Smugglers 5: Secession and Smugglers 5: Invasion have both received an update today to version 1.5.



Smugglers 5 is the fifth instalment in the turn-based science-fiction space trading game series. Will you be a greedy trader, an ambitious fleet pilot or a ruthless pirate? Board enemy ships, manage factories, conquer star systems and forge your own galactic empire - ultimately, your actions will have an impact on a galactic scale.

Smugglers 5 V. 1.5:

- New feature: In a spaceport bar you can now meet a fellow who sells you an amnesia drug for 3 million credits. If you accept, you can redistribute all your skill points as you see fit.
- Balance change: The chance of successfully using a special skill during a special combat event has been rebalanced. For most skills it has been increased.
- Balance change: Chance of asteroid and mine fields doing damage has been decreased.

Smugglers 5: Invasion Now On Steam


In case you have missed it, Smugglers 5: Invasion is available on Steam since 16th October.



The Invasion expansion adds a new alien race with new ships, new skills, new star systems, an improved combat system, improvements to the game graphics including screen resolution and much more. There are significantly more stories to explore in each new system, and full combat carriers with bombers, interceptors, and escort vessels. With hundreds of different skills, many starting professions, and the ability to change the course of the war, Smugglers 5: Invasion is the turn based answer to every star captain's dream.

Smugglers 5: Invasion starts where the original game ended. After years of civil war, the Federation finally emerged victorious, crushing all rebel activity. The galaxy looked forward to a period of peace, a chance to repair the damage of a long and bitter war.

Then came the Jalkath, a new alien race. To the humans, they looked much like the tigers of Old Earth, and they soon proved themselves to be every bit as cunning and dangerous. The newcomers were swift and brutal in their assault, deploying terrifying weapons and subjugating entire systems before their victims even knew what was happening. The Federation has rallied a defense against the invaders, as both sides struggle for dominance.

Now, war has returned to the galaxy. For the right kind of captain, it’s a whole new chance for fame and fortune. Will you fight for the survival of your race? Trade and smuggle goods to make your fortune? Or play both sides against each other for your own profit?

This is a different scenario and does not replace the original Smugglers 5: Secession, which plays in a different timeline.

The galaxy is at war - the Federation, the Coalition, the Outer Rim systems and the criminal Syndicate battle for control. It's a dangerous life for a pilot on the front lines, but it can also be a lucrative one - are you an honest trader, or does smuggling illegal goods sound more profitable? Will you join the war effort for your faction, set up your own empire or simply explore the galaxy?

  • Explore the galaxy through a fast turn-based travel and combat system
  • 4 factions; 6 professions with new, unique skill trees; 100+ different skills and a revised skill system
  • 30+ spaceships and encounters ranging from fighters up to battleships, cruise missiles and star bases
  • Non-linear war and campaign system. You can influence the war!
  • Manage a crew, board enemy ships, become Admiral and command whole fleets
  • Plunder planets and pirate outposts, conquer space systems and even rule your own empire!
  • Supply and demand based trading with the storyline and campaign influencing prices
  • More than 80,000 words of interactive non-linear storylines (that´s about the size of two novels)
  • Advanced text generation technology and new planet exploration short stories make every game different.
  • Marry a beautiful wife and have children
  • Optional compatibility mode to allow blind players to enjoy the game
  • and much more ...

The six most important new features compared to Smugglers 4:
  • You can now start and rule your own empire
  • Manage your own factories or pirate outposts

Oh I was expecting so much from this game, but at the same time, I had so many doubts if it would get boring quickly. After a discussion in the forums where the developer himself almost started a fight because he thought I should just try the game as it is already so cheap (???), my curiousness was bigger than my intelligence and I went on and bought the game.

Yeah, it was fun for about 1 hour... then it started to get repetitive. So it should cost around 0.99$. Yeah, there is SOOOO much you can do in the game, but it's mostly about semantics and limiting standard stuff. If you design a game where you can be a rogue, a warrior or a magician, but then make you select all your skills so that you can make a magician with rogue clothes, it's only semantics. Oh but wait, if we cut off one hand of a magician, then people will think he is different. No he is just less fun that way. That's almost what's happening in this game. Yes, you get a bigger ship if you work hard, and the game just changes all other things so that the gameplay stays the same. Yes, you can be a trader, a trader, a trader and a trader, and also a disabled trader (pirate).

