I got wrecked... but the gameplay is well paced and fun. The assistant is cool and helpful, I only wish it was equipped with a torch, too ahah. The soundtrack is nice and varied, there is voiceover for the robot and powerful abilities in your arsenal, to boot! You can turn defensive nodes into their reinforced counterpart, and even repair damaged ones. The enemies will keep you on your toes and you should use your time wisely to prepare for their arrival.
On first playthrough, I was able to acquire the meteors without issue before night fell and thus win, so I was a bit confused; then I waited a bit the second time and the aliens proved tough to beat, maybe too tough if playing alone (I never actually fought them off successfully, due to time constraints). I only found a warning for a missing texture, it's pretty stable.
Overall, I found this mini-game very original and polished, I can recommend it if played with your friends.
