A fine game, well worth the price. No in app purchases (thanks for that). It obvious has potential to grow, but it is very playable and you can play through what I assume is the first chapter. Took me 6 hours or so total. Maybe more. I enjoyed it quite a bit. If I had any critique it's be that the story doesn't give you enough choices that matter in relation to the overall plot - though it does give you a lot of choices that change how each mission will play out. Also it needs a button to return the entire crew to their duties at once after a battle. (Needs to be done manually for each crew member right now.) I'm impressed overall. Way back in the dos days, a game like this would be 20x the price. Oh, and before I bought it I read one review saying that it was very easy. Not true. I think it's more a matter of your skill level. I found normal mode quite challenging at times. And another that made it sound like you had to do a lot of complicated stuff to get people to attack. That's just not true. When you first bring on new crew, you have to assign them a part of the ship and that will determine if they have combat duties. They will auto attack if an enemy comes in range or you can move them to attack manually. Summary: good game. Worth the purchase.
Not worth your money...
Star command is boring, bland, and poorly made sci-fi game. Some of the four ships you can choose from have bad texture issues that let you see the inside from the outside and when you start to upgrade your ship they will stick out like sour thumbs. All the ships are mostly empty with way too much walk room and they look really boring. The medium rooms for some reason can only hold the same amount of people as the small rooms. When you are in the long and boring ship fights the enemy seems to have an unlimited amount of soldiers to send to your ship where as your max can go up to 21. You don't have the option to teleport soldiers to the enemy ship either. The way the Health works is that your shield gets broken by a pebble and then flames engulf you ship causing damage to systems and possible death to crew members(I like this) and your shield regenerates fairly quickly. On the other hand, the enemy's ships have a huge amount of shield and hull. You can't damage particular systems on their ship and you can kill their crew members unless one of their unlimited guys go on your ship. Your ship can be crippled but theirs can't. It's not really adventurous, you are on your boring looking ship the entire game. The story is boring and predictable, there are only three systems you can visit, and the combat is just you waiting the ridiculously long cool down time for your cannons. Go spend your money on out there.
Best space-RPG for iOS
This is probably the best space related RPG games out there for iOS. The ability to control all units is extremely helpful when under attack, and helps players actually get involved in the storyline instead of going along with it like other iOS games. The weapons controls are a bit tricky to learn, but adds to the excitement and tension when battling another spaceship. However, the main story is a bit short, and somewhat easily predictable. The main storyline seems like the first episode of a space-sci fi show, and kinda kills your soul when it ends. It would be nice if the game had "episodes" which put you in different scenarios. Now I'm not saying restart the player with a new ship and different storyline, I'm saying when the player beats the first story,a tab on the side of their screen lets them select a story, then the game will act accordingly to that story. Such as a message will pop up telling you to explore a new solar system or galaxy that is uncharted, then you save the world or universe from whatever. This is an amazing game that should be bought right away. It still looks like a work in progress app, but I have faith much more is to come.
