Affordable Space Adventures is an indie title with a $20 price tag, and that may make some would-be purchasers leery of the investment. I can say with full confidence that the price tag is not only justified, but might even be too low.
A low-budget, yet remarkably well-conceived adventure puzzler. Excellent and unique co-op feature making full use of the gamepad, puzzles that get quite challenging later in the game, but are rewarding and utilize skills and abilities that are taught to you through the puzzle itself. No tutorials here and none necessary. Interesting and witty plotline with hilarious writing, and a unique and consistent mood throughout.
You (and up to two more friends) co-pilot a "consumer" space vehicle rented for 72 hours to explore Spectaculon, a newly discovered, gorgeous planet 27 light years from Earth. It is only 5% charted, so you are to wander the diverse landscape and maybe you'll get to name some new plants or animals.
Spectaculon, however, is not the idyllic wonderland the upbeat infomercial that serves at the game's intro makes it seem. By the end of your harrowing journey you will realize how attached you've grown to your co-pilots and your janky, but incredibly resilient budget spacecraft. Levels that range from the fascinating, to dramatic, to absurd, to frustrating will have you high-fiving your pilot as you complete a level with a bizarre and creative stunt. As the game progresses and you master more of the ships surprisingly large breadth of capabilities, you will find multiple solutions to this games ingenious and devious problems. By the glorious finale, you will be a regular Captain Kirk. A must play.
I actually feel like a astronaut when I play this game. Do you want to feel like an astronaut? I hope so. This game has an awesome atmosphere and is most definitely worth your money, also its a fantastic multiplayer game. You have to talk to each other pretty much the whole time when you are playing with friends instead of mindlessly staring at a tv screen and occasionally drooling. Make sure you play it with 2 people rather than three. I am very excited about finishing this game. This is definitely one of those strange games that is intense but yet user friendly. Definitely invite some friends over and dive into this game.
Si bien una calificación arriba de ochenta habla de un gran juego, en el caso presente tal relación queda muy corta, dada la originalidad del juego (jamás había jugado un juego cooperativo con tal diversión), las hermosas gráficas 2d, el excelente uso del sonido y la explotación al límite del gamepad no podría decir sino que es un juego que roza con la perfección tanto estética como lúdica. Si tienes wiiu (creo que también está para 3ds) deberás comprarlo, no es el juego nindy más barato pero junto a Shovel Knight son los mejores indies de los últimos tres años.
+ Very interesting mechanics that shine as an awesome couch co-op experience
+ Beautiful world to explore that interacts well with the gameplay
? One of the co-op roles feels kind of lame and doesn't offer as much to do
- Has an incredibly steep difficulty curve towards the end of the game, with challenges that are very oblique and hard to figure out
SummaryAffordable Space Adventures is a 2.5D side scrolling spaceship simulator. You are using the GamePad as a Heads Down Display - spaceship cockpit, and you have to configure all the systems in order to fly around undetected on an alien planet.
