Space Run for Windows and OS X

Focus Home Interactive now offers a Mac OS X edition of Space Run, reminding us we may not have mentioned the Windows release of the indie space strategy game a couple of weeks ago. You can purchase the game through the PASSTECHgames website, where they offer a discovery trailer. Here's a bit on the game:

A Space Runner doesn't just deliver goods from one end of the galaxy to the other - you'll need a large dose of ingenuity, intuition and ability to react if you want to complete the various missions you are offered. But although your main task is to make intergalactic deliveries as fast as possible while keeping your merchandise (and your vessel) intact, countless external elements will come to hamper your progress: asteroid belts, fleets of pursuing pirates and particularly nasty interstellar corsairs. the threats are everywhere!

Load your cargo, charge up your laser cannons, shields and reactors and set out on the missions that have been assigned to you. The construction phase of your vessel will form the core of the gameplay: find the right balance of speed, defense and firepower! The more successful you are, the higher your reputation will soar, and this will be reflected in your bank account. This will enable you to unlock new modules for your ship and additional upgrades to increase your tactical options, either to embark on new and more dangerous missions or to replay a mission to improve your score!

I really enjoyed this game. Put about 20 hours into it to complete it. It's not as deep as, say, Defense Grid, and it doesn't have a lot of replay value once you're done, but 20 fun hours for $12 or whatever it was... I'm happy. If you like tower defense you'll like this game.

Yeah, I've been interested in this since the first time I saw it. That being said, with the summer sails just finishing up, I have so much to play that I can't really justify getting it right now.

Huh - saw it on steam and initially ignored it, based on the artwork. Yet the video looks fun. Like a moving tower defense?

Might check it out, it it's really cheap...
