Про цю гру

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!

Чудова гра! Після того як ви дізнаєтесь назви найкращої зброї та обладнання космічного корабля і навчитеся швидко їх віднаходити, можна сміливо плювати на часове обмеження місії, та освоювати простори космосу аж доки там не залишиться жодної нерозвіданої планети та жодного не знищеного ворога .

As much as I want to like this game I can't. I enjoy the space opera, exploring, seeing new things but htis game just doesn't scratch that itch. Here's a brief breakdown.

PROS:
1) it's a short and sweet game. Want to blow a little time? Here you go
2) Easy to pick up, easy to 'master'
3) There's fun to be had! Explore space, meet new things, see how you do.

CONS:
1) It's -short-, as in after less than 3 hours I'm seeing nothing but repeats of things I've seen 3-4 times already
2) Combat is rather dull and straightforward, rarely get any chance to try any tactics
3) perhaps too easy to pick up and to master, I don't feel like there's anything below the surface I scratched 3 hrs in
4) Far too much of your score and your game seems entirely dependant on the RNG at universe creation

All in all I wouldn't reccomend it. I'd been watching it for a while and it looked up my alley but despite getting it with another bundle (so there's no buyer's regret, I bought the bundle for a different game) I'm still rather disappointed with how this turned out. I hope the creators go on to make a more interesting, expansive 'infinite space' type game.

This is a coffee break game in the old-school sense of the phrase. It's a turn-based "board game", with play sessions lasting from ten to thirty minutes, depending on whether you die early or play to the end.

Basically, you pick a "class", which determines your starting gear and the value of given items (Military players will want to collect weapons and tech, Scientists will want samples of alien lifeforms with a secondary emphasis on tech, and Pirates will focus on "treasures", mostly consisting of otherwise useless sulptures and shiny things).

The endgame score is equal parts skill and luck. You'll need to figure out what does what, and you'll need to be lucky enough to find things to do the things that do things. (Hint: Smash the Timeless Bauble and type "Nova Cannon" or "Hyperdrive", depending on which you don't have yet.)

Every so often, the game board will spawn with one of three "Major" random events. To beat these, you'll need to either look up a game guide, or try your hand at trial and error.

By the time you've got things figured out, you'll really only be playing this game to try to beat your last score. This is the primary charm of the game. "Oh neat! I found this really valuable thing really early on in the game! I sure do feel lucky!". The parts of the game that require skill are equally emotionally-rewarding. "Wow! I can't believe I vapourised an entire Urluquai armada!"

For $10, you really can't go wrong for something that'll always be in your library whenever you need to kill ten minutes. Time is money, especially in this game.

Kids from 90's might recognise this game well. Weird Worlds: Return to Infinite Space is a sequel game from Strange Adventures in Infinite Space (SAIS) as far I could remember due to zorg race showing up at main screen and gameplay as well seems very familar yet lot of improvement for its predecessor.

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.

That game can make the time you spend playing it fun and quite addictive. That was a unique experience playing that game. I liked it, the game has a fine graphic and good gameplay, the soundtrack is cool

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.

Weird Worlds: Return to Infinite Space falls somewhere between Civ 5 and FTL, incorporating diplomacy aspects and space battles. For the majority of the game, you will be flying to different star systems, picking up valuable items, specimens, ship parts, or ambassadors to bring back to your homeworld in the Glory system. The combat can be pretty interesting when you manage to get good upgrades and recruit multiple pilots for your flotilla, but it's usually best to avoid confrontation in the beginning.

Unfortunately, all of the events and alien races can be seen in about 20 playthroughs on the "long" setting, and the long setting itself seems too short. This game would be far better if it had much more content and even longer playtimes, and I can't help but feel it would be more fun to continue upgrading your ships and battling for much longer instead of having to return back to your planet.

If you like games that have some depth yet allow you to sit back and relax whileplaying, Weird Worlds might be right up your alley.

I feel like I'm just doing random stuff and I have no use in the game. You can change your ships parts, but the descriptions are pretty useless and there are no stats. Mechanics are not explained well. I want to like this game, but I don't.

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.

Well it’s not a bad game if you’ll get it for free in a bundle or sth. It’s short, easy, fun to kill time and to play from time to time, but If you want to play something with strategic background or just want a game that you will not leave for ever after 3 hours of playing it’s not for you. This game is not worth money. It has some nice ideas but it’s very repetitive and actually there is not much to do in it. Unfortunately Flash Trek: Broken Mirror is a lot better game than this one: it’s longer, more strategic, and you have more to do there (even building stations and start your own empire) and it’s free. Weird worlds is random, what is good but boring after a while because you have nothing to do here.

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
