I have Space Trader, but not Uniwar. You're talking Apples and Oranges.

I have a lot of fun with Space Trader, the problem is that it's a casual game masquerading as something deeper. The Quake engine takes awhile to walk around and get immersed, but is nothing more than a gimmick in what could be "inside trader"-like text game.

Anyway, I do recommend it, but people seem to have a lot of replay and deeper fun with Uniwar, which is then the better purchase. I just got Uniwar, so I'll try it out.

I don't like the controls in SpaceTrader very much. The two d-pads are somehow not working that good for me.
Also: You can only save in SpaceTrade if you travel to another planet...
Wheras in Uniwar you can quit the app and return where you left off.

Buy both. I love Space trader but it needs updating with more regions, a longer playtime and online scoreboards; although i have played through it at least 5 times in three days.
I have just bought Uni war and so far it looks great, graphics good and its been well polished, it seems straightforward but complex with a lot to do including online!!

Both are 59p ($0.99) each so get both.
If only one get Uniwar as it is better value (price will rise progressively to $7.99)

These games are completely different, though I only have UniWar. I haven't played the game much, but it's pretty cool.

Btw, UniWar is 2.99 now

Which Space Trader is everyone talking about? Space Trader: Moon Madness or Space Trader? They're two totally different games.
