About Stikbold! A Dodgeball Adventure
Using simple twin-stick controls and featuring a vibrant, ’70s inspired art style, Stikbold! A Dodgeball Adventure is a fast-paced approximation of the game of the classic ball game, complete with off-court hazards, random events and boss battles. Up to four players can partake in brutal yet outlandish rounds of dodgeball, where fast reactions, tactics and teamwork combine to create a sports game unlike any other. Always enjoyable but truly shining as a local multiplayer game, Stikbold! is slated to become the next couch multiplayer game of choice.
Stikbold! tells the story of Bjorn and Jerome who set out on a heroic mission in the name of love and glory. When a rival team is kidnapped by a man dressed as the devil, our dodgeball-loving superstars begin a journey that pays homage to the best buddy movies of old. The story mode can be enjoyed in single or co-op mode, and details Bjorn and Jerome’s quest to restore glory to their team, encountering all manner of weird and wonderful characters and scenarios along the way. Spread across five levels, each with multiple dodgeball battles, Stikbold! is a beautifully-paced adventure lasting around three hours, with multiple playthroughs offering plenty of bonus unlockables.
