A distress call wakes you and your crew mate from C-Sleep. A suspected rad leak at the nearby Outpost space station needs investigating. Don't worry, it should just be a quick jump in, jump out job...

Enjoy.

V1.1
- Level 3 made easier. Also forcefield is triggered during vulnerable sections of the level.
- El presidente medal fixed.
- Challenges fixed, no more broken numbers.
- Various tweaks and fixes.

V1.2
- Bug with weapons unavailable in Swarm mode fixed.
- Turrets accuracy fixed.
- Console intro can be skipped by clicking.
- Level 3 tweaked so its less likely to break ( Yet again )
- Shout out to the NG boys who helped with bugs in the credits.
- Various tweaks and fixes.

V1.3
- Challenges should be less buggy.
- Reduced the chance of being stuck in a spawn hole.
- Invisible objects fixed.
- I'm sure someone said faster running would be nice ? Done.

V1.4
- A bit of retconning ready for Outpost 2, plus a little teaser.
- Minor tweaks and fixes
- Full screen mode if you've got Flash 11.3 or greater installed.

Just a note on the quality settings, its already running in low quality, hence the lack of in-game option for it.

Outpost is a game that had initially sparked my interest for being a sci-fi survival horror game with a top-down perspective and since I really like both of these things, I gave it a try.

The Gameplay is simple, fun and with smooth controls so I donâEUTMt have any complaints here other than maybe the absence of hotkeys for weapons.

The Presentation of the game through both the GUI and the level design is absolutely stunning and makes it look like a commercial game! The lighting effects combined with the detailed levels are just brilliant!

The Content is satisfying but it still feels a little lacking in my opinion. I wanted to see a few more levels, more exploration and more enemies. We only have five different kinds of EBE, one of which was a boss. The lack of bosses was a downer but it didnâEUTMt really subtract much from the overall enjoyment of the game.

The Programming seems to be ok for the most part although there do seem to be some odd bugs and glitches in both Story Mode and Swarm Mode. Despite that though, you seem to have fixed most of these issues through updates so this has been somewhat rectified.

I actually like this game so much that I have earned every Medal on it, including the one that requires you to complete all of the challenges. And yes, I still have my sanity after doing so.

Overall, Outpost proved to be a great game even while lacking in some areas. Here are my final scores for Outpost and I hope that my review was helpful to you!

Wow, you completed all the challenges ? Excellent work mate, that's fantastic ( You're only the 2nd person I know who's done that ).

Yeah we're disappointed by the number of bugs, it was tested to death before release but still far too many slipped through. For the sequel we're going to have to look at other ways of testing it as it's going to be bigger in every way, so there will be more chance for bugs to creep in.

Thanks again for the review, and I'm glad you enjoyed it.

Metroid Fusion?

First, I have to say that I absolutely loved how the station map/ design was very reminiscent of Metroid Fusion. My only complaints are that:

1. Walking felt rather weird, maybe like there was a slight lag between a key stroke and a character movement.
2. When I pick up an info chip, the game should pause, and I shouldn't be eaten be aliens.

Otherwise, fantastic job

Maybe its... Yeah this is awesome

This actually relates to all of the sci-fi games of the century and I love how you have all of those acheivments to keep us motivated to play. The lighting is perfect, and the monsters in the shadows keep the suspense going. This game is great. But, I think you rank up too quickly. I played for 5 minutes and already I am rank 11.

Wow, we've never had that bug during testing, what a weird one.
Thanks for flagging it up, we should hopefully be doing a 1.1 soon where we can fix all these little things which always slip through. Cheers.
