Description

Robot Roller-Derby Disco Dodgeball is a projectile-based sports FPS where you race around a dance club in jet-powered robots, launch off skate park ramps and nail each other with exploding glow-in-the-dark dodgeballs.

Every shot is a one-hit-kill and you can deflect and catch enemy fire or perform a wide array of trick shots for bonus points or just to show off.

It plays like you enabled 'all-throwing-knife' mode in other shooters, and were all on skateboards, and at a rave.

      - Bo Moore, WIRED
    • "So many satisfying moments. It's a great idea well executed. You should probably think about buying it if you're into arena shooters - frankly, it's a damn good one."
      - TotalBiscuit, YouTube
    • "Disco Dodgeball feels like an utter revelation, a lightning bolt aimed to shock FPS developers from their creative slumber (9/10)."
      - Steven Wright, IndieHaven
    • "A breath of fresh FPS Air. Manages to redefine what the genre is capable of...In many ways, Derby Disco Dodgeball boils the FPS genre down to its very basics but it also repurposes those basic elements into so many fun and unique alterations that becoming bored is next to impossible."
      - Nate Hohl, GameCrate.com
