Thank you Snowrunner Productions for sending us review copies of this game!

Robot Roller-Derby Disco Dodgeball is just as silly as its name suggests.  The levels are dark and colorful like a discotheque.  In contrast to the title and level styling, the game music feels more dance than disco.  Up to eleven robots roam these levels, aiming dodgeballs in your general direction.

There's more to this game than collecting and hurling dodgeballs at robots though.  There are plenty of power-ups and game modes to keep things interesting.  Some of the power-ups include better jumping abilities with the Pogo Jump and Jet Packs.  There's also a homing ball that gives you a nice targeting reticle and the ball will home in on the enemy (within reason).  The megaball is a ball that's five times the normal size and makes it a little harder to miss your moving targets.  If you're tired of your balls being blocked, a fireball power-up will bypass that annoyance for you. All power-ups have to be re-acquired after you've been smashed to bits by a dodgeball.    


Strong Points: Silly and  fun game for the whole family that is a blast in both single and multiplayer
Weak Points: If the multiplayer game room name is taken, you have to exit the game to try a different name
Moral Warnings: Robots get smashed into pieces

While smashing other robots with a dodgeball isn't necessarily the main objective, it's always an option no matter what game mode you're playing.  Naturally there's death match in team or free-for-all variants.  Elimination mode adds more challenge by taking away the respawn ability.  Can you survive until the end?     

Grand Prix mode has checkpoints to pass through to earn points for your team.  Capture the Cube has you bringing your opponent's cube to your goal to earn a point.  While this game mode is fun, it would be more challenging if you didn't get points when your cube was in play.    

There are two game modes that have a special golden ball.  In the Super Ball mode you earn points for your team by holding onto the golden ball for as long as you can.  In Hoops you earn points for your team by shooting the golden ball into the enemy's goal.  All of the standard white balls can be hurled at your opponents as usual.

Violence - 7/10
Language - 10/10
Sexual Content - 10/10
Occult/Supernatural - 10/10
Cultural/Moral/Ethical - 10/10

All of those multiplayer modes can be played against people or bots.  Up to twelve people can play and any unfilled spaces are filled with bots.  If you prefer to play offline there's an arcade mode that pits you against bots and bosses of various difficulties.  You have five lives in total; make them last.  

No matter what modes you play you earn experience towards leveling up your robot.  You earn experience  by knocking out robots or by passing the ball to a teammate and getting an assisted KO if they down an opponent.  As you level your robot up you can unlock new customizations like sunglasses.  

Besides game modes, there are lots of game modifiers to play around with to make things even more interesting.  You can play the game with bigger balls, homing balls, low gravity, and pogo jumps.  Basically, everyone has the same power ups equipped for the entire level.  

As you can see Robot Roller-Derby Disco Dodgeball has a lot to offer for a reasonable $14.99.  This game is fun for the whole family and is bound to entertain kids and adults for hours on end.  While the bots are fun to play against, there are plenty of humans playing this game online.  I recommend joining them!
