Horizon release version 1.0.2.145

December 26, 2015
v1.0.2.145

This year-end small update has some balance changes and a few fixes thanks to your feedback. We also want to wish you happy holidays! It's been great interacting with you for the past year and we hope to continue in 2016!

Changes:
- Fighters effectiveness in combat has been improved. They now begin with two attacks per round and gain a third one at higher levels.
- Starbases and planets will now get their turn to attack before most other units (their combat initiative was lowered).
- Conquered systems under assimilation or subjugation will no longer count toward 'reckless expansion' for the purposes of others demanding that you stop expanding.
- Effectiveness of the cloaking device has been improved. Cloaked ships will no longer lose "invisibility" when getting hit so long as they don't fire back or the cloaking device isn't damaged.

Fixes:
- The Kor'tahz missions final step will no longer cause a downgrade in relations if you are already allied with them.
- The survey system order will now allow you to cancel and set it back again on unexplored systems with only gas giants.
- Invasions with more than 2 billion troops will now calculate the correct strength for soldiers.

“One to keep an eye on, definitely.”
70 – Strategy Informer / Gamewatcher

“Best of all, the way Horizon handles technological progress is one of the most elegant I've seen in a grand strategy game.”
65 – IGN

“With the excellent foundation that has already been developed and the dedication that L3O is showing to their fans, it promises to be a true 4X classic in its own right.”
90 – Aesthetic Magazine Toronto

Acerca de este juego

Horizon is a turn-based space strategy game of galactic exploration and conquest in which you are in control of humanity’s destiny.

You will explore deep space, find new frontiers and discover alien artifacts hidden on long-abandoned planets. You will also learn more about the galaxy as you come into contact with ten other species, each with their own unique culture, history and schemes.

A fully interactive galaxy allows you to navigate open space between stars and planets. Patrol your borders and, when the need arises, defend your territory by engaging in ship-to-ship tactical combat. Develop new colonies and then watch them become galactic centers for trade, industry and science - and of course military bases, outposts and shipyards to build your battle ships. Push your empire to its limits and go beyond the known horizon!

As a veteran of space colonization games I can tell this one is rather good.

Its not the best but its a decent game and I had fun the 3 games I played. The difficulty is a bit steep (I lost even at easy) but this is not really a bad side.

It remembers me master of Orion 2 in many points (turn based space combat, simple ground battles). So if you liked the old school title you will like this one.

Only one con. The HUD is not very user friendly and you have to get used to it but aside that its a fair game for its price.

Nothing like I hoped or imagined.
Couldn't complete the 1st combat without using the Auto-complete function as there was no explanation of everything involved until after it was over.
Then it turned out to be too complex to be any fun for me.
Waste of my money.
Fortunately, it was on sale & only cost $7.49 today!

Positive:
Innovative (more realistic) way of handling research.
Ship design is rather good.
So far the game seems rather balanced.
There are some questlines to explore.

Neutral
Combat works, but it is not that special.

Negative:
Strange Diplomacy. People ask you to surrender after loosing every battle. People wage war with you and offer you to pay tribute while still waging war.
Graphics are not too good (altough this is not that important to me)
Biggest drawback: I have now played this game for 9 hours and I play on highest difficulty, still it feels rather easy.

For the current discounted price (7euro), this game is easely worth the money. For the normal price I'd be a bit more hesitant to recommend it, though not to the point that I'd leave a thumb down.

This is a fairly standard 4x game. The economy is less complex than the avarage, but I don't consider that a bad thing.
The research management is well done in this game. It introduces chance with the discovery of new tech, preventing you from looking at the end of a tech tree and ignoring all the tech before that when deciding which path to follow. Don't worry, you decide the priority on which tech should be refined, which is something I really enjoyed.

What I really disliked in this game is the controll scheme during tactical combat. It's inconsistent with that of the galaxy map or with any other game for that matter.

Now for the reason that made me hesitate to really recommend this game: I feel like there could be more do differentiate builts between the planets. What's there is mostly a differences of quality, not function. This leads to me making 1 or 2 production planets and put everything else on research first and money second. There are some unique bonusses that can appear on planets, but only one of those actually made me consider changing the build (by increasing the tourism more than the trade).
Other than that, the game can use some more polish, though it doesn't do bad there compared to most sci-fi 4x games. I haven't encountered any bugs in any case.

To conclude: not a great game, but not bad either.

