Über das Spiel

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.


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 They've been replaced by Nero, your peanut-butter-craving neuro-Hud, who'll guide you through the universal super-highways known as The Rings.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.

"At its best, it takes the very idea of a twin-stick shooter, shakes it by the collar and shrieks, 'Space is enormous and deserves more than lasers and lightshows – let us strive for the beauty and variety that the stars deserve.'"
- Rock, Paper, Shotgun

"Bites off way more than it can chew, and it’s endlessly endearing for it."

Ring Runner Flight of the Sages hat vieles von S.P.A.Z. und FTL oder halt eben umgekehrt.
Man kann sich einen auf Rambo ins Gefecht stürzen und loslegen oder eben (wie ich) auch die Story genießen.
Die Kampagne spielt sich jetzt auf den Schwierigkeitsgrad "Runner" bei mir, was entweder Normal oder Leicht darstellen soll.
Die Geschichte hat Ihre melanchonischen, lustigen und Abenteuerischen Seiten: u.a. Opftert sich ein Freund in einer Situation wo er dich töten soll, aber er sich wiederum selbst opfert, dir aber ein nettes Raumschiff vermacht oder man eben versucht in einer von Piraten überwucherten Gegend Tastaturen zu verkaufen. ;)

Als Spieler mit eher wenigern Englischkentnissen, muss ich sagen das ich hier alles bis auf ein paar Ausnahmen verstanden habe (DAS hat was zu heißen!).Die Geschichte kommt langsam nach und nach und NICHT a lá *BUMM* Hier hast du deinen Overload an Informationen und mach dein Ding...

Da ich nun süchtig nach diesem Spiel bin und die Kampagne wirklich verzehre muss ich sagen das ich echt überrascht bin das Dieses Spiel nur 8,99€ kosten soll.

+ Story
+ Eine Menge Raumschiffe die man wirklich individuell zusammenstellen kann (Vom Antrieb bis zur Waffe u.v.m.)
+ Wiederspielwert durch Haufenweise Errungenschaften (175)
+ Gameplay
+ Preis

- Manchmal wirken Missionen entweder zu lang oder zu kurz
- Bossgegner sind manchmal übertrieben stark, selbst auf niedrigen Schwierigkeitsgraden

Not my game. And thats a pity, cause I LOVE 2d space action!
I know its my own fault cause there is a demo here on steam which I did not try - a big mistake!
The presentation is very basic. The graphics remind me of browser flash games.

For me this game is a very poor copy of SPAZ (Space Pirates and Zombies).
I liked SPAZ from the very first minute and played it over 200h, but Ring Runner could not hold my interest for 2h.
If you want arcade space action with better graphics and controls get SPAZ instead !
(and if you already got SPAZ avoid this game, you will be disapointed in comparison)

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.

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.

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.
