First price drop ever. A great alternative to No Man's Sky for iOS.

Thanks for the heads up...

I've been playing all morning, and am really enjoying it...

I started a couple games (played for about 5 minutes then started over, played another 5 minutes) before reading the guide so I could have a better idea of what it was talking about. But after that initial session, the game has clicked and I'm doing contracts and buying/selling goods... Extracting minerals, ect...

I'm already surprised at how big it is compared to the file size, and I know I've not even seen a fraction of what's here yet.

I'm excited and optimistic about moving forward and getting into combat and whatever else this massive beast has to offer. =oD

You should pay a visit to the main game thread here:

http://forums.toucharcade.com/showthread.php?p=3909541

There are many tips there for newbies, and the dev is very active in the forum thread, improving the game based on the players' feedback.

No Mans Sky - Fancy Graphics - walking on planets - crafting - $57 + trading + economy + a lot more to do + a steady stream of game updates/additions = Stellar Horizon.

Wait... is there any combat?

My screen name is misunderstood. I am not some arrogant person who thinks he's so cool. Cool, because I like cold weather and Pepper because I'm hot.

Yes there is, in space against the rebels, the imperials or the outlaws. You can also destroy transport ships an grab their cargo... But imperials will attack you if you do so

I know it doesn't have good graphics, but there is something called aesthetics. I mean, it could be the developer's first game, but one thing to have in mind is to keep the UI clean, simple and user-friendly. This looks like things just slapped together with no rhyme or reason.
