Great fun at a low price. There is a learning curve, but I am 80 so probably a little slow these days. Just stick to the quests for a while, and you will be OK. I usually play first person shooters, but thought I would give this a tr
y and I am glad I did. It is early release, but I have not had a crash or glitch up until now, so it can only get better.

Review from Steam

I'll start off, this isn't a strong recommendation. It's right on the line where I had to stop and think if I actually would recommend the game.
Volcanoids gives just enough content to be worth it's price. As an early access, I can say that yes they are good about updating and improving though I believe there was a long time when not enough content was a big problem. At this point it's at a good balance of content vs price.
Pros:
This game really is great about the Steam Punk feel. Everything copper'd out and mechanical.
Progression is fun and challenging.
The drill ship is pretty epic and can become HUGE.
There's a decent mod workshop that has fun additions.
The devs are progressively improving.
Map is pretty big and multilevel.
Cons:
The mechanics are a bit different and hard to catch on to with crafting and technology.
Once you do start progressing, progression is very quick (too quick) from 0 to hero.
The game is a bit short without extra content or side missions to enjoy.
Limited scenery. A lot is just duplicates made harder by more enemies.
Building is restricted to just your ship, no where else.
Combat is pretty clunky. I can't put my finger on it directly, but this definitely isn't a fast paced smooth FPS.

Already halfway through the game, it's honestly a work of art, it could use some additions but it is really amazing. I highly encourage you to buy this game if you have the PC and the money.

Review from Steam

What's good:
- If you play survivals, you'll enjoy the first few hours of exploring, crafting and combat.
- It's a nice change to fight robots and a volcano -- instead of the usual zombie horde.
- I'm enjoying the beginning stages, having one ongoing multiplayer game with a friend, and another solo.
But: there does seem to be a lack of content.
What its missing:
- I want to customize my hotbar. If you're holding 2 items that are assigned to button 4, you can only use one of them.
- Multiplayer is limited. There is only one quest line. You're forced to stick with your friend and progress together. I want more than one drillship in multiplayer mode. Can you imagine if a game like Minecraft forced people to stay together at all times? It wouldn't work. This game could be much more enjoyable if we could build our own drills and explore separately.
- Balancing single player vs multiplayer. There seems to be the same number of foes in both game modes; I would have expected more robots in multiplayer and less in single player.
My advice:
- Buy this when it's on discount, and enjoy it for a few hours.
