关于这款游戏

Ring Runner combines the fast-paced action of space combat with the rich story and skill variety of an RPG.

Trek across the universe in a 30 hour long story-driven campaign based on a companion Sci Fi novel, or challenge 6 scenarios alone, cooperatively, or competitively through local or online multiplayer.

Choose from 60 customizable hulls that act as templates for 400+ wildly-varied skills. Level layouts, backgrounds, and AI enemies are all procedurally generated, yielding billions of challenges.

Story


You awake from unelective brain surgery to find key memory centers of your brain missing. They've been replaced by Nero, your peanut-butter-craving neuro-Hud, who'll guide you through the universal super-highways known as The Rings. If you survive fiery trench runs, flail-swinging gladiators, and feuding trash moguls, you'll discover that you're a Sage, capable of rewriting the physical laws with your thoughts.

But beware The Extinguishers!

In the interests of universal order, The Consortium of the Inner Rings has slated the Sages for extinction, plunging the cosmos into a war with casualties measured in galaxies. You'll play a pivotal role in this terrible battle... if you can find out who you are.

Just completed main story.
Ok, this game is a hidden gem. Just wow. Buy it.
Story really rich and interesting to read, you'll forget about skip button. Characters are acting like real, no stupid speech templates, also unexpectedly good humour (IMHO good humour - legendary tier of rarity in videogames).
And of course gameplay, it's simple, but so damn engrossing. Ship customization can confuse at first, but after you understand it RAINBOW BEGINS!

A fantastic story in the package with a fantastic game to match, if top-down 2d real-time space battles and very satisfying levels of customization are your thing then this is the game for you! Singleplayer campaign coop is samescreen local coop only. The multiplayer modes are where online coop comes from.

This game has a ridiculously long introductory stage that doesn't serve very well as a hook. Stick with it, though; it gets good. The semi-serious sci-fi story is entertaining, and the twin-stick shooting gameplay is well done indeed. Customizing ships with a variety of weaponry and power-ups adds another layer to the game, and the vast collection of challenge achievements improves the replay value. Oh, and there's multiplayer (with AI for those who want to play alone).

Wow! This unassuming little gem is one of the best values out there. It's a total steal even at full price as it's packed with an enormous amount of content and ship customization.

Ring Runners is essentially an isometric space ship shooter, but boy is it brimming with goodies. The main campaign consists of over a thousand missions and each one is set up with 30 seconds of storytelling. The missions have quite a lot of variety to them and only last maybe 5 minutes so this game is great for short bursts.

The ship customization is incredibly deep, yet quite approachable. All other games should take notes from Ring Runners on how to build a great game with a very simple premise.

This game is quite linear and even when it "opens up" it's still extremely linear, so know that going in. That said, the ship customization, writing and combat are all top notch. If you're a fan of games like Escape Velocity or Space Pirates vs Zombies, you should buy this game right now.

This is one of the best games i've played in my life.
Pros:
+Funny - There are lot of funny dialogues and interactions in the campaing
+++Gameplay - The mechanics are really great. I'm fairly new to space shooters, this one made me want to explore the genre a little more
++Diversity - The game counts with different ship classes you can choose, each one with strategic diferences from each other
+Multiplayer - From the little i've played, the multiplayer seemed balanced and a lot of fun
Cons:
-Controls - Controls are hard to get and harder to master, it adds some difficulty to the game and people often count this as a pro, but in my opinion it dissuades a lot of people from playing this.
= Graphics - A game doesn't have to be a graphic masterpiece to be good, but it's worth mentioning that the graphics are really simple

Solid game with a good replayability and a good price, highly recommended.

I didn't know if I would enjoy this game or not but it turned out to be spectacular.

Definitely worth the 10 bucks, heck, with this amount of content it could even be worth more. This games comes complete, no DLC ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥. Puts triple A companies to shame.

Full story with dialogue and characters you actually care about? Check (granted you actually read the stuff)
Fully customizable ships with hundreds of unlockable equips? Check
Multiple gamemodes in single and multiplayer? Check

I think the game is a port from Xbox Live Arcade? The controls take some time to get used to but afterwards it gets better especially after unlocking ships with easier maneuverability. The campaign starts off with a pretty long tutorial/introductory stages which introduces you to various ships, controls, and gameplay elements. But all this is part of the story and helps you get used to the controls.

The music is kinda funky in my opinion but it's nothing negative. The UI can definitely be improved some, especially the hanger interface which needs more information shown. Instead of popping open a new 'window' to view equipment descriptions, it could show when you move your mouse over or something. Something else I found kinda annoying, very minor still, is the dialogue boxes. It pops up frequently to tell the story which could be a little interruptive. It would be AWSOME if the campaign was fully voiced but that's just me asking for too much.

Definitely recommend.

