DescriptionShokrok Throwdown is a futuristic team-based sports game where creatures of different worlds come together to compete in an arena. The characters, such as Weapon, Varulf, Juggernaut, Sylph, Footbrawler and Neospartian, have completely different skills and can be played in mixed teams with 3 versus 3 or 6 versus 6. There are 3 main positions in the game: Shocker, Defender and Destroyer. To score, players must capture shokrok, bring them to their side of the field and defend them in 10 rounds of 60 seconds each.
The shocker has to capture a shokrok and throw it into one of the 7 pedestals of his team's side. Shokroks are either stored in pedestals or held in the air if they were in the field when a round ended. Shockers have little means of defense and require the help of the team members, who can defend or attack the enemies. Throwing is done using a charged move from a first-person perspective. While playing in singleplayer or with bots, players can switch between the different players at any time. There is also a coach mode where the computer takes control of the players.
Although the focus is on multiplayer, the singleplayer mode offers 3 tutorial lessons, 25 main games and 4 practise games. For both modes, games can be played with human players or with a mixed selection of bots. Next to the regular games, there are also Royal Rumble matches only using Destroyers when the players only want to fight.
Each player has a set amount of energy and stamina, depleted by performing moves or when knocked out by an opponent. When knocked out, players are kept down to recover. Each character has a main move, combined with two sets of special attacks. Some of these include energy drinks, intimidation, static fields, clone decoys, aerial strikes, wind torches, bites and slashes, a bomb, a gatling gun, harpoon, tar and oil slicks, homing missiles and more. Each team has statistics such as speed, resistance, recovery, toughness, dodge, weight, and more.
The game supports OpenAL and multiplayer internet games.
