It only has half a gig of memory, so I'm not sure.

I love, love, love space sims. However I've heard a few things regarding this game that puts me into a holding pattern for right now. I'm going to wait until some early adopters provide comments or a review or two pours in. I'm hoping for the best.

So I gave in and bought it to see if it would work on my touch and to anyone who has one and is wondering if it works - don't buy it! It just crashes after a few minutes each time. That being said though it looks great judging by the videos I seen!

Just a quick note if you thinking of buying it for your phone don't. As you won't able to see some of the icons on star map even on my iPad Air 2 they are Very tiny.

I got this on my PCs and it looks like a straight port from PC. There mentions of using your mouse to clear a windows that maybe open.

The graphics wise they are not as sharp as they are on PCs so I'm left to think they not using the retina or metal but could be wrong.

One thing on iOS it's 4.99 on PCs its 10.99

I post more as i play that keep Eli happy in reference to the amount of videos being posted.

Yup! No retina, low framerate, crashes... On an iPad Air 2 nonetheless!
This port needs to be patched ASAP. Such a shame, I was really looking forward to it...

I picked it up for my 6+ anyways. Glad to see all the feedback already though. I'm guessing it will receive a patch fairly quickly as this is the crutch/make or break moment. And this game is far too original not to get the love, sales and shining reviews it deserves.
