, terraformers is a very nicely put together game, albeit that it's length
and style of puzles make it closer to an extended tech demo (find my
comments on the terraformers homepage).
One reason why i reguard the game as so easy is that each zone is layed out
precisely the same way, like a doughnut with a computer station at the north
and south end and a computer part at the east and west, with some kind of
challenge which is repeated so that you get it whether you go round clock
wise or anticlockwise. Thus, there is a set of three tone wheels before the
glass bridge on the west side, and another set afterwards on the north west
edge before you get to the north end of the mines, ---- check your
coordinates and room descriptions and you'll see what I mean.
I did rather hope that the people at pin interactive would use the game
engine to have someting more complex and mazelike, which felt less of a
demonstration and more of a game. They did say they were working on a new
business model, ---- but that was in 2008, so what may be happening with
future plans i don't know.
Beware the Grue!
