Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Tons of polish
The game has beautiful hand drawn graphics as well as a great score with lonely overtones, which creates a fantastic and original feeling atmosphere. This sort of polish in a mobile game is not always the norm, which is why Out There tends to stand out above many other options.
Pro Fun turn-based resource management
Out There features a great mix of turn based strategy with complex resource management. The resource management works by only allowing you so many slots to store needed materials. These materials are collected on and around planets, and vary depending on where you are. So it makes for a situation where you need to carefully manage your inventory in order to have the necessary materials on hand to survive, which is no an easy task.
Pro Each playthrough is unique
Out There procedurally generates the game by generating random modular elements on each playthrough, making for a unique experience on every play through.
Con Uninspiring gameplay
There is an extremely limited number of actions to undertake. Playing it sometimes feels like a grind.
Con Each replay feels very similar
There is a multitude of ways to die in Out There, and being that the game is a roguelike, there will be a lot of restarts. Each and every death brings the player back to the beginning, to do everything over again. This can be frustrating, and a cause for lulls in play at each beginning.
