Dash & Slash Through Violet Cycle’s World-Shaking Combat

Kinetic arcade game Violet Cycle will have players zipping around a variety of arenas as they try to take down all of their enemies in a hurrying, using dashes to catch them and earth-shaking weapon strikes to dispatch them.

Players must seek out the seeds of life as they scour the blocky landscapes, dealing with the array of odd beasts that have settled into them. These creatures can be defeated with several different weapons the player picks up as they explore the world, giving them a variety of attack types, from slamming foes up close to smacking everything in a line. Players can also dash around these battle sites, encouraging them to fight quickly before the monsters can get a bead on their location.

Violet Cycle uses screen-shaking impact effects and a colorful, block-based visual style to give the game its own look and appeal. It also allows for destruction of the procedurally-generated environments to draw players in with the potential for destruction, creating an explosive chaos as the elements are blown apart, players dashing around as they shake the ground with every strike.
