Ambrosia Software’s classic game Escape Velocity still ranks as one of my all-time favorite Mac game experiences: As the captain of a tiny spaceship you explore the universe, amassing wealth and allying yourself with friends, making enemies, eventually scoring larger ships, more passengers and gaining the ability to travel farther out into the reaches of outer space than ever before. That’s much of the same experience that makes Weird Worlds: Return to Infinite Space such a delightful diversion, though, fortunately, you don’t need the days, weeks or months you need to play completely through Escape Velocity. In fact, you can have a very satisfying round of play in 30 minutes or less.
In the end, Weird Worlds has enough going on that it's hard not to like something about it. The content and audio are quirky, the graphics are sharp and the game is quick. However, the built-in gameplay options turn out to be pretty thin and replay will really depend on how enamored gamers are with getting the highest possible point total by game's end. Mods breath great life into the title and should provide many ways to extend the lifespan of the title. What I had trouble getting over, though, was just how much of the title is available in the demo. There's virtually nothing left to discover in the full version from the demo beyond longer games (and therefore larger universes).
