Review by David Welbourn (originally posted at Baf's Guide)

Wreckage is part of the author's series of games that takes place in the Sun Empire. You've managed to survive the destruction of your spaceship, but your escape pod is damaged. Worse, all the wreckage is caught in the gravity well of a nearby star. You'd better fix things quickly and get out of there.

The game's main flaw is not just guess-the-verb, but also guess-the-noun, and because of that, the game is far more frustrating to play than it should have been. Hint: if you can't refer to something in the plural, try refering to it in the singular.

Rating: ⭐️⭐️
