Out There

I’ve had a lot of fun playing this on iPad, even though I still can’t seem to get past 16,000 points. The premise is simple: try to get to the objective (a far away point) with your ship, finding ways to refuel, repair, etc. along the way. There’s no combat in the game, and it’s all about exploring new planetary systems one after the other, until you die (either with your ship destroyed, running out of air, or what I tend to get the most, running out of fuel). There are fun story bits that add flavor to the game as you enter new systems, alien encounters, new ships to take over, and I quite like the illustrated aesthetics – it sorta feels like you’re playing through a comic book. Can’t recommend this enough, it’s surprisingly addictive.
