You'll have to make sure they don't die of hunger or fatigue, but it can even be fun. And by the way, you may recycle the spares in a bioreactor at any moment!

Despotism 3k reviews and comments

Product received for free Despotism 3k – Build your empire using people as fuel, multiply them to get more energy! This project is a kind of bagel, made in pixel style by the Russian company Konfa Games. Immerse yourself in a new world where robots are the main, and man-it is only expendable material, which requires its energy. You are given the opportunity to manage men, but this time you play the role of not the boss, and the one who will throw a couple of people in acid, for the sake of energy. The Mechanics of the game consists of several points: Multiply people produce energy in the wheel make food for your fuel Recycle unnecessary in energy Control simple, many buttons are not involved. You are required to maintain a scale Of life for people: if they work too hard, they will die. It is also worth watching the food, which should suffice at all, otherwise-hungry will die, after which they can not even be re-worked, and sorry. But The main task is to improve the generation of energy, because if you do not have the necessary level during the next subtraction from your repository-the game will not end for the man, and for you. That's where the main difficulty appears, which makes this game more interesting, its essence is that every 20 seconds you will climb a certain amount of energy and products, and every day will take more and more, so you have to constantly Increase your energy and food production, otherwise your "world domination" will last only a couple of days, after which consumables (people) would make you a consumable. To Help postpone or approximate your end can be an event that appears at the beginning of a new day and gives you the opportunity to make a choice in one of the random situations. Your choice in this game is valued, a bad decision can ruin you, and good-to give new opportunities and make life easier. For example, you can give a chance to one clever man to show his invention, from which you get an increase to the production of energy (he created a wheel inside the wheel, so that people twisted the wheel while spinning the wheel). Do Not forget that the developers make the game accent on the sea, can be very peculiar, but the sea. This can be understood simply by looking at the camera in which new people are produced (a good place that can help you distract while you are waiting for the melting of another portion of miserable little people). The Situations are made interesting, and you will definitely enjoy solving these mini-puzzles, especially when the game is at stake. To Say that you have completely passed the game is possible only after 25 days, but after it your shop will not stop using people for their own purposes. In fact, the game is endless, which is why you will be able to arrange competitions with friends, and brag that you have reworked more people than your friend. You can Start a new campaign with some modules, all different modes 10, the first is a classic, and the rest can be opened when certain conditions are reached. This Project has a good playability, and is ideal for a couple of evenings of processing people under a jar of beer or orange juice. The Graphics are nice, the game is quite often diluted with different factors, which was mentioned above, while it keeps you constantly focused, because the solution needs to be taken quickly and correctly. It is Necessary to try yourself as a manager at such a factory. 10/10 Vitya, B * * * Again the ventilation in the wheel broke, the hilt! Review written by TheNikCD, specifically for "online Reviews"
