Unicrum is a browser-based real-time strategy with economic elements. The game is set in a space sci-fi convention, so it may interest the fan in such items as OGame. Unicrum's strong point is the player's freedom in choosing the path of development. We can strive for economic or military domination, and the game does not lead us by the hand and avoids straightforwardness.
After creating an account, the game immediately greets us with the start screen and dop Although I didn't see a link to the encyclopedia, I felt a bit overwhelmed – at first glance the game looks very complex, but after a while we gain confidence. In this review I will capture only a handful of mechanics and interesting solutions offered in the game. and this will be a loose overview of the game, rather than a detailed description of each mechanic. Wr Let's get to the point – on the aforementioned start screen, in accordance with the standards of this type of games, we will see a preview of the system The amount of raw materials on our planet and the. The amount of raw materials is refreshed every second, so it's easy to keep an eye on the pulse and strategically plan our future expenses. Acquiring raw materials is probably the most important game mechanic and it is where we start to develop The planet's raw materials section. After a reasonable amount of resources have been extracted In this case, we are forced to take a look at the research section, which This will allow for further development Infrastructure, economy or defense.
Research will determine our further actions in the game, so it is worth determining your intentions as soon as possible. We can bet against Both on the offensive and defensive; Colonization missions or pacifist reconnaissance missions etc. The game allows us a basic freedom of gameplay style and articulation of our ideology, but in the research section I missed more passive perks in which In the initial phases of the game we focus on developing mines and building a star fleet, which would better define our style of play and help us better adapt to the world of Unicrum. Of course, I don't expect Unicrum to be dor I don't want to be pinch-marked and I don't want to be a jerk. Actually, Unicrum thanks to its lower complexity was able to attract me faster than the richer competition. In the early stages of the game we focus on developing mines and building a star fleet, which ra will enable us to carry out mining expeditions. There will be time for defensive/offensive p later, and this is no less important or neat aspect of the game. Each unit has a specific The description and stats are detailed, and producing them is meaningful and rewarding. During these expeditions, we acquire neutrinos, which This opens the door to trade on the commodities market. By the way, I would like to mention that neutrinos and raw materials (uranium, gold, coal, iron) can be purchased in the “Unicrum Market”. This is the only form of micropayment in the game and – most importantly – it is not invasive and does not affect the player's direct advantage.
A large part of the game is based on e can also colonize other planets and gradually expand our galaxy. It is important to take into account the The level of development of the colonization mission research and the conditions conducive to colonization. The universe in the game is divided into 99 galaxies, and each of them consists of 99 systems ith nine planets. Phew.. a lot of nines. Planets They differ from each other in the richness of resources and each galaxy imposes a maximum g The new resource limits on all planets. It is interesting that we can send mining expeditions even to the enemy planet. The fact is that expeditions are aimed at extracting raw In this game we can play without damaging our opponent's infrastructure, but surprisingly we are not always completely doomed to failure. A lot of players (especially new ones) neglect the planetary defense. The opposite of a peaceful mining expedition are the robbery missions. They rely on stealing raw materials in the warehouse system in your opponent's.
Unicrum is a game that The game could have won a lot in the strategic text-game segment, if only it would have been more recognizable and had a bigger budget. All current game mechanics are going in the right direction and the production definitely deserves your attention. Especially if you are looking for a less obliging and smaller OGame.
