Explore the galaxy and and find solar systems. Populate the numerous planets and extract different raw materials. Build weapons platforms for defence and research centres to improve your skills. Friends of space strategy games will feel at home here, because colonization and research are core elements of the game.

The 4X approach of "eXplore", "eXpand", "eXploit" and "eXterminate" is supported by over 45 missions / quests of the areas of "Military", "Economy", "Exploration" & "Expansion". This means that the player is constantly faced with new challenges and once a player successfully completes a mission / quest, he is then rewarded with new build options, research points, the in-game currency called GEO or other various items.

The Fifo, a people of space nomads, had to make a stop in the normal space unintentionally. As they were leaving the meta space, a very destructive asteroid storm destroyed their ark ship.
The meager remains of the formerly proud nomadic people was forced to settle on the planet Kamolon. The Fifo want nothing more than to get back to their old life and return to the peace of the meta-space. But they need to find all the parts for a new ark ship. Can you help the Fifo people to find the parts of the ark ship? Only then they can return to their eternal journey through the meta-space.

Better graphics, but weaker game
Effectively the original AT with a facelift, AT2 is nevertheless a different game...and not in good ways. Universe size is now tied directly to difficulty level, which means if you want room to expand, you'd better be willing to play a difficult game. Availability of all stations and ships are gated, so you need to jump through hoops to earn everything but the most basic ships and stations. With research locked out until you earn your research stations, the game progresses painfully slowly for far too long due to inefficient ships, and you fall far behind the difficulty curve because you are actively prevented from improving what you have. Overall. The original Alien Tribe was a far more entertaining game even with weaker graphics. Still, this game can be fixed; all of its shortcomings are basic mechanics and balancing issues, all of which the devs can fix if they're so inclined.
This is an awesome 4X real-time strategy game
Alien Tribe 2 is the natural evolution of Alien Tribe 1 and it is an awesome real-time strategy game. Alien Tribe 1 was really good but AT2 is awesome.
The game has it all: a fantastic gameplay, good graphics & sound and great atmosphere. At the beginning the availability of some stations and ships is gated but if you try to solve the missions you will earn all the different ships and stations. It’s quite challenging at the first play but the more you play the more you will find out. Some hints: Try to get a solar storage and research center asap. And buy a Zeus wargun if have enough GEOs.
Overall: This is by far one the most entertaining game I’ve ever played on the iPad because it is different than most of the other games. And there is no In-App purchase. I would definitely buy it again.
If you like 4X real-time strategy then BUY IT!
UPDATE: The developers have removed the In-App purchase which makes this game even cooler. Thumbs up to the developers and their excellent game.
This game is definitely one of the BEST 4X real-time strategy space games on the App Store, and it is different compared to the other 4X games I played on the iPad. I liked Alien Tribe 1 but this game is so much better (Balancing, Sound, Graphic, new features etc.) that a 5 star rating is the only logical consequence.
Alien Tribe 2 is complex but it has a good helping system. Even the real-time strategy concept works very well and the 45 missions are cool and bring a lot of motivation to the game. Also the concept with the in-app currency GEO works because I found a few while playing. And I will collect or buy as much GEO as possible because I want to buy this new Zeus Gun.
To sum it up: Alien Tribe 2 is one of my favorite iPad games on the App Store. It’s excellent.
