Game Information

Available on:Wii UApr 9, 2015

Developer: KnapNok Games

Genres: Puzzle, Strategy

Affordable Space Adventures is a stealth puzzle spaceship simulator. Control your craft solo or in a crew of up to three players. The Wii U GamePad™ is your Heads Down Display and gives you precise control over all the internal systems of the ship. Tweak the thrusters, antigravity, stabilizer and many more systems in order to successfully navigate a hostile planet and sneak past alien robots. Explosions, engine shutdowns, blown fuses and implosions may occur. In co-op mode, players must coordinate as a crew controlling the spaceship together; one will take the role of engineer, while another will be the pilot. A science officer can join the fun as well.

What an intoxicating place it is to spend a few hours, too. There are rough edges aplenty, but while the world Affordable Space Adventures conjures is never quite pretty it's certainly immersive, one which draws you in as you struggle in the space between the main screen and the GamePad. This is one of those rare games that could only ever be possible on the Wii U, and if you've any measure of affection or interest in Nintendo's console and what it's capable of, you owe it to yourself to check it out.

One of the best uses of the Wii U GamePad so far and one of the most atmospheric games of the year, even if it does run out of new tricks before the end.
