Description: Captain 13 – Beyond the Hero is an endless arcade shooter set in multiple galaxies of the universe. You are Captain 13, the sole survivor of a voyager fleet sent with the mission of clearing asteroid clusters. Your mission is one you may not return from, but it is a matter of life or death for the explorers travelling to these galaxies to colonize and expand humanity’s borders throughout the universe. You and your ship cruise through the galaxy where you have to destroy as many meteors as you can target. The larger your score, the safer the galaxies! As you shoot your way through vast and beautiful space, you’re not just there to enjoy the view. With it’s unique gameplay style, your objective is to spot the weak spots on meteors and act fast to destroy them before they get to you. That’s not all – you must collect the bare necessities th at you’re rewarded with for each meteor destroyed. To ensure a prolonged experience you must collect fuel and service your ship if it is damaged along the way. As the sole survivor and carrier of your mission, you must push through the escalating meteor cluster and beat your own and other global player high-scores.

Review: Captain 13 – Beyond the Hero is a nod to old-school arcade games like Asteroid and its many other incarnations. While it looks pretty good and sounds OK, I felt the controls were simply not working as I wanted and it took me far too long to get the hang of them (but I did in in end and started to get into the game). This game is also bug-filled and the strangest of things happen during the game and the most annoying is when the control simply stops working. With a few updates, this might well be a great game to turn to for a bit of retro shooter action. But given the low price, I do feel this is still worth a look now.
