This is a team-work space survival game where you must take on tasks to keep your ship together and also fire at enemy invaders. Controlling a team of Cat Astronauts, it’s a management challenge as you repair systems, extinguish fires, arm the torpedoes, avoid deadly solar flares, destroy your friends and clone them back again. It starts quite easily, and the controls are simple, but similar to games like Overcooked, the fun is found as things get hectic and you must act quickly and coordinate who does what.
