Love pick-up-and-play games that pass the time in spare moments or hours? Most people do. If something fun, quick and challenging, but simple with a bit of action built in sounds like your kind of game, then give Cosmo Joe a quick look. Cosmo Joe is an arcade-type action game that pits a masked, yellow space traveler against the evils of the galaxy in an effort to save the universe. Sounds a bit geeky to be sure, but Cosmo Joe is a cute little action game with a few fun features.
The play area of Cosmo Joe is small, but players aim to rack up fuel, enemy kills and health before the rocket ship arrives to take Joe to the next level. There are even opportunities for combo bonuses if your galactic fighting skills are strong enough. Joe has a total of 14 different weapons he can use, but they aren’t all available at once. He might have weapons for firing or warp speed for running down enemies, but high scoring opportunities abound and span 50 different levels, each slightly more challenging than the next. Players must complete the level before they run out of fuel. (more...)
