Talking SPAZ... No it's not a retard!

Just a heads up on a little gem of a top down, space shooter called S.P.A.Z ( Space Pirates and Zombies ). The game play is simple, fast and engaging, and you have a wide selection of ships, weapon load outs and other nifty game elements that harks back to the good old days of table-top war games.

It's got game play depth that I haven't seen in years, while the game is really easy to play... and cheap too. Only $15 US on Steam and a 160Mb download, so it shouldn't bust your usage caps.

Check it out: Space Pirates And Zombies

Bougth it after I spotted it on youtube and TotalBiscuits review. Really nice top-down with a lot of depth. Hoping the devs will continue to support and update it further.

Also, automatic turret control on huge ships is OP!

Great review of a Alpha version of the game showing off the start.

True, the devs admit that there is some game balancing still do to, but they say they are committed to fix issues, extend the content and expand on what they have produced so far.

Also cannons in general are OP, compared with beam and launcher weapons. So at the moment I am using particle cannons, turreted where possible, and I'm hosing down anything that comes close.

Finally, a good tip is to get "friendly" faction with both CIV and UTA. Then when they have their battle scenarios, the ones with the skull icon, you can fly around with impunity, picking up the debris, goons and ship designs from the combats around the zone.
