Mad Machines is a brutal ball sport game in which players pilot magnetic robot gladiators in a fight for survival, honor and mastery over a lethal spike-ball. Partner with your teammates and score goals. Unleash your aggressive tendencies and beat up your buddies in intense melee fighting. Mad Machines is currently available as an Early Access title on the Discord store. Come for the fighting, stay for the community and offer your best feedback because we’re just wild enough to use it!

Master one of 3 distinct metal-plated gladiator models, outscore your foes and bang your head to a victory march.

Just remember, enter this arena at your own risk.

Machines: Gladiators, Magnetized Machines. Machineheads.

  • Machines are your axe-swinging, melee-mashin’, stamina suckin’, bad attitude robots that players control. Pilot these magnetized machines and smack the enemy like the little loser it is because every hit will be different from the last, thanks to the game’s intelligent reaction system (We’d call it IRS but that’s not the type of SEO we want in America).
  • There are three types of machines, so pick your favorite and play with them all.
    • Chopper: Get a move on with this quick, light attacking gladiator.
    • Ship: Balanced like an hourglass, but this midfielder-style machine is tougher than a cheap steak
    • Viking: Smash and bash with this brutish enforcer but don’t expect to win a foot race
  • Sure, they’re a little rough around the edges, but there’s a real depth to each Machinehead when you get to know ‘em. The best players will unleash Street Fighter-style combos, aerial moves that will make a fighter pilot take notes, highlight reel knockdowns and use the magnet system to set off some teamwork that feels more like a chain reaction.

Be Aggressive:

  • Capitalize on the game’s real time physics that offer dynamic ball striking and 3D melee fighting - or get crushed like a wimp.
  • Assault opposing machines with precision so whether it’s a fast tap attack, windup or overcharged hit, each damaging blow delivers a feel-good moment.
  • Get good or get spiked in a variety of competitive, team-based modes because piloting a machine isn’t an overnight success story.

Every time you go away, I take a piece of you with me:

  • Armor (or blocks) is what give your machine health and if you run out of health, one well-timed hit can blow you to pieces.
  • Watch your machines’s health degrade as you get smacked around and lose blocks or better yet, smash the other team and take their blocks to heal up.
  • Your machine gets dismantled when it’s in the opposing goal zone so shoot fast or get rekt.
  • When an opposing machine is destroyed, any parts that haven’t already been collected go away so scoop, smash, then score.

Get spike-balled:

  • Manipulate the spike-ball with an arcing swing and magnet system to make “OMG” passes or soul-crushing goals
  • Hit the ball with enough force to trigger spikeball mode to score goals or rough up any machine dumb enough to get in the way.
  • Magnetize the ball for better control both on the ground and in the air
