So I got this as part of an indie bundle of 8 other games for $1.50, and upon looking at the store page, I became worried.
Barely touched on steam for two and a half years and already had mixed reviews, I approached this game today with caution. The opening was cute. I liked the pop-art style intro. It reminded me of something like Little Big Planet.
Then I saw those things up close.
Those...creepy, soulless eyes...begging to die.
Space Ark is basically an Arkanoid game (hooray for puns), where you bounce your Little Big Planet knockoffs around and about hitting objects this game calls "DNA" and helping these creatures restore there planets to its (un)rightful glory.
I was very skeptical about how this game would be, especially with how the screenshots were kind of a turnoff. But honestly, this game wasn't too bad. In fact it got a little challenging, because not only are you controlling your yoga ball around the stage, but you also have control in navigating your sock puppets that you call "animals."
Granted, it's not as challenging as other arkanoid games that you can find here on steam, such as Ionball, but if you like to have color in your environment and like bouncing up and down cute...soulless...evil...creatures, then you'll enjoy this game.
Though at a price tag of $5, I say wait, look for a sale, or look somewhere else.
This game is worth no more than your typical dollar app, and shouldn't be priced any higher than that.
Other than that, I (personally) can't recommend this game to anyone I know that is into arkanoid but likes this type of theme.
p.s. This game cannot be played at full screen, so that's another thing to note about.
