From the makers of critically-acclaimed "Project Phoenix" comes a new, exciting creation. "Ultraviolet Dawn" is a hybrid space-shooter/trading game with a completely open Universe comprising over 1,000 stars to explore. "Ultraviolet Dawn" is our most beautiful and refined game to date. Please note that the Lite version is limited to five space flight levels.
There is no single predefined way to play - everything is entirely up to you. You chose what you want to be and how you want to play. You can be a peaceful merchant, shuttling goods between stars. You can be an outlaw, attacking innocent ships and capturing their cargo. You can be a smuggler, trading in illegal goods banned by the the Intergalactic Federation. You can even run missions, both legal and illegal.
There is so much to the game. Not only can you upgrade your ships weapons, but you can also upgrade equipment, such as adding more powerful engines or faster regenerating shields. You can even trade your ship in and fly something else entirely, whether a captured pirate ship or a large, bulky cargo carrier.
* Be good or evil: peaceful trader, independent bounty hunter, or a pirate outlaw - the choice is completely yours.
* Over 1,000 stars in an entirely open-ended universe to explore.
* 8 different ships to pilot.
* Unique goods trading system, with realistic demand and supply price calculations.
* Ability to hire teammates for help, with teammate formations provided.
* Fully upgradeable weapons systems.
* Upgradable ship equipment systems - engines, shields, and much more.
* Three difficulty levels.
* Local and global high scores.
* Savable at any point in time.
* Intense, driving music and awesome sound effects.

This is reminiscent of my favorite i-game, The Void. It's like a more action-packed version of The Void, albeit with some nagging issues. First, the missions have zero background. Go here, do stuff. Mission progress? Negative. Very specific mission goals? Negative. Plus the ability to fire on friendly ships is a bit clunky. Warpgate makes the line between friend and foe clearer. Perhaps the background is a little too busy - sometimes the ships are a bit hard to discern. Tone down the background with more star field effects rather than a big galaxy background and it will be much better. Overall, this game is poised to do very well with a few specific tweaks.
Pretty and fun game, reminds me a lot of the classic Mac game Escape Velocity, but without the same depth of gameplay. The text overlays while in flight are too small to read sometimes, especially with the background being as fancy as it is. The combat is solid and fun, I think with a better variety of missions it could be a great game.
Its sucking my life away
This game is super cool. It reminds me of flat space. Its not evryday that i find a new app that makes me wanna play on my ipad for hours at a time. I hope the developer will come out with new weapons and ships. Though ive barely scraped the surface, i can barely wait to see what else is in store for me...great.
