Space games are able to add dimensions (literally) to games where most other game genres aren’t. The lack of gravity allows for games to get creative with aspects such as jumps and falls. Take the game Gravity Control for example. In this action-packed space game, players can change how gravity affects them in order to make it to the end of the level. This is a fun switch up to an otherwise somewhat basic platformer game.
Along with this, space games tend to have higher stakes than normal games. Oftentimes the concept is about saving the world against a horde of invading aliens, dangerous spaceships, or even incoming meteors! No matter what the enemy is, you are bound to have a fun time playing it.
Finally, in a lot of these games, you also get to play as aliens. This means that you have different athletic abilities, different looking characters, different . . . well everything! Space games just have so much potential for variation that there is no reason not to check them out and see which ones you love. So get out there and start experimenting with something new, you might be surprised by just how much fun you have with this playlist.
