Gameplay

As the name implies, BattleSport is a sports game played in vehicles, where the objective is to get a "ball" and fire it into one of the goals before the opposing player can do the same. In addition, vehicles are equipped with weapons that can do damage, and powerups exist which can change each player's stats.
