Unlike in traditional twin stick shooters, in Particle Mace, you destroy your enemies by swinging giant boulders at your enemies. It takes a deep understanding of your own weight, thrust, and inertia in order to be a master Particle Mace gladiator, but once you get in the zone, this game satisfies like no other.

PARTICLE MACE is a game about capturing the thrill of classic arcade games with a new, physics based mechanic.

PARTICLE MACE is a game about trying not to die, but that's impossible.

PARTICLE MACE is explosive arcade fun for 1-4 players that pays homage to twitch games of the past, but replaces the typical guns with an unruly physics-based weapon. Take control of a tiny ship in an extremely hostile universe, and defend yourself as long as possible from enemy ships and asteroids using a collection of trash particles tethered to the ship. To survive, you must carefully navigate around the many hazards while building up momentum to swing your weapon into your foes or your friends, all in a field of brightly abstracted visuals and an entrancing procedural background.

PARTICLE MACE reviews and comments

A nice soundtrack, a background music that is working, graphic design (if so!!), easy to grasp. All these added ingredients has a small (bought on sale for a handful of pennies), its only gives pleasure. I highly recommend this game.

I find the Game so bad that I hid it in my Steambibliothek. I bought it when it cost 0.19€ and yet it's still a shame for the Money. After the purchase I uninstalled the Game very quickly. Neither Graphics nor Gameplay convince me. As a Free-to-play Game or as a Mobile phone App, it might even be mediocre.

A very nice game that I highly recommend. A view of the nose it may look like a simple remake of asteroid, but we go here much farther with different ships which, each in their own way, will drag behind them cables and weights allowing to smash everything that hangs! Different game modes come to decorate the whole... The kind of arcade game simple and enjoyable as I like:)

I've been looking for games for some Time that can be played well with the Controller and Particle Mace is very suitable for that. The small Spaceship Can be controlled wonderfully with the Anaolog Stick. The 150 Missions are very well thought out and provide a few Hours of Fun. But even after Completing these Missions, you like to come back to Arcade Mode to crack your own High Score. Unfortunately, I couldn't try the Local Co-op mode properly yet, but I could imagine that it is even more Fun with a second Player.

Looking at images of particle Mace it is said that it is a little caricature of what the indie game can represent of unattractive: minimalistic graphics, surely basic controls (it looks like a good old game of rigid arcade), soundtrack surely aggressive and anxious. We test and of course, we return on his first opinion: admittedly particle Mace remains a relatively game... poor graphically, sometimes unreadable, but his qualities are many. The game is actually analogue: the movement is extremely precise and nervous. The music is very present and makes you go into a trance, especially as its intensity increases with the difficulty and the duration of your game. Finally the game is very nice in multiplayer (1 to 4 players) but remains rich and manages to renew itself by playing alone, especially thanks to the ships and missions to unlock. In short, particle Mace is as usual a stroke of heart and its OST too. Particle Mace is cunning, low blows and attempts to attack that result in a lot of failures and even if it's boring, we raise another part, one last because good, it's already 2 o'clock in the morning. In short, if you want to see what the game gives in real, buy it or watch the video below: particle Mace-nuggets and nuggets
