About

Sol 0 is a real time strategy game where you establish the first Martian colony. From the first human footprints on Martian soil to a thriving and self-sustaining colony, Sol 0 imagines a near future using technology that could be available within the next few decades. Make use of minerals and resources across the Martian surface to expand from the first exploratory rover to an independent frontier.

From Chondrite Games, Sol 0 gives players the ultimate chance to take on the challenges inherent in pushing the boundaries of space exploration and habitation. Grow food, extract water, build habitats, generate electricity, evade unpredictable Martian weather, mine natural resources, and construct increasingly complex and sophisticated colony bases.Challenging simulation
You’ll be faced with balancing food and water needs, oxygen and energy supplies, natural resource collection, and preparing for weather disasters including meteorite impacts and dust storms. Prioritize the supplies you bring to ensure your colony’s survival.Become independent from Earth
The technology featured in Sol 0 is inspired by concepts currently being developed and deployed for Martian exploration. From water and mineral extractors, rovers with fine-tuned instruments, and biology labs that cross-breed bacterial strains from Earth’s extreme environments to increase food production on Mars, the available tools reflect an ever closer reality.Explore Mars and worlds beyond
Ice caps, lava plains, and arid equatorial regions each offer distinct challenges to success, and randomly generated maps provide extended playability. Build custom maps using the Sol 0 Map Editor, and share your creations with other players.

Sol 0: Mars Colonization reviews and comments

Sol 0 or Sol Zero is by Far one of the few indie titles that can be seen in 2016. From Earth, Space Probes are sent into Space to different Planets to build a Colony there. Even at the Beginning, it is important to have the right Mission of the vital Things. And then go to the Planet ... And about Survival and colonize! If you dare, take a look here: https://youtu.be/bKd9rLa_dOE The Game impresses with a Simplicity that we had hoped for from many a great Title. The Music is coherent, the Sounds very well chosen and the Atmosphere is created quickly. The Replay value is enormous, especially since you shouldn't think that with only one Rocket to Mars, the Drops have already slipped! This is what Tinkerers! From me there is the ABSOLUTE KAUFEMPFEHLING, because price performance is awesome. And I think you really should really support such Developers!

After a big Step for Humanity, a big Leap follows. The Story: Humanity is now ready to colonize Mars. Our Task as Players is to play the all-seeing Eye Of "Mission Control" to coordinate or control this Project so that the Whole thing goes as smoothly as possible from Statts. Quite a nice Idea, but maybe something very simple. So only 5/10 Points. The Gameplay: As an all-seeing Eye, we fly over the entire Playing field in a Bird's Eye view and control almost everything with just our Mouse. So you can't say too much about the Gameplay itself. However, The Camerawork is very positive here. You don't shoot beyond the Target, nor do you need to get wide in front of the Screen with a Coffee, because the Camera would be about too slow or the like. In itself, a very simple Gameplay, but where the Developers have paid attention to every Detail. Thus 7/10 Points for the Gameplay My Review: Pro: Persistent Thrills through possible Meteorite Showers or Sandstorms Annating absolute Boistary-level level editor + workshop Integration Remarkable Development curve Contra: Currently limited content (Currently limited content ( Buildings, Rails, resources, ...) Save automatically brings one to the Main Menu (no Saving during a Game) More Information: Achievements: No Play Time: As long as you enjoy it, as it is not a Combat Urn In the traditional Sense. Bugs hit: Instead of simply closing, the Game crashes when you press "Quit." My Conclusion: For all Strategy und/or base build fans, this Game is a very nice Change. Overall, I settled on 7/10 Points as the Game is very well implemented despite the Simplicity. This Review was written as a Standings within one's own Genre.
