When I first heard the title Dollar Dash, my mind immediately raced to some weird game show where contestants had to run around collecting floating dollar notes in a vacuumed glass enclosure. And come to think of it, Dollar Dash isn’t much different from that as players race around the screen collecting as much cash as they can before the other thieves can reach the goal. Dollar Dash is a multiplayer only game. Games consist of one of three different modes, the main one being the Dollar Dash mode. In Dollar Dash, participants are tasked with collecting and depositing as much as they can until they (or someone else) reaches the end goal. As mentioned, it is not simply a matter of collecting as much as you can, but being able to transport the cash to the drop-off point. Along the way, others can ‘steal’ the cash you’ve collected from you, so careful use of weapons and power-ups is required. Prior to each contest, players can spend their previous winnings on items from the shop. They can use their cash to purchase various upgrades and perks as well as items such as taunts and hats that customise their avatars. The upgrades and perks help in game, but the customisations do not have any impact on games and player performance, so there is really little need to splurge on these items. Indeed, from the top-down perspective of the game and the speed at which games play, it is really hard to notice the differences from one player to the next.

All the maps are quite small, so as to keep all the thieves on the same screen at once, but they certainly offer some variety to the gameplay and require different strategies to win. Some maps have cash scattered around the map from the start, whilst other maps appear devoid of dollars until it falls off the back of a passing truck. Other maps also have competitors starting together whilst some maps have them starting from different corners of the map. Then there are the maps that not only have the four foes, but also contain security guards who roam the maps or fire weapons from hidden locations. These security guards will send players back to the spawn point and strip them of their not-so-hard earned cash. Controls are quite simple, with two options available to players. Keyboard and mouse was, for me anyway, the easier of the two options. The keyboard controls the movement and the power-ups whilst the mouse controls the weapons (primary and secondary). A gamepad can also be used to play Dollar Dash, and works like you would expect, having the d-pad control the movement and the function buttons control the weapons and power-ups. I had an issue with configuring my gamepad, but it worked okay, although aiming and shooting the weapons was not nearly as efficient as the mouse. As such, after trying out the gamepad a couple of times, I switched back to the keyboard/mouse combination, which is weird for me because I usually prefer a gamepad.

The cartoon style visuals are colorful and cute and work well with the comical nature of the game, but they seem somewhat dated. There is a definite retro feel to the visuals, starting from the top-down visual style to the icons representing the cash, weapons and power-ups. As mentioned, the maps are on the small side. As are the characters, meaning that the visual customisations are quite obsolete in-game. All the other details - such as weapon and power-up icons - are clearly represented on screen though, making for an uncluttered interface. So, the visuals have a retro look, the jazzy background music is kinda cool, there are some Worms-style comical weapons and although there are a number of different game modes and a range of maps to play, the gameplay is still pretty much the same for all. Yes, there are some adjustments in strategy required, but the mechanics remain the same the whole way through. It is for this reason that the novelty of the game soon wears off. This is further enhanced when it comes to the unpopulated servers, meaning that for the most part I was playing bots instead of real life competition.

I can only recommend Dollar Dash if you have some friends willing to play it with you. This is the only scenario in which the game is even remotely fun, as playing solo against bots gets old really quickly.

Essentially, this is a multiplayer game but the multiplayer is broken. It doesn't work.

Idea for the game is good, execution is not.

Buy Monaco instead. Similar game, way better.

Dollar Dash looks fun, sounds fun, but its not! The graphics are ok, but the controls are unresponsive which makes the gameplay terrible. avoid 3/10

This is only worth a buck in a sale if you plan to play against some friends local. Otherwise this game is really poor. The local co-op category is simply wrong and while the presentation is quite decent, the actual game isn't. Mindless collecting and shooting doesn't make up for interesting gameplay. Give this one a miss.

You see this game had a lot of potential, but the developers decided to ditch it without giving a multiplayer fix patch out. What they did was leave a small note with instructions on "DYI port forwarding or GTFO" which rather placed this game in a horrible hellhole of bad criticism. With one single patch, they could fix this, but hey, it's been a year now and they still haven't fixed this minor issue which the provider should fix, not the customer.

