Description: Do you like blowing things up? So do I, that’s the reason my dog Otis and I made this game. Star Saga One is a fast-paced space style shoot-em-up that takes place at an orbital mine station in the middle of nowhere. It features 3 different weapon types and a personal shield when things get really hairy. This game has you pitted against hordes of deep space drones, each wave more challenging than the last.
Your weapons include your standard Blaster Pistol, the Wolf-PPK, with included rapid-fire mode. The Ram-PPK Polarizer, which temporarily inverts your enemies target. The last is the Hart-PPK EMP grenade when you’re surrounded and you need to take out more than you have time to. Your digital defence is a personal crystalline shield made from liquid diamond, but even it won’t protect you if a strategy isn’t on your side.
Review: Star Saga One – Rise of the Dominators is yet another basic looking first-person shooter game. It is the usual foray here, wave after wave of evil drones will try and kill you and you need to kill them before that happens. I can’t even say the guns feel good because they really don’t (although the friendly fire gun did make me smile). Then there is the evil egg. Yes, for some unknown reason there is a Yoshi egg in the middle of your console thing and if you shot it the game crashes! This game is far too buggy and unfinished to get my recommendation and while I am aware that it only costs £0.79 I still don’t feel that it is worth a download.
