Space exploration isn’t something we’ve accustomed to seeing in Android games, but Out There combines that with a good level of strategy to make it one of the must have games of 2014. You start off with your ship, with the idea being that you need to find resources and upgrades for your vessel in the planets around you to survive. Sounds easy, right? Well not really, as one wrong move could see your resources wrongly used and your ship instantly shot out of space.
Along the way you’ll encounter other ships, black holes and other objects that can cause damage to you. At every stage you need to think on your feet to scavenge for resources and that’s ultimately what makes the game so compelling to play. Once you die, which you will many times, you’ll start all over again with another random generated world to explore.
There’s so much to love about Out There. It’s truly an original game, looks great and is ridiculously engaging to play. It won’t be too everyone’s cup of tea, but this is one title certainly worth checking out if you want to try something different.
