1971 PROJECT HELIOS – Review


1971 Project Helios, developed by the Spanish team Reco Technology, is a strategy turn-based game with RPG elements. You are in 1971, in a planet Earth affected by a permanent winter after an important cataclysm, where the population is low and it´s clung to the Fulgor, a new energetic resource, to survive. The last hope resides in the scientific Margaret Blythe, who has developed the Project Helios, a project which makes possible the Earth´s recovery. However, she was kidnapped by people with different future plans, which will lead her to being rescued by an alliance of 2 groups, a total of 8 characters, each one which different motives but united by the needed of rescue Dr. Blythe.



1971 Project Helios is an interesting turn-based strategy game with some nice RPG elements based in the eternal winter postapocaliptic escenario. The combat system is based in the classical strategy grid, with some fresh tweaks, like the Fulgor use, but some points like the flat characters, the graphics, of the absence of some options in the camera, make other games better options within the genre, but you can give it a try, you will probably enjoy it.

Score: 7.5/10
