Report to the Bridge!
Artemis is a multi-player, multi-device networked game for IOS devices. IT IS NOT A SINGLE-PLAYER GAME; IT'S FOR FRIENDS IN THE SAME ROOM TOGETHER.
Artemis simulates a spaceship bridge by networking several computing devices together. One device runs the simulation and the "main screen", while the others serve as workstations for the normal jobs a bridge officer might do, like Helm, Communication, Engineering, and Weapon Control.
Artemis is a social game where several players are together in one room ("bridge") , and while they all work together, one player plays the Captain, a person who sits in the middle, doesn't have a workstation, and tells everyone what to do.
What's New in Version 2.1.1
Bug fix that kept the game from starting properly on some IOS 8 tablets.
This is the Star Ship game we deserve!
This is a fantastic game. My friends and I play on a home LAN and supplement the PCs with iPads. Yes, the iPad version is buggy when you exit it and try to relaunch but there is an easy workaround. Just double click the home button and swipe the Artemis app up to kill it. It should then relaunch fine. If you've wanted to command a star ship or at least be a part of the bridge crew, this is the game for you!
Pressing the Home button then going back in = black screen
The latest version (2.1.1) still has a bug on my iPad Air 1 with iOS 8.1.3: launch the game, wait for it to finish loading, then press the iPad's Home button. Then touch the app again to go back into it. The music keeps playing, but the screen fades to black and the game is unplayable until it's killed and relaunched.
Bugs ruin an amazing experience
I love the concept behind this game, and the only reason I did not purchase it earlier was because I could not find other people who would spend $40 for the PC version. I thought that the $3.00 iOS version would be enough for my gaming group, maybe even encourage them to throw down for the real thing.
What a mistake.
Disconnects everywhere. Poor server support. Awful mission documentation. The list goes on and on. My group played for two hours before they just couldn't handle the networking issues. Everyone had an iPhone 5 or later or a current iPad, so tech shouldn't be an issue.
Does anyone even care about this game anymore?
