Spaceteam will test your teamwork skills

Coordinate and work with your team to navigate through space.

Spaceteam is a multiplayer game that requires you to work with your team to navigate your ship through space. It's a little silly and there really isn't any kind of skill involved, but it's still a fun way of spending an evening with friends.

Spaceteam requires two or more players, and they must be in the same room as you. Once you all turn the dial on the main page to Play, the game will detect other players in the room and will send your characters to a Waiting Room. The characters and other game graphics are reminiscent of the block-style design of old Atari games. There are no real instructions for getting started, so it took us a minute or two to figure out how to proceed from the Waiting Room to the actual game (hint: hold down on the large green button). The object of the game is pretty simple: Call out control panel instructions to team members to navigate the ship. The instructions appear at the top of each player's screen. We played with two players, and have to admit that we got quite a laugh yelling nonsensical words to each other and getting confused in the process. We made it successfully past two levels, but the third level got frustrating when we couldn't see the control panel dials because of an outbreak of green slime. We ended up crashing a few times and quickly grew bored because we couldn't progress any further in the game.

Still, we think Spaceteam is worth a download if you're looking for a fun, one-off game to play with a group of friends.
