Smash Up

If you like the card game you will probaly like this game as well. It is a great “port” and the artwork is beautiful as always. I really hope the developers keep adding expansions. At the moment only the base game and awesome level 9000 are included. Please give me my sharknado!

The AI is pretty good and can be quite challenging to everyone but really experienced players. But it is of course way more fun to play other people and I hope this game grows so you can just queue up for a game.

If a developer randomly reads this I have some suggestions for UI improvements:

Smash Up is an excellent card game, and the digital version is fun, but imperfect. The bot AI strikes a nice balance between competence and efficiency, leading to challenging but not impossible games without the frustrating wait times for AI pondering that some other games suffer from.

The UI design prioritizes streamlined gameplay over clarity, so it takes some getting used to to understand what’s going on. It also is not a 100% bug-free game. Both of these issues are manageable, but definitely take some getting used to… don’t turn off the Proceed button, make sure to check the log if something happens you don’t understand, keep an eye on the scrolling text at the bottom of the screen, quit+save+restart+continue if a technical glitch occurs, and if all else fails, ask for help in the forums.

Mainly writing this because I disagree with what the majority of the negative reviews are saying, as someone who cranked out 40 hours of gameplay (split quite evenly between online and offline play) and who completed games on the hardest difficulty level. While I have ideas on what should contribute to a negative review, which will come later in the review, but let’s start by tackling the points I disagree with in the negative reviews.

I believe RNG gets the majority of the blame because a random event occurs at the beginning of every turn, and at every new planet, so it’s pretty much in your face all the time.

This game has the potential to be very fun. Myself and a few friends brought it and really enjoyed the game initially. But we quickly realised that this game is too hard, and not even hard in way that challenges you properly. We have been playing on mild difficulty, since the upper difficulty was seemingly impossilbe.

The game is hard beyond the player’s control, since much of the game mechanics are the result RNG. 90% of the RNG is bad! You receive negative effects that can see you wiped out very quickly. For example, we upgraded our shields to the max very early on, but in response, we started taking much more damage from RNG events.

Dark Cards

Dark Cards

The other games by these devs are underappreciated gems, particularly Dark Mist, but also the better known Blood Card, both of which are fantastic. In this case, however, the devs have missed the mark, badly.

It’s worth noting up front that Dark Cards at this point is essentially abandonware… which is a good thing, in my opinion. Get the message that your game isn’t working, ask Steam to withdraw the game from sale, write this game off to experience and move on with your lives. Continuous microimprovements really aren’t going to be enough to make this game any better without breaking the entire thing down and starting again from scratch.

I would not recommend the game in its current state.

The game’s idea is fun and all but at this point it feels like an unfinished product. This game requires a lot of polish to become a good game. the animations aren’t that smooth and feel a bit laggy, which can be seen in the few examples in the store page. I also encountered two bugs which broke the game and stopped it from responding to alt-F4 in my 30 mins of play time. Nevertheless I still believe in its potential so I will leave my review positive for now.

Planetary Control!

This is a great game. Ignoring for the moment all the nostalgia feels you get playing a game set in the SotS-verse. (I do. love the original Sots Soo much), The rules are easy to pick up, and the cards are balanced enough that there is no single-win-solution. You can play MP, or Solo against AI players. I highly recommend this as a fun, lightweight game that has a lightweight price to make it easy to sucker potential conquests encourage friends to pick up for weekend gaming.

The game has some polishing to do - things are a little tricky to figure out at first; there’s too much text on some screens; and I like the retro vibes from the art style, but not all the cards have unique art at this point. Once you past the initial lack of clarity though, it’s interesting and unique gameplay. The card effects are simple yet the strategy is intricate, and the deck manipulation aspect is something I haven’t experienced before - l have to think about every play, as opposed to some rogue-like deckbuilders where I often feel I’m on autopilot. I tried it on Steam Link too, and it transfers nicely to mobile. I look forward to seeing what comes of it.

An unusual take on god games. I think you need to have your tinfoil hat stapled to your head, because it is conspiracy theory central. Medicine often decreases health. Providing a clean water supply often drops population. Wild animals periodically group together to attack the human population, and aliens are insistently trying to colonise Earth every couple of years. In short, this is a game written by some folks who just aren’t taking their meds. This game is also quite cheap, and gameplay is compulsive, with everything being a constant jumble of off-setting variables against a random card draw mechanic. There is no guide to the combat system, which is also hilariously cumbersome, and you will probably wind up fighting aliens with bows and arrows at some point. Get ready to march humanity to extinction… because you are the Logos.

This game is awesome! I really like this fresh and new take on the strategy game format.

The game is very complex, and highly addictive.

You play as a godlike entity (the “main logos”) of the Earth, and your goal is to help mankind thru history.

There’s a good spiritual message in the game, that you should care about one another,

take care of the environment, look things in another perspective, and make hard, sometimes questionable decisions for the greater good. It’s not easy, you need to pay attention to a lot of variables (population, echology, etc.) otherwise you will fail very quickly.

Planet Stronghold: Colonial Defense

Planet Stronghold: Colonial Defense

First of all this game is a pretty unique mix, it has some flaws yes, but its strengths definitely outweighs them.

The card game, while unusual for such a game is actually really good. Compared to the standart rpg fights in similar games where you have 3 or 4 different spells or attacks and you just have to see which type of elemental damage does the most harm and spam that and throw in a heal or stun from time to time, the card battles feel more challenging. On the highest difficulty level you actually have to think about which cards suit in which situation. Also it kinda suits the theme. While in fantasy settings I prefer the party of heroes wandering around fighting its battles itself, here it feels more like you are the base commander managing troops and resources of your colony and thinking strategically.

One of the worst Winter Wolves' games out of the ones I have played. It has very few redeeming qualities and while I usually like WW games despite their flaws, I had a hard time enjoying this one.


Unfortunately, the characters were very weak in this game. WW can create some interesting characters and I know this, but in this case, I think they missed the opportunity to do so. The good news is that there are many characters you can choose to romance (with the free DLC). The bad news is that the characters felt shallow and unrealistic. I know you don’t play these games for their realism, but one would expect them to at least have some common sense. Instead it seemed like they were doing the most irrational things. For example at some point

! the rebel guy implied that he has assassinated people. Why would he admit that in front of people who are military officers? It makes no sense.

A grudging thumbs up. It uses the same engine as the other Pixel Puzzles games since Ultimate, with the same flaws - dumps all unplaced pieces when you leave the game, problems picking from the “pond”, pieces don’t stick together but only in place - and the selection of free packs is a bit sparse; but it’s puzzles, about every month they throw a freebie at you, and the pictures are nice.

I downloaded this game and another jigsaw game on the day of release. I did not expect to like this game because the images are all paintings whereas I prefer photographs. When I started I could not find any option to autosort the border pieces or turn all the pieces the right way up. The other game had all these things.

However I’ve only played the other came for a couple of hours and I have genuinely played this for twenty-seven. Once I started I reasoned that a real jigsaw does not have these aids and I got stuck in. So far I have completed just one of the free puzzles, half of a Flash puzzle that timed out on me and half of the current Flash puzzle and I am really enjoying it.
