I can't say I've had too much exposure to the sport of dodgeball growing up, though I suppose it isn't a very English sport. There was the odd game in P.E. throughout school, tossing old, worn-out footballs at each other's faces even though we were expressly told to go for the legs. What started off as a light-hearted game played by a bunch of kids with smiles on their faces often quickly devolved into a bunch of savages launching projectiles at that one child who was rather good at dodging but not so good at throwing. Looking back, I'm not sure I've ever actually played dodgeball; instead I've partaken in a series of rituals to eliminate the weak.
Stikbold! A Dodgeball Adventure is a dodgeball game with an entertaining story mode that supports local co-op and multiplayer. As you play through the story you will unlock characters and stages to play the multiplayer or quick match mode with. Characters only look different and do not have unique skills or attributes, stages have their own look and can have their own unique hazards, such as waves moving through the court on the beach stage, or they might have cover to hide behind. The story mode has boss battles as well as normal matches which can change things up. The game controls very well and you have the ability to dodge, pass, catch, and, of course, throw the ball at your opponents. It's a very enjoyable game with the only things holding it back being the lack of online play, no variety between the characters, and the story mode not lasting very long.
