A Duel Hand Disaster: Trackher
Top Critic Average
Developer: Ask An Enemy Studios
Genres: Arcade, Action
A Duel Hand Disaster: Trackher is the only split-screen single player twin stick risk 'em up in which your score is meaningless unless you exist. You control two ships simultaneously. Destroy the left to earn points, while recovering resources on the right to multiply those points. The left side does not take damage. The right side does. Above all you must extract with your score. Playing ‘til death is not an option.
EXTRACT with your score and move on to the next Tier, or jump right back into the one you were on. You will now be able to wager part or all of your previous score, essentially creating a bucket of points that you can earn as a bonus. Choose wisely. Extracting before reaching the wager will mean the wager will become a penalty.

A Duel Hand Disaster: Trackher is a unique twist on the standard split-screen formula, offering players a chance to solo the experience. Testing your multi-tasking skills is great, although it may be too hard for some people. The separate yet connected gameplay design kept me engaged, even if some of the extra challenges were a pain to deal with.
Despite its cheap price tag, it remains hard to recommend due to its non-intuitive nature without a tutorial. I'd highly suggest that AskAnEnemyStudios considers adding a tutorial section if they want more people to take this game on Switch seriously. Personally, I don't see the game being worth anyone's hard-earned cash, especially for parents looking for a game to pick up for their child.
