The idea is really nice. It's just that it's very difficult to get the right setup. At higher levels you don't even get the chance to setup something correctly, you just bash as hard as you can to try to defeat the cheating AI. Just think of starting with a power of 1 versus 5, and this time it's not really strategy, because your just by yourself. A little traingled tank with a laser beam.

Interesting concept, poor execution. It seems like they couldn't make the AI intelligent enough on it's own, so they decided to just throw BS scenarios in to make it "hard". Also the controls feel pretty laggy. At times its fun, most of the time it's just "meh".

Not a bad puzzle/action game. Basically you move/shoot to color the balls/lines to control more land & spit out more abilities than the enemy. The game is very basic and also very short. I beat both episodes in about 2.5 hours.

Each level has different goal, kill the enemy, capture ground, get certain colors, or live X amount of time.

Overall, its ok for what it is. If you like simple action puzzle games, might be your cup of tea!

Vertex Dispenser is a game with a huge learning curve. It's deceptive in that it has the asthetics of a casual game but the gameplay of chess. If you love logic puzzles and playing relaxing games before bed, Vertex Dispenser is recommended.

A deceptively simple and graphically minimal game with chill electronic music, Vertex Dispenser is both fun and challenging - offering one part problem solving and one part competitive strategy. We greatly enjoyed the multiplayer vs. A.I. more than anything, though.

The main shortcoming is the extreme minimalism. The game could do with a bit of polish in its UI and graphics. Simple doesn't have to mean sloppy. Nevertheless, one of my favorites in the genre since the first Hexxagon.

I usually tell my friends that I like smart, innovative games. Now I realize I was wrong.
I commend the creator for doing something very different, and not trying to dumb down the mechanics. I am also completely overwhelmed by the sheer number of different abilities all mapped to separate keys and the boggling amount of information changing at an inhumanly quick pace. I feel like super advanced AI would love playing this game, but I am a mere human.

An intriguing concept! Definitely worth checking out.
Kind of like mixing Volfied with a moebius strip, added skills and color puzzles.
What the hell is that even? Well, see for yourself. It's fun. Although I do advise to wait for a sale, anything 50% or higher would do.

To me, this seemed to be less of a game and more of a manual graph problem solver. I'm not so sure I'll be playing this again.

One of very few games in the CRTS genre, its depth and complexity stem from mechanics reminiscent of a falling block puzzle game. It's up there among my absolute favorite games, I just wish it was more well-known.
