A multiplayer game at heart, it should come as no surprise that right off the bat I’m going to come out and say this game is very boring as a solo experience. Within five minutes of trying the game in solo I was wanting to come off of it quicker than I got on it as it simply felt like it was lacking anything fun. If I’d have to describe the solo mode I’d say it’s been rushed just so its there as an option.
That above statement may be true for the solo experience but get another player involved and it starts to actually become a fun game, albeit it in a very limited capacity. In short, bursts Must Dash Amigos is a fun game that offers players a few different modes including a race like a mode, a battle style mode, and a tournament mode.
Unfortunately, whilst the game modes on offer are fun for a multiplayer experience they are limited in variety and do eventually start to feel boring, which is made worse by the limited amount of characters and few level settings.
To try and spice things up a bit the game features challenges which include things such as beating a course within a time limit and much more and whilst these work for a bit, just like the rest of the game they do tend to get boring really fast.
Graphically Must Dash Amigos looks very cartoony and cute, whilst at the same time looking like something dragged from Nintendo’s previous console. It’s not bad but its nothing special at the time.
Humor is present in Must Dash Amigos and its easy to see that the developers can have a laugh, even going as far as referring to Snakes as Sneks and placing some pretty funny tips on the game’s loading screen.
The game’s small roster of characters features a monkey, a little girl, a woman, and a male. They can each be upgraded with new costumes purchased using the game’s currency, Mustachios. Unfortunately, these costumes cost too many Mustachios and you’ll eventually find yourself bored to death before you even have enough to buy one.
I wish I could say some more really nice things about this game but all I can really say is that the premise behind it is a good one but in this instance, it feels like it has been poorly executed. Its multiplayer feature which it heavily relies on is its strongest asset but even this gets stale quite quickly.
