Description

Hover Havoc is a local arena brawler knockout game in which up to four players use their collected power ups and abilities to knock other players out of the arena. The game currently features hovercrafts that can be battled against each other, gaining points for each knockout and the person with the most knockouts wins the round. The game plays in a fun arcade style without incentive to save the history of people’s scores or create a form of highscores. The theme of the game is seen as a TV show where multiple vehicles fight each other in an arena that features obstacles and traps.

History

Hover Havoc began it’s development in October 2015, where our team worked together to create a prototype with fun, exciting, multiplayer gameplay. The project has been developed by a core team of 4 (Jake Brown, Maxim Zazulak, Liam Forde, Steven Hunter) with constant input from all 8 employees at Canalside Studios. The idea of the game began with the essence of driving around an arena and using comical, wild power-ups which makes the game whacky and fun! We found that the most fun comes from a chaotic experience made up by the effects of the multiple power-ups.

Features

  • Exciting and explosive gameplay
  • Gather up to 4 other players, for 4 times the fun!
