Description: Long ago two brave pioneers set out into the expanse to find out why the stars were going out in the universe, apart from a single cryptic message that led to the discovery of the Alpha Device, they were never heard of again.
Years later what happened to them was finally discovered. After finding their way into a Star Killer, Commander Andy Carolan watched as his friend and colleague Commander Alan Purdy was killed trying to disable it. Witnessing this he dug in deeper and eventually found a way to destroy it.
Review: Caretaker Retribution is a basic-looking 6 DOF shooter in which you need to shot things all the while flying around with a jetpack or something on. I did enjoy the flying around as it felt a lot like the classic game Descent. But sadly the shooting and action as a whole do leave a lot to be desired. The game just feels so unpolished, so unfinished that it is impossible for me to recommend it to you, especially at the full price of £7.19. If you can get this for just a few quid you might well enjoy it a lot more than I did. It has five big maps to explore and a host of options, but just not enough to make it worth full price.
