Description

Tap Tournament is a top down, multiplayer, single device game for tablet and mobile with an emphasis on intuitive, competitive, social gameplay. In the game, players have their reaction times tested in a magical contest of tap mastery. Each player controls their chosen character from one corner of the screen, and is tasked with keeping their character safe from a ball of magical energy that is flying dangerously from corner to corner. The player taps their character to swing its weapon and deflect the magical projectile towards another player, with the projectile getting faster as the rally continues. Adding to the mayhem, players battle for mystical power up gems that restore health and change the properties of the ball, with unpredictable and awesome effects. With a super simple mechanic and an emphasis on multiplayer, anyone can play, so grab a copy and settle your differences with Tap Tournament!

History

Having started work at So Good Studios just out of University as a self-funded start up, the team decided that they needed to develop a game that could be completed to a high standard in a small amount of time. Tap Tournament grew from a concept the team had previously created at University, and to them it seemed to be the perfect fit; Simple controls, short gameplay sessions and an easy to learn mechanic. The team were looking at releasing Tap Tournament five weeks after beginning development, but after the game's success at the Big Indie Pitch in Brighton it was decided that it would be a good idea to iterate it for another month, based on the feedback it received at the event.
