Wacky Bash is a multiplayer game where you compete against other players for arena championship! Use your weapon and its Ultimate Attack to bash your opponents off the arena, and try not to get knocked out yourself. Collect gifts with awesome power-ups to gain an advantage over your foes, but beware; if you’re not fast enough, someone else will grab them and you’ll be in trouble.
Each match lasts 5 minutes. Whoever has the most knockouts at the end will be crowned the champion!
Your weapon’s Ultimate Attack requires energy. You gain energy by bashing your foes with the basic attack. Once you have collected enough energy you can use your Ultimate Attack.
Your weapon’s Ultimate Attack delivers a much bigger punch than the basic attack. Use Ultimate Attack to knock your foe off the arena.
Skills are useful for feints and dodges. There are 5 skills to choose from, but only one can be equipped in any given match:
Leap – A really long jump. Useful for getting back to the arena if you’re about to fall off.
Roll – Executes a roll that lets you get away from your foes.
Phase – Lets you teleport a short distance through foes and thin obstacles. Useful for dodging Ultimate Attacks and getting behind your opponents.
Shadow – Makes you invisible for a short while. Also removes any negative effects you might be suffering.
Play Dead – Makes you immune to everything for a short while.
When you take too much damage you lose control. Use your Recovery ability to un-stun yourself and get back to the game.
Recovery has a 20 second cooldown, so use it wisely.
Tip: Combine a well timed Recovery and a double-jump followed by a Leap or Roll to get you back on to the arena after being knocked off the edge.
You can collect and equip different power-ups from gifts scattered around the arena:
Tripwire – A spiky wire that throws enemies in the air when it hits them.
Bomb – Throws enemies around you into the air. Takes time to explode once activated.
Frenzy – Move and hit faster, gain more energy from basic attacks.
Gas – Causes everyone around you to start hallucinating. Great for confusing your foes.
Sabotage – Lets you temporarily change the arena; for example by breaking the floor under your foes feet.
Enemies’ power-ups and Ultimate Attacks can cause unwanted temporary effects:
Burning – You are on fire, but not in a good way. You can still use your skills and attack, but you can’t control your movement.
Confusion – Your controls are inverted. Forward is back, Left is right. Nothing makes sense.
Electrified – You are stunned due to electrocution.
Hallucination – Everything is all wobbly and nauseating. Often an effect of the Gas power-up.
Slow – You. Are. Slow
Tip: If you have the shadow skill, activate it to get rid of any unwanted status effects.
