Rumble Hockey Review
Rumble Hockey is the exact copy of Rumble Stars Football – the only thing that changes is football replacing the hockey puck. The game mechanics, characters, gameplay, animations are pretty much the same. If you have not played that game, here’s a brief overview – this game offers real-time strategy gameplay where you will battle against other players for the trophies and the rank. The battle takes place in two players in real-time. You will sling the characters to the battlefield in a strategic way to score the goals. The player with the most number of points wins the match and gets the rewards including trophies and chests. Check out the gameplay review for more details.
F2P Vs P2W Review
By spending the real money in Rumble Hockey, players can get the gems. These gems can be used to open the chests that you get by defeating the opponent – also, you can use gems to shop a bunch of items such as gold, character cards, chests containing cards and gold, etc. As a f2p player, you will have to wait for hours to claim the reward from the chests as the game keeps them locked for a certain amount of time. Sometimes, it lets you open the chest immediately by watching the video ads.
From these chests, players can get the rumblers cards that they can use in upgrading. Since gems are hard to get, as a f2p player, you will have to rely on the free chests that you acquire by defeating the opponents in the hockey matches.
From our perspective, Rumble Hockey does help the players who spend money. You can buy gems with the real money and spend on the chests for cards and coins – and, use them in making the characters stronger quickly. Although, having characters with great stats would not help you win matches if you don’t use them properly.
Final opinion: –
- You can max out your cards quickly – buy chests, get cards, spend gold coins. As a f2p, it would take longer to max out the cards
- The strategy is important. Your max out cards would not help you if you don’t use them properly.
- So, we would say it’s pay to progress – but, not pay to win! You can’t win without a proper strategy
If you are familiar with Rumble Stars Soccer, Clash Royal like games, then you would love to hear that Rumble Hockey offers similar gameplay. Players assemble their rumblers lineup by adding the six units and sling them to the battlefield to score the goals. To sling the characters, you will need energy, which recovers gradually during the battle.
The strategic part is using the characters wisely – there are over x40 rumblers in Rumble Hockey game; each one possesses a unqiue ability. For example; several rumblers excel in shooting the puck, while some in passing the puck to friends/allies on the field.
It challenges you to build a balanced lineup of the rumblers and come up with a great strategy to beat the opponent in the battles. Overall, the gameplay is fun and challenging. The graphics, game environment, animations, controls are amazing.
Rumble Hockey has Ads. Players can watch the video ads to open the chests and get some items for free from the shop. It also features IAPs; you can buy gems and the chests with real money.
We would give Rumble Hockey 3/5 stars. Highlights: –
- The time gate system – you can’t claim the chests that you win by beating the opponents. You are forced to wait for hours or spend gems, or watch video ads
- Pay to Progress Faster- spend real money, buy chests, and get the cards quickly
- The gameplay is fun, good, and challenging
- Fast-paced battles
- Amazing characters with unique strength and abilities
