About Game

Droid Arena is a fast paced local multiplayer game where two Droids fight until one is destroyed.

  • Great music.

  • Retro sound effects with positional audio.

  • Droids take visible damage and slow down trailing sparks.

  • 1 to 4 objects are placed at random at the start of a match.

  • No Arena is ever exactly like another!

  • Use the objects to change the direction of your bullet streams.

  • Many additional features are already in the pipeline.  Mines and x2 firepower are already being worked on and other pickups are planned that will change weapons, add speed, add health, increase health regen etc.

  • Currently a demo is available with only standard weaponry.

  • ALPHA AVAILABLE (Mines and pickups are not currently in this build).

  • To play Droid Arena simply find a friend and use the keyboard controls WASD and Space for player 1 and Arrow Keys and Enter for player 2.

  • Press 1 or 2 to start a Standard or Chaos mode game.  In Standard mode you can destroy enemy bullets with your own.  In Chaos mode the bullets will pass through each other meaning many more bullets on the screen.

 

 

Basic Tactics for those interested :)
 

Use parallel walls to set up streams of bullets that will bounce around until absorbed by you or hit by your enemy (and their bullets if in Standard mode).  Set as many of these kill zones as possible while trying to avoid your enemy.

Once a Droid has taken considerable damage it will show visible signs of that damage in the form of some damaged panels and will trail sparks.  It will also slow down although it's firepower will remain the same.  Once it takes a lot of further damage it will slow down even further and will show yet more panel damage and will trail even more sparks.

1 to 4 objects are placed at random at the start of a match.  Use them to change the direction of your bullet streams.

The tunnel transporter (indicated by animated chevrons) can be traversed by both Droids and bullets so be sure to use it to fire through or run away if needed.

Energy walls are fatal to Droids.  If you hit one, you will lose all your health immediately.  (In the newer build being worked on the energy walls are not instant kills.  They do however drain a full health Droids energy in about 1.5 seconds so you still have to be very careful around them.)
