Ratings and Reviews
Amazing game that runs Deep
I have been playing this game for almost 2 years.
I just can’t stop! Ive been a gamer all my life and this has become one of my all time favorites.
Like every single free game out there is a slight p2w feeling at first but then you realize its just pay to wait less. Everything you can pay to get you can get free. You can still battle to your hearts desire. There is no limited amount of battles you can do..
I have to say the biggest part about this game is the Dev Team. They have always helped me if i have had any issues. They are constantly working on making the game fun for everyone. Not only that they are constantly dropping new stuff in the game! (I know some future content thats gonna happen soon and its exciting!)
They dont even mention the Market system! Or the whole item system for crafting items for your crew from raw materials!
Even near the end game it becomes epic battles of Ai coding masterminds. No one strategy is the best.
I really love this game and I hope you try it.
Artwork for the Ages
Pixelstarships is a deep and ever evolving experience. From PVE,PVP, monthly tournaments, events, and player leaderboards, you will never see a dull moment. With a focused and responsive developer team, I argue that this will become a very exciting and fullfilling game for years. Players should be comfortable with playing F2P, but dont let the IAP's discourage you. With a complex markey system, crafting, rewards, and the ability to invest your time into these systems can assure everyone has a fair chance. So, give PSS a try, I'm positive you won't be dissapointed!
Good start, bad follow-through
Game starts off well enough but becomes way too hard too quickly. You go through some easy missions to learn how to play the game then suddenly they pull an FTL on you and it's impossible to win any battles unless you accumulate tons of money, which can only be done by running the game for weeks while doing nothing but clicking on gas and mineral icons. Boring!
There is a lot they could have done to make this game more enjoyable but it feels like they stopped working on it once they had a stable beta. So don't download and try this game, you'll only end up frustrated and sad. Maybe someday someone will come out with a spaceship game that's actually fun to play for more than one day, but I doubt it. They all seem to end up as bad as this one.
Challenge friends and check leaderboards and achievements.
