Thetaball is an authentic digital sport with rich, physics-based gameplay and lifelike AI. Each of the game's 256 robotic players is a unique individual, created by a process of simulated evolution. Because the bots have co-evolved within a complex physical environment, their behaviors are diverse, robust, and lifelike.
In the single-player game, your task is to field a team of robotic athletes in order to advance through a series of progressively more challenging leagues, earning as many coins as you can along the way. You can remotely control any of the bots on your team, or let them play on their own.
In the local-multiplayer game, 2-8 players choose up sides, with AI-controlled bots filling in the empty slots.
- Earn coins, develop your team, and advance through the leagues.
- Bet on individual matches or buy in to a tournament. (Simulated gambling features are for entertainment purposes only. Coin rewards cannot be cashed out or exchanged for real currency.)
- Monitor your progress with an assortment of statistical and financial reports.
- Improve your skills by engaging in a variety of practice drills.
