    In the end, Dollar Dash is amusing but only in small bursts.

    You'll wonder why you didn't just stick with multiplayer greats like Bomberman. [May 2013, p.89]

    Dollar Dash isn’t necessarily a bad game; it’s just not a particularly compelling one. The overabundance of items turns the potential for a fun experience into a chaotic mess. I can’t imagine a scenario where I would choose this to play online. There are both better ways to spend $10, and better multiplayer experiences to be had.

    In its best moments, the concept could give Bomberman a run for his money. But the fun is short lived and gets too hectic too soon for its own good.

    There isn't anything inherently wrong with Dollar Dash. It's just a multiplayer only game that doesn't do a lot different and as a result feels overpriced for what we get.

    Games don’t get much more generic than Dollar Dash. Everything, from the graphics and gameplay, to the soundtrack is an exercise in mediocrity.

    Dollar Dash isn’t great. It’s sometimes pretty OK but only after you get your head around the obtuse controls and are playing with real humans. It’s probably a bit better with people you know, but that would require your friends to all purchase the game as well.

    Dollar Dash is a serviceable game, even if it doesn't aim very high. If you're bored of constant deathmatches in Spelunky's multiplayer versus mode, or you've saturated every last round of Bomberman and the many clones it spawned over the years, Dollar Dash will give you a few evenings of enjoyment.

    The math for Dollar Dash to be fun is there, but the numbers don’t add up. One crucial variable was unaccounted for: other interested parties.

    It falls just short of its goal of being a Bomberman killer, but just short of Bomberman is still a pretty good place to be, and Dollar Dash is definitely worth looking into.
