Awesome idea, but even right from the tutorial I can tell you - The controls are horrendous. Use another method to change the cells selected; having the mouse select AND change the cells feels awful in a way I'm having trouble describing.
This game has EA syndrome. It suffers from catch-up, when the computer is far behind, they will get favorable rolls in order to make the game "exciting." I've been playing this game for years with real dice, and complete blowouts are quite common, while a come-from-behind is not, and this game would have you thinking otherwise. Good, but needs to stop cheating in order to supposedly make the game fun. 3/5
I'm with Jonahx. Not much challenge when you can literally run THROUGH everything except a boss mob and only cause minimal Armor damage. Would have been a decent game otherwise, but you kinda ruined it with that.
This game automatically gets a 3/5 for me, because they finally allowed the controls to be redefined! Most Nitrome games I've ever played suffer from the same problem - Terrible control assignment. Thank you for finally making one where I get to choose the controls.
It'd be nice to know how or why things are happening the way they are. First I can use my Terraform ability anywhere I please, then all of a sudden I can't use it anywhere. The opposing tribe across the way is creating encampments and fortifications like walls, where all my tribe is doing are making crappy little houses, and there's nothing here explaining why. If this is Populous, it's shit.
This series will continue to get the lowest rankings possible from me until customizable controls are added. There's a reason the D-pad on just about every controller ever made was placed on the left side.
Poor game. The enemies come in extremely predictable waves, which are lined so that all you have to do is window-wash the screen with the mouse button held down. Ammo appears exactly when you run out, so you can waste as much as you want. The graphical style is weak, figures are poorly-drawn and there is no attempt to blend or shade anything at all. 1/5
No idea what you people are talking about with ad-blockers. I've got an adblocker, and every Nitrome game I've ever played works just fine. I think in all likelihood, you just don't have a damn clue what you're doing.
