Cargo Commander reviews and comments

I love this Game. Super Humor and great Background music that fit the story, which I absolutely had to reenact on guitar, because it didn't go out of my Mind anymore, After about 4-5 Years I can still;) the Lyrics. The Game always offers the same (-you travel to different Sectors to collect different goods, which will get you points so that you can learn a lot about the Story via E-mails-) but it is a lot Of fun to play through The same sectors again and again in order to play through the same sectors in order to High Score your Mate has surpassed to surpass again. But If you don't have a Mate who plays this, you can set yourself as a Goal to crack the high Score of the whole Sector. (Or you keep changing the Sector so that the Levels change). Anyway. In terms of Playing, it is occasionally annoying with the Control, as it can be that in a Container you enter, Gravity falls in the Direction you come from and you fly back again. But that being said, the Game plays very fluently and without conspicuous Loading Times! Hurray! With all these Side Sentences, even I'm confused now. That's why I end my Review with a Smiler who is happy. Because this one represents me when I play the game in the evening:D

Achja, Cargo Commander ... A Game that has evoked a certain Love of Hate in me. This is a 2.5D Platformer where you take on the Role of Cargo Commander. The Aim is to fulfill all the Tasks of the Company for which one works so that one can finally return home, to the Earth and to his beloved Family. The Main aim is to find and collect Objects from Containers in different Galaxies. In doing so, The More containers you open and die continuously increases the degree of difficulty that increases the more containers you Open and die, the beginning, During and also towards the End of the Game, becomes the Everyday life of a Commander. You often catch yourself that you just can't resist the (New) greed and you absolutely want to open the rear container to see what's hidden in it. This can also go into your Pants when you end up in a Horde of Aliens beating the one Criss-crossing the Area. * g *:-) In Defense you have various Weapons such as a Nail Gun, Shotgun, a Revolver and THE DREADED Launcher, which skill requires So that a) is not catapulted into Space or B) transported with the Aliens underground underground underground. * räusper * As a loyal Employee, there are also different Ranks that can be unlocked by finding objects. This gives you some useful Upgrades for the Character and its Home Container. Furthermore, you can collect (and this is a real Highlight) caps that come from deceased Players, collect them and Buy upgrades, which, however, fall into disrepair due to the Switch to another Galaxy or the Death of the Character. At the Beginning of the Game you really have to think about what you want to invest in-later On this will make it easier to get to all The Upgrades due to the Routine and the unlocked Ranks. Furthermore, the Number of Caps in each Galaxy varies. The Items you can find are partly really quirky-my personal Favorite is the "Alien Sex Toy" HAHA!! x'D Just for this normal already 11/10 Conclusion: A Game with numerous entertaining Gimmicks, where Patience and skill are required and occasionally should also get a 2nd and 3rd Chance before throwing in the Towel (press F button, don't forget! * g *). Ultimately, you will be rewarded for your Staying Power! For the Treasure Hunters among you who need a Map with a large black "X," there is also useful Information on the Internet that Points out which Galaxies you can find certain Objects in. 9.5/10 Points!
