Flip Wars entertains as soon as the panic-induced butt-stomping draws out your unawakened competitive spirit but soon falls flat as you realise there isn’t much breadth to the experience. Suited to quick burst multiplayer sessions every now and then, it’s harder to recommend to those looking for something that will keep them hooked for longer.
The game is fun but lacks any real depth.
There are some titles that have high replay value despite their simplicity, but Flip Wars is not one of them, as this is nothing but a simple mini-game turned full game. In other words, while this is definitely cheaper, better save that pizza money for Splatoon 2… or pizza.
At launch, Flip Wars was introduced with a short quantity of gameplay modes, and we had the feeling that it wasn't worth its price. After the update, the developers added a few modes, maps, and characters, which contributed to make the game more enjoyable but despite that, the price seems too high compared to the amount of contents.

My suggestion if you're interested is to wait until after it has gotten some updates. It's not like this is currently void of fun, but it surely needs a spicing up. As of right now, I can only recommend Flip Wars to those who play a lot in tabletop and TV modes with other people, this is where the game shined brightest for me.
Flip Wars' problem is that it has no depth whatsoever. That silly, simple, chaotic, and utterly pointless button masher that you had a quick laugh at when you play it for the first time really is all that's on offer.
Over Fence has an average game on their hands with Flip Wars. There is so much potential here for bigger and better things, but for the time being, it's fun and worthy of parties.
Although I hoped Flip Wars would turn out to be a fun online and party game when I first saw its footage, the title turned out to be a disappointment void of any real merit. The gameplay is clunky, content is slim, and power-ups do little to remedy the experience. The lack of a single-player mode and virtually nonexistent online make recommending this title even more. Ultimately, Flip Wars' release made my disappointed Nintendo published an unfinished game like it in the first place.
A solid base mechanic with potential and affordable price make Flip Wars an intriguing proposition for party game lovers. Its lack of content, however, reduce the mileage you might otherwise get from the game, especially in solo play. If you like to see a different take on Bomberman-style games and can round up folks to play with you, however, this budget title can still be worth flipping into.
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.
