Scavenger

CNET Editors' review

Scavenger is a fun and challenging game in which players must pilot a spacecraft through the Star Hulk Icarus, dodging bullets, collecting treasure, and locating orbs that can open the way out. The game's quality graphics and unintuitive (in a good way) controls made it hard for us to pull ourselves away.

One of the most challenging things about Scavenger is the way that users control their spacecraft. Rather than piloting the craft directly, users must use the mouse to move a cursor, which the craft follows. This is harder than it sounds, especially when you're trying to move quickly and also use the right mouse button to fire at enemies. Our piloting skills improved with practice, but this feature definitely made the game tougher. Fortunately, it starts out gently, offering plenty of opportunities for users to get used to the controls and the various bonuses and hazards that will be encountered throughout the game. Sure, there are treasures to collect and gun turrets to blow up, but what about the power stations, door openers, and other novelties? A brief "How to Play" screen explains the game's basic controls, but it's only through playing it that users will come to learn how everything works. We found the game exciting, with new challenges awaiting us at every level. People who enjoy space-themed adventures and the opportunity to shoot at things will likely find hours of enjoyment in this game.

Scavenger has a 60-minute trial period. It installs and uninstalls without issues. We recommend this program to all users.
