The core concept is fun, but progress is way too slow and requires too much work. Very quickly everything gets expensive, and there's very little passive income. To make money you must actively tap to send your ships around, waiting a minute or two for each trip. A trip might make you 50 credits, but play for a week and you'll be hard pressed to find anything that costs less than 10,000. The pace of the game becomes glacial, and unlocking anything new takes days of effort.

This is truly an excellent game. You feel like you start out a little bit slowly, but since there's a lot to learn in this one, that's not necessarily a bad thing. As you progress you get more ships like miners & transports which are your interplanetary & eventual interstellar traders... They're the ones that bring home the cash & after a bit, you'll want to build a battleship or two. This is not a "photo realistic" game: it focuses on planning, strategy, & expanding. Highly recommend it!

I'm not one for 5 star reviews, but this game deserves it. I've been playing since 2017. In that time, I have really enjoyed the game. The combat loop is thoughtful and strategic, while remaining simple. Some mechanics, such as the inability to stop moving mid-move, might be frustrating to some, but force you to think ahead and learn enemy behavior. Overall, the game is spectacular. The graphics are pretty, the strategy is good, and it's relaxing. Keep up the good work, Andreas!
