    While Rymdkapsel's minimalist approach makes for gorgeous visuals and a unique approach to gameplay, it can lead to some frustration in your first playthrough.

    It isn't hugely obviously how certain elements of the gameplay work, for example, and so you'll end up dying due to factors that you'll feel were beyond your control.

    Most notably, it's actually possible to get irretrievably stuck in Rymdkapsel after running out of a certain resource. I learnt this the hard way, and it would have been nice if this potential sticking point had been signposted.

    The game is also extremely slow to get going. This is great when you're playing it for the first time, but on subsequent playthroughs it can make for a rather boring initial 20 minutes or so.

    Even so, Rymdkapsel is gloriously entertaining, and a novel take on the RTS genre. Whether you like your strategy games or not, you should grab this one.