This game reminds me a bit of armada 2526 and that's definetly not a bad thing.

this game isnt very good.

pros:
has neat ideas, i havent seen before, like tech tree. i guess?

didnt see any bugs.

cons:

whole game seems like a water version of a real game.

tech tree is great in terms of that every race has unquie techs, but mostly all bland, everything has a tech lvl 10 and then thats it. example all the weapons are pretty much the same, engines too, missles are a little different not enough to be that great though. there arent even techs to get new buildings.... and you cant really do much in the research field in terms of tweaking its really weird. and researching a tech doesnt lead to other techs or at least none that i saw or that made a diffence.

space combat is done terrible, you might as well always quick fight, at least its pretty accurate, and invasions are click when to start and click done after it figures out who won, very simple, and would be nice if it just quicked isntead fo watching 2 numbers count down towards zero...

diplomancy is average at best. but ai makes weird demands and they need to surrender when they are losing bad.

colony management is a joke, nothing really to build. money system is not there either.

ai will build colonies every where and have really weird mood swings

cant play with command points on or you can make like a max of 15 ships, its very hard to fight two weak enemies or even one in this game if you only have 15 ships. you are forced to build a starbase on every planet and star bases are very very weak. i maxed out every tech and guys with half my tech wouldnt have a problem against my starbase. and can only build one star base per planet, so with out ships you cant defend any of your planets.

can only make 4 ship designs of each size, and small size basicaly is a scout ship only so not sure why you need 4 designs of it.

basically every part of the game except the next turn button is in need of rework.

this game seems like the first game you would give someone who has never played a space game before. and i cant understand how anyone would like this game or give it a good review. seriously its bare bones and it seems like it was made in the 1980's. i would be ashamed of this game if i made it.

I only played for a short while, but the game is very menu heavy. It's not instinctive and the promo video is not particularly like the gameplay.

I know it's not a AAA game, but I guess I'm just used to simpler, pretty games.

Cons:
The graphics are really dated, the sound track is really dated, the tutorial is annoying, as in it makes you explore this probe, and as you go to board it, the advisor comes on and tells you Oops I forget to tell you you need to have this part installed, so you have to fly back to Earth to then add it, and the UI takes a lot of getting use to - not intuitive at all.

Positive:
The battle game play seems a lot better than Galactic Empires, and Endless space.

Overall, I wouldn't purchase this game again.

First, second, third try:
What am I supposed to do?

Fourth try:
Found where to enable tutorial, following a super long tutorial, accidentely closing it, getting ♥♥♥♥♥♥ off.

Fifth try:
Chose Kuntari, developing peacefully, biggest race declares war. Other races constantly demand systems, money, technologies. If you refuse, the become hostile. Got ripped off by the biggest race.

Sixth try:
Chose Kuntari again (they're pretty cute), developing peacefully, building colonies and fleet. Run out of money again and again. Created an alliance, biggest race declares a war, my entire fleet was destroyed by just one enemy colony, starting over.

Seventh try:
Disabled command points (or whatever those are called) not to have fleet limit. Guess whom I chose, building colonies all over the space not caring about the fleet. Everything goes fine. 1st place in expansion chart. Beginning developing fleet. Make an alliance with 3 races, so far so good. Random event occurs - choosing galaxy leader between neutral race and an ally. Voted for ally, everyone else votes for another race. I was prompted if I agree to recognise this race as a leader. Click "yes". A short movie is shown how everybody unified under my command (no ♥♥♥♥ing clue why), now we can... Just can. Do things. Open deplomacy screen - 8 races declared a war to me. Was fighting pretty good, started loosing one colony after another. Rage quit life.

I have absolutely no experience in strategies like that, just saying.

Pobre interfaz de usuario, jugabilidad un poco pesada y caótica derivado de lo anterior, traducción vergonzosa, artísticamente desfasado... Hay muchas ideas buenas en el juego, pero el conjunto no es bueno, si eres fan y coleccionista del género puedes darle una oportunidad, pero no es un imprescindible ni en sueños.

Do you like 4X civ games and like science fiction. If you said yes to both then this should be worth a look.

Don't expect to win on your first play through. Normal mode is very aggressive. The casual gamer will have to turn the difficulty down to learn the finer points of the game. Hardcore gamers should not have a problem with it.

The game offers a wide and varied customization of your colonies and ships. Tactically you will want to fight most battles manually one missle or laser blast at a time.

Horizon is a very in-depth game.
In the Sci-fi ship building planet dominiting type game i am not a fan of turn based i would much rather be in RTS.

With my preference aside this game is very well made i couldn't wait to wage war on the first peaceful race that was nearby.

Great job developers on releasing a solid game.

