Summary

Quirky and Unique - A Space Strategy/RPG Game That Plays in 10 Minutes

The Good

This game is pretty much unique. Unlike the old, sad Lucasarts attempts at a "coffee break game", this one is actually quite fun. Eventually you'll have seen all the possible encounters and tire of trying for a lucky setup that will let you beat your old high score, but until then it's fun and creative, and each play really only does take 5-10 minutes.

The Bad

Eventually it starts feeling repetitive, and loses interest. (And needless to say, it's not even in competition with more ordinary games intended for many hours per play.)

The Bottom Line

Unique and worth trying out. If you enjoy Give Me the Brain, or similar games from Digital Eel's boardgame partner Cheapass Games, you are likely to find this a fun and cheap diversion.
