Well here I am, my 80th birthday and my wife has seen fit in our budget for me to afford one of those nice new indie games on Steam. Well here I am on Steam and I come across a colorful lookin' game on sale. My eye doctor said that vivid colors would be good for my vision. So my wife said "what the heck is that?" and I said it's "dodgeball" and so she said alright.
I thought I'd ask the man that made the game his opinion on it and he seemed like a pretty nice guy.http://steamcommunity.com/app/270450/discussions/0/617328415077052066/
Well mannered I thought, and seemed like the hard workin' type to have made this game on his own.
So I get the game and I start it up and my wife is over there knitting some mittens for the grandkids when this noise started banging out of the computer speakers. Startled us at first but then I thought it sounded kinda nice. I started movin' in places I haven't moved since my younger days and so I got up and got to moving. My wife said she was physically attracted to me for the first time in years.
Thank you Robot Roller-Derby Disco Dodgeball for saving my marriage.
10/10 would cut the rug again.
UPDATE: Okay kids, you wanted a more helpful review and now since grandpa has had some time with the game, I can give some insight about the actual thing!
1. It's great! It has helped my eyesight, just like the doctor ordered. The graphics are what you see and they look great.
2. There is a learning curve but it's very rewarding once you get good at it! For instance, if you're used to shooters, you might find yourself hitting the reload button from time to time in this game for no reason. You gotta pick up a ball to be armed kid!
3. HOOPS!!!! Best game mode ever, reminds me of my days playing along side the famous Bill Russell. Plenty of other game modes too if you want to try something else.
4. The single player arcade mode is a terrific place to practice. It's also pretty fun too.
5. It's just a really friendly community, what's the last game you played where people were saying "Wow! Great game guys!" or "Nice moves!" instead of "git gud" or "you suck!" Also, there's a neat kudos system in place where you can compliment opponents in real time with the press of a key! Nice!
6. Logging into the game at 3am (don't tell my wife!) and you'll still find people online playing, so for an online indie game, the community is thriving pretty well.
