    It's a more complete 10000000, offering so much improvement all around that it makes the original game feel like a demo.

    You Must Build A Boat is such a rare combination of frenetic speed and methodical planning that its closest relative might be Dark Souls.

    I highly recommend checking out You Must Build A Boat if you’re a fan of match-three puzzle RPG games, or if you loved the first one and have been waiting for the sequel.

    But all combined, YMBAB is the definitive way to play EightyEight Games’ unique puzzle-RPG-runner, and a notable advancement from the already great 10000000.

    You Must Build a Boat is a coherent follow up of the original concept, with a brilliant gameplay and some nice new elements.

    You Must Build A Boat is fun above all else with a compelling mechanic fit into an overreaching adventure that is well worth picking up.

    A creative take on the addictive “connect three blocks” formula. [08/2015, p.80]

    At first I liked how this game worked, but the thing that let me down was the speed and concentration required to play this game. This gameAt first I liked how this game worked, but the thing that let me down was the speed and concentration required to play this game. This game wants you focused 100% in it in order to be fast enough to accomplish some of its quests. That makes it unable to be played in public areas or with friends around. If you want a game that requires 100% speed and concentration from you this game is for you. Expand
