The free-to-play game Omega Strikers, released on Steam on the 17th, is receiving favorable reviews from users. It has received ‘very positive’ user evaluations for its light game performance and ease of play, such as the feeling of hitting, and the response of Korean gamers is also hot.

Omega Strikers is a 3v3 action sports game developed by Canadian developer Odyssey Interactive. After establishing a position as goalkeeper and forward, the first to score 5 points by putting the core created in the middle into the opponent’s goal wins. The basic rules are close to 3v3 soccer, but it is also similar to air hockey, with the core being bounced without dribbling.

In addition to scoring goals, we also added a brawl element to attack players. If you push the opponent out of the arena, you can return after a certain period of time, so you can lead the game with an advantageous number of players. Each character has unique abilities, so strategic judgment is required, such as using them to attack opponents or to score points by using them for the core.

The fact that it can be played for free, various characters, and a short play time are added, and it is well received with the Steam rating ‘very positive (3,529 participants, 89% positive )’. Among the user reviews, there are opinions that ‘there is no burden to enjoy the game’ and ‘it is fast, pleasant, and has a sense of hitting’.

On the other hand, two new works released today topped the Steam World Best Sellers Chart. ‘Slime Rancher 2’, the sequel to the slime-growing slime rancher, came second, and a Stardew Valley-style potion license that heals residents by making potions came in fifth.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 2022, which began public testing on Steam, ranked 8th in the top 20 with the highest concurrent users of 109,425. However, the evaluation is divided into likes and dislikes, and there are opinions that note the UI and the feeling of operation compared to the previous work. It remains to be seen if these parts will be improved when the game is released.
