"Auralux is real-time strategy in its purest form... It's simple. It's elegant. It's slow and engrossing." – Kotaku

"Auralux is a success. It distills the real-time-strategy game to its purest form." - The A.V. Club

"The later game introduces some very interesting mechanics though, such as black holes, gamma ray bursts, and orbiting planets... There is something for everyone." – Techgage

Customer Reviews

Great Game

Loved the original. Love this one too.

Excellent Real-time strategy game

I was a big fan of the first version of Auralux for its realtime strategy, simplified but elegant graphics, and fantastic music. I have only completed 5 levels of Auralux 2 but the addition of multiplayer mode, enhanced control gestures, and improved visuals are spot on. I can tell I'll be playing this game steadily for the next few months. I look forward to exploring the new game mechanics and finding new strategies.

Great Expansion

I was a fan of the original, and was reminded of it when I saw someone else playing on the subway. When installed Constellations, initially I was disappointed that it seems to be just a visual upgrade to the original, with an online mode. Then I realized that each of the constellations had its own new element, which change strategies dramatically. It's a huge upgrade to the original with a lot of interesting gameplay. Unfortunately it seems the online mode isn't broadly used, possibly because people are scared away by the high price for the full game ($10 at time of review). The price is high for this game and I would encourage the developers to make this a $5 game which would (I think) more than double the number of sales and increase the number of people using the online mode.
