Top Critic Average
Spacejacked is a wonderful combination of tower defense and fast paced action. The game's hectic nature along with the necessity to plan out your defenses makes for a fun and engaging challenge. It may take some trial and error to find what works best for each player, but that's part of the fun.
Similar to a classic arcade game but made better, Spacejacked is extremely addicting and delightfully frustrating.
If nothing else, Spacejacked easily meets the most important criteria I have when reviewing games — fun. Its frantic pace, interesting take on the genre, and well-executed mechanics make for an enjoyable experience.
Mega Man and tower-defence fans that don't mind a more casual experience will more than likely be happy with Spacejacked, other players may be turned off by length.
There's nothing here that stands out as good or bad, and it's more or less exactly what would be expected form the phrase "fast-paced tower defense." Obviously, this means that strategy and tactics will play a smaller role, and that's disappointing, because tactics are a big part of the appeal with such games. The graphics and music are done well, but the limited options and single-minded commitment to haste hurt this title by forcing it to be shallow. It's certainly fun and enjoyable, but it also feels like "arcade" is thrown in here as a way of saying "don't expect any depth."
I went into [Spacejacked] thinking that it would be a lighthearted, fun, yet fast paced game to play casually… I never thought that in a matter of minutes it would become the one and only thing that fueled the hate fire within me
Spacejacked is an impressive action-packed indie tower defense game that's full of delightful charm.
