Battery Jam is a fun arcade game, prepared for the local four-player multiplayer mode. The game may evoke some associations with the famous Bomberman - it is characterized by high speed and simple, but giving many possibilities, rules. Halseo studio is responsible for preparing the title.
The Battery Jam game takes place in the arena (from the so-called isometric perspective) observed from above, divided into square fields. The game consists in taking over fields by moving around them and detonating explosives - explosions caused by a given player (or a given hero, if we play with a computer) change the color of the fields within their range. It is worth noting that the characters have special attacks and ways of moving, allowing for example, to move quickly from one end of the map to the other. The game is very dynamic and a bit chaotic, but a prudent player can try to plan their moves.
Each game takes place over a certain period of time - the one with the most fields at the end of the game wins (or eliminates enemies - depending on whether you choose Classic Deathmatch or Territorial Mayhem mode). The clashes can take place on one of several boards. Players can also customize some aspects of the game (e.g. the length of rounds).
In Battery Jam we can play alone (against bots - several levels have been prepared) or with others, but the game has been developed primarily for the local multiplayer mode (Free-for-All and Team Play modules are available).
Battery Jam has quite attractive, three-dimensional graphic design. The artistic style of this production is quite simple, but very colorful, so it fits well with the dynamic gameplay with friends.
