A really great trailer, that is probably what makes the game great, but after that trailer is gone the rest is just... Offline non workingess that is left.
The game does its own "check" if you have internet connection, if it fails that it doesn't let you go online, but it is flawed.
It doesn't even let you TRY to log in to their servers, nor give any useful information to you to help you troubleshoot the problem.

All it takes to break this system? Exit the game after first launch, then restart it.
So the multiplayer part is out of the window, the UI is very clunky and the functions aren't intuitive to use, basically a lot of saving is done, and those saves you can't use if you are in "Offline mode", so if you built a nice fleet it is all goners.

Overall, this game is now EOL (End Of Life) but the best part about it you can enjoy for free, and that is the launch trailer.
You want naval warfare you have to look at Dangerous Waters or SCS Fleet Command for something that somewhat works, but it is a dead market today with very few good ones popping up to replace the oldies.

This game might be decent with multiplayer but do take into notice when reviews say single player is left wanting. it really is.

How does it work then?

1) make a fleet
2) try to solve a scenario according to what you think will come at you.
3) get beaten or target escapes or get lucky and complete the scenario.
4) If you got beaten go back to drawing board - make a new fleet and with that new fleet + knowing exactly where enemies appear beat the scenario. Rinse and repeat.

I'm sorry but this is not fun.

Technically the game is good and made with the usual high quality that one can expect from the devs. but really, don't buy this just because it has a damn fine jazz trailer. Rarely do i regret buying something but this one really missed the mark. I really cannot recommend this for SP use at all.

Thumbs up. reason for that being is that this is my mistake here - not the devs.

This is now just a painful reminder to do your homework before buying more expensive stuff.

A fantastic naval turn-based RTS.

I've recently begun working my way through the campaign missions, and I have been pleasantly surprised at the overall quality of the graphics and gaming engine.

Features I like:
- Simple UI.
- Easy to pick up.
- Campaign doesn't require sitting down for extended periods to play through: you can stop and pick up at any time.
- Cross platform: I've got it on PC and Android. The saves go into "the cloud", and I can progress my save on any device.
- Co-op multiplayer. Tho I've not tried it yet, the videos I've seen of co-op look like good fun.

If you like RTS or turn-based games, or naval combat, give this a whirl.

Great game, with only ONE major issue, and it's not even about the game itself. Nobody is playing it, and that's too bad, cause it's a VERY VERY fun game. If you can get some friends to buy it with you, you're in for a good time.

This game was great. And then it ended.

That's the only major issue here. This game is not for anyone who likes to play singleplayer, the entire singleplayer campaign ends after 9 missions, even though the plot is on going - and it's not a good plot anyway. *Spoilers* Giant aliens basically. The turn based system can be painful when trying to travel long distance and the interface is glitchy at times. Also not enough customisation is available. In the tutorial it shows you all your defense options, and by the end of the missions you only unlock 3/4 of them - radar remains locked even when you beat the game. This game in general just was unfinished. A disappointment tha tParadox published this.

I got this on the humble bundle, otherwise I'd be really upset - it's so not worth the price unless you have friends who also own it, and then multiplayer might be fun.
