This review won't do Cargo Command justice. It looks like a simple 2d platformer/shooter with some low gravity physics fun... and it is, but it's also much more. Cargo Commander is impressive in it's ability to draw you in despite being a 2d 3rd person game. You will freak out when hordes of aliens start to overwhelm you, you'll panic as you coast through the void of space as your oxygen rockets toward empty, the black hole ripping apart everything around you as you scramble to find a way into a pressurized container. You'll feel the sense of isolation and frustration of being alone in space, away from your family. The game is drenched in a purposeful pervading sense of loneliness. It's a wonderful immersive game, and despite losses and defeat the game is designed where each trip adds up to some progress, making you stronger and more able to take on challenges next time.
A note about the story elements of the game (spoiler?- speculation mostly):
I have a theory about the enemies that litter the random cargo containers are actually mutated versions of your player character from alternate timelines. There's some major weirdness going on with the black holes and the fact that you can continue playing where you left off after death. Additionally the enemies drop Caps, the games currency which is also a literal baseball cap, identical to the one you wear.
Summary: Pick up Cargo Commander.
