Tired of the Star Wars hype? Or are you still longing for some space battles? Howsoever, in "Aethon" you can join another intergalactic rebellion.
Another space game is waiting for a review and I am the last one to deny that. “Aethon” by “Red Shirt Games” is an unreleased space shooter, in which you “take part in the rebellion against the empire and free the galaxy from its influence.” Sounds like the perfect game to get into the mood fo Star Wars 8, right? Right!
Aethon is huge. It comes along with a cleverly designed upgrade system, a considerable range of features and functions and a tremendous amount of stages (=orbits), all virtuosically named as no Sci-Fi author could have done it better. “Shides 46-2”, “Chekalara”, “Strecenus”. Perfect.
Although “Aethon” has the scope of a full-fledged triple-A title, it’s accessible, easy to pick up and linear as a typical mobile game. Therefore, you could say that it combines the best of both worlds, which is nice.
Plus, given that I’ve only played the development build, you can already say that the game runs more smoothly and less buggy than many games on their release date. Chapeau, guys!
Nevertheless, the game isn’t finished yet and I gladly take the opportunity to contribute some ideas of what to do before pushing the release button.
Besides that, “Aethon” is well on its way to conquer the universe!
Playing “Aethon” doesn’t feel like playing an unreleased app. It has a huge scope and an impeccable performance. See it for yourself and download the game here.
