Downloaded because I like science and SF stuff, and terraforming a planet sounds even more interesting when it's "rooted in real science".
Stopped playing in the tutorial after a minute, because the font used is way too tiny (4pt or so).
Will write to the dev when I have time.

This has broad scope for a colony builder. As well as the usual planning for research and construction there are political and cultural considerations: Type of government, economy, eco-policy, and values. Additionally there are frequent unexpected events occuring in all these areas. Will be interesting to see how it develops over time. It's a mystery why such a small font was chosen.

Reading previous reviews, I was surprised that when I opened the app on my 6+ the font was readable for me - though I did recently get reading glasses, so that might be helping. ;-)
