Over dit spel

Weird Worlds: Return to Infinite Space is a hybrid roguelike game of space exploration, adventure and starship combat set within a peculiar as-yet-unvisited region of the galaxy known as the Purple Void. Each time you play the game, a new and different "instant space opera" is generated at random; from locations of stars and nebulae to plot-twisting quest events, nothing stays the same.


But unlike other games of its kind that go on for dozens of hours, Weird Worlds: Return to Infinite Space plays to its conclusion in less than thirty minutes - it's the perfect lunch break game! Features also include a fully animated star map, a unique turn-based movement system, real-time starship battles, award-winning music and sound, and a robust battle simulator. Weird Worlds also has built-in support for community-created mods that can change anything and everything in the game!

Eh.

This is a fun and cute little game but it just doesn't quite hit the mark.

It's fun for a while but it has major balance issues. I played on the easiest difficulty level and never won a battle, not a single one.

It's fun and clever and I'm glad I played it. But there just isn't enough there.

Big replay value on this one! You can easily beat game in half hour but then go back and see new stuff and try different ways to explore space and handle meetings with alien races. Simple and fun.

This is a dungeon crawler in space and with a spaceship instead of a hero. Sadly this game is managing the visual and overall presentation of itself much worse than "faster than light" or "endless space 3" wich are both essentially the same game but much better. I still recommend this game for people enjoying dungeon crawlers or space games.

Not half bad for a FTL-like game but the combat isn't any fun. Not half bad though.

A simple, fun, quick (10-30 minute) SF exploration, trading and combat game. The release date is misleading (that's the Steam availabilty date) since it's a 2005 game (keep that in mind when you notice there's no mouse-wheel zooming). Dozens of weapons, engines and other interchangeable ship components along with mostly useless cargo/artifacts (some have significant effects). You can increase the size of your fleet by recruiting a few alien ships (possibly also increasing cargo capacity and component slots). There are a few infrequent game altering random events (spoilers not included).

Both my description and the screenshots make the game seem more complex than it actually is. You quickly realize the mechanics are pretty simple but after a bit more play find it's not quite as simple as first impressions suggest (I'd even say elegantly simple).

The only technical problem I've come across is with 1920x1080 resolution on my 1080p laptop (graphics flicker). I have to play it at 720p (or lower?) res to make it work.

I've played this one on and off since it was an indie GOTY nominee (from the era of "Darwinia") and still enjoy it. Worth the asking $10 but buy it on sale (like my frugal ♥♥♥ would).

I find that this game is absolutely brilliant. If you like ftl but are more inclined towards controlling more than one ship at one time, this is a must play. In this game you are given a certain amount of time that you can use. Each journey (to a different solar system) takes a certain amount of time. You have to get as many points before this time ends by getting more ships, getting artifacts, etc.

pros:
- Fun, addictive gameplay
- Easy to learn, hard to master
- Variety of weapons, thrusters, drives and other systems.
- Tense combat, as you know you might explode any second because of a secret cloaked enemy :D
- Simulation mode (basically sandbox), this is where you can choose any ships from any race and make them fight eachother.

Cons:
- Lots of text, if you don't like reading this is not for you.
- Ends too quickly, you lose points if you go past the timer.
- Some elements of the game are quite confusing to new players (This is why I reccomend not skipping the tutorial like I did)

Although I recommend this game. I don't recommend buying it. I got it in a giveway.

In short, a great little time-waster that, if you want to kill 15-20 minutes, is perfect. However, after playing a few hours of it in one session, it does get a tad repetitive. The combat is very tough if you don't have much equipment. I made that mistake by trying to tackle a corvette (medium class ship) alone. I died in 10 seconds flat...
Aside from the quite tough combat, the general gameplay is enjoyable, with 3 different ships to start with and you can make your own fleet whilst on your travels. There's also a combat training bit where you pick which ships you want to control, have an alliance with or fight against. Good job Digital Eel :)
7.5/10

An Overlook, and Your Money.

Let me start by saying the game is great, overall. Its nothing too amazing, but a great game none the less. Its gameplay is randomly generating thus giving the plaer an indefinite replay value, so it can be easy to get your moneys worth out of this game if its your thing. But speaking of the price, its 10$ and thats pretty on edge of how much its worth through my experience. I got it for free in a giveaway myself, and its a great game, but I'd say its more around worth 5$, if its on sale buy thing game, if its not: invest into taking some more ime to see if its your cup of tea.

The Gameplay:
On to the gameplay, theres alot to say and to keep it short I'll say this:
The gameplay is a solid 8.5/10, its a randomly generated fun adventure full of things to explore. The mechanic of having to return after 30 years in-game is a unique and brilliant touch to a game of this genre. It gives you an almost arcade like feel of constantly trying to get a new highscore, its simply addicting and fun so see what you can get. Playing this game blind will make your experience ALOT better too, playing it blind will make the game so intresting to discover things, I know from experience there will be many occasions you thought youve seen everything, but suddenly a brand new ship, race, battle, etc. comes up. If these thigns sound appealing to you, look into this game more, its a really great relaxing time waster. (and I almost forgot to mention: its got quite the FTL like feel to it, but with a wide range of completely new, different mechanics.)

TL;DR
TL;DR: The games pretty good. Is it worth 10$? That depends on your likings because 10$ is the maximum price the game could be worth, if the game is on sale you should totally buy it. It's a well-made, rouge, never ending, suprising, random, curious, almost FTL-like experience that will leave you addicted to getting a higher score or explore more each time.

Fun game if you have some free time to spare.It reminds me of FTL(Faster than Light),with the only difference being in combat and strategy.In this game, you wander around the galaxy looking for different items ,where you can trade them for other items you need.You also find mercenaries who can also become your allies and aid you in battle.Only thing that bothers me is the battle system,a little bit complicated but still its fun to wander around the galaxy(as if you owned the place lol) and make your own adventure.Another negative is,if you play for long enough,the game gets a bit repetitive and you might get bored.My final score for Weird Worlds:Return to infinite space is 7/10

Neat little game for some quick play - only thing I would downgrade it for is the "upgrades" you find are not clearly explained so it's hard to figure out if it's better than what you already have or not.

Weird worlds is a fun little and quick game for your free time,

You have a mission to explore the galaxy and gather as much rare items as you can, also to meet new races to trade attack or become friend with them, the game randomly generates stars, items and events but all the fun is on having the right item at the right time to see a new event.
In the end if you don't die you will have to retire because of the time limit similar to sid meier's pirates.

note: most easy events to found will be repeated to you

The price is too hight for such small game, so i recommend to get it only at discount.

Pretty nice little gem! I would give it 9/10 and bought it at full price! One game can last a maximum of one hour and is interesting every single time (especially when we add all the mods avaiable on the game's website). Totally recommended to all my working friends :)

Spent 20 min getting a bunch of stuff that I had no idea what they did, but they were all high level, ran into a guy, didn't tell me anything about him, and he blew me up in 5 seconds. No life indicator let me know nothing about how well I was doing nor was he. You move super slow in combat and there is no way to avoid and shoot. You just try and move and get shot while moving in a direction. The combat sucks and there is 0 player control during it. Waste of 20 min, no wonder it has been given away for free and has bad steam reviews.

I've not played much, but from what I have played, yes it is interesting and can be fun, but I think it would not be worth $10. I got this for free via a giveaway but unless you can do the same or get it when it's really cheap on sale, I don't recommend it.

In a way the game felt mindless to me. Click here to this area, fight, click here etc. It dosen't exactly tell you how to play, and gets more confusing as the game goes on. The game is unineresting.
