Lodestar is an interesting combination of Pong, Space Invaders, collector game, Lander, and aim & shoot type of game separated in different level-sections, all wrapped up in a single story. The game features excellent original music and average graphics. The game design is somewhat lacking. First, the graphical design leaves much space for improvements. Second, the gamplay is not quite well balance making most stages too easy, and the entire game is rather short.
The strongest sides of the game are its developing story and changing gameplay, with every new section of the game being a new challenge and a surprise when played for the first time.
Overall, the game leaves the impression of above average qualities, but below average polishing.
