Crazy, dynamic and fun! Fight your friends and enemies in this old-school platform brawler game! Jump and dodge their weapons, find one yourself, throw it at them, watch it bounce, find a power-up and win! Two players required, three or four for maximum mayhem!

Features

This game is a crazy but simple 2-4 player 2D platform brawler with throwable bouncing weapons available on Xbox Live Indie Games.

Original release

The game was released to Xbox Live Indie Games on October 26 2012. The XBLIG is now shut down so we're working on porting the game to MonoGame and re-releasing it on Steam during the first half of 2018.
