New sports game idea


#1

So I was thinking about what to do for my first game. Since there aren’t many sports games on the forum, I decided to give it a try. After some thinking, I decided to try something out of the ordinary. There is a sport not many people are familiar with called Slamball. It combines elements of basketball, football, hockey and gymnastics. It’s played on a regular basketball court, but the similarities stop there. There are 4 trampolines at each end of the court, used to propel players into the air to score. Slam dunks and regular 3 pointers are worth 3 points, while any other shot from inside the 3 point line is worth 2. Any pushing and shoving is legal except tackling and shoving from behind. Please tell me what you think!


Give me an idea for a game and I'll make it

Whoa whoa whoa whoa… If it’s like hockey I’m in!


#3

if you like hard body checks then this is definitely for you!


#4

here’s a brief video about the basics of slamball


#5

This sounds great. I think there are not enough sports games on CoG. If it’s kind of in the style of SLAMMED! that would be awesome, but an original idea would be better.


#6

It will be similar to slammed in terms of character creation and background. Then again, I’ve only played the demo, so the overall game will be pretty much original.


#7

The demo will probably include character creation, hometown selection, positions, and a brief explanation of the rules of the sport.


#8

Sounds awesome. I remember watching this on tv, don’t remember much about it but looked really cool.


#9

Yea, the video was awesome. Best of luck.


#10

Sounds awesome especially since it mixes two of my favorite sports football and basketball


#11

How popular would slamball be? Would it be like football or at it’s current level of popularity


#12

The game will probably be set in the near future, when SlamBall has skyrocketed in popularity and rivals baseball, hockey and even regular basketball to some degree.

I would enjoy playing a game like this. Funny story, back when I was in my early teens I asked my parents if my friends and I could dig holes in the ground so we could play legit slam ball. Instead we had to play with a different set of rules and three trampolines on flat ground.

Wow…head over to LA and try out for a SlamBall team if you really want to. I would suggest the MOB. Sean “Inches” Jackson is one of the best (and shortest) players in the game.
