Our technology is slowly coming to terms with outer space, and with the growing technology we have, it’s only a matter of time before we completely discover everything about it. Contact is a game about a little ship collecting samples of meteorites, and that’s totally it. It’s simple and quick, but with varying difficulties and very challenging gameplay.
Contact is a game that lets you control a little spaceship that needs to collect different samples of meteorites in space. You do this by dodging the other meteorites that you don’t need, as this will kill your spaceship. How do you know, then, which ones would be good to use as samples? Their importance can be seen because of the colors, and the difficulty that you are playing in. The Easy difficulty gives you the task of only collecting blue samples, and anything that is red is a bad meteorite that will destroy you if you get hit by 5 of them. In medium, you will need 2 samples, blue and yellow. Finally, in hard mode you will be tasked with getting 3 different samples, which is blue, yellow and green. You use your mouse to move around, so wherever your cursor is, that is where your spaceship is. And oh, you can’t just get samples all willy nilly, you would have to change the orientation of your ship if you want to collect a different colored sample. You will initially be blue, but when you press on your left mouse button, you will change your color and will be able to pick up samples of the color you changed to, and picking up anything that is different from the color of your ship will damage your ship. Each level will give you a certain amount of samples you need to collect, which you can find out by looking at the top of the screen. You’ll see how much you have collected and how much you need to collect, so always keep your eye on this part of the screen while also dodging any bad meteorites.
Contact is a very good game, a bit deep, but very fun. It takes a great amount of skill to get to the end of the game for each of the difficulties. Even the easy difficulty takes quite a lot of skill to finish! If you are looking for a fun little challenge while playing a very simple game, then Contact is one of the best games to go with!
