    Only the second-ever mobile game I would consider one of my favourites of the year. It's a blast.

    Rocket league sideswipe is a 2.5d port of rocket league over to mobile devices. The core gameplay mechanics haven't been changed much but the execution makes it feel like a brand-new experience. When playing sideswipe at first it feels odd compared to the tactile rocket league as you feel less in control, but you soon learn that your move set is far more capable than you first thought.Rocket league sideswipe is a 2.5d port of rocket league over to mobile devices. The core gameplay mechanics haven't been changed much but the execution makes it feel like a brand-new experience. When playing sideswipe at first it feels odd compared to the tactile rocket league as you feel less in control, but you soon learn that your move set is far more capable than you first thought. Your car is faster to turn and can leave the ground without jumping if you move correctly. You learn tricks like positioning your car in the air to hit the ball in different directions and to boost and jump to move lightning fast into the ball. It's refreshing to see 0 ads upon loading the game compared to some lesser quality mobile games from modern companies. I'll admit, when i first saw the ads for the game, I thought it would be a horrible port of rocket league that wasn't fun and was easy, but i was wrong. I would recommend anyone with a mobile device to download this game and at the very least, try it. Expand

    It's different and it plays differently, but at the end, you have the same smile on your face and the same desire to play another match. Rocket League Sideswipe is a great example that to port something into mobile devices is not only to copy and paste the original game for android or iOS. It’s to understand the game's soul and put it inside a distinct and truly portable experience. Great.

    It's a downsized version of Rocket League that streamlines and shrinks the experience, without sacrificing its fundamental nature. It also brilliantly takes advantage of the mobile medium with super-quick games, easy-to-understand mechanics, and excellent controls. Sideswipe is a smaller, quicker, lighter-weight version of Rocket League that still captures why the original is so endearing, and it's absolutely a game you should make space for on your phone.

    It won’t replace the real deal, but Rocket League Sideswipe turns the brilliant arcade sports game into an entertaining mobile companion.
