Secret Ponchos is a competitive twin-stick shoot-out fest with MOBA styling’s set in taking in an isometric Old West world.  Developed and published by the small studio of Switchblade Monkeys the game was announced at PAX East in 2013 then formed part of Sony’s PlayStation 4 press conference at E3 the same year. Pick a miscreant from four characters, partner up with another player to create a gang, albeit a small one, then head out to the digital frontier to find another like-minded couple and do them more harm than they can do to you in the time that’s allowed. The game plays much like an online battle arena title as the classes selected play an important part of the game.
Like Team Fortress 2 (a game the developers have stated as an influence), the title plays the most fun when understanding your buddies and baddies abilities because working effectively with your cohort will win the duel-duel (double-duel?).
On the subject of bugs the game is still in it’s “Early Access” cycle so as you would expect it has some stability issues and as well as absent features. Currently the game has no keyboard and mouse support, but thankfully the game works really well with a twin-stick controller (either Xbox 360 or DualShock game pads).
The biggest issue, and one I completely understand how it has occurred, is that the game doesn’t have enough bodies playing, making its matchmaking at ‘off-peak’ times decidedly difficult.
The unattractive truth is that Secret Ponchos is a toothless prospector; the game is missing a lot but knows where the gold is! After this the top priority for the devs should be adding AI and then using them to craft s a singleplayer experience with a narrative (as these characters are crying out for a back story or an adventure) or even better still co-operative mode with you and a buddy, Butch and Sundance against the ‘horde’ of desperado’s.
Options are woefully missing from the menu for the basic and usual technical titbits you’d expect from a PC game.
It appears although not implemented that eventually you’ll be able to see how you stack up against your internet brethren in official league tables. Secret Ponchos is available now on PC Steam Early Access with a full release for both PC and PlayStation 4 coming “this fall”. Der Publisher und Entwickler Switchblade Monkeys verpasst seinem Twin-Stick Online-Shooter am 17. Die verschobene PS4-Version von "Secret Ponchos" bekam einen neuen Release-Zeitraum verpasst.
For the next five days, you can play the competitive PvP game Secret Ponchos” Most Wanted for free. And here’s something rather cool: if the game reaches concurrent player milestones, the developers will unlock new content for all players. Those wanting a dungeon crawling experience can play Sword Coast Legends for free this weekend, starting on December 17. Since then the game has received a lot of interest and now this wagon rolls into PC via Steams Early Access initiative. Playing as the ‘Phantom Poncho’ for example you’re able to use your whip to snare or stun the enemy while a ‘Deserter’ class can then impale an opponent dealing an impressive 1-2 of massive damage. The game will crash out from time-to-time or you’ll encounter ‘quirks’ – such as if you’re in the lobby on your own you can force the match to start with just your character leaving you to wonder the badlands on your lonesome. This is quite a small amount, but each does offer a different scale, style and are well crafted enough to allow for plenty of choke points or spots to hide and ambush an opponent using the cover, such as behind barrels and walls. This progression results in points to spend on boosting the base stats and abilities of your character (movement speed, fire rate etc). The characterisations are amazingly animated, look detailed and have a fun Gorillaz-esq style to them.
When you do manage to play, the only team sizes are 2-vs-2 and in addition having only one flavour of game mode available, Domination, does tend to make things go stale shortly. No interface exists for changing the screen resolution; this is instead managed via a keyboard combination, nor an option to even quit out of the game at the time of writing.


At the moment the Leaderboard to check your standings against other players, ‘Blood Bets’, gang management and an Online Store for what appears to be character customisation lead to nowhere. Well although Switchblade Monkeys have confirmed very little of a development timeline, they have said that many of the wish list (maps, modes, AI and even split-screen etc) are coming to the game at launch.
Dabei haben wir es mit einem  Multiplayer-Western-Shooter zu tun, der aus der Top-Down-Perspektive gespielt wird. If you like the game and decide to buy it, you can take 50% off the purchase price until December 21. We’ve heard Secret Ponchos is rather good, and we had fun when we played some of the user created content during the Sword Coast Legends beta. This is not a game to play lone wolf – unless the match making is broken …which it is from time-to-time. These items are however destructible so you do have to pick and choose your hideout wisely.
Four playable characters and three maps, as wonderful as they are to play and look at, are too few to allow you to get stuck in or hold your attention for any duration. Angekundigt wurde der Titel zuletzt fur die PlayStation 4, aber auch PC-Spieler werden versorgt, wie die Entwickler im Rahmen der PAX East 2014 zu verstehen gaben. Es gibt die Moglichkeit, sich in Duellen zu messen, mit mehreren Leuten in Gangs sowie im Free-for-All.
