Woah Dave!

Woah Dave! is a simple arcade-style game that has sadly gone under the radar for over a year. I’m here to teach you what this game is all about and show why it should be your next purchase!

First, you choose a character. They all play the same, but it’s nice to be able to have some options. My character of choice is usually the tiny robot, Mr. Robotube.

 

When you start the game, eggs & skulls will begin to fall from the sky. The eggs hatch monsters, and the monsters march down the screen to return to the top as more powered-up versions of themselves.

It’s your job to pick up explosive skulls and throw them at eggs & monsters in order to collect coins.

 

The tricky part is staying alive.

You need to watch carefully in order to make sure that you don’t bump into any monsters, or that you don’t let a skull explode while you’re holding it.

 

Eventually, it will be tough to keep up with everything happening on the screen. New enemies will appear, like UFOs.

You can even fly the orange UFOs & shoot lasers for a short period of time!

 

Keep an eye out for Woah Blocks. They don’t appear often, but they are extremely helpful and can get you out of tough situations.

Woah Blocks destroy everything on-screen, leaving you with tons of free coins to pick up.

 

PRO TIP:

When a black egg appears, LET IT HATCH. The monster inside will leave a boat-load of coins if you manage to kill it before it reaches the lava. But you need to act quickly, because it’s the fastest creature in the game and can reach the lava before you even have time to react.

 

If you’ve been itching for a game that brings you back to your childhood days of spending all of your quarters at the local arcade, look no further than Woah Dave! Available for PS4, PS Vita, Wii U, and Nintendo 3DS for only $4.99.
