Sumotori Dreams - a hilarious 3D sumo game in 87kB
« on: April 23, 2007, 05:47:21 PM »
Hi!

I've just found a very small, but very funny game - it is called Sumotori Dreams, weighs 87 kiB and was the winner of the Breakpoint 2007 96K game competition.
It features two artificially intelligent sumo robots (at least one of which is to be controlled by a human player) and a quite realistic physics engine. The best part is not the battle, though. As the author describes it:
Quote
The bout starts when both players touch the ground, and ends when a player falls to the ground or steps outside the circle. [...] Then players stand up and bend for greeting. (may be difficult)

Well, just see for yourself ;)

Man, that is the funniest thing I have seen in a long time  ;D ;D ;D ;D

The best part is after a bout, when you sit back and wait for them to bow to each other...

Thanks for the heads up on this one.
