Rocket Run is a challenging retro space exploration game inspired by Gravitar and Thrust, in which you attempt to navigate your rocket around hazard-filled levels, collecting artefacts and using precise control of your thrust to avoid bumping into things.
Rocket Run uses the same rotate-and-thrust control scheme as used in Thrust and Gravitar, with you having to account for gravity and momentum as you delicately control the thruster. Making your way around each level, collecting artefacts and finding the landing pad can be quite a challenge – especially when you come across enemies and space mines. You do have a blaster to shoot enemies with, but it can be a little tricky to aim and avoid bashing into walls at the same time, so a lot of the time you’re best off just getting the hell out of there!
Rocket Run impresses with its challenging gameplay, beautiful pixel art animation and atmospheric soundtrack. A fun old school space exploration game that requires real skill to master.
