EDIT: Seems the game requires an Internet connection to play. With WiFi enabled, the game starts just fine.
shipping game does not deliver
cons: gfx are poor (hd upgrade may fix this). gameplay is boring - buying goods cheaper on 1 planet, them selling to another. refueling really limits game length (tho stopping quickly may make this a pro..) level of enemy was unhelpful - all the easy enemies beat me, but i beat the normal ones.
notes: granted, i'm probably biased since i'm not rly a fan of this game genre, but i find it hard to imagine many ppl playing this more than once.
Sorry, this is still in development.
Crashes and menu system is poor.
When it works, gameplay is an awkward and uninteresting version of 'Space Trader', and there are better versions of this for iPhone.
Continuous music loop is annoying too.
Needs more work.
I dl'd for free, still deleting. Sorry Dev's, you knew your game was not a finished program!!!
