    With two different game modes you can beat each other up. In"Free For All" everybody is on his/her own to eliminate other players and collect the most coins. "Treasure Run" on the other hand a treasure chest will pop up in the middle of the map and you have to carry it back to your starting point. Of course treasure chests are pretty heavy, so you can only move very sluggishly.

    Multiplayer arcade-style games don't get much more fun than Super Treasure Arena. Its pixel-perfect charm is just the icing on the cake.

    Unforgivable lack of exploding barrels aside, Super Treasure Arena is a fun little multiplayer game. While the lack of actual online play (on the Switch, anyway), game modes, and levels is a definite problem, Arena counters its shortcomings quite a bit simply by being cheaply priced. For a quick old-school multiplayer fix, it’s a safe bet.

    Super Treasure Arena has all the elements of a great arena shooter: fast and tight gameplay, intuitive controls, and clear objectives and challenges. To make this a worthwhile download though, it absolutely needs to be an online experience. It works locally because of how solid the overall experience is, but that should be a secondary option, not the primary way to play.

    Super Treasure Arena is a very simple and minimalistic retro-styled action game with strategy elements. While at its core the game offers some fun, especially if played with friends (though without a dedicated multiplayer), it quickly becomes too repetitive and the lack of goals becomes impossible to ignore, not to mention the slightly unsuitable control scheme.
