack fuses modern dance trends with retro chiptunes, whilst the artwork blends classic pixel art with high fidelity graphics.

A controller is highly recommended to play DiscStorm, a list of supported devices can be found HERE.

It's a fun game with great music. Gameplay is straight forward and within a few minutes you'll be jammin' out to the tunes and droppin' the smackdown on some zombie tushies.

Here is a little snippit of what to expect:

This game is great, its really fastpased makes you think quickly about your next move. I love the idea of throwing the discs. The bosses are challenging but simple which makes for a great game. Highly Recommend.

Upon further review I am not so excited about multiplayer. I tried it out vs the ai. It has a 3 star to win a match system where it swaps modes/maps each round. It randomly selects each, you cannot pick what mode/gametype you want. Game needs more options.

There is no story to DiscStorm, just arena after arena of disc throwing madness, testing the player's skills with what they've learned in the tutorial level that teaches you all the mechanics of the game. It's just up to you to use them properly, which means your experience with this game is ultimately determined by how good you are at picking up the controls. Learning how to dodge, deflect, dash and ricochet your discs off of walls and other objects is essential for learning how to play the game. It's fast paced gameplay so it's both fun and challenging, constantly keeping you on your toes as you throw your discs like some sort of Olympian. This game doesn't have any difficulty settings, it expects you to be an expert at the game as soon as you leave the tutorial level, and it shows by how much it tests you. You're put up against not only basic enemies that chase you all around the arena, but Disc throwing enemies, regenerating enemies that come back after you die and Jason Voorhees-looking individuals with swords. But those are only the grunts; when it comes to the bosses and the mini bosses, you're given a variety of creatures based on the level you're in. You're also given a selection of four characters that all have unique dialogue depending on the level they are in, which makes it worth it to play all of them at least once.

Totally solid fast paced gameplay

I really enjoy games that offer a fair challenge to overcome and the difficulty curve of DiskStorm is just right. The frantic 4-player game play is also a lot of fun to play with a bunch of friends. I would definitely recommend this to anyone that enjoys challenging gameplay and is also fond of the old SNES art style.

The concept of this game is perfect for me, I love arena battles and I also love frisbee! Merging two ideas together doesn't always work, but in this case it does.

https://youtu.be/Sjo2fC0YiiY

What I didn't realise going into DiscStorm was that there are a variety of different types of battle to be fought. You have standard deathmatch matches and also some really fun alternatives. You have one which you must make sure you're not the last player left holding the bomb (last person hit) or another with an arena with only one disc which will one-shot any player.

I played local co-op with a friend and it was ample fun. I can imagine three and four player matches would be equal or (most probably) even more fun! Playing the solo mode was fine but this game shines in multiplayer mode.

Everything ran smoothly and without glitches. I can't really make any complaints with DiscStorm. It's a solid arena battle game and absolutely perfect for couch play. No online yet, but hopefully in the future this will get added.

Highly recommended if you got buddies to play with locally.

In-depth 3 minute Review

Below the short informative review video, you'll also find a written review, should you prefer reading to listening.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_WG80Uj6Zg0
Graphics - The pixel aesthetics are crisp and allow you to easily identify different enemy types, borders of the arena and the all-important discs.

Sound - The sound design does the rest to polish up this game. Great music pushes you to new heights, crystal clear effects allow you the recognition of what is happening without necessarily seeing it on screen due to your focus lying elsewhere.

Gameplay - Your character is equipped with three discs, which he can throw, use to block and even catch mid-air when pressing the assigned button in a precise fashion. When depleted, your discs have to be collected on the ground, and you can meanwhile use a powerful dodge instead of a block. This simple gameplay can be easily learned, however takes a bit of time to master, exactly how good games are supposed to be designed. There are a multitude of enemy types, including one special stage-specific enemy. On top, every level has a mini boss as well as a final boss, each with unique mechanics. There is enough variety to keep you engaged for a couple of hours in terms of Singleplayer content. I personally really liked that the restart begins exactly at the beginning of the wave that destroyed you, subtracting score instead of forcing you to redo the whole stage again. A very calming game design choice, as restarting is basically free of frustration. This is also underlined by the tight controls. Every mistake clearly is your own fault for not dodging or blocking at the correct time.

Problems? - Really, the only gripe I could find in this fast-paced disc-throwing arena game, is the current lack of online multiplayer. However, I have been in contact with the developers, and was told that online multiplayer will be patched in during the upcoming month. As it stands, the multiplayer is currently local only. Nonetheless, the array of game modes, with a timed bomb, a reaper mode, some form of king of the hill, a death disc mode and whatnot, DiscStorm already shows a bunch of possibilities and surely is loads of fun with a bunch of friends.

VERDICT
If you don’t mind the missing online multiplayer and have friends around regularly, DiscStorm is most definitely worth a buy, for all others relying on online play, I would recommend waiting for the online multiplayer to be patched in. DiscStorm is a really fun game and really worth keeping an eye out for.

