Pros: Fun, retro, great control scheme (and in-game reminders of how to control your ship)
Cons: I can't really think of any. The game's difficulty could go here, but it's not horrible. Many improvements have been made over the course of development to ease the game's difficulty.
Tips: Collect as many blue orbs as you can, they are currency. Repair ship in-between battles
Starship Rubicon is a fun and challenging game, which was inspired by Asteroids. This takes many players back to their childhood playing classic games, something that's missing from many modern day games. However, this is not simply a clone.
Essentially, the player is a lone pilot out to defeat an alien nemesis in space. At the beginning, the player is given the option of a few different ships to use, each with it's own attributes. Over the course of the game, these ships can be upgraded by purchasing parts at a ship or by finding equipment stashes on the map. Other ships can also be unlocked.
The game is challenging, but by participating in the progress of the game, I've seen vast improvements to help make the game a bit more easier. While defeating enemies, the player will notice blue orbs dropping from defeated enemies or by shooting blue asteroids. These are the currency for the game and it is best to collect as many of them as possible. Luckily, the Steam version has made these center toward the exit upon completion of battle.
