A downloadable game for Windows

QuadSmash is a frantic 2D arcade game released in 2011 featuring several multiplayer game modes as well as a single-player campaign. Players control crazy-fast vehicles battling against each other in epic match-ups.

Although it was a commercial flop, QuadSmash features an amazingly fun multiplayer Smashball game mode in which 2-4 vehicles play a brutal form of soccer, which I definitely recommend you try when you have friends over.

Check out some Smashball gameplay we recorded and imagine us screaming at one another during the whole thing.

  • Drive a futuristic vehicle, riding upside down and jumping around
  • Emit shock waves to push away and destroy enemies
  • Use your energy grappling hook to swing around and drag objects
  • Dash to the ground, smashing enemies into pieces

The game was developed at Creative Patterns by Elisée Maurer, Etienne Gurrera, Jean-Michel Stenger and Thomas Frick, with music & sound effects by David Soltany, additional art by Jérôme Bourgeois and additional coding by Dimitri Reinhart.

hey guys

i saw your game on youtube on this channel :

im exciting to play this game and i have download it

but i didnt know how to make it work or to run it ):

can please anyone tell me ? 3>


Im having the same problem the installer starts but i dont know if it worked and if it did where is it i tried running the .application no luck i dont get it it looks so good i would love to try it

(1 edit)

I realize that this is a bit late but I tried the installer version. It prompted me for admin credentials to install XNA redistributable and then it stopped. Same when I pressed the launcher button again. 

What works for me is: Going to local files and starting setup.exe or just starting the .application file.
