Notes and Discussions:
  • Shane (10/20/2014): I have a weakness for build trees.  I love them, honestly.  Back in middle school, I sat for hours reading the build tree insert that came with StarCraft.  I kept reading it long past when I had memorized it.  That obsession continues through to other games but I didn't expect a game to be nothing but that mechanic.

    Unfortunately this isn't a very good game.  I think that is mostly because there isn't really any GAME to play.  As the screenshot above states, I did eventually find all of the elements, but after the first 40 or so, I did it out of obsession more than any feeling of entertainment.  I even feel a bit angry at myself for how many screen taps I made for essentially no good reason.

    So, I finished this one, but I can't recommend it.  The connections that the developers tried to make didn't usually make much sense to me, which was frustrating. And, as you are collecting these icons, there isn't anything to DO with them.  Just make more connections that reveal nothing.

    3/10.  Bonus for the sense of accomplishment I felt when I was done.  Another point gained because the game had Cthulhu.
