Про цю гру

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 They've been replaced by Nero, your peanut-butter-craving neuro-Hud, who'll guide you through the universal super-highways known as The Rings.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

Press Quotes

"Clearly had a little TLC put into it. The writing is solid by video game standards, the graphics are solid by indie game standards and the game’s fun by any standard."

- Indiestatik

"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."
- GiantBomb

I don't normally play top-down shooters, but this game is something really special. The Newtonian physics are not just a gimmick to make it stand out - they are a core element of the game and numerous mechanics are built around them. The build customization is like nothing I've ever seen before, with an extreme range and variety of viable builds - from a fast, highly lethal ship wielding only a massive photon bat, to a flying fortress deploying a field of turrets. Different configurations for the same hull can have radically different gameplay, and there are over 20 "sidegrade" hulls to choose as a base!

The story is not tacked on at all - it is front and center, and the writing is highly enjoyable. There is a lot of great humor and very "natural" dialogue from characters who have no voice acting or portraits, yet are far more memorable than the cast of most games nowadays. The game's universe manages to combine a serious main plot with side adventures involving things like robbing a bank with a bunch of trash trawler rednecks or shooting pirates until they agree to buy Dvorak keyboards.

The game's mechanics, immense customization and somewhat slow and lengthy (though skippable) tutorial galaxy make it hard to learn and harder to master. Once you do get into it, it's a unique experience guaranteeing crazy amounts of fun. You can feel that the developers put their heart and soul into their game, and diving into such a lovingly crafted experience made me very happy.

There aren't very many games I play till I get 100% completion.

I have only played one other game to 100% completion twice (super mario 64) and I plan on doing another 100% completion of this game.

I also don't normally write reviews.

I'm doing all the above because I think this game is fantastic and more people should play it.

This game is unique and while its certainly not for everyone it has a literally overwhelming amount of content in it.

Ring Runner is a well executed top down shooter. The game feels great to play for the most part, though when using a mouse and keyboard it's sometimes difficult to accurately execute moves that require you to flick your mouse.

The game's single player campaign doesn't take itself all that seriously, but knows how to handle that kind of humor. In addition there's way more lore than you would expect in this game. Details about the universe are attatched to the story mode, as well as every ship part.

Speaking of ship parts, there's a ton of them. This is a good game, but ship customization is what pushes this game into being great. There's a research system and a ton of ship parts, none of which are straight upgrades without a drawback. This means that you'll spend a ton of time just sitting in the hangar making new ships and testing them out.

The multiplayer seems okay. Me and my friends didn't suffer any lag or latency issues and it all ran smoothly. The multiplayer consists of a few co-op modes like arena and zombies. There's also some PvP modes but as of this moment I have no experience with them.

Pick this game up, especially if it goes on sale. If you both enjoy tinkering with things and playing top down shooters then you'll love this one.

8.3/10 - Top down Space Shooter on Steroids!

This game really impressed me, and I really didn't expect it to. It's a typical top down shooter as far as graphics but everything else is a cut above the rest. The campaign is over 30 hours long which I really look forward to, tons of achievements and extra features.

There is also a hangar; which allows you to customize your ship and several multiplayer modes. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to link up with other players yet. For some reason this game has been overlooked even though it's one of the better space shooters.

This is worth the $10, if you like Space Shooter games. The campaign is long!
