Cosmos Quickstop Review (Steam)

For this Cosmos Quickstop Review, we attempt to run the fast-paced thrill of managing a gas station… IN SPACE! Upgraded our services, pleased alien customers, and completed our daily chores through simple minigames that add up to a hilariously frantic experience with solo or couch co-op play.

Summary

You are the sole worker in a galactic gas station and must refuel, wash and help in any way the many needs of the customer. What will surprise you is just how fast-paced and well executed this all is. Within minutes you will have the layout of the station down, the controls and general mechanics, and even a little hint at the stress. Cosmos Quickstop is a game that combines Warioware with stress and not just a bit of stress, prolonged exposure to stress that will push you every second. I love how it all comes together and the variety of the tasks, the way you upgrade and unlock new amenities means you always have the hook of wanting to be better and go faster. I’m gonna say it again tho, it’s a stressful game and one I could only handle for a while then I had to take a break. It was hard to build motivation to go back however as it is such an ordeal that you almost need caffeine just to boot the game up! It is a great game though and is polished so well and executed to a smooth stress-inducing experience.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
