GAME MODES FOR EVERYONE
ShockRods features familiar and new arena based gameplay. Itâ€™s going to be very fast and completely furious fun as you take your pick from the following games (playable online against other players, or offline against AI bots):
- Deathmatch â€“ always a favourite, itâ€™s every ShockRodder for themselves as you battle to get the target kill count first!
- Team Deathmatch â€“ like Deathmatch, but with some friendlies on your side who will help you reach that target tally of destruction.
- Capture the Flag â€“ another team-based game; head across the map to grab the other teamâ€™s flag from their base and get it back to your base. But watch out â€“ the other team is trying to do the same thing!
- ShockBall â€“ like some sort of team based over-sized basketball game but with a giant metal ball and masses of explosions!
- Golden Ram â€“ hey everyone, go grab the golden ram attachment and use it to RAM everyone else while trying to hang on to it for longest!
A BUNCH OF EXOTIC ARENAS
ShockRods has a variety of imaginative locations for the ShockRodder to leap and shoot around: From the snowy perils of a precipitous abandoned mine, to the futuristic ball arena, taking in the pleasant vistas from atop the grassy summit of a summer mountain top, to the stomach-flipping drops around the dam and the mysterious malfunctioning reactor core with its pit of lava.
GUNS AND GAGS
Thereâ€™s an armoury-load of guns and some crazy pickups that a ShockRodder can use to ruin his opponentâ€™s day; from the chaingun to the grenade launcher, railgun to rocket launcher. Or use a special pickup on them, and give everyone a giggle; shoot them with the balloon gun and watch as they get dangled in space off the end of it, or encase them in an ice cube and slide them over a cliff! Bash them with a one-ton weight or fire a shield wall to stop them in their tracks! Set a trap that will spring them into space! Thereâ€™s fun and games to be had while youâ€™re winning at ShockRods!
