Crash Course 3D: ICE


Expert's review

"Alien invasion, more real than ever"

  • 3D technology
  • Stunning graphics
  • Original game dynamics for a space shooter
  • Three different game modes and upgradeable weapons
  • Nothing special

Crash Course 3D is a fast-pace arcade space shooter that used 3D technology

Positive, you have read it well: this isn't just that the game is set in 3D graphics but it offers a unique 3D-mode that supports anaglyph 3D glasses. If you're really into this technology, if you have glasses or a device that already support it, you're going to enjoy it to its full potential. If you don't care or you don't have a 3D-like device, no worries, you can also play it in regular mode.

Gameplay is similar to other classic space shooters like Asteroids: a massive armada of aliens are invading human bases on unprotected planets. You're the only ship in the area powerful enough to finish them off. The main difference lies on the view and game dynamics: instead of top-down flat background, the ship race around a planet orbit. This provides a full 360ª experience in 3D. Actually, this feature makes all the difference: it turns it into a mad action game, no need to wait for waves to come, go yourself towards them by rotating the sphere and blast them.

There are three different game modes: casual, arcade and survival and three fully upgradeable weapons to end up aliens and blast asteroids. No way to get bored after a while. You can submit your scores on online leaderboards.

3D graphics are great, well rendered: planet movement, effects when shooting and ships exploding. Of course, with glasses and devices that supports 3D you're going to enjoy it to the greatest. Controls are quite intuitive: screenpad for controlling the ship and shoot. Easy, no screentouch response issues.

DFC Games put all their efforts into developing a great game inspired on a successful classic gameplay. They've achieved it. Highly recommendable.
