"A crowded place isn't as dangerous as outer space emptiness"

Reviewed by / Nov 22, 2012

A futuristic multi-genre game

Quite in the way of a portable version of Bioware's ME series, this game combines RPG touches like experience points, dialogue options and romance with strategic options as trade routes and commerce. Of course, sometimes diplomacy won't be a feasible option and the the pew-pew bang-boom action will start, though you won't last for much unless you have done your homework and equipped your ship accordingly. Storyline is deep as a wormhole, 'cause no one knows where it will get you to (oooh, a pun!)

On the other hand, there are a few glitches here and there (check options menu to adjust your detail level) and the automated translation does more for evil rather than for good. UI can be improved with smaller screens on mind. Lastly, it's a pity that casual players will surely ignore this jewel of mobile gaming because it's management options, namely ammo, cargo and skills can overwhelm anyone not used to games more complex than sticking three balls of the same color or throwing shrieking colorful stuff onto chuckling green stuff. The lack of customization options will always be a major flaw in a RPG, and this won't be an exception.

Even when not all is a bowl of cherries, we feel like if we had found a precious antiquity hidden in the middle of a flea market. A four out of five for a game which worst sin is to be far from mobile gaming standards, as if it was designed to be played in the comfort of your sofa only.

This is the paid, ad-free version, though can always check the free version and then upgrade it.

    This game has a lot of promise. Very like the old elite series I spwnt so many hours playing in the 90's but who the hell designed the controls? Very difficult to get the hang on. If you can get passed that then this could be the game for you

    Please refund. Had to download over mobile and it took longer than my fifteen minute window. Also played through tutorial but just couldn't get into it. Very ambitious design though. :)

    Was dumb to expect even Amiga era elite type of game. Controls are way too weird and unintuitive.
