Archimedes reviews and comments

This is genuinely one of the coolest experiences I have ever had, video game or not. The meta feeling that is present throughout the whole game just really makes this an awesome horror game, would definitely recommend to anyone.

Buy, buy, buy! From the Makers of Hercules. You don't really need to say any more than that. You will love it. 100 Levels. 100 Hours of Play time (if you want or need ^ ^) 100% Gameplay. 100% Score. I'll give you an Info: It's not 1 in 1 like Hercules. This Time you not only have to clear the Way, but build Houses on the Building Sites (including Upgrades for more Gold Income), "Dekokram" or farm Buildings and Collect Resources. You have to get used to the first few Missions, but when you have the Bow out, then the 3-Star ratings purple and the Fun goes steeply up. If you can't do this, you can see a Solution Proposal directly. Thus, it is feasible for everyone, but still not easy to create in time. Perfectly balanced, only with very few Maps was I exceptionally finished a piece faster than probably planned, because otherwise I always had only 1 or 2 Stars in the first Attempt.

Archimedes: Eureka! is a logical game. Developer Zoom Out Games has released a whole series of games with the same type of engine and interface. Only the character's appearance and storyline were Changed. Basically it was a story about Heracles (it is Hercules) in Seri of games "12 Labours of Hercules". What has changed since the first release of the game about Heracles? Yes, strictly speaking, nothing. ALL series of games are held as one big game, without any hint of variety. Maybe It is not so bad, the product is made qualitatively, the drawing is pleasant, the interface is simple and understandable, and the gameplay is addictive. A Good time-killer, mostly for office plankton. What is The new game so unpopular? On the first series of the game thousands of positive reviews, and the new one did not get ten. It is Good that the history of all purchases is saved on Steam, it was not difficult to find a check for the year 2015 for three rubles for the first part about Heracles. You just think, the game was sold for 3 rubles, and the new part costs 175. Now everything is clear. A Bit insulting for the developer, the product is really high quality and the work costs much more than three rubles, but I have a twofold feeling in connection with the fact that all the games are made as a copy. Summing up I want to note that the game is already a template and rolls down to the level of RPG-maker. You can play a Couple of evenings, but you will not be left feeling that where you have already seen all these levels and tasks.