And on a side note: when I went looking if the DLC would improve the game for me, I discovered that the developer has again been fighting on the forum, banning people who do not agree. Not that that should change your opinion on the game, but do you really want to support such a developer?

If you like to buy low and sell high. Then you like to play trading games like I do. I picked this game up after spending a few minutes with the demo. Since I have played close to 12 hours. The majority of that was playing the free trader. What I have found is the trade system is extremely weak. Once you spend a while in your starting system. As a free trader you start off in a fighter craft unable to warp out of said system. Profit comes slowly and the first warp ready corvette cost over 100 thousand credits. During this stage of the game profit per unit is anywhere from single digits to a 100 credits. However after you get a corvette and explore for a little while. You will find that certain systems produce Antimatter, Diamonds, and Super Ore. These systems are where you spend most of your time after wards. Buying those items and running to the closes invaded system. Where you can sell Antimatter for 1000 to 2000 profit per unit 600 or more for diamonds, and 150-200 profit for super ore. This allows for extremely easy progression and quite easily shows what this game lacks.

The main thing the game truly lacks is an assortment of ships. There are 4 classes fighters, corvettes, destroyers, and cruisers. Besides a few faction or class based starting, capital ships there are 2 or 3 options per level. With one per level with a decent cargo hold, as a trader I would have hope for more options. At the highest level ship you will have around a 2000 thousand unit cargo hold.

It isn't to small if all you do is trade. However as you level up you get the option of owning companies. Sadly it is utterly simplistic to my knowledge there is only two branches. Synthetics factories which can be upgraded to produce robotics then engines. This requires super ore and is the only other factory branch that I know of. Super ore factories can be upgraded to produce diamonds and antimatter. This branch of industries require robotics.

I would like to set up a production chain. Where I can produce super ore to ship to my robotic factories, then ship my robotics to an antimatter factory. There is no other way for you to ship your produced goods automatically. You are limited to automatic purchasing those required units in system or galaxy wide. This of course increases the cost of the factory. You can also automatically sell at a loss of 50 percent. You can of course ship the stuff to and from yourself. However this causes the final product antimatter to simply stock up while you resupply the other factories. After you stock them up enough to give you some time you will find you have already produced thousands of antimatter. Or in my case 10 thousand antimatter so as you can see a ship with cargo capacity of around 2k will make a killing with all that antimatter. However I have a stockpile of antimatter growing by the week. Once you tack on travel time to and from contested systems. Which can take months your stockpile has grown, and the robotics and super ore factories are in need of supervision. In the end it is just easier to automate the robotic and antimatter factories and closing the super ore one. They will operate making you a little profit unless the system is under attack. Where as if it had been flushed out and you could ship produced goods to and from systems automatically. And had access to capital sized freighters you could simply set around all day making billions.

So while the trading is fun it is short lived and the trader end game of companies is shallow at best. I would still consider this game worth the price of admission.

Great concept. Its like FTL meets Dope Wars. The interface could use a little bit of help. When it comes to buying a selling inventory, it's difficult to get a baseline on the prices of the surrounding planets, and by the time you get there you might find you've wasted a lot of dough. Combat seems very simplistic and a little too much chance involved. When confronted with a ship that has you severely outmatched, it would be nice to have at least a chance to get away.

I picked it up thinking it would be phone esq type of a game, and it is. But, it has some surprising depth to the gameplay. Now, if only the dev would add in some abilities to adjust graphics to fit a regular computer monitor, it would be a nice little way to kill 20 minutes here or there.

I was a bit overwhelmed at first by all the details of this game but it didn't took me long to realize that the basics are simple and that what made me feel overwhelmed was in fact the possibilities offered here and what makes this game great.

I'm just starting to play this game and it's the first time ever I really get that feeling of being a real smuggler. I recommend starting with a backstory to guide you at first as it really helps but once you understand the game you see the possibilities are endless.

I enjoy turn-based games in which I can take my time before to act and this game offers this to you WITH the excitment of building your "underground" carreer. I've only scratched the surface and can't wait to dig further.

One thing for sure, no other game can be compared to this one. THIS is the smuggling game.

In my opinion this is a more character-driven (and way less hectic) version of FTL and in some ways is very much the intergalactic version of Sid Meier's Pirates. For those who don't mind a turn-based and strategic/creative thought combat system I highly recommend this. Happy pirate-raiding along the trade lanes you rapscallion space dogs!

