About

About the game : In the year of 2230, Mining and Research vessel Tartarus (MRS TARTARUS 220478) activates the security protocol near Neptune without any sign. The only chance for crew to survive is to reach the Bridge and restart all systems one by one before the ship crashes into Neptune. We are playing as Cooper(cook and miner of the ship) who has no education or training about electronics or pilotage; to overcome this, vessels engineer ''Andrews'' is helping us as much as he can. Though it's not as easy as it sounds... About the gameplay : TARTARUS is a First Person game with Action elements, set in terrifyingly dark sci-fi universe. In TARTARUS, you will play as Cooper. You are trying to hack the ship's system's via using "Terminals". Hacking the ship is the real challenge. You have to use specific Terminal commands, which are very realistic, to make it work. Sometimes you have to search "Items" to get information which you need, to solve problems. TARTARUS has retro style elements like iconic sci-fi movies. Features : -First Person Action -Immersive storytelling with a rich and simple gameplay -Advanced text based puzzles -Retro-Futuristic Atmosphere

In and of itself a good Game. Which is very reminiscent of Alien Isolation from The gloomy environment. The Tasks are not bad. Partly but very demanding. The Work on the Terminals is very reminiscent of the good old MS-Dos with the command lines commands. Some things tell me as if you almost need an IT degree to look through. The Flashlight you have is very fun-like and doesn't really make you bright. So now, unfortunately, I have to get to the Part that this Assessment has been negative. This is the final Act in which you're supposed to go to Andrews and have to open the Door. You are threatened with a Gun and can only run away. You have to try to start a Rescue Capsule in the Room, which then takes another 90 Seconds. In time you don't have to try to get shot by Andrews, who has Superaim and always hits no matter from what Distance. Apparently, he also has X-ray Vision and super sensitive Volcanic Ears. This Scene made it impossible for me to gamble through the Game. For me an absolutely bad Ending to make such a Part where everything could be solved with Puzzles without Time Pressure. Absolutely not recommended.

Its really crazy heavy from the beginning... I think many of the bad voting people here are just frustrated... The game has a lot of frustration potential. Yes... also if you have computer system skills. morse skills, riddle solving skills and math experience. But i found it challenging. Not so many games do that these days. Maybe a bug.... On my nvidia 1070 in the first few scenes the screen is jerking around.... i never had that problem on any other game... and unreal engine should run smoothly. Anyway. The idea is super... but really its nothing for kids... and maybe also not for many older guys who dont lile riddles. I liked it very much. It was only a bit short... And i have to say a bit pedantic... F.i. you have to enter some numbers with 4 digits after the dot. Come on that took me one more try. Funny i saw a floppy disk in the game... wow that spaceship uses reeeeeeeelly old tech ;-) What i found very cool was that you individually changed some riddles so that cheaters cant peek on youtube. And the big final.... Well... i needed some.... a few.... ok honestly... a million trys... and the sound comming from the crazy guy are not always played in a realistic loudness. Sometimes he was loud if he is close.. sometimes not... But the KI was ok. Conclusion: Well its nothing for a stupid jump-and-run-kind-of-3d-Shooter-kids with no brain. It took me 7 hours to get though and it was worth the time and money.
