Think you’ve seen and done it all when it comes to arcade racing games? Think again! Coffin Dodgers is available free for all GeForce NOW members to play on SHIELD. And we can pretty much guarantee you’ve never seen a game quite like it!
Take Mario Kart and put in a retirement community setting and replace the karts with scooters and opponents with The Grim Reaper and his army of scooter-racing zombies and you’ll have a rough idea what you are in for with Coffin Dodgers.

The Grim Reaper has settled down in the Sunny Pines Retirement Community, where he plans to fill his soul quotas easily from the comforts of his rocking chair. A group of seven of Sunny Pine’s senior citizens get wise to his game and strike a deal with the Reaper to save their souls in a racing championship to the death.
You pick one of seven elderly residents to try to save, and then hop on their scooter for an epic showdown with the Grim Reaper and his minions that unfolds during a 13-race championship for survival. Finish at the bottom of the heap and it’s game over – the Reaper gets to take your soul. High stakes indeed!
Play as former German World War II pilot Rudolf “The Red Horn” Hoffman, an original Harley rider, a mad scientist, an Amish sheep farmer, a former centerfold model or a feisty busybody. Each character has a unique scooter and combat abilities that you must master to work your way through the circuit of increasingly challenging courses.
Each track is full of deadly obstacles, traps, jumps, power ups and more than a few nasty surprises – including the Reaper’s undead army that is out to keep you from winning via any means necessary. Place well, and not only will you survive to race another day you’ll also earn much-needed cash you can use to soup-up your ride. Add things like a better engine, improved weapons and cosmetic touches between races to make your scooter suit your character’s unique style.
Coffin Dodgers never really takes itself seriously and that’s all part of the charm and fun – it’s a challenging and hilarious game that’s fun for the entire family. Enjoy racing against up to three of your family members or friends in local split-screen mode, which supports two to four players.
So grab a controller or two or three or four and hit the race track! And if you enjoy Coffin Dodgers be sure to also check out Sonic & Sega’s All-Star Racing Transformed and Gas Guzzlers Extreme, both of which are also available to play in GeForce NOW’s membership library.
