Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars is a vehicle sports game released through the PlayStation Network in North America on October 9, 2008 and in Europe on February 12, 2009.

Gameplay

The game is played by one or more players, local or online, using their controller to hit a football, which is much larger than the car's themselves, into the opposing goal. Each goal gets one point, and whoever has the most points when the timer runs out wins. If both teams are tied when the timer runs out, it goes into sudden death over-time mode, where whoever gets a point first wins. The overtime game mode can theoretically last forever. There are also many various mini games and tournaments.

Every Wednesday (in Europe) and Tuesday and Saturday (in North America) at 8pm GMT and 8pm EST, players have the chance to play against Psyonix in Team Matches in a 2v2 or the occasional 3v3.

Cars

New players have only two cars but there are seven vehicles total, unlocked by finishing mini-game challenges or playing on-line. According to the developers each car has the same speed, strength and agility. However, as the game relies heavily on physics, the subtle differences in the cars leads them to each "behave slightly different." [2]

Updates

In addition to lowering the price to USD$9.99 (GBP £7.99), On December 18, 2008 Psyonix released a free update to the game that fixed numerous netplay-related bugs, refined the online lobby and matchmaking aspects, and added the arena Cosmic.[3]

The latest patch was released in early August 2009. The patch had fixed numerous bugs in the game. It also added two new arenas for the game, Galleon, which is set on a ship sailing the seas on a cold spring night and Stadium, a European style football stadium. [4]
