Very good

I was searching for something similar to Master of orion this game does the job.

Seems scientifically correct to me


Pleasing when you see your planet grow life atmosphere clouds and oceans. The time investment was worthed (2-3 days on Mars).

Seems enough scientifically correct to me and makes me wonder whether we would do some of these stuff in the future.

Awesome and addictive

Awesome and addictive however its a battery killer. Needs to be optimized for battery life. My 6s gets all hot and battery flies down
