About this game
Developer: Knapnock Games
Content Rating: Everyone10+
Affordable Space Adventures is a stealth puzzle spaceship simulator. Control your craft solo or in a crew of up to three players. The Wii U GamePad™ is your Heads Down Display and gives you precise control over all the internal systems of the ship. Tweak the thrusters, antigravity, stabilizer and many more systems in order to successfully navigate a hostile planet and sneak past alien robots. Explosions, engine shutdowns, blown fuses and implosions may occur. In co-op mode, players must coordinate as a crew controlling the spaceship together; one will take the role of engineer, while another will be the pilot. A science officer can join the fun as well.

Affordable Space Adventures is a great way to do precisely that, and it's especially welcome if you've been looking for a Wii U title that uses the hardware to offer a genuinely unique and reasonably substantial experience. Are you looking for a journey into the digital unknown that won't break the bank? If so, then is the one that you should embark upon.
Affordable Space Adventures is a game that can only work on the Wii U. Its two-screen experience is exactly what the system was designed for and the result is a unique breath of fresh air that might actually force player to hold that breath in certain situations. The multiplayer doesn't pan out too well and there were some physics glitches, but this is a game that Wii U owners need to get their hands on.
Still, there’s just no denying that Affordable Space Adventures is, at the very least, a cleverly designed game that could only exist on the Wii U. It’s refreshing to see someone making good use of the hardware even as Nintendo seems content to let their innovative controller’s potential remain largely untapped. Though it can’t completely make up for its odd-duck status as a game that would’ve been better off omitting single-player entirely, the innovation of it all certainly eases the blow.
