A mobile port of the complex, challenging and deep flash game, this app is definitely in its early stages but a satisfying play. It removes the resource management aspect that was the most frustrating but sometimes most satisfying part of the web game, which streamlines the experience. Needs some QOL tweaks but a solid game overall.

In some ways this is everything what i always wanted from a 'space-planet-colony' game. The planets and their pros and cons are realistic and interesting, the overall feel of the game is pretty good. There is no idle time here, the game only progresses when it is running, so i find myself running the game on my phone for 20-30 mins from the midgame. The prestige system begins too late. The interface is not really well optimized to phones. I recommend trying it, it is quite fun in the beginning.
I really enjoyed the browser version Heart of Galaxy: Horizon and I hoped that I would get the same experience on mobile. However, I cannot help but feel like the mobile version of this game just lacked something compared the browser game. Part of the fun of the browser game was managing the complex logistics chain of an interstellar civilisation. The decision to automate that in the mobile version by sharing resources between planets detracted from the overall experience for me.
