Cosmic Smash. That time Pong and Arkanoid had a baby

Recommended Posts

 

On the surface Cosmic Smash is extremely simple. It's half Pong and half Arkanoid...but of course because it was Sega and the Dreamcast that simple formula was bent until it became Cosmic Smash. Visuals...amazing! Soundtrack...awesome! Gameplay...easy to learn yet hard to master! From start to finish Cosmic Smash just feels like the best possible late stage Dreamcast game we could have hoped to get!

Interesting game for sure.  Thanks for sharing.  Much appreciated.

I didn't play it much (probably just once) but for me something doesn't click. I also had trouble understanding Space Channel 5, but it clearly oozes style like Rez and Jet Set Radio. However, there's something off about Cosmic Smash to me. For instance, I don't like the character animaton, it looks kinda awkward (compared to Space Channel 5 again).

the character definitely moves oddly but to me it seems like a stylistic choice
