Stitch Heads Entertainment’s stylish and unique take on pinball will bounce onto PS4s on the 29th of this month. This competitive multiplayer pinball game puts players in control of the ball as they bounce around a pinball table in teams of four. Stylish moves and bounces rack up points, which must be deposited into a team goal in order to count towards the final score. Racking up too many points in one go is risky due to the ever-present risk of another player eliminating you.
Job Lauwen, a producer at Stitch Heads Entertainment, had this to say when describing the philosophies behind the mechanics and game modes of Kabounce:
When you first play Kabounce it needed to be easy to pick up. Just bounce around and tag some bumpers, demolish an opponent to ransack their points – and experience a whole different take on pinball. However, once you start mastering the controls you’ll really be flying through the arena, racking up extreme combos and eliminations to multiply your points.
In the arena you’ll compete for the most points in a head-to-head competition of 4 vs. 4, orange vs. blue. When you’re ready to take the game to the next level, you need to balance your greed for points and eliminations with depositing your collected points in the goal – or risk getting destroyed and losing your valuable points. Cooperation is key!
Available only on PS4 and PC, Kabounce will release in just under three weeks on May 29th with a $15 price tag. For more information on Kabounce, check out the game’s website here.
