Space Invaders Dice!

April 23rd, 2017 Leave a comment Go to comments

If you don’t know what “Space Invaders” is, then there’s a good chance I’m older than you. Much, much older.  It was a game I used to play on my Atari 2600 and with my one button joystick, tried to shoot aliens out of the sky (and the occasional UFO for bonus points). “Space Invaders Dice!” recaptures the retro feel of this quote unquote “ancient” video game rather nicely and can be played so or with three other people.  Special thanks Wholesale Manager Zack Krnavek from Turn One Gaming Supplies for providing me with a press copy for review purposes.

Due to medical issues I opted to cover the how to play part of my review with a short video. As far as a review is concerned, I will say that I rather enjoyed this title as it comes with a number of different game modes.  For example, there’s a draft multiplayer where players draft dice and a solo marathon game that will test your endurance (and luck).  The game is nice and compact, making it quite portable for trips.  The dice are of good quality and there are plenty of sheets to use, especially if you’re a solo kinda guy/gal.

The game will be available May, 2017 and can be pre-ordered now for $16.99.  I found that price to be fair for the amount of play time offered here.  I can personally recommend “Space Invaders Dice!” and then some, though admittedly some of the gameplay is luck-based. Sure, you can reroll dice, but there’s a tougher penalty if you roll poorly the second time around. Don’t let the luck aspect dissuade you however, this is a game that both younger and older retro-gamers can appreciate.

Final Verdict: 8/10
