Dunk Lords for PC and XONE is a sport game featuring a crazy variant of basketball. It has been developed by Story Fort studio led my Andy Hull – a man who worked as a main programmer for Spelunky HD.
Developers from Story Fort took inspiration from unusual sport games of 90’s, especially NBA Jam series. Instead of classic basketball, Dunk Lords for PC and XONE lets us take part in brutal matches, in which two teams made of five players each compete in quick and bloody games. There are sixteen players to choose from, and every one of them has unique skills. We can find both human and weird characters, like humanoid bear and mutated tomato.
Dunk Lords doesn’t bother with realism. Players can attack each other and smacking opponents is sometimes as important as throwing a ball to the basket. As if that wasn’t enough to heat up matches, playgrounds themselves are filled with traps and obstacles.
Dunk Lords offers a campaign, which can be played alone or by two people in cooperation mode and shows the story of talented player named Slice, who tries to win local championship. There is also an arcade mode that can be used to play single matches, either versus A.I. or in multiplayer for up to four people.
