Zeeple Dome is the fourth of the 5 games featured in The Jackbox Party Pack 5.

You, as unfortunate astronauts from Earth, are abducted from your travels through space to participate in the violent game show of Zeeple Dome. You are then dubbed as "Team Earth" to fight your way to victory which, inevitably will always be your death as the Grand Prize.

That is, unless the player(s) have what it takes to rough through the most difficult gauntlet.

Mechanics

NOTE: This game is a real time action game and is highly recommended to be played in a local area. Doing so over longer distances (streaming) will result in a laggy, difficult experience.

Controls

On your device, you will see a big circle of your color with a figure in the middle of it attached to two white strings. Drag that figure away from the center then release to send your character flying! On the screen, you will see an outline that points towards the direction your character will be flung to that coordinate with the opposite direction the player is pulling. (In short, it’s basically a slingshot.) You can perform another fling whilst in mid-air once you have come into contact with a wall, object, enemy, another player, or even a power-up.

It is recommended that you do NOT play this game with your PC as a controller (using a mouse), or any other device that does not utilize a touch screen.

Color

Color is the main mechanic throughout the whole game. When a player enters the game, they will appear on one of the six empty stands available and appear as 1 of 6 colors that will be randomly assigned: Cyan, Yellow, Pink, Purple, Orange, or Blue. Any and all of the astronauts can smack into an idle monochromatic (Black and White) enemy in the game to drain its health.

When an enemy has their health depleted, they will become stunned and phase into one of the players' colors during this time. The player of the matching color needs to smack into the enemy to defeat them for good.

Every enemy has the ability to phase into one of the players' colors above whilst powering up their attack for a short period of time. During that time, only the player of the matching color should prioritize that enemy before it fully powers up to attack. Once successful, the enemy will be disrupted and dazed leaving them open to a couple more hits by any other player until its next attack. An attacking enemy possess a red and black look. They become invincible for the duration of their attack until idle again.

If a player comes in contact with an enemy that isn't their color, the threat will immediately become agitated and will not wait until it is finished powering up to attack.

Every now and then, an occasional weapon or power-up will appear on the screen. Only the player with the correct color will have the ability to touch the power-up which will be distributed to the whole team for a short amount of time.

Enemies

As you play Zeeple Dome, you'll encounter a variety of black and white colored aliens that all simultaneously aim to defeat you. They power up with a random color based on the players in play to perform their attacks. Hence, the color mechanic. There are two important factors that go into play that determine the speed of these threats.

  1. The more difficult a gauntlet is, the quicker enemies will be able to power up and execute their attack.
  2. The more players there are in a game, the slower the enemies are forced to be. (Allowing for more reaction time for all participating in a game.)

Hargon Hunter

Hargon Hunter.svg

Note: This enemy is unused.

"Focus fire on this Hargon if it eats you. If your team is quick, they just might save you!"

~ Glargan O’Toe when you first encounter a Hargon Hunter in a game of 2 or more players.

The Hargon Hunter is the eighth and final enemy. It is the tenth prize of the game.

  • Attack: Spins and bounces around the arena aiming for a player. (like a little Chu-Chon) Once it catches someone, there will be a short amount of time for anyone else to bump into the Hargon to release the player. If the player is not rescued in time, the Hargon will spit them out, turning the player into a dangerous projectile that can hurt them, and other players severely.
  • Value: §600
  • Unlock Price: §350,000


It is the only prize that doesn't have any chance of showing up in game normally besides through mods. This could be due to the fact that this enemy was not programmed particularly well. When a Hargon eats them, the player doesn't appear visually, but still physically exists where they last were on screen before they were swallowed. Of course since they are eaten, the player cannot move and is rendered completely helpless. As a result, enemies can still damage and even kill the player easily. Multiple Hargons can eat/spit out the player simultaneously because of this too.

Boss

The canonical name of the Boss is unknown.

The Boss was Planned for the game but was left out due to its short development time. it remains unknown as to what it is capable of doing.

Gauntlets

In Zeeple Dome, the gauntlets serve as a difficulty, the higher the gauntlet, the more difficult it is. Beating one gauntlet will always result in the next gauntlet being harder. (Provided you have unlocked the next difficulty.)

Tutorial

ZD Tutorial.png

The tutorial gauntlet, as the name implies, is the first gauntlet you start with when you first play Zeeple Dome as it teaches you how the game functions and what weapons/power-ups do what.

  • Waves: 4
  • Color: Green
  • Shape: Circle

Easy

ZD Easy.png

The Easy gauntlet is the first of the 13 prizes you earn in the game. Enemies are passive and take longer than usual to charge up their attack, meaning more time to react.
This mode introduces bumpers that sends you off, bouncing quickly. These can be utilized to get an extra hit on an enemy.

  • Waves: 4
  • Color: Cyan
  • Shape: Triangle
  • Unlock price: §4,500

Medium

ZD Medium.png

The Medium gauntlet is the fourth of the 13 prizes you earn in the game.
This mode introduces Color Barriers that allow the player of a certain color to pass through. They change color on their own after a small amount of time.

