Beast Breaker is a game where you play as a tiny warrior mouse named Skipper. The world is filled with peril, and Skipper is well-equipped to defend it through the use of careful tactical planning… followed up by charging directly at the enemy and bouncing around like a murderous pinball.
Video Games’ next title will have you literally bouncing off of the walls, and you won’t have to wait too long to play it — the Beast Breaker release date is next week on PC and Nintendo Switch.
There are a handful of games in the world that feature pinball bouncing mechanics such as the four-player action-adventure Skeleton Crew. There are, of course, plenty of games that use pinball mechanics in the traditional way (such as Dragon Pinball on the Nintendo Switch), but this might be the first game I’ve seen where your character serves as the projectile aside from Cheap Ramen Games’ competitive “sports-ish” game Meow Pow.
Unfortunately, there are no Epic Games Store or Nintendo eShop pages up just yet.
Beast Breaker was first revealed earlier this year by Vodeo Games, a studio whose roster includes one of the designers of the popular mobile puzzle game Threes. This will be the first of what will hopefully be many annual releases from the company.
