Thank you, spaceman, but our princess is on another planetoid.
Space Chicks is an endless-running game with an out-of-this world twist. Instead of booking it in a straight line, you see, you run around tiny planets and use their gravitational fields to launch yourself from celestial body to celestial body.
Our guarantee: you will say "Wheee!" out loud at least once while playing this game.
Space Chicks opens with trouble in the galaxy. A space pirate has kidnapped several lovely space ladies. Your job? To rescue them. Of course.
It ought to be noted that the maker of Space Chicks doesn't take itself the least bit seriously, so the game's storyline (to say nothing of the wanton use of the term "chicks") is meant to serve as a parody of the super-macho space adventures that permeated pop culture when Western civilisation was still starry-eyed about space exploration.
Space Chicks is great fun, though the action can get crowded at times. It boldly goes where no endless-runner has gone before, and the genre is better for it
