Game is really enjoyable. I can’t believe how much time I spend playing. But there are flaws. The interface isn’t perfect as has been pointed out on many reviews. You will often try to start a task and end up selecting an officer by accident negating everything you were trying to do. The start task menu is too close to the select officer menu which leads to that problem. Sending out fleets takes some getting used to but I’d actually leave that as is. The other problems are major slowdown & occasional crashing. Despite the update that supposedly fixed this issue it still happens. The slowdown becomes really problematic after playing half an hour or so. I still enjoy the game and hope these issues are fixed soon. Still recommend trying it to those who like jrpg with a sci fi and base management twist.

This is a spectacular game, with great strategic depth ( particularly when assembling your fleet and preparing their ability selections for battle ). Despite some stability bugs I enjoyed this so much I am on my second playthrough, at a higher difficulty level. Speaking of which, make sure to challenge yourself to do the same! You really start to have to plan out each fight around weaknesses and strengths that you might not otherwise have done. Now a note on stability: a recent update did improve it, but I think a long running game still does slow down over time ( although it looks like it is getting better ). The UI could use a couple more tweaks to be friendly to phones, a good place to start might be adjusting how captain tokens are displayed once you get a large number of them.

Good game that perhaps I am underrating, but it has some issues on my IPad. It crashes fairly often, and I understand the patch I’m currently downloading should help that. However, my main beef is that the game quest monitor instructs me to do things, and I do them but get no results. Example: I’m told I should upgrade to category 2 spaceships, so I hit the upgrade button in the space station and go to the ship building screen...nope, still only cat 1 ships. Perhaps I am missing something else that needs to be done? Ok, I’ve edited my review from a 2 to a 5. No more crashes, and as I noted above I was indeed not finding the upgrade that allowed me to construct tier 2 ships. The game is a lot of fun with a lot of strategy for a tablet game! My only remaining criticism relates to the lack of a more comprehensive guide for old guys like me to look up how to do certain things in game.

Very Salty. The game is unbearable to play. First part of the game. Was fun and smooth. And as I porgress in the game. App crashes started happening. First its every three events or soo. Now its every event. Sometimes it even crashes in the middle of a fight. Logically I decided to save each fight or anything I do important. But now even saving the game crashes the app. And whats worse. It corrupted my recenr savefile and IT's GONE. Ive already repeat quest 2-3 times just to pass it due to constant crash. Now I am forced to start from 10 quest back. Really salty. To the point that I will delete this game. Don't waste your time playing. Maybe worth it with PC but not on Mobile. Doing quick search in the internet I found thatIts been a problem since 2016. And obviously its not fixed. There was even a support that mentioned having at least 2GB free space can help prevent crashes (Which I did). I deleted some of my favorite apps to make 3Gb free space. Not I just regret everything uuuuuuugh. I want my money and my time back🙄😒

This is the first review I have ever wrote for Apple products. I love this game. Furthermore, I love that I can run it in the background all day. I can pick up and play it when I have time, and I don't have to worry about accidentally losing data because it automatically saves my game often. My battery isn't drained by having it open in the background (or even playing the game, really). This game is the best port to IOS I have ever played. The gameplay is easy to understand, the writing is fun and hilarious, and the combat is exciting and challenging. The replay value alone was well worth my $7. Please keep making updates as you see fit, but I really cannot wait until the sequel or maybe another tactical sim by Massive Damage 🤓
