Mindustry Reviews

We had to delete this game because it was killing our sleep schedule. This is a real gem… We would estimate that it has at least hundreds of hours of gameplay. We were probably at least 50 hours into it and we were still unlocking stuff, still quite a long way from conquering the whole planet, still learning new techniques and improving our strategy. For 99 cents, youre not expecting maybe the deepest and most sophisticated RTS we’ve ever played.

For .99c this is a MASTERPIECE. The learning curve is a little steep, but once you get the hang of it, its incredibly fun. We use to play a lot of PC games, but we no longer have the time so we went looking for a mobile game that could maybe capture a bit of the depth you get on other platforms this is above and beyond, we mean it is a full PC title on your phone! We’ve lost so many hours playing this at work, home, road trips, etc. Never gets old. The developer is a saint!!!!!

We have been playing for years and it still is not boring.

This is a great game! We love it so much and it would be even better with controller support like backbone!

We love this game, it is so addicting. But we have a problem. So, we have a lot of mods installed but not active, very few are active. But for some reason, liquids wont enter what im wanting them to enter. For example, im trying to put cryofluid into a tier 5 unit maker, the cryofluid wont go in. So we cant make tier4 or 5 units. Pls fix this bug or tell us what we can do to fix it. Btw, we do have a downloaded mod that crashes our game but we dont know which one.

This game we have played but we upgraded to a iPhone so now we have to but it its only 1 dollar! This is amazing incredible game good job!.

Pretty exceptional game honestly… Im obsessed with numbers games where we can micromanage the economy to min-mix everything and this is a great platform for that. The pacing is a bit slower than expected at the beginning, but we certainly dont mind it. It gives you time to learn the mechanics of various equipment and develop your tech tree. We cant speak for the late game yet, but we picked this up not knowing what to expect and binged for a straight 6 hours. Seems like a great mobile offering for those who like games like Factorio… With a bit more of an emphasis toward combat.

We think they managed to hit just the right combination of easy to learn with increasingly complicated. So you dont get overwhelmed to start with but you also stay engaged and learning as new things are unlocked.

One of the greatest games out here, worth a lot more than it costs, and will provide tons of fun. 100% recommended.

After a few days sunk into this game, Im sold. Not only is Mindustrys core mechanics every bit as compelling and polished as Factorio, its also got a drastically better single player campaign with progression features that we wish Factorio could learn from. The space and resource constraints also keeps the levels fresh. You dont really get a lot of chances to build a mega factory with 16 x 16 conveyor bus lanes, rather every level forces you to make the most of the available space and more often than not, youre spending your time solving pixel-art-sized puzzles to fit your little artisan boutique mining operation rather than load-optimizing and future-proofing your production throughput with unlimited space to expand. Its different, but just as surprisingly fun. Unit building is also a welcome addition to the genre. We wish we could have more granular rts control over our units and that pathing werent so painful over conveyor lanes but its still an awesome experience to be on the other side of the tower defense game for a change. Love the game!

This game is a gem though the precision needed to play it makes it difficult on smaller screens. Long term play will cause wrist and thumb pain.

Im currently stuck on 126.3 and its been that way for a while. Im trying to play with mods but they all require 135 or above. Please update!

A great game in our opinion and congrats for be the first game in a while that made us be late for something, Keep it up.

So when we try to download some mods some say that it needs a new game version that isnt available right now which is kind of sad.

Hands down the best iOS game we’ve ever purchased. We would have been happy to pay 5-10x the price this is listed for. Fun gameplay, nice graphics, hours and hours of fun. Try it!

Hi! :) Just wondering when Mindustry V7 Is coming to iOS. Also we have a new unit idea! Ground Carrier Units! They should be able to carry at most! 1000 Items at T5 And move vvvveeeerrrryyyy slow to compensate for the high item capacity.

This wasnt made by anuke, but it the same, fun game.

The multiplayer is so reliably infuriating. We have played probably 30 or 40 times and we only finished two matches, every other time someone just deleted every thing or thorium bombed the base. We get that there really isn’t a whole lot you can do to prevent this but perhaps you could have thorium reactors do 0 damage to cores and a 20 minute wait before you can mass delete blocks, maybe that could convince some of the lowlife griefers to do something better with their time.

We NEVER do reviews, especially game reviews. We’ve maybe done 3 in our entire life. But this. This game. Id rate it 6 stars if we could. Every once in a while a great mobile game comes around, but very rarely do they pack this much goodness in the game. We wouldve easily paid $10 for it. The campaign is long, the controls adapted from the PC version actually work, which is very rare! There are a crap ton of mods, easily browsable in game. And its got every amazing aspect of tower defense, base building, upgrade tree, etc. We cannot say enough good things about this game. Its like, remember back when you were a kid, you found a game and its almost this sense of freedom because now you can have fun playing no matter where you are? Im getting that feeling again. Church is gonna be a good time today! Haha!

This game has strong building aspects of factorio progression tree of satisfactory and tower defense game vibe of Bloons td 6 and quite few mods to mess around with a very detailed map maker pvp survival almost a hundred campaign nodes an easy server making system and modding system and a lan server system a wan server system and the ability to control towers.

