Inside Mac Games writer Ken Newquist has written a review of Cosmic Encounter Online (CEO), a digitized representation of the 1970s board game, and is available now on our webpage. As with others, the review covers everything from graphics to gameplay, and offers Ken's final verdict in our four scoring categories. Here's a snippit from the article:
Those are the basic rules, and in most games, players would be expected to abide by them. But Cosmic Encounter is not like most games -- its rules are meant to be broken. Each of the game's 21 playable alien factions has a different special power which allows it to break the rules in a unique way. For example the Calculator has the power to equalize -- after pods are revealed during an attack, it can "equalizes" them, reducing the value of the greater pod to that of the lesser. The Laser has the power to blind -- opponents facing the alien don't get to pick their encounter pods, instead one is randomly chosen for them. The Machine is relentless with its power to continue, which allows it to attack after every successful encounter, rather than the two assaults everyone else gets.For further insights, be sure to read the full review. You can find more information regarding CEO from the links below.
