Very well done I started playing Ur-Quan Masters a few years ago, when a relative found that people had taken the original game and made it for pc. Since then, I found this app. I thought, "Why not give it a try?" I enjoy the challenge from new controls, and have only tested out combat since I am not far into this version of the game. One thing though, I can't figure out how to remove ships in super melee on Android. Am I missing something, or is it not there?
Fantastic I only ever play the melee mode but it is a perfect port of the desktop spaceship battles. Navigating with a virtual d-pad isn't as precise as wasd but other than want of a gamepad this is tremendous fun.
Good ol ware Like Gameloft crap it lacks controls on android... Unable to play on screen period (unless this October 2013 updates it) But imagine having some BeagleBoards on a router w/keyboards and mice.... NICE WORK now maybe an operating system can come out and our cores can be turned on!!
Close I really want to like this but the controls are way more difficult than they should be.
Wow, really? I have no idea how this popped into my head today, over 20 years since I played Starcon II, and almost 25 years since I first played Starcon. I have to credit the original Starcon with triggering my interest in IBM PCs, which, a few years later, led to my career in IT. I had a C64 since I was 14 and already loved computers, but it wasn't until I played Starcon on my friend's 286 around 1990ish, that I knew I had to get a PC so I could play it. A relative gave me a used TRS-80, which had 16 color monochrome graphics built in (advanced for its day believe it or not), but which clocked at only 4Mhz, slower than the 4.77 XT standard lol. My attempt to play Staron (with my 2, 360k floppies and NO hard drive), was pretty futile, and the ships moved around like snails! That forced me to figure out a way to get a 286, 8mhz, which was light years better, and enabled me to play Starcon to its fullest. By the time Starcon 2 came out not longer after, I had a 286, 16mhz, and it played beautifully. I loved that game, but shortly after I got busy with my new career and completely forgot about and lost the game. Thrilled that that it was eventually made open source and ported so widely!
THANK YOU!!!! I can't express enough how grateful I am to the developers et.al who have brought this game back to life on smartphones and PC's. This is, by far, the best space-faring adventure game ever made. With TONS of hours of voice acting, coupled with interactive outcomes based on the player's choices (good or bad), as well as the super melee mode for epic battles vs AI or another human player, it offers endless entertainment. I loved Star Control 2 on 3DO, and I love Ur-Quan Masters even more on android. Thanks!
