Deep Space Rush – Xbox One Review
Our Xbox One Review of Deep Space Rush
I always do love a game that’s simple, easy and sometimes although basic, is quite good fun. Over the past few days, I’ve had the chance to get to play through a new title that comes from the publishing arm of Ratalaika Games, who are starting to become known for their cheap indie titles, that offer short experiences and normally quite an easy Gamerscore hunt for those like myself who can never say no to a flutter of Gamerscore heading our way. It comes in the form of Deep Space Rush, a shooter where you must get through endless zones, killing enemies and collecting coins that can be used in the shop to help aid you. Sound basic and simple? That’s because it is, and surprisingly is quite good fun.
Developed by BUG Studio and published by Ratalaika Games, it released a few weeks ago on console, and is a ID shooter. The concept of the game is simple, and basic, and it’s not a game that’s going to offer you anything in terms of a complex story. The idea of the game is simple – you have to take your character, who is a man exploring the ways of space, and travel through zones that have been infested with enemies and coins, both of which you’ll need to explore, kill and collect. The zones are endless, and if you don’t die, you can find yourself going for ages. But you won’t. You’ll find yourself getting through a few zones and especially early on, dying. If you die, that’s the end of the game – you’ll need to jump into a new one, although don’t fret, anything you collect in terms of coins you’ll be able to use in the shop for future play-throughs, helping you in maxing out certain things/items that you can buy in the store.
It’s not a game that’s going to take a lot to grasp the controls either, as Deep Space Rush offers a simple and easy experience. If you’ve played other shooters before then you’ll have no problems at all. It’s always quite nice, especially with an ID title, when you pick it up and there isn’t a ton of controls to learn.
If you’re after a game that is going to give you a quick 1000g, then you have indeed come to the right game to find your next treasures. Deep Space Rush will give you the full 1000g in under an hour, perhaps even half hour, depending how quickly you play through and kill enemies and explore different zones. All the achievements are easily do-able, and they will not take long nor give you much of a challenge. Fair play to Ratalaika Games as they always know how to publish games that are good Gamerscore hunting games, and this one offers no different.
It’s effectively a survival title where you’ll need to explore through different zones, collecting coins that you can use to help aid you in the store, and killing endless and a variety of enemies, whilst having a smile seeing those big Gamerscore notifications appear. It’s not a game that’s going to break the bank either, and I must say, aside from the Gamerscore, it’s actually quite a fun title to play. The concept is simple, and the concept is basic, but it’s a fun enjoyable concept, and not one that’s difficult to pick up either.
A good ID title, that BUG Studio have done quite a good job on.
