SMU Guildhall capstone game Goofballs


Goofballs is a physics-based local-multiplayer casually competitive soccer party game where players roll, dash, and ground pound to score goals.

Play locally against friends or the A.I. in 1v1 and 4-player free-for-all matches. Players can choose from the preset Classic, Chaos, and Competitive game modes, or they can create their own unique gameplay experience in Custom mode.
