MORE INFO


Varion relies on a simple yet genuine key idea: to destroy his opponents, the player must use bounce shots (direct shots only stunning them), by taking advantage of an ever-changing environment. Ammo is limited, and must be reloaded by moving, in a dynamo-like principle, preventing players from camping.
Besides over-simplified dual-stick controls providing easy handling for any type of player, Varion offers advanced features such as the Dash move, counterattack, special actions and various powerups allowing skilled players to develop combat techniques based on quick reflexes, terrain analysis and gameplay mastering.

The Battle and Tournament modes are also enriched with a modular match configuration tool, offering numerous rules and options which will utterly change the battles' stake and experience. Besides usual presets, players can set their own fine tunings and create totally customized battles.
Finally, a solo/co-op Challenge mode allows players to face hordes of increasingly dangerous bots in order to unlock new environments, sharpen their skills and beat their hi-scores.
