Ratings and Reviews
Because who doesn't want to command their very own spaceship?
Where most mobile games fail, this succeeds. In other games like clash and lords mobile, the game strategy just feels like "Get higher level every thing and kill all that you see." This game actually has you thinking, about what to do and how to do it. Starship combat feels intuitive, with ship layouts, targeting, power, teleportation, and repairs all taking effect into combat. It sounds complicated, and it is at first, but it doesn't have to be: you can make it dumbed down as much as possible. Have everybody focus on one gun? Sure. Only hope to outshield your enemy? Sure. Just want to teleport your guys into the enemies ship? Go for it. Another aspect is the crew to crew fights, where your crew must fight against other crew members. With charging, attacking, and defending being your main options, combat in this area feels surprisingly intuitive. That, and laying out your ship is a fantasy we've all waited for. However, there are a few gripes that I feel obliged to mention. First, the gym: it feels... weak. I send in a troop, have them do the same thing over and over again, and when they're done... nothing. It feels like a waste of time disguised as productive time. But beyond that(and the game's ost that doesn't seem to match it's mood(try listening to the Mega Man ost when playing: thank me later)), the game is well thought out, enjoyable, and one of the most well executed games out there.
I personally really enjoy base defense games like this one and Clash of Clans, but I think that this game blows all others like it out of the water! In clash of clans, you can't really control where your troops go once you place them, or which specific troops your defenses will target, but in this game, it's all you. You can choose to target individual subsystems, weapons, and even, to an extent, crew members! You can set up an ai to defend your ship, add stickers to your ship, and change the color of your ship. There is a lot of personalization, which is nice, and just so many feature that make this game a worthwhile download! 10/10 Great game!!😀
(Edit: I do have one problem with the game. One of the things that you can do with your ship, is that you can spend a substantial amount of the games premium currency, and be able to change the color of your ship. I was excited about this, and I saved up to get that. However when I did this, I found that it basically averages the color. For example I tried to do red, and it gave me orange. That is frustrating, and I hope that that could be patched, if this is fixed, I will change my review back to five stars. Please take heed to this devs! Thanks!)
