Knockout! is a multiplayer only game. You need to play Knockout! with others.
Knockout! is designed to provide you with the easiest cross-platform experience, so that you and your friends can exploit our simple game mechanic by creating your own Knockout! rules.
OFFLINE: In its simplest form, Knockout!'s Offline mode, offers any number of players to engage in Free For All, or Team Play games. Players can individually select their preferred color, or team color, from a predefined set. The Offline mode requires a manual countdown, or announcement, for each player to start their game. Once started, Knockout! uses the devices' motion sensors to determine sudden movement or jostling of a player's device. If it senses a sudden movement, the player gets Knocked Out! of the round. Each player is provided with the amount of time they stayed in the round, in minutes and seconds. That's it! Simple. Clean. Lots of ways to create your own rules and games.
Maybe you like bumper games, or running games, or pick up sticks, or egg drops, or obstacle courses, or hide-n-seek, or ... well, you get the notion.
ONLINE: Knockout!'s online mode is pretty cool. We wanted to see if we could come up with an innovative way to connect localized mobile devices without user registration of any sort. Harder than we thought. Online mode currently supports up to five (5) players in Free For All, and up to eight (8) players (max 4v4) in Team Play. Wifi and 4G work best, and 3G will work if not heavily congested.
The Online mode is very similar to the Offline mode with these exceptions.
One player gets designated the host of each round.
The host controls closing lobbies and starting games.
Winners are notified when all others are Knocked Out!
Location services and game networking are only active in online mode. Game networking is disengaged after each online match.
WARNING: Please play responsibly. While play testing, we had some wonderfully outrageous incidents of "how not to play". Needless to say, we do not want, nor do we condone, rough and tumble play that may result in damage to, or destruction of, your device and/or personal property, and/or personal bodily injury. We are not responsible in any way for how you may choose to use Knockout!.
