Shifts: A survival strategy game in space 1.99 >> Free


WHAT IS SHIFTS?
Shifts is a turn-based strategy game set in a desolate universe. You play the Captain of a ship fleeing a dying Earth. Lost in space with the last five humans in the entire universe, itís up to you to guide them through the stars. Find habitable planets and colonize them with creation engines before your nanovirus-infected Arkship self-destructs. With strategy and luck you'll find a new home for humanity.

MAN-UP, WISE-UP TACTICS
Chances are, space will get you killed. Make smart tactical decisions and you just might save the human race. Play recklessly and humanity dies with you.



RESOURCE MANAGEMENT CRAZINESS
Your ship's artificial intelligence just might go insane. The thruster reactors leak and the hull is cracking from the stress of intergalactic flight. Your robots need constant maintenance, and pesky nanobots are trying to corrupt the creation engines and break the ship apart. Manage your resources carefully or there's no tomorrow.



SYMBIOTIC CREW = SUPER POWERS
Every member of your crew has been engineered to give the arkship a special power. Activate those powers by connecting crew to the ship's artificial intelligence (interfacing).



YOU'RE ON SHIFT!
Assign non-interfaced crew to shifts. Every crew member is armed with a different speciality to deal with the arkship's growing list of problems. Decide who's on shift and when to keep the arkship from falling apart. But be warned, your symbiotic crew members will grow fatigued if you keep them from interfacing with the artificial intelligence for too long.

RANDOM MAP GOODNESS
Look, space is a very big place. There's no reason to play (or die) in the same place twice.

Yes you can, I actually done it myself before ever getting an ipad and when I had one, I found that I have downloaded some free games that were for ipad or were universal and I have forgotten about all these. :-)
