Holodrive is a fast-paced collectable 2D multiplayer shooter which went through many different stages before it got to what it is today. First it was found on Miniclip as a free online browser game called Project Tilt, after that it came out as a purchasable title, right before it became free-to-play but continued being in Early Access. The time has passed and we’re certain it’s stuck there, but we love it either way.
Weapons are varied and feel good to use. The ones that seem OP at first can be easily countered by other weapons however there are some weapon options that will be easier and deadlier to use as a newbie. The roster consists of classic flavors, from the Rocket Launcher to the Rail-gun-esque sniper rifle.
Everyone has a stock of 7 weapon slots to choose from mid game and additional alternatives to each slot can be unlocked through unboxing loot boxes you get every level-up. Additionally, an alternative weapon for a single slot will be available for free for a period of time, kinda like the weekly roster in LoL, so you’ll never have a lack of toys to play with.
However, the issues with a game as new as this is the lack of players, and consequently, the lack of servers in regions other than Europe and the Americas. Hopefully with enough marketing and exposure, this game can come into the mainstream and attract new players.
Overall, Holodrive is fun to play with friends but it lacks the playerbase to actually be successful. For the side-scrolling shooting genre, it’s one of the must-play titles, however, don’t invest more time into being better since you won’t be able to find proper matches.
