Spaceteam

What better way to celebrate with family and friends than playing a great party game? Spaceteam let’s you team up with 3 other players to twist dials, change sliders, turn knobs, and more — but you also have to shout out instructions to other players, all of whom have to do the same simultaneously.

Spaceteam is such a blast that iMore’s very own Serentiy Caldwell included it as one of her best indie games for iPhone and iPad.

“I’ve played with friends, family, co-workers, and complete strangers and every time has been whimsical and unique.”

Spaceteam is a surefire way to take any party to the next level!
