About the game:
Tactical Space Command (TSC) is an abstract space combat command simulation where you are in command of a fleet, delegating orders to the ships and task forces under your command and monitoring your fleet's progress via a combat Information system style interface.
TSC includes a variety of scenarios with different challenges for the player, but the basic goal of the game is to capture all enemy planets and asteroids while defending your own from attack. In the game, you can:
• Organize ships into task forces and assign formations.
• Give a wide range of orders to your task forces and independent ships.
• Promote and assign officers to command your ships, stations and task forces (or let the computer handle that for you).
• Allocate planetary production to build ships and defense stations.
• Customize your research focus.
• Capture enemy planets and asteroids while defending your own from enemy assault.
• Interdict enemy shipping to cripple enemy production while protecting your own shipping from attack.
• Customize event notifications to keep track of game events.
• Create your own custom scenarios and share them with other players.
TSC takes full advantage of high resolution displays to deliver sharp vector graphics, and includes an option for an alternate color palette for red-green colorblind players. It also includes a tutorial, gameplay tips and help for every screen and selection to help ease beginning players into the game.
• 64-bit support
Ratings and Reviews
Good but please fix LAG problem
The game is great on a smaller level, but once the planet count goes up, the lag increases to almost unbearable levels. But other than that, the game has a good balance of the different ships. The combat is weak as you cannot see the actual battles but it gets the job done. Fix these few problems and you have a really good tactical game.
Lot of potential
Very interesting game. Better than most attempts at iPad strategy games, but needs diplomacy fleshed out a bit rather than just being a countdown timer to war, and could use another ship type of two (repair logistics or crowd control-style emp ship). I like the idea of managing the captains, but I'm not entirely clear are the benefits. Lot of potential in this game.
Apple needs more stars...... This game needs it
Dude this game gave me a taste of game that is actual fun...... And stays true to a fleet control and well isn't lying when they say this game is a steatite game..... Also when ever I look on Apple Store ( which i.s rare cause this game is epic) I look for games like it.... So far no game is like it