  • Waves: 5
  • Color: Orange
  • Shape: Rhombus
  • Unlock price: §80,000

Insane

ZD Insane.png

The Insane gauntlet is then eighth of the 13 prizes you earn in the game, and the highest difficulty you can select at the start of the game. The speed and frequency of any attacks become noticeably faster.
This mode introduces Portals that send you around to the opposite portal in the arena. Despite having a blue appearance, they are not color coded and can be used by any color at anytime. All tougher Gauntlets from here do not introduce any new enemies or objects.

  • Waves: 5
  • Color: Magenta
  • Shape: Pentagon
  • Unlock price: §200,000

Utter Madness

ZD Utter Madness.png

Once unlocked, only beating either the Medium or Insane gauntlet will give you the Utter Madness gauntlet. The eleventh of the 13 prizes you earn in the game, and one of the two higher difficulties that you cannot select.

  • Waves: 6
  • Color: Purple (yellow borders on the layouts)
  • Shape: 4-pointed star
  • Unlock Price: §400,000

H E L L

ZD H E L L.png

Zeeple Dome's final prize, and final challenge. If you started the Insane gauntlet set and completed the Utter Madness gauntlet, you will be presented with the HELL gauntlet. Rare few have completed this gauntlet and lived to tell the tale...
This mode minimizes the amount of time any enemy takes to charge up their attack as well as maximizes their damage and likeliness to do so. Unfortunate players can be met with enemies that never, ever stand idle.

  • Waves: 5
  • Color: Dark Fuchsia
  • Shape: 8-pointed star.
  • Unlock Price: §600,000

Weapons

Weapons or Power-Ups appear randomly on the screen from time to time. As stated, only the player with matching color can touch and activate it. After that, everyone is given that power-up for a short time. This time will further be shortened on harder gauntlets.
Note: Collecting a weapon while one is already active will cancel the previous one. The only power-up that doesn't share this trait is the Health Field.

Cluster Bomb

Cluster Bomb.svg

Grabbing this power-up will send out three explosives only when coming in contact with an enemy. This can help whittle down their health and or defeat enemies for you!
Unfortunately, this comes with a nuisance. Only the correct colored player's will have the cluster bombs will defeat the correctly colored enemy. Since there is no way to distinguish whose bombs are whose and enemies near death require the correct color to fully be defeated, this can lead to an annoying cycle where the enemy is constantly met with agitation.

Health Field

Grabbing this power-up will create a green aura that restores your health. All you have to do is fling yourself repeatedly in and out of the field to heal. Not stay inside of it.

Electro-Sphere (Stun Attack)

"An Electro-Sphere! Stun an enemies with it and they can't attack!"
~ Glargan O'Toe when the Electro-Sphere first appears.

Grabbing this power-up will allow you and your friends to stun your enemies for a long period of time, provided they are either idle or the correct color.

Shield Aura

The third prize of the game. Grabbing this power-up will make you and your friends impervious to any and all attacks for a limited time.

Unlock Price: §35,000

Prism Cannon

The sixth prize of the game. Grabbing this power-up will let you and your friends become ALL colors allowing all players to pass through any color changing barriers, hurt all enemies, and become much faster while flinging. Plus, everyone subtlety inflicts more damage than a standard attack.

Unlock Price: §130,000

Devastator

The second-to-last prize in the game. Grabbing this power-up will make you and your friends deal extremely violent blows to the enemies with every hit, emptying their health like nothing! (This does not mean however that it can instantly knock them out.)

Unlock Price: §500,000

Trivia

  • This game is canon to Patently Stupid, as the host (Glargan O'Toe) interacts with Toby and Lena in an Easter egg in said game, if you play three games in a row.
  • The name of the "§" currency "Zubabucks" in game is named after Mike Zuba.
  • In The Jackbox Party Pack 7 Official Trailer, there is a poster for Zeeple Dome inside of a pug’s apartment.
  • Some weapons and Power-Ups, once activated, have incorrect names on the player’s device with even incorrectly. Likely due to the fact that the game was the last to be announced for the pack, thus leaving little time to develop and ending up VERY unfinished as a result.
  • The game was originally going to created with multiple additions in mind that never made it in-game. Since the game was the last to be under production for The Jackbox Party Pack 5, it was always behind in development. The lack of audience, amongst other planned additions were not added in due to time constraints.

    The gauntlet in question, harder than "HELL."

    • The audience allegedly would have been able to play a big role. While they would not be able to directly play the game itself, but they would presumably have the liberty to vote on their devices what enemies/power-ups are dropped into the game, leaving the players entirely at their mercy.
    • There was originally going to be a boss for the game that unfortunately never made it into the final version. Evidence includes a track in The Jackbox Party Pack 5 soundtrack named "Zeeple Dome: Boss 1" and other unused sound files.
    • There is an unused gauntlet gate that was presumably going to be used for a gauntlet that would been harder than the "HELL" gauntlet.
