"Whacked!" includes the following key features:
- Bizarre, yet appealing characters. Players meet a variety of contestants, each with their own quirky personality and unique traits, including Otto, the emaciated, narcoleptic dude who lets his recliner do all the work; and Lucy, whose sinfully attractive body is surpassed only by her cunning ability to use it.
- Multiple gameplay modes. Players can choose from Combat Mode, in which players fight each other in a race to collect resources, Chicken mode, which pits a player against a horde of man-eating chickens in a quest to stay alive, or other modes including King of the Hill, Grab 'n' Run, Fragfest and Dodgeball.
- Highly detailed levels. Gamers can do battle in an artic pipeline or clash under a Christmas tree -- there are more than a dozen intense levels (including the kitchen sink) where players can destroy their opponents.
- Vast array of weapons and power-ups. More than 40 weapons and power-ups are at gamers' disposal. Enemies can be blasted with the circus cannon, tossed with the pitchfork, pegged with a staple gun or poked with a shish ka bob -- the choice is up to the player.
