From the helm, you must also construct a mighty economy, one capable of surviving the devastation of war and the attacks of political adversaries. A sprawling technology tree lies before you and your choice of technologies will determine the strategy of your galactic civilization.

Ratings and Reviews
Great game, lots of depth!
I don't often write good reviews - either a game is good and it gets lots of good comments or it doesn't. But I am making an exception in this case. This is a good game - tons of technology developments to research, extensive development potential of your planets, all kinds of ship design possibilities, etc. Also, the player's "race" is broken into three factions (which you can choose in the full version) - all of which have their own special bonuses. But the political infighting among your factions brings a whole new level to the "develop and conquer" genre. Don't take my word for it - try the free version and then purchase the full version after you have experienced it!
My only real complaint is that the game can "drag" at the end. It would be nice if the developers would add a "mercy" ending whereby you have the option of accepting victory when you control a certain percentage of the galaxy and perhaps also have a certain advantage in number/technology level of existing ships. It would also be nice if there were a random map generator, but there are enough pre-set maps to keep a person entertained for years.
I look forward to future updates of this game!
Great game!! Plays like MOO, but better!!!!
Star Traders 4X Empires
This is, by far, in my favorite 3 4X titles on mobile; Star Traders, Starbase Orion & Autumn Dynasty Warlords. The consistant updates have made this game something really special, and one that I fully recommend to all 4X fans out there... GET IT!!!
I wound up picking this up because of Templar Battleforce and Heroes Of Steel. Both are fantastic games and have received phenomenal post-release support. Anyway, there arn't too many 4X titles on the AppStore that I'd fully recommend to someone who's looking for an incredibly deep and strategic experience, but Star Traders 4X Empires has definitely earned itself a spot on that very short list (joining Ascendancy, Starbase Orion and Autumn Dynasty Warlords). If you're a fan of the genre, I'd whole heartedly recommend this one. If you're new to the genre, or looking for something that will help get you into the genre, I'd lean more towards Warlords or Ascendancy. As deep and fantastical as Star Traders 4X is, I think I would have put the game away and maybe never played it again if I had yet to play a 4X game previously. While the tutorials in-game are decent, you'll probably want to read a manual or guide online before diving in (even if you are a seasoned strategy gamer). Though, that just makes it all the sweeter once it all clicks. =oD
