''Woah Dave!'' (sic) is a one-screen platformer in the vein of ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros'', created by Choice Provisions of ''VideoGame/BitTrip'' fame. The protagonist, Dave, is tasked with fighting an [[EndlessGame endless army]] of aliens that drop out of the sky in eggs. Dave must do so by picking up and throwing skull bombs, the coveted Woah Block, or even other eggs at hatched aliens. If an alien crawls into the lava at the bottom of the screen, it will "evolve" into a more dangerous enemy that yields more pennies.
