Classic SciFi RPG style play. Design your character and warp around a Universe with over 100 systems and new adventures at every turn!

Open ended RPG gameplay inspired by classic space games we loved to play during the 80's!!!

Be a Trader, Pirate, Smuggler, maybe a Bounty Hunter. Build your ship and your skills and follow your destiny! Trek through the stars on quests and adventures. Trade in space and at ports! Encounter mysterious alien races. Transport passengers but beware some may bring unwanted attention to you.

Dark Nova is the official conversion of the classic Palm Pilot game Space Trader with new graphical, sound, and gameplay content.

I really want to like this game being a fan of the original and spending countless hours on it. It's just hard to recommend it when it crashes to the main menu frequently without warning. This makes it hard to get any real enjoyment out of the game when you are constantly worrying if you will lose your progress.

I absolutely loved the original, and I installed it on all three of my Palm OS devices back in the day. This version would be fantastic, except it crashes for no reason. I will likely try for a refund. If the problems are fixed in the future, this program will get five stars from me.
