Om detta spel

Vi befinner oss i en avlägsen framtid där mänskligheten styrs av Räkenskapsministeriet, en förtryckande byråkrati som spårar, registrerar och beskattar alla transaktioner i människornas dagliga liv. Men ur paragrafrytteriet växer det fram en helt ny grupp av affärsmän som utmanar myndigheterna och börjar tjäna pengar, därav namnet Space Trader!

Som handelsman försöker du göra dig en förmögenhet av gastronomiska mått genom att köpa och sälja varor och ta till våld mot förtryckarregimen eller rentav ta på dig prisjägaruppdrag för att jaga rätt på kriminella bossar och deras underhuggare.

  • Handelskampanj: Du börjar som rookie och arbetar dig upp till handelsmästare genom smarta affärer, affärsuppgörelser på mörka bakgator, mutor, en välplacerad kula här och där och så vidare genom en utmanande enspelarkampanj i fem nivåer.
  • Tre utmaningar: Testa dina handelsfärdigheter i de tre unika bonusuppdragen Moon Madness, Free Trade och Red Eye Trader.
  • Från järnmalm till organ: Vänd motgångar till medgångar. Köp billigt, sälj dyrt. Möt efterfrågan med över 40 olika handelsvaror.
  • Ta ditt skepp och res: Besök sju planeter med tillhörande månar, gör små stopp på vägen och slå dig i slang med över 100 figurer.
  • Konflikter gör dig starkare: Använd dig av en mängd olika vapen, leta rätt på kriminella bossar och tjäna pengar på att sätta dit dem.
  • Lagbaserad tävling: Utmana vänner och familjemedlemmar. Sällan har samarbete varit så tävlingsinriktat!
  • Steam-prestationer: Lås upp sammanlagt 40 Steam-prestationer.

Honestly, the game completely lacks any and all substance. It's bland, forgettable, boring and tedious.

In the game, you play as an unnamed adventurer/trader, that sets forth to do one thing, become the Master Trader of the known universe/galaxy. One of the first missions is to find some chick that will give you a million credits on loan in order for you to buy a ship and start trading. You have a deadline when to get the million credits needed, and this formula repeats itself several times throughout the game, so much so that even the multiplayer is basically only that. Oh, and no one plays the multiplayer. In order to GET the million credits, you have to buy some commodities on Earth, and go to the Moon (which is just clicking a button) and selling your merchandise. Or you can do contracts. More on that later.

The trading system is very simple. You get to one of the merchants, you see the commodities they have for sale, and you buy it. There is a bar graph showcasing whether the marketprice for the item is declining or not, however the graph is pretty much nonsense, as the prices will not rise or fall following any kind of trend whatsoever, instead it is completely random. The trading is a pretty pathetic source of income, as even if you get lucky, you won't really earn a huge profit on anything.

Oh, you can also find random commodities strewn throughout the worlds you're at, so there's no real reason to actually BUY commodities, as you'll easily find everything from wool to featuses just lying about. Not even joking about those fetuses.

The second option for earning money is through doing contracts or helping people out via arduous tasks. To get a contract, you have to go to the bar, where the barman will give you a target which you have to kill. This is where the game gets a bit better, as it introduces SOMETHING into the game, however the FPS part is amazingly barebones and unrefined, and it feels much like a chore than anything else. The missions where you help people out isn't much better, as the case often is that you're simply collecting or buying X commodity and bringing it to some random dude or chick. Again, incredibly tedious.

The music is obnoxious and not memorable in any way (read: elevator music), it features abysmal graphics, the little mechanics the game has are horribly unrefined, the economic system is non functioning, trading is next to useless unless you get some very rare, expensive commodities from missions, and the entire game feels like a chore.

Overall, I'd give it a 3/10, would not recommend unless you have literally nothing else to do in your life.

This game is ok, so long as you understand that it is a very basic economic game with a little FPS thrown in. What sucks about this game is that your money resets after each section. So do not get a good sales route going thinking that you will have some extra cash to play with after you close out the level you are on.

It's clunky, unforgiving, and takes away all your money once you make "the deal." It makes no allowances for overshooting a financial goal. Removes any desire to play more unless you simply like looking for the best way to make deals.

Space Trader Merchant Marine was released in Oct 23, 2008. It boasts a score of 89% from a review by GameFocus saying, ""One of the best indie games of 2008. An innovative and addictive experience. Addictive, very fun and innovative are the best words to describe the game and the bottom line is this is a welcome addition to any gamer's library so buy this game and enjoy it."

This is very akin to the how 'reviews' reflected Bubsy 3D on its own packaging, to those that remember.

The game is broken down into four different areas, exploration, trading, time management, and fighting/bounty hunting.

