In Event Horizon: Space Defense you are in command of a fleet of ships, and you have to defend your space base. You have to defeat wave after wave of enemies, all the while collecting power-ups, ships and mercs to help in your assault.

I found the controls a little difficult to use. Trying to stop on a dime was almost impossible, and I constantly overshot. There is an energy level when shooting, this is to stop you from shooting all over the place. You have to plan your shots and get close enough to hit them.

You can grab “bolt-ons” for your ship and base. These can include weapons and armour. Additional ships can be unlocked, and then be upgraded. This part of the game was quite addictive and I spent a while attaching weapons to my base and ship.

Exploration is a key aspect of this game, you can explore the far reaches of space, fight space worms, hire mercs and find blueprints and hidden treasures. These blueprints can then be used to unlock additional ships.

My issue with the game is that there is no goal. You play wave after wave, they increase in difficulty to you have to adapt and upgrade. This ends up being a never-ending spiral of kill, upgrade, repeat.

Overall, Event Horizon: Space Defense is a fun space game. But without a story or goal, becomes forgotten quickly. Finally, please check out our gaming reviews. Also, don’t forget to connect with the Jabba Reviews team on Facebook or Twitter.
