The most ambitious space shooter RPG of the early 21st century, Ring Runner blends the palm-perspiring action of space combat with the narrative passion of a role-playing game.
Pack a towel and embark on an epic journey across the universal super highways known as the Rings; someone out there must know who or what you are. The voice of Nero, your snarky neuro-HUD, provides guidance and compulsory companionship, but no answers. Dive into The Subrostrum, a world smaller than atoms where Will overpowers the natural forces, and resurface as a Sage capable of rewriting physical laws.

Several aspects of this game alone are enough to make this game great. Non-the-less, they all come together to make a fantastic experience I'll start with combat. The game starts you out with some crappy ships and crappy weapons. This fits in line with the plot. As you get more vessels and new armaments, you start to pick favorites, and by the time you get to design your first fully customized craft, you already have a good idea of a few combinations that may become standbys for the battles to come. Fighting involves destroying, distracting, subverting, evading, tricking, stunning, outrunning and overpowering the enemies. I am very well convinced that someone could spend a year on this game and barely scratch the surface of all the amazing combinations that have yet to be discovered. The plot? Enthralling. Through gut renching losses and righteous victories, this game engrains you. Between the universe threatening drama, cheeky humor pervades the dialogue, and the characters, even minor ones, can be quite lovable. What also helps to make this story concrete is the depth of the lore. That, along with the fact that some of the Sci-Fi technology makes sense helps to make this a real feeling world. The music isn't flashy, but it is a great case study of how one can do great things with only a few tools. I heard there guys aren't even musicians. The graphics use shiny light and pretty colors to draw you in, with atmospheric backgrounds the fit right in place. Some of the cons involve the layout. It can be difficult to navigate the hangar and switch ships. Finding your favorite presets can be irksome, and there doesn't seem to be a way to test ship combinations without going into a story mission. Most of the game is fighting, with some racing and stealth in there too. This is, however, broken up by the jovial dialogue and a few puzzles. In short, this game had a lot of careful quality and love put into it. It is easily worth more that $10.
Ring Runner is a unique game with some interesting mechanics i must say. The Classic arcade inspired graphics are great to play on and the gameplay is fast REALLY fast paced. I like how CO-OP works. You act as a copilot with your friend to pilot a ship. Customization is great on this game because of the vast number of enemies you have to fight so customize well and fight giant hordes of enemy or a single target fighting machine. The game modes are insane. This a space game but they have a ZOMBIE mode. which makes it so much crazy. Updates are coming in slowly but there is rumor that a MOBA mode will be coming out soon. 10 bucks for this game is worth it.
