Woah Dave scratches the manic arcade itch

One of the most common questions one gets asked when visiting a show like PAX East is, "what's the most fun game you've played this weekend." Woah Dave was my automatic response to any such query this past weekend. An a...

I almost collected a half dollar in Woah Dave! and that's pretty good
by Brett Makedonski

Fifty cents doesn't sound like much, right? You could lose fifty cents in the couch cushion and not think twice about it. Well, I earned -- that's right earned -- almost that much in Robotube Games'Woah Dave!, and I was pretty damn proud of it.

Part of the reason for this seeming like such an accomplishment is because Woah Dave! doesn't just give away money. It's frugal. It makes you squeeze every cent out of it. But, most importantly, the gameplay makes it satisfying and rewarding to earn anything at all.

Woah Dave! is structured simply and familiarly. Set in arenas that are reminiscent of Mario Bros., the player (Dave?) runs around four tiers of broken platforms as enemies slowly swarm. It's the way that everything is a threat that makes Woah Dave! unique.

The items that can be interacted with in Woah Dave! are eggs and skulls. Eggs, after a few seconds on the screen, hatch into monsters. Skulls can be picked up and thrown at the eggs (or monsters) to defeat them, but they'll explode after a bit of time (there's a blinking pattern to forewarn this) making them also dangerous.
