Have you ever wondered what it would be like to have a stinger like a mosquito and stab stuff with it? Well then STAB STAB STAB! is a game for you! I downloaded it from the Xbox store mainly because of the fun sounding name, but also because it had 4 player co-op. I’m always on the lookout for 4 player co-op games for whenever we have a Girls Gaming Weekend with the Geeky Gals 🙂
I tried it out about a week ago when I had some friends over and we were totally not prepared for what was to come! At first it felt so sucky (pun intended) because the controls were so different and the long-legged mosquito mutants you control were really slow and weird. After a while we got the hang of it though and started mowing through waves of tumours and other mosquito-mutants that attacked us, and it was disturbing but also HILARIOUS! We couldn’t stop playing! XD
You can get power ups, like grabby arms to pull your enemy towards you and hold them while you stab them, or pinocchio which gives you a longer stabby nose, or multiplying thorns all around you, you’ll stab in all directions! Or wings which makes it easier to manoeuvre around the stage, also shooting stabby nose or tumours!?! There’s also a bunch of different stages with various qualities, like spiked walls, traps, blocks etc that can both help you or kill you 😀
There’s no music really, just weird and gross sound effects. But this kind of adds to the obscure atmosphere 🙂
It’s strangely satisfactory to grab on to a tumour with legs and just STAB it and suck the life out of it 😀 The game is available on both Steam, Xbox One, Playstation 4 and Nintendo Switch, so just grab a bunch of friends and get stabbing! You can play both single player, co-op together up to 4 people against waves of enemies, or stab you friends in versus mode with up to 8 players!
