I just bought another $50 gift card from walmart.com (for $40), so I guess I'm buying this. Done. I'm looking forward to trying this out tonight! Hopefully I remember well enough how to play. It has been years. I did read a bit of the guide on the web, so hopefully that's enough to get started.

We can look at it, we weren't sure whether people really wanted to name it, or since we are adding game center support whether they would just use their Game Center name.

Coming in a much later update as we are working on GameCenter support, the iPhone version. It is definitely on our list to make sure to do.

We are working on it. To do the iPhone version requires very different screens than the iPad version, and we love playing the game on the big screen so we did it first. We will make it universal so you don't have to buy it again.

Check to see if you have the "Turn auto play off when something interesting happens" Since you probably discovered some new technology, or a new planet, or a battle or something. If you turn it off and turn down the speed, you can just have it play an entire game for you. Actually quite fun to watch.

Yes, we will probably do a "different tile set" where you can choose which graphic set you want, since there are some people who really love the original graphics.

Excellent. We wrote the Palm version too, and yes, we are working on the iPhone version right now. Just will take us a bit longer. The game will be universal when it comes out.

Which features are you waiting for? And yes, we are actively working on updates and will continue to update it based on the feedback we get (in forums like these).

Hi,
thanks for your answers. I know your old Palm Version. It was great and really very playable ... even on my slow Tungston with 33 MHz ...

Missings features:

1. As I wrote, the history graph ... it is just for information, ok, but nevertheless.

2. More important: The player compare graph: I used it very often because you can overthink and adjust your own tactics if you can see where you are in front and in which technology you are behind the other players.

3. It is nice to give yourself a custom name ... I did that with several names and after a few games the AI players took themself also these names ...

I am really looking forward to the next updates ... I love this game since version 2.05 for Windows 95 ...

Best Regards,
Mythbuster

Are you talking about # of games played, # won/lost? Or something else? You do get "Master Points" as you win games, and we keep track of that. Though we are adding in some more record keeping when we finish the GameCenter support.

If you have other things you are thinking of with player stats, let me know and we will see what we can work in.
