I hope this is a temporary review. I literally can't play this game, because I can't type the server name in, because the keyboard disappears every time I go to type on it. I'm on an Alcatel One Touch. Please, please address this somehow. I've even found people interested in playing with me!
THANK YOU! This made a recent 31st bday spectacular. I cannot say enough. Keep on developing and i would be happy to pay another three dollars for a remake by the same developers. Runs great on asus tft101 with zero lag, cooling issues, or battery issues.
This game fits full-size Artemis onto a tiny screen about as well as I could expect. Not as good as a real computer, but playable and portable. However, I ran into a very nasty bug - if you take damage, the screen zooms in suddenly and you can't see any of the buttons you need to click on. Which makes it impossible to do important things like target weapons in a battle. So in its current state, I can only recommend the phone version for roles that don't have a lot of urgency in combat. It's great for Captain, Science, and Comms, and the touchscreen interface is great for those roles, but Helm and Weapons are a bad idea.
Requires 6 copies to play The app description should be changed so that the first line reads: "Note: Not a standalone game. Requires 6 paid copies on 6 devices to play". That little tidbit shouldn't be buried in the long expanded app description. It is critical information!
I adore this game. It's what made me finally break down and put money into an app. But alas, on my phone, the game crashes 100% of the time the server hits "start game." I wish, wish, wish this worked, because i want to play it on my phone so badly.
Needs 5 screens! It is possible to solo play using multiple devices, but better in groups. The fun part comes when one guy screws up and the whole crew has to fix it. I have a copy on my desktop and hooked up 5 displays, epic game like no other. One day I hope the shaders can improve, but that will increase system requirements.
Player carriers and fighters! Loads of new ships, including all the Ximni ships, plus new TSN Juggernaut and TSN Mine Layer. Big changes to the GM console, and GM script options. New Customize Ship screen, gives you a better way to choose your ship, name it, and change its accent color.
This is an update to 2.4 containing a bug fix for a crash on helm when using jump instead of warp.
