Dadish 2 is a fun and fast-paced arcade game that’s simple to pick up but hard to put down. For $9.99, you can get the Turbo Pack, which includes all 130 levels of Dadish 2! It looks like it would be great for parties or just around the family room on those lazy Saturday mornings where everyone has nothing better to do than play games together.
Welcome back to Dadish’s bizarre world of good guy veggies, bad guy fast food, and even worse child-rearing advice. Dadish 2 continues to expand on the premise of easy platforming, vintage aesthetics, and (actual) dad jokes established in the original game. This should be evident from the start, but first, let’s talk about what’s new.
What you’ve been consuming has piqued my interest.
Oh, look, we’ve added some more levels! Despite the fact that, duh, it isn’t very shocking. The levels are much less formulaic than they were in Dadish. Sure, the first few stages will familiarize players with the game’s fundamentals, but the complexity quickly increases in contrast to the original. There are also new auto-scroll stages featuring Burgurgular, the first boss from Dadish. You may wonder who Burgurgular is. This pleasant gentleman, on the other hand, is a huge burger who only wants to make up for his wrongdoings in the first game. Not to mention the fact that your child gets friends with him for whatever reason. It’s the same kid you labeled dumb in the previous game, by the way. By the way, I don’t believe he’s permitted to be within 50 meters of a school.
Burgurgular is the world’s quickest (and only) sentient burger.
Instead of fleeing away from Dadish as he tries to sleep, his children come to see him at work this time. Everything goes wrong, as planned, and they all disappear, and it’s the same old narrative, same old song and dance from then on. But, as the kids point out from time to time, Dadish’s workplace is a little unfriendly. Fire, spikes, and bosses dispatched by Space Lord Durnak, who is not the same as Lord Durnak from Dadish, are among the dangers. He’s completely changed, and he’s obviously not the same person. You can rely on us.
Space! Space! Oh, how I adore the vastness of space!
The only change between each level is the fresh addition of adversaries, apart from the increasing difficulty and Burgurgular levels. The highlight is undoubtedly a massive hot dog bun that is a pain in the buttocks and keeps tossing sausages at you. Several levels also have Indiana Jones-style “run away from the boulder” sequences that make extensive use of springs to bounce about and leap over gaps. Cannons like to those seen in Donkey Kong Country, vines to swing over, pinball flippers, and more are all present. There’s nothing revolutionary in here, but it’s more of what was previously fantastic, so there’s nothing to complain about.
I’m going to take a swing.
Dadish 2’s visual design is identical to that of the original game, a “in-between transition from 8-bit to 16-bit” type of graphics reminiscent of classic platformers. Sole a few new opponent sprites have been added to the mix, which is the only visual enhancement. Furthermore, the sound design is mostly comparable to that of the original game, with many of the same components being reused. The music is repetitious throughout, yet it fits the game’s design, which pays tribute to classic platformers.
Dadish 2 might have easily been a DLC pack for the first game in the broad scheme of things, but considering its low price, it’s a no-brainer to pick up this sequel if you loved the first. Sure, it’s simply new levels running on the same engine, but that’s not all awful. It’s a fun time if you liked Dadish, but if you didn’t like that bite-sized indie platformer to begin with, this one won’t persuade you otherwise.
The aesthetics are almost identical to the original game, with the exception of a few new opponents. It’s cute, but it’s hardly jaw-dropping.
Dadish 2 introduces additional levels, opponents, and other features. Overall, though, the gameplay is essentially the same.
Is it cheating if you take the audio from the first game and use it in the second? I don’t believe so, but it’s also not a great leap forward as one would anticipate.
Dadish 2 was a lot more enjoyable than the first because to the increased challenge, new adversaries, and the few stages featuring Burgurgular.
