Any good space Sims?

Just wondering if theres any good space sims for the Iphone. I loved games like FreeSpace and Freelancer and just want something like that.

This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

Try appolo or space shuttle by Laninar research.
I don't know if they are any good- not a bad price and I've got one of their x-plane series which is fairly good and has regular massive updates.

If something online is free, you are not the customer - you are the product.

If I understand what you mean, and you like Online games, I recommend Outer Empires. Greatest MMO on the iPod, in my opinion. The Void is great too, but it's offline. Good for portable Space Sci-Fi gaming though.

Spacetrader: moon madness is REALLY good and has some of the best graphics and controls for a 3d first person game

The game on the front page looks good.

If you're looking for a space dogfighting sim, check out "StarPagga". There is a lite version that includes five missions.
