Space Commander 1954! by Curtland
Another great level! It's levels like these and the one before it that remind me why I love doing these reviews.
This level is story based and it's in black and white... But it does it well! Anyway, you're on a spaceship which is getting hit by meteors, you're sent to check it out.. only to find out your ship flips upside down and crash lands. Your ship is really huge so this was quite impressive.
Then you walk around on a strange alien moon like planet.
There's a bad guy on it who controls all the robots.. he's a pretty cool enemy who makes his appearances a few times before you have to fight him piloting a huge robot (this fight was awesome btw).
The level design and production is top notch.. great art direction too. Everything looks and feels just like an old black and white sci fi movie.
My only complaint is that the platforming elements are a little basic. But I really don't care since the setting and story were so awesome.
Level Design: 9
Replay Value: 6
Fun Factor: 8
Overall Score: 9.5(not an average)
