Cargo Commander lies somewhere in the spectrum of incredible frustration, entertaining platforming, and engrossing storytelling. The game is really good at conveying the loneliness of space, and user-written postcards scattered throughout the containers is a very nice touch. On average, the game is a lot of fun. Until, you drop into a container only to find a million baddies already residing there. Or pick up cargo and get surrounded by spawned baddies. Or accidently punch an explosive barrel and vaporize the container. You get the point. Prepare for some frustratingly quick and numerous deaths.
A nice little game for short bursts.Mates1500 | Sept. 22, 2013 | See all Mates1500's reviews »
I wouldn't recommend buying the game for the full price, I simply think it's not worth it. It's, however a little game you can play in small bursts of time, explore a bit of space, find some treasure, beat someone else's score, upgrade your stuff. Nothing with very deep mechanics, but it's very fun to play nonetheless.

Cargo commander is a lot of fun. I love turning on silent space and then just floating off. However, I would watch this just in case it goes on sale because I think the price is quite high. If you don't mind the price then definitely give it a go.
Scoring Commander ?ccccp | May 25, 2013 | See all ccccp's reviews »
Cargo Commander is an original game of platforms and provides a lot of thrills. Changes of gravity, giving the feeling of being inside a washing machine, and frantic races to try to escape the vortex that devours everything around you provide an exhilarating experience. Too bad that despite its random variable, the concept fairly quickly shows its limits, by the lack of renewal, so you should rely on scoring to make the pleasure last longer. This is a typical example of the game that will appeal to restart from time to time to check where your friends got up to and try to rob them the high score.

A little rough around the edges with some graphical issues that will hopefully be patched, but otherwise a great indie game that's full of quirky flavor. The easiest way to describe Cargo Commander is probably 'challenging platformer + graphical nethack in space'. You're looting abandoned cargo containers in randomly generated sectors. Each container is essentially a platforming level in itself, with the added challenge of shifting gravity and the cold hard vacuum of space outside the flimsy container walls. Watch out for the former, mutated Cargo Commanders that also frequently occupy the containers. Definitely a good buy.
