Mindrover Review

June 7th, 2001 by michael

Woody Hughes wrote in to let us know that he has posted a review of Loki‘s latest title, Mindrover, on MaximumLinux.org. The review covers the usual packaging, installation, configuration, and gameplay issues. Mindrover was originally developed by Kent Quirk and the other swell guys at Cognitoy.

    That was a right awful review. I mean, it didn’t actually describe the gameplay at all other than as “building rovers” and talking about stuff you can put on them. Made it sound more like Mechwarrior than what the game actually is. If I hadn’t already played the demo, I would have a completely false impression of what the game was, and would be wondering what, exactly, is so different about it.

    And take this quote: “Nor is this some boring brainiac puzzle game. This is MindRover, a game that forces you to be the best–unless, of course, you like to lose.” What? That makes no sense, and really doesn’t tell me anything, except that the reviewer is worried I’ll mistake mindrover for a puzzle game.

    At least the part about grahpics quality and the lack of option richness gave me an idea of what to actually expect.

    Oh well. Just download the demo and see what it’s about for yourself.

    it gives you a nice picture what it’s like, except the real game is in 3d and has more stuff in it. but that online version is fun too.

    My little brother is 8 years old and he loves this game. I think Woody didn’t like it because he isn’t in *my* recommended age-group of 6 to 12 years old. Anyone between that age-group would love this game. So parents, this is a good, stable game to purchase for your kid! Don’ take Woody’s advice because he was under the influence of his significant other when he was playing; and we all know what that’s like huh?
