Read Pls Devs (Crashing issues causes found)

Dear developers, the game is experiencing very frequent crashes, mostly during battles when multiple units were individually selected for different targets. Please do a hot fix on this since certain events (Dual enemy ship encounters or triple like the final chapter boss) are utterly unplayable due to reloading from the start, if this cannot be fixed, please consider adding an auto save right after one of those fights during the encounter, thank you!
Edit: The game crashes when double tapping a unit on the battlefield, so far it yields an 100% crash rate, additionally, squadrons like parasite, juggernaut will also cause game to crash when using their abilities. When more than 5 or more squadrons are engaged in asteroid terrains, the game also seems to crash too. Also, a few times the game crashed when the enemy is using ship weapons against my squadrons.
Hopefully this helps, I’m still testing to see if there were other crashing triggers.

A dark take on FTL, with RTS elements

Really love how they make you feel like a starship commander and the storyline so far, and I’ve only finished chapter 1! A few things keep it from being 5 stars. 1. The graphics feel a bit small and are sometimes hard to parse, I can’t imagine this playable on a smaller screen than 11”. Would love some kind of zoom when selecting tiles, even just a little would help a lot. I don’t need to see both ships when I’m telling my drones where to fly for example. 2. Some of the pixel art doesn’t seem to scale down right, like the terrain on surface missions looks like a mess of pixels, I tried the PC demo and they were clear there. Not sure what resolution this is running, but give us a higher resolution level for iPad pros! 2. The controls are mostly well implemented, but I can’t figure out how to cancel ship weapons without restarting their timers, and I’ve accidentally bought things in shops because I swiped too slow since there isn’t a confirm box there. Little things like that are frustrating. Overall though I recommend this game to anyone who enjoys spaceship combat, strategy, or who loved FTL. Can’t wait to play more!

Great game, but I wish…

Bought the game a couple days ago and I love it. The combat flows and scales nicely depending on what difficulty you pick. The story and lore is a slow drip with an interesting twist. I only really have two complaints. Every now and again the game boots me out when I’m about to win a fight and will continue to do so if I approach it the same way again and again. It’s not a big deal on a lower difficulty as all I have to do is change my tactics, but on a higher challenge it’s a nuisance and makes quick runs demoralizing as this bug is more common than I’d like to admit. My second is the length of the game. This game is SHORT. A handful of hours and you’re done. It’s a bit disappointing giving how much attention went into the world building. I feel an expansion would give this game the time it needs to feel even better. If you like post apocalyptic Sci-fi this game is an easy grab.
