Spaceteam's review

    Published: 2013-08-13, by Peter Warrior.

    An original cooperative game

    • Cooperative
    • Free
    • Fun and original
    • It can't be played alone

    "Houston, we...well, it has happened again"

    OK, look for your best friend and download Spaceteam. Now imagine you are both beamed up to a starship about to be blown off by a supernova while there are all kind of engine anomalies on board. You have to follow the detailed instructions in order to survive and not become space dust.

    Those instructions are actually quite freaking, because are like "set the prankybrake out", "ferrous holospectrum off" and other B-series sci-fish hilarious slang. However, unless you are too prone to hysterical issues or suffer chronic misanthropy, it's nice to play a cooperative game in which everybody has to do his part to survive. As game difficulty increases, your wits (and friendship) will be tested. Eventually, you all die and laugh at the same time. Up to four players can play at once, but you can't play it solo.

    In conclusion, we love this kind of games: non-violent (please!), cooperative, friendly, fun and free. There are in-app purchases in case you want to buy more spaceships and stuff, though you can play as long as you can with the vanilla package. Of course, some cutscenes and additional artwork would make this piece of game a masterpiece, but it's recommendable to everyone no matter how you look at it.

    Do you like pushing buttons and shouting at your friends? Do you like discharging Clip-jawed Fluxtrunions? If you answered yes, or no, then you might have what it takes to be on a Spaceteam.

    Spaceteam is a cooperative party game for 2 to 8 players who shout technobabble at each other until their ship explodes. Each player needs a mobile device (Android and Apple devices can play together over Wifi!).

    You'll be assigned a random control panel with buttons, switches, sliders, and dials. You need to follow time-sensitive instructions. However, the instructions are being sent to your teammates, so you have to coordinate before the time runs out. Also, the ship is falling apart. And you're trying to outrun an exploding star.

    Good luck. And remember to work together... as a Spaceteam!

    - Teamwork
    - Confusion
    - Shouting
    - An untimely demise
    - Beveled Nanobuzzers
    - Auxiliary Technoprobes
    - Four-stroke Pluckers
