Gumboy Tournament is an arcade game that combines single player, multiplayer and team-match – all in one. Once again the player can explore many fantasy levels, great graphics, a lot of environment interaction and light and particle effects.

Once again the player can explore many phantasy levels, great graphics, a lot of environment interaction and light and particle effects. However this time extra features have been added: finally you can compete against your friends over the net or even just on a computer without internet.

It's exactly the high amount of environment interaction, fast paced action and physical simulation that makes the game so fun when up to nine gumboys meet on one level. There is a lot that the new Gumboy title offers. As usual the visual environment has great looking graphics and is we think highly original. The same goes for the sounds and catchy game soundtrack.

Players can expect 20 sophisticated stages and 4 different game modes. They can compete in the furious ”Capture the flag“ mode, chase score points generating star, collect diamonds or race through control points. All this is played out in highly complex levels full of spiral chutes, fountains, water-ways or even outer space, with planets and sudden gravity changes. There are also many special bonuses – be it the well-known magnetizer and other highly unique features not yet seen in any other arcade game.

Then in addition there's more that expands Gumboy Tournament. A whole new dimension of fun opens up in team-match mode. Players can join teams that can compete against each other – it is even possible for up to 4 players to play on the same computer representing the same team while taking part in an online game. Naturally there's a single player mode as well. The player can go through a campaign or enter at any level and compete against up to 8 gumboy bots.
