Update 6.2 Released: Skill-based rooms

Players now have the option to add a 'Skill Restriction' flag to rooms they create. The 'Novice' option will prevent players level 20 or over from joining. The 'Expert' option will prevent players under level 20 from joining.

Hopefully this allows both groups to play matches at a level they prefer.

(Note: this replaces the 'Room Type' option from before, which was confusing and didn't have much functionality besides limiting which options were available for basic rooms).

Other changes:

  • Fixed throw speed being affected by slow-motion
  • Fixed throw being overall weaker in 6.1 than it was in previous versions
  • Fixed bots aiming too low, b/c they were using the wrong speed calculation (introduced in 6.1)
  • Changed homing ball behavior. It will generally home much stronger now, even at high throw speeds. However once it passes by a target player, it won't do a mid-air turn as well. So it's both more accurate but also more straightforward to dodge if timed correctly.
  • NumLives value (in custom game modes) now works for PvE bots
  • Fixed missing textures in Trifecta

    Praise lord Gaben as he has let this game on steam.
    This game is just MMM, its just MMM, MMM I say MMM!
    Just to give you a taste of this game I'll list some pros.
    Pros:
    • Great soundtrack
    • Great models
    • Smooth even on old Computers
    • Very Colorful
    • Great time waster
    • Fast paced
    • TONS of customization
    • Plenty of modes
    • Tons of achievements for a simple game!
    • Multiplayer AND singleplayer (Both have team modes)
    of course there are still cons, It's not a game if its perfect.
    If there was something as a perfect video game I'd probably say it was a dream.
    Cons:
    • Hard at first
    • Not able to stop instantly (Well... You are a robot)
    • Can be TOO colorful. (Don't play if you have epilepsy)
    • It's really sensitive and you might say thats good but even at 20 sensitiveity it is STILL senitive.
    • Some pretty good players and a little hard for starters.
    • Not big community
    • Hard to get exactly what you want on multiplayer without making a server
    You should definitely get this game! For all the content it has it is an EXTREMELY good deal, and it has both singleplayer and multiplayer capabilities. This game also has a level up system but you can level up in both singleplayer and multiplayer. Beware though if you get too good at this game you will be called a hacker (Like me) Byt I dont beleive anyone has been banned from this game. But I honestly do beleive you should get this game. You will get TONS of time out of it. and I'm STILL gonna play it even after 5.9 hours. Thats just this week! This game is very addicting and I belive you should get this game.

    I would write a review on gameplay but I would have to actually be able to play the game first. The game uses some font that mac doesn't have or maybe it just was some other error. But after about a week of troubleshooting and searching I just returned the game.

    This game is THE ♥♥♥♥. Very fun, bots are fun to play against if you're having trouble finding online games, it has customizable game modes, simple mechanics, the physics based movement is fun to play with, and the game is aestheticelly pleasing. Definitely worth the money.

    I have very few minor complaints about it:
    - The UI could use a little polishing
    - The game is a bit stingy when it comes to customization unlocks. Drop rated for crafting parts is pretty low, but thankfully you can buy parts in the communnity market for cheap.
    - The sliding mechanic is a little weird; it doesn't seem to offer anything in terms of advanced movement outside of recharging your boost (whch is all I use it for)

    pro/con - You can save replays, and they are directly saved as .gif files, which is really nice. The bad thing is, the gifs are short, so it's hard to capture cool moments perfectly. I reccommend binding the replay capture button to the 'q' key (Default F5)

    Please don't let these few downsides turn you away from this game. It's quite an experience.

    Ok so I have seen a lot of hate on this game and most of it is due to controlls. Listen if you don't know how to get to a new controll type then play only one game your entire life this game is amazing. Also it's wierd controlls help it become a better game. The concept of not stopping makes it a lot easier to do more trick shots. This game is not a perfect game yes and I do feel like it's a little overpriced but that doesn't mean that you can't get it during a sale like come on steam does sales like crazy eventually this one will pop up and the only real problem I see with this game is ledges and mid air controlls but mid air controlls I just have to master in the end this game is insanley fun and a good time killer and I would deffinantly recomend it.

    Burn baby burn! DISCO INFERNO! Burn baby burn!

    Yes. Game may have really small community and game network isn't always stable, but I simply cannot give this game a bad recommendation. It's premise, presentation and execution is extremely tight, creating one of the most fun multiplayer experiences you can find. It's really what it says on the tin: robots playing dodgeballl to the awesome retro-chiptune-disco soundtrack and it's so much fun tossing projecticles into others' faces in pleaphora of ways.

