    Regardless of how well-received their initial product was, Halcyon 6: Lightspeed Edition is an evolution of it.

    Halcyon 6: Lightspeed Edition is very much (if not only) a sum of its parts; luckily, Massive Damage made sure that each of those parts is well-executed. Hopefully, the developers continue their momentum and keep adding gameplay elements; with more variation in crew selection, the ability to actually build a ship with components you gather, and an expansion of the world in which the game persists, Halcyon 6: Lightspeed Edition can be a triumph.

    Free (for original game owners) remaster of the brilliant pixel-art star-trecky game brings many cosmetic enhancements. The campaign, among other things, has also a faster pace, an appropriately officers unit, automatic material collection and a new interface. Still, it would help a lot if the game could offer a possibility of sandbox and an option to run the game in slower mode. Core fans of the original game, however, will receive a polished gem with a promise to the future, so they can add one point to the score.

    Halcyon 6: Lightspeed Edition is a decent update to a game that always had promise, but it’s still not for everyone. Rebuilding the Federation, making allies, making enemies, and all the choices I had to make were all compelling, but honestly the combat didn’t thrill me and happened just that little bit too often. If you don’t mind this as much, then the Lightspeed Edition is a good time, just not quite an essential purchase.

    Uninspired, remaster edition, which brings minimum changes, so the success goes to the original game. Fine choice for new players, for others something they can skip easily. [Issue#277]
