A fun take on Tower Defense, but no Privateer

Space Run's greatest strength is also it's biggest weakness. The core of the game is you have a ship with a very limited deckplan, and have to "fit" in your weapons and defenses, Tetris style, with more powerful equipment have larger, more awkward shapes. This starts as a neat twist on the usual Tower Defense formula, but soon becomes an exercise in frustration as you find the upgrades you've been grinding for are next to useless as you can't fit them in anywhere.

The presentation, UI and voice acting are all first-rate, and really evoke a "trucker" vibe. Fun to play for a bit, but no real depth. Value to money? Probably worth about $5 or so.

Space Run: A Neat Game

Space Run is basically a moving tower-defense game. Your spaceship has to transport various materials and you have to defend against various obstacles. The gameplay is suprisingly fun. The frantic micro-management against incoming waves of enemies is really fun. Sound design is pretty good as well as the soundtrack. Graphical fidelity is pretty good considering the budget of this game. Overall this game is pretty good. I would recommend this to fans of tower-defense games. I'm not a fan of those games and this game just shows how well they impressed me.
