Battle for control of the galaxies in this frantic multiplayer action game straight out of a 1980s space anime! Blast shots, dodge energy beams, and deflect projectiles as you race your tram into the opposing team’s base! Grab the capsule to capture the galaxy before your enemy captures theirs!

Capsule Force (4)

Capsule Force is a really smart little game. I started off playing the solo mode which is good but man it will test your patience as you try and beat the level faster and faster, Learning everything in the level. VS mode is where the game opens up and elevates itself in so many ways. The whole idea of having to not only kill your friends, But also get on your platform and protect your position, Its so much to take in! In short it is well worth buying for its local multiplayer and it is a solid single player but you could easily tire of it. A must buy for local play!

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
