Progress, game modes, items & power-ups!
In this mode, up to 4 players can join to help keep The Bass from dropping. All players share a common life pool that decreases when The Bass is dropped.

Different area events will randomly occur (with increasing difficulty) as the game progresses. Some implemented events we have are:

  • Contrabass: Makes The Bass bigger, almost thrice as big!
  • BassInSpace: Decreases the Stage's gravity, making The Bass and players jump higher.
  • AllYourBass: Spawns another Bass for each other player in the game.
  • Empathy: Swaps player's colors with each other.
  • Ssab: Inverts controls (Auch!).
  • ChosenOne: A player is selected, during that event, each time the Chosen One slaps the Bass, an extra life will be granted.
  • UJelly: The stage floor shakes up and down.
  • Rave: The light dims, lasers go wild, rave glasses, flares, hilarity ensues.

Robin Versus
In Robin Versus, up to 4 players take turns to slap The Bass. Each turn is selected randomly and is shown by the stage's color. Every time The Bass drops, a life point will be taken from that turn's player.

Players can also collect items and powerups that will spawn around the stage, with increasing rate, which will help them hit The Bass or stop other players from doing so.

SlapKing Versus
In SlapKing Versus, the same item mechanics from Robin Versus are used, but this time, there are no lifes. Players will compete to see who can slap The Bass the most in a limited amount of time. Chaos ensues.

Some items/power-ups that we have are (names are not final):
  • Radius Repel: Spawns a repelling sphere around the player.
  • Plus Speed: Makes the player run faster.
  • One Bass-Up: Get one extra life.
  • Linear Repel: Spawns a repelling wall that travels in a line.
  • Slowing Missile: Each player hit by it will be slowed temporarily.
  • Gravity Increase: Gravity for The Bass is doubled.
  • "Green Shell": Ground missile that bounces at walls.
  • Ice Feet: Other players get slippery feet.
  • Invisible Players: Other players turn invisible (mostly).
  • Pitfall Trap: Places an underground mine that make other players trip.
  • Giantize: Become a giant.

Questions, suggestions and Bass-related names for these events/items are welcome!

Release date: TBA
Gone are the days of imagining you and your friends slapping a bass with wooden boards handled by fit duck-men. Now, it’s still impossible, but with Don’t Drop the Bass, you are a step closer. Cooperate and keep the bass airborne for as long as possible or compete to be the ultimate bass-slapping king.

Don't Drop the Bass is a local, simple multiplayer game where up to 4 players can engage in the following:

Co-op: Everyone tries to keep the bass in the air as long as possible. Random stage events take place, with increasing difficulty.
Robin Vs: Every player keeps the bass in the air during their turn and attacks during other's. Items and powerups spawn randomly to help players get to The Bass or stop other players from doing so.
SlapKing Vs: Whoever slaps the bass the most, wins. Items and powerups are also used here.

- Full controller and keyboard support and combinations (in case you wondered)!

This game is still under development and will change! We will continue adding new features, so keep in touch!
We are open to suggestions, ideas, and hate mail.
