Skateboarding, mobile MMO gaming, fighting style Old school RuneScapeand Pokémon-like creature-gathering mechanics are the ingredient list for a game’s stew, but developer Closed on Sunday and his small team thought about throwing all of those things together to create it PowVistaa new mobile MMO title in open beta for iOS and Android.

“[Pow Vista] features Pokémon mechanics for attack and defense element bonuses, and the game’s art style is inspired by the Soul Silver/Heart Gold games. Plus, Pow Vistas Combat system looks very similar runic landscape (OSRS) and uses a similar skill and experience system.”
PowVista features many unique creatures to befriend, an open world to explore with other players in crossplay, quests that test “skateboarding skills and strategic thinking,” and unique collectibles like skateboards and hoodies. The game is free to play and features a cosmetic-only Battle Pass monetization model.

As for the game’s updates, most of them See the official discord for details, with the latest version adding a trading system and associated skater market where players can trade hoodies and skateboards between each other or sell their cosmetics for gold. Other recent updates included a new forest level, new skill development, and numerous bug fixes. The game also frequently hosts “drop party” events where limited and unique cosmetic items are distributed to participants – and no, it doesn’t appear that any of these items are limited due to blockchain technology; They are only distributed in the game in small amounts.
