Ratings and Reviews
Great game, needs a few fixes
Game is very fun, opens up nicely as you progress. HOWEVER, it desperately needs an update to stop it from crashing if it ever loses focus. The crashes delete saves and ruin games. It’s only the sheerest determination that is keeping me playing this right now. When this bug is fixed, it’ll be stellar.
They really were able to get all of the 4X experience that you were looking for. It’s very simmer down though. Games only last a few dozen rounds. You have to make all the same hard choices that you have to make in much more advanced and lengthy games though. Each of the many races is just a little bit different from the others to make replay a thing. Overall I found it well worth a few dollars I spent on it, and I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in the genre.
My only bit of feedback would be to include more instructional material within the game. Once you get going you pretty quickly figure out how the interface works. But at first the icons and numbers won’t make very much sense to you. Some of the technologies you can research are also a little confusing at first and could use some text explanation to smooth out the learning curve. But I was able to figure it out by just trial and error. Since the games are so short, you don’t have to invest your life into one game to figure out how some thing works.
Nice concept, can’t finish a game
I do like the execution and what the developers are going for. However, I keep running into a big bug — when I pause the game mid-way through to do something else on the phone, (iPhone 8 plus), it has to re-load the app, and I then my save game. 80% of the time, after loading my last turn, the game glitches and I’m left seeing a blank star field with no planets. I’ve tried about 10 games or so, and finished only one.
I’d love this to work, but I can’t play it. Bummer.
