Build rockets, launch satellites, create a space station!
Do you want to build and fly your own space rockets?
Of course you do!
Are you a billionaire?
No...that makes it tricky.
Fortunately, there is a way for us non-billionaires to run our own space programme...Space Agency!
* Build rockets
* Launch satellites
* Create a space station
* Explore the solar system
This is a highly challenging and complex game. Only the most talented astronauts should attempt it.
Have you got the right stuff?
What's New in Version 1.4.4
* No more faulty solar panels in the Sandbox - everyone really hated that feature - sorry.
* Undock modules only when their airlocks are closed - allows for selective undocking.
* Fully dock toghether modules that are arranged in a square configuration.
* Only achieve a Gold award if you didn’t use any checkpoints - ha ha, yes I’m cruel!
* Lots of bug fixes.
The best got much better!
This is easily one of my most favorite apps -- definitely among the top 3. No IAP-requirement nonsense, no energy meters or premium currency. Just tons of space goodness. Some criticize the physics of SA, and it is simplified. If you really need hyperaccurate physics for your Hohmann transfers, then go Kerbal...except you can't do that on an iPad! SA strikes the perfect balance among three tricky elements: accuracy, approachability, and dynamism. (Yes, the physics is somewhat simplified. That means you can enjoy the game without having to go through lengthy and tedious training. Yep, even the tutorials in this game are well made!) An extensive menu of parts and near-limitless sandbox makes space your playground. And for the mission/goal-oriented types, there's a list of well-crafted missions to keep your interest for hours and hours. This is a chew-up-hours type game, and would-be devs take note: this is how GREAT GAMES are made!
Great game, annoying controls
I love the idea of this game, the subtle movements that give you an idea of just how precise this really is. However, the controls really limit the fun. Sometimes you'll try to make a precise adjustments only to find that you're no longer in control of the ship or that you're now in control of a communication satellite. Please make a way to easily change between vehicles and a way to lock you into your vehicle until you select otherwise. I would've beaten level 5 so many time by now except that it's really really difficult to pick which vehicle you want. Games should be challenging because of their content, not because of the user interface.
Space Agency is the best mobile space simulator I have seen. Realistic and historical spacecraft make this game great for all audiences. There are only a few things I'd like to see changed/added.
I would like to see the speed of the stars while moving through space greatly slowed. They move far to quickly and give the false illusion of traveling beyond light speed which has thrown me off on more that one occasion.
Hopefully you plan to add more spacecraft to the game. I'd highly recommend Mercury capsules, SpaceX's Falcon 9, and possibly even shuttles.
Finally, I think it would be great if you could zoom out all the way to see the whole map. I've wanted to see the whole system to get my bearings.
Otherwise this is an outstanding app and I highly recommend it.
