Forbidden is not Always Alluring
Really, you don't want to waste your time on this game! Instead of just trashing the unclear directions, bad grammar, elevator music, and general pointless gameplay of the Forbidden Planet; let me give you a list of 18 "better" uses of your time in space, fellow Star Voyager!

18. Anomaly Series : Really old school strategy with great artwork

17. Energy Balance: Math puzzler in Space with great art

16. Asteroid Bounty Hunter: Space Shooter with Beautiful comic book art & good narrative

15. Apollo 4X: A very good 4X space game

14. Luna’s Wandering Stars: A planetary physics game

13. Habitat: Sandbox Space Ship Builder using space junk for crafting in actual outer space

12. Universe Sandbox 2’ed: A Strictly Simulation that lets you imagine “What if?” Great graphics & Art!

11. Kerbal Space Program: Simulates an actual Space Race for all ‘Kerbal-Kind’ to visit the planets

10. Spore: Strictly for building and designing aliens and alien ships (No action/ just art) Also has action gameplay for evolving creatures.

9. Sid Meier’s Starships: A 4X game that is at the top of it’s game… using a fleet to conquer the universe

8. Rymdresa: Space story in poetry with awesome graphics & art

7. Rymdkapsel: Minimalistic Strategy game that will make you forget why we ever wanted more graphics

6. Planetbase: Build & manage a planetary base, with mini colonists to order around & keep alive

5. Empyrion – Galactic Survival: Survival Sandbox builder with planet to planet travel & base defense

4. Opus: The Day We Found Earth: A Mystery Adventure with excellent narrative & star exploration

3. Offworld Trading Company: An Economic Base Builder Simulation with multiple paths to Corporate Success

2. Stellaris: Grand Strategy meets 4X in a beautiful new space exploration simulation

1. XCOM: Enemy Unknown/ Enemy Within / XCOM 2: The Strategy & 3rdPerson Shooter that lets you rid Earth of aliens with a highly personalizable squad

Heed the warning
& stay away from the ‘forbidden planet.’ You only have so many years on this planet to play video games. Of course, if you just want to spend your money on this to get the cutesy background art… there it is.

Badly balanced game. The only strategy that works is to reinforce a single planet, and hope that teh other planets don't get hit. If you try and protect other planets, then the game becomes impossible as resources are spread too thinly.

The developer needs to make the resource acquisition rate higher, that way it's possible to defend more than one planet.

In summary you can win at this game, but it has little to do with strategy.

Ugh... that game could be made so much better with making more 'reactions'... or buying fuels so tedious... the way you buy things... Crappy, but considering that I got it for free it's not THAT bad. Just failed at simple things :/

Forbidden Planet is sci-fi rogue-like strategy tower defense, which is awesome for casual playing.
I found it most enjoying playin every morning with first coffe 30ish minutes.

Graphic is decent, music is enjoyable, and gameplay provides enough fun with not to get borring any time soon.

In Forbidden Planet your main goal is to protect your home planet, and at the same time colonize and harvest other.

Overall, it is cheap and fun little game, definitely worth keeping eye on it, however only thing I dont like is that there is too much damn asteroids ^^

1) Up, down, left, right arrow keys don't work.
2) I've used the launch widget to remap the 'secondary' WASD input (because I use a Dvorak layout) but the changes I've made haven't been applied; I can only move left ('a' key remains the same).

Time to claim a refund :(
