Any impressions on this? It's in new games we love on the App Store.

I've been playing this since yesterday and am LOVING it. There are no stamina timers, nothing to lock you out. Probably the best way I can describe it is Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes meets FTL. You have the hero aspect from Galaxy of Heroes, and you have gear and such on them you can upgrade, but then you progress through bounties in a very FTL fashion, charting out your course on a space map until you find your quarry, apprehend them, and reap the rewards. You can do this multiple times and as you get more efficient you can retain more supplies and get further along the campaign but ultimately you always run out of supplies and have to start over on a fresh campaign, which is randomized every time (again, in very FTL fashion). I am so impressed by the art direction in this game, as well. Really unique style, very colorful and endearing. I've put in probably 20+ hours into it since yesterday and am not bored with it yet in the slightest. I highly recommend it.

I had to try this game based on your praise and you are absolutely right. I am a big fan of FTL and played a bit of Galaxy of Heroes. Bounty Stars combines both really well and will probably hold my attention a lot longer than Galaxy of Heroes. The ship battles, which remind me a tiny bit of Plundernauts, are also very fun. I also like the out of combat moments where the game uses your crews personality skills to determine success or failure. Collecting the intel and narrowing down the search is a very cool feature that scratches that board game detective itch. I have only played for a little bit but so far its been well worth the download.

Glad you're liking it! The whole space exploration aspect is a breath of fresh air for games like these. I'm also very impressed by how free and easy they are with the in-game currency. I haven't felt the slightest bit pressured to buy any. For one thing, the fact that there's no stamina and no stop-gap to make me either pay up or wait until some dratted timer runs down is a great departure from a lot of DeNA's past titles. But they throw it at you for levels gained, bounties finished, quests, daily login rewards ... I've opened up over 10 heros in the last 24 hours and all of them have been freely earned. I hope more people get stuck into this because I think it's a game with some serious legs on it.

Forgive the short feedback but this game is really good. It has tinges of final fantasy and star ocean without all the timers and stamina issues from other games.

I am really glad I gave this a shot. The game play is a lot of fun but I am completely in love with the games art. Its evident to me there was a lot of time put into the "environment".