Although a player’s health doesn’t regenerate, around the map, you’ll also have access to random pick-ups that spawn (along with other perks).
If you do wish to hone your skills away from real people, the offline practice mode consists of a measly match against constant respawning lifeless and stationary opponents. A lady Matador appears in promotional material who is seen to be lightning fast, but has to utilise melee attacks only, and the other being teased by the development team is a “Trapper” (whom I envisage as a brawler Davy Crocket type fellow) who they hint at will be able to lay suitable ambushes for other dastardly outlaw types.
For the money and its status I’m not expecting League of Legends or Team Fortress, but at this moment it just has too few ways for you to die in the Old West. Die PC-Version wird zunachst uber einen Early Access angeboten, was fur die notige Finanzierung sorgen soll. Aurally the music is a real highlight with selection of distinctive western style melodies that are both catchy and memorable. As well as new characters and more maps are mentioned throughout development and more post launch to expand the universe they’ve created. The game is paper thin, but on that paper it has jotted down some good ideas, created some wonderfully presented art work and a detailed treasure map for its planned journey ahead. You start the game with the elegant and dark outlaw selection menu, which highlights the most fun part of the game: the outlaws themselves.
The mysterious Phantom uses a double barrel shotgun and is a lethal whip wielder able to stun at a good range. The four characters are also well balanced towards each other and give a solid learning curve that when you proficient prove complementarily to your duelling partnership and to be feared.
The maps I also feel should be more interactive and have elements that can be used against your opponents – such as TNT crates that explode, or some sort of hunters traps that stun.
There are five outlaw characters to choose from, each carefully balanced and designed to stand apart from each other.
Balance between all characters is something many games strive for, and I believe Secret Ponchos accomplishes that. This lets you test your skills and focus on tactical elements of gameplay, which is what Secret Ponchos is really about.


It’s not just a twin-stick shooter, it’s also a fighting game, meaning you need to be able to deal with close combat, stealth, and traversing the level to become the top outlaw.Not only does the character design instantly translate the personality of each bandit, but the sound design is plucky and immersive as well.
It reminds you of the best soundtracks of old spaghetti Western movies and provides the perfect courageous spurring for kicking other outlaws’ butts. And every menu movement plays a sound that fits with the song, so you can provide instrumental backup if you want. This provides entertainment while waiting for matchmaking, which, if you’ve played the game before the recent patch, you know that matchmaking was taking quite a while. No surprise, considering it’s an indie game with less than 10 developers trying to handle its recent skyrocketing server load due to being a free PS Plus game this month.
Matchmaking now gets you to your next match quickly.Varied Outlaws Test Your Skill in the Dusty WestAll of the different game modes provide enough variation and challenge to dispel any initial misconceptions about the game not being able to hold your attention. Games that are simply online matches can seem that way, but this one is finely tuned to offer much entertainment. From my experience, free-for-all best represents the experience Secret Ponchos should be known for. Wild, fast-paced skirmishes where everyone is your enemy seems to embody the spirit the devs were trying to go for.
You have to be quick on the draw and have confidence in your outlaw’s abilities.One unique tactic I came to love was hiding.
However, my favorite outlaw, Phantom Poncho, blends in to the environment with a swift flourish of his poncho and a sleepy tip of his sombrero.
Waiting silently against a wall while the battle comes closer and blasting an unsuspecting victim repeatedly with my shotgun was great fun, and helped me tip the outcome of the match in my favor on more occasion than one.You might be thrown off by the lack of a tutorial, but there is a practice mode.
So before you go fumbling into a real match, change your game choice to a local practice match and test each character out few times. This mode is not made obvious, perhaps in the same spirit as being thrown into the water in the beginning to learn how to swim.
Ranked mode provides more of a gamble with your bounty in order to get more experience, which you can use to increase your outlaw’s stats. If you never gain enough money to reach the next skill point reward, you are stuck with the same old stats, giving you no new helpful advantage in battle. Yet another way Secret Ponchos adds to the down and dirty, rough-going feel of being an outlaw. While there are currently limited characters, levels, and modes, the game still scratches that itch and keeps you coming back for more.
What is currently there is very polished and refined.The setting, art style, sound design, and balanced characters in a unique gameplay style make this game a really great game to own. I love when games seem to walk into my life and satisfy some gaming desire I didn’t know I had. Secret Ponchos is a refined, intricate twin-stick shooter rooted in the Old West that, for those who enjoy simple, yet tactical, online battles, will stand on its own for a time to come.Secret Ponchos review copy downloaded for free with PlayStation Plus membership (December 2014 only).
