    Starwhal is meant to be enjoyed on the couch with three of your friends, with only one shared screen to worry about, simple controls that are easy to pick up, and fast, frenetic gameplay that can be enjoyed over and over.

    Starwhal was built for local multiplayer, and that's where it shines best. Its hilarious flip-and-flop gameplay gets a lot of mileage out of the numerous modes and stages, and the bright neon graphics are delightfully '80s.

    Whether it's by yourself or together at a party, Starwhal will leave you frustrated beyond belief in a way that will simply just make you laugh. Although the hard challenges were a little too hard and over the top even for a hard setting, overall Starwhal hits it on the head and is definitely a game you should play.

    Weird. Colourful. Quirky. Entertaining. Funny.

    A fun and engaging local multiplayer game.

    There's plenty of customisation available to keep it fresh and the inclusion of AI opponents and a challenge mode will give this more longevity than other couch co-op titles released recently. However, some will find the controls frustrating and it is likely that the frantic madness of multiplayer will have a limited shelf life once the initial surprise of the silliness wears off.

    The cost is too high and the extras too slim to make this excellent. [Feb 2016, p.86]
