Under pressure. We review Forbidden Desert and Myrmes, two games that ask players: how well can you manage a crisis? In Forbidden Desert the challenge is to reassemble an ancient flying machine before a sandstorm buries your team. In Myrmes, you are the queen of an ant colony trying to survive the winter.
