Earlier this year, gaming company Psyonix announced the iOS and Android edition of the unique Rocket League football game called Sideswipe, and now this version is officially available for download. Over the next few weeks, players are invited to download and practice this version, with Psyonix later announcing the official and competitive “season” opening date.
Sideswipe, it will be recalled, is a completely different game from the Rocket League familiar to consoles and PCs. Instead of the 3D arena, the game adopts a lateral and two-dimensional perspective, with a virtual stick located on the left side of the screen, and buttons to control the jump and boost (boost) on the right side. You can play in one-on-one battles, or in teams of two players per team in rounds of two minutes each.
Along with the changes, the game maintains the rules as a driving and football game, with a rating system and countless options for changing the design and customization of the cars you drive. In addition, Sideswipe also includes a basketball mode where the goal is probably to hit the ball into the basket and not score goals. The game is free, with options for purchases for both design details and a Rocket Pass subscription that includes increased bonuses.
Entering the game through an Epic Games account also gives special bonuses, a wink to a company that has long since acquired Psyonix. The game is available for download for Android and iOS devices.
