'Plain Sight' Explains Its Variety Of Game Modes - Screens

Plain Sight is a multiplayer game using Microsoft's XNA development tools. The premise in Plain Sight is quite simple, you are a sword wielding robot, your goal is to grow bigger by collecting points through killing other robots and self-destructing to cash in those points, preferably destroying more robots in the blast.

Plain Sight is a multiplayer arcade game set across 13 space-themed maps and features a unique twist on the standard Deathmatch mechanic. Playing as your average ninja robot about town, you begin each game with a sword and a quantum of energy. Leaping across each level leaving a bright trail in your wake, you must destroy other ninja robots to steal their energy. As you get more energy you change colour and get bigger, stronger and brighter. This is where the catch comes in! You only get to convert your hard earned energy into game-winning points if you blow yourself up. The more opponents you take out in the explosion, the higher the multiplier, the higher the score!

Respawn and repeat!!

First up are ‘Deathmatch’ and ‘Team Deathmatch’ where players have to battle up to 20 robot opponents for their energy. The more energy they accumulate the bigger, better and more badass they become, but this also makes them more of a target. To convert the energy into round winning points players have to blow themselves up, with each enemy taken out in the blast multiplying the score. Risk and reward baby!

Next, the uniquely titled ‘Ninja! Ninja! Botzilla!’ has a team of tiny ninjas work together to bring the gargantuan Botzilla down to size. Easier said than done!

‘Lighten Up’ is a time-based turf war mode in which players must detonate on a glowing target area with as much energy as possible; the best detonation collects the points for that round.

Rounding things off there is the familiar favourite ‘Capture the Flag’, the usual rules still apply but with that self-destructive Plain Sight panache!

That should keep you all busy for awhile!
