you wonít fare well at this particular ADD. Itís a
ferociously challenging arcade melange of Asteroids and
Space Duel, with sniffs of Super Sprint thrown in
But back to that screaming. Why? Well, we were
playing solo against the CPU. Take our advice and donít do it. When
your Switch basically assails you with the intensity of a Terminator
it doesnít make for fun on any level, especially as the controls can
be a teensy-weensy bit finicky. Just when you get a poofteenth of
thrusty confidence, FWAM! Youíre space toasty fragmentational
With that noted, we dragged some friends in to
help us test out the local multiplayer aspect with non-Terminator
types. They may not have had as cool leathers or accents, but they

your pointy-pointy spaceship against the pointy-pointy spaceships of
others in a pew-pew to the death. One mode even leaves your poor
pilot floating in space after having their ship blammyised, counting

bleeptastic chippy soundtrack and a tonne of arcade slickness,
ADD is some of the best brief fun that youíll have this side of
Ritolin Ė assuming youíve friends to play with.
