Coffin Dodgers is a comedy kart racer which is now out on the PlayStation 4 and will be launched on Xbox One on Friday, May 6th. The game lets you pick one of seven retirement village residents, each with a pimped-out mobility scooter and various homemade weapons and gadgets.
The game involves mobility-scooter based combat as the OAPs try to avoid being taken by the Grim Reaper and his army of zombies. There’s 2-4 player split screen local multiplayer racing and a 3D open-world ‘Crazy Grandad’ mode, along with a single-player Story Mode. It’s been developed by Milky Tea Studios in Liverpool and published by Wales Interactive.
Coffin Dodgers will cost £9.49 for the PlayStation 4 version and £9.59 for the Xbox One version, with a 10% launch discount for PlayStation Plus members. Not much more to say, really – it’s a kart game with weapons. And without online multiplayer, it’s likely to appeal to a limited audience, but maybe there are some care home residents who might be inspired to pick up a copy.
