Superbly implemented game
From a technical perspective this game is superlative in every way. Its gameplay is clean, crisp, and straightforward. It doesn't crash. It doesn't lag. What you get are five-minute chunks of easy, enjoyable fun.
There are three areas where the developers could improve it, however.
First would be a longer single player campaign with more frequent dialog and perhaps even a few meaningful player-driven plot choices would be nice.
Second would be minor UI tweaks. For example, they should add a "back" button so that you could go back to see dialog that you accidentally tapped past. There should also be an option to skip the agonizingly slow death animation of a mothership.
Third, the mechanic for earning Research Points is flawed. The 5RP penalty for taking extra turns is ridiculous. What's the point of saving up RP to buy the expensive ships if you're going to get penalized for playing slowly enough to be able to afford to deploy them? The current model rewards only one strategy: rush to the enemy ASAP and mass produce cheap fighters. I feel this should be reworked-- and by that I mean, drastically overhauled.
Despite the above, I will say this is one of the best coded and most consistently fun games I have ever downloaded on an iPhone. I definitely recommend it.
This is an incredible game I can't seem to take my eyes off it or put it down every attribute about this game is amazing and I'm glad it's not one of those "waiting" type games because I honestly hate those games. 5 stars must have.
Finally a game that's original, addicting, interesting and fun to play all at the same time. It's like every great strategy game on PC in the plam of your hand. The fighting is spectacular, the story is engrossing and the combat is intuitive. How is it that this isn't the number one game on the app store?
