Description

The Universe is a Dangerous Place

In the 22nd century, we left a dying earth so that a fortunate few could settle the new home we call Novus.

In time, we would learn that life on a frontier colony is neither prosperous nor peaceful. Our first encounter with the nautilid started with hostilities and confusion, and ended with sacrifice. Fourteen years later, our leaders remain politically entangled and unable to see the threats that linger, both afar and within our own walls…

Star Hammer: The Vanguard Prophecy is a game of 3D tactical space battles. Play your part in the Second Contact War in a campaign with a branching story and over 60 missions, or create your own scenarios in skirmish mode battles.

Give your orders, and watch the results in explosive pausable real-time. Tailor your arsenal of crew abilities and assault class ships as your fleet grows with your command. Exploit the enemy’s weaknesses with superior positioning and flanking manoeuvres to inflict devastating damage.

Six classes of assaults ships are yours to command. Make precision strikes with the swift Swordfish Raiders, or lead from the bridge of a hulking Kraken Dreadnought. Change your tactics as you order reinforcements with stun guns, guided missiles, unmanned fighter drones and single-focus DEW beams.

The nautilid threat is as varied as it is innumerable, however, and they will not surrender. Use your wits to overcome the threat of disruption fields, bio-missiles and proximity mines. And not all opposition to your command comes from outside. Raise the shields of your capital ships and engage in devastating broadside combat with the renegade military conspiracists who call themselves the Remnant.

Will you obey the chain of command and strengthen Novus’ defenses, or take your opponents head-on by yourself?

Customer Reviews

Unfairly harsh reviews

I delayed buying this game for months based in the reviews- finally it went on sale and I had some store credit, so I decided to give it a chance. After all, Slitherine hasn't failed me yet and I have several of their games.

I'm glad I did- I find the game to be highly enjoyable. The controls make sense as long as you pay attention when they're explaining them, and the combat itself is varied enough to keep me coming back as new ships are added. True- the storyline isn't all videos and special effects- buts it's engaging enough and they save there'll effort for the game.

If you're on the fence like I was- give it a try and if you like it fight back against the negative reviews!

A real looser

The game has a lot of senseless dialogue and the battles are painfully boring. I needed to restart the game and my iPad multiple times because it became unresponsive. The game seems shallow, unfinished, the graphics leave much to be desired. A real looser from Slitherine... besides all that it's HIGHLY over priced! I will definitely pass on Slitherine games in the future.

What is going on here?

Did Slitherine throw their hands up and phone this in? This game doesn't make any sense. Everything is always out of range even when directly in front of your ship. Weapons are badly underpowered and slow. This isn't fun, exciting or challenging. It's just clunky, messy and frustrating.
But it looks nice.
