Players can enjoy a traditional board game look and experience against the AI or other players.
I’ve always been a huge fan of board games. In a way, they have made an impact on my life almost as much as music has. So, in between composing for Serious Sam and The Talos Principle I’ve played around with prototyping different games that would take care of my board game itch. Finally, my mind was set on Battle Bolts, so here we are. It’s everything I love about board games transferred to a screen. I can’t wait for everyone to try it out.Damjan Mravunac, founder and lead game designer at Shot Second
Key features of this deadly battle arena game include turn-based moves. Players will need to think ahead and plan their next four moves while being aware of the unpredictable nature of other players. By utilizing board elements, players can play a game of cat and mouse while destroying their opponents.
Various power-ups are available to give players an advantage over their enemies. Action moves like dash and strafe can be used to pull off stunts to confuse enemies. The key is always be on the move and on the hunt.
