Ricochet is a multiplayer Half-Life mod developed by Valve.

Richochet is a deathmatch game that closely resembles platformers. The game field is made out of several floating platforms which the players can jump on by stepping on one of the arrows on the edge of the platform.

The objective is to push other players off the platforms using throwing discs - the only weapon present in the game. The player can't have more than 3 discs at the same time. The platforms are limited by a horizontal strip that can be used for ricocheting the discs. For pushing the player off with a direct hit, 1 point is scored. 2 for pushing the player off with a ricochet and 3 for double ricochet.

There are two firing modes: single disc shot and the beheading shot that uses all three discs at once.

In comparison to other Half-Life mods, the number of deaths is not tracked by in-game statistics. Overall, this mod is much more primitive than the others. Only 2D targeting is present and the player movement comes down to jumping from platform to platform.

Ricochet reviews and comments

Incomprehensible Ingenious Game. I don't know where to start. Great Graphics, multi-layered characters, stunning Action Sequences. Just unfathomable. Ricochet changed my life. Since playing it, I've been able to jump 30 Feet, breathe in Space and be a World Disc throwing World champion. With the Story, though, you have to be focused. This is very complicated and has a lot of Plottwists. So take good care! All in all: Clear Buy recommendation!

Ricochet is a valve jego set in the outer space where several players have to jump between several platforms while throwing discs to knock out the others is a very addictive and creative mechanics that will make you spend a good time even has power ups as More powerful other discs that freeze etc etc there is only one problem there are no servers seriously no servers or one valve I leave this game abandoned without updating or remastering then ran out of people who played so there is not a server Where to play buy the game only if you are friends online with whom to play to agree to play or you can buy if you just have curiosity and you like to throw projectiles to the air this Resena was made the first of November of 2016 May in a Future Valve has already done something to revive the game and you are reading the Resena at that time but I see that valve is difficult to do something for this saga Abandondada

Ricochet is a pretty sound interesting game if you think about what your story and your characters are based on. Well my review will start talking about campaign mode. First Of all our character called Lobar goes to the space where he have an accident and finds an extraterrestrial base that rescues him and avoids his imminent death this grateful with the aliens who saved him decides to support them against his greatest enemies, the Roys. This Plot even if it sounds quite cliche you have your points that make this space story look like a different story to the others like Space Dead. Some of the highlights are the secondary characters such as Yasuo or Shrek which are fundamental characters In the development of the game plot as they help the main character in quite a few respects as when Shrek gives him a gem of Infinity to Lobar and his band of friends called Cheiro of Calcinha just at the moment when we have to fight with the final boss which to It carries enough to the mechanics of the mission. Also worth highlighting is the ambience of the game, both visual and sound. The Scenes of space and spaceships are amazing, my favorite part about that was when Lobar found the Guardians of the Galaxy, that panoramic was great. Returning to the topic the space looks great (even more if you play it in HD). The Soundtrack is also good as it participates in the Star Wars Orchestra, The band Brazilian Cheiro de Calchina (which gives the voice to the characters in the game) and Metallica which generates a great experience audiovisual.
