Convoy: A Tactical Roguelike
Developer: Convoy Games
Publisher: Triangle Studios
Genres: Adventure, Strategy, Roguelike
The retro era style of graphics and gameplay that’s best enjoyed in short bursts is a good fit for the mobile platform. It may not be as exciting as a flamethrowing guitarist chasing down folks escaping from a post-apocalyptic dictator, but it's still a refreshing take on a genre looking for a new lease on life.
To be clear, I quite enjoyed Convoy but I enjoyed the PC version far more. I purchased Convoy on Steam after playing the review copy from the publisher and had a much better experience. Convoy still presents a challenge in its PC form, but it’s the challenge that Convoy Games intended players to experience.
On the whole, Convoy is a fun-enough game to play. But rather than making me want to play Convoy more, it made me want to play other games similar to Convoy, instead. It pulled me into the concept again and how much I enjoy it, but not the game itself, which is a shame. I went into Convoy with a nostalgic hype from the days where I played FTL a lot more, but rather than being surprised and hooked, I was a little disappointed.
