    Go Mecha Ball is a roguelite shooter where you play as this ball going through different levels taking down robots and robot bosses. Here is our Go Mecha Ball Review.

    The game was developed by Whale Peak Games and published by Super Rare Originals, it was released on January 25, 2024, for Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.

    I have a love-hate relationship with roguelikes, if done right I can’t stop playing them and think the world of them, if even the smallest thing is off-putting in the game for me, I absolutely can’t stand the game. Luckily, this game falls under the 1st and I absolutely love this game a lot. There isn’t much of a story that I noticed, but that didn’t stop me from trying my best to actually go further and further with the game. A lot of the time, even with roguelikes, a story is what drives the game for me and motivates me to finish, this game grabbed me with the gameplay on its own so the story wasn’t really needed either way.

    The gameplay is pretty simple, you are a ball and rush into enemies or shoot them, but the best is to combine your moves. Every level has 3 waves of enemies you need to take down and there is a nice variety already in the 1st world, but it gets even more expanded in the other worlds. In the beginning it was pretty hard, but after dying 2/3 times I got a better grasp on the game its mechanics and combat and it made the game instantly a lot more fun.

    Go Mecha Ball Review - world 1

    Each world has its own look and feel with its own mechanics, the 1st one has a bunch of speed/jump ramps, the 2nd world has these strange jump pads and tubes that transport you, and world 3 was a nice desert world with fans that would blow you in the air. In between worlds, there is also a shop where you can buy upgrades, weapons, health, and ammo, but that’s only for the current run. There are also ring coins for in the main hub to buy new weapons, upgrades, and abilities, the weapons can drop from enemies, but in between each level, you can pick one of the upgrades and abilities to use. I really loved the rapid shooter gun and the blade ability, combining those 2 with the basic hit on bosses already felt powerful, but with the extra damage upgrade it made quick work of the first few bosses.

    You will get stuck a lot, but practice makes perfect and with each run, I did get a bit better and got further and further. After a while, I personally got a bit bored and had to take a break, and I would recommend playing this game not in 1 long session but instead a few shorter ones, because that way you will enjoy the game a lot more and don’t get burned out quickly, because you will be doing the same thing a few times over and over again.
