Before taking part in the games, players get to choose from 20 differently skinned characters. Each cube is cutely decorated as either some themed character or smart pop culture reference, like Captain Smirk, who is clearly a fan of Star Trek. These cubes really give life and personality to the game, supporting the already crazy and entertaining host, who comes off as a b-rate Mark Hamill-esque joker. The games themselves are equally charming, though limited in variety. There are not many games, but a few stand out. Cool-aid sees every competitor fighting for an air-condition spot on the map, lest they catch on fire. All throughout this event, as well as the others, players can punch each other to keep a comfortable distance and a commanding position. Another favorite of mine is a game that has everyone race to eat pies that spawn on the level. If you get too skinny, it’s game over! Others are more survival style, and have objectives like avoiding falling totems, dodging bars to stay atop a podium, and avoiding falling floor panels, which are more the standard affair. In the end though it is all worth it to compete in the gauntlet, which is a fast paced final event where everyone races to the right, as deadly traps not only follow but wait along the whole path until only one competitor is alive. It is a great pay off for working together since that is the only way to get to compete in this game. Aside from this tournament mode, you can create your own show with whatever mini-games and the games particular maps that you prefer.
