Beta testing impressions:

Now that Hoplite has hit the spotlight, I need a new undiscovered gem to mention every opportunity I get - wasn't expecting it to be a game that isn't even out yet!

It's entrancing and five second lives have somehow taken up hours of my day, to the point that I think about it at work. You build up the bravado, convincing yourself you could easily dominate the next level only for the game to headbutt you and then kick you in the genitals when you're most vulnerable.
I'd never thought I could compare that to something good, I'm not sure what you've done to me!

I'd love to say that it's the perfect balance of brutality against fairness but it's not and that's one of my favourite things about Wave Wave. It is unapologetic in the most vindictive way. It's a game I hate to love and love to hate but there's no doubt that the game just hates me. I'm going to be gifting this to a few special people that really deserve it!

If you're in any doubt after this how I feel about the game then I can say only this: it's borderline perfection. It defines the genre and sets a whole new standard for how much content can be included. It's the prettiest game I've seen in the genre, the fluidity and fidelity are something that can only be believed during gameplay.
I really wanted to tone down my hyperbole for this post but I've failed. I just don't care. It's your fault for making me fall in love with this game. If anyone needs me, I'll be in the corner playing Wave Wave
And I definitely still stand by that. Incredible brutal twitcher with massive depth and gorgeous design. Cannot recommend this enough!

You're welcome I can't play it right now but I'm looking forward to trying it out later today, seems like a really fun/frustrating game!
