Picked this up out of pure curiosity and it's not too bad. it's your basic space trader type game. You pick up cargo on one planet and then try to sell it for a higher price on another planet. Or you can except missions and try to carry them out for more money.

There isn't a lot of animation with the game, but that's never really been the point with games like this. The art work is nice and holds your interest and the music and other sound effects are above average as well.

Once you get your cargo and missions it's time to take off for your destination. I liked that if you picked something that was out of your range you had to stop at another planet before heading to the other one. Along the way you'll run into several ships. You have the opportunity to engage them or just leave them alone (if they aren't pirates that is, in which case your forced to engage). Some ships are cargo ships just like you, some are in distress and need help, and others are bad guys who want your cargo. Even some of the distressed ships are pirates lying in wait.

For battle you have to decide what actions you want to do. Often times you need to maneuver your ship in the right line of attack before you can fire. Battles are tough to win in the game at first because your weapons are limited. Getting them leveled up is key to long term survival in the game. Otherwise you're spending a lot of time just trying to out run everything.

You can also upgrade your AI (the woman you see in the pictures). As she gets better it's not just her looks that improve. You also get a better pilot and repair person.

I haven't spent a lot of time playing games like this in the past but I was pretty happy with the time I've spent with this game so far and I will be looking to get better at it soon.

This is really something that is up to you whether or not you'll like it. If you like this genre of game I'd have to say that it's pretty good, but not playing much of the others out there I can't really compare it. If you're looking for a shoot 'em up game, this really isn't for you.

I can only say that I didn't experience any sort of upgrade in that department...

Even if there is, do you really want to buy an app to look at plastic looking women that evidently, from the screen shots, all have artificially enhanced breasts? You can look up much better nude images in Safari for free.

Yeah but then I wonder why so many plastic women with big breast in the game? Go figure.

Otherwise I was both, joking and pinpointing.
