Explore and Survive...
To summarize, you crash-land on some planet, and you look for other survivors. A simple concept makes a great game! Though, there were some minor problems that made the gameplay a bit rough. I'll begin with the better aspects:
- Storyline is better than other games (meaning you'll want to read what the soldiers say
- Game mechanics (such as health, etc.)
- Enemy A.I., not too insane, but challenging
- Though not necessary, the point system
I didn't play the game for too long, so I don't know if the enemies get way harder. I made it to the outside levels and farther.
- Control scheme
- Somewhat repetitive music
The control scheme didn't suit me at all. I myself found it frustrating to press the spacebar to jump than to just press the up arrow key. I found it confusing and would sometimes bomb myself, or accidentally talk to a soldier. The music is okay, but to me, it became boring after a while. I'm glad I can mute it.
This is a game that could use some polishing, but I enjoy everything else about it. It compels me to finish the game. One last thing that would really make me play is if you ask for medals. I would make sure to finish playing should medals be installed. Great game, overall.
