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.
This game has a lot of good things going for it, but it fails horribly in playability. Don't be fooled, this game is not developed enough to be enjoyable.
The ship combat is extremely simplified. Maybe that's alright, considering this game seems to be more about your crew. But there are very few tools to manage your crew. especially with enemy boarding and fires breaking out, etc., you need ways to quickly manage your crew. They give you none of this.
You have to individually find each crew member, and tell them what to do. To make them shoot the enemy, you need to send them to a room to change their status, and then send them out to fight. The same is true for healing others, or putting out fires or repairing. In the middle of all the action, you are forced to search the ship for each crew member, which they don't even give you a roster screen for, and then give individual commands for each. They don't even give artificial intelligence for your crew members to pursue the enemy in your ship, put out new fires as they appear, etc.
This game is silly micromanagement, micromanagement, micromanagement… With none of the tools or menus you would expect to be available for you.
I was terribly disappointed, especially considering how polished the game looked in their advertisements. Don't be fooled, this game is not developed enough to be enjoyable.
It's got potential.
This game could have been amazing. Quite frankly, they wasted it. Yes, yes it has no in app purchases(yet) and good music. But what they did with it is terrible. With the difficulties it's a joke, played through the game on the first 3. Easy means you will never take 1 point of hull damage, normal only means the same but your guns do a little less, not that it matters considering from the start on those two difficulties you have the shields of God for the rest of the game. On hard it is actually extremely difficult, which I like. The game takes about half an hour to complete with the smallest ship. They have many locations on the map, 25% are actually visitable, even though it prides itself on 'much content and massive map'. Yeah no. Another thing, the massive ships the size of factories shoot out this weak little children's toy of a stomp-rocket. If they fix the map, add more content, fix the combat, add a roster instead of tracking down every crew-member for commands, and maybe add a red blip where your ship is damaged, and give it a good polish overall, it will be a 10 stars game. At this point I do not suggest you to buy it, but keep an eye on it for updates.
