Gameplay

Space Safari throws in all kinds of environments and hazards your way as you attempt to take down your prey. In one level you might be passing through The Caverns of Mortazona – a mining facility with lakes of deadly lava and fire spouts.



In another level you might be exploring The Seas of Sespia - a deep endless ocean full of sunken ships and nightmarish hungry creatures. Later levels will take you through energy zapping laser fields and unbreakable rock-like giants. The road won’t be easy, but with you at the wheel, it also won’t be impossible.

At the end of each level there is a unique boss awaiting to take you on. This is your primary target; you need to take him down and claim your bounty before moving on to the next level.



Throughout the game, you control a sleek and very agile vehicle – the ATKV-1 (All Terrain Kill Vehicle). The ATKV is fully prepared to tackle any and all challenges. You can jump up to higher platforms instantly and even turn on a dime. There is a rocket launcher attached to the top of the vehicle that allows you to attack overhead enemies. You can also rain death from above by dropping mines on enemies down below. Your main means of attack however is your onboard cannon.

Throughout the course of the game you can acquire new upgrades that can enhance your cannon. From a chaingun that shoots multiple bullets to a spreader that shoots in three directions at once. There are also additional power-ups which can make your journey easier like energy tanks and shields.

Story

In Space Safari, you play a mysterious space hunter who travels the galaxy in search of the most dangerous game to hunt. Your travels have brought you to the treacherous planet of Volotor – a planet once ruled by an advanced race of people known as the Vol. It is now overrun by all manner of lethal creatures. Only a fool would consider planning a safari on it. Armed with your ATKV-1 (All Terrain Kill Vehicle) you drop onto the planet’s surface in search of prey to hunt. What others call suicide, you call fun!

The vehicle looks too stiff to me, it needs momentum and weight added to it.

The games visual quality is obviously one of the cons, and that's something you've already addressed and reassured the people that you and your partner are planning on making that aspect of the game better.

That aside, there is the matter of gameplay. The gameplay looks dull, and with something such as a game like this, where there are many other games very similar to this, having solid and fun gameplay is very important. It might be hard to do, and it might change other aspects of the game simply because it's so late in development, but tweak the gameplay a little bit. Make sure that it's fun to play. If you can, get a group of twenty people and have them test the game for an hour, or even half an hour each, and give you instant feedback. You can take notes on their feedback and use that to polish the game even more.
