Spaceteam is a local co-op multiplayer party game, where a group of players shout directions at the player who has control of the spaceship.
Pro The amenable design lends itself well to small or large gatherings
The game can be played locally by 2 to 4 players usually, whereas with an experimental massive mode it can be played with 8. Different play options allow the game to be played by a small or large number of people, so regardless of the size of the party or gathering, the game can still be played.
Pro Party game aspect makes for frantic and hilarious gameplay
Having to shout out the names of the made-up controls, that need to be used by the group, can be very amusing. Each player must understand the directions shouted at them so to correctly navigate the ship. This can become daunting very quickly, making for a frantic, exhilarating style of gameplay.
Pro One person can easily share their in-app-purchased extras in multiplayer
Spaceteam offers in-app purchases for extras. The extras are completely optional (such as additional names or symbols). Also, in order for a team to play with these extras, only one player is required to have purchased them.
Pro Interactive distractions obfuscate the screen, creating more challenge on top of the base gameplay
There can be a number of distractions that will try to cover or make less visible the control panel of the player. Ooze will cover parts of the screen, and panels will slide out of place. The player needs to stay on top of these by putting the panels back in place or by swiping away the ooze, in order to clearly see the controls they are required to interact with. These distractions create an interesting challenge to the players, as they make the gameplay more hectic than it already is.
