Space Marauder (Dreams) Review
Posted: 7 weeks ago, last updated 4 weeks ago.
You play an asteroid miner in a spaceship, tasked by your overseer, Ruby, with mining the myriad asteroids that populate the space around your base. You encounter dangerous mines that can detonate and destroy you, and you need to watch out for bands of hog pirates who'd like nothing more than to blast you into oblivion.
You move around using your joysticks, one for speed and one for direction. The physics system makes moving around accurately really tough and requires a lot of practice and skill. You can upgrade your lasers, which you use to shoot asteroids, mines and enemy ships, as well as get other upgrades, such as fuel capacity, health and rate of fire. If you die, you lose all the resources you were carrying and respawn back at your base. You can then go back and collect what you lost.
It's a unique modern twist on old arcade games like Asteroids, which expands on the formula with new gameplay elements and controls, but keeps the core elements that made those old games successes.

The text and subtitles throughout the game are all large and high contrast, and each speaker has a box with their name and a picture of them. While all the speech is voice acted, there is a filter on some of the voices that could make it difficult to understand for some people.
As there are only two colours in the game, that contrast each other well, it is easy to distinguish between individual elements.
