[Featured App Review] Space Harvest 05/16/10

May 16, 2010 by

Thanks to All-Seeing Interactive for the promo code to this app! 
Sorry, we do not have a YouTube video for this app; Microsoft issues (MovieMaker can’t save).
Space Harvest by All-Seeing Interactive is an interactive strategy game where you are an intergalactic mushroom picker (points for creativity; wink wink) available in the app store for $1.99.
So the year is 2314. An asteroid falls to Earth in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. Over time, it is noticed that mushrooms are dying and that sends the world into turmoil (more points for creativity).
You are part of a space program to find and harvest mushrooms in the Heavens. 
The game itself? Looked very cool. I played and played and played for a long time (though it was confusing). I am a fan of strategy games like this (oh, by the way, me and Simon are planning something big for Canada Day) though Simon isn’t. He calls me a nerd. Then again, I’m the one that runs the site. He just goes “typie, typie” for about 10 minutes a week.
The retro style reminded me of RCT and RCT2 (Google it). And I liked RCT and RCT2. Got them from a cereal box. $2.99. They retail for $9.99 and $19.99 respectively. I would say I got the better end of that bargain.
But I digress, retro is still retro. The gameplay was confusing, I mean, when you’re playing a game, WHO READS? (Please comment and share all). Especially if there’s a lot to read like in Space Harvest or ZENONIA.
Like I said earlier, the graphics were retro-style. The interface was friendly but there was a lot of reading. The gameplay was fun, addictive. IT WAS VERY CREATIVE. End of story.
Graphics: 3.5/5
UI: 4/5
Gameplay: 4.5/5
Creativity: 5/5
Our rating: 4.5/5
Total: 21.5/25 or 86%.
