Critic Reviews for Merchant of the Skies


7 / 10.0

Merchant of the Skies is just disappointingly flat. It's enjoyable enough to play through — once. However, after you've accumulated your wealth, there's little left to be done. Another layer of challenge would have done the game a world of good, but as it stands, it's just a one-way trip.

Merchant of the Skies has some rough edges, but the overall experience is an engrossing one, scratching a variety of gaming itches at once since it fuses resource management together with tycoon elements and base building. The controls and presentation are a tad clumsy on Switch, but the sense of discovery in this off-kilter world is fun. I enjoyed spending time in this world.

Merchant of the Skies is a neat trading simulation game, with relaxing game play. Though I don’t think the game allows for much of a replay after you have finished the campaign mode. There is a sandbox mode to play around with, but once I’d played and completed the campaign mode I’d basically completed everything the game has to offer. There isn’t anything particularly new in the game, however, the gameplay that Merchant of the Skies offers is engrossing and an enjoyable experience all the same.
