Addictive, guilty pleasure!
This one of the better game apps for the iPhone that I've downloaded. It really captures the feel and nostalgia of the Star Trek universe. It's simple to learn and reasonably challenging to master. Think, Sim-City in a star ship...with character development and story lines. Like most games, in-app purchases can speed up progress but they are certainly not necessary for an immersive and thoroughly satisfying experience.
My 11 year son, who has never seen Star Trek, watched me play it and thought the simple character graphics were cute, the ships cool, and the music exciting, so he downloaded it for himself (on his iPod 5). The variety of ships, uniforms, games-within-the-game, has him coming back to this app day after day. It wasn't long before he wanted to sit down and watch episodes of TOS, animated Trek, DS9, etc. I grew up on TOS (I'm 54) and I never thought my kids would ever be interested in anything other than Star Wars and Halo. This silly little app was the gateway drug my 11 year needed to get hooked into becoming a Trekker in training.
Away Team Combat is Buggy, Skirmish Problematic
Overall, the game keeps improving, so kudos for that. That being said...the space combat buttons NEED to be moved. By having them at the top of the screen, when I get a notification, they cover my cards, and I often end up accidentally tapping the notification, disconnecting me from combat and forcing a loss. I shouldn't have to put my phone in Do Not Disturb to play this game.
Also, I'm at a point in the game where to win combat missions, I can't make any mistakes, despite my officer's skills being maxed. But sometimes when the cubes are over an enemy, my phasers fire when I tap the cube. This is especially problematic in space combat. This needs to be fixed. I keep losing missions not because of my skill, but because of the touch sensitivity of the game.
Takes over 1.2 GB of storage
UPDATE: it is no longer giving that error message, but it has seeming grown to take up 1.2 GB of storage on my device! I have no room for that on my device so have to delete it until it becomes more space efficient. It does not have super high resolution graphics, or long videos, so has no reason to take over a GB of storage.
After installing the latest update, it tells you that an update is required, and redirects you to the App Store. This is an example of why it is so terrible to mandate being on the latest version to use the app at all, not only are people on old devices potentially left out when they're unable to update, but the system can fail, rendering the entire app unusable, as this one is, demanding you install a nonexistent update!
