The Story:
The Fifo, a people of space nomads, had to make a stop in the normal space unintentionally. As they were leaving the meta space, a very destructive asteroid storm destroyed their ark ship.

The meager remains of the formerly proud nomadic people was forced to settle on the planet Kamolon. The Fifo want nothing more than to get back to their old life and return to the peace of the meta-space. But they need to find all the parts for a new ark ship. Can you help the Fifo people to find the parts of the ark ship? Only then they can return to their eternal journey through the meta-space.

Should the raw materials of the discovered planet not be sufficient for you, scan the space for asteroids and extract additional raw materials there.

Dudes, grab this while it is free. Or better yet, don't, and buy it afterwards! This is one of the finest strategic experiences for the iOS platform!

Only so far as Civilization can be summarized as building towns and defeating opponents.

Alien Tribe 2 is a very slow RTS/4X hybrid. You control units and build like a regular RTS (Starcraft, or better yet, Homeworld), but you most of the the trappings of the 4X genre: advancements in tech, large-scale expansion and colonization with many bases and settlements, mine for resources, move resources around, built multiple armies, the whole eXplore, eXpand, eXploit, and eXterminate routine.

There are elements of tower defense to static defense placement (turrets in space), but this in in ADDITION to regular (albeit slow) RTS combat with manually controlled troops.

This isn't how I found the game. I didn't compete against other civilizations, I just had some enemies appear every set amount of time, who were stronger with each attack. There was no way to beat that enemy as I don't think they have a homeworld, they just appear out of nowhere, each time stronger. So you're basically just hunting for ark pieces until your time is up - when you're overwhelmed by these enemies.

I felt like there could be a great game here if it was like civ in that you are competing for galactic dominance with actual opponents but that isn't it.

Btw I might be missing something as I didn't play this too much, but this is the structure of the game I found.

Alien Tribe 2 has much more than just hunting for the ark pieces. You have to build a defense, you have to explore other solar systems, you have the 40 missions, you have to find the ark ship parts, you have civilize other planets, you have mine raw materials, you have to do research, you have to do build resource networks and much much more. With version 2.0 you also have to produce the fuel for the ark ship. We have a lot of players who play a single Alien Tribe 2 game much longer than we expected (10 hours+).

By the way, we have Alien Tribe 2 reduced to $1.99 for next days.

the v2 of ALIENT TRIBE 2 is now out for a while and some of you play the game since December 2013 or even know the first part of ALIEN TRIBE.
What do you think gets worse in the game? Are there issues where you think we made the wrong decisions?

Please tell us what you think.

For me there is nothing to complain. It is one of the best 4X RTS game for me on the App Store and I can recommend it to everybody who is looking for a real-time strategy game. It has no in-app purchases and it is worth every penny. But if I have free wishes:

- A diplomatic layer
- Minimizing micro-management by building a complete defense lines
- Attacking an enemy
- More missions

Please don't get me wrong - Alien Tribe 2 is fantastic. I would love to see a successor. Do you have any plans to release Alien Tribe Part 3?
