Travel the galaxy, become an expert trader, fight pirates, and run from the police in Space Trader! A much-anticipated remake of the hugely popular, timeless strategy game from the 1980s, Space Trader is a historically accurate port of the original Palm Pilot game by Pieter Spronck. It features the original ten commodities and more than 100 original planets, each with unique tech levels, governments, resources, and other characteristics.

This is pretty awesome!! ,

Just like the old game :)

I love this game so much. Takes me back to the old game. There’s only a few bugs such as the scrolling in the star system sometimes gets stuck to where you can’t read it making you restart the app. Other than that, where the heck do I find crew members?? And mercenaries to hire?

Another update: game broken again

Update 2: the game is broken and won’t load up at all, just crashes. Don’t purchase.

Update: below is the original review. After a year or so I reinstalled the game seeing it was updated. Really glad to see it works and plays just like the original!

I used to love playing this game up until the developers decided to break it and never fix it. The game WILL NOT OPEN at all so don't bother buying it.

Sadly buggy

I used to live this game on the Palm Pilot and was happy to see it on the App Store. I wish I’d read the other reviews about the bugs.
Sadly, after several games, I’ve never been able to get more than two turns into it before it crashes, freezes, or just won’t let me leave my current system. (Yes, I bought fuel :)

I loved the game and wanted to play it again. I am sad that I cannot :(
