Description: 4089 takes many of the things you loved from 3079 & 3089, like character customization via stat points, grappling hooks, special powers, building options, futuristic settings, random enemies, weapons, and environments. Then, it presents itself in a much more focused game that gets you into the action easier and faster. 4089 takes more influence from the roguelike genre & has more emphasis on stealthy elements than ever before.

You’ll be able to battle & sneak through a procedurally designed ship. Hack cameras & locked doors. Build walls for cover. Break down secret walls to discover new paths. Choose whether you are playing for the full adventure or just a quick challenge. Edit or create your own rooms, enemies, weapons, textures, models & sounds, then share them with the world!

Review: Based around the games 3079 & 3089 you have to try and stop an alien invasion from taking over your planet. You get to use a grappling hook and various other weapons to stop this nasty alien force. It does feature some retro style of graphics, but the game can be quite fast-paced (despite the slow movement) in places so looking around is the last thing you will be doing.

While the learning curve is a little steep, once you get used to it you will soon be killing alien robots left, right and centre. While it doesn’t have the best VR support they are proactive and do work on them regularly. The good news is that it has a low price so it’s worth buying now and waiting for them to fix the bugs rather than the other way around. I don’t think it’s quite as good as either 3079 or 3089, but if you like those, you will love this one.
