Game Modes

There are four game modes to choose from in Have a Blast:

  • Deathmatch – The last pilot standing wins the round in this familiar mode. The first player to win five rounds wins the match.
  • Team match – This game mode allows any combination of players in a team vs team play. It's also a great opportunity to reinforce or ruin friendships.
  • Mothership – In this mode, players must protect the mothership for a fair chance at victory. The mothership will provide players with health, ammo and refuge. Once destroyed, they're toast.
  • Challenges - In this mode, players can try every ship and environment by completing specific challenges against the computer.


Bots can be added to any match and are driven by an adaptive AI system that is guaranteed to provide a challenge for solo players. The difficulty level of the AI is also fully adjustable, depending on player preferences.
