Space Run

Space Run is a « real-time spaceship construction strategy game». Space Run takes the well-known Tower Defense-style gameplay and twists it, challenging you to manage and protect a spaceship and its cargo against the hazards of deep space!
Space can be a dangerous place. You’re one of the most daring «Space Transporters», people who carry the dangerous task of transporting valuable shipments from one place to another across hazardous space. This supposedly simple task gets tricky once you add dense asteroid fields that regularly cross the space lanes, the armed-to-the-teeth pirate starfighters and spaceships all too willing to shred your ship for your cargo, as well as the other Space Transporters you are competing against!
Take on increasingly difficult missions as your reputation grows: bringing more expensive cargo to their destination will earn you credits to unlock new ship modules and upgrades that will help you survive the lethal threats of space: laser turrets, missile launchers, protection shields, thrusters, power generators... you name it! You’ll have to quickly adapt to every new situations if you wish to survive, building modules on your ship as you fly across space. The faster you fly and reach your destination, the better your reputation, allowing you to unlock more difficult delivery missions!
Space Run boasts high replay value: replay earlier missions with the new modules you unlocked in order to complete them faster and score higher... and show your friends you’re the fastest, most daring Space Transporter ever!

Main Features:

• Accessible and extremely dynamic gameplay that puts a new twist on the well-known Tower Defense genre
• Build your spaceship on the fly to adapt to every situation, protecting your valuable cargo and beating your competitor in deadly delivery races
• Earn credits to Unlock & Upgrade new ship modules, allowing you to better defend yourself, attack other cargo, and complete your missions faster to gain higher reputation

  • This is an accessible game but one that is very challenging, yet it's always engaging.

  • An intelligent, fun and very deep sci-fi take on the tower defense genre.

  • An enjoyable twist on the tower defense genre. The downside of tower defense games is that you can often find yourself a disengaged viewer, watching your towers do their work and hoping for the best. That's not the case with Space Run. It has the strategy elements of a tower defense game, but it keeps you constantly active in defending and adapting your ship. And to me, that's a winning combination.

  • Space Run shines from the depths of space, from the challenging gameplay to the deep strategy mechanics. I looked forward to every cutscene with glee, whether it featured Buck Mann talking terms with an employer, or had me trading fightin' words with pirates.

  • An interestingly conceived tower defense game that will please fans of the genre who are tired of its stupor. It is a satisfying and entertaining action game. The ideal choice for those who are depressed that the new school year is beginning, and that they have nothing to play during their classes.

  • A thoroughly engrossing tower defence game with a couple of unique twists of its own.

  • Game World Navigator Magazine

    We've got a game that is easy to learn, but hard to master. It offers exciting entertainment for a couple of evenings, but developers did not manage to fully unfold its features. A greater variety of opponents and a wider range of equipment would be appreciated. [September 2014, p. 81]

  • A bold, fun incarnation of a very unusual concept.

  • An interesting "reverse tower defense", with an original and humorous setting. Too bad for the oppressive grinding.

  • Games Master UK

    The voice acting is hit or miss, though. Mainly miss. [Oct 2014, p.81]

  • Space Run is a confident and well executed first outing from France’s Passtech Games, offering a quality experience occasionally comparable with the best in the genre.

  • Space Run is a solid entry in a genre that is full of unimaginative titles, and from the get go Space Run supplies an easy to understand, but challenging to beat campaign that will keep people’s minds and fingers active from beginning to end.

  • CD-Action

    An interesting tower defense in space, but also a one-trick pony. [Sept 2014, p.67]

  • Space Run is an original Tower Defense game, with simple but interesting gameplay mechanics.

  • Space Run is a fairly fun twist on tower defense, but it lacks much of the genre’s interesting experimentation.

  • LEVEL (Czech Republic)

    A pleasant mix of an action and tower defense game that sadly runs out of its charm sooner than one would hope for. [Issue#245]

  • By paying such homage to the 80s classics which inspired it - even in an age where ‘retro’ interpretations are ala mode - Space Run feels a bit dated.
