SOCIALIZE AND TRIUMPH

Sit back and grab your gamepads: xDasher is a fast paced couch coop game for 2-4 players, which leverages both competition and cooperation. Triumph over and with your friends, fight for high scores and feel victorious if you made it together!

GAMEPLAY

Battle your way through increasingly challenging stages defeating waves of enemies and demanding bosses. The key to success is coordinating your team, precise dashing, good timing and a thorough understanding of both enemies and environment. Enemies can only be defeated if you work together! 

LEVEL

This demo includes three stages and one boss; presented in a fixed sequence.

Each stage is hand crafted and in the final game each run will presumably consist of a number of randomly picked stages. This mechanism would allow for hundreds of non-repeating runs, while ensuring high quality stage designs. After clearing all stages within a run a unique boss battle puts your team to the ultimate test! 

ONLINE LEADERBOARDS

In the spirit of arcade competition your team will fight for the highest score on the online leaderboard. As a team you increase your score by killing enemies. As an individual player, you can earn bonuses, but also suffer penalties for your team's score. Everyones actions count!
