Amazing Discoveries In Outer Space is a charming game, with a some flaws. What we have here is a deceptively challenging game wrapped in a slightly sarcastic package, with a few rough edges. Gameplay can be slow going at the start, and casual gamers will likely lose interest relatively early on. But then, casual gamers probably have little or no interest in such a quirky game as ADIOS.
If you’re a fan of games like Spelunky and FTL: Faster Than Light — roguelikes with a penchant for precariousness and uncertainty — you owe it to yourself to give Amazing Discoveries in Outer Space a shot. It’s an inventive game that skillfully captures the perils and intrigue of space exploration, wrapping it up in an endlessly replayable package.
Despite that minor low, the rest of the game is full of highs, from the planets so close that the rotation makes the sun pull you away from it, to the fact that you can repair some objects to suck energy from them. The graphics are all small, and appear to be hand-drawn, but it works well playing on either a 32 inch HD TV or remote playing on the Vita. There is plenty for you to discover in ADIOS, including secret levels, so even if you’re not chasing a higher position on the leaderboards there is plenty of reason to keep playing.
