LEVEL DESIGN :

FACTORY_06 – THE STADIUM

Look for the trampolines on the ends of level to propel yourself on your opponents, but beware of the central platforms that move ! 

fac_06

SUBMARINE_02 – THE EYE

In this level made of large corridors, a bomb is triggered if it’s touched. Once activated, the bomb moves all throughout the level and can be sent off on contact… beware of its timer, or you may explode with it !

FOREST_04 – CREEPERS

Creepers (no, not from Minecraft) come in and out from the ceiling and allow you to hang onto them… make good use of the jungle’s density on the level’s top and bottom corners to protect yourself or destroy it to expose your opponents to a deadly laser !

DESERT_06 – THE CANYON

In this arena, meteor storms regularily threaten the canyon, between the platforms. Push your opponents in them and use the destructible passages to flee at the last moment !

SUBMARINE_05 – THE DEADLY ROOM

A circular arena with bland looks… but provided with a rotating laser hunting down players ! Escape the laser while pushing your opponents on it !
