Do not be deceived into thinking that simulations of the space variety are any different from the likes of the SimCity series. The fundamental aim of the game is the same – to use your management and financial skills to the best of your abilities. Among these so called ‘space simulators’ is the X series. Consisting of X Beyond The Frontier and X Tension, X Gold gives fans of the genre exactly what they want – both games wrapped into one handy little package.

After a disaster in space, involving your own spacecraft, you find yourself waking to an unseen location. Soon after regaining your orientation, you come across a profit hungry alien race. After succumbing to the knowledge of not knowing your whereabouts, you are advised on how to make a living in your new temporary home. As well as managing the currency, Credits, you must also use unconventional methods to obtain and sell ships. Your master plan is to capture the best ship you can find, and get yourself back to your home planet – Earth. Each ship has its own unique handling abilities, so if the ship isn’t up to scratch, sell it.

The two games bundled together will keep those of you eager enough to play, going for a long time.
