App description: Hades' Star is a unique space strategy game, where thousands of players participate in one shared universe.

STORY

The first Scout ships we sent into the newly discovered Hades Galaxy confirmed what our greediest Corporations were hoping for: A new world filled with rich star systems and rare resources. Subsequent reports of hostile environments, unstable stars, and a mysterious indigenous race were quickly dismissed. Massive Colonization missions were put in place in record time. Already, thousands of fleets have arrived to the new Galaxy and set outposts on various planets. New ones arrive daily.

As the owner of a humble fleet arriving at the outskirts of the Hades Galaxy, you will work to colonize planets, collect valuable resources, build space stations, grow your economy and solidify your presence in dangerous star systems. You will create ships to expand and protect your interests against the aggressive race guarding this galaxy. You will have the option to join your efforts with other players to form Corporations. With time, you'll come to grow your influence in the political landscape formed by thousands of other human players.

FEATURES

Explore your own, vast star system and face the mysterious Cerberus forces
Colonize numerous planets and watch them grow from lifeless rocks to central hubs of activity
Establish diplomatic relations with other players and dictate your terms for military, mining and trade cooperation
Build combat, mining and trade ships and customize them with powerful modules
Meet other players and complete time-limited objectives near Red Stars that are going Supernova
Organize with other players in Corporations
Play at your own pace: No one will unfairly steal your resources while you are offline

From the developers' website:

Is Hades’ Star for me?

You should definitely try Hades’ Star if:

You like space strategy games but feel like PC games have too high continuous time requirements and/or interface complexity.

You want to feel like you are always in control of an ever-growing space empire, including when you are not actively playing.

You love playing with, chatting, and helping other people. The game is specifically designed around social interactions, generally encouraging cooperation, but there may still be interesting internal politics in Corporations for gaining power.

Hades’ Star is probably not for you if:

You are looking for an immersive experience that you can play for hours without interruption. There is no concept of “starting a new game”, instead each short session contributes to your overall progress over the next days, weeks and months. The game has been designed primarily for players with pockets of free time, who still want to feel like they are progressing in the long run, without having to start a new game each time they find some time to play.

You want a single player game. While Hades’ Star doesn’t require or force interaction with other players, it’s still likely your experience will be affected by other player’s actions.

What is the goal of the game?

The goal is to expand your empire by colonizing multiple planets, building and upgrading fleets and space stations, and doing missions that help you gain technology and influence. You will upgrade your planets and fleets using natural resources you find and compete for in various stars. There are multiple secondary goals players may want to engage in, such as climbing the leaderboards or completing various trade, mining or combat achievements. Future updates will add further goals and progress the story of the Hades Galaxy.

I have been beta testing for a while and can confirm it's interesting to play in short bursts, and becomes involving over time. Can be played solo but then it's a lonely experience. A big plus is that other players can't steal resources, unless that has been changed but hopefully not.

Thanks, Stronsay!
Sounds interesting enough that I'll give it a shot sometime this week. Especially if the part about playing in bursts is correct. As much as I'd like to play something like e.g. EVE Online, I don't have the time anymore to play hours on end. So this here might just be the right thing.

It's exactly like mentioned. To make transports short burst is ideal. And the max time you need to stay ingame if you don't have time is around 15min for red stars. All the rest you can do in short bursts and still be good at the game. It's really well tailored for mobile. It's awesome

Is there any way to start over? After playing the tutorial I'd like to do things differently but I can't unlink from Game Center.

Where do I need to take resources once I've listed them into my transport ship? To my home planet?

To the planet they need to be delivered to. It tells you next to the cargo.
