PULSAR: Lost Colony is a fantastic idea for a game, always has been but it lacked a good experience for new players and it was easy to bounce off it. Giving each player a dedicated role on a spaceship, this co-op game can be a lot of fun.
Shouting orders at each other with one playing as the Captain and others as the Pilot, Scientist, Weapons Specialist and Engineer it can be quite a riot. If you've always wanted to be part of a crew and travel the galaxy together, this is a fun choice.
Thankfully, now you actually get a proper full tutorial to teach you the ropes. Take a look:
In addition to a full tutorial, there's now an in-game tips system too. They show up when loading and respawning, from a random pool of tips. Personally, I like games that do this, however many don't use it very well and give you the most basic of advice - hopefully here they will tell you things that aren't so obvious.
A major visual addition in the latest update also adds in Moons, sadly you can't walk around them like planets but they're a nice graphical improvement seen from space and the surface of the companion planet. Just that little bit of extra eye-candy.
Great to see PULSAR continue to expand, as a big fan of space sci-fi it's been fun to watch this grow from a real basic game into a huge co-op space adventure.
