Out of Fuel

I tried out the 7DRL game Fuel. It had a neat intro screen with cool graphics. The idea behind the game sounded cool too. As soon as I started the game, I found myself dead a lot. Turns out there must be some sort of gravity in this game. You need to turn on the fly upward. Looks like you die if you fall down at the wrong place.

This felt more like a side scroller with gravity than a roguelike. I never quite got the knack of powering my jet pack to fall around. It would conk out at inopportune times, sending me falling to my death. This was just no fun.

The game itself had some good music going on. Looks like it is an all Flash game. I guess the movement (or flying) mechanics just do not suit me.
