Description: In the 21st century, humankind launched a plan to explore the farthest reaches of outer space, after which, science and technology boomed rapidly. This plan made age-old dreams of deep space travel finally come true, however, we were not prepared for what lurked in the darkest corners of the universe… As many had feared, the first contact with alien races ushered in an era of unimaginable calamity. The earth was targeted by advanced invaders, and after a merciless interstellar war, our homeland was left in ruins. The surviving humans organized a star fleet, wandering through the endless universe in the search for a new home. Thus began a long and gruelling journey, as mankind struggled for survival while fighting off the remaining alien forces.

Review: Before you read this review, do watch the video trailer below. Watched it? OK, good, you are probably thinking this looks like a pretty epic space shooter that you will enjoy immensely! Well…I have bad news for you because that is not the game you are getting here. You are getting a static position rail shooter in which you need to shoot ships surrounded by red squares as fast as you can, then work out what the Chinese text is telling you to do! Talk about false advertising! Disappointment put to one side, there really isn’t a lot here you won’t see in almost all other rail shooters. Sure, it might look nice at times, but the action is as slow as it gets and it all just gets a tad boring after the first few rounds. Only a fool would pay £4.79 for this, but grab it for a quid or less and you might enjoy it more than I did.
