You shoot at enemies, but not to kill them. In Splatoon, the idea of shooting has been used unusually.

It’s a multiplayer game in which you fight for control of an area. There are two teams of four on the map, and you are tasked with covering as much area as possible with paint in a certain amount of time.

You’ll be in the middle of ink battles here, literally shooting colours across the surface of the map, and in your territory, you’ll be able to turn into a cephalopod form that moves twice as fast and becomes invisible to your opponents. Sounds like fun, doesn’t it?

If you’re into Splatoon like games, you might also enjoy the titles we’ve selected for you.

Rad

The world has survived two apocalypses and now the future lies in the hands of the younger generation.

Morphies Law

Release date:2019-07-30
Genre:Indie
Developer:Cosmoscope

Another multiplayer game in which you shoot at your opponents, but not only can you defeat them, but you also take over their body weight.

To jump, you have to defeat your enemy. It will make your legs grow and thus his will shrink. This ability provides new skills, for example with your big foot you will be able to kick the opponents.

Rest assured, you won’t become a huge ever-growing Mexican hulk, because the creators have taken limits into account, however, you’ll also have to shed some volume in some situations to, for example, squeeze through a pipe.

Key features
  • By shooting your opponents you take away their body mass and grow yourself
  • Enlarged muscles give you more options
  • Unique war paints
  • Three main modes

Katamari Damacy REROLL

Release date:2018-12-06
Genre:Casual
Developer:MONKEYCRAFT Co. Ltd

The gameplay is a bit like making a snowman, except that you use objects you encounter, no matter if it’s a street lamp, a banana, or a person. Yes, it sounds as bizarre as it looks.

You move a small character through a bit angular, colourful world. Like a magnet, you attract various objects and form them into a sphere. The bigger the sphere, the bigger the objects, up to the size of an apocalyptic mass that will pull even skyscrapers.

All this is to send it into space to replace the stars that were inadvertently destroyed by the King of All Cosmos.

Key features
  • Insane animations
  • You create a sphere from objects
  • The bigger the sphere, the bigger the things it absorbs, starting with pins and ending with mountains

de Blob

Release date:2017-04-27
Genre:Action & Shooter
Developer:Blue Tongue Entertainment

INKT Corporation has taken back the colours of the world, and you play the role of the Blob, who is one of the few individuals opposing the enemies.

You can paint trees, cars, billboards and whatever is in the city. Your character will roll through the streets painting objects, but will also jump and bounce off buildings.

At first, your task will be to get a colour, with each stage there will be more and more colours and you will encounter various obstacles in the form of water or black ink that will wipe out the paint.

Key features
  • You colour the city the way you want
  • Possibility to experiment with colors
  • Each level is composed of three sections
  • The music corresponds to the colors of the Blob (for example, if it is red then saxophone you will hear)

The unique idea of the creators of Splatoon has inspired the developers of many games. It’s the colours that unite these disparate productions, and each is original in its way. Playing dodgeball, riding a scooter, or creating stars are just a fraction of what they offer.
