You play with up to three other players and choose from one of the eight game modes, which include a classic all-against-all battle to the death, a robbery game where you need to collect the most artefacts and escape, and a mode where you fight against computer-controlled police. Each player has three lives, and when they are all lost, they can rejoin the round as a policeman who can use their taser to fight.
In each, you can use any item you find, including a torch, a bomb, and even a flamingo statue, to whack others and defeat them. Experimenting with the physics and what you can do with each weapon is essential; coming up with ambitious ways to destroy your opponents can often lead to even more hilarity.
The result is a fast-paced, frenetic party game that offers a wide variety of games that require quick thinking and cunning. The multitude of bizarre and amusing ways you can fight allow for endless moments of unique and hilarious chaos.
You can play this game in the following styles:
7+ year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game. Still, it’s important for parents and guardians to ensure they understand in-game purchases and have spending limits set-up. Play is fast-paced and good control is required, and each player should be prepared to lose very quickly on occasion. However, younger players with a good helping of patience and sense of humour often really enjoy the hilarity of simply failing when they least expect it - of from a chair to the head.
