The game takes place in an infinite procedurally generated space with asteroids, enemy ships, and planets that offer merchants, healing, and quick travel. As you gain experience, you can upgrade the health, energy, and damage capabilities of your spaceship. You can also purchase stackable weapons and undertake missions. Two control methods are available: classic top-down WASD movement or more realistic thrusters and turning like a ship. The basic AI can become challenging when grouped, and a significant XP death penalty means caution should be exercised on occasion. The game’s weapon system and procedurally generated universe combine to make Space: The Return Of The Pixxelfrazzer a somewhat unique action role-playing game.
