This is a good game

The game may be great if you can buy ships and make a fleet

The game has potential. But when playing, it clearly is extremely unfinished which us disappointing because this game was in development for years. Also the devs are about the laziest Ive seen, their webpages filled with irrelevant advertising and very little information about the game. They also abandoned the game after one very small update and very little progress, after promising a whole bunch of features which were never seen.

So much better than the usual paper thin iOS games. A game with real depth and really exciting. Shame it is mainly just battles, with no real exploring or anything, but still a lot of fun. Pretty hard though and the tutorials are pretty lacking - lots of stuff (how to fire weapons, how to set special moves, how to get weapon tokens etc) you just have to work out by yourself, usually by trial and error. But if you want a fun challenging space exploration game on your iPad (I wouldn't recommend on iPhone tbh), you won't get much better than this!
