It's similar to heartbeat but with a space theme. Really good, on the simulation section on exercise 3, will get to play some more later on tonight or tomorrow.

I am going to wait for the IOS version, because it will be cheaper and I don't want to mess around with user names and keys.

Well, I wasn't going to buy the game right now, but when I heard it was a space adventure, I decided to go ahead. Here's my thoughts.

I like the game even though it is very confusing, because a lot of the robotic speech reminds me of the days of the old Apple II devices, but even maybe harder to understand. To that extent, I'm not quite sure what I'm supposed to be doing. Also, when you take a step, you hear two footsteps which can be rather disconcerting.

I haven't gotten far into the game yet, but I think if the speech was made clearer that this will be an awesome game.

The voice work is fine for what it is. I have no trouble understanding it but I can see if English isn't your native language it would be difficult. The game is actually fun, very much more interesting to me than the heartbeat effort because it's more narrative driven in many respects. The double footsteps could be a bug or a sound design choice to give the illusion of echo in a big empty spacecraft, I am guessing though.

The game is certainly very good for the very small size of it, I am surprised by it. Keep persevering at it, it'll be worth it I think.

I have got to level 3 on the alien ship and it's really hard but fun at the same time. Lots of things to do in this game, seriously give it a go.