Take a good long look at the first screenshot in the Steam Store (after the video). You're looking at a picture drawn with 1999 software, and you will be staring at this fugly "galaxy" the whole time you play this game. Galaxies should be breathtaking and beautiful, not meh, and certainly not fugly. How is it even possible to make a galaxy look ugly? More importantly: how is it possible for a dev team to look at a fugly drawing of a galaxy and then decide to use it as the main background shot for your whole game?! Answer: that is the best that was available back in the late 90s and early 2000s, when they were creating this game. Don't be fooled by the video. Look at the screen shots.

Gameplay is meh, not terrible. You must learn the interface by trial and error because the help files suck. All of the mechanics are a bit clunky and not intuitive, not polished. Example: this is an empire-building game, so you have lots of planets. When planet X13Z or some other forgettable name gets attacked you must respond, but you don't get to remind yourself "OK, which one is that again" before you decide how to respond to the attack. You can't look at the map and see which system it is. You either remember the name or you don't. Now choose your tactical response from the list of choices while we keep the map hidden. X13's fate is in your hands, but you can't remember is that the planet you're building $20 billion worth of infrastructure or the one you haven't started working on yet. Please choose now: Flee or Engage. At least there is AutoSave if you pick the wrong choice. Oh wait. There's not. You just lost an hour and a half of gameplay because you forgot to hit save. That's just the way things were back in 2003.

It actually plays like an OK game if you embrace it like a family member who you simply have to get along with, but that hardly matters. This is a 2003 game trying to pass itself off as something new. No one buys a $30 Grand Strategy Space game these days expecting to stare at a 2D checkerboard and move cardboard cutouts of spaceships around while staring at a fugly drawing of a galaxy painted onto that 2D checkerboard. I was hoping for a game that would make me feel like I'm in outer space. Horizon fell short by a 2D parsec rendered in 680 X 1020 on a freaking CHECKERBOARD PLAYING FIELD.

tldr: 5/10. Clunky but playable 4x space game with some depth and challenge. Never crashed. Occasionally entertaining. Storyline alternates between engaging and lame. Profoundly weak graphics. Don't pay more than $10 for this, even if you're a fan of the 4x space genre. Minimum requirements include Windows XP, and that should tell you when this game was actually made. Decent choice if your computer was built when Britney Spears was shockingly new, otherwise get a game that was made after Windows 7.

[EDIT] I've played about 40 hours now, and it does get a little better. A lot of early stuff in the game is confusing and will point you in the wrong directions at first, but if you can get past that, there is a decent game here. If you get it on deep discount, you could do worse. Deep, complex, outdated gameplay.

Horizon es un 4x que ha tenido que competir con una hornada de lanzamientos que han inundado Steam de juegos de temática parecida recientemente, como Endless Space, GalCivIII, StarDrive2, Star Ruler 2, Predestination y otros más de cuyo nombre no me acuerdo. En un mercado tan saturado es difícil elegir a Horizon porque no cuenta con gráficos ni novedades que aportar que llamen la atención a los potenciales jugadores. Así que, ¿qué tiene este Horizon para darle una oportunidad?

Por un lado Horizon es un juego honesto, no engaña a nadie diciendo que innova o revoluciona el género. Es un juego sencillo, de gráficos que recuerdan a tiempos pasados y su aire es totalmente retro en comparación al resto de juegos mencionados arriba. Pero a veces innovar o destacar mucho en algo no es sinónimo de que sea un buen juego y si no sólo hace falta probar el Star Ruler 2 o el Star Drive 2 para darse cuenta que, aun siendo buenos juegos, pecan de algunos problemas que lastran la jugabilidad. Ambos juegos por ejemplo tienen un profundo sistema de diseño de naves pero, ¿de qué sirve poder personalizar ese diseño si luego el combate tiene deficiencias y es difícil apreciar qué ventajas se obtiene de ese tiempo invertido en el diseño? Esto ocurre especialmente con el Star Ruler 2, donde al final lo que cuenta es tener más potencia de fuego y deja por tanto el diseño como algo circunstancial. Tanta historia para nada.

Horizon coge un género muy trillado y sin complicarse aporta una jugabilidad muy dinámica, un juego sencillo y ameno de aprender que sólo pretende hacer pasar un buen rato a los jugadores. Su sistema de diseño de naves es muy sencillo en comparación al resto de juegos 4x pero su mayor ventaja es que esos diseños tienen una aplicación muy práctica en los combates a diferencia de otros 4x. Es decir, los diseños realmente tienen un impacto en el combate táctico porque las ventajas/desventajas de los componentes y el armamento usado es fácil de apreciar en la práctica del combate y eso hace que sea realmente interesante dedicarle unos minutos a mirar de conseguir los mejores diseños posibles, sin complicar el sistema lo indecible como hacen el Star Drive 2 y el Star Ruler 2. El poder ver bien lo que aporta cada diseño es lo que se agradece y demuestra que con bien poco se puede conseguir mejores resultados que dorando la píldora con miles de opciones y luego dejar su aplicación práctica con fuertes carencias.

