Dash & Bash is an iPhone game developed by Touch.Play.Repeat. In this playful iOS title, you control a duck who is trying to win a race. If you want to help him win, you’ll need lightning-fast reflexes!
The two main characters in Dash & Bash are Dash (a duck who wants to become the new racing champ) and Bash (a beaver who is the reigning race champion.) The sound design in Dash & Bash is really great. It’s pretty much the perfect blend of woodland sounds and fast-paced music to pump you up during your race.
The controls are simple, which befits the fast-paced nature of this game. Tap above the water level to fly momentarily. Tap below the water level to dive for a moment. Hold your taps at either spot to stay in the air or stay submerged. Along the way, eat as many fruits as you can to gain maximum speed.
If you get a three-star rating on a track, you can race against Bash the beaver and compete for the track’s “golden egg” prize. This is optional: you can simply move along to the next race if you’d prefer, and come back later when you’ve upgraded your abilities.
The overall pace of the game is blazing fast, and it’s definitely a challenge for casual and hardcore game fans alike. After each race, you earn gold coins. These coins can be used to upgrade your “costume” and give you enhanced powers. There are pirates, zombies, vampires, sailors, cowboys, and even Oompa-Loompa-style ducks to unlock.
I simply could not put Dash & Bash down. It has a great blend of graphics, challenging level designs, fun music, and addictive quests. If you love games that challenge your reflexes, don’t miss this awesome title.
