Toasterball (Early Access) – It’s Pong with Toasters

Game Review

Toasterball is an awesome physics-based sports ball that combines competitive play and random multiplayer matches with couch multiplayer support with opponents in a variety of multplayer mayhem.

It’s a simple, but very competitive and addicting game. It’s like Pong with toasters and toast. With couch multiplayer. You control the toaster with just two buttons which correspond to left or right toaster slots in the toaster that you control. You need to press the right button at the right moment and release it in order to make the toaster hop to the left or right. IF you press both at the same time, your toaster will jump vertically into the air.

The goal of the game is to knock the ball out of your opponent’s reach in a standard 1v1 Pong match. But the game throws in modifiers and game types like football, boxing, volleyball, bowling, and even catapults- most of these features are still planned. This is just a demo of Toasterball.

I found that the game works well with the silly controls. It’s somewhat awkward to control ,but it was probably made that way intentionally since it’s pretty funny to knock the ball with a toaster. The game even lets you do some pretty random things like play as tiny toasters or even go toastless. Heh.

Right now, it just has a single mode. But it’s fun to play with a friend. If you’re looking to just kill some time with toasters, try out Toasterball. If you like it, you can support the dev team on their Patreon.
