  1. Streamlined and pretty, this is an example of a simple idea being the best idea. [Jan 2010, p.84]
  2. A very good Thrust-clone with a nice level editor. Too bad there's no reactor carrying and internet multiplayer modes. [Jan 2010]

    I tried hard to find a reason to NOT give this game a score of 10. I own about 20 downloaded games on my PS3 and this game is in my top 2 or 3 (my other favourite is Comet Crash). Pros: - $10 - Fantastic retro visuals and music. As another reviewer put it, it's a neon ice-cream that makes you want to lick the screen. - Fantastic controls. - You can land your spacecraft (to rescue crashed crews) and it's as challenging as the popular 'Moon Lander' type of games. My favourite part. - Cool water effects (yes, the spacecraft can swim.). - It doesn't deserve a 10/10 score if you're not into simple retro and must have the latest eye-candy like Madden, Barbie Adventures, or Final Fantasy. Cons: - It doesn't have a lot of depth.. the story is very light. However I'm a 20-minute-a-day gamer so this game suits me well. Full Review »

    Very good game, there are some small gripes but nothing that makes me regret purchasing it. I wish just a bit more time was taken to round out community interaction, but hey this is just what the Dr. ordered until pj Shooter!! Full Review »

    reminds me of the old classic fount on the Atari ST. OIDS. the game uses the same graphics found in games like Geometry wars but give extra gameplay.
