Skorecery offers a Pong-like structure with its intense, magical multiplayer style.
You will have to defend your runes from a magical ball that your challenger can throw. You can run across the skies or floor, but just grab that ball and stop it by all means.
I got to try Skorecery at the Pregamer event for Pax East, and it was a great warm-up to set my competitive spirit ablaze. Pitted against Editor-in-chief, Joel Couture, I had my work cut out for me. What most players will go for is to grab the ball and hold it until the opportune moment presents itself. Unfortunately for us, players are punished for ball hogging. If one of us held the ball too long, we were stunned as a penalty. This gives the opponent ample time to retrieve the ball and knock it into some unprotected runes. Dealing with curses and spells definitely takes finesse, and I could tell it would take more than a few matches to learn how to handle each curve ball.
The match was intense, fast, and fun. There wasn’t a second that was wasted in the few minutes we had in the round. I got quite the adrenaline rush, scrambling for the ball as we were both down to a few runes each and the next shot would surely clinch it.
Skorecery is available on PS4.