Really solid game with plenty of depth without being overly complicated.
Many differnt customization options to make your ship for just the right role, and easy to get all the parts you need because it is not grind heavy. All of the parts are usauble, and there isnt nessesary any bad ships or equipment.
Overall the game just feels right, with sounds and great physics.
Takes some times to get used to the flow, yet worth giving it a try.

The opposite to Titanfall in weapon and perk count.

What I liked:
  • RPG Space Shooter
  • So much variey in perks and weapons types
  • Great humor in the writing
What You Need to Know:
  • 30+ hour singleplayer campgain
  • So much options to upgrade, that you can get lost in what to do ( Has prebuilt ships if you don't want to get in that nerdy stuff)
  • You will read alot since there is no voice acting
  • Tried to get back into the game after taking a long break, so hard to do that
  • Only got 25% of the campgain done

My Score:
B

Paid $4 in a bundle
Have not completed game yet

It's pretty good for the most part. Controls take some getting used to, and there's often so many abilities on your ship that it's hard to focus, but you can change that later. As another reviewer mentioned, the "intro" is ridiculously long.

One major irritation is that the game is very linear. You only get to make choices every now and then, and even when you DO, the game still forces you to play a different way. For example, there are a LOT of missions where you get to choose the ship you want to play and set up all of its options, which is really cool. But then, about halfway through the mission, through one dumb plot line or another, they make you play a different ship with a vastly different play style.

Another minor irritation, is that there are no "lives" so if you die, you have to start the mission all over again. That would be okay, IF you didn't have to play in a playstyle that you didn't want to play in.

Ring Runner follows FTL into the illusive zone of flawless indie game glory. It is almost criminal that it took this game as long as it did to get on Steam. Addictive gameplay with an incredibly smooth UI, and a staggering amount of flexibility, with a depth and sophistication that will continue to surprise you. There are countless ships, with a fitting system of a quality you will be hard pressed to find outside of EVE Online. The story and dialogue is surprisingly good, at times goofy, often trippy and surreal and almost always hilarious. The graphics are absolutely beautiful, proof that it is not always necessary to melt your video card.

One comment which might be helpful, and which is only negative depending on your preferences, is in regard to how episodic the game is. I did not necessarily expect an "open world" but did expect some greater degree of openness to the campaign than I encountered. There really is none, the campaign is very episodic. Initially this may seem like a significant down side, but it gradually picks up and at least provides you with a little bit of choice.

A campaign and maps with significantly more "openness" I think would easily have pushed this onto a short list of some of the best games ever made, but as is Ring Runner is truly a jewel worth far more than the measily $10 they are asking for.

A week ago I honestly hadn't heard of this game, I bought it on a whim, a longing for SPAZ2, and being a huge fan of RPG/Shooter type games, came together at a moment of weakness.

I was completely blown away, it was the most fun I've had in a game all year, and probably my favorite shooter of all time, a title previously held by Tyrian. I just can't praise you enough, it was fun the entire way. I just finished the campaign, and I really just loved it.

The ship control is a bit wonky at first, but after a few missions you should have it under control. And after a few hours you'll be amazed at some of the stuff you can pull off in speedy ships. The humor and writing style of the game might not be for everyone, but I really wouldn't let that stop you from buying the game. Remove all the words and the game is still an amazingly solid Shooter with a huge amount of customization, and balanced so that no ship type ever feels like the end all ship, I spent a solid 25 hours beating the game on Sage(normal) and will probalby put another 10-15 hours unlocking and customizing my ship.

Seiously, if you liked SPAZ, Tyrian, Raptor, or any shooter game in general buy this game. You won't regret it.

This is literally my favorite game ever. (Yes, I have played a ton of games from many genres.) It is so because of its unique combination of story, humor, space, RPG style, gameplay variety, strategy, and newtonian (correct) physics. The game is completely unlike anything I have ever before played or since. I have now played almost 250 hours, and it is the only game I have ever purchased twice just in case anything ever happened to steam I would not want to lose this game. I also really appreciate how clean the game is—that when my children play it I won’t have to worry about swearing or anything like that.

The main story is well written and takes about 30 to 40 hours to complete. Although it is primarily space combat, the game also features circuit racing, stealth missions, tower defense, many rpg elements, zombie survival, arcade games, a plethora of cultural references, fast food, and nonlinear gameplay -- all skillfully integrated into the story. On top of that, the well done ship customization makes the game almost endlessly replayable. $10 for the best game ever.

I bought this game during a sale because it looked cool.

... I never knew I was buying one of the best games I've ever played.

Everything is top-notch... gameplay, graphics, storyline. I haven't played a game this immersive since the Escape Velocity series.

Stay the hell away if you want to have a life.

A great space flight RPG with plenty of content. Ships have basic control similar to the old "Asteroids" PC game (you thrust to go forwards, and turning does not stop your momentum) and have plenty of hull types, weapons, and abilities to customise with. The game is story-driven with light humour, but has a rather slow-paced intro galaxy that may put people off (however, it can be skipped!)
Missions are basically set in closed arenas where you perform the task required, so this is not a fully open space sandbox (which wouldnt even make sense with a 2D game in space anyway).
The graphics are nice and tidy, and when the combat gets going you can end up with great little light shows.
All in all, RR:FotS has enough to get you addicted, and very few real drawbacks considering the price it can picked up for.

