Map/Gametype: Slip N' Slice
Slip N' Slice is an infection minigame where players have to run away from invincible zombies for 2 minutes in order to win. The main gimmick in this mode however, is that players are in a giant ice rink and will slide in whichever direction they were moving; making it hard to switch directions.
Survivors come equipped with a golf club while zombies come equipped with an energy sword.
Survivors move faster than the zombies to help balance out the lunge of the sword and how easy the zombies can cut you off. Survivors can move even faster if they use their hammer to propel themselves backwards.
Survivors can also block zombie slashes by perfectly timing their golf club swing. Be careful though! Survivors don't have any health/shield regeneration and can only block a set amount of attacks before being killed.
When a survivor is eliminated, they will respawn as zombie. This zombie (non-alpha) will move EVEN SLOWER than the Alpha Zombie to help balance having a bunch zombies at once. Rather than going straight towards the survivors, the new zombies should try to block off parts of the rink that the survivors would try to escape to from the alpha.
The mode starts out slow but ramps up exponentially as more people get infected. To help the Last Man Standing against a potential ~15 zombies, the last man will receive a "Good Camo" when standing perfectly still and will move twice as fast as a regular survivor.
When we played, this was balanced for around 10 players. More or less may be a bit too easy/difficult for the survivors to win. I'll have to test it out.
To download, search my gamertag "RushMyPancake" ingame using the "Find Player" option and look at my shared files. The gametype and map will be shared (Both are called "Slip N' Slice"). OR if you are on PC, clicking the download on this post will provide you with the map and gametype. Drag those files into their respective folders in your game files.
