Command your officers and crew from the bridge of your star ship as you 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?

Upgrade and experience the Elite edition! You can copy all your captains to the paid edition! Elite includes more than 200 new planets, more than 2,000 new sectors in the massive galaxy, over 400 new ships, twice as many rumors and officers, and more unique art.

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 choose sides among the competing Factions, or take a risk and 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!

Star Traders is a turn-based strategy role playing game (RPG) inspired by games such as Space Trader, Master of Orion, Elite and many other classic titles. If you enjoy retro games, adventure and tactics games, Action RPG or Sci-fi RPG with complex depth like Master of Orion, you may enjoy the Star Traders space trading simulation.

I've been playing this game for years and always install with every new phone...its a near-perfect mobile game, reminding me of the Sid Meier classic Pirates!, but set in space. With the sliding difficulty scale, it's as challenging as you want it to be and provides many hours of game play whether in small increments (using the save option) or a marathon session. The Trese Brothers don't disappoint and offer an incredible value in all of their games, though this one remains my favorite.

Wow. What an amazing experience. I often get lost in this game for longer than I ought to. The only thing that would complete this game for me would be the addition of more visuals; Some artwork and scenery to go along with the different action screens that vary by planet and facton would be excellent. Regardless, it stands out in my mind as an acheivement, and a shinning example of what mobile gaming could be.

Best devs of any mobile game I have ever played. They bring their passion of gaming into the games they create. This game is a true unlimited playthroughs game. No playthrough will ever be the same, as the map is constantly evolving around you. This is the first game. The second Star traders frontiers. If you enjoy this game check out the second it's even more mind bombing. Hard learning curve, but worth it. Wiki has the info you need or discord. Hope you enjoy as much as I do.
