Continuing their string of excellent mobile game releases, this past Thursday Amazon Game Studios and Frontier Developments launched an iOS version of their comedic, adventure puzzle game Tales From Deep Space.
Set on a space station called Big Moon, players take on the roles of two characters (a traveling salesman named E and his new companion, a K-9 like luggage drone named CASI) whose lives have been abruptly intertwined due to a case of mistaken identity. Big Moon has been thrown into a state of lockdown and the hapless duo (who are now wanted fugitives) are simply trying to work together to avoid capture, clear their names and reveal “the nefarious plot behind the mysterious ‘Red Meek’ uprising”.
Using the two character’s unique abilities, you have to flip switches, activate platforms, open doors, exterminate giant bugs and more to complete a varied set of missions. In the single player mode you control both characters, manually switching between E and CASI to get each where they need to be to solve the puzzles.
In the two-player co-op (played over local WiFi), each player controls one of the two heroes individually on their own device and you can switch off at any time. My daughter and I have really been enjoying this mode, and it works really well, with little to no lag, creating a fun father daughter bonding experience.
Like their previous games Lost Within and Til Morning’s Light, Amazon Game Studios has released another stellar production and seems to really have this mobile gaming thing licked, with three great titles right out of the gate! Definitely worth picking up, if you have not already done so.
