Product Description

Alone in space, light years away from your family, armed with only your Fistcannon, Platform Drill and the meanest cup of coffee in the sector; you are Cargo Corps’ latest recruit, a Cargo Commander. Your responsibilities are simple: travel through the vast reaches of wormhole-filled space salvaging priceless cargo from alien infested containers. The work, however, is hard, honest, and hairy: punch deadly mutants in the face, travel between your ship and containers using advanced Cargo Corp. approved technology like Jumping and Holding Your Breath, jockey for promotions with thousands of other Cargo Commanders in the galaxy, collect over 80 different cargo types ranging from pimp shoes to rare alien minerals, all the while earning your way back home.

IF the repetitive nature of this 2D, lite rouge-like doesn't put you off, you will enjoy playing it. each level starts you with no upgrades and limited ammo. its up to you to find resources in the semi randomly generated levels of each area and use them to upgrade your gear, buy ammo or replenish health. your character is equipped with a drill that can break most of the walls and floors in the game and since the rooms are floating in space, you will never get stuck as you can drill out of a room float in space and drill back in at another point. as for all rouge likes, the rooms aren't "balanced" so you might cruise through the level until you reach a room that has an overwhelming number of enemies. these rooms can also reduce frame rates on low end PCs ( i cant comment on high end PCs as i don't have one :P ). my major criticism with the game is that it does not have enough variety. enemy types, weapons and environments can get very repetitive.
i found the art style and theme very pleasing. the game can be considered a satire piece, poking fun at corporations who try to use "gamification" techniques to motivate their employees all while exploiting them in dead end jobs. one example is that throughout the game you can use the various items you pickup in the levels to pay a fee so you can receive packages from your family (who think you have a comfortable desk job). the game can make you feel bad for not being able to pay for one of these packages right away, and that is intentional.

This game is really fun, challenging and dirt cheap. At the regular price the game is a great deal and if it is on sale there is no reason to not add this to your STEAM library. Many hear "rogue-like" and assume this is game has an ultra steep learning curve and requires some vast esoteric knowledge, but it is honestly easy to pick up and your skill should increase quickly after an hour or two of play. You enter a Sector with ANY name you choose (fair warning: there is no censorship) and each stage is a combination of procedurally generated content mixed with a sprinkling of designed content (to ensure that all levels can be completed). The great thing is if your friends enter the same name they are able to play the same exact stage so scores can be compared and are stored on a leaderboard for all to see. Get the #1 spot and you get a crown. So if you make an unusual named Sector and you might just be #1 for all time! With an infinite number of levels and several game modes this game has a great replay value, especially at its price point.

Good things to know when you first start playing:
o Use a gamepad! As with most games an XBox 360 controller greatly improves the experience. When you hit (LS) your Cargo Commander will drop the F-Bomb to "let off steam."
o Coffee speeds you up 20%, but is dropped with any damage so don't forget to pick up a new cup with each new pull.
o Upgrades only last through the end of your run! Also, you will amass better starting upgrades so don't fret over your score when you first start playing.
o The game does feature a compelling story, which is cleverly told through emails and packages sent from home.

This game has a form of always-on DRM that is not mentioned in the description, in order to play anything beyond the initial level and to track any process, you have to connect to their servers. But, it also has a game breaking bug for some people that causes it to refuse to connect to their servers, thus making the game worthless. This bug has existed for over a year and is unlikely to be fixed. It seems to primarily affect people using Windows 7 64-bit, so if you use that OS, stay away.

The game itself, assuming it works for you, is fairly fun, but very repetitive.
