Space Dave! adds eyeball blasting with a Galaga twist


Sorry Dave, I’m afraid I can’t do that

Woah Dave! was a pretty big success, though it’s looking like the next title on the Dave! series won’t be content to simply give us more of the same. While Dave’s first adventure was heavily influenced by the 1983’s Mario Bros.,Space Dave! looks to dig even farther back into gaming’s history, drawing inspiration from the original Galaga.

While I still play Woah Dave! pretty regularly (latest high score is $2.59), there is definitely room in the Dave-shaped corner of my mind for more color, explosions, and alien mind control. Even better would be to see the series cross over with the Glorkian Warrior, which shares a similar classic shmup style. The game is coming soon to PS Vita, PS4, 3DS, Wii U and Steam, so it won’t be long before we see how Dave’s latest stacks up for ourselves.
