Tower Defense on rails....in spaaaaaaace (sorry couldn't resist)
Space Run is a fun little game albeit one that could be aided with a $5 price drop.
-Addictive tower defense gameplay, if you like the genre you will probably like this game.
-Different ship layouts as well as enemies keep you on your toes and force players to change strategy.
-Good visuals, the game doens't try to be a graphical powerhouse but lines are sharp, the colors are bright and the almost lego art direction has a happy and poppy feel to it which I enjoyed.
-Quick rounds make this the perfect game to play while just trying to kill 15 minutes.
-A fair amount of levels and a scoring system that adds replayability to each stage.
-Ship layouts pay homeage to classic starships of popular culture.
-Experienced no glitches or technical hiccups.
-It's a shade overpriced for what it is. I have a lot of games and I enjoyed this one but I have also paid less for more on other titles. I'm not saying it's a bad deal or the price is a major issue I just think it should probably be a few bucks cheaper.
-Dialogue and story are basically non existent. Just a few text boxes and a shallow plot. Some of the jokes are funny in a cheesy way but I found myself skipping through a lot of it.
-Not enough big ships. The game gives you a smaller playingh field than most TD games which makes you have to change your towers often especially at later levels. This is fine but it would have been cool to have a few more late game ships of a bigger size I think.
All in all I do recommend Space Run and had a very fun time w/it. Tower defense on rails was an interesting concept and one that worked well for the developers. I hope the game ended up profitting as little games like these often get sequels and I wouldn't mind hauling cargo through the galaxy again IF it were on a larger scale next time.
