We reviewed Space Run Galaxy

E3 being over, we can get back to new releases, like Space Galaxy Run, sequel to the game Space Run released in 2014 on PC. Developed by Passtech Games and published by Focus Home Interactive, this small independent title offers you to become a space road driver in a very hostile world. It features a dynamic tower defence style gameplay with RPG elements. Check out our videos inside.

Verdict


Galaxy Space Run is a pleasant evolved tower defense time, simple to learn but not that easy to master. Its progression curve and its life span are quite good, but the gameplay will most certainly seem repetitive to some. In the end, we especially regret the absence of a pause or a sort of bullet time effect during some of the most thrilling sequences, as it would have allowed the player to take a break and think a little: where to install the next weapon, what part of the ship to repair, and what area requires the use of a special skill. In the end, even though this sequel may not be that different from the original, it's still a solid and fun title that we can recommend if you like the genre.


On the upside


+ Accessible
+ Addictive gameplay
+ Good longevity
+ Ships customization
+ The few online features


On the downside


- Being forced to transport the materials everywhere to buy equipment
- No pause/slow-motion during missions

Boss Run
Double Run
Normal Run 1
Normal Run 2

    KORNdog @Moonwalker: i'd like them to make the story make some sense and be complete before adding any of this side stuff. It was such a disjointed mess (15 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @Moonwalker: Because the side quests in this one...hoo boy....the worst kind of fetch bullshit there is. (1 Hour ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: Can't argue with that, it really was quite a disappontment in the end. If they would annouce that they are actually adding fun and meaningful side quests....that be great and sorely needed. (1 Hour ago)

    KORNdog @alimokrane: just get the samsung we keep recommending. it's honestly the best bang for buck you can get. you can get better sets, but you will pay the price. and it seem your budget isnt very high. (1 Hour ago)

    alimokrane @KORNdog: It's so confusing man.. I have been slaving for a week for a decent 4kt TV and I keep hitting all these little things and it's annoying lol. (2 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog that's all i really understand of it. seems HDR10 is what most TV's have though, so you're probably safe with that. (2 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog a dolby featured one can still do HDR10. but it doesnt work the other way around. also dolby's goes up to 4000nits (arguably future proof but no TV supports it yet) and HDR10 goes up to 1000 nits. (2 Hours ago)
