We’re taking you to space today with our top 5 space games! As always, they’re free to try so have a go and tell us what you think!
Tom, one of our QA testers, says:
“Create a race or choose from the many predesigned empires in this masterpiece from true champions of the genre Paradox. Will you work with other species or bend them to your will? Will you create a lasting peace amongst the stars or will you watch the galaxy burn? Exploring and managing the final frontier has never been so engaging. The steep learning curve of Stellaris may be intimidating at first, but through a well designed tutorial system any player can become the master of their own destiny in the stars.”
Nat, our marketing manager, says:
“Steredenn is a fun and fast scrolling space shooter that can be challenging to play. You will die. Often. It’s also addictive. You’ll find yourself playing over and over again. The graphics are pretty retro which makes me love this game a little bit more, and means it also works great on potato PCs”
Jason, one of our QA testers, says:
“Sublevel Zero is a spaceship first person combat based roguelike that will have your head weaving and tilting to dodge the rapid fire of bullets coming from the multiple enemies. The no-lives, no-saves aspect of the game leaves you to wanting to fight to the last bullet to stay alive and gain the rewards of new weapons, ships and craftables. Even the games simple visuals are vibrant and colourful which I think makes this game a worthwhile try.”
Matt, one of our QA testers, says:
“Blackhole is a puzzling platformer which will see you shifting gravity in order to collect parts to repair your ship and escape from the black hole you are trapped in. Don’t let its simple polished visuals fool you into thinking this will be an easy task, with the shifts in gravity altering where you can go, as well as putting the collectibles out of reach, it’s up to you to solve the right path to save your crew and yourself!”
Playing a jigsaw game may not sound like one’s idea of a fun video game, but once you get started its easy to lose track of time (and space… I’ll see myself out) Pixel Puzzles 2 Space, is the sequel from Pixel Puzzles Japan, this time adding an extra element of difficulty. Its predecessor requires the player to just place the moving pieces outside of the board into the correct spaces on the puzzle board, though in space, you will be tasked with rotating the pieces on the board to make sure they fit. Take a moment to relax and enjoy a stress free game, you’d be surprised at easy it is to get sucked in the vacuum of a space themed jigsaw!
