2014’s Space Run was a pleasant surprise when it released two years ago, almost to the day. Space Run Galaxy is tower defense, done differently. You are on a linear track and essentially need to hold out, protecting the cargo and your own ship by the time you reach the end, but do so fast and efficiently. You’ll be building defenses and offenses in real-time as you make your way from point A to point B. It’s a game that the core gameplay works well, but some of the additions introduced in Space Run Galaxy doesn’t have me sticking around as much as I’d like.
Focus Home Interactive and Passtech Games are joining forces again to release Space Run Galaxy on PC this year. Space Run Galaxy is the sequel to 2014’s Space Run, the game from one-man studio Passtech, which seduced hundreds of thousands of players with its dynamic and original gameplay. By twisting the tower-defense game style, Space Run offered an addictive real-time spaceship construction strategy experience. Space Run Galaxy expands and refines the original’s unique gameplay, introduces a persistent online universe and takes-off again with plenty of new features!
Space is vast and endless, full of opportunity. What better way to use the openness than to run cargo across it? Space Run is a tower defense game that bears no real resemblance to anything in the genre. You are on the move, going from left-to-right while being attacked from various enemies as you make your deliveries. It gives the game a natural feel of protecting your cargo while trying to get it to the next space station in tact.
