Voltaic is a top-down multiplayer shooter that combines bouncing projectiles with rapid movement.
The core gameplay focuses on constant movement. Four players take to the battlefield in a neon-lit arena, where they battle to secure the sphere.
Players have the ability to shoot a projectile that ricochets off surfaces multiple times, destroying enemy players upon impact. Players reload through movement, to balance their rate of fire and to increase conflict by forgoing the need to search for ammunition.
Players also possess a quick dodge ability to avoid incoming projectiles and manoeuvre quickly around the map, further reinforcing the core gameplay. This ability also doubles up as a brief stun when used to hit opposing players, allowing the dodge to be used offensively.
