"...Starship Battles is a solid little game that will remind you of the days you spent in the arcade pumping quarters into the Missile Command machine. It is proof that some of the oldest gameplay styles still holds up today and that is always a good time..."

What's New in Version 1.2
- Commandeer a mighty new Warship: the Olympus Dreadnought!
Not bad, but unpolished
This is an entertaining game similar to missile command with a bit of upgrades and "money" in the form of minerals thrown in to keep you playing, while minerals can be purchased as an IAP, I found the drops to be fair and IAP only for people who don't want to play the game.
The graphics are decent and game play is smooth.
A few things could be polished though to make this a really great game. For one, it would be cool if you could purchase upgrades for your ships to keep you playing and that RPG element alive. Also, a button to instantly take you back to your ship to defend it would somewhat fix the swiping around madness. Some kind of story or progression would be cool. Finally (minor spoiler) the super expensive classified ship is lame. It is barely better than the base ship! I played and saved for quite a while to get it, and it was a joke. If I had spent real money to get it I would be furious.
Overall the game is a fun way to waste a few minutes in quick games. With a little polish it would be really great.
Nice art/graphics, but unfortunately this is no more than a worthless endless runner, with IAP of course. Might be a bit more enjoyable if you could zoom out to see and play in the whole gameplay field, otherwise you just end up swiping around like crazy looking for the minerals while you're getting destroyed, fun, not.
The new update is great!
