Amazing - Must Get!
Star Command is the best space RPG I have ever played. Having played this game since release, I know exactly how much fun you can have with this game. I played through the whole game in "Black Whole" mode, witch took me an insanely long time to complete. This game is not perfect however. Since release, it has not received an update, and the StarCom Guide app has nothing to say about it. I think that this game has a lot of potential to get better because the base is already there. The larger rooms can have as many people as the small ones witch is a problem. Also, the player cannot invade the enemy's ship and they can invade yours. You cannot see into the enemy ship and control your ship to target the enemy ship's crew. But, I think think this game has AMAZING music. I and other gamers out there know, and we really do know that good music makes a good game great. Overall, this game has a GREAT and ENGAGING storyline that is easy to follow. I absolutely LOVE the design of the ships and their upgrades and abilities. The idea is great, and could possibly become one of the most popular mobile games around. The one problem is that the game doesn't seem to be going anywhere, as it has not received an update even after several e-mails I have sent to contact the devs with new ideas and feed back. Great job devs, and thanks for creating such an amazing game that I have put so many hours into.
Fun Sci-fi Strategy Game
This game reminds me of FTL, and I mean that as a complement. Taking command of a ship, you make decisions on what modifications and improvements to make as you progress through the game. You also manage crew member locations and they gain experience as they survive the game.
Gameplay consists of traveling to different planets and systems, engaging in a brief dialog and cutscenes before a ship battle commences. Occasionally you will be boarded and you must maneuver your tactical crew to engage enemies while keeping defenseless science and engineering classes out of the way. The story progression is somewhat linear, though you may choose when to progress and whether to do side missions. Tokens for upgrades to the ship are given after finishing each system battle.
I finished the story in about two days, I'd say 6-8 hours of gameplay. After finishing you may play again on a harder difficulty with a better ship and more options. You may save the game in one of three slots between missions, including iCloud access. Overall its a fun and humorous game with good value and I hope to see more from the devs in terms of similar games or additional content for this one.
Not worth your money...
Star command is boring, bland, and poorly made sci-fi game. Some of the four ships you can choose from have bad texture issues that let you see the inside from the outside and when you start to upgrade your ship they will stick out like sour thumbs. All the ships are mostly empty with way too much walk room and they look really boring. The medium rooms for some reason can only hold the same amount of people as the small rooms. When you are in the long and boring ship fights the enemy seems to have an unlimited amount of soldiers to send to your ship where as your max can go up to 21. You don't have the option to teleport soldiers to the enemy ship either. The way the Health works is that your shield gets broken by a pebble and then flames engulf you ship causing damage to systems and possible death to crew members(I like this) and your shield regenerates fairly quickly. On the other hand, the enemy's ships have a huge amount of shield and hull. You can't damage particular systems on their ship and you can kill their crew members unless one of their unlimited guys go on your ship. Your ship can be crippled but theirs can't. It's not really adventurous, you are on your boring looking ship the entire game. The story is boring and predictable, there are only three systems you can visit, and the combat is just you waiting the ridiculously long cool down time for your cannons. Go spend your money on out there.
