Just when you thought we couldn't get another kart racer, here comes Coffin Dodgers to give you yet another alternative to the rather lovely Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Wales Interactive and Milky Tea Studios are bringing their dark comedic kart racer to the Switch eShop on 13th March 2018.
Coffin Dodgers sees life in the slow lane become a fast and furious race for your very soul. In the game you get to take on the role of one of seven quirky retirement village residents, each racing on their very own pimped-up mobility scooters, armed with a variety of upgradable homemade weapons and gadgets to take on anything the Grim Reaper and his army of zombies throw at them.
The game offers a two-toffour local multiplayer mode where you can actively battle and knock your friends from their mobility scooters, get tangled up in epic crashes and cause mayhem. Players can also experience the 3D open-world 'Crazy Granddad' mode where you race against the clock in the entire Sunny Pines district.
The Road Rash-style player-to-player combat features wacky weapons and collectible destructive power-ups to stop your mates in their tracks. Players are advised to watch their frail backs however as the dreaded EMP powered defibrillator is never too far away!
Let us know if you plan to pick up this geriatric kart racer in the middle of March with a comment below!
Probably the best name for a game yet.
I'm always open to more racers but the name Wales Interactive doesn't exactly fill me with confidence. I associate them with ambitious games that are crap to play . Saying that, they are just the publishers here and this actually does look quite fun. I loved Wacky Races on the Dreamcast and the art style of this kind of reminds me of that.
I take that back, it has a 36% rating on Metacritic. My opinion of Wales Interactive stands. They make and publish crap games, plus their website doesn't work.
This I think already released on the PS4 to meh reviews a couple of years ago.
Do not waste your money on this... it's bad. I played it on PS4 and it's one of the worst kart racers I've ever played.
Not a good one, at least on PC
Watched a YouTuber play it, it looks really bad. Madagascar Kartz bad.
@NewAdvent The shovelware was on Switch from day one,with Vroom in the night sky.
Is it worse than Modnation Racers? I didn't enjoy that game on PS3 at all..
@Hikingguy Obviously this game is targeting the elderly with that flashy scooter, who else is buying this game?
@OorWullie omg you took the words out my mouth, as soon as I see their name I stay away. The quality of don’t knock twice is still terrible and I don’t care what anyone says, They are all about crap ported content for a quick buck.
turns off hearing aid & goes back to watching ducks fight over bread
Graphically the game looks more like it would belong on a PS2/Gamecube. Definitely will not be buying this one.
Man if only there's a recycling bin for shovelware on the eShop.
Oh god no...
I don't care about the quality of the game itself but the name is hilarious!
That one should probably stay dead and buried.
The game deserves fame because of its name
Another game for the 'bad racing games' list.
@YeshaYahu5417 One million times worse.. do not buy... 1/ 10 for me.
Looks like the worst racer I've ever played: South Park Rally (N64)
I can't stress this enough.. This game is just so so so terrible. Got it on the ps4 when it was on sale for like 3 bucks. Even my kids could recognize it was crap. Avoid at all costs!!
LOL no one liked or bought this game on PS4 and that system doesn't even have a good kart racer. Why they think anyone wants to buy this game on Switch when they can buy MK8 Deluxe.
Where is Crash Team Racing HD or that Sonic game?. I want another real kart racer like MK8 this generation, not this trash.
No, just no
Apparently this game offers the quickest platinum on PS4. It's also quite bad from what I heard, literally the only people who bought it were die hard trophy hunters.
can we place have a 3rd person arcade racing game with REAL CARS? There is ONLY Drive Club, this is so weird!
My god this game looks terrible. The graphics are mobile level and it has zero new ideas. I know zombies are in so let’s throw them in to try and get it to sell. Lazy trash
Why wouldn't you upload a game trailer in 60fps? (AAA companies are guilty of this as well). You want to show off the game in its best possible state, not make it look like it has a poor framerate.
YouTube gamers are a dime a dozen, and yet they know 60fps is the only way to go when uploading.
I know this is probably awful, but I'm still glad that a Hoveround racing game actually exists.
Played this on Steam a while ago. Definitely gotta with most people here that it’s piece of doodoo. Luckily for me, I had gotten it for free. 😛
I love the puns, but that game looks awful.
games like this are for platforms that cant play Mario Kart, I dont see many people buying this on a Switch
I heard this is pretty bad. Avoid!
