I can’t help but wonder; once mankind has branched out into space and begun to colonize new worlds and so on, would they really call them “Space Pirates?” I mean, they’re already in space. Space is kind of where everyone goes now. Why not just call them “Pirates?” But I’m getting (way) off-subject here. I’m not supposed to be discussing possible semantics for situations I’ll never encounter in the far future, I’m supposed to be talking about e3D: SpaceShip, a new “Escape” game from Bored.com.
After getting boarded and captured by these pirates who frequent space, players have to escape (duh) and take the ship back. The game follows the expected formula of finding objects, occasionally combining these objects and using them to solve all manner of puzzles. In space. Additionally, extra collectibles can be found and completion times are posted to Game Center. And who doesn’t love a good speed run or collectible hunt?
Anyone with even an ounce of interest in puzzle-solving or Escape-themed games can download e3D: SpaceShip right this very moment. It’s even free!