The exploration is very limited, your only goal being to find crates of goods floating about, merchants, and the bar keep. The problem is that once you've gone through it once, you know where it all is, no variation, same boring bland walls, ect., and it honestly starts to feel like a chore.

The time management is very simple. Go to X location from y location = z time spent. You have a set amount of time in every 'chapter' to complete a set $$$ quota. Besides the time spent traveling through the travel menu, any time spent at a location does not diminish the time that you have left. And as thus, does not really give you any time pressure.

The trading is a joke, as, all you do it buy what's not doing well, and travel, and get guaranteed profit. It hardly reflects actual market value in the real world and makes the game largely unchallenging.

The fighting/bounty hunting is terribly bland and cycles through the same maps. Stupid AI, overpowered guns, and cheap kills, makes it horrid.

Now, all that said, this was made in 2008, 2-0-0-8, to be sure. Other games that were made in this period were:

Fable 2
Fallout 3
LittleBIGPlanet
Rock Band 2
Gears Of War 2
Spore
Grand Theft Auto IV
No More Heroes
Left 4 Dead
Professor Layton & The Curious Village

Compared to that list, the time period the game was released, and actual content in the game... it makes it look mediocre, a joke, something that belongs in a 2000 release.

English Review
This game is weak. The graphics are terrible. That this game is a FPS? You turn on the game and just walk to the characters, and trade. This game is not like me at all.
My rating 1/10.

Táto hra je slabá. Grafika je strašná. Že táto hra je FPS? Zapneš hru a len chodíš k postavám a obchoduješ s nimi. Táto hra sa mi vôbec nepáči.

Fun game and pretty cheap. The one problem I have with it is the chapter setup makes it seem rather limiting and you seem to lose all progress between the chapters.
That said, its fun for what it is. The bounty missions are a nice change, explore mode (i.e. walking around) has some nice suprises in it and trading (the reason I played in the first place) works well and is what I expected.
So buy, play, enjoy, just don't expect a deep several hundred hour trading game.

The best thing I have ever played in my entire life.
Changed me as a person.
When I brought that bannabis all the way to the moon- the game forced me to look inside my soul. All of my repressed memories, I confronted and beat. With the help of this game, I beat debt, depression, obesity, you name it.
cons: during a powerful moment, the world around me shuddered and a lamp broke, but it was okay because the devs sent me a antique lamp crafted from compressed stardust that will never break. I didn't even ask

I just found a box of dark matter lying on the moon. I traded it for some stems cells, which I brought to earth to trade for several hundred crates of bananabis. This is the greatest game I have ever played.

Really cannot recommend this game.
Once ST starts, during the intro, the game begins to stutter, freezes for 2 or 3 seconds, and does this every 5 to 10 seconds.
This makes the game unplayable.
For .49 USD it maybe worth it to some people to see if you can get ST to work but .49 USD is probably better spent on something else.

There are those who say it is because the game is older and will not run on modern computers to which I say, why?
Other older games on Steam run fine on my Windows 8.1 computer why not this one.
I suppose if you have an older machine with older hardware this maybe a game you can try.

At first this game seems like fun, especially for its low price. While I admit that I enjoy playing it, there is a ridiculously unfair difficulty spike during the FPS missions. Basically, anytime you have to go kill someone, you get tossed into this terrible FPS minigame where the guns are crap, your controls are crap, and the AI is beyond unfair.

Worst of all, if you fail an important FPS mission, you have to travel to another planet, then return to the previous planet to attempt the mission again, thus wasting a lot of time (the game uses time units to create an artificial challenge). I don't have a problem with that, except in the third chapter you are forced to make $20,000,000 for this woman who put a bomb on your ship. After you make the $20,000,000 you get an option to kill her instead. If you fail at killing her you have to travel away to reset the mission. But what happened to me is when I traveled away I ended up running out of time and failed the entire chapter.

The reason I kept failing to kill her is because she is unfairly strong (combined with the crappy FPS gameplay and unfair AI). But what I don't understand is that the game plays off your failure as though you actually failed, and not as though it's just resetting you back before you attempted the mission. So why doesn't she just blow up your ship? If your failure happens in real time then she should be aware that you're trying to kill her and it would make sense for her to just blow up your ship and kill you - except she doesn't. But the time factor still remains and you can still lose by running out of time (remember the time limit was for you to make $20,000,000 for the woman you're now trying to kill).

I don't know, maybe it's because I'm fresh off a rage quit, but the unfair FPS gameplay and unfair use of the time restrictions really piss me off. I was honestly enjoying the game up until it pulled this crap..

I bought Space Trader: Merchant Marine for 50 cents.
I expected a boring, short experience.
The game is exactly that.
Why did I buy it for $0.50?
…Because the entire game is worth… $0.50.

Overall, $0.50 spent reasonably well for a short experience. Now what do I do with this empty game?
