Overall, Doughlings: Invasion is a surprisingly fun time. Though it appears on the surface to be little more than an unpleasant looking clone of Space Invaders, its surprisingly deep gameplay elements, well sloped difficulty curve, and some banging tunes make it a simple yet effective bit of arcade fun for short bursts. Though players are unlikely to pick it up for more than an hour due to the lack of multiplayer or meaningful rewards for completion, that hour will at least be entertaining. Don't let the ugly graphics put you off; if you've got a spare bit of dough, it might be worth a look.

Doughlings: Arcade brings an experience based on Space Invaders under a contemporary visual presentation and it does a decent job at that. Where things go a bit off track is when the game prevents us from simply enjoying some quick, simple gaming sessions and when it imposes a staggering and merciless difficulty level, which ends up harming the experience and turning what could be a perfectly fun Space Invaders descendant into a game that can be dropped in favour of other titles available at the Nintendo Switch eShop.

Hero Concept's additions help to break up the inherent monotony of Space Invaders, but Doughlings: Invasion is still a game that's fun for short bursts only. That's not a deal killer, of course, just something to consider before buying.

Regardless of these issues, if I were given the option of playing the original Space Invaders or Doughlings: Invastion, I would absolutely prefer the newer title thanks to those new mechanics and its fun presentation.
