    Great fun... but, how long will the fun last?

    I like the game. I did not regret spending my $9 on it. It is innovative, new and whats best, does not follow the boring mediocrity recipes from the big studios. The game is easy to pick up. Tutorial is short but expl... Read Full Review

    Amazing Content

    This game has an amazingly simple premise: Get your ship from point A to B without getting caught or dieing. If you die or get caught that's it; no reloading your last save, no extra lives, nothing. You have to restart... Read Full Review

    Not worth the $8

    I have only played this game a few hours, but it is really dull and uninteresting. Game play is tired and repetitive. The same things happen again, and again, and again. Graphics are terrible. It looks like something... Read Full Review

    Allowing the Captain in all of us to come through!

    I enjoy this game and was waiting with anticipation for its release purchasing it off of Humbles own site. I like the designers background story of how they were scrappy developers seeking the public to help them make a... Read Full Review

    Get it. Get it now and choose your own adventure...in space on a ship. Awesome.

    This game is a superb example of a hand-crafted masterpiece. Those that say it's too difficult may not be taking into account that the multiple permadeaths are an integral part of the game. You learn and come back with a... Read Full Review

    It's fun, addicting, but with its flaws

    Indie games are in! This is one of those simple yet complex games that will hook you to the screen and make you forget about time. It is fun and definitely worth $10. Galaxies are somewhat randomly generated with ra... Read Full Review

    Great strategy game. Makes you feel like you're in the movie, 'Star Trek 2 Wrath of Khan.'

    Great Indie game that has you taking command of a star ship and it crew and guiding it through several maps. You start with only one ship option but, can unlock several more as you play though the game. Game looks simp... Read Full Review

    Totally old school "Rogue Like" that is just fun as heck! Wait where did 6 hours just go?!
