Customer Reviews

Space War Classic is SO close. . .

This game reminds me of one of my most favorite games from the era of classic arcade games. However, it is very frustrating to play because of the non-standard control layout and the lack of options such as the ability to increase, decrease and reverse the Star's gravity, and having a ship that can survive a hit, but lose maneuverability and perhaps other options as well. I would like to see the developers improve the game, and I will GLADLY pay for a better and more playable game.

This game is so close

If it weren't for the non-standard and irritating controls it would hit the mark.

It has joined a long list of retro games that miss the mark because they don't adopt the standard left/right (left hand) thrust/fire (right hand) or even the newer style d-pad.

Who puts a thrust button between the turn buttons, anyway? It's as if they don't expect anybody to ever want to thrust and turn at the same time.

So hopeful but ultimately disappointed
