Explore strange new worlds. Go where no one has gone before!

Are you a fan of Star Trek or No Man's Sky? What would you do if you had your own starship? Where would you go?

Explore a huge persistent galaxy of one million stars and almost 6 million planets (5,999,792 to be exact). The galaxy is split up into 125 quadrants with each quadrant split into 729 sectors. There's a lot to explore.

Claim stars and planets and make them yours forever. Other starship captains will also see stars and planets that you claim and you will see theirs.

Full 3D universe - fly to any star/planet you see in your view and claim/explore it.

Your mission, as starship captain, is to locate ETI (extraterrestrial intelligence) signals in deep space. Galactic Command has detected the signals and will supply you with quadrant and sector coordinates, but it is up to you to scan the planets and locate the source of the signals.

Each of the one million stars is a unique solar system with a random number of planets and maybe a starbase. Each planet is unique and you can fly your starship down through the planet atmosphere and even land on the planets.

Collect beacons on the planet surface for points/credits/fuel/minerals. Collect all beacons on a planet for an extra reward. Sell your habitable planet discoveries and collected minerals for credits at any starbase. Use credits to upgrade your ship.

Refuel your ship and recharge your life support system by visiting starbases. Just fly to one of the green cubes around the starbase to dock with it.

Land on planets! Your starship will convert to a hovercraft where you can explore the planet surface and collect PODS for big points/fuel/minerals.

Build bases on the planets. Bases are saved on the backend server so others can see and use them as well. Planet bases act just like starbases - you can sell resources and upgrade your ship when you dock with one.

This is a game of exploration and discovery, not combat.

Inspired by No Man's Sky, explore a massive persistent procedurally generated universe with a huge number of unique planets on your mobile device.

Super Starship 3 is a complete ground up rewrite of my original Super Starship game. This version will run on devices with 2GB or more of RAM but performance will be optimal on A12 or higher devices.

ResponsibleReviewer ,


The dev ignored comments about how slow play can get when time is not speeded up. The time scale should be changeable by the player. Getting to a planet is wayyyyy too slow and it kills the fun.

Developer Response ,

Hi thanks for your review. Time scale is already sped up, a lot! Also, it is indeed changeable by the player by upgrading your ship speed. Do this by visiting starbases. Upgrading your ship speed can get you from planet to planet and from star to star much faster. Remember planets are really really really far away and if time scale was not added it would take days or months to reach them instead of minutes.
