Critic Reviews for Flip Wars
Flip Wars is in some ways less fleshed out than the demo for Fusion Frenzy. Almost every feature, from the blocked out local mode to the disappointing "My Room" option (that's less of a room and more like a statistic menu), is a half measure. Maybe Over Fence can add to what they've built with a sequel, a series of free updates, or even a re-launch (which has been done in the very same party space). Until that happens, don't worry about missing out.
It's perhaps stepping on Super Bomberman R's toes at a fraction of the price, but Flip Wars scratches that multiplayer itch and is an absolute blast to play locally. There are currently some kinks to iron out, particularly with online matchmaking to fully use all the player slots, but with updates a possibility it's certainly one to keep an eye on to see how things develop.
Flip Wars has (almost) all the right ingredients to be a fun and recommendable party game: thanks to its solid gameplay and clear positive influences, this is a game that can bring some intense local multiplayer moments. Sadly its online multiplayer component falls way short of expectations and what could be one of the game's best elements turns out to be its biggest weakness.
