Ultraviolet Dawn

By Sad Cat Software

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


From the makers of critically-acclaimed "Project Phoenix" comes a new, exciting creation. "Ultraviolet Dawn" is a hybrid space-shooter/trading game with a completely open Universe comprising over 1,000 stars to explore. "Ultraviolet Dawn" is our most beautiful and refined game to date.

There is no single predefined way to play - everything is entirely up to you. You chose what you want to be and how you want to play. You can be a peaceful merchant, shuttling goods between stars. You can be an outlaw, attacking innocent ships and capturing their cargo. You can be a smuggler, trading in illegal goods banned by the the Intergalactic Federation. You can even run missions, both legal and illegal.

There is so much to the game. Not only can you upgrade your ships weapons, but you can also upgrade equipment, such as adding more powerful engines or faster regenerating shields. You can even trade your ship in and fly something else entirely, whether a captured pirate ship or a large, bulky cargo carrier.

* Be good or evil: peaceful trader, indepenent bounty hunter, or a pirate outlaw - the choice is completely yours.
* Over 1,000 stars in an entirely open-ended universe to explore.
* 8 different ships to pilot.
* Unique goods trading system, with realistic demand and supply price calculations.
* Ability to hire teammates for help, with teammate formations provided.
* Fully upgradeable weapons systems.
* Upgradable ship equipment systems - engines, shields, and much more.
* Three difficulty levels.
* Local and global high scores.
* Saveable at any point in time.
* Intense, driving music and awesome sound effects.

Great Game...

...But consider adding more features including:
• the ability to build a fleet of ships
• more spacecraft to buy (including the really large starships)
• more weapons and things to buy
• a LOT more missions
• online play- maybe like Eve Online
• the ability to customize your starship (color, sound, etc.
• possibly some type of thing where you can buy or attack planets/asteroids
• different space stations- there's on a couple different space station designs seen through out the game
• better instructions (tutorial maybe?)
• larger universe?
• the ability to actually be hired by police/military/pirates/traders and follow them in missions.

Good, but missing something

I really love this game, but an update changing a few things would be great. Specifically:

Police help fight pirates

Other ships also get attacked by pirates

Pay bail to lose wanted level


Change how the mining laser looks when it shoots, right now it's just a dull white bar

More missions


More items to trade

Please take this into consideration.
Btw, everyone who doesn't know how, you lose wanted level by doing charity missions like drought and famine relief. And try not to kill anyone except pirates


There ate alot of pros and few cons the pros are

Good graphics

Well tooled

8 aircraft to choose from

Literally thousands of star clusters to play in

All with it's own specialties for gameplay

Really interesting law status workout.

Cons are

Only eight aircraft

The missions only have about 15 types

Can't use or kill the hugest ships

The legal status system has it's pros and cons like one mission changes ur status one level up or down.

Other than that a amazing app very addictive and fun!!!! :D
