Doom Dome Battle is a video game series developed by Dark Heart Games and published by Fantendo. It is a fighting game in similar fashion as Mortal Kombat, Tekken and Dead or Alive. There are two games in the franchise, both of them having a large cast of characters. Each character has their own story within a giant chapter by chapter story.
- Doom Dome Battle is the first game in the series which was released in 2016. It introduces the large cast of playable characters who reside in Wildefort. There is a huge catastrophe which causes a giant war raging on in Wildefort. Demons enter the surface, extraterrestrials invade Earth, robots turn against humans and mutants roam around. A dome is place around Wildefort to prevent things from getting out of hand, through the game you follow several connected stories of the characters. This game also features guest characters from other games on Fantendo.
- Doom Dome Battle 2 is the sequel of the first game which takes place around roughly 1 year after the events of the first. The story of many characters continue after they seemed to have ended in the previous, wheras others finish empty plot points in their story and/or profile. The game also introduces a new species, Witch (although males are classified as Warlock), and introduces quite some new characters. Some of the bosses from previous game are promoted to playable, wheras some playable characters from the first game were cut as result. Unlike the first installment this one doesn't make use of guest characters (although Pixel, Count Botis and Ciara appear in other content of Dark Heart Games as well).
Doom Dome Battle is a fighting game in which players control characters with different fighting styles and special attacks, engaging in one-on-one combat to deplete their opponent's life gauge. The game features 2.5D graphics; movement is restricted to a two-dimensional plane, while the characters and backgrounds are rendered in a three-dimensional fashion. Each match consists of a single round with each player bearing two life bars.
The stages, based on various locations that appear in the story mode and are all locations inside of the dome in which Wildefort is trapped. And although being a singular location it varies very much in environment. Some stages even feature interactive environments. If an opponent is hit with a heavy attack near a corner of the arena, it launches them, triggering a transition animation and taking the fight to a new section of the stage. Each section also contains objects that characters can interact. Players have the option to turn off interactive elements and stage transitions.
The Story mode is split into several chapters. As the narrative plays out, the player swaps between different characters. It is the single player campaign along with Arcade mode in which one can choose a character and fight a series of battles. The other two modes are Multiplayer and Online. Playing through any of the game modes, including online matches with optional goal objectives, will net the player experience points that may be used to unlock alternate costumes, music, concept art, and other rewards.
Each character has a set of button combo's for their special attacks, but of course their specials attacks work different. Each character also has a Doom Attack which is their most powerful attack which pulls the opponent into a cinematic and deals massive damage on them if the right action is performed. These actions vary from pressing the correct combination on the control pad, spinning the analog stick, tapping to fill up a bar and timing to press the correct button. The Doom Attack Gauge is filled up by successfully performing combo's.
There are different species in the game which give different advantages in the game. However for duo's consisting out of different species and characters with multiple species only one can be selected before entering a fight.
