Please help me find

Hello,

I'm after a particular type of game for my ipad2.

I'm looking for a space exploration-sim-strategy game that takes a long time to play.

I bought Galaxy on Fire 2 HD but thats too action based for my liking
I bought Starbase Orion but thats too boring and dull
I bought Weird Worlds, thats good but the games only last 5-10 mins max.

Can someone please suggest a good space game that lasts a nice long time?

(ideally I'm looking for sort of something like a mixture of ELITE (space trading & combat) and EOS (Earth Orbit Stations - space sim and exploration)

Please help! Price doesn't matter.

Thanks for that.

Looking at it now, it looks a little action oriented like GoF, but I'll read some reviews. thanks again for the suggestion!

Not exactly what you requested, but I'd recommend mooncraft if you enjoyed minecraft. It's a pretty decent minecraft clone, set in space.
I've heard people put many hundreds of hours into it.
also kairosofts game, astro story. You can never go wrong with a kairosoft title. I've had many hours gameplay out of each kairo game in my collection, which is alot for me. My gameplay attention spam usually gives me an hour max with a game, but I can stomach more of kairo.. Must have played atleast 5 hours on just cafe Nippon alone.

Currently addicted to: Duet game, Threes, Tengami, Oquonie, Platforms Unlimited, Perloo, Wave Wave

Ok thanks, so they did the same thing Fishlabs did with galaxy on fire 2. Makes sense.