Do you want a version of Monaco that's a lot less customizable and also competitive rather than co-op? Okay, that's this: a cartoony heist game where you can beat up your pals to make them drop loot and take it for yourself. Has a couple of different modes, some of which are DLC-locked.

It's not particularly fun if you don't have other humans to play with. Do you know people who will play this with you as a silly thing? Consider it. Otherwise? Drop the thing like a hot potato, the AI is nothing amazing and there's no single player aspect at all.

Dollar Dash was made for multi but I could never get it to work, so I was always stuck with boring AI. DD is kinda like bomberman minus the fun. Money wasted. No updates or fixes, totally abandoned game. The devs took my dollars and dashed!

Do not buy this game. I repeat. DO NOT BUY THIS GAME.

I never expected much from this game, but it seemed like it would be a fun coop experience. Except the online is completely dysfunctional. It simply does not work. The matchmaking is broken. Despite countless other accounts from others who shared the same problem, the developers, even a year later from the earliest reports, have yet to provide a working fix for this. The one solution they provided on the forums failed to solve anything. They seemed to have abandoned the game after the initial sales. Please do not buy this game, whether it be for a coop or for the singleplayer experience. You might as well be throwing your valuable money down the gutter. There is local coop, but even that is a miserable experience due to the flawed game mechanics themselves. There is absolutely no depth to the heists themselves. All it is mindless looting and shooting. All this has going for it is its mediocre presentation and art direction. Do yourself a favor. If you're looking for a fun coop heist game, take a look at Monaco. It's everything this game should've been. Don't give any support to these developers. They wasted both my time and my friend's money (he bought a 4 pack for our group of friends).

ENG:

If Kalypso cares more their customers more, then that game was fine, but "NO" now, because Kalypso Media Digital -game!

Kalypso games are not worth 10 euros more valuable good-which usually includes more than overcharge micro-payment-add-ons. In other cases, you should not buy.

FIN:

Jos Kalypso hulehtisi enemmän heidän asiakkaistaan niin peli olisi hyvä, mutta "EI", koska Kalypso Media Digital -Peli!

Kalypso pelit eivät ole arvoltaan 10 euroa arvokkaampia laatuunsa nähden, joka yleensä sisältää vielä yli hinnotellut mikromaksu lisäosat. Muissa tapauksissa kannattaa jättää ostamatta.

Dollar Dash is a game about running around a map, collecting stuff (ok), and throwing things at other players (fun).

Good: if you can get a few people playing, however, the online games at the time of writing where slim to none (mainly people trying to get the games achievements).

Bad: There is no depth to the game, so if you plan to play it solo against the AI - don't bother!

Well it's not the worsest game ever, but kinda a few things are just really not good. Even if it has full controller support, it works not that good on my controller. At first I hope the Local co-op is going to be fun, but well, forget that. Just don't buy it, it's not worth it.

Dollar Dash is a multiplayer party game. It has three game modes that could be minigames in a Mario Party game. It's nothing special, but could be a lot of fun playing with friends. It has local multiplayer. So if you have a steambox and a couple of controllers the game could be gold. Don't buy it for online multiplayer, because it is dead like most smaller games. You can play against bots, but that gets boring really fast. Only recommended if you have friends to play it with.

This game is the worst game ever. No one play's multiplayer, i don't know if it's a bug or not, but it really sucks. There is only one map that has other AI'S than just robbers, they are so bad, you don't even have to go stealthy, you can just run trough it!
2/10

The game is fun, but there are debilitating bugs in online multiplayer and little to no community to play it with, which is a must for a game like this.. Only buy if you know friends to play it with. Otherwise it offers what is advertised: a decent arcade party game.

It has a great idea i loved the graphics and mechanics but a multiplayer core game with multiplayer issues (it doesn't work) can't be recommended.
