Reading time: 5 Minute


Scott Pilgrim vs The Tech: The Game – Complete EditionA 2D arcade style beat em video game published by Ubisoft, Makes his victorious return. Sports, which loosely follows the events of Graphic novel seriesAllows players to play as Scott Pilgrim, Kim Pine, Ramona or Stephen Stills. Choosing either a single-player or multiplayer mode, players must battle through seven levels filled with hordes of enemies. At the end of every level, players will find one of Ramona’s seven rogues, who will do anything to ensure that Scott and Ramona don’t end up together. Different abilities and characters to choose from, Scott Pilgrim vs The Tech: The Game There is a game for long-time fans of the series and for those who are picking up the game for the first time.

Most of the mechanics in the full version of Scott Pilgrim vs The Tech: The Game Are similar to the original. Each character starts with three lives and full Heart Points at every level, which reduces the damage each time. Once all the Heart Points are exhausted, a life is lost. If players lose all three lives, players must start at the beginning of that level. Players are also given faction points, which allow them to make a special move or call on Knife Chao for support. If a player runs out, Gut Points can also be used as additional Heart Points. The gut points make them an interesting addition to the beat formula, but correlating them to a character’s particular gait is sometimes difficult. Special moves help deal with a large number of enemies at once, but if a player is out of faction points, it becomes more difficult to deal with large crowds.

Each character has different attack combinations and special moves, so players must choose which character they are most comfortable with. Cambos are required to bring down large enemies and break their guard. Characters are also elevated by defeating enemies and earning XP points. Health is recouped upon leveling and the characters learn new special tricks. In classic beat up fashion, players can also use interactive objects or pick up some enemies to use as weapons to defeat enemies. These mechanics make the game really enjoyable because it feels like I’m more immersed in the game than playing the game. It was a great achievement to see the characters I played as a level because it was a sign that I was making progress. It is rare for a sense of accomplishment arising from a beat up game. However, these mechanics are similar to other Beat M games.

A major aspect of Scott Pilgrim vs The Tech: The Game Earning money and shopping for items. Players earn money by defeating enemies or entering special dimensions. There are several shops in some areas that players can travel to purchase three different types of items: snacks, food, and goods. Snacks and food compensate for some heart and intestine points, as well as points of experience. However, food can only be purchased at the restaurant while snacks can be furnished for later use. Players can only take one snack at a time, so beware of the effects that snacks can have. Accessories can be equipped to improve a character’s overall characteristics: defense, speed, willpower, and strength.

After spending a significant amount of time to play the game, purchasing items is a unique addition to letting them beat the game. Rather than simply taking objects, it gives players the sense that they are fully in control of their experience of playing the game. This is an important element as these various items can turn the fight in your favor. However, some items that give better power-ups cost more, meaning players need to be careful about how much they spend. It is safe to collect as much money as you can before buying more expensive items.

Apart from the campaign, there are many additional game modes that players can choose from while playing Scott Pilgrim vs. The Tech: The Game. The first is Survivor Mode, where the main objective is to defeat multiple zombies and as long as players can survive. The next is called Boss TMT, where players must defeat all the bosses one after the other. One of the main objectives is to defeat the bosses as fast as possible. Battle Royal Mode is the free-for-all mode in the wrestling ring for up to 4 players. The final mode is the dodge ball mode, where players must defeat each other in a dodge ball game for 4 players. These modes will certainly provide hours of entertainment for gamers who managed to finish the main story mode or who want to play with other friends.

Main story mode Scott Pilgrim vs The Tech: The Game Can also be played as a co-op mode for 4 players. While mechanics from the single-player mode are also included, new mechanics are added specifically for this mode. Heart points can be shared between players, which can be useful in tight situations. Players can lend money to other teammates who are short on cash to purchase items. When a player is knocked out and all his life is lost, the players turn into ghosts for a short time. Their ghost can turn around, and when near another teammate, they can take a life of their own. Whenever a player is knocked out, teammates can rejoin them by pressing certain buttons. Furthermore, when all players hit their taunts at the same time, they can launch their final attack. This attack, which was a great cure to watch and should not be spoiled, wastes large amounts of faction points.

When the game was announced a few months ago, I was very happy that I could play once again Scott Pilgrim vs The Tech: The Game. I played the original game shortly after its release, but I created fond memories of playing it with friends. From the beginning of the loading screen, a sense of melancholy struck loudly. However, as I played the game more, it was clear that the nostalgic factor was not what the game relied on. A lot of what makes the game stand out is how well it fits into the world of arcade beatam games. The increasing excitement and difficulty after each level made the game really enjoyable. Although the game did not involve much dialogue, the action is where the game shines the most.

Overall, I really enjoyed playing Scott Pilgrim vs The Tech: The Game – Complete Edition. A lot of my enthusiasm for the game came from apathy, but playing it eventually increased my appreciation for the original game. Still the same with most mechanics, it wasn’t too difficult to pick up the game and get accustomed to the controls. Scott Pilgrim vs The Tech: The Game Provides non-stop action with a story that fans new and old will enjoy playing.
