Turbo Pixel Studios’ fast-paced arena shooter Reflex Arena has officially launched on Steam today. It had been in early access and began its alpha phase in May 2015.
Reflex is modelled after classic arena shooters like Unreal Tournament or Quake III: Arena. The indie studio behind the game wanted to bring back this classic style of play. From reflexarena.com: “Reflex Arena is a return to roots, pure, fast, first person shooter [sic]… [It delivers] a truly rewarding experience based purely on your skill and success… There are no limitations in Reflex Arena, the true evolution of the classic arena shooter genre.” Reflex has classic deathmatch, one versus one, team deathmatch, and Capture the Flag.
The game is built on a custom engine and will target 125 frames per second during gameplay. Reflex also has a map editor with workshop integration in Steam. There are future plans to add bots, matchmaking, and regional ranking ladders. The game opens today with a competitive “Season One”. In competitive play, players earn points that, in turn, may be used to purchase items to modify one’s character.
The game can be purchased for 8.49 USD until March 18th. Its standard price is 9.99 USD.
