Ouya Review: Astronaut Rescue

Astronaut Rescue

I already wrote briefly about 8 year-old Noah Graff’s game Astronaut Rescue. The idea that an 8 year-old was empowered enough by the Ouya to make a game, is an amazing story in and of itself. When I was that age, I don’t think I ever had the guts to make something like this in any way. I am glad that this kid took the effort to make it. Over the weekend, I finally got the chance to play this kid’s creation.

The game itself is rather simple. You control a spaceship. You job is to navigate from “moon” to “moon” rescuing stranded astronauts. You also must avoid getting hit by asteroids. Hitting one kills you and you must start the entire game over again. There are no extra lives. Upon rescuing all the astronauts in a single level, you are taken to the next level with more astronauts and more asteroids. So the challenge is ramped up every time you succeed.

Ouya Empowers Anyone To Make Games, Even 8 Year-old Kids

Astronaut RescueOk. This is pretty awesome. I love the Ouya. The openness behind he console is very inspiring for pretty much anyone. The way the system is designed, anyone can make and sell games for it. This means that indies like Juicy Beast, big studios like Square Enix, and even 8 year-old kids can make games. That’s right, 8-year old Noah Graff is releasing his first game for the Ouya on launch day. That game is Astronaut Rescue.

I will let him tell you all about it.
