Despite roguelikes being just about my favorite genre around, I am admittedly not the best at them. They generally require a level of dedication and persistence I'm just not able to give, but that's what had me so addicted to Shattered Planet.

The game has a very simple and seamless one-click control system for movement and attacks as well as an incredibly clean and easy to use UI. Armed with only your headgear, trusty weapon, and a plethora of helpful and sometimes unidentified and dangerous items gathered along the way you'll be tasked with exploring deeper in to the broken pieces of this strange and ancient planet collecting as much resource as you can for your next trip. You will die and lose your items. A lot. The only question is how far can you make it before you fail, passing this heinous task onto the next unsuspecting clone?

This is easily the most accessible, easy to get into and just plain fun roguelike of recent memory and yet still offers the same complexity and depth of other top games in the genre in terms of the huge scope of items, classes, events, and enviroments. At the center of the game is the Science Lab your cloned characters seem to be born from acting as the hub for your journey. You have tons of options here to prepare for the oncoming descent including the Clone Vat you're spawned from giving you multiple class and character appearance options, a shop to gamble crystals away for new equipment to save for later trips, a training console for using your hard-earned scrap to increase stats, and a pet cloner for storing DNA of found companions all unlocked through your progress on the unknown floors below.

There are a multitude of modes to tackle all featuring engrossing procedurally generated alien landscapes, starting with the Explorer mode which is a progressive journey that slowly edges you deeper into the fragmented shards of these broken planets as you earn more scraps to better prepare yourself for each consecutive run. Players also have three challenge modes of varying difficulty to test your wits after prolonged practice and equipment hoarding and last but certainly not least the Daily Challenge which gives everyone a new planet generated every day and predetermined gear to try their luck with.

Shattered Planet is gorgeous and absolutely pleasing to the eyes to play, thanks to the stunning hand-drawn artwork and organic backgrounds that make you feel as though you've stepped into some otherworldly painting. The game has a very engaging sci-fi setting with a dystopic tale of impending human extinction, and while the overtone and story of your hundreds of re-cloned human explorers is mostly serious there are some very humorous moments in your adventures. For example, going into battle near the beginning of my career as an explorer with nothing but my Cabbage Helmet and a rolled-up newspaper as my weapon felt great everytime.

Shattered Planet breathes a fresh breath of air into the roguelike genre and is easily recommendable for players of all skill levels, whether it be casual explorers looking for a relaxing bit of discovery and progression or more hardcore roguelike veterans who want to go for that perfect run on the daily challenge.

Love this game. I rate it 4 out of 5 sciences


I had some time with the Pre-Steam version and I am very happy to say that even in Early Access stage, SP is shaping up to be a great game. To put it simply... Shattered Planet is a lot of fun.

You will explore.
You will research.
You will fight.
You will die.

All in the name of science.

You are able to permanently level up the stats of your clone to make future expeditions a little easier.

I've found that one of your biggest keys to success is chosing the right combo of weapon and headwear. There are tons of weapons, items, and headgear to choose from. Some with interesting perks and nice stat boosts.

Getting a pet to fight by your side is also a big help. Especially once you get further along on an expidition and the enemies get really brutal.

Shattered Planet is a gem in the current flood of rougelikes.

Enjoyable planet exploration rogue-like game with certain elements that carry over to next playthroughs. Offers quite a few of unlockables and a very good sense of progression throughout the game, with every new monster and weapon carrying you a bit closer to the next unlock.

Addition of daily challenges and quests makes for some good variety addingto the 'standard' runs.
I'd recommend it :)

Grab your bucket helmet and call forth your trusty Crablet Princess... it's time to die! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LiPiUHqQnT0

It's clean, I love the art style. It's quick - something I can jump into at any time and not be too concerned how long it might take me - great for those bits of free time I get between other things. Death is permanant in so far as you lose the items you were carrying, but really it's more about bringing back crystals and scrap metal, neither of which you lose on death.

I like that I don't have to be TOO careful if I don't feel like it. Sometimes I speed run a game just to see if I get some lucky finds quickly - other times I take it slow and see just how far I can get - either way works depending on the mood I'm in.

Throw in the item variety (though I could always use more), world randomization and persistance of your ship upgrades and you have something that works very well for me.

Cause Aliens and Rogue-Like! Buy it!

I've already played the mobile version on Android.
Now I love this game more then ever <3

+ awesome Battle Music
+ sweet Texture Details, Charakters, Aliens and environment
+ hundreds of weapons, armor, Items, Companion Pets, ...
+ customizable Charakters
+ upgrade your Strength, Wits, and Health
+ different world every time
+ create new equipment for your clone by using R.O.S.A. (Random Object Synthesis Apparatus) <3
+ random Events
+ discover new Fluids
+ and many more +++

At the moment, there's nothing negative to say about this game, except the very hard Daily Missions. (Maybe I can survive with better equipment?)

So give it a try :)
In my opinion it's worth the whole price.