I've been playing these game since I was a kid and I love them. While not graphically appealing to todays standards it makes up for it in depth and gameplay. Want to be a Pirate? Go ahead. Smuggler? Of course. Bounty Hunter? Go get 'em. Humble Trader? Go make your fortune. You can even choose to join up with one of the major factions to help them take over the galaxy or even start your own Pirate Faction and take the galaxy for yourself. I love this game.

This is retro rpg-strategy at it's best. Tons of text content. Six classes with their own skill tree with four possible factions (5th secret one). Career options. Combat is turn based.

All-in-all I give it 8/10. I would have liked to have seen more leveling options (once you hit Admiral or faction equivalent that's it). If you've picked your skills correctly though it turns into a game of "i'm bad ♥♥♥ and I want your solar system" style galactic conquest.

I tremendously enjoyed this game! I think it is one of the most underrated games on Steam. The series dates back to 2000 or 2001 and each game in the series has been more and more improved. It´s very polished (dev still making regular updates and listens to community) and has a great depth. I cannot understand some of the reviews here. I think they have been fooled by the easy accessibility and did not play long enough to get to the advanced features. In the base game you can fly everything from a fighter up to battleships. I don´t understand how one review can say they aren´t in the game. Also each profession has some unique skills, for example a trader can flee the battle and has special skills to defend and delay combat until reinforcements (which other game simulates reinforcements??) arrive or a pirate has special abilities focused on making sure exactly this doesn´t happen.

If you are looking for a very addictive 2D version of Elite, Pirates or Freelancer, don´t look no further. However if you prefer 3D or very good graphics, you have to look somewhere else.

I don´t want to write a long review, I want to go back playing! It´s a very polished game (except graphics). Kind of a 2D, turn-based blend of Pirates and Elite. There are a lot of different skills, some for example allow you to get away from combat (but at a cost, like dropping your cargo), other´s allow you to better defend yourself or even to board and capture other ships, pirate outposts or planets!

Even at the current discounted price of $3.39 I would not recommend buying this game. If it didn't have the bugs, and was half that price I normally would say it would be a good buy. But, go read the forum and see who you would be giving your money to, and make an informed decision.

I dont understand how this game sucks me in. but it does. it's like a game from the early 90's mnimal grfx but big on story and next-turnitis sets in faster then u can expect.

Bottom line: it's fun. they should make a mobile version.

I am going to keep my review in the style of a little "log book". I hope you like it. If you do, please upvote!

Okay, here is my "log book" report:

Hour 1:

Cons: Graphics look a bit overly simplistic, but I didn´t had a single crash. I found a small bug or two, but nothing really important. A few spelling mistakes.

Pro: When browsing the profession selection, I cannot remember when I felt such an excitement the last time. You can choose among a broad range of professions from trader to pirate. Each
one has different starting skills, a different skill tree depending on the character and this is even more modified depending on the faction you choose. That´s cool! You do not need to
play a guy too (although I did), but can choose to play a female protagonist.

With most professions (not all) you start with a small ship without jump engines. The next 30 minutes you can explore the starting system and try some easier missions in order to get the money to buy a bigger ship with engines capable of leaving the first star system. If you start as a fleet trader or officer, you already start with a bigger ship and can skip this first episode.

Hour 2:

Cons: see above.

Pro: This is fun. I´ve been raiding through the ranks (you get a uniform and can tag medals etc. on it) and got a destroyer class spaceship. I´ve hired a crew and now I am going to try boarding and capturing other ships! Yeeehay!

Hour 5:

Cons: see above.

Pro: I am trying to get a battleship, which appears to be the biggest ship you can get in the base game.

Hour 7:

Cons: see above.

Pro: Done. I have conquered my first star systems and I am about to finish the fleet officer career. Cannot wait to try playing as a pirate and conquer the galaxy all for myself!

(to be continued - still great ;) )

I have bought this game from the devs website before it was on Steam and got a free key. I've been playing all games the dev made. The first one when I was still a kid and I love them. They won´t win any prizes graphically, but they really make it up for it with depth, polishing and gameplay. The game is exactly like in the feature list. Best of all the dev is really someone you want to support. He listens to the community and you can really talk to him in the forums. I don´t know what jerks those negative reviewers are, but if you must, check it out yourself with the free demo and make your own opinion.
