A new game from QuadraTron Games (www.quadratron.com), Team Rock Blasters, is now available on IndieDB. Team Rock Blasters is a 2v2 team game based on the arcade classic Asteroids, inspired by the growing trend in team-based competitive games like Hokra and Bara Bari Ball, and a 2v2 game jam challenged by the folks at Cipher Prime's Dev Night.
In Team Rock Blasters, four players compete for points in a game of space rock blasting and gold chunk collecting madness. On each team a player takes on the role of either a Blaster or a Collector. Much like in the game Asteroids, the Blaster shoots at meandering rocks for points.
Unlike Asteroids, however, may also blast the other team’s players to smithereens for points. In contrast to the Blaster, the Collector scoots around the play field collecting chunks of gold which were blasted out of the rocks by the Blaster. His only means of defense is a impenetrable shield. If he should die to rock or Blaster, however, all his gold (and points) float peacefully back into space. The team with the most points when the last rock is blasted wins!
I’d love to hear your feedback on the game. If you download the game and get to play with 3 of your friends, please feel free to use our contact form to tell me all about your experience. If there is enough player support, I would love to pursue additional development of the game with the inclusion of additional game modes and optional gameplay elements.
