Dub Dash (by Headup) is an old game. Never the less, it was brought up on our radar for its insane GoPro like graphics, upbeat soundtrack, and general colorfulness overall. This is our long overdue review of Dub Dash…
For anyone wondering just how old Dub Dash actually is, it was last updated in 2016 on Google Play so yeah… 3 years of no updates…
Set on a narrowtrack that almost seems to wrap around the bottom of your screen a little like the footage you get from either an ultra-wide angle camera (like a GoPro) or maybe even a 360 camera, Dub Dash looks super futuristic even now in 2019 – which is actually quite a feat on its own.
If you’re having trouble picturing it, you can take a look at the video below.
Once you’ve gotten used to the graphics enough to focus some of your attention onto the actual gameplay, you will be faced with what appears to be fairly simple controls. Played by tapping on the left and right sides of the screen in order to shift your tyre-like player to the left or right for a short amount of time, Dub Dash is all about rhythmically avoiding spikes that stick out from the sides of the track to the beat of the BGM.
Although the concept is simple and easy enough to grasp – especially if you’ve played REALLY challengingsuch as Geometry Dash – it is still remarkably easy to slip up and GAME OVER in Dub Dash, making this one of those games you can’t take lightly.
For a game that was initially released back in 2015 Dub Dash has held up surprisingly well when compared to other modern games we review on Edamame Reviews.
Lastly, one massive plus when playing older games is that they mostly run fine on today’s low-end hardware. If you’re rocking a budget smartphone from 2018 or 2019 this game should run amazingly!
It took us a while, but we’ve finally done it. This was our review of Dub Dash by Headup!
