Super Rocket Shootout
Top Critic Average
Super Rocket Shootout brings an unlikely mix of 2D platforms with fighting action inspired by a familiar Nintendo series and it works well enough. Its plot is full of humour, the lifespan may be short but it's captivating and the multiplayer clearly stands out. Where Super Rocket Shootout ends up disappointing is in its too long and mandatory tutorial and on the lack of any online multiplayer functionalities.

Oddly Shaped Pixels did a fantastic job with Super Rocket Shootout.
Super Rocket Shootout is a bit short on single-player content, but what it offers for the lone rocket-strapping, shotgun-wielding player is a welcome addition to what is, at its core, an excellent party game package. As such, if you happen to have one to three friends available feel free to bump that final review score by one. The over-the-top insane action and laughs you will get with your friends more than justifies it.
The simplicity of Super Rocket Shootout cannot be understated. It's a good ‘ol jump in and have fun sort of situation with the gameplay. It tosses in some goodies here and there for variety, but ultimately it just wants you to have quick bouts of fun. That's a concept I grew up with in the arcade days of gaming and this is a concept that works for me with Super Rocket Shootout. That doesn't mean that I don't believe it can't be more, and it should, but as it stands it's fun. That's why you play games, folks, for the ‘fun'.
Super Rocket Shootout may not be a deep experience for those looking for a single-player distraction, but its action-packed multiplayer and jetpack-centered gameplay is well enough to keep your attention.
This kind of game is perfect to kill some time with friends without worrying about spending hours on mastering different techniques. Overall, Super Rocket Shootout offers a frantic and fun fighting experience that anyone can pick up and play. With captivating visuals and simple yet fun gameplay, this is not one to glance over.
Overall, if you’re looking for something fast and fun to play with your friends Super Rocket Shootout can be a lot of fun. While it has a few quirks, and perhaps has nuance most people will likely throw away in the heat of battle, the variety in stages and options to tune the battle settings are a value add that’s appreciated. Pick your character, grab some items, and commence the shooting of faces and other body parts!
If you don’t happen to be a billy no mates, then Super Rocket Shootout is a buzz to play in small bursts. It’s the sort of game you will itch to stick on for 10 minutes when you have enough friends over to fill the slots. It may be light on single player content, but it’s a game that’s simple enough to get to grips with, fun enough to have a laugh with, and cheap enough to buy for these sort of occasions. Just remember to beat the Story Mode first. Overwise you will be very limited on your gameplay options.
