IMG Reviews Cargo Commander
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Inside Mac Games has posted a new review of Cargo Commander from Digital Tribe LLC. The game puts player in the role of a new recruit to the Cargo Corps who must salvage priceless cargo from alien infested containers by punching and shooting deadly mutants.

From the review:

Commander is a space-based platformer with gravity shifts, a few guns, and generic enemies to foil your careful looting. On its own, the game is pretty average. And then you get your first letter. Whether it's from your wife, your son, company headquarters, or even a postcard from a fellow player of the game, reading these notes is the only real reason to continue the treasure hunt.

The way it works is that you find random blank postcards while drilling through the walls of cargo containers and recovering the cargo inside. These postcards can then have a message written on them and be submitted into the sector for other players to find and read. What makes it an awesome feature is that the grand majority of players have interesting and sometimes role-play messages. You'll find a postcard where the writer expresses how much he misses his wife and wants nothing more than to return home with a shiny new medal, a postcard where someone wrote poetry about the depth of space, and occasionally a piece of ASCII art. Should you add your own contributions to the mix, others will eventually find your own piece as well. It makes the game feel quite social for a single-player game.
