Used to be fun... Game went from easy is fun and consistently can win and normal mode may lose to easy is hard and normal you can lose in 1 minute flat as every AI comes for you directly. More planets don't give the bonus they use to, sound settings reverted several times, and back use to exit game from menu, now it may or may not. Very frustrating, especially since I paid for the game some time ago as I enjoyed it thoroughly.
This game is clever strategy at it's finest I love how the lines seemed random but once you learn the lay of it, There's nothing as satisfying as taking an enemy's base right as they try to take yours but are shut down cause you grabbed their connection. I wish the advanced mode had a bit of tutorial because I couldn't figure it out. Needs more levels, and maybe a special attack of types or powerups though. But other than that this game is fun, addictive, and I was ultimately satisfied with the inexpensive purchase for the amount of enjoyment I get
Updated: still broken. I've owned and played this game for years, I used to recommend it. Advanced mode was always a mystery, but I could play regular mode and I was pleased enough with that. Now I can't even play regular mode. A huge world on easy difficulty used to be an easy 15 minutes, and an almost guaranteed win. I can't beat it anymore. The AI gets greater capture health than I do, and seems to capture faster then I can even with all stats maxed out. I had a 31 to 8 advantage, and had to quit because I stalemated.
Good game! not as hard as some say. I beat hard in 12 minutes while falling asleep. If you're undecided, try it. I've played this game for years and have always enjoyed it through a handful of revisions, I also would like a short tutorial for advanced mode, I never could figure it out either. I wonder if the avg user who wants the code opened for whatever reason, knows what goes into making something like this... I wonder if they would be so eager to accept criticism and feature requests as the average thumb dragger is to offer them. To the dev team, congrats on making a fun game. Thanks
*1/23/17--another update changing the game. I was able to occasionally won on hard difficulty setting. I now cannot win on normal. Other colors gang up and make it impossible. This game has miraculously gotten worse over time. *1/4/15--new update makes this game suck! Playability has radically changed and not for the better. Wish there was a way to rollback updates* Unique game as far as what I've seen among games. Definitely requires strategy, but you get the hang of it.
I used to love this game but I recently installed it but I honestly can't even beat this game on easy anymore. Every ship literally goes to my base as their fist base to take over so I'm the one taken out first. I really regret buying the premium version and I wish I could have my money back because there are no words to describe how much I hate this game now.
