For 200 years we have been mining our solar system's asteroid belt in peace. All that changed the day the Krainian Empire invaded our outer territories! Darkside is a sci-fi based shoot 'em up, filled with hundreds of massive asteroids. Fly in and out of their dark sides as you battle a host of alien hostiles, watching for orbiting chunks of rock and blasting them into oblivion! It's time to hop into your ArkLight X-52 and take the fight back to the enemy, one battle at a time, in Darkside!
I must admit that I never played Arklight, but I did play Scavenger (and loved it), both space themed games from the same creators of Darkside. If you're into space shooters, or even arcade/action games, you definitely need to try this one.
You control a ship, using the mouse or even the keyboard if you want to. I must say that using the keyboard is entirely optional. You can play the whole game using only the mouse, although I found myself better suited using the keyboard along with the mouse.
The game play itself is really simple and intuitive, you control the ship and shoot things, getting power-ups and earning score along the way. There's 3 game modes to play: Mission, Arcade and Survival. Mission mode consists of different objectives on each level, as the name implies; Arcade mode is the usual, but still addicting "shoot everything on you way to finish the level"; and at last there's the Survival mode, in which you must survive as long as you can with only 1 life.
The graphics in the game are outstanding. It's impressive to see this level of detail, with LOTS of explosions, running this smoothly.
I'm not very fond of shooters myself, but somehow this one got me addicted. Who knew that exploding rocks on space could be so fun!
With 3 different game modes, and 3 difficulty levels, I can see myself playing this game for a long time. You certainly need to check this one out. Two thumbs up!
