Space Run Review (Strategy Informer)

From Strategyinformer.com: "Space Run: Fast and Safe Delivery unashamedly wears its tongue-in-cheek 80s era science fiction inspiration on its intergalactic sleeve. In referential gaming terms, it is a game which also shares two well-worn similarities to the bullish neon and decadent decade now over 25 years gone: sidescrolling gameplay; and a grossly arrogant, and at times outrightly obnoxious, protagonist. Yes, like classics such as Missile Command and Space Invaders, Space Run lays forth simplistic and easy to grasp gaming conventions, and couples them with an ever-burgeoning enemy threat matched by a lead character - Buck Mann - who displays the brash conceit akin to his 80s forerunners Sly Spy, or Strider Hyru, or Double Dragon’s Billy Lee." (PC, Space Run) 5.5/10
