Welcome to StratoBash!
Want to win some cash? Up for a game of StratoBash? Good luck getting to the top, you'll need it!
Puzzles, combatants, earthquakes, wind storms, explosive traps & more will stand in your way. Complete each island's requirement to ride a portal up to the next. The quicker you move & the better your stats – the better your prize will be.
The more damage you take, the easier it will be to be knocked off. Same goes for your enemies, whose eyes will grow redder from each hit.
... now what to do about that big mysterious ship?
If you have a VR headset & tracked controllers, you can throw the bashers – the harder the throw, the harder the knock! When landing a hit, extra bonus throws will be made for you.
StratoBash uses a hybrid "dash teleport" system to prevent nausea while still allowing the player to move. You can teleport to nearby locations & enemy knocks will be applied as additional, forced teleports.
No VR? That's OK!
If you do not have a VR headset, StratoBash is still completely playable with a mouse & keyboard.
You can edit & import your own models to help construct levels (by modifying the contents of the TerrainParts local directory). Also, you can rewrite the word puzzles (by modifying the Riddles/lines.txt file). Read more about this in the discussion forums!
StratoBash reminds me of a classic Toejam and Earl game that I played on my Sega Megadrive long time ago, well at least when it comes to the main idea. We are in an alien world and our goal is to climb up, we don't collect any missing parts of our ship though. The biggest difference is that we do it in 3D and in VR. The game isn't all that great but it is hard to find any masterpiece for VR, perhaps Fallout 4 will bring something decent to the table but for now, this will have to do.
If the title of this review didn't give it away, Stratobash is about going up, and by 'going up' I mean climbing a tower of traps... in VR. You, the player, are tasked with climbing a tower in record speeds to gain prizes. The speedier you are, the greater the reward. But, reward doesn't exist without risk and you WILL be facing many obstacles in your path. Stratobash manages to maintain an intense atmosphere and takes advantage of the VR environment to amplify this into reality. You and your enemies will be trying to knock each other off the tower, so if you give in to stress than throw yourself into the modding scene made easy by the game's developers. All in all, a worthy game for the affordable price and one worth trying out.
