Put Down with The Showdown Effect

The Showdown Effect is billed as “a 2.5D multiplayer action game inspired by 80’s and 90’s action movie”, which in practice means it’s like a 2(.5)D version of Team Fortress, with your character jumping across platforms, scooping up weapons and killing others to death.

It has been generally well-received by people during its recent beta (although I didn’t get a chance to try it personally), with many comparing it favourably to the (never-released-on-Mac) co-op wizard suicide simulator, Magicka. It’s now available on Steam, and there’s a trailer below.
