In Thrusty Ship your main enemy is yourself and your throttle finger

Posted by , | Views: 2,192

Thrusty Ship takes the basic gameplay of classics like Lunar Lander (and many others) with you fighting against gravity and turns it into a challenging and fun battle against your fuel gauge.

I remember many moons ago, when I was a young man playing endless amounts of Flash games and they all had the same theme, to fight against gravity and pilot some sort of ship to safety and avoid obstacles along the way. Thrusty Ship is basically an evolution of that same formula, with crispier graphics and decent gamepad support (which is pretty much essential).

Honestly, I'm kinda blown away by how addictive it is. While the entire idea is simple, the way the levels are designed along with your constant need to watch your fuel reserves makes it both frustrating and incredibly fun in equal measures.

It has a little something for everyone. If you just want to pilot your ship across the seventy something levels, you only need to collect a specific amount of orbs to allow you to land and finish. If you're a completionist, collection more will allow you to unlock other ships quicker and speed-runners can jump on in too with timed trials.

As it's a Unity game it has some rendering issues on NVIDIA resulting in some distortions along the bottom of the game. To prevent this, you can run this as a launch option:

-force-glcore42 -force-clamped

Some good, classic fun to be had with this one. It might not look like much, it looks pretty retro and feels so too but it's worth a shot.

Find it on Steam. It also has a demo you can try on itch.io.
