Made by Jonas, Niklas & Josef during a weeklong gamejam in February 2015. Arenaroids is a gameplay prototype, hence lacking in graphical quality. Please try it out and use this google form to tell us what you think of the gameplay.

ArenaRoids is a local multiplayer deathmatch game for 2-4 players. One xbox360 gamepad is required for each player.

In ArenaRoids, players battle against each other in a procedurally generated and ever-changing asteroid battlefield. Travel from asteroid to asteroid to gain advantagerous positions and fight for the powerful special weapon pickups.

A range of different weapons make for interesting battlefield dynamics where the hunter quickly becomes the hunted and several different play styles can be successful.

Score points by killing other players.
