For those unfortunate souls who haven’t experienced the phenomenal world of Tagpro, here’s some explanation of the magic behind the game. Tagpro is a fully HTML5 web game played with 4-8 players, 2-4 on each team. Each player controls a “ball”, and the each player must navigate their ball around the map.
Now the goal of the game is that both teams have a flag to protect, and to win you have to grab your opponent’s flag and return it to your team base. It’s highly intense, and there’s some quirks to keep things interesting. Players are able to hit and “pop” the opposing flag carrier, which returns the flag back to its base. The popped player must restart from his base. There’s all sorts of items on the map which will also come into play as you quickly discover them. There are different kinds of power ups which can help you and your team. There are spikes and walls around which one must navigate. There are buttons which allow your teammates, but not opponents, to move through certain walls.
Capturing your opponent’s flag results in your team being rewarded with a point. The first team to score three points is crowned victorious. Yes, Tagpro is essentially capture the flag, but the combination of strategy and skill is what makes Tagpro so enthralling. Will you choose to sit on a button and help your teammates in their quests to capture the flag, or do you try to capture the flag by yourself and be the hero your team needs? If you try to capture the flag, is it worth the risk? What if you simply get popped by a superior opponent and waste your team’s scoring opportunity?
