Description
My name is Brian Rubin, and I'm something of a space game expert, I'd like to think. My site, Space Game Junkie (http://www.spacegamejunkie.com) is dedicated to supporting old and new, indie and AAA computer space games, and the purpose of this list is to showcase all of the space games in Greenlight that I have experience with and therefore can recommend personally. If you're looking for an all-inclusive list, you can see it here (http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=93683050). Thanks, and enjoy!

Hi everyone, pls take a moment to check out our game. 1337 Studio introduces Asteroid Bounty Hunter, a space shooter, that on the first resembles old arcade games, but give it some time to experience the full dept of the game. Your primary mission is to blow things up, but as the game progresses you will find that numerous upgrades and new ships will spice the feel, dozens of unique boss fights, new enemies every level and more. So spare a moment and check it out.
