Avatar Cash Dash Review
Avatar Cash Dash is simply a game about dashing for cash.
I tried to think about something witty to lead with for this Xbox Live Indie game review, but unfortunately, Cash Dash leaves me devoid of ideas.
Cash Dash plays like a rejected Mario Party minigame that was never meant to see the light of day.
Up to four players can join each other locally with their avatar to see who can collect the most coins and win. That’s it.
The Gold Rush mode is simply collecting said coins. Rare Coins mode adds a little bit of variety by having the coins pop up randomly around the circular playing field. Up and Down, the third and last mode, throws in red coins for players to avoid.
Aside from lacking gameplay variety or modes, Cash Dash is also lacking in the department that counts most—fun.
To make things worse, the hillbilly banjo inspired music is absolutely wretched.
The developers deserve credit for allowing users to play their custom soundtracks during bouts of coin collecting. However, there isn’t much point in wasting 80 Microsoft points ($1) on Cash Dash when there are much better games for the same price point or just at a handful of points more.
