Disc is a fun futuristic sport game that is reminiscent of the Disc game in Bally Midway's Tron arcade game, one of my personal favorites. You can be played against the computer or another human player. The object is to throw a disc or discs at the other player and try to hit him with it, thus draining his life meter. Once the life meter is exhausted, the player dies. The fun is that you can also kill your opponent by disintegrating the tiles that comprise the platform he stands on, until he has nowhere left to stand and falls to his death. You do this by throwing disc at the wall behind your opponent's back. |
Another novel feature that makes the game very interesting is that nobody owns the disc-- it changes color depending on who is throwing it. If you successfully deflect a hit with your shield, the disc will change to your color. This color determines who "owns" the disc at that point and whose damage it will inflict when it hits a person.
With excellent concept, fun gameplay, and smooth animations, Disc is a must have for all fans of the movie, and anyone interested in unique sport games. Thumbs up!
