Game Concept (V1.0).doc
BattleLaX is an action-packed lacrosse game for the PC that
uses a custom game engine to thrust players into a one-of-a-kind
3D arena where the rules are left at the door.
The game play for BattleLaX was inspired by the Sega Genesis
games “Mutant League Hockey” and “Mutant
In BattleLaX, you take control of a team of lacrosse players
to score goals and eliminate the opposition. Each team has
a roster of 20 players – 2 goalies, and 18 others, while
only 6 are on the field at a time – 1 goalie and 5 others.
Players chase the ball, attempt to score goals, and attack
any opponents in the way. Injured players remain on the field
until a stoppage of play, at which point they are dragged
off, and a substitution must be made.
Core Game Play
BattleLaX is unique in that there are no other available lacrosse
games. BattleLaX was inspired by the Mutant League Sports
series. Many core game play elements from the original Mutant
League series will remain intact. In a 3D arena, players maneuver
their sprite around the field towards the ball in an attempt
to score goals and win the game. Opponents will attack the
ball carrier and try to score goals as well. Each player has
a limited amount of health and will die once it has depleted.
Players can pass the ball between team-mates, shoot towards
the goal, and attack others while on defence.
BattleLaX will supply characters with a full range of lacrosse
game play abilities. Characters will have multi-
movement as well as the ability to pass, shoot, defend/check,
jump and change character.
Enemy and non-controlled sprites will have basic artificial
intelligence to allow their
pursuit of the ball and zoning when not in possession of the ball.
Game Music / Sound Effects
The convincing soundtrack and
sound effects in BattleLaX will enhance the
setting and provide realism.
BattleLaX is a 3D extreme sports game with battle elements
incorporated for arcade-like play.
Target platform will be a Windows-based PC running the latest
version of Microsoft’s DirectX (V9).
