Review Dodge Blast

Brandon Girod
8.7Excellent
Great retro sound effects, engaging gameplay mechanics, unlocks are reasonable
Levels can get pretty long
Top down shooters, now more frequently called shoot’em ups or schmups, are pretty much like the names describe. They’re games where you will pilot something - usually a spaceship - and your task is to kill as many enemies as you can while trying to make it to the end of the level, all while trying to dodge incoming enemy fire. Dodge Blast for Android is an arcade version of this. Think Space Invaders but it goes on forever.
That’s right, you can’t really beat this game. There are an endless amount of levels to play through, though I’m not entirely sure most people will have a long enough attention span to spend too long with the game. Its premise is really basic though it does offer a bit of a mix-up with the controls.
See, you can’t actually control which direction your ship moves in. There are two buttons at the bottom of the screen: dodge and shoot. Shooting does what you’d expect, but at first glance I had no idea what dodge did. Turns out it makes your ship move from one side of the screen to the other. The problem is that enemies occupy all areas of the screen so you have to carefully time your shots. Even trickier, you only have a limited amount of shots you can make before you have to dodge.
Making your way through the game, you’ll earn coins that can be used to do things like buy a continue or new ships. Ships come with various stats, so it’s in your best interest to save up for these first until you find one you really like.
I honestly had a ton of fun with Dodge Blast but as I stated before, unless you’re totally satisfied playing the game for hours at a time, runs get really lengthy. I would have much rather have seen this game come in a level format so I could pick up my progress from where I left off.
