Space Dave Switch NSP Free Download GAMESPACK.NET Some games take inspiration from those of yesteryear, weaving in classic elements or perhaps adorning a retro aesthetic to show its love for what came before. Then there are games that want to be part of a bygone era, and do such a convincing job you half expect to see them glowing, blinking and blooping from within a dusty old cabinet. That’s just the feeling you get playing Space Dave!, although that’s not always a good thing. Much like predecessor, Woah Dave! (which appeared on 3DS and Wii U in 2014 and 2015, respectively), the latest adventure of David Lonuts is a simple premise with quick play, high-score chasing, coin-up gameplay in mind. It’s aiming to capture that acute arcade magic and it does an admirable job, for better and for worse. At its heart it’s a Space Invaders clone, where the titular Dave (or various other pixel pals) need to shoot down ever increasing waves of descending or whirling enemies on a fixed-screen. Every enemy you kill drops gold coins, which you’ll need to grab to up your score while dodging colourful blocks that will zap your life if one so much as touches you. If a descending foe touches the ground, that section will crumble to reveal lava. It’s a cute little twist, but you’ve got a handy means of countering it – your trusty jetpack.TOP/BEST ADULT VIDEO GAMES IN UNITED STATES OF AMERICA (USA)

Being able to boost jump over gaps adds an extra sense of agency when it comes to managing the waves of enemies, while those that pull away from the pack can also be shot down, and their skulls used as grisly stepping stones. Dave’s pals will occasionally drop power-ups to help his battle with the extraterrestrial horde, including everything from rapid fire and the power to freeze any exposed lava to a special block that turns enemies into allies for a brief time. It’s all fun for a while as you clear each phase, collecting coins as baddies fill the screen in more aggressive patterns, but its simple concept begins to wear thin, and quickly too. There’s just not enough depth to elevate the simplicity of its basic conceit. If you’re the kind of player who loves chasing high scores by repeating the same few actions over, and over, and over again, Space Dave! will scratch an itch on Switch. As we mentioned earlier, it nails the repetitive yet addictive nature of old school arcade games, and there’s nothing ‘wrong’ with a game dialling back the clock and taking this mantra to heart, but when you’re asking $10 for the privilege, it’s a hard sell. There are some saving graces. The game supports both single player and local co-op and Space Dave!’s basic recipe is a far more rewarding experience when played with a friend since dealing with those descending foes is infinitely more fun when you’re spewing death into the depths of space in company.

Leaderboards to prove once and for all who among your friends is the superior Dave!

There’s also a leaderboard system, so that high-score chasing element has a tangible outcome as you attempt to clamber further up the rankings, but unless you’re really into that repetitive retro template it’s a premise that rapidly outstays its welcome. First of all, Space Dave is a significant departure from Woah Dave so don’t expect it to be a direct sequel. Whereas the original had you pick up and throw eggs and such while jumping between platforms, Space Dave has you run back and forth as you shoot at invading aliens. Although that sounds a lot like Space Invaders, there are many wrinkles to the formula that make it feel like a fresh arcade experience. For starters, you can jump! Also, whenever an enemy touches the ground, the land dissolves and a lava pit emerges. Then, that enemy becomes fiercer. However, if you shoot an enraged alien and throw their remains in a lava pit then it will fill it. Unfortunately, you’ll need at least a couple enemies to completely fill a hole. As you can already see, there’s a lot going on but we’re just getting started. Space Dave also features a couple very cool ways to temporarily power-up. First, you’ll pick up items that may grant you an extra drone, a spread gun, a rapid shot, or even freeze all the onscreen lava.I am an Air Traffic Controller AIRPORT HERO HANEDA Switch NSP

Next, you can use a Space block that one of Dave’s friends drops from the top of the screen from time to time. This contraption converts aliens to your side when you throw it to the ground underneath them. Obviously, doing so grants you a ton of extra firepower but the aliens will likely die off fairly quickly because they lag behind and make for easy targets. Just like with Woah Dave, the scoring system in Space Dave relies on collecting coins (mostly pennies). After each phase, you’ll even be rewarded nickels according to how many trees are still standing which reminded me of Missile Command. Overall, the mix of satisfying power-ups and simple scoring system makes Space Dave an addictive arcade-style game. One of the best parts of Space Dave is its variety of alien enemies. You never know what you’ll come across next so it’s fun encountering new types. That being said, coming across a new alien and not knowing what it’ll do may result in death. Anyway, the alien designs are super goofy but that makes them all the more fun. For example, there are balls with faces on one side and a bum on the other. Another aspect that I appreciate a great deal is the cooperative component. You can play through a simultaneous multiplayer mode with a chum and can even revive each other with earned money.

Much-needed answers to the many questions surrounding the mysterious Dave.

