Well, someone is a big fan of the Hitch-Hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. Relativity is a game that applies Einstein’s Theory of Relativity in its gameplay. The game itself is almost like one of the civilization/colonization games that we’ve all come to know and love. You start out on your home planet and must build ships and invent faster engines and better weapons in order to take over the galaxy and universe.
The graphics here are really quite interesting. You have your universe which is made up of a grid. Planets and stars and other ships take up the space within the grid. The heavier the planet or ship the more gravity it produces and shows on the grid.
The sound is excellent. With the music and narration, you really get into the game. The sound effects are very good as well.
You can tell a lot of work went into the making of this game and it shows. Not only do you have the standard space-faring type of gameplay required here but you learn the rules behind Einstein’s Theory of Relativity. Truly a game that must be owned and played. This one definitely gets a good grade from me.
