Reviewing this after I finally beat it. This is a very difficult resource management game. Beginning tips for players: 1. Conserve your fuel. Think small, jump small, mine/probe small, and always have a reserve. HE gives you more fuel than H - keep that in mind. 2. Switch ships often where it makes sense. Be aware that not all ships use HE and H for fuel. 3. The Omega element you receive from aliens can be applied to any repair or category of resource. Great game. I wish there was a little more customization with the ships though, eg choosing your starting ship.
Solid resource management mechanic, a lot of depth and replayability. Great music and graphics too! All in all, very enjoyable game. Love it! *** Only complaint, there's no personal high score screen. So if I forgot to take a screenshot when I finished the game I won't have access to my best stats. Keeping in mind that there ARE a lot of stats, this is weird.
Not worth $5. Compared to the quality of cheaper or free games. The randomness of doing well and then suddenly being totally screwed is really annoying and overly frequent. Like saying "roll these dice. 1-9 and you lose instantly. 10-12 and you get to roll again." Not very entertaining when you realize it.
Recommended for Carbon Based Lifeforms! They should fix the popcorn noise at the end of each selection. They could also add a hard mode and a Omega Mode as well (Extremely Hard) [Same applies for Pc] and finally... a crafting interface for creating new technology!
A very nice and original game. Very difficult mainly because it is strongly luck-oriented. If you're unlucky, you simply have no chance. But there are mechanics that you can learn and master and that helps a lot. Overall quite fun. Not for that long, but the game has its own enticing way of keeping the player invested.
This game is a little (Great) gem. It deserves an award if it hasn't one already... Clever mechanics and great conceptual ideas make for an intriguing space exploration adventure. I watched a couple of YouTube clips for some tips as I kept losing initially and not getting very far (for fuel!). This helped and I have been having enjoying it thoroughly. There is lots of replayabilty once you get past the Initial frustrationsof managing your resources. Great game Dev's... X
