    Good:
    - Lots of depth in trying to balance the two sides while fighting off Woes (think natural disasters in Sim City), bandits, and yourself.
    - The way the two sides are intentionally unbalanced is brilliant and adds a lot of strategy in planning your towns, miracles and moves.
    - I actually found myself attached to Blue due to their early underdog status and for the entirety of the
    game I coddled them while destroying Red while still playing as Red. It was a strange but awesome feeling.
    - Great music by Pablo
    - Lots of difficulty options and many variables
    - Low Price
    - Great tutorial for an Arcen game

    Cons:
    - It will never be as good as AI War (making 9 the highest score I give these days)

    You cannot deny this game it's complex and innovative. It's also ill-structured, twisted and hopelessly boring.

    Skyward Collapse is a game with simple mechanics, good interface and is visually pleasing, it's just not a lot of fun to play.

    A game of grand ideas, then, if not grand strategy. There is a core here that deserves further exploration. [Aug 2013, p.83]
