DescriptionPAIN allows players to put a character into an urban environment to create as much chaos as possible. Launched from a human-sized slingshot, the player's character needs to complete specific goals or inflict as much damage as possible by stringing together painful collisions, similar to Truck Dismount and Stair Dismount. After setting the power and rotation, the player can steer their ragdoll through the environment (a force called Ooch in the game), similar to the way post-crashes are handled in the Burnout series. The game's environment is set in a downtown area and six different game modes are available with the initial release.
- Mime Toss (grab a mime in mid-air and hurl the the silent artiste through a number of panes)
- PAINdemonium (sandbox gameplay)
- Spank The Monkey (target monkeys to take them out)
- Bowling (up to four players bowl themselves while the other players can throw mimes, anvils, explosives or cereal in his path)
- Fun With Explosives (target crates strategically to cause big explosions)
- HORSE (launch a powerful shot to cause a maximum amount of damage, the other player has to do better)
