Originally titled H.A.V.E. Online, and renamed MicroVolts, it features vibrant gameplay and thrilling action.

MicroVolts is a highly charged online shooter that offers an innovative Third Person approach over the traditional First Person shooter, making it easier to play and more fun to watch while offering extra excitement and intensity. Each individual player’s statistics are logged and MicroVolts also gives the opportunity to level up so your character becomes an even more feared opponent in the fun-to-play levels. MicroVolts takes place in a fun environment that features the battle of puppets vs. puppets. Watch from Third Person perspective how your own puppet handles the Gatling Gun and wreaks havoc among the enemy puppets.

After only two weeks in the open beta phase, the MicroVolts player population has soared and continues growing rapidly every day. To celebrate its success, MicroVolts will host a number of events where players will have the opportunity to win fantastic prizes including an iPad 2. The events start tomorrow March 26 and will continue through April 11! For a chance at winning and to play the game, players can download and play the game for free.

"We are thrilled at the response we have received during our open beta phase," said Howard He, President of Rock Hippo Productions. "After only two weeks our player population continues growing higher and higher each day, so much so that our first official update is to add new server channels in order to support the growing traffic!"

To thank the active and growing community, MicroVolts will host the MicroVolts iPad 2 contest where they will be giving away two custom MicroVolts iPad 2's. Players who rack up 10 hours of play in one week will automatically be entered into the drawing. The first event will take place between March 28 through April 4, and the second iPad 2 drawing for 10 hours of play will take place between April 4-11.

Additionally, this weekend between March 26th and 27th, MicroVolts will give out 2,000 bonus experience points for everyone who plays at least three hours!

Game modes include Deathmatch team battle, Deathmatch item battle, Weapon restriction battles and many more, while also featuring various maps designed by toy concept.

MicroVolts places the gamer in a toy playground and pits players in the roles of action figures in a war that's been waged in our own homes unnoticed. How did the war start? Who made them? It's time to take up arms and fight for valuable battery resources and supremacy of the Micro World.

Featuring fast paced gameplay and a thriving number of different weapons, characters, levels and modes, another of the game's unique features is the possibility to customize your character. With literally thousands of cosmetic items either purchasable or freely available, no one character must look the same.
