In the far-flung future, mankind has been entirely captivated by DANGER BALL.
Culture and technology have stagnated and fallen into recess.
After the 4th DANGER BALL war, Earth is in ruins and humanity has barely survived.
All they have now is DANGER BALL.
DANGER BALL is a fast paced game to be played locally between 2-4 people, the rules are simply:
- Grab ball
- Throw ball
- Shoot other player with stun gun when they try to grab ball
The way the game works is that each level contains a single, constantly moving ball. Grabbing said ball causes you to gain points based on how many times the ball has bounced since it was last thrown. Once you are holding the ball, you may then throw the ball again in order to catch it. The first player to a certain number of points/the one with the most when time runs out wins!
However, catching the ball isn't so easy! Not only is the ball fast moving and rapidly bouncing, but you must also deal with the other players trying to grab the ball. Each player is armed with a stun gun that they can use to temporarily stun other opponents, which renders them immobile and unable to grab the ball. Holding the ball also leaves a player unable to use their stun gun and makes them a large target, so it's in a player's best interest not too hold on too long.
The tides can turn quickly, just as you're about to catch a ball or grab onto a ledge, you can be suddenly stunned by another player, and as the ball continues to bounce, the reward becomes more and more critical to success.
