37w ago - Candygun Games Managing Director Roger Joswig invites fans to pull off the ultimate heist in Dollar Dash on PlayStation Network today!
To quote: Everyone here on the development team at Candygun Games is excited to see Dollar Dash release on the PlayStation Network.
Creating a game with local multiplayer mayhem was at the top of our priorities as we designed it to be entertaining to play with friends on the couch or online. We are quite happy with the depth of multiplayer options and configurations - there are so many ways to play.
In Dollar Dash, players control a cartoon thief and attempt to grab as much cash as they can carry in their bag. To secure victory, players must bring their bag of cash to a getaway car all while avoiding pratfalls from other thieves who are out to collect the cash for themselves.
Luckily, there are crazy amounts of weapons and power-ups to utilize in effort to gather the most amounts of cash and stand on top of the piles of cash to be called the number-one thief.
Speaking of weapons, Dollar Dash has 20 crazy ones: from hunting thieves by throwing a cactus pot at them or squashing them with a giant boulder, the game is truly mad. Players can throw down oil slicks or portable holes to shake off pursuers.
