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.
Command your officers and crew from the bridge of your star ship to travel, trade, and battle across the immense Star Traders Quadrant. Employ a wide variety of strategies as an Assassin, Bounty Hunter, Trader, Pirate or Smuggler. Can you manage your resources, crew and officers well enough to turn a profit in the complex economy that’s sprawling across the on-going interstellar conflict?
This epic space pirate RPG offers a deep and challenging world and economy to Star Trading captains. You must navigate the waters of Quadrant politics and chose sides among the constantly conflicting Factions, or take the risk to stay independent. Enjoy endless replay value in this deep space civ and trading simulation which allows you to take any path you want as a captain. Act as a pirate against the merchants using the great shipping lanes, join the Solar War as a military captain, or hunt targets across the Quadrant as a fearsome bounty hunter!

Hey guys. If you want to get free gifts from your phone check out (www.AndroidPrizes.net.tc) Just got myself a free $250 Visa gift card.
Complex and simple at the same time, and best of all NO PERMISSIONS.
This is one of the best free games I have downloaded. You get to play all aspects of the game even in the free version, plus there are no annoying in-app purchases. The game itself is great fun and you can easily kill a lot of time playing it. It has a good number of professions to choose from and a lot of difficulty levels, giving the game nice replay value. I would definitely recommend this game
I've played this game since around 2010 I wish I could get elite but sadly I can't. I still love how much this game has changed from update to update.
Loads of fun. Been playing for a long time and love this game. You're not by chance looking for a contributing artist are you? ;)
Best game ever
Some versions for me crash so i tend to be unable to play till a upgrade sometimes
