Good game all around

First off I will preface this by saying I’m only working on my first planet for now but I will say from my experience the game is very good especially considering purchases are entirely optional and the game itself is free

However, somethings could definitely be improved on such as the graphics of the water when trying to build a new colony/ outpost, specifically it saying they cannot be built under-water where no water is shown, including when attempting to place a new mine at an outpost.

Another issue I encountered is that the tutorial isn’t particularly helpful and I instead found myself relying almost entirely on trial and error, for example currently I hate heat rising by +1 per minute and it says to reduce the rising heat levels and there was no focus on being able to pause the progress for any reason you should wish such as not wanting to drown your colonies and outposts while you sleep/ are at work.

Loving this game.. is it a game

I’ve been playing this a few days and it’s got me hooked.. trying to settle a new planet.. tweaking things to get it right and build a world to be run like I think it should be. It really is free to play as far as I can see. There are lots of opportunities to watch adds to get things to help you but if you don’t want that you can ignore them. It’s up to you. I don’t mind watching them as it gives me things to help my game play. It’s a game that will take time.. no one said terraforming a planet and building a colony on it was a quick task. When you log back on after a nights sleep, your colonists have made you more credits to spend on new research and so you continue. Yes you can spend money if you wish but I’ve felt no need to do so. The only glitch I have seen so far is that occasionally when I am watching one of the adds, the game may crash or the add goes to a black screen instead of letting you click the cross to close it. This means I have to reload the game but I haven’t lost anything in the process except maybe a minute of time as the game loads really quick. I messaged support about this and got a reply within a day saying they were aware of some reports of this and were working on it. Therefore I have still rated this at 5 stars because they took time to respond to me quickly. Other game support people, take note, aa quick reply is good. I will update my review as time goes by but so far, it’s great !

One of the best games ever

First of, the game is free and the option to buy is actually an option not a requirement. Now,I’ve played countless games on my iPhone...this one rates as the best of them all to date. Absolutely love the haunting yet beautiful soundtrack. It’s rare that producers will make an effort to match game and music, most fob us off with some half baked game that is pretty much the same level just designed to look different. We’ve all been there, a game looks awesome but beyond the first half a dozen levels you realise you’re just repeating the same levels with a different back drop. This game is different in that you can not only watch your colony grow and prosper, but when you are away from your device,the planets and colony continue to grow and evolve. I can never afford to spend cash on games, so I have to earn what I can via the game and adverts. Unlike most games,I can actually progress here because the developer obviously understands that in our present climate, money is tight and ppl struggle. This is one of very few games where the producers have catered for ppl like myself who don’t use or have access to credit cards or phone credit payments.

To the producers I’d just like to say well done, you continue to make us all very proud.
