The basic concept is kinda fun, but you will quickly realize that the game plays exactly the same way during the first 10 minutes of the game as it does in the next 10 hours of the game. Basically no new concepts, enemies, weapons, abilities, etc. are added.

There's basically 5 or so different types of enemies that mostly vary based on size (this guy is the same as the last one except a big larger, with more health and more damage!). The cargo you collect has no meaning or purpose other than "collect them all because you can!"

The upgrade system can almost trick you into playing more, until you realize that the number of upgrades are tiny and they reset at the end of every day, so the only sense of progression comes from ranking up, which gives tiny, boring advantages (often something like "you start with this small upgrade without having to buy it!"

The general concept is "you activate a big magnet on your ship, then rectangular cargo containers crash into your ship and you run from container to container collecting items, ammo, killing enemies, etc." Except the enemies are limited, there's 4 weapons, and the building layouts quickly repeat themselves. It's vaguely amusing for the first hour or so, and then you quickly get tired of it. I got all of the achievements because I'm a terrible person with a terrible problem, but I wouldn't recommend getting it for any other reason.

This game is great! Before I wrote a bad review because it would'nt let me online but I recently found out that it was just because of my laptop. I dont know what it is that didnt let me play it up I'll have a look later, right now I got some cargo to collect!

I still think its a bad idea to make a singleplayer game only playable with a constant internet connection though

This little indie game was brought into my light by NerdCubed. Although its really wasnt what I was expecting I still enjoyed the game enough to play.

Your a guy with a beard in the middle of space. Your job is to pull in random cargo contaners, invade and loot said cargo, and get back your home ship before you get sucked into a worm hole forever to be dead in space.

There alot of loot to collect and sectors are made with anything you can type. Yes, ♥♥♥♥♥ is a sector you can visit and play. Each sector has its own seed number so every sector has diffrent boxs and diffrent loot.

I give the game 7/10

Goodluck and have fun, But most importent Get back Home!

This game can be very frustrating at times, but overall I've had a bunch of fun playing! Despite being indie-developed I find that it is a very solid game and the creators have put 100% effort into the production of it. Also there is a bunch of humour in the game wich is great.

7.5/10 would recommend
