I nearly screamed when I saw this on the Out Now post on TA. I'm all tingly inside!

This is a phenomenal release week!

So this is pretty incredible so far. I really wish this was a third person view and not first person but I still love it. The interaction with aliens is pretty great. Just love the style here!

I'm so glad this is out, though it landed a lot sooner than I expected so I couldn't get as much played/impressions given as I'd have liked.

The main thing with this is the care and attention - the way all the alien races are unique with their own dispositions and animated emotions. It's a small team game but it really feels like something 2K etc. could put out. The dev has loads of ideas on how to expand it further if it does well too. Real good, old-school space exploration/combat/trading sim with great combat and seamless loading times. The visual style is really effective and memorable which is great for a genre that's generally bland.

I love this game and it's clearly made by someone who loved it as well. Can't wait to buy this and settle down to a whole weekend with it!

Honestly, that was nothing - I could and should say so much more about it but unfortunately I've not had as much free time recently as I'd like. I will be playing the heck out of it soon though so should be able to make up for it!

Well worth the price tag on this one though. There's almost nothing like it on iOS really, especially not with this level of professionalism.
