Ratings and Reviews
Gorgeous and captivating!
I rarely write reviews, but this game was so well-designed and enthralling that I felt that I had to do so. The graphics are stunningly beautiful and this game has consumed my attention since I downloaded it. It gives you the option to watch advertisements to gain currency, culture, and “Genesis Points,” which allow you to build faster, but offers the option in a very inobtrusive way, unlike so many games with obnoxious ads. I watch them occasionally to speed things along and support the developers. I also purchased Genesis Points because I love this game so much I felt obliged to pay something. At this rate, I’ll likely purchase the options to terraform other planets and moons as well. This is a game that is truly enjoyable without spending a cent or watching a single ad, though, and that can be won simply with some patience— which you’ll need anyway! I love the educational aspect and basis in science, and with just the most basic math and science abilities, you’ll enjoy this game as well. I’m looking forward to the next planets and moons already.
I also loved the book recommendations in the information section! The developers clearly prioritized the quality of the game and educational aspect over making a quick profit. I hope others purchase the optional moons, planets, and GP so the team can keep working on this game and more like it. This is the best I’ve played on iOS to date.
I don’t even know where to begin with this app.
It’s 100% as cool as it sounds. I saw it on Facebook and I never download them but it showed how well it was rated in the App Store so I knew it had to be something legit. Gave it a try and now I’m addicted to it. There isn’t really too much I would change to the game other than being able to see ground level and have more control over what happens to the population. As far as what the game is, terraforming a planet, they did an amazing job. I’m sure you can control more but on the basic difficulty level (I highly recommend to start with) you can control the temperature, oxygen, pressure, plant life, money, population size. Everything is highly sensitive. Finding a balance takes time. This is a game that won’t take up too much time at once. You might only play this game a couple times out the day but it’s necessary to check in on your planet every once in a while. Random events and scenarios happen to the population and the planet which I really love.
From a meteoroid on track to hit you, to the population finding a great athlete to honor amongst them. It gives the game a story. You have to make a decision when those things happen immersing you into the game even more. And of course Every action has a reaction. The main task of this game is finding that balance. I’m so glad I found this game. The space nerd in me is ecstatic! I highly recommend!!!
A Console-Level Game On My Phone
I didn't want to like this game, because I've never really been into terraforming or sci-fi games. Terragenesis is an exception to that, and with good reason. This game offers the challenge of having to balance environmental, socio-political, and economic challenges in a way that really makes it come to life. The attention to detail does stand out, with how different levels of Temperature, Pressure, Oxygen, and other things will change the appearance of your planet. The best thing about this game is easily watching your planet change. Watching as the structures and cities you build and all the facilities can change a barren planet like Mars slowly change into a beautiful, thriving planet like Earth, or even watching as Earth slowly decays from a tropical paradise to another copy of Mars. Whats more is the developers aren't greedy with in-game purchases. The difficulty curves can be overcome without the help of Genesis Points (though it is not preferable,) the developers offer frequent ads that in turn boost credit revenue or give the player free Genesis points (Pretty rare for devs to hand out special currency like that) and the ads aren't very intrisive either. The game doesn't require an internet connection so it can be played on the go, the game will continue to change, so if you are playing a volatile world remember to pause when needed, and start on Mars, the easiest planet.
