About the game

The Crackpet Show is a high-powered hybrid of the bullet-hell shooter and vehicular mayhem with easy-to-understand controls and fluid, physics-driven competition.

In the game, players take on the role of cartoon-like animal gladiators performing in a savage tournament. This post-apocalyptic TV show is extremely popular and is transmitted all around what is left of the World we know. Every participant is treated as a hero just for their very presence in the show.

Champions fight for life with creatures mutated so heavily that they disgust even the beasts themselves, that’s why they’re only used to fighting in the pit with the gladiators. This is not all you can fear. Most places you'll encounter are covered with deadly traps!

Your and your friends’ goal is to defeat as many enemies as possible, closing all that mayhem by conquering bosses. However, this task is almost unachievable for an ordinary rookie, so the competitors have to approach the challenge more than once, developing their skills and equipment in the meantime.

So gear up, invite your friends, and get involved in the most creepy, post-apocalyptic, rogue-like bloodbath!


  • The Show mumst go on: Hemlo. You wamna know what a Crackpets Show is? No problemo! It’s a bizarre (and popular) series that hoomans watched on them noisy boxes. Funmy and weirmd looking petos are doing themselves a killing on arenas. You know what they say. Mess with the Rabbo and you get the stabbo.
  • Ramp up the rampage! He he. You wonder why hoomas don’t wamtch them noisy boxes anymore. They ded. Only we - the mutated and disfigurmed aneemals have remained. And Crackpets Show is still pompular between our spemcies. It’s funny and gory. Me liek.
  • Cute? Hell no. We may look cute a bit but domt call us that. Iz a no no. Butt. If yu thimk about Happy Tree Friends wen wamtching our Crackpets Show. Then we liek. We remember peopool wamching it and this inspired the Crackpets Show in the firmst place.
  • Wee are a Champiomn. As for the Show. It’s like gladiamtor battlez butt better. The pets are fightin a lot. The one who win iz a next Champion. And it gives them many sponsors and fans. Yay! Fame iz everyfin for us in dis distroyed wormld. The pet who complemts a lot of sho-rooms or whole episodes of show also gets perk coins. Perk coins give, equipment get. More equimpment, more win.
  • Sometims frend. Som of them battlez are for frends. Up to 4 frends to be exacto. Butt. When them hack and when them slash all the enemeez, them must fight among friendos as well. Only 1 STAR may remain. But before u can help friends if anyone die. Revive them like in Pet Semetary. Remember this movie? Fun.
  • Promcemdural. Maps are promcemdural so if u wamtch the show a lot u wont get bore. Wow. Such differentiate. Also we have many biomes. There’s grassy lando, there’s snow lando, there’s desert lando. Promducers of the show are really doing them besto so it no bore like evur.