After 1 hour of playing the game I still haven't managed to kill the first boss!

Art- The Character designs and general overall look of the game is absolutely beautiful.

Bugs - Haven't noticed any bugs yet, the one thing I would say which itsn't necersarilly a bug is that during the first boss fight it can be difficult to reclaim your discs when adds are up

Sound - The Soundtrack of the game is beautiful and well worth the extra price, It's been in my head since i bought this game!

Gameplay - Overall the gameplay is very fun! I play on mouse and keyboard but I imagine that it'll be even more fun to play on a controller.

I look forward to the possibility of Online Co-Op
Well done all!

DiscStorm is a fast action paced game which will have you flinging frisbee's like it's going out fo fashion. The game play is fast and furious, and the single player campaign is hard. This is a game where you will start off bad, but the mechanics are simple enough that you'll want to get good at it! The soundtrack is simply amazing and the art style is nostalgic, all culminating in an amazing experience.

Fast! Frantic! Fun! FZombies! The Single Player campaign is a silly little thing that oozes humour and charm and does an excellent job of keeping you entertained while slowly cranking up the difficulty and teaching you to be a better player as you deal with new mechanics and ever more impressive boss monsters, however the multiplayer is where it really shines.

In multiplayer Discstorm is a game that feels very similar to old classic Bomberman: getting 4 friends together to hurl abuse and discs at each other in equal measure I can already tell that this will become a firm favourite at parties! With 10 different stages and goodness knows how many modes you can keep on going all night until someone emerges the clear victor!

Discstorm is one of those games that is easy to pick up but difficult to master, with impressive trick shots possible (and even rewarded with the odd achievement) and unique mechanics on each stage to utilise you will get out as much as you put in. All in all I highly recommend sitting down with some friends and starting some friendly rivalries.

Awesome soundtrack, incredibly stylish game.

In terms of gameplay, it's basically a twin-stick shooter which is naturally best enjoyed with a gamepad. There looks to be (IMO) a lot of replayability in terms of mastery of the levels. Very reminiscent of Towerfall, another game I loved.

I've made it through the first 3 worlds so far, really looking forward to more of the single player campaign and trying out the local multiplayer.

Can't recommend buying the version with the OST enough if you like electronica/dubstep!

DiscStorm has just hit Steam for PC & Mac from Mastertronic and XMPT Games. After a few teething issues getting into the game, which were quickly sorted out by the extremely impressive response time from the XMPT Games, I stepped into this battle arena having only caught glimpses of a few screenshots beforehand.

DiscStorm attempts to bring an 8-bit Sega Master System/NES feel to its graphics and it achieves this goal extremely well. I could believe that once again I was sat – near thirty plus years back – in front of my television playing Smash TV with Mario like toons, though admittedly DiscStorm is nowhere near as violent as Smash TV, as here we’re throwing lethal Frisbee’s in this arena.

I’d advise you to take a few moments and jump into the practice Dojo just to get a feel on the controls and movement of the game, as all be it appears to be easy it can be quite tricky and frustrating. The frustrating element I believe – for myself – lies in the fact I am using a mouse and keyboard and the first screen you meet on DiscStorm in recommends you play this game with a Gamepad, which I don’t; this I believe will hinder the average player.

The single player mode is a series of mobs fights and you can easily path these mobs and bunch them up, bringing them down with one nice throw. As you pass checkpoint your progress is saved and if you do die you return to said checkpoint, leaving the game however doesn’t save your progress within the level so you will have to grind through that level again; unless of course you completed the entire level. Something I found a bit cruel was the lack of health regens that were dropped, after you first encounter with a mid-level boss you’re given one energy bubble back, but you were then expected to proceed through the next round on a heavily depleted life force.

The multiplayer mode is unfortunately only local multiplayer, so there is currently no chance of joining up with three other random’s around the globe to lob discs at their heads. You can set up a game against bots if you – like me – have no friends, this then immediately shows how hectic the game can become with three other people playing and you realise you need some more training at this game.

The music keeps faithfully in line with the appearance of the game, you would believe that this game has been pulled from a cupboard back in the mid-1980’s. The developers certainly have their hearts firmly planted in the era of the Sega Master Syst...

Has all the characteristics of the classic nintendo games of my childhood, while still being unique (and surprisingly challenging).

Would recommend :)

It seems so simple, throw some discs around and dodge some enemies. After spending 3 hours trying to finish the first level in the campaign I had to give up and take a break. I am clearly not as skilled as I assumed I was, I needed some time to re-eveluate life choices and check where I went wrong. This game is a very entertaining challenge for me, I'm hooked on it and picking it right back up after I finish writing this review!

The gameplay is very smooth. I'm personally playing using keyboard and mouse but I really should get myself a controller for this. The art and music are very well done, and they blend in perfectly to add to that all-important gameplay, and really help to stay motivated.

Also, I can't wait to get some friends round and test the multiplayer on this, I foresee some very interesting chaos!
