Drifter reviews and comments

Early Access Review The Game is very repetative and monotonous and without Attention to Detail. The Textures are coarse and the Gameplay repeats itself. You buy Raw Materials sells them again and fight against always the same Ship types. The Combat System is very primitive. The AI behaves bluntly and predictable and the Ship can only be controlled 2 dimensionally. Outside, there are no more updates the Game has been abandoned in Beta and nothing new is being implemented anymore. There are also many Bugs. No Bullet recommendation from me. Especially not for 12 euro

Early access review a game with a lot of potential! Some negative points though:-it is quite frustrating to always stay on the same plane-the menus are not very readable or very intuitive (I do not understand everything yet, or everything is not implemented)-the different systems are very similar-the fights are quite repetitive apart from that, I find nice the exploration aspect (especially as the Galaxy is immense: o). The missions are still lacking a little diversity but they are not uninteresting (I like the hunting of pirates!). So much potential. Good luck to developpeur (s). With all my support!

Early Access Review I was quite impressed by the Concept of the Game, but the Game NOCH, even for Early Access, is at a far too unfinished Stage. Poor 2D Control, despite Momentum, far too simple Combat Sequences, completely dry trading Component and overall simply no Depth of Play, paired With Graphics that was more relevant 5-10 Years ago. Of course, just a Snapshot of the current State Of development of the Game, but still simply not enough to justify the comparatively high Price for what is on offer. The whole thing is also available from me as a Video Review on YouTube (LINK), if someone wants to see the whole thing with moving Pictures.

Early access review certainly, we feel the potential of the game at the time of the launch... The universe is great, the resources are numerous and suggest a certain wealth at the commercial level. The game turns on your grandfather's bike and in a hyper-fluid way which does not leave the small purses on the tile. But the game suffers from a major flaw: it is not immersive... I am well aware that this is an indie game but the game is not very beautiful, we do not feel the Vertigo of space, the menus are dull and the sound design is not enough marking. The maneuverability is not very interesting, and rather cripante on the fights, quite soft for that matter. Moreover, I have the impression that the developer has not been able to hide his small budget behind a beautiful artistic direction that makes the game alive. In the State the game is pretty cold. I advise rather to wait for the final version.
