    It’s almost like a hybrid of Tetris and Star Command, yet it’s much more relaxing, hence the “meditative” part of the description. It features elements of base-building, tower-defense, and puzzle, all in one complete package.

    Its simplicity allows players to focus on the big picture aspects of building, directing, and growth, while its puzzle-like room construction adds a layer of complexity that encourages different approaches each playthrough.

    Using simple building mechanics, sparse hands-off combat, and just a light smattering of overall goals to achieve, Rymdkapsel’s gameplay reinforces its presentation to offer a clever and challenging experience.

    Accessible and engaging, Rymdkapsel puts a fun retro-minimalist spin on a familiar genre – a perfect combination for gobbling up your free time.

    There is almost nothing bad I can say about Rymdkapsel. Everything is simple, minimal and cut down. I can hardly think of how the game would function if one of the room-types were removed for the sake of implementing something else.

    The implementation of minimalist strategy is brilliant really, with clever systems that are fun and challenging to learn. And while the experience is short-lived after you have learned everything, it's a unique experience that is well worth taking the time to master.

    Rymdkapsel is a special strategy game for your tablet or phone. Play it for fifteen minutes and you'll end up confused. Play it longer and you'll imagine you're playing a classic RTS, without a story though. Rymdkapsel looks charming with its minimalistic graphics and limits itself to the essentials, but in the end this is also the reason why it plays like many other games in the genre.

    Short but relaxing game. Like tower defence yoga where you will become one with the cosmos.
    Wishing, however that you could have more than two minions in every defense bunker because after level 30 it´s almost impossible to survive.
    But a wonderful game, highly recommended! One tip is to not play it on your girlfriend's family dinner, I got the evil eye when I did that
