Affordable Space Adventures is yet another indie game making its way to Wii U. Nintendo was excited to show off some exclusive footage and give us all new details. What are you waiting for?

  • Yacht Club Games
  • probably not coming out this fall
  • Stealth game, 2D sidescroller puzzle game, control ship, GamePad is like cockpit of the ship
  • spaceship is self repairing
  • engine can alter your mass to sink/rise in water, shoot flare to hit buttons
  • flashlight to see in dark areas
  • stabilizer – makes ship “super stable” for precision flying, uses lots of electricity from engine
  • Scanner – can scan robots to see range of vision, GamePad will show what they scan for (some detect heat, need electric engine; some detect sound, require slow movement without much thrusters)
  • producing a lot of heat (using heat engine + increasing your mass, for instance) can set your ship on fire, can’t do it for long or you’ll explore
  • Multiplayer Demo – players control different aspects of the ship (flashlight, movement, engine types), must cooperate and trust each other to get ship through the levels
  • Overarching story – more at the start of the game, via tutorial messages; later levels focus mostly on puzzles
  • Some enemies are scared of light; will retreat if you shine flashlight on them
  • landing gear lets you pick up blocks and carry them elsewhere; can block lasers
  • can close heat vents to avoid producing heat; will burn you up if you don’t let the heat out soon, though

Our Verdict

Nathanial Rumphol-Janc
I am the current Editor-in-Chief of Zelda Informer and have been running the show here since July 16th, 2008. I've actually been running Zelda Fan sites since 1998, so I've been in this "industry" for roughly 16 years. I'm 28 years old and have two kids, one biological, the other more of a step daughter (not legally yet, but practically). I live with my girlfriend and our two kids (Aiden, age 1 and half, Melody age 3 and half). I'm attending college to create video games web applications, and I naturally love Nintendo (I run a Zeld a website after all!). For those curious, I currently own a Wii U, Xbox One, 3DS, PlayStation 3, and a gaming PC (and a gaming capable laptop too!). I do plan to eventually get a PlayStation 4, likely when more comes out I am interested in playing on the system. I do play the Wii U more than any other system I own.
