CardLife: Cardboard Survival reviews and comments

Just on the Day I tried it again after ' a While, the 1.0 Release came. In short and crisp, I was very disappointed, because apparently very little has happened and what has happened is, in my Opinion, a Step backwards in part. In addition, the Game lacks depth. You collect Resources and crape from them, the Combat System is .. Bary and Opponents often jerk through the Area, no planting, no Taming or anything that would be interesting. I actually expected something big to Come out of It, but now I rather doubt it (of course, 1.0 doesn't mean that there is an End, but 1.0 does idR mean that the Game is ready)-and if so, I would call It boring. For pure Builders and Creators, it may be quite attractive, as you have a lot of Freedoms. The Rest, in my Opinion, is rather empty. Sorry for this Review .. I am reluctant to write Negatives, but a Recommendation, as I said, is only under these Circumstances.

Early Access Review Very Beautiful Game. Is already Fun to play. Early Access typical there are of course still Bugs or things that still need to be supplemented here and There, but I enjoy it a lot. If I had to describe it I would say it's similar to Minecraft, but significantly more hampered and has enough unique selling points to go through as a standalone game. You can really decorate everything from your Character, Weapons, Boxes to walls the way you want it. I Find extremely ingeniously solved and you can let your Creativity run absolutely free here. The Roadmap also looks very good if everything that is announced comes. Verdict: All who loved Minecraft will surely be happy here. To everyone else (like me) to whom Minecraft is ugly despite the many Possibilities but are looking for a building game in which you can really get creative should really take a closer look at the whole time. As far as I am concerned, there is an absolutely unrestricted recommendation to buy.

Early Access Review The Game idea is horny, no Question about it. But there is simply too little to do and too many Bugs, which clouds the Game Experience a lot. For example, Sprinting didn't go until I restarted the Game or the Axe or Pickaxe Can still be used even though they are broken. The Game just appeared too early in Early Access and therefore does not receive a Recommendation from me at first. But What the Developers have in mind sounds very great and leaves nothing to Be desired so far. I don't return the Game because I find this Cardboard World and the game idea involved Awesome and of course you want to support the Developers. If you think the Idea is great, don't force yourself, support the Developers and lend you the Early Access Version. Above all, it works out to create the Character and the Tools very well. I very much Hope that regular update and Bug fixes will come and that the Development will be consistently carried out as with the previous show Developer Unknown Worlds, who have developed Subnautica With a lot of Passion (Best Early Access experience so far on Steam) Dear Greetings and Happy Dev:) GameMakerXtreme P.S.: I will very much change my Review to the Positive as soon as I am worth the Updates, thank you!
