    JOLT is a fast paced, racing party game.

    The game at its core is a competitive platformer that's all about maintaining momentum with skillful navigation. The players compete to be the last robot standing. Using a charged burst of speed called the JOLT, and an array of different objects in the environment; your goal is to outperform or outright sabotage the other racers. Eliminated players are down but not out through the use of the VOID, a random Sabotage Power-Up that allows players to initiate revenge and change the outcome of the race!

    Key Features:
    -JOLT - A charged burst of speed that can effect certain objects
    - VOID - Sabotage Power-Ups from post-elimination
    - Local Multiplayer racing, up to FOUR players
    - Chaotic, fast paced rounds
    - Skill and Timing based gameplay
    - Multiple Tracks
    - Multiple Game Modes
    - Create your own Robot

    The JOLT is a player's primary utility to winning the race. It has 3 stages of charge, each one taking longer to store but each allowing you to shoot considerably further. If the player can time its use correctly; they can use it just before a curve to shoot up a wall or JOLT through an obstacle. Many short cuts in the levels are JOLT dependent.

    Once eliminated, a player has the opportunity to execute the VOID. After punching in the correct sequence, the VOID player is gifted a random Power-Up to inflict mass-disruption to the existing racers.

    The game features multiple Game Modes; Racer is the standard and most game modes are based off this, such as Light Mode (where the level is dark and the leading player has a light attached to them).

    Jolt Family Robot Racer attempts to add a competitive edge to the platforming formula, unfortunately a lack of progression and content holds back already lacklustre gameplay. With little to offer it's hard to recommend the game to anyone in particular but there's something promising about the concept of racing in a platforming style.
