5.0 out of 5 stars Just One More Turn.. June 7, 2011
Verified Purchase
This app/game is as good as it gets. Interesting, fun, ad-free, and it has a variety of tasks to complete or goals to set. You can explore "wild" planets, fight other ships, trade with worlds, spy on factions... lots to do. There are also unlockable goals which open up new ship upgrades or new starting ships, and several different difficulty levels so that you can set the right level of challenge. All of this for the current price of free... it just doesn't get any better.

Apparently, there is also an upgrade which makes the world larger, adds more planets and unlockable challenges/upgrades for a couple of bucks. I forsee myself paying for it in the near future. Even without the upgrade, however, I feel that I've barely scratched the surface of this game... the upgrade would just be extra icing on the already delicious cake. I haven't felt like I'm "missing" anything by not having the upgrade, however. This really is not a "lite" or test version of the game. Truthfully, this free version is better than many other paid apps/games I've played. Download it and give it a whirl, I doubt you'll regret it... (unless you stay up too late playing, and thats your own fault)

5.0 out of 5 stars Lots of fun! May 30, 2011
Verified Purchase
Brings me back to my teens, playing TradeWars on the local WWIV BBSes. It isn't much of a casual game, but I don't mind at all. Most of the apps I find are short attention-span style games. This one is one of those that you really get to spend some time in.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Mobile RPG for hardcore gamers May 24, 2011
By Haze
Verified Purchase
All of the variety of the cookie cutter rpg's was fun for a while. This is the deepest RPG experience I've seen on Android. And its tailored perfectly for the platform.... it's like a digital version if the old school pen & paper rpg's. Very much worth it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best android game I ever played September 10, 2011
By Mark
Verified Purchase
This 2D game lets you take control of your own starship which you can use to explore tons of interesting planets and dark stretches of space. The graphics and artwork are simple but cool. You customize your character by upgrading certain traits as you gain XP like strength, stealth, etc. You can also buy tons of different starships and upgrade them which is fun (you can only control one though). Encounters with enemy ships are 1D but still cool. You can fire torpedoes and guns and you can even ram or board and take control of other ships. You can steal their cargo or enslave their crew if you win boarding which is awesome. There are various factions in the galaxy and you can build good or bad reputations with them. Money can be gained by selling cargo on planets or completing contracts for factions. There is a loose backstory about AIs that long ago brought man to the stars but then went rougue. You can find their artifacts around the galaxy but the robots themselves seem to have dissapeared. While this is a great game, my single greatest complaint is that the plot is really loose and cant be explored much. There is no campaign at all. You just fly around the galaxy exploring planets and doing jobs for people that seem random and dont further any sort of plot. After I had played for a few weeks and upgraded my character a ton and got the best ship I got a little bored. This game is very fun especially for space/scifi people, but it can get a bit repetitive after a while. Hopefully a campaign or something will be released later. I highly recommend this game as it will keep you entertained for at least a while and you'll have a lot of fun. I downloaded the elite edition too for $1 and I think its a great deal because you get a lot of new ships and space to explore as well as new ship upgrades.

2.0 out of 5 stars usability sucks April 13, 2012
By Mike
Verified Purchase
This game is exactly what I wanted but its way too hard to play. Too many actions required for even simple tasks. For example to look at a map takes FOUR clicks. AND the map is located on the cargo screen of all places took me forever to find it. I like the game but it needs more thought on usability.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic open-ended RPG January 22, 2012
Verified Purchase
A fantastic open-ended RPG. All the useless stats tweaking I could want. Battles are fun and challenging. I particularly like the game mechanics that allow me to play games the way I want, whether that's as a feared pirate extraordinaire or a fearless explorer looking for trade goods. Great game!

2.0 out of 5 stars Not for me
SEEess it's too "old school" for me . I want to SEE ships blow up, not be told that I was blown up or that I blew up the other guy. No action, just text. Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars A fun challenge
The game finds it's own Mich between fun and challenging. I recommend it to anyone who loves games where they set their own pace. Though some of the trades seem off at times.

5.0 out of 5 stars Definitely worth the free.
Excellent way to waste time and will certainly let you know if you like the gameplay enough to upgrade to the elite version, which I recommend.
