Reviews

“Aeon Command satisfies the things I want in a good strategy game: variability in play, upgrades and a tactical challenge that requires managing many aspects.”
8/10 – Seb, IndieGameHQ

“Aeon Command is a decidedly fun time that can take as little or as much time as you’d like. It’s easy to play, quick to jump into and loads of fun.”
Brian Rubin, SpaceGameJunkie

“Aeon Command is a surprisingly in-depth strategy game despite it being easy to play. I found myself playing match after match, just so I could throw points into my fleet upgrades to see how much of a difference it makes.”
8/10 – Vince Paone, Dads Gaming Addiction

Sometimes games are too expensive without worth of it. But sometimes games are too cheap and they worth much more. Aeon is a game of this kind. I got a discount on it and was like "why not to give it a try?". So I did and I was amazed by this simple but very good casual gameplay. It is very similiar to tower defence + MOBA games. Actually it is the wonderful indie child of Starcraft and Dota.

Pluses

+ Beautiful graphic
(it's simple but still has deep atmosphere of it)
+ Nice music and sounds
(it is not anoying like it happens in some casual games)
+ Great system of developing
+ Nice campaining and plot
(it's kinda usual but still keeps the smell of casual space strategy, could I ask for more?)
+ Multyplayer
(play this game with your friend is a good chance to solve some argues. Jokes aside!)
+ Additional plus... I don't know why. I just love it. :)

___
Would love to see in the game...
Actually not minuses at all, just my wishes.

- No modes
(there is the only map. And I'd like to see much more ways to fight with an enemy)
- No characters
(yes, the game is beautiful designed, but I would love to see some characters, like commanders or alians in there)
- No quests
(why not? There is a huge area to make some plot twiestes)

Thank you, delepores, for this great game. I will spend a lot of my free time in there. Quite so!

Space ships shooting other space ships, and guess what? Not one little girl showing you her underwear. Wouldn't you rather look at space ships? Yes you would.

Aeon Command is a game I've been lucky to follow throughout its original days in Desura, iOS (Iphone and Ipad2/Air) and now onto Steam. The game has made great strides and for what the game is intended to be, that is casual, it delivers. I'd recommend this game to anyone. Also, the music is unique in that I don't feel like my ears are being blasted at unnaturally loud volume levels. The music seals the deal, in the calm atmospheric tone paired with its simplified controls and overall ease of use.

Aeon Command is a streamlined space RTS. You start with a mothership and are tasked with collecting resources to build space craft to take on the opposing mothership. You really just have one collectable resource which is metal. You also have eneregy to use abilities but that is automatically generated over time or collected as power-ups from the wreckage of defeated enemy ships. Once you get some resources flowing you can start to build ships to assail your enemy. Once built your ships will automatically seek out and attack the enemy. You can't directly control combat but you can influence the battles using special abilities to buff your troops or debuff and even damage the enemy fleet. The trick comes down to what ships to produce when and what improvements to research. You can research better ships and improve your ships armor and weapons during play. You can also permanently augment the ships and abilities of the three different playable factions by spending upgrades collected in the campaign and skirmishes.
Aeon Command contains a single player camaign and a skirmish mode. The campaign is a tutorial and campaign in one. The campaign is pretty easy with a difficulty spike at the end. Once you start to really understand resource management and research you'll dominate the campaign in no time. I have not tried the multiplayer but I imagine it would be pretty fun to battle it out with a friend.
Overall a fun game. It probably won't occupy you for too long (the campaign can be beaten in a couple hours) but for a few bucks it's a pretty fun space game.

A very good space RTS game given the $2.99AUD price tag or the equivalent in your area! Like it says in the description this is a 'tug of war' style game where you gather resources and produce units to proceed towards the enemy mothership (base) and destroy it, engaging any enemy fighters along the way. You do not have direct control over your units, however you can turn the tide of battle with abilities which cost energy points to use that slowly regenerate automatically. These include abilities that can heal your ships, stun enemy ships, or nuke a small area. Graphics are pretty unsurprising given the budget and it looks like a glorified flash game, however thankfully for a strategy game graphics are easily forgiven, not to mention expectations are low at this price point. Games are short (~5-10min) making it the perfect bite-size RTS, you will not find a huge amount of depth here and some strategies can be exploited to easily win matches against AI but it even includes a multiplayer mode to play against your friends! A great value game, despite its shortcomings. 7/10

I highly recommend this game if you're someone who likes to tinker and you enjoy strategy-type games. It's a great investment, especially considering the cost. I've played one faction so far and am quite curious to try the others.

For a couple of dollars or as a thing you got with one of Humble's bundles, this isn't so bad, but it feels like it was on its way to a free games website with the other flash time-sinks and got lost, and turned up on Steam by accident. Again, it's not a bad game, but it's also quite a generic one.
I guess I'd recommend it on the basis of being Mid-Term Entertainment For Less Than the Cost of a Limonata.

Classic Tug-of-War RTS (without protagonist in play).

Space themed, three races available, each with different set of ships and skills.

Relatively short campaign available, after completing which you can only play single skirmishes. Every fight gives you points to upgrade your fleet a bit.

Good little game for its price. Not much more to it.

Similar to how the tower defense genre distills the RTS down to its immobile defensive elements, Aeon Command simplifies the RTS into a 1-dimensional clash of mobile offensive units.

There is simplified resource gathering, there is a simplified research tree, but mostly this is about spending your resources wisely and, most critically, TIMING and COMBINING your deployments for maximum effectiveness.

If you find RTS games a little too overwhelming, if you like tower defense but need a change of pace, or for that matter if you like Gratuitous Space Battles but want to be slightly more hands-on, this is a light and fun game with a decent amount of replay value. I'll be coming back to this game periodcally for quite a while.

Short learning curve, lots of tactical variety, perfect lunch break game.

A no-brainer on sale. No regrets at full price. Frankly, worth more. I'd love to see an expansion pack.

The player has way too little control to make this game fun. You build ships and you upgrade them, that's pretty much it. The AI takes it from there.

Sure, you have some special abilities, like for example choosing where to put a healing aura for your ships. It's just that your ships don't care, they will move out of that aura regardless of if it is the smart thing to do or not. You have no control, and that's annoying.

I do not understand why this game have so many positive reviews. I can't imagine this game being very much fun, even on a tablet. Maybe it takes some time getting used to or something, but I just think life is too short to make the effort with this one.

Aeon Command is surprisingly casual and the difficulty/ pace slowly builds up to be very complex and challenging. I play this to relax from time to time. Good buy.

This game is ok, I needed 6 hours to unlock all achievements (some grinding to unlock the last one). It's not an amazing one, but still quite fun !

I have been having a good time the past 5hours. :D good game nice price too.
It's pretty when you view the shots the ships make. Looking at the background images in really nice.
The concept is pretty direct. I just wish I had played multi-player so I could have kicked someone else's butt and not you the AI.
