App description: 2525 AD. Man is an interplanetary species, fueled by the discovery of 3 powerful new elements: Raon, Nugen and Sectium. Collectively called the Cosments, these resources were shared between the two dominant hegemonies, the Alliance of Neos and the Federation of Terra. But an already strained peace explodes from the devastating arrival of a mysterious Alien fleet. Humanitys confidence is shaken to its core, and war is now unleashed across the galaxies.

As a powerful commander, both Neos and Terra call upon your aid. Colonize planets, recruit skilled heroes, and develop warships to lead in battle against a multitude of enemy Commanders. Along the way, you will raid alien fleets and capture their technology, discover TRONs and EXTERs, and form crucial alliances.

The universe of AstroNest awaits. Which side will you choose?

Lead mankind to the brave new frontier… Space! Become a hero in Cosmic Warfare and use strategy and tactics to conquer planets and build the greatest empire known to man. Legions of Galactic Battleships await your command!

Welcome to Astronest, where you and you alone will determine the fate of humanity, as it struggles to restore planets, gather resources, and find a new home. But even as humanity faces its greatest challenge ever, it has been divided. Two factions, The Federation of Terra and the Alliance of Neos are locked in a seemingly endless conflict.

You will choose your side—will you fight for the Federation of Terra and the unification of all human kind, or for the Alliance of Neos and ultimate freedom from the Federation? Whichever you choose, you will need to manage your resources wisely as you build a spacefaring warfleet the likes of which has never been seen.

Heroes wander the galaxy, their loyalties torn asunder by the devastation of planet Earth, seeking strong leadership where their skills can shine. Hire them to manage your colonies, captain your fleets, and conquer planets as you fend off encroaching enemies.

Astronest is the ultimate space strategy game, allowing players to mix and match from a wide variety of battleships, weapons, and tech devices to build an unstoppable fleet. Each player must develop their own personal strategy to maintain dominance in their corner of the galaxy as they raise new buildings, collect new resources, and expand their fleet so that they can expand their borders.

Are you prepared to enter the ultimate battle for the survival of humanity? Are you the commander that will end the conflict and create an empire?

Are you ready to determine the destiny of mankind?

Your fleet awaits you.

The trailer looked impressive. Gameplay, looks like a shell of the trailer. Oh well. My excitement is tempered. I have no great hopes. Another game that is fake, compared to its trailer.

That's cause the trailer is cgi, not gameplay. It's been around for a while now.

Looks like this isn't getting any attention. Gave it a go. If there was an award for a gorgeous Looking/sounding GUI, astronest would win top honors. With that being said, the polished interface is an overlay to what is ultimately the typical Facebook currency driven "age of blah blah" hamster wheel experience. Initially, your first several hundred clicks/touches will be under the guidance of a never ending tutorial, which walks you through every function of the interface. I would imagine most lose interest during this process, because you literally spend about 20 min following the scripted interaction. When you are finally free of guided play, it's not long before the dicfficulty curve ramps up and you begin to feel the familiar pinch of currency/timer driven play. If that's your thing, then this looks like one of the most attractive, visually, I've seen. For me, I don't like the the hamster wheel experience, but I might like this one where the battles more cinematic, and more evident of the technology upgrades I've made. Instead, it's a matter of who's got the highest battle rating ( ala quantity*quality)vof the opposing fleets, presented as a few ship and laser sprites. If the dev put half as much effort into the battle sequence as they did in the gorgeous ui this might be a winner. Outside of that, few grammar errors aside, it's not bad and might even scratch your 4x itch, if you have one.

Loathe developers like this, link it to gamecenter or give us an option.
