    Gene Effect's review

    Published: 2013-01-17, by Peter Warrior.

    An awesome space exploration game

    • Infinite replayability
    • Awesome gameplay and physics
    • Great soundtrack and graphics
    • Secret stuff and additional puzzles
    • No lite or trial version
    • Kill'em-all players won't enjoy it at all.

    "Won't there be a zerg rush, right?"

    First off, it doesn't matter that you see caves and a starship on the screeshots, this isn't the millionth remake of Nemesis. Therefore, shoot'em-up gamers, begone.

    Indeed, this game is much more interesting than shooting at everything moving around. It's about exploration and mining, as you pilot a weak probing ship in its mission to gather resources and organic evidences, and map the area. This takes place on a planet called Kratoss (y'know, Nike's brother, we aren't talking about trainers) where an ancient alien civilization lived and grew yonder, so part of your mission will be to dig out and reactivate arcane technologies which will give you access to new zones and switch traps on as well. By the way, maps are gorgeous no matter how random they are, and all design is imbued with a fitting Starcraft-like feeling.

    In short, it's a maze-like side-scroller, designed to be played and enjoyed with care. There's hidden stuff and times when is better to hold your breath and time your tap with surgical precision. Music is awesome though you have to unlock it by the sweat of your brow; there's a plot you have to unfold step by step (oooh, the fate of mankind is surprisingly at stake) and an amazing set of stats of gameplay (why don't all games have this?) make of this game definitively a must, even when it isn't for everyone. Perhaps its worst flaw is the lack of a trial version.

    Love the graphics, love the gameplay. The UI for briefings, menus and such could use more flair and polish, but other than that - quite an enjoyable game

    Subtracting one star because levels can be confusing finding the last item needed to go on to next level, but graphics, control, sound... All top notch! We need more games like this on android, good work, devs! Also, thanks SO MUCH for having the price up front and not nickel and dimeing your players to death! Death to free-to-play(pay-to-win)! Edit: after a week I still love it just as much if n

    Loved the game! But I can see occasional graphic glitches on my Samsung Galaxy Nexus (wind graphic glitch and messed up spites when teleporting). I hope future updates will fix this! Otherwise its a great game, one of the best in its genre. EDIT: I get these graphic glitches even after I turn off Bloom effects.

    Beautifully atmospheric, a story with depth and intrigue, with exploration of wonderful ancient caverns to a mezmerizing soundtrack....need I say more?
