Skyward Collapse truly reinvents the god game (review)
18 July 2013
Conclusion: Skyward Collapse is about balance but not just in the sense of your ability to keep two sides from murdering one another. Skyward Collapse is also about finding equilibrium in the downward spiral of chaos in a world that you can only influence and not control.
Pros: Skyward Collapse offers a unique twist on a stagnant genre God games, traditionally, have been mostly concerned with direct intervention, such as meticulously shaping terrain to suit followers’ needs or using powers to initiate miracles to the advantage of believers over non-believers. Skyward Co...
Cons: The user interface is stingy with details I need to keep track of many numbers in Skyward Collapse. Raw resources and finished goods accumulate in a panel on the left-hand side of the screen. For some of these, a particular faction can share them globally between all of its town centers. For othe...
Summary: Have you ever wanted to play a turn based strategy game against yourself, without directly controlling the units? Have you ever wanted to perpetuate a war without ever letting one side truly dominate the other? Have you ever wondered who would win in a fist fight between Thor and Zeus?
Excerpt: Humans have always been a warring race. Whenever two different nations have met it has always ended in a bloodshed. We all enjoy games where you build up massive armies and obliterate the opposing faction to the Stone Age.
Pros: Replay Value, Accomplishment Feeling, One More Turn
Skyward Collapse Review | Indie God Game Strikes A Brilliant Balance
9 December 2013
Conclusion: The Short Version: Skyward Collapse presents a killer twist on the standard God Game formula. If the novel premise grabs you, expect an inordinate amount of randomised replayability for a paltry four quid.
Pros: Revolutionary new perspective, Strong turn-based mechanics, surprisingly helpful tutorial, Practically limitless replayability, each playthrough is totally unpredictable
Cons: Ugly GUI has substance but no style, Can be very brutally tough and occasionally confusing despite reasonable tutorial, A little rough around the edges (but costs £3.99, remember)
Conclusion: Skyward Collapse a un concept intéressant et vraiment rafraîchissant dans un genre qui a tendance à tourner en rond. Cependant, on en vient bien vite à agiter un poing rageur en menaçant les cieux devant la difficulté extrême du titre.
Pros: Un concept rafraîchissant
, Une durée de vie assez longue si tant est qu'on persévère
, Un univers simple mais sympathique
, Une torture discount : 5 euros
Cons: On en vient vite à pleurer de rage devant la difficulté de la tâche
, Le manque de différents modes de jeu et de factions
