  • Summary: Convoy is a tactical roguelike-like inspired by Mad Max and FTL in which you cross a wasteland in search of parts for your broken ship. Presented in pixel art and set in a future post-apocalyptic setting, Convoy is a squad based tactical combat roguelike-like in its core.

    An interesting roguelike RPG in a madmaxey sci-fiworld. The tactical car combat is fluid and addictive. Pretty much everything is a sci-fi reference, which can be a burden. [Aug 2015]

    Convoy name-checks some heavy hitting properties, but manages to be more than the sum of its parts.

    A sort of spiritual successor to FTL, Convoy is as fun as is sadistic, and will torture you with its challenges while keeping you interested and amused. The clear inspiration from Mad Max is only another virtue.

    It's fascinating but unbalanced, and fun can sometimes easily turn into frustration.

    Convoy had ambitions, that were not fulfilled by its narration nor by the game world elaboration, but the FTL-style gameplay is adapted perfectly.

    Convoy is an interesting FTL-style game who loves to punish you. The idea is very nice, the look is good, but there is a tiny edge between toughness and frustration, and Convoy passes it.

    There is no tactics, no strategy, no diversity, and, unfortunately, almost no similarities with the brilliant FTL.

    Отличная Игра в своем жанре
    по сути единственный в своем роде
    жаль что разработчики так и не улутшили игру

Lots of comparisons to FTL out there, and I really liked FTL, but this one seems a little more forgiving. It feels less about luck and more about skill. Its not particually long, but its not expensive either. I mean what can you say when the combat, outfitting your team, and pretty much everything is just fun. Expand

In fact, Convoy suffers from some of the similar issues to FTL (but to lesser extent, IMHO)- repetetivness and general lack of tactical depth. Expand

    I was about to write a long long review of the title - but decided now to just make a quick list of bad and good things.

    I was about to write a long long review of the title - but decided now to just make a quick list of bad and good things.

    the good:
    - nice theme
    - nice look - despite being yet another "pixel-art" game (yea, i do not like that style much, it reeks of the inability to come up with a proper design... pixel art can work, but only for a handful of games)
    - catches the humor and the idea of a mad-max theme well

    the bad:
    - poor performance for such a game
    - poor itemization and variety in weapons and equipment
    - encounters are a bit too much the same - and the AI simply stinks
    - very poor UI and ugly, ugly world screen

    all in all - it is not a bad basis if the devs work a little more on it, balance stuff out - add exciting weapons and equipment. Sadly though i do not think they can revise the combat mechanics - which really are just a simple tower defense with semi mobile towers.

Superficially, it's a coolI have trouble believing that any of the professional critics who reviewed this game played it for very long. Superficially, it's a cool little Mad Max game, built along similar lines to FTL. Once you've spent a couple of hours with it, the game dies under the weight of a wildly under sophisticated combat engine. Your main truck is just a fixture in the center of a highway that never curves or changes. Support vehicles can move around as satellites on a very basic grid. It's an auto combat game with no driving or maneuvering, only positioning within the confines of a hundred foot section of a seven lane road. As a result, the only thing you really do is choose which incoming vehicle to focus fire on, using a "variety" of weapons that don't actually do anything interesting enough to feel different. Sometimes a bad game can a good fit for a certain group of people, but, in this case, I'm not sure I could tell you who that group would be. People who find comfort in extreme repetition, perhaps. (Side note here for the tabletop people: If, like me, you are one of the Car Wars people... just move along. There is nothing to see here. You could buy five Hot Wheels and two six sided dice and come up with a far more entertaining game in 20 minutes.) I barely noticed myself playing 400 hours of FTL when it launched. I could not have made it to 4 hours with Convoy if you'd put a gun to my head. Profoundly disappointing. Expand

    In short, this game is primitive, lame, boring, has no tactics, no diversity.