Just completed the campaign and must say this is a very well done game, solid 5/5 as my complains are trivial compared to the quality of everything else.

It does take a bit of investment to get into as the ships have A LOT of controls which is just plain confusing and disorienting until you get the hang of it, but the depth when you do is impressive.

The story is also surprisingly deep and well thought out (and long in a good way). The maps in each segment of the game are quite small with not a lot to do besides fight (you could say it is designed around pure tactics with no strategy) but that aspect is so well done that I wasn't bothered by it.

A complaint I do have is that restarting when dying in the campaign is often annoying because it sends you through the dialogue each time. There is an option to skip the dialogue, but it only skips a section, if there are multiple (with camera animations between), you have to wait until the next pops up to skip it, so it can take many seconds to retry (which might not sound like much but when you are on a difficult mission with lots of dying, it is quite frustrating). On top of that, the loading of each mission is quite slow, and something as simple as returning to the hanger to switch ships for trying another approach requires waiting for the loading again despite your ship being the only thing that changed.

I also experienced frustration many times with the turret deployables that cause friction as well as those that grab hold of your ship. These can cause you to get "stuck" in the middle of a huge swarm of opponents, putting you at nearly hopeless odds with very little you can do, so I think the presence of these "weapons" does more to detract than enhance the game, though with enough experience you would probably learn whatever subtle tricks are needed to avoid them.

Overall, though, very high quality, very well thought out, lots of depth, and plenty of fun to play, certainly a gem to have found.

I haven't played multiplayer but I would imagine it would work very well with the design of this game.

Not even sure where to start with this, there is so much good content and any feature you might want seems to be here so far. The campaign is huge I'm barely out of the tutorial 'galaxy' the starter story isn't very original... it's basically darksun 2 but the levels all present something new as you progress rather than having a pre set do A now, do B now mentality.

It's got the perfect achievement tracker which let's you jump straight back into the level right from the achievement page to get any you're missing. (useful since the important bonus objectives generally grant you 10,000 spends)
A full difficulty scaler, so far this just seems a direct damage/reward ratio applied to everything but I'm just starting out.
Research, ships, preset ships, fully customisable ships... everything.

Oh and the most important bit, Multiplayer and Co-Op modes. It's even got a fully functioning Moba/Armada Online mode.

I'm a bit dissapointed I got bored of buying copies of it for a $ now, everyone should have it.

Several aspects of this game alone are enough to make this game great. Nontheless, they all come together to make a fantastic experience
I'll start with combat. The game starts you out with some crappy ships and crappy weapons. This fits in line with the plot. As you get more vessels and new armaments, you start to pick favorites, and by the time you get to design your first fully customized craft, you already have a good idea of a few combinations that may become standbys for the battles to come. Fighting involves destroying, distracting, subverting, evading, tricking, stunning, outrunning and overpowering the enemies. I am very well convinced that someone could spend a year on this game and barely scratch the surface of all the amazing combinations that have yet to be discovered.
The plot? Enthralling. Through gut renching losses and righteous victories, this game engrains you. Between the universe threatening drama, cheeky humor pervades the dialogue, and the characters, even minor ones, can be quite lovable. What also helps to make this story concrete is the depth of the lore. That, along with the fact that some of the Sci-Fi technology makes sense helps to make this a real feeling world.
The music isn't flashy, but it is a great case study of how one can do great things with only a few tools. I heard there guys aren't even musicians. The graphics use shiny light and pretty colors to draw you in, with atmospheric backgrounds the fit right in place.
Some of the cons involve the layout. It can be difficult to navigate the hangar and switch ships. Finding your favorite presets can be irksome, and there doesn't seem to be a way to test ship combinations without going into a story mission. Most of the game is fighting, with some racing and stealth in there too. This is, however, broken up by the jovial dialogue and a few puzzles.
In short, this game had a lot of careful quality and love put into it. It is easily worth more that $10.

What a hidden gem this game is.

The game is a top-down space shooter with newton physics, meaning if you accelerate in one direction you will not stop until you turn around and apply thrust... or hit something, this makes the combat fun and fluid.

There are a ton of ship hulls available with about 300 or so abilities and weapons available so your creativity can run riot, a good amount of them are unlocked via the campaign but you can also research them using the in-game currency to unlock them earlier should you wish.

The campaign is immensely long and I loved it every bit of it, even if you try speed through the game it'll still take you about 15 hours, and that’s not even including the time for completing bonus objectives, mini-games or arcade events available.

Edit: The soundtrack is also freaking awesome.


10/10, would have bought at full price the day it was released if I'd have known about it then.
