Reviews about the game

Space Codex27.07.2016

[h1]"Retro feelings in pink space"[/h1] Space Codex is a retro arcade space shooter in a minimalistic design & an epic soundtrack. Tho the game is not completely finished yet (missing controller support, graphics options) the look & feel makes it quite fun and it is challenging. Or rather not? Some ppl brag that the game is beatable in under 10 mins because of overly easyness. I cannot cover this. To score over 100k points a decent guide of "how to gain the 100x multiplier" is strongly missing. Otherwise they just got it lucky without knowing what they were doing.

Every now and then I like to page through Steam and see if I can find any weird, cheap games. I usually find nothing, but today I found Space Codex! It's normally $.99, but I got it on sale for $.59. Even even if a game doesn't look that great, who could pass it up at that price? Not I. And it even had good reviews! Wowza! (There were only six reviews, but everyone seemed to like it) Space Codex is a straight forward, top-down twin-stick style arcade shooter. Bad guys fly towards you and you shoot them, that's just about the whole game. There is a handful of power-ups and a few different enemy types. There are also three different ship types to choose from, each with different stats. The basic gameplay is simple but pretty solid, and the music is surprisingly good. There is a pretty good variety of tracks, too. With a game this small, they could have easily gotten away with a single repeating track, so the variety is appreciated. Now, here's a few of the gripes I have with the game: (A couple hours after posting my review on Steam, the dev commented on it and told me he'd fixed a lot of the issues. I'm very impressed!) -Once you choose your ship, you can't go back. You have to reset the game (Apparently, you just have to hit escape, then click "Select Ship". This wasn't even an issue that actually needed fixed. I just didn't think to hit escape because I'm a dummy.) -Power-ups are hard to see against the stars in the background. The shield especially, since it's just a light-blue circle. (The dev added a nice glow effect to all the power-ups. Not only are they easier to see now, but they look cool, too!) -No controller support. (Controller support is being worked on.) (If you have a Steam Controller, I've uploaded a control scheme for the game, feel free to use that.) -No Leaderboard. (Leaderboards are also being worked on.) -There is a small window after dying where hitting the boost key restarts the game. (You can totally ignore that complaint now. Totally fixed!) Like I said, the dev very quickly fixed most of the issues I had with their game. I can definitely recommend it now. It's good fun, especially for the price it's being sold at.

Uggghh, it's hard to know what to say about Space Codex. Long story short; every review has to answer the question as to whether you would recommend the game or not. I wouldn't recommend this. I'd say go off and play something like Geometry Wars instead. HOWEVER, it's not like the game is bad. It's just completely inoffensive, There's a few bugs but nothing majorly broken, the gameplay is fine but nothing to write home about by a long shot, and so on. I played it for 45 minutes (And left it running to get the trading cards DON'T JUDGE ME) and will never touch it again, but for the price I paid I can't complain; You can easily spend three times as much on a cup of coffee, for goodness sake. There's better out there, yeah, but you won't hate yourself if you end up buying this.

Asteroid-like game with a few different spaceships and powerups, with catchy music. Does not have Windowed mode, players cannot switch to other applications on the foreground. For the price is a decent game, though I would wait for a sale. 5/10, would be 7/10 without the issue above.

Just run around in circles using the second spaceship, every drops count (The items that can be used for protection of your ship or bonus damage) overall, just think of some strategies that you can pull off quickly, cause the longer you play, the harder it gets

Fun little space arcade game reminding me of the yesteryears. Gameplay is smooth. UI is not buggy, other than the fact that whenever you get an achievement, the bottom right part of the screen gets glitched out. I prefer the second ship for my gameplay style and I'm close to reaching the 100k score for the final achievement. (UPDATE: I've got this one too now, with the same ship) The game is pretty easy but with time, unless you properly position yourself and shoot accurately, you will be overwhelmed. The background score sounds good too. If the dev hasn't done so already, I hope he thinks about releasing this game on the Android, iOS and Windows 10 Mobile platforms too, because this has potential to be a fun game to play on the go.
