What's New in Version 1.04
*** Large fleet bug has been fixed ***
Issues for me have been minimal
I was nervous seeing so many negative reviews but I have been playing for about 10 hours now with only minimal issues. First off, I love this game. I remembered it from my childhood and was very happy so see it ported (and amazed - I doubt it was an easy thing to port!) It's an epic 4D space adventure that can be played many times in many ways, from the head-on brawler, to the tactical commander to the resource managers and so on.
So, about the glitches. Yes, there are some but here is how to get around them. First, close all background apps before playing the game. Double click the home button and swipe up on each thumbnail to close open apps. Or you can just restart your iPad. That'll work too. From there, realize you can't just jump in and out of the game like you can iMessage or Facebook. If you need to close the app, save your game manually then close. When you go back into the game, you may have have to relaunch the app (double click - swipe up - launch) and let it load back to the title screen. And that's about it. You keep that in mind and the game runs like a champ! Hope that helps.
The game all in all is well built with very many features that you can dive into. The game is the type that hooks you in, but the issues that are very few but major. 1st issue and the only I've ever had a issue with is how after a select few of messages you game will crash if you skip or if you don't. An example of why it's bad is after and before each cut I have to save m,y game for the fear of losing my progress is a pain, especially when each event is random and will change if the saves aren't placed right, like the Gordon's declaring war or asking for a favor. 2nd issue is how the events work, mainly because of the save issue and how the game can be taken advantage of because of it. Other than that the ga,me is fun if you play right and smart then you will have a great time.
Great, with crashing exception.
This is amazing, and I played it for quite a while. But as other reviews have pointed out it crashes after a certain point. Albeit this point is pretty far in the game. Fix this, and I'll feel like I should've payed A LOT MORE. The content included in this is incredible! Not only is it a fun galactic empire game, but there's a fairly immersive storyline too! In other games the diplomacy is extremely straight forward. In this, your decisions effect your races progressions quite a bit. I won't spoil any more, but if you're considering buying this, please do yourself a favor and buy the heck outof it.
