In the late 23rd century humans have populated most of Earth. Troubled by the poor quality of life and the excessive amount of damage inflicted on Earth, they decide to plant new colonies on distant planets. The Earth military (EDF or Earth Defense Fleet) is in charge of organizing and carrying out this immense project. During the colonization, the EDF encounters a new life form, which turns out to be extremely hostile. Multiple attacks on EDF key installations, as well as on a research ship, force the EDF to improvise new strategies for a full evacuation. You are a high ranking officer of the EDF, who is in the midst of all the action. Make sure you all get back home to Earth safe & sound.

I'm surprised, the graphics look very intense. I'd be worried for lagging issues with the iPhone.

Honestly, I've been scouring the AppStore for a space RTS and couldn't find one that looked wholy appealing. Then I remembered getting this when it was free awhile ago so I reinstalled it and its great! The dev is developing a sequel and additional content as I'm typing this.

It's a deep, complex (but not overtly) game that I think is definitely worth the price, and it should scratch that 'epic space battle' itch. Capital ships are big and slow, giving them a real weighty feel... Though they're in space, if that makes any sense.

Also, I like that you can assign wingmen, i.e., having smaller, faster ships locked into a covering position around capital ships, so they follow as the larger one moves. I think each ship has eight or so positions around it on which wingmen can be attached.

Great game. Can't wait for more.
