Smash ‘N’ Survive Seeks to Overhaul Vehicular Combat

The simulation industry has long been closely associated with game technologies and history seems to be repeating itself: India’s number one simulation development company, Zen Technologies Limited, has decided to venture into game development and digital publishing with Version2Games Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of Zen Technologies Limited. Our vision is to put India on the console gaming map.

I am thrilled to announce Version2Games’ first title Smash ‘N’ Survive, coming to PlayStation Network for $14.99. The core gameplay of Smash ‘N’ Survive revolves around vehicle combat — it seems we’re in the midst of quite a vehicle-combat revival! But Smash ‘N’ Survive features several innovations such as a physics-based tornado into which you can push your enemies. This tornado is not the only environmental weapon: You’ll find catapults, crushers and other hazards scattered around the maps, and you can use them to annihilate your opponents.

Smash ‘N’ Survive stands out from the rest because it brings melee weapons that are best suited for a vehicle combat. We’re talking brutal plungers, blades, saws and geekier fare like magneto repulsor, flame throwers, and sonic weapons. You won’t find any run-of-the-mill rocket launchers or machineguns here! Smash ‘N’ Survive isn’t mindless fun, either, and you won’t get far without a solid strategy in place. Not all the weapons will inflict direct damage, as some will throw opponents or topple them, leaving them open for your next attack.

The game features 10 maps ranging from small arenas to huge levels and more than 30 selectable concept cars. The campaign mode features 19 missions, each with primary and secondary objectives. On successful completion of the primary objective, you’ll earn a bounty, unlock new cars, new game modes, and new maps and modes for versus mode.

It has been our goal to create a game that we actually wanted to play, and we wanted to include aspects of territory control, survival, bomb planting and team deathmatch in vehicle games so our game is full of these missions which are not too common in vehicle combat games. Most of the missions revolve around these themes but there are some others like derby, checkpoint race, escorting your mate, killing the convoy, chases, and more.

Finally, the Versus mode will give you hours of fun. When we invited people to try out the game, many of them spent four or five hours in the Versus mosh pit. I also want to note that Smash ‘N’ Survive offers a 100% family friendly game experience.

We haven’t mentioned all of the coolest things this game has to offer, so watch this space for more. In the meantime, have a look at our launch trailer to see some of the major features of the game.

  • stupid no ones going twisted metal comes out next week why put a game out so much like tm so close together

  • I would have to agree with the above poster…. But I can see why people would buy this if they are not going to buy twisted metal… However, my question is will there be a demo?

  • “it seems we’re in the midst of quite a vehicle-combat revival!”
    “You won’t find any run-of-the-mill rocket launchers or machineguns here!”
    “I also want to note that Smash ‘N’ Survive offers a 100% family friendly game experience.”

    I see what you did there =P

  • PS3 player -TWISTED METAL and Smash n Survive
    Xbox-Smash and Survive
    hey atleast car vehicular combat is making its comeback.

  • ZEN incorporated in 1993, is a pioneer in the design, development and manufacture of world class, state-of-the-art training simulators.

    very interesting These are not the people who make ZEN PINBALL!! reminds me a lot of Destruction Derby on PS1.. The good old DAYZ….

  • I appreciate that it’s family friendly. I had no intention of buying Twisted Metal. Ever.

  • This game actually looks like it could be more fun than Twisted Metal. Depending on the reviews, I would pick this up when it goes on sale and that might even be before I score a copy of TM since playing the beta/demo of TM I decided that that game is a $20 dollar bargain bin purchase at best.

    Check out the latest Twisted Metal blog entry here, posted just a short while ago. Goes into detail about some of the depth in the game. I agree the actual game itself doesn’t do a great job explaining that depth which would make it feel like a low value product.


  • actually feel it looks better than twisted metal

  • Finally a cool looking downloadable title. We, or I, welcome India to the console gaming world. Just no Indian food please. My stomach cannot handle it. But seriously when does it come to PSN?

  • Wow, this looks amazing. Though, for $15… I’m gonna save my money for now and wait until PSN puts it on sale. Idk about $15, but it really does look like an interesting game. :)

    Yeah, any word on a possible demo? :P

  • i’m picking up twisted metal day one but this looks super sweet too. not sure if i just missed it but what is the release window?

  • also, 10 bucks seems a bit more reasonable but we’ll see what i think once i see some more footage… or maybe a demo? :)

  • That’s awesome! I’ve been seriously missing car combat for years now, and here comes another one on the heels of TM! I’ll buy this in a heartbeat, when it’s available. Speaking of which, is there a RELEASE DATE anywhere??

  • If anyone thinks this is going to be better that Twisted Metal they are frekin crazy TM will be Epic !!! But we need more car combat games and this seems ok.

  • Looks pretty damn fun! Looks like the smoothness of the game play and lag issues of online play could be the maker or breaker for this game.

    I can’t afford Twisted Metal right now, but i can afford $15 for this, so I hope it is as fun as it looks!

    Is there an actual release date for this yet on the PS Store, and will there be a demo?

  • …Ummmm I don’t see ANYTHING that actually says that this game will offer ONLINE play?

    No online? …No buy. Period.

    – Please tell us that this game will offer online game modes!!

    …………….Please! ;-)

  • is for the ps vita, right?

  • the game looks fun i really enjoy all the twisted metal games so hopefuly this is the same we;ll see.

  • Well if it has online then there you go better then TM