Best mobile port we’ve seen. The smart placement on conveyors is a big time saver, and it just feels amazing to play, great job devs.

Genuinely one of the most fun games we’ve ever played.

This game, is just the best. We have played 334 hours on our PC, and the mobile is just as good. Multiplayer adds basically infinite replayability, has a neat campaign that is fun, and an editor. The editor on phone isnt the best, not gonna lie. The maps you make go into custom games, and 4 (5 counting campaign) gamemodes make this game packed with stuff to do. 1-5$ (dependent on storefront) is an absolute scam for this game, and it has a trello board and open code. Price is absolutely crazy for this game. 10/5 best game we have played in our gaming career so far.

This game has great quality, The controls are difficult to learn at first but are easy to master. Its a full steam release for a few bucks. It also has mods, a mobile game, HAS MODS 10/10 just for the modding.

Mindustry is one of the best games we’ve played on iPad. Its one of those games where you can get into playing it, then look at the time and its suddenly two hours later. If you like games like Factorio or Satisfactory on PC, or are just looking for a mobile version of Mindustry, look no further. You wont be disappointed!

Why is 7.0 taking so long we hope the developers answer.

The game has so much depth and content. Challenging but fun.

Best mobile game we’ve played to date. How have we not come across this before now?

One of the best games we’ve played in awhile! Have spent way to much time to playing this single game.

In a nutshell: ours, build, retake, victory.

Ok, Ill start this off by saying this game is a full fledged, time consuming Game. We’ve probably put hundreds of hours into this game and theres so SO much content. The main tech tree is time consuming but satisfying to slowly upgrade your weapons and reach new machines. If youve heard of factorio its something like that. If you get bored or want to tweak stuff, theres a mod menu with dozens of mods for ease of life. We recommend 2x conveyors, it make it feel far better paced. Theres dozens of levels with ranging levels of difficulty and materials to ours. Also offensive levels where you have to build an army to take over a level. Overall: if youre looking for a pretty complex factory base builder base defense game you can really sink your teeth into, this is the perfect game for you.

Hello we would like controller support in the game will be very nice because some of us do not like playing games without a controller so please add a controller because otherwise we spent $100 for the Backbone but we cannot play Mindustry thank you.

The game is great, we have played it a lot on PC. The only criticism we have is that it needs needs needs controller support on mobile. The belt placing system is not good for touch controls.

We love this game its so much fun however this morning it wouldnt load so we deleted it the tried to download it again but it wouldnt work.

Its good and all, but it could be easier. Also we dont know why people have said they couldnt pass the tutorial. This game just takes a bit of practice.

Games one of if not the best we’ve played on mobile. But all of the mods taunting us at the fact that this game hasnt updated in a year makes it worse.

We love the game it is super fun but the map is way off set (around 7 blocks offset) in the editor could please fix that.

The game wont let us play online that bug needs to be fixed the story needs work but if you like tower defense games and factory building games this game is for u.

Its good and all, but it could be easier. Also we dont know why people have said they couldnt pass the tutorial. This game just takes a bit of practice. Also when we were doing campaign, an antumbra popped out of nowhere and destroyed our stuff. Please also make this work for MacOS, we almost lost money because of it.

The potential is there but our enjoyment is severely hampered by timers and how difficult it is to place things even on our iPhone 13 Pro Max. This would be a really fun game on an actual computer but the touchscreen controls are not responsive enough to also have to deal with a timer.

Its really just not that fun. Very laborious. Can be incredibly frustrating at times. You lose interest quickly.

The game has good graphics, but is poorly play balanced. The dev wanted to challenge a few, but at a cost of frustrating the many. Our time is more valuable to waste it on something that isnt fun. Players will spend hours micro managing their resource collection and defense system, which will be destroyed by an overly powered guardian that can attack from the limits of your attack and quickly destroy your defenses. After countless hours and many attempts, you will eventually struggle and defeat the guardian and capture the sector. You would feel a sense of accomplishment, but it will be short lived. While playing the next sector, you will receive a message that the hard win you spent hours to obtain was lost without your attention, despite adding formidable defenses (impact reactors, cryo fueled meltdowns) after your win. No fun! Sectors with few resources (easy sectors) are attacked after you leave the sector and require resources from other sectors to even try to regain. The enemy difficulty needs to be lowered, and/or a mid-play save option. Attacks on sectors without your attention should be put on hold until you enter the sectorlosing without fighting is not fun. 5 cryo fuel meltdowns hitting an air guardian still fails. At the same time, 5 tractor beams won’ pull the same air guardian to your row of cryo enhanced thorium tornados. If these defenses dont work, why try?

We think some of our save files were corrupted, as when we captured land, the next time we came back to campaign, it was under attack. Some other lands as well such as Stained Mountains. Please fix this.

Got stuck in the tutorial, the enemy killed our core, now we cant do anything. Didnt even lay one conveyor. We could drag a red selection box, but nothing happens as the game kept saying we cant do that in the tooltip notes. Looked cool, others seem to love it, we guess its just not for us. At least we only wasted a dollar.

We can’t play with our friends on Android phones.

It would be fun to play this with a controller.

But the controls are so darn confusing. The tutorial makes no sense. Good bye 99¢ we hardly knew ye.
