Critic Reviews for For Sparta

For Sparta is fine once you accept its general simplicity. The attempts at adding depth, such as the enemy variance and the multitude of power-ups, work rather well, even if it veers toward silliness, and the core gameplay remains tight and easy to understand. The lack of actual variety in the backdrop can become problematic, and the lack of any real progression can be a deterrent for those who aren't into classic high score chases. For those who are, For Sparta is worth looking into, especially considering the low $1.99 price tag.

For Sparta is a small but mighty game with a ferocity to honor its namesake. The gameplay is fantastic, and it very cleanly side steps the repetitive pitfalls the genre sometimes falls into. Its laser-focused direction does it a lot of favors. It’s not a long-term grinding game with a billion things to unlock, and it doesn’t try to be.

Playing For Sparta automatically reminded me of those endless minigames that we played as kids that increased the difficulty as we progressed. This formula still works well these days and this game brings a high level of difficulty as we survive the days. Combinations of opponents become increasingly challenging, requiring skill from the player and a bit of luck finding good improvements. Eventually, you will be more than familiar with all types of opponents, and the only the goal becomes achieving the highest score possible. This can diminish interest in the title, but without invalidating its potential.
