Welcome to a romance in the village, or as they would say in German, Dorf Romantk. Words that make even more sense when we discover that the game has been developed by four Berlin developers. Are you ready for this relaxing building puzzle?
The premise is more than simple, we must build landscapes using the hexagonal tiles that we are coming out We place one, they give us another. So until the end of the pool of chips. During the course of the game, we were offer missions that will reward us with more tiles and thus lengthen the game. “Match 5 houses”, “Match +40 trees”, etc. With every placement we make, we will get points that, together with the type and size of the groups that we form (forests, towns, bodies of water and crops) will give us a final score. Do you know when in this type of tile game empty spaces start to appear because it is difficult to fit something in there? Well, being able to fill it in will give us more points than usual, keep that in mind in order to increase your records.
It has various game modes Apart from the classic that I just told you about. There’s a creative where the pieces are unlimited and there is no pressure of any kind. The fast modewhere we will have fewer pieces than usual. a difficult one where fewer missions appear and the difficulty curve is higher. Another monthly call, which have some presets or seed set throughout the month and we will have to compete with other people. Of course, at the time of writing this analysis, I do not see scores from other people (normal for having it before going on the market), nor do I see a ranking of friends. Presumably then it will appear with the day one patch or similar. Lastly, we have the creative way, where we will be the ones who set the configuration. More cities? Or do you want more woods to come out? Maybe you prefer fewer missions. Well, this is where you can adjust a game to your liking.
The team also proposes 17 challenges across all matches and modes with which to unlock new tiles and thus be able to increase the possibility of getting higher scores. In addition to aesthetic rewards like biomes, which change the colors of flora and buildings. Another smart move by the developers is that they have made the content of the tiles suits slightly to the adjoining ones to give it cohesion and make everything more organic. Speaking of visual taste, at the end of each game, we can move around the board to see the final result.
It has a soundtrack smooth, simple and relaxingwhich works in perfect harmony with a constant murmur of bird songs, lowing of cows, chickens, boats, trains… The sound aspect alone more than fulfills the purpose of de-stressing us.
The title supports the touch inputHowever, it is very anecdotal and is more for navigation through menus than for playing per se. I hope they improve it with a future patch, because it is an experience that screams to be played without controls. Another thing I missed was the not being able to control the vertical angle from the camera to one more overhead. Although it is a matter of getting used to it.
It is true that chance has a very important weight during the course of the game, which may very slightly mitigate with some vision of the future. But between the fact that there is no way to see what pieces exist or that there is no possibility to “save a tile” for later, competitive strategy is a more secondary aspect. Ergo if you are looking for a more thoughtful experience, you will not find it here. Here you come to spend time quietly, to forget one of the problems. My maximum score is 9550 points. If you play it, leave your scores in the comments because, in the absence of an online ranking (at the time of writing this analysis), we can bite each other.
To conclude, an additional piece of information, and that is that if you think that Dorfromantik It would be ideal in physical format, you are in luck. Well, the renowned publisher of board games Pegasusannounced a board version of this title in this release.
