We’re unleashing our inner starship captain in this epic simulation game that puts players in charge of Star Command’s newest vessel. With hilarious, self-aware satire and surprisingly deep tactical gameplay, this long-awaited adventure is a must-play for any sci-fi fan and a love letter to all things Star Trek.
Hey, the effort shows
Okay, this game isn't perfect. Way far away from perfect, actually. But the effort is obvious and I'm not sorry I paid for it. Overall, it's a solid starship command game coupled with some nifty pixel art and some pretty good sound. The story is pretty thin and there's no path other than combat (yet...supposedly it's coming), but as far as it goes for now, it's good at what it does. Combat requires balancing tactics of intership battle and ship defense against boarders. There's damage control to handle, and tactical minigames (which actually aren't annoying at all; they make sense, are well designed, and add to the game). There have been bugs, yes, and there's still a list of unimplemented features, but they're still adding and changing, and it's been for the better. Given another chance, I'd still buy it. Perfect? No. But very good and well worth it. It's also worth noting that this is a developer that actually listens, amazing as that sounds. Player feedback about a really bad game mechanic was listened to, and that mechanic is gone. I'd recommend buying a copy; it's a good sci-fi game, something that's sadly rare on the App Store. Lack of updates is getting to be a real drawback, though.
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.
