Early Access Game

Get instant access and start playing; get involved with this game as it develops.

Note: This Early Access game is not complete and may or may not change further. If you are not excited to play this game in its current state, then you should wait to see if the game progresses further in development. Learn more

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We need to refine the online matchmaking, balance characters, and add more maps before we can call it a complete game. We need more feedback to do those things, so we’re doing Early Access.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Hopefully 6 months at most. We have a development plan on our site that lists what features we want to implement before release, and a tentative schedule.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“We will be adding more maps, want to get character balance in a good spot before the full release, and take care of any bugs that are discovered. We will be making some tweaks to visual effects as well. Check out the development plan for more detail.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“You can expect a fully playable game. The game is in a polished state, and the networked multiplayer runs very smoothly. The online matchmaking system is not yet refined.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“No, we won't be altering the price on the full release.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Talk to us on the Steam forums or on our Discord to give us feedback about bugs, thoughts on balance, and content/features you’d like to see in the future. All of these things will be heavily community-influenced, if you guys make sure to give us your feedback. You can also follow @PixelvexDev on twitter to see screenshots/info about development.”

Patch Notes - V0.5

Content
  • added new arena: Cyber City! The special mode on this map is a 'tug of war' sort of scenario, where you push the centerline towards the other player's side. This map is just for local play at the moment, but the next patch (a couple of weeks from now) will allow all maps to be played online, so look forward to that!

Balance
  • Let Max melee his own bubbles to give them velocity
  • changed Zandra's ball damage power from .8 to .5
  • increased Zandra's Whipslash cooldown from 1s to 2s
  • increased Zandra's Cyberslash cooldown from 1s to 2.5s
  • increased Zandra's Whirlwind cooldown from 1s to 2.5s

Zandra had a near-infinite combo in her kit, and was honestly destroying everybody else. Hopefully this makes her a little more reasonable.

About This Game


Metagalactic Blitz gives you that euphoric feeling of hurling dodgeballs, but adds the sci-fi weapons you wish you had in gym class! Powershot, reflect, dash, and blast your way to the top in this competitive arena game.




  • Deep dodgeball mechanics that encourage strategic gameplay
  • 9+ characters with entirely different playstyles
  • 1v1 online multiplayer
  • Online ranked matchmaking
  • 1-4 player local multiplayer
  • Original soundtrack by 8 Bit Cypher





Zomborg is a slow bruiser, excelling at guarding the middle and soaking up damage.


Lt. Justice has fantastic tools for overwhelming, constantly hurling his boomerang shield and backing you into a gravity bomb to set up for a kill.


Maxameleon gains the advantage slowly but surely. He can negate attacks while outliving his opponent as they weaken from his poison.


To master Zandra, perfect spacing is a must. The tip of her sword is especially deadly; swift and accurate combos allow Zandra to dominate the arena.

Discover more characters in game.



Metagalactic Blitz is a top-down physics based fighting game. Everyone shares some main dodgeball mechanics (throwing, dashing, and reflecting) and each character also has 3 powerful abilities unique to them.

Throwing


Dashing/Catching


Reflecting


Zomborg will be our example for abilities. He's a slow bruiser with an arm cannon. If his opponent is close, he can fire a shotgun to rack up damage.


Or, he can combo with his magnet pull for a point blank shotgun.


He can use these tools to zone the other player, by guarding the dodgeballs to gain the advantage.


If you didn't catch that, abilities require 1 power to use, which is gained from picking up a dodgeball. The balls are central to offense.

If his opponent is good at staying out of range, Zomborg can utilize his laser that charges passively over time to root them out.


As more damage is dealt, players are knocked back farther. Knocking them off the stage will eliminate them.
