100 Word Review - #S3 - Sol Survivor

Who replaced the laser with a spotlight?
Sol Survivor

Genre - Strategy, Indie

Metascore - 75%

Developer - Cadenza Interactive

Other Games by Developer - N/A

Stef's Playtime - 7.8 hours

Sol Survivor is one of the first tower defence games to get a retail release I am aware of, and while the strategy aspect is sound something just doesn't seem right. The weapons just don't feel like they have any "oomph!". Even the orbital laser cannon feels like a laser pen instead of a WMD. A lacklustre soundtrack doesn't help either. I think the best way to describe this game is "competent but bland". I did enjoy the challenge of fending off waves of creeps but a complete lack of atmosphere really stopped me from getting drawn in. Decidedly average.

Stef's Score - 5/10