    Grab your friends, buy a 4-pack and have fun. Dev and his game really deserve more love, judging by their commitment with updates and efforts to keep making the game better. It's a really fun and innocent game and those do not come frequently.

    This game itself is amazing. This was highly unexpected-it's a good game. When I first bought this, I expected little to nothing of this game. After playing the simple and short tutorial and then playing my first few bot matches, I got hooked.

    -The game has an AMAZING soundtrack, but it can get repetitive at times.
    -Very colorful, I like that
    -Fun gameplay, nice and smooth
    -Easy controls
    -Single player and online are two good options to play at
    -Bad spawns (you can get killed almost right off the bat)

    Overall, this game is worth to at least try out. I can imagine future updates that highly improve this game and unleash it's awesome potential. Get it while it's on sale. I would rate this game 8/10.

    TLDR below

    Robot Roller-Derby Disco Dodgeball: a unique name for a unique game. I've played some good games, some bad games; I've played games for long periods of time, and I've played games for a few minutes before dropping them forever; and somehow, this game is a shining monument to what a game can be.

    The game itself is pure arena-FPS bliss, with the fun new twists a dodgeball theme would bring. You can choose to weave through a storm of murderous projectiles, or you can drop your own and bring demise to your foes by catching. Various game modes bring on entirely new styles of play: care is required to not die in elimination, while throwing caution to the wind to make a spectacular kill is totally acceptable in score battle. Powerups can turn the tide of battle if you use them correctly and can get you killed if you don't. The rolling movement is slightly difficult to acclimate to but definitely works to help the flow of the game. And of course, it wouldn't be an arena shooter if you didn't have an announcer stating your helicopter kills and your killstreak.

    However, the community and dev are what make the game truly outstanding. The community, albeit small, is full of great people willing to help you on your quest to dodgeball greatness or just chat. Bitter rivalries and strong friendships amongst veteran players make the game almost feel like a sport. Erik, our fabulous dev, keeps the updates coming many months after the game's release, through having a kid and working on a new project. He posted a post-mortem of the game a year after release, outlining the development process, the games strengths and drawbacks, and his plans for the future (link at bottom if you want to read it). Shortly after this, he dropped the games base price from 15 USD to 8 as part of an ongoing attempt to fix one of the game's major problems: the lack of players. He's constantly in the forums answering questions, looking for bugs to patch, and just trying to make everyone have a great experience.

    At this point I must implore you, reader who is considering this purchase: do the community, the dev, and most importantly, yourself a favor; buy this game.

    TLDR: great mechanics, great community, great dev, great purchase!
    Link to post-mortem: http://www.82apps.com/DiscoDodgeball/blog/disco-dodgeball-postmortem.html

    Edit: Totally forgot about robot customization. Robot customization and trading/market is good if you're into that sort of thing but is not necessary.

    The leaderboards on almost EVERY gamemode, the market and customizing your character makes this game awesome.
    Mechanics are good, and the game got optimized some months ago so now it runs excellent.
    There aren't too much people on the online multiplayer but, beside that, there's always people. A lot more fun when playing with friends, too

    If you're an old fart like I am, then you probably remember the episode in "Dextar's Laboratory" where Dextar has to play dodgeball, and always winds up on the wimpy team to get womped by the bullies. So Dextar builds a dodgeball robot to combat them, and in a blaze of fashion and glory, takes down all the bullies, only to get nailed and put out by Deedee, whom was never seen.

    ...that is exactly what this game is.

    This is honestly one of multiplayer games. It is really a hidden gem. The graphics are great and so is the gameplay. The skill-ceiling is super high(I am not very good). It is flat out fun. Also, the music is absolutely perfect. I would suggest it to any steam user who has a computer that can run it.

    Pros:
    Fast-paced engaging gameplay
    High skill ceiling
    Beautiful visuals
    Amazing music

    Cons:
    Nothing really, maybe making the GUI a little prettier, but that is pretty much it.

    I give this game a perfect 10/10. It is just amazing. Stop reading and start buying.

    I think this game deserves a lot more attention. Sure, it's not one that is enjoyable for hours on end, but this game is amazing, It's definatly a break from the norm, and enjoyable with multiple players. A cool idea, with excellent devlopment. I really enjoy it every once in awhile. Was worth the price.
