"Space matters"

Reviewed by / Oct 28, 2013

Star Traders RPG is a retro-inspired space-themed RPG

Be ready to conquer the space through war, diplomacy or economic supremacy. In Stars Traders RPG you embody a space captain which goal is to boost the power of his faction, grow the fleet and bring the other factions under control.

Your adventure starts by choosing the captain name, the starting profession (up to 10: spy, explorer, merchant...), the starting level of difficult (up to 8 from basic to "impossible"), the starting ship and the starting faction. Each faction is powerful in one field: military, politics, industry, trading... Choose the one that fits you best and spread it out the space.

You're the captain, so the ship follows your orders: move it from one planet to the next, invade enemy's bases and secure the area. Green sectors are safer than those marked with read beacons but you can move wherever you want. However, take into account that you can run out of water-fuel, what you need for flying, landing and docking.

Obviously, you also need money for purchasing supplies, repair or upgrade your ships and entertain your crew. Bear in mind that this is a manager-like RPG. Thus, You must show off your management skills in a comprehensive way.

Graphics won't amaze you, it's true. Star Traders RPG is set in top-down retro graphics, with that touch that scenery that reminds first 90's space RPG games. If you are OK with that, you will enjoy the game due to the level of detail and complexity.

    There is a really big learning curve but once you get over the hump you will be hooked. There is an excellent trade economy and political structure within the game that adds to the depth and complexity. The only issue i have with this game is there is no true ending so after you become a successful ship with loads of cash it gets boring. I would love it if in the sequel there are scenarios you can

    I absolutely love this game. Its so intricate and yet simple. The game is as complex as you want it to be. Just mindlessly play a till you die or try to work for specific guilds. Make sure to buy lots of water/fuel.

    I've played this game since it's early stages and simply love it. I've always enjoyed the style of trading space travel. Not a lot of games complete it like Star Traders. Worth the payed upgrade. Lots of achievement challenges. Every playthrough is a different game, with new struggles and progression. If you're looking to pick something up that'll take away your boredom, this is the game for you.

    Gameplay is awesome, turn style battles, so many different missions, constant changes between faction conflicts, so many planets to explore, many different space ships to seize, buy, and destroy. Greatest RPG for mobile ever...
