This is a sibling video game battle at its most challenging, most silly, and most absurd. Expect to be frustrated and annoyed on a regular basis as another ship sneaks up behind you and blows you to smithereens, just as you were about to make it to the next level. Despite (or because of) that, Captain Forever Remix is strangely addictive. It requires some strategy; building a ship that steers well, can defend itself from multiple sides, and has the firepower to take on stronger enemies is no simple feat. Plus, it requires some fast finger action and the ability to think on your feet.

Where will you attach the swanky new weapon on your ship? Will you replace or repair damaged parts? You don't have a lot of time to decide. The game has the general feeling of an early '90s arcade game with matching juvenile humor. It can be very difficult to get past later levels and requires quite a bit of patience to destroy enough low-level ships to get the parts to defeat higher-level ships, which is probably the biggest con. Some kids may lose patience and become frustrated. But if you like a challenge, Captain Forever Remix always has you feeling like you were this close to making it to the next round, which will keep you coming back for more.
