Lucky me gets to be the first to warn other gamers about yet another scam from ‘beans rolls’.
Moon Defense is a Unity Asset flip, what Valve calls a “fake game”. The “developer”, beans rolls, took the Moon Defense Game Kit - FREE Unity Store tutorial/demo/game asset pack from the real developers, Azureda Games, changed the name, and dumped the result onto Steam. They’re attempting to scam people into buying this, so they can get your money for someone else’s work.

STAR WARS™ Battlefront
A game that, if nothing else, will force you to look at Star Wars again. But in Battlefront, the form of the game is defeated by stupid content and dances on his grave. Graphically fantastic, technically flawless, with a perfect atmosphere, yes, but the ever-receding euphoria reveals a simple and quite poor shooter in the core without any story.
But you would hardly find a nicer, more authentic and more atmospheric trip into the world of Star Wars.
Glittering ice crystals on the walls of the crooked corridors in a cave on the icy planet Hoth, the nostalgically familiar panorama of Tatooine, the emerald green of the forest moon Endor - all look as you remember it, as you know it, and the heart-pounding bell when conflict breaks out, He finds it difficult to dig into chains of words and sentences. A Star Wars lover will be ecstatic.

Obviously we’re going to compare this to the originals back in the day. Graphically, this is amazing. The experience is quite good, and it’s very immersive. But there are flaws that hold it back. Overall, I kind of want to say negative, just because the game is dead, and there’s lots of cheaters, but it really is a fun game.
1. No classes. It really feels like you’re playing the same class all the time. While you can switch up gear, most things feel nearly the same. Guns only have slight differences in stats, but they all feel basically the same. It goes pew pew and releases a red laser, either automatically or semi-automatically. There’s no sense of being a rocket guy, a sniper, a shotgunner, an engineer, etc. You are just running around with one of the many guns that feel the same.
This is a great little game, simple but challenging at the same time! It doesn’t take itself too seriously - it had me laughing a few times.
This is definitely worth the price of a coffee if you like playing around with physics in space… and lasers.

Really awesome top down adventure shooter with some nice RPG elements!
D.E.E.P.: Battle of Jove
D.E.E.P. Battle Of Jove is an epic, fast, arcade-type campaign-based dogfighter that aims to take next-gen graphics & controls to achieve an experience that gamers have known since Star Fox: an easy to pick-up single player shooter where players chose from different ships they can upgrade as they take the role of one of the members of the rebellion in a fight against a power, deep AI.
If terminal velocity is your thing and barrel-rolling is your middle name, DEEP is what you’re looking for. Shake off enemies tailing you by doing a loop, maneuver thru giant space constructs near Jupiter or rocky corridors planet-side, use your homing missles to target the next enemy while speeding past your ally mothership.
Choose from different ships that range from the speedy scout, the tank-like Crusher or the balanced Raven. These ships can be upgraded and customized both in terms of functionality (weapons, engines) as well as comestics, to be obtained by completing missions or getting achievements.
Altho it might look like other games in DEEP there is no open-world, no rogue-like elements and no procedurally generated anything: All the levels are hand-made put together, following a retro-strand of space games while featuring all the next-gen shine and splendor you’d want why defying the skies.
D.E.E.P. will tell of a rebellion taking place in the Jovian System, where the player is part of a rebellion, resisting and battling against the ever-increasing all-knowing all-controlling mega AI called D.E.E.P.-Brain. Thru the 8-hour long campaign players will start out as veterans turned rebel,

