Instructions

Players will grab a controller (up to 4) to start the local split screen. One player will be in VR. Each player for the split screen experience will press the A Button to indicate that they are ready.

Once each player is ready the game will begin.

There is a 10 second window where the VR character is unable to see the other players so they can hide. The monster character will be able to start smashing the city and hunting for players.

The Goal

For each player that you throw through the ring on the outside of the play area you will get 5 points and each building you throw will give you 1 point the time left in the match will be displayed on the blimp circling the map. When the time runs out switch seats and the next player can have a turn destroying the city.
