Sports Games

The best sports simulation games to play on PC (Part 4)

Tennes

Developer: Jan Willem Nijman

Premiere Date: November 2012

This was originally a bonus game for those who supported the SportsFriends game project on Kickstarter. Tennes is a simple tennis game with flexible game rules. For example, the game does not prohibit you from jumping over the net and playing on the opponent’s court. If you like SportsFriends, you will love Tennes.

Rocket League

Developer: Psyonix

Premiere Date: July 2015

The way to play Rocket League is simple: like football but the player is replaced with cars with rocket. The special thing of the game is the strange physics system: the ball moves slowly like it is spinning slowly, causing many funny and inhibiting situations for the player.

SportsFriends

Developer: De Gute Fabrik

Premiere Date: December 2014

SportsFriends is a set of offline multiplayer games with a sports theme. Hokra is a fast-paced, minimalistic ice hocket game, BariBariBall is a combination of Super Smash Bros with volleyball, Super Pole Riders is a strange pole jumping game. The common point between them is that they are extremely happy to play with a group of friends.

Bloodbowl 2

Developer: Cyanide Release

Premiere Date: September 2015

The Blood Bowl board game is a game from a long time ago, but still exists to prove it has a mysterious attraction. It is one of the most both inhibiting and entertaining games. Everything requires you to shake the dice, which means sometimes players will die in a sluggish manner just because they … run too fast. The electronic version of the Blood Bowl does quite well, but the beauty of this game lies in its famous unique set of rules.

Frozen Cortex

Developer: Mode7

Premiere Date: February 2015

Frozen Synapse’s turn-based battle system, in which both sides had to calculate and make their moves at the same time, turned out to be a very good adaptation to the sports genre. A simplified version of American Football with large robots in a small stadium, Frozen Cortex excelled at recreating each situation, but still lacks the tension of major sports. more, more fluently.
