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.

Ratings and Reviews

Updated: game works again and it’s great!


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.

Like the original, but super buggy!


I’ve played three different games so far and each one has frozen from different bugs only about 5-10 turns into the game. Work out the bugs please!!!

Love Space Trader to bits, but not so much this.


+1 to what everyone's said about the robots not working correctly

Also +1 to the starting with a grasshopper thing.

A couple other problems I've run into are: items get stuck in my cargo bays and let me "sell" then infinitely without removing them and making to buy other stuff... which is game breaking. There's literally nothing to do in the game if you can't buy more things. Any help fixing this would be much appreciated because I missssss Space Trader! I was all about this game back in the palm pilot days and I've been creeping on the App Store for forever looking for it to pop up again. So excited when I found this. So bummed when I couldn't really even play it :(

Other glitches:

- every system seems to be at war?
- Trader ships always offer to sell 0 cargo.
- when a Trader ship is offering to sell me (0) cargo, it's says that I have -2714 cargo bays available
