Dash Masters by Playmous - First look and beta codes



Hi everyone! Dash Masters is a new arcade game we are working on here at Playmous.

The rules are simple. Tap to jump in alternate directions. Swipe up to perform a Dash.

Checking equipment.
Tech drone: operational.
Exosuit: online.
Missiles loaded. Burst Engines at full energy.
Final equipment check complete.



Begin transmission. . .

“Twenty years ago, the aliens attacked. Billions of lives were lost.

We few survivors went underground to create the ultimate weapon that would let us reclaim our planet from this artificial alien race of beings we call ‘Bots.’

With the prototype Exosuit Model C-31 you will attempt the impossible: infiltrate and destroy enemy Attack Towers. Use Burst Engines to destroy Guardian Bots and make your way through enemy defenses.



Earn battle experience to upgrade your Exosuit for better performance! Completing Missions from the HQ gets you rewards and trophies, so suit up. The time has come to smash some Bots and take back our planet!

But remember: you are mankind’s last hope…"



Transmission End.

Already playing here.

It's ass kicking! I have some immediate impressions.

I think you got the IAP down right. This is one of the key aspects of every game when you are dealing with free to play. You guys have it set up not only fairly but right. There is currency doublers. There is opt in ads. All very well priced. For sure I'll be purchasing the coin doubler. That's the first purchase out of the gate. I love the spin wheel however the timer on the spin wheel is too long. Try cutting it in half and see how it plays out. I'd love to spin that wheel a lot more!

Ok to the gameplay. It's actually pretty awesome. The one tap to dash back and forth and being able to slide down the walls is fantastic. I love the swipe up mechanic as well. I do think having one upwards energy dash is too little though. You have a ton of enemies to try and get around. I see you can upgrade the suit later on but it would be better to start with more than just 1.

Also I'm loving that homing missile! Hell yeah to that thing lol. It really saves your ass lol.

One thing that's not there, and it's an opportunity you guys are missing out on as a coin sink, is the ability to actually color the suit. To be honest I'd love to change the color to black. You could charge 10,000 coins to change it. This really should be in the game.

I'm going to play more and give a full review later and go into every aspect of the game. I just wanted to bounce some initial stuff.

This is a fun game. I really really like the artwork.

I have a question, besides the wheel, how else do you obtain batteries by playing? I haven't seen them in the levels. If they were in the levels you could also put in a battery doubler IAP.

Oh god, Cabuckn is here now people. Testing is over. Run.

Lol

We love the same exact games don't we lol. I'll be interested to hear what you have to say. Tell me you don't love that homing missile. I'm working like a mad man right now to rank up to upgrade the missile component of the suit!

It's fun so far. Controls took me a bit to get used to. Art looks great as well.

Honestly, still struggling with the controls. But I'm at work, so I'm not giving full impressions yet. I don't think it's the games controls that are hard, I think it's my brain not working yet lol
