"Rymdkapsel makes its more ornate competitors feel needlessly garnished."
- New York Times, nytimes.com
rymdkapsel is a meditative strategy game set in space. Take on the challenge of building the best possible station by commanding your minions and exploring the galaxy around you.
Imagine a strategy game where you don't have to worry about selecting units or mounting attacks on your enemies, but rather can focus on building the best base possible.
That's what rymdkapsel is all about.
"Rymdkapsel feels tailor-made for iOS in both form and function, and its elegant, subtle constituent parts nest within one another as neatly as its four-block tetrominos snap together along a space station corridor."
- 5/5 stars, Joseph Leray, toucharcade.com
"Some games nearly make me miss my subway stop. Some games tempt me to keep on playing them while I'm walking down the street. This is one of them."
- Stephen Totilo, kotaku.com
"The game punishes the greedy, and rewards the prudent. If you’re attentive, you’ll notice that there’s actually a happy medium between the two: optimal efficiency."
- Ryan Rigney, wired.co.uk
"Rymdkapsel combines spatial puzzling, tower defence and base-building into a brilliantly coherent and stylish whole."
- Christian Donlan, eurogamer.net
What's New in Version 3.0.2
Two new game modes, four new monoliths, seven new achievements, and various bug fixes and performance improvements.
I love this game, I had bought it for the PSVita, and now for iOS. It's the same, but this version is slightly improved. I wish it could have random scenarios in order to be always playable, since once you finish the game you don't want to play the same world all over again. Also, I'd like to have more control over a single minion, now it's pretty random which one is going to do the action you assign. 4 star, could be 5.
Astoundingly good and complex
This games has a lot in it. It's addictive and has an easy to catch mechanic. Like how you have the option to develop new strategies to achieve the the rather simply stated goals (very challenging) - it keeps the process of building and connecting interesting. There is more subtly to this game than at first might appear. Added bonus to those like like Tetris too!
Fun, but limited
This is neither an overcomplicated port of a desktop RTS, nor a dumbed down, pay to win iOS base builder; it is one of the few strategy games simple enough for touchscreen controls, but deep enough to deserve the title. Sadly it stops far too soon, and it ends up feeling like the first level of the next great strategy sim, rather than the game itself. It feels like a lost opportunity, but I guess that is what sequels are for.
