A Dark Room reviews and comments

Translated by

Halfway between the old textual adventure, the strategic, the RPG and even a little surprise arcade (without Spoilerare) in the end. A little indie jewel for those who know how to appreciate the essence of a well done game even without the glitzy graphical effects and the three-dimensional sound. Three hours of fun.

When travelling on the map, HP is not restored after battle. And the +10HP is not as fast at restoring as it should be, resulting in speedy deaths when you enter your 2nd, 3rd or 4th battle, since the HP was never restored to full, and you don't have the option to restore it to full before battle. I've been stuck on this for days. Really sucks.

I decided to invest almost two euros because the original game on the browser looked really interesting. Unfortunately the application has MANY problems, including the fact of not immediately displaying resources in stock, asks for confirmation when you build, a button reset game always in the middle of the main screen (?), but most importantly do not update when the app is Closed. And you can't always stay and watch it. Unfortunately game and applications are old, so I do not hope in an update. Too bad.

This is definitely one of the best games I’ve played, it captured my imagination, and kept me interested on an appropriate philosophical level. It’s well balanced, very well thought out, and slow going, but I felt the whole way through I felt that it was up to me to keep the game going forward, that I’m in control, which is refreshing. Many games go too fast and don’t give one time to soak in the art of the game. And in my opinion, that’s exactly what this game is, it’s a piece of art! So thanks Michael and Amir for this unique, and amazingly simple piece of perfection.

I downloaded the Game on the pc and found really good. Unfortunately, there is a lot to improve on the iOS Version. The Buttons are partly placed in unsightly Places and there is no import function. That means I can now play about 10 Hours until I reach my current Status. Unfortunately, there is also no "x2" Version or an even faster version to compensate for this. I'm not sure you can send your People on Adventures in Caves etc, I haven't reached that far yet. But Wouldn't Know where to find space. The UI Is revised and a faster Version of the Game (or Import Function) is offered. Or General Settings, my Rating would be above the Scale! All in all top Game.
