App description: Spaceward Ho! is a strategic game of awesome scope. You control the entire military and economy of a spacefaring race. Your goal: explore and colonize the galaxy.

Unfortunately, you are not alone. Alien enemies bent on galactic conquest will oppose your expansion. You fight them by developing new technologies and expanding your empire, or you can ally with them to turn enemies into friends.

Terraform newly discovered worlds or mine their natural resources. Maneuver your starship fleets, both in defense of your own systems and in offensive strikes against the evil aliens. Your strategic decisions will determine the fate of the galaxy.

Based on the original Mac/PC/Palm game and updated for iOS.

For new players, read the Help file and also watch the tutorial video online. Please contact us on Twitter @SpacewardHo or Our Website, or send us email.

Hi,
this new version is a great step!

Only three wishes left:

1. iPhone Support!

2. A way to save games in the iCloud ... it would be great to play the same game on different devices.

3. Multiplayer!

Then it is perfect!

iPhone version

I'll be posting in the iPhone/iPod forum too, but I wanted to post here. We are looking for just a couple more testers of the iPhone version. We are going to be doing a beta release this week. It is playable, but will have some more changes as we get along. Don't sign up unless you can provide feedback and play the game.

Here! Within the next four weeks I have plenty of time ... (from the end of next month I have too much work) but I have still only my 4s (you should have the ID) ... my 1st iPhone 5 was defective ... now I have to wait ...

I would be happy to test out the iPhone 5 version. How do I sign up?

We don't have all the iPhone/iPod combinations to test on, but it should work on any device that has iOS 4.3. Some of the lower end devices might have issues, but I hope not. It works on all the current iPhone/iPod and the previous iPhone 4/4s. It is iPhone5 optimized. I'll be posting some screenshots on https://twitter.com/SpacewardHo later on in the week.

If you end up getting it, and have some device that doesn't work. Contact us and we will work with you to get it to work if it is possible.

iPhone5 screenshot

Here is a screenshot of the iPhone5 version. Full support for the wide screen for those larger galaxies. If you have an iPhone5 or the 4" iPod, the extra space is awesome! We will announce when the update goes live.
