Reviews

“Some games nearly make me miss my subway stop. Some games tempt me to keep on playing them while I'm walking down the street. This is one of them.”
Kotaku

“Rymdkapsel makes its more ornate competitors feel needlessly garnished.”
New York Times

“The game punishes the greedy, and rewards the prudent. If you’re attentive, you’ll notice that there’s actually a happy medium between the two: optimal efficiency.”
WIRED

Ein lustiges kleines Strategie Spiel in Tetris Optik das auf den ersten blick einfacher wirkt als es ist aber durch die immer schneller nachkommenden Gegner wellen und die immer größere Knappheit an Ressourcen wird das spiel mit Minute zu Minute schwieriger …
Für jeden der Indie und Strategie Spiele mag eine echte empfehlung.

Rydmkapsel is like an isometric Tetris where you have to lay down blocks. But the twist here is that these blocks are populated by... well, I'm not sure what they are, but they look like rectangles. Each block has a function, so you have a block for defense, for harvesting, for gardens, for cooking and a few more. You have to combine all of these blocks together to create a living world where the main goal is to explore and survive. You can't build a straight road unless you're lucky because each time you construct something a random shape is generated so you have to work with what you get.

At the bottom of the screen you'll see a bar filling up. Once it's full enemies will attack. It starts with 2 enemies that can easily be defeated, but once the wave is over, the bar will refill and new enemies will arrive. The longer you survive the faster the bar fills up and the more enemies will appear. It can get very hectic, especially if your workers can't get to their battle station in time or if you have too few people left to defend it all.

And that's where the exploration part kicks in. There are monoliths to be discovered that can positively alter stuff. Like, for example, making your workers move faster. These seem essential the further you get and it's recommended that you discover and analyze them as soon as possible. There are also multiple objectives to complete, but at the moment for me it's not entirely clear why they're exactly there. Maybe to give you a goal, I don't know.

Graphically the game has a very minimalistic look. There are no bells and whistles, just the essential stuff. The music is also very soothing... until you get that battle alert at least.
So nothing fancy here but it does look sharp and colorful and has a style of its own which I can absolutely appreciate.

The game also feels very relaxing... until, well, things are about to fall apart. Just like how the real Tetris feels.
Anyway, I like Rymdkapsel. I like it a lot. You should too.

The game looks simple, and that's because it is. Some may find it's options limited, but what it does, it does well. The AI does a lot of the work, you have no direct control over your blocky minions. Rest assured the AI does it's job pretty well, I rarely got annoyed by the AI doing things inefficiently.

If you're looking for a challenge you can up the difficulty by going for the harder modes or attempting some of the more difficult achivements. All of a sudden efficient placement of your tetrislike rooms becomes a lot more crucial!

In short, definitely recommended for anyone who is into this kind of strategy/management games. If you're looking for a game with a lot of different options or want control over your "troops", then Rymdkapsel might be too niche for you.

I really want to recommend this; it's got a neat 'space minimalism' theme going for it, the tetris-RTS gameplay is kind of its own thing, and it is really fun ... for the first playthrough or two.

Unfortunately, this is the sort of strategy game where the first time you play, you realize all your mistakes five minutes after you make them. The second time, you realize what's pretty much an optimal strategy for the game. From there, all you can do is tweak that strategy a little bit. Also, there's a pretty obvious and easy way to futz the tetris-block-placement part of the gameplay and once you start doing that, the game is more about how OCD you want to be with the building placement than anything else.

Fun for a couple of hours, but then the overall fun-to-work ratio gets much worse. A pity, because like I said, there are some legitimately neat things about this game.

☺ Nice minimalist style.
☺ An interesting challenge.

☹ Little variation in tactics.
☹ Some inefficient AI.
☹ Limited replayability.

A game for fans of refining tactics and efficiency based challenges.

Rymdkapsel is a minimalist resource and time management game where efficiency is of utmost importance. Your goal is to expand your space station by placing down rooms as effectively as possible taking into account their shape which is somewhat random and inspired by Tetris as you stretch out through the void heading for your ultimate goal, the research of four mysterious Monoliths.

To do this, you command your minions to fulfil a specific task, such as construction or research and watch as they do their best to fulfil their roles while you oversee expansion and reassign positions as needed, like switching up an engineer who usually boosts resource production into a defencive role to thwart incoming enemies who periodically attack your minions.

The game uses a collection of known variables and tasks you with using them as best you can. As such, its the type of game that might appeal to those who enjoy refining a strategy or simply improving on a previous attempt. Don't expect a great deal of variation, you'll likely learn everything you need to during your first attempt and from then on, its a matter of using that knowledge efficiently to succeed.

Just like the resource you collect in game, there is enjoyment to be extracted from the game...I just feel it runs dry sooner than you'd expect, not helped by AI oddities such as your builders quite happily doubling up on resources for a construction or the lack of direct minion control can lead to mild frustration.

It's an interesting game and one that I'd like to recommend, but feels a little bit like a proof of concept rather than a fully fledged title. What's there is good but slightly limited and as such I'd strongly recommend waiting for a discount as even if you really enjoy it, it could prove to be very short lived.
