User Comments:
- "The devs did an awesome job building a player-centric world instead of one which merely serves to siphon cash from your wallets. Highly recommended."
- "This game is in it's own league of it's genre and it has the support of the devs."
- "Unique gameplay. Possibly enough to remove itself from the genre..."
- "... a wonderful, solid game."
- "There really isn't any game quite like it in the app store..."
- "The community is great, and it's still really young. It reeeeeally tests the strategic side of my brain. And I love that."
- "Is anyone elses partner starting dislike RVO? Mine says she was worried I might be having an affair to start with, because I'm always checking my phone!"
- "I came in after randomly looking at RPG games based off of release date just to see if anything cool came out. I haven't needed to pay for an iPhone game app since, so I'd say the $3 price is a HUGE value."
- "Great update. The improvements to speed and stability are impressive, and I already considered this app fast beforehand."
- "I like that RVO consumed my life the last three days while I was strategizing how to try and keep [Kinrat Beta V]. That is why I love it. That battle was intense. I also love the community here. Our team was really into it also and I think that is why we held the planet for so long."
- "Never before has an iOS game sucked me in like this. I just realized I've been playing for six weeks, and I'm playing more frequently now than I did in the beginning. RVO definitely passes my litmus test of a great game, which is why I'm giving it 5-stars."
- "...I can't put it down. I absolutely love this game. This game is only getting better and better and I look forward to a long tenure in this game."

This is nice casual space MMO. There are no subscriptions or IAPs.
