The beta for the web version of Space Courier is now up and ready to play in your Chrome or Firefox browser. (Other browsers not fully tested yet) I invite you to give it a try and let me know what you think!
Space Courier is about finding and delivering packages in each level in order to receive a bonus to your ship that will help you reach higher levels. It's a methodical game about perfecting your movements in order to dodge incoming attacks while conserving your fuel. This style of play leads to tense situations that resolve themselves quickly, before you've burned out on the gameplay. As you progress in Space Courier, you'll be confronted with more asteroids and more enemies as hull repair and fuel drops become more scarce. Destroying asteroids can spawn fuel, but can lead to more asteroids on-screen that you'll need to dodge or destroy.
Space Courier was designed with a love of games from the early arcade era and a desire to play something with a simple control scheme that wasn't about quick twitch reactions. It will have no advertisements, no in-app purchases and will not be play-to-win.
