Space Run Launched For Macs
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Focus Home Interactive has announced the release of a Mac version of Space Run. The sci-fi strategy game puts players in charge of a starship captain struggling to deliver goods to far flung parts of the galaxy while dealing with threats such as asteroid belts and pirate fleets.

A Space Runner doesn't just deliver goods from one end of the galaxy to the other - you'll need a large dose of ingenuity, intuition and ability to react if you want to complete the various missions you are offered. But although your main task is to make intergalactic deliveries as fast as possible while keeping your merchandise (and your vessel) intact, countless external elements will come to hamper your progress: asteroid belts, fleets of pursuing pirates and particularly nasty interstellar corsairs. the threats are everywhere!
 
Load your cargo, charge up your laser cannons, shields and reactors and set out on the missions that have been assigned to you. The construction phase of your vessel will form the core of the gameplay: find the right balance of speed, defense and firepower! The more successful you are, the higher your reputation will soar, and this will be reflected in your bank account. This will enable you to unlock new modules for your ship and additional upgrades to increase your tactical options, either to embark on new and more dangerous missions or to replay a mission to improve your score!

The year is 2525. You are captain Buck Mann, the most fearless, daredevil and the most broke of all the pilots in the galaxy! Your new job: you are a Space Runner, one of the space haulage contractors whose job is to transport valuable cargo from one end of the galaxy to the other... and one thing's for sure: it's going to be a bumpy ride. Not only do the cosmic highways regularly pass through asteroid belts of all sizes, but they are also used by dangerous and unscrupulous pirates armed to the teeth, whose fighters and battle cruisers will make short work of your transport vessel if you're totally unprepared. And finally, you will also encounter other galactic "drivers" with whom you are fiercely competitive, so take this opportunity to give them a friendly blast from your turbo lasers when you overtake them!

Fulfil your contracts with gusto and your reputation will soar, opening the doors to new clients and more demanding and hazardous assignments... but which will also be more lucrative! The rewards earned from these missions will enable you to unlock new modules for your ship or upgrade those you already own: luxuries you can't afford to be without if you want to survive the mortal perils lurking in space. Laser turrets, missile launchers, shield generators, thrusters, power plants and other modules will allow you to adapt to new combat situations in mid-flight that arise on your travels. Build, recycle, repair and reposition the modules and improvise as best you can to deal with the multiple threats you will face.

Retry the first missions with new and more technically advanced modules you've just unlocked to complete them more quickly and improve your score. Then enter a brutal race with your friends to finish each mission in the shortest time possible... preferably with your ship still intact!
