Broken, broken, broken. Anyway, calm down, there aren't any tits in this game. If they were, they'd be broken tits, and nobody wants to see that. Double D Dodgeball-- 2D get it-- is a simple dodgeball game by Yuke's being released via XBox Live Arcade. My first note to Yuke's is that their official site for this game is goddamn hard to find.
Anyway, the basic premise is Space Invaders Dodgeball, with the Galaga-era graphics that implies. Now, playing dodgeball on a pixelated starfield with little red and blue aliens is an experience I am willing to put ten bucks up for. I am an anomaly. Judging from online reactions, the graphics, along with the lack of boobs, have repulsed absolutely everyone. Their loss. And Yuke's' loss. And my loss. Because this is a pretty good game, and it takes a lot of people to play, and I'm not sure a lot of people are going to buy it.
It's pretty straightforward stuff. There are a number of different rule and stage variations that change the intricacies of the game, but dodgeball is dodgeball. Throw-- sometimes super throw-- the damn balls at each other and if you don't catch them, you're out. The left analog handles movement, and the right analog controls the direction your player faces, so movement and aiming are independent as in Robotron or Geometry Wars or any number of XBLA shooters hoping to cash in on the latter. This is important, as you have to be facing the ball to catch it, and you have to make a button press to do so (perfect timing results in a faster return). Hitting a player in the back is obviously the best way to go, and that opens up its own mind games, especially in Eastern-style rules where players who are out go to the sidelines to surround the opposing team.
You can play one of five different characters, each with its own function on the team: the one that's good at catching, the one that throws fast, the runner, the oddball character, that kind of thing. Between these characters there's a lot of room for team-building strategy, mind games, fakeouts, trick shots, and so on.
But I can't tell you much more than that about team-building and multiplayer because you know what? The multiplayer is the broken part. The game disconnects you from Live as soon as it starts: then Live stops working until you reset the damn system. This is why, as of now, the game is being patched by Yuke's and is no longer available for download. There is only so much teamwork that can go on-- and so much fun you can have-- in one-player exhibition matches between you and a bunch of AI drones. So yes, I recommend Double D Dodgeball, but I don't recommend it right now. In fact, I deserve a refund. But you can't buy it right now, so you don't have to worry about all that. So buy it when you can buy it, okay?
