WIPEGROUND Game Beta
Description
Release date: 2015
WIPEGROUND - Race for survival in the most dangerous corners of the galaxy. Pilots control high-speed armed flying cars – Hovers.
Anti-gravity Hover, with powerful system of weapons, is equipped with an impulse motor and generator. On the track, each pilot has something to clear their way with - self-guided missiles and bombs, machine guns and lasers, protective shields and stealth fields, boost, and more.
Participants with a mad craving for speed, love for tough fire-fights and flying at dangerously low altitudes, and their greed leads to a blinding flash of careless beginners.
Fierce races are held on mysterious planets and satellites, space stations, and in abandoned mines of asteroids. Pilots on high-speed Hovers try the strength of their character in incredible conditions, raging atmospheres of the planets and in the vacuum of space.
WIPEGROUND is a race which makes your blood boil and your veins cold, any turn may appear to be the last on the way to glory. Earn credits, make bets, participate in survival races, or just speed races, challenge your rivals to a duel. Pump up your Hover right during the race in the pit stops. Earn even more credits and buy a new Hover in the garage.
Credits are awarded for passing energy barriers and annihilation of rivals’ Hovers. Winning the local tournament allows you to pay for your flight to another corner of the galaxy to the new track and continue your participation in the championship.
The most courageous aces and bounty hunters compete for the title of the Best Pilot in WipeGround Star System. May the best man win! May the force and attention be with you!

Code of Novice Pilots:
GUN - quick-killing gun
LASER - a deadly laser beam
ROCKET - homing missile seeker
MINE - a cascade of gravitational mines
BOMB - a powerful big bomb
INVIS - generation of stealth field around the ship
ARMOR - composite armor
SHIELD - multi-level energy shield
ENGINE - speed, acceleration and boost
GENERATOR - Hover energy provides the operation of: Laser, Invis, Shield, Boost. The excess energy automatically restores the Hover.

Each new race begins with a basic configuration Hover. Slots of upgrades and other Hover types may be purchased between races.
Visiting the pit stop limits your Hover in speed, turns off the fire function, allows to buy upgrades and fully restores the entire ammunition, armor, shields, and energy. Each upgrade type has a fivefold pumping. During the race, each Hover is pumped up to the current level. A fully pumped Hover of level 50 includes 50 slots.
In case of annihilation of a Hover, it is restored in the pit stop, and the pilot loses the progress of the current round, but retains the credits previously earned for the annihilation of rivals.

Is there a release date? So glad enough people voted this up. I'm a Wipeout vet, and there just isn't enough games like this out.

The narrator sold me, his voice better be in the game.

Looks like it belongs on Android rather than next gen hardware... ugh. BUT STILL! I like Wipeout. I like hover racing games with power ups and weapons. Voted UP

Thanks for the reply! Yay!

Hi Nanobang.
Thank you for yes, and we already support controllers.
Nanobang Sep 5, 2014 @ 6:41am 
This game cries out for controller support . . . indeed, looking at the Key posted above, the only tricky bit would be mapping the 5 weapons to be easily and quickly called up without major UI modification. Even there, though, mapping weapons 1 & 2 to directional up and chosen by one or two quck clicks, 3 & 4 to dir. down, and 5 to either dir right or left would seem to be an adequate fix. Just some thoughts there. A yes vote all the same, specifically because you're doing a Linux port.

Le bon vieux souvenir de Wipeout que j'avais découvert (avec Gran Turismo et plein d'autres) sur PS1 m'a troté dans la tête pendant un petit moment et après une longue réflexion sur le sujet, j'ai décidé de voter "Oui".

Sigh, another game that doesn't beats Wipeout. Same old crap like any others...
