You say the AI are "aggressive"and "unforgiving", but it seems I spend more time chasing after them than anything else.

absolutely aweso ... WTF, it´s 4:30 in the morning! aaaaargh!

Gj :D

This does have appeal due to the unique art style and immersive sounds, but still falls into the same trap that many games of this type do which is becoming difficult quickly (ex. lvl 28) and somewhat repetitive. That said it does retain interest way longer the most, if not all games like it.

i'm f****ing CRYING after that ending you get five.

Man < Reapers < Reapers' Auntie

This game is simple and beautiful. The "story" was funny after the Reapers showed up, IMO. I fucked up so badly, I damned everyone else. And the reapers weren't as easy. They'd actually regroup or leave a colony if opposition was too fierce. However, if the pursuit of them was too strong, they'd gain control by hitting weaker, unguarded colonies. It was great.

One gripe though; The mission when they first appear, I destroyed all opposition without claiming the Halo Rings. I couldn't progress without it. I felt shafted. Forced to deal that that nightmare.

The game overall is worth a five. it's simplicity allowed for beautiful visuals and sounds to be created while still presenting a challenge. If I gave you any less, it would be because of butthurt for having to deal the Reapers.
