It’s always exciting to discover fresh new takes on old existing genres. And whilst we had got a little bored of the standard Battle Royale scene, we’re always up for a new take. It’s that which should get your wings flapping as you flock to the rather delightful Headbangers Rhythm Royale as it releases on Xbox, Game Pass, PlayStation, Switch and PC.
Flap to the beat with Headbangers Rhythm Royale on Xbox and Game Pass
Available right now on Xbox and PC, through Game Pass should you prefer not to splash the cash, is Headbangers Rhythm Royale. Created by the Glee-Cheese team and helped to market by those at Team17, this is a new rhythm-based take on Battle Royale. You’ll also find the game on PlayStation and Nintendo Switch.
Headbangers Rhythm Royale is fairly simple really. It places you in the role of a little pigeon who is left to tap, flap and rap their way through a series of mini-games, all in hope of being crowned champion Headbanger. Feeling a little PaRapper the Rapper in vibes, it’ll be the mastering of the beat and getting down with the sounds that will see success found. And if you fail, you’ll be left to run again, ‘Crumbs’ in tow to ensure customisation can be had.
There are a variety of mini-games in place too. There’s memory, rhythm, reflexes, reaction times and rapping to partake in across some twenty-three options. Let the key features sell a download of Headbangers Rhythm Royale to you a little more.
- Minigames: Grab your friends and battle through minigame madness through online cross platform multiplayer. With 23 minigames across 4 rounds, each Headbangers level contains a new challenge with a stimulating and unique musical twist! Each round escalates in difficulty, progressing musical frenzy until the final round– keep as cool as a coo-cumber and get that bread! Minigames will test your memory, rhythm, reflexes, reaction time and most importantly… your rap ability! Simple controls paired with engaging gameplay, means this musical party is available for all!
- Customisation: Design your Pigeon from hundreds of unique items, including outfits, hats, glasses, voices, taunts and more. For every game you play, you earn Crumbs which can be spent in the Shop to purchase full costumes, costume items, taunts, sounds and more! Your Pigeon is your common canvas to mix and match items, allowing players to create and craft your ultimate Pigeon masterpiece, just like the famous painters Pigecasso and Michelangelcrow. Found yourself at the top of the leader board? Besting your friends? Be sure to spend those hard-earned Crumbs on some in game taunts to rub your wins in your fellow Pigeon’s faces, making your victories so much sweeter!
