  • Make a break for it! Battle the grenade-tossing Green Men from Heavy Barrel as they blast through reinforced steel and spill out of the cliffside fortress.
  • Pool Party! Shoot explosive pool balls at your friends in a level inspired by Side Pocket. Sink ‘em all for an extra dose of chaos!
  • Food Fight! Crush your enemies under the enormous weight of falling burger pieces while blasting Pickles, Eggs, and Hot Dogs in the BurgerTime arena.
  • Maze Madness! Navigate a procedurally-generated and fully destructible maze while running from cops, dodging explosive cars, and collecting major coin in the Lock ‘N Chase level.
  • Time to kick some butt! Dodge mad charging bulls, high flying kicks, and a discerning judge’s eye in the Karate Champ arena.
  • Take that to the Bank! Skirt through heavy traffic, roundhouse kicks, and flaming ninjas as you speed boost to your final destination, THE BANK, in the Bad Dudes arena.
