Containing everything you would want from a space-based roguelike - i.e. shooting lasers, death, and experience points - Space Colors is unfortunately a disappointingly hollow experience. At least it certainly is at the beginning of the game.
The combat is very simple for a long amount of time, you die often, and the upgrades you need to progress always seem so far out of reach.
But Space Colors has its redeeming features as well, including a gorgeous game engine with stylish lighting effects, plus a sardonic (and genuinely funny) sense of humour.