It’s fun stuff so if you have a gamer pal then you should try it out. Finally, Space Dave merely consists of a brief campaign that you can play on a few difficulty settings. Once you pass it (which won’t take long, depending on your skill), there really isn’t much else to do besides replay it in order to get high scores. Luckily, if you’re not that skilled then you can unlock a checkpoint after every boss if you manage to snag a special coin from a pesky thief. My only other complaints are that the backgrounds are pretty bland and don’t change much throughout and that some seemingly random occurrences can be extremely frustrating. One of the most annoying events is when an enemy is already close to the ground then it decides to descend in order to take out a piece of the ground. They can sometimes be so close that you can’t run up to it and shoot it in time so you have one of two choices: either sacrifice yourself to save the piece of ground or just let them get away with it. Both of these options are far from ideal but it’s just something that you’ll have to deal with. Inspired by Galaga, Space Invaders and the old-school schmups of yore, Space Dave! is a simple single-screen shooter that challenges players to survive as many phases of an alien invasion as they can. Aliens shoot, I shoot back. Simple stuff.I Am The Hero Switch NSP

Just like any retro arcade shooter I’ve played, the aliens arrive in waves that vary and alternate as I progress through the game. Survive enough phases and I reach a boss battle which, though often repetitive, is thoroughly entertaining. Like Woah Dave!, there is an added challenge here beyond just killing all the aliens. Instead of a standard point system, there are coins I need to collect with each enemy I kill. There are also eight trees I need to protect through my endeavors. Often times an alien will try and kamikaze the ground and if I can’t blast them out of the sky before they do, the spot on the ground they hit becomes molten lava and the alien bounces back into the sky with a more erratic attack pattern. With power-ups, I can freeze the lava allowing me to walk over it safely, but I can also return it to its original state by throwing enough alien skulls into it. At the end of each phase, I get five cents for every tree left standing with a bonus nickel if they’re all there. There are three difficulty levels to choose from but all can be pretty damn tough. If I drop my attention for even a second it means the end of one of my three lives. The only life vest this game throws me is the space block. Occasionally, Commander Video or some other character will fly across the top of the screen and drop one of these blocks. When I throw it, it emits a wave that captures or kills any enemies unlucky enough to be in its range.

Eight playable characters, a few of which you may recognize.

Those aliens it captures then become added guns for me. This adds a genuine strategy to the game beyond dodge and shoot. Any enemy I capture and add to my arsenal has the same number of hit points as it did when it was still trying to kill me. So if I waste the space box on easy-to-kill grunts, they don’t last long on my side. It’s better to save the boxes if I can for the spongier aliens or to do massive damage in a boss battle. The longer I play, the more I change how I play. Starting out I would look at the screen as a whole, admiring the elegantly simple art direction and toe-tapping tunes, but hours in I find myself hard-focused on my Dave (or Blue Dave or Dr. Rekt or whoever I am of the eight playable characters). That intense focus keeps me alive as I move about a steady stream of alien fire, only allowing the entire picture to come into focus when I hear the telltale sound of an enemy about to dive-bomb the dirt. On easy-peasy, this focus gets me through the end of the game. On bonkers — the game’s highest difficulty — it’s the only way I can survive each individual phase. There is a two-player mode that makes the game more chaotic and it’s actually playable on the Switch screen.

There is also an online leaderboard where I can see how my money collected compares with the rest of the world. Spoiler alert: I’m not as good as I think I am. Add in achievements, some of which can be quite difficult, and it makes for a complete if largely empty package. Space Dave! is a little light on content, both in terms of modes and variety. The locations don’t look much different from one another. Boss concepts repeat. There isn’t much diversity in enemy design beyond recoloring and sponging up the aliens I wipe out in the early phases of the game. The repeating designs and attack patterns hold true to the titles that inspired Space Dave!, but those games faced hardware restrictions that determined their limitations whereas any restrictions Space Dave! has seem to be self-imposed. Even if it isn’t everything it could be, Space Dave! is still a damn fun shooter and the exact type of game I want to pick up when I only have a few free minutes of downtime available. It’s fast, frantic, and frequently calling me back to beat my high score. The arcade scene may be deader than the Ouya, but Dave is doing his darndest to keep the spirit of its golden age alive and relevant in this modern era of gaming.

Veterans of the arcade will recall that a vast number of those “classic” games had little to no story line at all. Take, for example, Arkanoid, one of my all time favorites. There isn’t a story. Sure, you can go online and read this bizarre mythology about how you’re fighting a space God and this is some kind of advanced weaponry, but who the hell knew that when they were busy bouncing around balls against blocks? The developer and probably no one else. So, even though sweeping and epic story lines are nice, they are, by no means, required if you’ve got the gameplay and the addictive quality that makes players stay invested. Space Dave is the spiritual successor to Woah Dave, which is a game that I think I spent only a handful of minutes playing on my PC some moons ago. You don’t need to know the plot of Woah Dave to enjoy Space Dave, because, well, Space Dave is totally different. There are aliens coming. Dave needs to fight them off. They come from the sky, you’re on the ground…do the math. Space Dave is a straight up vertical shooter that also has the unique situation of being only semi-fixed. By that I mean, yes, Dave is on the ground, but he can move back and forth, so you at least have a Space Invaders advantage. But it also goes beyond that. Dave has this weird little jumping ability that’s part hop and part fly, mostly because it’s rocket assisted. What you end up with is the ability to coast and kind of float along the ground as long as you keep the jump button held down, but that’s not a guaranteed promise of staying aloft.
