The Signal From Tölva reviews and comments

The Game impresses with simple Engine and good Mechanics. It's a Mix of Shooter with Collector and a nice Background Story. Unfortunately, it is over quite quickly and you wish to do more, but that makes a good Game. I can recommend it to anyone.

I can't really recommend this game at the price of 19,99€. For an open world game the environment is way to dead and empty. Not very engaging, really. The occasional shooting here and there is okay-ish, but it gets boring really fast. It just doesn't justify the price, in my opinion. For under 10€... well maybe.

Product received for free Very good survival/crafting open-world Game. Direct Control, catchy Menus, good Graphics. The Idea with a robot planet is also very interesting. World could be a little more buoyant.

I thought the Game was pretty good. Found? Yes, because at 12h you actually have it all through. Includes the different Endings, Side Quests and almost all Item Upgrades. The Story was ok and the AI relatively clever. The battles were the most Fun when more Allies joined. Laser Guns at Night just look great! I had no Problems with Crashes or CTDs. Game ran down to a few rather insignificant Bugs around. 10/10

Wow... The game was released on the 10th and already come to recreate the fury ... It crashes, it looks shit out of blah blah blah ... To fix the developers time, let her not really wat? Well, Don't matter my beer. I personally find the game very good, so far only 1 crash had but that came from win10 itself rather than the game ^^ graphically has to be optimized in any case but playfully this is really recommended! Story is very good and you have a lot to do, the hacking of neutral robots I think also horny the support you at least in the fight before they are not proceeding seriously ... Or get stuck in walls ... The disappearing can be improved and the bunker can be attacked more often once they have been conquered. I wouldn't mind if my allied also nen turret put what they don't do:( What a pity... But otherwise topp! Admitting The game as early access freely with what the game already has is great. If you don't mind the little bugs and optimization problems, you can buy it. As for crashes ... 90% of all game crashes are related to your defective regedit keys, which are collected in the course of time with installations and eclipsing ... Not only makes the pc lame but also ensures neat crashes of programs ... I recommend it Prost meal
