Ratings and Reviews
Over a year ago, I first gave this app two (2) stars. I played it a few times, couldn’t understand it, and deleted it. In the three weeks since I re-downloaded it, I have won twice, lost countless times, and become completely immersed in Cultist Simulator’s compelling and mysterious atmosphere.
Let me be clear: this game is hard. It takes time to work things out, it’s infuriating when you unwittingly end the game before you can win. But once you’re into the (admittedly steep) learning curve, it is incredibly satisfying to know how to combat various events and happenstances, and when (/if) you win, it feels well earned.
I don’t review many games, only if they’re awful or amazing. Cultist Simulator is amazing. Exactly my kinds of game, exactly my kind of atmosphere. 10/10.
Mediocre and perhaps overrated
This game is quite interesting and exciting when you first start. Reading the description and reviews, it seemed like a very mysterious game as you’re suppose to find out how to play. When I first played it, it did match the descriptions quite well. It starts off slightly confusing and all but as you continue you start to read more of each card and try to look for clues on what to do.
But it does get quite frustrating and in the end it feels like a waste of money. The mechanics works, the graphic are good, and the idea is interesting, which earns the 3 stars from me. But it feels very difficult trying to make significant progress in the game. Trying to gain new cards just to study another card is hard because you don’t get a tutorial. Your character always seems to stop developing at one point because of the difficulty.
My point is, the situation of “I can’t seem to get past this point” happens too often. This makes the game frustrating and boring, while defeating the purpose of the game.
Enjoyment beckons, but at the expense of sanity
Like the makers’ other games, it’s a great idea with novel mechanics, but falls flat when it comes to usability, longevity and player-centric design. Too often, the ‘mysterious’ and ‘explorative’ gameplay ends up being a bit of an excuse for bad interaction design. Be prepared to quickly understand the workings of the game, only to be twice frustrated by how it layouts different classes of cards (not convenient, painfully similar) or how you will frantically need to drag cards into slots vaguely trying to remember which obscure combo allowed you to put another obscure thing in another. At the very least it should upgrade to better helper functions once you have understood the game. I feel oddly punished for understanding how the gameplay works, as the interface punishes the experienced player to provide an initial brief figuring out period.
All in all, I recommend this game for its honest and brave stab at creating new concepts, but I will caveat it with above frustrations.
