***** EDIT *****
Someone pointed out that the "pointer error" bug was fixed w/ the last patch. The announcement for the patch claimed it was. However...the bug STILL exists and it is in fact, an actual GAME BREAKING bug.
See this report from another player: http://steamcommunity.com/app/232050/discussions/0/540740500665480910/
In addition, the patch introduced yet another game breaking bug (the "0 hp bug"). See this thread:http://steamcommunity.com/app/232050/discussions/0/540740500975024315/
So my review stands. The game is NOT in a playable state for a great number of players...so new buyers will be taking a risk that the game will not work for them. The game hasn't worked for me in over a year due to that one error (described in the original review below).
===== BUYER BEWARE =====
The game's premise is cool. The graphics are fine. The play mechanics are interesting and fun. The problem? The dev simply REFUSES to fix year old bugs that prevent a signifiant portion of players from playing the game.
For a large percentage of players...this game is simply unplayable. There numerous threads about this bug (the "pointer error") and many more posts about it.
Either the devs are inexperienced at debugging and proper coding or they simply do not care that many players cannot play the game they paid for. Either way, it is highly problematic for the customer as the result is a non-functioning game.
BUYER BEWARE. Spending money on this game runs the risk of resulting in the game becoming a virtual coaster, nothing more.
Here's a link to the reported error: http://steamcommunity.com/app/232050/discussions/1/810923021679670190/
There are several other threads doing the same, and even more posts (in different threads) reporting the same error (which has existed for over a year now). Simply search for "pointer" and you'll find numerous players who simply cannot play the game as a result of it.
