Gameplay

Score the most goals to win!

If you’re a fan of Rocket League, you’re going to want to play this! It’s been brought to mobile but with a twist, you can see the pitch from a side view and it’s all about swiping jumps correctly in order to get the ball in the target!

I’ve played Rocket League a handful of times, and I personally find it pretty hard to control. It takes a lot of practice to get good at it, whereas, this game is a lot easier and perfect because you can play at any time, any place!

The game starts off with a really in-depth tutorial that then goes into Freeplay, allowing you to practice properly before going into a proper match! This way you can go into a real match confident that you’ll score some points!

Graphics

The graphics are great!

The graphics aren’t bad for a scaled-down version of the popular game. I don’t think it looks too different from the console game – the only difference is that you’re playing from a side view, not a point of view.

Music & Sounds

The audio for Rocket League Sideswipe is perfect and exactly like the console game, keeping the authenticity high. I love the songs that are featured and I really feel like it adds a lot to the gameplay as a whole!

Controls

Swipe to control!

The controls consist of swiping (hence the name) and I really love how the controls work. There’s also a boost button that’ll allow you to speed up for a little but make sure not to use it for too long as it runs out quickly!

The Power of in-app Purchases

The Verdict

What did you think?!

I really enjoyed playing this game, perhaps more than I thought I would! You can play with random people, any time, any place and the matches are only 2 minutes so they’re the perfect length.
