About

SummaryIn the far future, humans explore and colonise space using ridiculously deadly, moon-sized trains - 'Astro Locomotives'. They're operated by enormous, competing railroad companies and train vs. train combat is (expensively) common.

Take control of a mistreated mechanic and a swashbuckling pilot as you try to save Gilbert Station from destruction at the hands of an alien death fleet!Features
  • Classic 1990s adventure gameplay! Inspired by genre classics such as Space Quest, Monkey Island and Day of the Tentacle.
  • Trains. In space. That's worth the entry price, right there.
  • The funniest writing in an adventure game this side of the millenium. That might be a positive or a negative, depending on how much you enjoy laughing until you dribble.
  • Two playable characters for the price of one.
  • Fully voiced! You'll also be able to turn the voice-over off, since we know some of you like to do that. Just know that every time someone ticks that particular box in the game settings, we'll kill one of our voice actors.
  • Fully soundtracked! You won't be able to turn the music off. In fact, the volume slider starts at 100% and it only goes up from there.
  • The 'unique' graphical style of subAtomic and Plan M!
  • Interesting puzzles and minigames! We know a lot of you adventure gamers out there like to actually have some challenge in your games. For everyone else, just curl up tight, hold down your Escape key, and hope it ends soon.
  • 20 in-game achievements to be unlocked, if you have nothing better to do.
  • An entirely reasonable retail price!

Astroloco: Worst Contact reviews and comments

This game's humor is truly spot on, gameplay is pretty standard point-n-click stuff, but the puzzles and achievement hunting are really great. The ONLY thing preventing this from getting an Exceptional, is that there were quite a few bugs. For instance, trying to open Steam overlay caused all the narration to skip afterwards, which was really disappointing because that was some of the game's highlights. Also, once getting the Oxygen tank, that was forever placed on the screen, even when it was no longer in use. A strange bug happened with a toolbelt too keeping it on screen, which obstructed some things at times. And finally, there was a few instances where the ambient audio would persist even through different areas. Overall, nothing game breaking at all, but definitely hurt the experience a bit. Either way, I would definitely recommend this to anyone who enjoys British and slapstick/cheeky comedy, because it will be right up your alley.
