Alone in space, light years away from your family, you are Cargo Corps’ latest recruit, a Cargo Commander. Your responsibilities are simple: travel through the vast reaches of wormhole-filled space salvaging priceless cargo from alien infested containers. The work, however, is hard, honest, and hairy: punch and shoot deadly mutants in the face, while traveling between your ship and containers. Jockey for promotions with thousands of other Cargo Commanders in the galaxy, collect over 80 different cargo types, all the while earning your way back home. * Randomly generated sectors based on names that you can choose, shared with other players * Fully destructible environments; create your own path with your Platform drill and explosives * Compete with other players; each sector has an online leaderboard * 2 modes: Career and Journey * Loot the bodies of other players * Upgrade your weapons and tools * Find and send postcards, and encounter cards lost by other players
A fiddly an actually quite irritating game that seems intent on annoying the player more than anything. You are always in a hurry and never have time to enjoy yourself before you have to go back to base.
The combat is aggravating because there's not enough room to fight and the system of moving from room to room can be infuriating because of the strange 'flipping' thing they all do.
This game makes me angry.
Has always on DRM (you can play, but can't progress). Expect this from EA and Blizzard, but I thought indies respected the gamer more.
Also requires Steam, but than doesn't start properly from the Steam client (on Mac), so you have to run it directly from the file system.
Game itself has very repetitive game-play.
I bought this game long time ago directly from steam, never had any problems with running it, though i understand that many people may not like the fact that cargo commander has always on DRM. As the description says sectors are generated randomly, and after over 10 hours i'm still getting sector pass challenges i have not seen. The game is really good as randomly generated platformer with upgrades, ranks and leaderboards. You can check my gameplay here: Youtube.com
