07/12 || Bonus Box Car || Atom RPG || Thanks Alephcat

So this game was a gift from alephcat which makes me kinda sad I really didn't enjoy major aspects of it. This game is 100% trying to be the original Fallout games modernized and with a russian coat of paint, but I can't for the life of me find the modernization. Almost all the mechanics are taken from the original fallout games but are somehow less good. Like aimed shots, in the OG fallouts doing an aimed shot usually cost some extra action points and enabled you to select a specific part of the body to target and opened a new menu for it, meanwhile a non aimed shot just auto fired at the part of the enemy's body you had the best chance to hit.

In Atom RPG instead an aimed shot still costs more ap and even gives you a higher chance to hit the body but instead of a menu you get this weird dial option where you need to keep holding mouse then let go over the part of the body you want to shoot at.

And then don't get me started on the crafting, idiot me wanted to get a pistol so I wasn't just getting a 30% chance to hit with a 3 damage kick, I made a zip gun just fine and then without thinking tried to make the ammo and managed to "waste" the 1 gunpowder in the entire starting town.

What I'm saying is this game is fine, though it seems to have created issues in the name of progress and I found some of the writing to be some chauvinistic tosh and while I get why people have enjoyed it, I'm not sure I want to come back to it, but it did drive me to go back and play Fallout 1 again.

I know I didn't always have the nicest things to say about this game but if it turned out Atom RPG looks like it's your sort of game then consider picking it up.