Galaxy on Fire 2™ Full HD
Game Library randomizer once again returned me a familiar game title. Galaxy on fire 2 is a game I had on my iPhone 3. I probably wasted over 200-300 hours of my life playing this game when I was bored and I don’t even remember when I got this full HD version on steam.
After so many years I finally tried this game for real on steam. Graphics is aged but the full HD is still wonderfully eye candy. The Nebula, Planet, Asteroids and space station is well designed and looks on par with much bigger space game series like X, Wing Commander and space ranger.
For those that find the X series of games a little intimidating this is probably the game for you.As a big fan of the X series I was looking for a ‘Space Fix’ as the new X game ‘X Rebirth’ is very very broken at the moment but I should point out that Galaxy on Fire 2 HD is no where near as in depth as those games so if you are a fan of the X series this game may not fulfill your space sim need.If however you are looking for a more arcade type space sim Galaxy on Fire 2 maybe the game for you.
The basics are simple enough..there is a storyline(a short one) and there are various freelance missions you can take at the stations to earn money and buy upgrades for your ship or buy another ship..you can also mine asteroids (an annoying mini game but a cash cow non the less).
Need a puzzling game to play, but you don’t have time for a large scale, AAA title? This game is for you. The puzzles in this title will get your brain working, requiring you to sift through clues in emails and files as well as deciphering codes left by the inhabitants of this abandoned station. You’ll have to carefully manage your time and resources between crafting items to keep your life support stable, and fending off alien intruders.
Good, satisfying puzzles
Pixelated visuals and simple geometry are a nice change from the realism of today’s games
This is an interesting game. It started off a bit flat, seemed like straight out time/resource management. You split your time between telling drones to go auto-gather resources, rushing around to build stuff, and then occasionally going outside to shoot bugs before they get inside and cause problems.
But there’s a surprising amount of logs and emails and info you can look through, and the offscreen support character makes her own little comments on what you’re reading.
All while mutant alien bugs eat through the walls to come get you.
Yes! Any fan of asteroids will like this one. You can collect pill pick ups that increase your fire, sheilds, tone down rock behavior, and more I haven’t discovered yet. Nice flashy explosions and there is more to this game than meets the eye. Game is actually FUN to play and look forward to entering the rock swarm and getting to know jack, because I don’t know jack yet. cheers!
Really fun game!! The game mechanics are super smooth, and it gets surprisingly challenging. I still haven’t passed level 3! The game feels very well polished, for example, the retrograde thruster has less thrust available than the main thruster, and the damage to your ship / your health is reflected in a circle (and the ship has directional damage)! It would be cool if you could land on an asteroid, although that wouldn’t follow the original Asteroids arcade game :) I’m just a big fan of Lunar Lander..
Space Battle SVF
Great game, enjoyed every minute.
Asteroids on steroids? An arcade game with a good story? A spaceship tweaker’s dream? At its heart, Star Runner is an intense, challenging 2D space shooter with resource collection, depth and replayability. Zip through dynamically created solar systems to wreak havok on enemy spaceships and starbases while dancing around asteroids to mine them for the materials needed for weapons, thrusters and repairs. Weapons at the player’s disposal include lasers, photon cannons, railguns, homing missiles (plasma, antimatter, nuke) and three special weapons (cloak, wormhole generator, systems hacker). Gather enough resources during your assault to unleash the ultimate weapon – the mysterious StarBuster. It is a lesson in destruction the galaxy shall never forget.
Ok here’s my full review. The game starts hard both in campaign and endless because of the slow weapon they give you first. Maybe they could have started the game with the railgun or upgrade the base weapon to 2 beams instead of just 1, making it more fair and more different than the railgun when not upgraded. Making the upgrades 2-3-5 beams instead of 1-3-5 beams.
The game ended abruptly in the short 6th chapter with a somewhat underwhelming boss battle. I felt the campaign was a bit short with missing bosses battles. (In endless there’s no shortage of bosses so that’s great but I would have like one or two more different ones). There’s no big story and you don’t get attached to the characters of the game, it’s all action but I didn’t really mind that. I like the variety of enemies but the critters feels like they could to be adjusted, a lot of times I couldn’t finish them fast enough and I’m not sure how to kill them if you don’t have seeking missiles since once they get to you they circle close around you so I extend my arms and make big circles for a minute while they chase me until the missiles take care of them, weird mechanic.
I started playing this in beta a few weeks ago and fell in love with it right away. It’s ambitious for a small dev team and you can tell they put everything they could into it. For a space themed shooter they have cracked it. The environments are great especially the floating asteroids and planet galaxy backdrops you get the sense your really in the void. As to the shooting, the waves can sometimes be a little short but I think the aim is to be a casual bullet hell shooter and I’ve found myself just playing Antiprism for the no thinking just shoot aspect. Time and time again instead of bigger games. I want to see more intense enemy waves and bosses so I will keep playing but all in all they have done a great job with this. Just little tweaks needed here and there but totally enjoyable experience. I can’t wait for this to come to quest2 as this game deserves to get noticed
