Description: Coffin Dodgers sees you take on the role of saving one of seven quirky retirement village residents, each racing for their soul in “pimped up” mobility scooters against none other than the Grim Reaper himself. Our old heroes are armed with a variety of homemade weapons and gadgets to take on anything the Grim Reaper and his Zombie army may throw at them. Can you survive the retirement village?

Players must battle it out against The Grim Reaper and other competitors over a 13 race Championship, where only the most skilled racer will survive. There are 4 distinct areas within the Sunny Pines Retirement Community, each featuring it’s own mini tournament in which your rank against other competitors will ensure you progress to the next stage; however, finish bottom of the pile and the Reaper gets to take your soul. The final race takes place over each of the 4 areas in a straight shoot out between you and the Grim Reaper.

Review: For those who don’t know a ‘Coffin Dodger’ is an elderly person trying to overstay their worth on planet earth. Sounds like a disrespectful thing to call elderly people to me, but that is the title of the game. This is not some social care app it is a cartoon style racing game in which you get to choose from seven biddies and their “pimped up” mobility scooters. Each one has their own scooter and their own homemade weapons and gadgets. Then you have to take on other racers, the Grim Reaper and also his army of evil helpers all trying to survive.

There are 13 race Championships to play as well as up to 4 players split-screen racing. Can you outrace the Grim reaper? If you are, you will need to upgrade your scooter and be the fastest of all the elderly racers. Having said that the VR element that we are reviewing this for only has one track at the moment, but with some good feedback more are sure to follow.

At the moment (at time of press) there is only one track available for the “VR content” which is a downloadable extra, but the rest are soon to follow. While it is a little nauseating at the moment I do have high hopes for this game as it plays like a dream and could offer Mario Kart fans something in VR. It’s a good game anyway and in normal mode (not in VR) you have lots of tracks and characters to choose from, as well as the multiplay options giving it more replay value. Definitely, one to keep an eye on.
