Rocket League Sideswipe review – Is This Game Worth Playing?

Rocket League Sideswipe is officially landed on Appvn. So, let’s take a deep dive into the game, and see all the worthy features of it to become the best mobile game at the end of 2021.

Throughout the years, we have witnessed many failures of mobile games adapted from PC consoles. Either the final product changes too much of what made the original special, or it implements too many questionable monetization schemes that suck the fun right out of the game. That leads to a big suspicion about the quality of Rocket League Sideswipe. Fortunately, this game proves to be different from other adaptations.

What is Rocket League Sideswipe game?

If you’re unfamiliar with Rocket League Sideswipe, it’s a side-on interpretation of the popular Rocket League. Rather than playing football on 3D pitches, you will take on your opponents in a 2D environment, although the rules are still the same — score more goals than your opponent before the time runs out. You can either play 1v1 or 2v2 matches, depending on whether you prefer to go solo or enlist the help of a pal.

It promises intuitive touch-screen controls that allow for the same intense action as the PC and console versions, but now they’re specifically tailored for mobile. It’s not just control adjustments the developer has made either. The matches themselves will only last for a mere two minutes, which makes Sideswipe ideal for playing in short bursts.

Standout features of Rocket League Sideswipe

1. Controls

On the left side of the screen, you get a 360° touch screen joystick, which lets you control your car’s movement and direction (Up, down, left and right). On the right side, you get a boost and jump button. That’s pretty much it.

It’s really tough to get used to the controls of the game. I have been playing mobile games all my life, and still, it was pretty tough for me to get used to the controls of Rocket League Sideswipe. But on the other hand, I have seen some of the players doing crazy stuff, so maybe that’s something more of a personal preference.

The game does not have any customization options for the controls, which I think is a must-have feature, and Psyonix should consider adding it to the game.

2. In-App Purchases

Rocket League Sideswipe is a true free-to-play mobile game with no-nonsense. I really like the way Psyonix has monetized the game. There is a premium currency with which you can buy decorations for your car, but it won’t affect the performance. Furthermore, the game provides enough items as you progress for free as well.

3. Plenty of Customization Options

You can customize your tires, paint, skin, boosts, and even the explosion animation that plays out when you score.

4. Game Modes

Rocket League Sideswipe offers both offline and online modes. The offline mode is called ‘solo .’ There are three types of solo mode. They are Freeplay, Exhibition, and Tutorial. Freeplay is where you can practice alone. Meanwhile, in Exhibition, you get to play against a bot, and lastly, the tutorial obviously teaches you the basics of the game.

As for the online mode, it’s called ‘Competitive play .’ Again, there are three types of competitive play. They are Duel, Doubles, and Hoops. Duels is a 1v1 setup, Doubles pits you into a 2v2 match, and Hoops is also 2v2, but instead of car soccer, it’s basketball.

Rocket League Sideswipe is available now on the Appvn. It is a free-to-play game. Download now game now and enjoy!
