Great idea, interesting execution, terrible control interface, mediocre graphics. Plus the developer falls into the same trap that far too many other game developers fall into, which is to the think that the way to make a game challenging and interesting is to give the player a modest number of really easy levels to lull the player into a false sense of security, and then hit them with a really impossible level out of nowhere that leaves the player scratching their head and asking "Why did this suddenly get so hard?"
The game is too easy, all you have to do is mass build fighters. The larger ships are horrible, don't even waste your time. I stomped hard mode with nothing but fighters. On top of that once you complete the game you can't even go back an play the missions you have to restart the game entirely. Skirmish is also a joke, one word fighters.
Fighters shouldn't be able to touch capital ships.
The game could be fun if fighters are balanced out and the chance to go back and play missions once you complete the game.
Like "Homeworld" on the PC :)
I was looking for something like "Homeworld" that I used to play on the PC. This is a nice simplified version of that. I'm having fun playing, though I wish there were more info on the types of ships that I am building. Could use a ship gallery or menu. I would rate higher if it had more info. There are a few levels near the end that are impossible. Not cool.
