Help these heroic pets take back Earth in this Shoot ‘em up adventure! Blast through waves of the evil cybernetic fish armada Dark Tide, and fight to take back the Solar System as the members of Team B.ARK: good boy Barker the Dog, Felicity the wise-cracking Cat, Lucio the overprotective Bear and cautious-but-quick Marv the Rabbit. Dark Tide has taken over the Earth and are spreading their reign of terror into outer space! Hop in a mech for up to 4-player co-op as you battle through multiple galactic stages full of hand-animated characters and enemies. Each member of Team B.ARK has their own unlockable backstory and unique gameplay style to fit their fuzzy personality. Pilot a furry friend solo or fuse mech abilities with family and friends to unleash each character’s out-of-this-world Super Attack capable of completely clearing the screen of incoming enemy forces! Face-off against challenging boss battles as you go up against the likes of Spike the Narwhal, Vic the Sea Snake, and a whole slew of intimidating bad guys dead set on destroying you at all costs. Work as a team, but be sure to grab the most plutonium from defeated enemies to see how your high-score ranks against your fellow teammates. Can you defeat the Dark Tide before their deep-sea forces completely take over the Solar System?! Squad up and fight to take back the Earth in B.ARK!

B.ARK is a fun and incredibly chaotic shooter, one best played with friends. The levels move quickly and throw a variety of enemies and bosses at you, despite some of the bosses feeling a bit repetitive. Still, the lovable cast of characters, the quirky concept, the ability to rescue your teammates, and the push for players to be competitive all fuse together to create a fun, if short-lived experience that I found well worth tackling over a night with friends.

B.ARK is a fun (if awkwardly named) shooter that could use a bit more content and final polish. It's hard not to like the game for its colorful presentation and fun gameplay. But it's also hard to love it, knowing what it lacks at present. Make sure to grab Adventures of Pip first, but add B.ARK to your eShop wishlist.

However, it's not really for hardcore shmup fans looking for a more challenging and classic experience; much of its charm comes from passing out a few Joy-Con and shooting down giant mechanized starfish. Solid performance and good controls are pluses, even if a playthrough won't take you all that long. Those who are generally looking for a more laidback, multiplayer focused title won't be barking up the wrong tree if they give this one a spin.

B.ARK definitely looks like a promising shmup with its cartoon visuals and variety of animal chums but it falls apart at the seams when you compare it to its genre predecessors. It's still kind of fun at times, though, especially with its 4 player co-op component.
