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

  • 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!

  • Optional compatibility mode to allow blind players to enjoy the game
  • and much more ...

At first, the game seems incredibly complex. There are many ships, faction politics, a trade mechanic with a black market aspect, tons of skills and abilities, and a large map.

After a couple hours of playing, you'll realize that everything that looked good is actually poorly executed.

The combat plays out pretty much the same every time regardless of your ship and skills (which are badly balanced). You have almost no control over the combat. Everything feels very random and there is no strategy apart from picking the best skill out of the random pile of them that the game gives you every turn. Not that any of this matters. There are a few mid-level ships that are undeniably better than everything else. After a little experimenting, you’ll have a ship that can’t lose unless the random number generator has something against you.

The faction politics are almost pointless. You only need to get friendly with the factions if you want amnesty for committing crimes. You won’t be committing any crimes unless you have a combat oriented ship. If you have a tough ship, you generally don't need amnesty. It's a self-defeating cycle of uselessness.

The trade system could not be more boring. You go to a system that sells something cheap. Buy it, fly to somewhere where it is expensive, sell it, rinse, and repeat until you can afford a ship with a bigger cargo hull. Then you get the exciting experience of doing exactly what you were doing before but in larger quantities. The black market is the exact same, except you might have to a do a little more fighting.

The skill tree is incredibly frustrating as it forces you to buy a number of useless skills before you can get to the good ones. The useless skills will then fill up your queue during combat with abilities that you will likely never use and make your life harder. No, you can't disable abilities that you have already unlocked.

Apart from the differing commodity prices, there is no real difference between the systems. The factions constantly fight, pirates are everywhere except for the starting areas, and random piles of money float through space, making it far more profitable to aimlessly bounce around between planets than to actually play the game.

The most frustrating aspect of the game by far is the class system. At the start of a campaign, you have to choose a faction and a player class. The classes determine the skills that you can pick. Only certain classes can unlock the skill to buy a business while others can do things like invade systems. The class system only exists to force you into multiple playthroughs and extend playtime in order to see all of the content. The irony here is that there isn't much content to begin with.

TL;DR: You’ll have more fun with a free flash game. Don’t buy this unless you hate yourself.

This game is exactly what you think it is. Its a space sim where u can be anything from a trader to a pirate. 4 different factions, politics. Buying and selling goods you name it. the combat system is smart and turn based, and its an open sandbox where you do what you want. Would reccomend very much. With the current sale price of 1$ its a steal!

Доброе время суток всем геймерам!
Итак, небольшой обзор по этой игре, которую я купил из чувства ностальгии по шедевральной Elite.
Увиденные мною возможности игры:
Выполнение многочисленных и никогда не кончающихся миссий различной сложности и с разной наградой.
Возможность модернизировато собственный корабль на свое усмотрение.
Отыгрывать роль за ту или иную фракцию или профессию - от мирного торговца, до злобного пирата.
Мотаться по различными солнечными системам в поисках приключений - не сдерживают никакие сюжетные рамки.
Компании на прохождение как таковой нет, но в принципе она и не нужна - ибо игра с самого начала заявлена как "изучение огромного мира".
Графика достаточно простая, зато игра стабильна и не вылетает.
Английский язык достаточно просто чтобы не пришлось лезть в словарь, если есть хоть небольшие познания в английском.
Бои проходят в походовом режиме. Во время своего хода можно сделать сразу несколько вещей - выпустить ракету, поставить помехи, выстрелить из лазера, активировать баллистический компьютер.

В общем и целом: игра неплоха для того чтобы убить время и стоит своих денег.
Рекомендую всем кто любит космические симуляторы.

It's a decent little game to pass the time, considering the price. While I wouldn't exactly call it an outstanding game by any stretch of the imagination, I would firmly place it in the category of: 'If you have 10 bucks to spare, some time to kill, and like strategy games with a sprinkling of story and RPG thrown in, why not?'.

It comes with a quick little tutorial to help you get started, which is nice. However I would still strongly recommend either reading or glancing through the simple manual as well, because there may be things that are of interest to you that you'd want to do and have no real idea about otherwise. Such as starting your own faction. That however is something that will take several hours and much dedication.

There are 4 factions that you can join and level up with, however if you don't join any you can go about doing what you want (minus missions) and still level up as a civilian. If you eventually join your ranking will carry over to your new faction, so at least you don't lose anything.

It's no surprise that virtually everything in the game revolves around money. The only things that don't are your own individual skills depending on which profession you choose - however note that it can take quite a while to level up and get new skills, so for some people the game might get a bit tedious, or even monotonous. You need to 'level up' 3 times before you get new skills - and some pretty big skills are on opposite ends of entire skill trees that require you to have prerequisites. So expect a lot of grinding.

If you're someone who likes games based upon their graphics - my suggestion is to move along. There won't be anything new or fancy here, and if you have a really high resolution you're going to be doing a fair amount of squinting. Otherwise you can make it full screen and squint again as everything gets stretched out. If you see something once in the game, you'll see it a thousand times.

Same for the sounds. The music will tend to cut out at various random intervals, but strangely enough I really only noticed it when it suddenly stopped. Otherwise it was fairly forgettable. Much the same for the sound effects.

There are a few instances of flavor text missing, usually in the 'quotes' area stating that this is an early access version even though it isn't. Also, if you're the one who tends to shudder every time you come across misspelled words or bad grammar in a game, then prepare to shudder a few times. Thankfully most of it is fine, but you'll notice a few spots here and there - and plenty of walls of text. Though considering the resolution I'm not really surprised.

All-in-all it's a fun little game to pass the time, or if you have that space rpg urge. It's 'just one more turn!' addicting for the first hour or two until you get the routine down. You might get to switch it up when you learn a new skill or get a new ship, or get a battle with a random event - but otherwise nothing major happens for the first large chunk of the game.

With enough dedication you can eventually reach the higher ranks and unlock more activities, but you'll have to be able to slog through a fair bit of early grinding, -especially- if you choose the civilian route.

My final score for this is a fairly decent but not great 6.5/10. It will keep you entertained for a while and will be worth it to those who are willing to put the time into it - assuming you can put up with old-fashioned graphics and sounds for quite a few hours.

For the rest of you who can't do that, I'd recommend waiting to see if it goes on sale later. At 10 USD it's still an iffy buy, but if it ever goes to 7 or less, I'd say grab it.
