One-man studio PassTech Games and Focus Home Interactive are excited to announce that having sold over 50,000 copies globally on PC, Space Run is warping onto the MacApp Store tomorrow to reach an entirely universe of gamers.

About Space Run

Space Run is the work of "one-man studio" PassTech Games and pays true homage to 1980s sci-fi using its codes and references. The game is a smart mix of strategy, vessel construction and tower defense mechanisms, interweaving numerous twists, intensity and a hyper dynamic gameplay.

A Space Runner doesn't just deliver goods from one end of the galaxy to the other - you'll need a large dose of ingenuity, intuition and ability to react if you want to complete the various missions you are offered. But although your main task is to make intergalactic deliveries as fast as possible while keeping your merchandise (and your vessel) intact, countless external elements will come to hamper your progress: asteroid belts, fleets of pursuing pirates and particularly nasty interstellar corsairs. the threats are everywhere!

Load your cargo, charge up your laser cannons, shields and reactors and set out on the missions that have been assigned to you. The construction phase of your vessel will form the core of the gameplay: find the right balance of speed, defense and firepower! The more successful you are, the higher your reputation will soar, and this will be reflected in your bank account. This will enable you to unlock new modules for your ship and additional upgrades to increase your tactical options, either to embark on new and more dangerous missions or to replay a mission to improve your score!
