Default Game Impressions

Here is my review.

This seemingly complex space game basically boiled down to a couple tasks.

1. Breeding aliens. It takes time to incubate and coins or dark matter to get new traits. You start off with 2 incubators but you can get more with dark matter.

2. Conquer planets. Takes a few minutes but you can speed it up with dark matter, which you can earn in the Harvest Mineral mini game. This will earn you XP to level up, which in turn unlocks more alien outcasts and planets.

The good. The alien outcasts are cute. Soothing background music.

The bad. Navigating around the game takes some time to get used to. Also there is no sound effect when you complete a task.

You will get many hours of enjoyment if breeding space aliens is in your calling.

Though I'm not a fan of critter raising games, this one is not bad. Let's see...

The aliens are pretty cute, though they are not completely unique, just different eyes, shapes and colors. For an indie game, I think that's more than enough anyway. but it should be fun to have hidden unlockable species that look nothing alike the normal guys.

The minigame is okay. Maybe a few more to spice things up?

Right now I like it, but dunno if it would stay on my device for long.

Default Thumbs Up

First of all, very soothing soundtrack. That alone sold me out. But then, from concept to the mechanics of the game is amazing. You breed aliens on your ship, invade planets, etc.
Its super fun and because of its soothing soundtrack, its my game of choice after work.

Thanks for your recommend. I'll try it, although I'm not a fan of this kind of game.

Default Review

Graphics: Basic but nice. The aliens are cute but a few more animations would be nice.

Sound: The music fits the game well. A few more sound effects would be nice. Another idea would be to add different music for different screens.

Control: Solid and intuitive

Game mechanics: The game seems simple on the outsides but it's actually quite deep. There's a lot of different elements to the game including creature raising, planet capturing, and managing resources.

Comments: This game could be more approachable. The game objectives aren't obvious and could be better explained. Maybe create a couple game play videos that walk you through the game.

My review as dreadnok US store

I'm torn by this game, on one hand the relaxing music, cute characters and unique gameplay makes me really like it, on the other hand it's not the easiest game to get into and the unique style might actually turn some people off.

It's kind of a my pet monster game with the ability to capture other planets as well. It's honestly not bad it's just hard to put my finger on it in terms of how it makes me feel

Maybe try it and see how you feel about it yourself

how I give out stars
1) easy to pick up and play
2) good graphics and sound
3) fun to play
4) gets a physical reaction like laughter or surprise.
The last star I reserve for games that do something I've never seen before

Default mini review

Here's my mini-review:

This is a pretty fun casual critter raising game. As mentioned before the music is relaxing and matches the mood of the game. There isn't really a sense of tension so you can play it leisurely. The amount to options and breeding combination adds great depth to the game. It's needs a bit more instruction because it's a bit confusing from the start. I think the game mechanics are solid but it could use some polishing (appearance & sound). Overall it's a good play and worth a try.
