House of the Dying Sun is a tactical space shooter that puts you in the cockpit of the Empires most deadly interceptor and in command of the Harbinger Fleet. Hunt down the enemies of your dying empire and upgrade your warships with new weapons and abilities earned during your campaign of terror. Classic Space Sim Combat: Fly from the cockpit of the Executor Mk II with gameplay heavily influenced by the titans of yesteryear Take Command: Give orders to any vessel in your fleet from a tactical overview, switch to another fighter, or pause time and carefully consider your next move Replayable Scenarios: Choose one of four increasingly-brutal difficulties in each of the 14 campaign scenarios. Powerful Upgrades: Complete bonus objectives to earn special fleet upgrades such as the Gap Drive or the Kamikaze Chassis. Youll need these to tackle the most difficult scenarios.
Entertaining. That's how I would describe the game. You get thrown into the game quickly, not a big TraRa around it. ''The Emperor is dead'. Cool, what am I supposed to do. ''Kill the Traitors'. Nice, I will. And you're in. The fights follow the...
same system. You select a mission, set the level of difficulty, quickly select the weaponry, and you're in the mission. Each level has a different goal: defend something, attack something, punish some civilians. Sometimes kill a boss. Then leave before the flagship arrives and the mission is complete. The graphics are simple, but still bring the battle atmosphere across well. The sound backdrop does the rest. As time goes by the levels get harder, of course, but as you complete the levels you will gradually unlock better armament and more ships for your own fleet. And then, after 2 hours, you are already through. It's really short. Sure, a lot of people say, of course: ''Ey, 20€ for 2 hours, bit 'n bissl crazy? '. Yes, I say, but that really doesn't matter here! And of course, it's really a lot, so if you're not sure, you should just wait for a sale. So, you get a nice game for entertaining fun for more or less Lau. All in all, I give a buy recommendation. Nothing pisses me off here except the price.
