Fans of dodgeball have only previously had one way of taking in their favourite sport in videogame form – the rather fun, but seriously simple StikBold! – A Dodgeball Adventure. Now though it’s time to turn the dodgeball mix up to 11 and head down to the disco as Disco Dodgeball Remix has arrived.
Available to purchase and download for £11.99 – with a launch discount in place for those who are quick – Disco Dodgeball Remix comes from the Zen Studios team, as they veer away from their pinball roots to attempt something a little different.
And different is most definitely what we are getting with this physics based futuresport as we get to combine action that involves robots, projectile combat and some of the maddest neon-fuelled dodgeball action you can imagine. And whilst Stikbold went down one serene, yet weird, dodging route, Disco Dodgeball Remix is certainly going down another path.
With single player, local multiplayer and online matchups all present, you’ll get to dodge, deflect and catch your enemy fire, performing aerial stunts and listening in to a crazed monster truck driver every single time you score.
