A fine game, well worth the price. No in app purchases (thanks for that). It obvious has potential to grow, but it is very playable and you can play through what I assume is the first chapter. Took me 6 hours or so total. Maybe more. I enjoyed it quite a bit. If I had any critique it's be that the story doesn't give you enough choices that matter in relation to the overall plot - though it does give you a lot of choices that change how each mission will play out. Also it needs a button to return the entire crew to their duties at once after a battle. (Needs to be done manually for each crew member right now.) I'm impressed overall. Way back in the dos days, a game like this would be 20x the price. Oh, and before I bought it I read one review saying that it was very easy. Not true. I think it's more a matter of your skill level. I found normal mode quite challenging at times. And another that made it sound like you had to do a lot of complicated stuff to get people to attack. That's just not true. When you first bring on new crew, you have to assign them a part of the ship and that will determine if they have combat duties. They will auto attack if an enemy comes in range or you can move them to attack manually. Summary: good game. Worth the purchase.
Best space-RPG for iOS
This is probably the best space related RPG games out there for iOS. The ability to control all units is extremely helpful when under attack, and helps players actually get involved in the storyline instead of going along with it like other iOS games. The weapons controls are a bit tricky to learn, but adds to the excitement and tension when battling another spaceship. However, the main story is a bit short, and somewhat easily predictable. The main storyline seems like the first episode of a space-sci fi show, and kinda kills your soul when it ends. It would be nice if the game had "episodes" which put you in different scenarios. Now I'm not saying restart the player with a new ship and different storyline, I'm saying when the player beats the first story,a tab on the side of their screen lets them select a story, then the game will act accordingly to that story. Such as a message will pop up telling you to explore a new solar system or galaxy that is uncharted, then you save the world or universe from whatever. This is an amazing game that should be bought right away. It still looks like a work in progress app, but I have faith much more is to come.
Hey, the effort shows
Okay, this game isn't perfect. Way far away from perfect, actually. But the effort is obvious and I'm not sorry I paid for it. Overall, it's a solid starship command game coupled with some nifty pixel art and some pretty good sound. The story is pretty thin and there's no path other than combat (yet...supposedly it's coming), but as far as it goes for now, it's good at what it does. Combat requires balancing tactics of intership battle and ship defense against boarders. There's damage control to handle, and tactical minigames (which actually aren't annoying at all; they make sense, are well designed, and add to the game). There have been bugs, yes, and there's still a list of unimplemented features, but they're still adding and changing, and it's been for the better. Given another chance, I'd still buy it. Perfect? No. But very good and well worth it. It's also worth noting that this is a developer that actually listens, amazing as that sounds. Player feedback about a really bad game mechanic was listened to, and that mechanic is gone. I'd recommend buying a copy; it's a good sci-fi game, something that's sadly rare on the App Store. Lack of updates is getting to be a real drawback, though.
