Explore the galaxy and and find solar systems. Populate the numerous planets and extract different raw materials. Build weapons platforms for defence and research centres to improve your skills. Friends of space strategy games will feel at home here, because colonization and research are core elements of the game.

When the raw materials of the discovered planets are not sufficient anymore, scan the space for asteroids and extract additional raw materials there. The 4X approach of "eXplore", "eXpand", "eXploit" and "eXterminate" is supported by over 45 missions / quests of the areas of "Military", "Economy", "Exploration" & "Expansion". This means that the player is constantly faced with new challenges and once a player successfully completes a mission / quest, he is then rewarded with new build options, research points, the in-game currency called GEO or other various items.


- Find new new solar systems and start to colonize planets
- Explore planets and build different kind of stations and ships
- Extract the raw materials and build supply chains to your stations
- Build weapon platforms and war ships to defend yourself
- Scan the deep space for asteroids and start mining them
- Increase your skills in the research center
- Randomly generated game environment
- Over 45 different missions

The Story:
The Fifo, a people of space nomads, had to make a stop in the normal space unintentionally. As they were leaving the meta space, a very destructive asteroid storm destroyed their ark ship.

The meager remains of the formerly proud nomadic people was forced to settle on the planet Kamolon. The Fifo want nothing more than to get back to their old life and return to the peace of the meta-space. But they need to find all the parts for a new ark ship. Can you help the Fifo people to find the parts of the ark ship? Only then they can return to their eternal journey through the meta-space.

Thalinor ,

Seems great, but tutorial lacking.

How do I build a research station? No tutorial on this and it's not listed under build options. The tutorial is severely lacking leading to a huge trial and error. I know how to set resource production bit which is food? If it's the leaf I have it set to 100% and the people still starve. Really needs a better tutorial.

Seems limited but keeping the 4 star as maybe it's me. Look at star traders 4x for ideas because even without looking over that games tutorial it was easy enough to figure out and seemed to have a lot more content.

New ship idea,nerf Maloc ships

I'd say the game is not too bad at all so say if you could build a ship that can deploy drones to protect itself other than having to send half of your military ships to protect it and escort it.
And the other thing is nerf the time of when Maloc ships come in cause it causes me so much stress when having to rebuild all my pipelines and having another ship come in,in less than like what 2-9 minutes and i have to deal with this problem and the result is catastrophic: Half of my army is gone from the tons of Maloc ships that come in and give me no time to rebuild and get all my ships back so please nerf the time to at least 1 hour please that can be very useful than having your area completely annihilated by the Maloc ships with their projectiles and their small drones that do completely tons of damage,the other thing is with the health the small warships have at least for the sake of my survival in this game add up the health to like 100 or 150.

Thank You,sincerely Player

Awesome gets better

I was a HUGE fan of the first version of this game. While I'm not crazy about every change, I'm soooo glad that the Developer has overhauled one of my favorite apps ever. Be prepared for a new addiction. But be warned; this game is NOT for the faint of heart.

NOTE: In app purchases are NOT required. Some reviewers have mistakenly thought that they were. You can "farm" the Geos that can be purchased by playing on Very Easy. The developer simply included the option to purchase for those people that don't care to farm. Geos are required for the most advanced games.

UPDATE: STILL the best 4x I've found on the iOS.
