    Kapital Sparks of Revolution suffers from a few technical difficulties such as some bugs and mechanism ambiguities. However, it offers a wealth of options marrying aspects of Anno and Tropico series and newer titles like Frostpunk. The 2D late 90's aesthetic is superb and fits the character of the game. All in all, a decent indie game, we await more titles with even greater scope from Lapovich team.

    Building a city during a time of economic crisis is a challenge for all those who like management games but are not afraid of rebellion. The effort for a different approach to the management of the city is nice. On the other hand, the economy is very unbalanced and it is not easy to deal with it.

    Kapital isn't a bad game, but neither a good one. It offers a fair amount of buildings and mechanics, but nothing new or particularly interesting.

    This is a classic strategy game that can become unfair as a victim of its own class-oriented gameplay.

    Kapital: Sparks of Revolution is a perfectly serviceable city building game that attempts to add class struggle and other aspects such as state corruption and intervention into the mix. While it doesn't achieve everything it set out to do, the ideas are there and offer something interesting to play. Where it added some of these interesting ideas, it has also sadly skimped on other core areas; there is only one map, and the balance isn't great with the game constantly threatening to overwhelm you. All things considered, I'd still recommend it for fans of the genre, just with the knowledge that it isn't the most detailed and better options exist.

    Unlike the French Revolution, you’re most probably going to fail at subduing this rebellious town a number of times. Deep and challenging gameplay systems are unfortunately undermined by an authoritarian difficulty curve, lack of variety in presentation and a bland story. For would-be dictators however, there’s a city worth pulling up kicking and screaming from the dirt.

    I wanted Kapital: Sparks of Revolution to continue running with the city-survival genre that Frostpunkput into place, and while it is definitely the relaxing, low-stress city-builder of my dreams, it is not the difficult experience it markets itself as. You may struggle for the first hour or two before really settling into a utopian paradise, but you will get to that point of smooth sailing sooner or later. For a game about revolution, the only thing revolutionary here is how chill it is; Kapital: Sparks of Revolution is fun and addicting, but it’s hardly the stressful city-survival simulator it tries to be. I’m more than okay with that, but are you?