Horizon no aporta nada nuevo, no tiene un sistema de diseño de naves revolucionario, ni un sistema diplomático o de gestión de planetas innovador como el Star Ruler 2 o un sistema de combate por turnos terrestre y/o de abordaje como el Star Drive 2. Todo lo que ofrece es algo ya muy trillado pero el resultado funciona, es divertido y lo suficientemente profundo como para dedicarle muchas horas. La IA es difícil, es un juego en general bastante difícil y a ratos muy frustrante ya que la diplomacia requiere mucho tacto si uno no quiere verse en problemas rápidamente. Hay que estar muy activo diplomáticamente haciendo muchas concesiones a todas las especies si se quiere mantener una posición neutral o alejada de una posible declaración de guerra.

La gestión planetaria es muy sencilla pero funciona bien. El sistema diplomático cuenta con lo habitual del género. El combate táctico por turnos me gusta mucho aunque son muchas las críticas que he visto sobre él. Es un combate que recuerda a viejas glorias, con una rejilla de movimiento y con una interface muy espartana con 4 o 5 comandos básicos y poco más pero lo importante es que funciona bien y permite ver con detalle las ventajas de los diseños de las naves, la aplicación práctica del armamento utilizado, etc. He pasado muchos mejores ratos con este sistema de combate que con el del Endless Space o el del Star Ruler 2 que son juegos de probado éxito y gozan de buena fama. Para gustos colores pero al menos jugando al Horizon comprendo los fallos de mis naves y sus ventajas en combate.

El apartado tecnológico seguramente es el más completo del juego por su profundidad en cuanto a campos de investigación. Se comienza con unas decenas repartidas en 6 campos clave y poco a poco se van ampliando con nuevas incorporaciones, complicando más las decisiones sobre qué investigar. Estas ventajas repercuten inmediatamente en el armamento ya instalado y el famoso retrofit se realiza automáticamente cuando las naves que quedan desfasadas se acoplan a una base espacial. En general todo funciona de una forma sencilla en el que el micromanejo siempre queda muy reducido y permite centrarse en las grandes decisiones.

Resumiendo, se trata de un juego que convence a aquellos que buscan un juego de estrategia donde no tengan que verse inundados con mucha carga de microgestión, como el Distant Worlds por ejemplo o el Aurora 4X y que permite pasárselo bien centrando el interés en la parte estratégica y disfrutando luego de los combates tácticos por turnos.

Una buena compra pues sobre todo si lo adquirís en oferta ya que su precio cercano a los 30 euros es un tanto excesivo y sería más razonable un precio alrededor de los 20 euros. Horizon no es el mejor 4x del mercado pero seguramente es de los pocos donde todo lo que hace lo hace bien y donde el jugador se lo pasará bien sin tener que estudiar guías interminables o invirtiendo gran cantidad de horas diseñando naves.

Me gusta este 4X por turnos.
Ofrece muchas posibilidades de actuación.
El sistema táctico (por turnos) es sencillo y no por ello menos complejo.
Cuesta un poco hacerse con la interfaz; pero si sigues el tutorial (lo recomiendo) ye haces con ella.

Un 4X liviano y sencillo de hacerse con el, aunque no tan sencillo de dominar. No sobresale en nada, pero tal vez al estar en castellano y ser relativamente "liviano" es apto para cualquier iniciado en el género. No aporta nada nuevo a lo ya existente, pero tampoco decepciona en lo que ofrece. Mi nota 7/10

Aunque no lo he jugado mucho, y hace tiempo que no juego, lo que he visto me ha gustado. Es asequible de jugar, entretenido, no decepciona, está en castellano y lo mejor es que siguen actualizando y equilibrando a pesar de haber transcurrido un año y medio del lanzamiento

El motor de juego de las batallas con naves es muy malo y gráficamnete peor. La historia se resume en que no hay historia, animaciones pocas y simples. El juego se acaba repetitivo y simple en la conquista. En resumen, menos mal que lo compre de oferta, sino me hubiera sentido super estafado, no perdais el tiempo.

Otro juego más del estilo 4X que no aporta nada. Es exactamente igual a jugar el Galactic Civs u otros similares con un interfaz mucho peor. No lo recomiendo en absoluto.
