Mobile Game Simulator 2017 but good.
Turmoil feels like a mobile game, the audience for it is precisely that of a mobile game, gamers,non-gamers, grandparents, small children, reluctant “forced by bf/gf” gamers, you name it, it appeals to everyone on a very basic level, while its not overly flashy or impressive, it is very well made with great mechanics and a fantastic art style, I find myself coming back to again and again if only for short 10 minute playtime.
Just because it looks, acts and feels like a mobile game doesn’t mean its not worth a play, gamers of all walks need to open their minds to a full array of games these days, as the massive variety of possible playstyles and clever mechanics available in games you may not even give a chance could surprise you with their quality and potential for fun..
Everyone needs a change of pace.
While I am not a hardcore gamer of the variety that games for 72 hours straight and lives off Red Bull and cheese puffs, I am a pretty serious gamer, I like the big names, I own pretty much every new Big Indie and AAA release, I would have never have thought this would be my type of game, and on a large scale it certainly isn’t my type of game, but that doesn’t mean It cannot be a good time passer, I had several good hours in turmoil and didn’t regret them, I found it a good game to play while waiting for my other games to patch or that AFK raider to get his butt back in front of his PC, with such a small download and memory footprint its the game I run in a window and play between rounds of my real game, and that’s ok, its the bread roll of gaming, not the main course but pretty tasty as you wait.
There is a decent amount of challenge as you progress through the game, enough to keep you having to think or face bankruptcy, the mechanics are simple to learn, but you are a challenge to master.
Worth a purchase?
Depends what you are looking for, for serious gamers its not going to scratch that itch, there are a lot better serious economic strategy games out there, but for those who want to experience a fun and engaging little title, that is very much a perfect example of an indie Title then you cannot go wrong with Turmoil.
