Choosing between Eli the All-Rounder, Trixie the Tactician, Pronto The Rogue, or Kord, The Tank. Each round is 5 minutes long, and the team that scores the most match points at the end of the round is the winner.

“Slugterra combines all the characteristics that we consider pillars of the work we produce, originality, skill and most importantly, genuine fun. We wouldn’t have been able to create such an engaging experience if it weren’t for the foundation of characters developed by Ken Faier and the Wildbrain team. It is a major milestone for us to have the experience available via Hologate’s Arena platform and for Slugterra to join their already impressive library of games.” Dan Fill, President, Dark Slope Studios.
