The final french fried-tier! Set out on an intergalactic voyage of discovery, adventure and potato-based puns in Holy Potatoes! We're In Space?!, combining hard-boiled battles, mashed management and scalloped simulation into a dish that's out of this world! We're in Space?! Is ostensibly a sequel to Holy Potatoes!A Weapon Shop?!, but that isn't the first game that springs to mind upon playing it. Yes, this is another isometric mid-core strategy-management game from Daylight Studios, and it's set in the same anthropomorphic vegetable universe.
Space sims have a tough challenge to overcome, regardless of whether we are talking about a huge studio or an indie production with a tiny budget. However, there are many ways to work around the complexity of space, and one of them is to approach the subject with humor. Roguelikes are very popular among gamers as well, since it’s quite fun to put your patience to the test.
Holy Potatoes! We’re in Space?! is a roguelike space sim with turn-based combat mechanics and a few other ingredients that keep you busy for many hours. It obviously draws inspiration from titles like Faster Than Light, but it also brings its own ideas to the table, so the overall experience is very engaging. Thus, it’s the perfect way to kill some time every now and again.
There are multiple things to worry about as you cruise through the main story, including the combat aspect, ship upgrades and exploration. You have to deal with a bit of randomness in regards to exploration and the events your crew goes through, but they usually do not feel very repetitive, which is good. Furthermore, the crew also has certain requirements you have to keep an eye on.
As it’s to be expected, cruising through space in search of trouble takes its toll on your ship, so repairs are in order whenever you have the time. You have a limited number of turns to make use of, on the other hand, so it’s fairly tricky to plan ahead sometimes and make sure you take care of every detail. On the other hand, there’s an easy mode that does not feature this restriction, which comes in handy if you lack patience.
The battles are not very complex in terms of mechanics, but they are not simple either. Weapons and shields must be used in combination to get out alive, so there’s quite a bit of strategy involved as well. Lastly, the graphics are colorful and enjoyable, especially when it comes to the artwork. Every ship is unique and very detailed, and so are most of the environments.
In the end, Holy Potatoes! We’re in Space?! is funny, challenging and enjoyable even after a few hours of gameplay. Furthermore, the easy mode allows anyone to have a good time, even if you are not experienced in the genre or you lack the patience to start over every other few minutes.
