Meh. Save your money. The "game" is pretty pointless. I put game in quotations because you really don't do much of anything, so it's not really a game IMO. The English is poor. Not as horrible as I've seen, but it's bad enough that it's pretty difficult to figure out exactly what you're doing. I guess you're supposed to acquire missions at the various planets (called Locations in the game) and then you earn the rewards when the mission is complete. When you enter a location, you're taken to this first person perspective of your ship, complete with a HUD filled with pointless meters and buttons. I haven't found any way to actually control your ship. When you enter battle, a countdown timer starts and various things happen on the screen. I'm not exactly sure what is going on, but you fire at a ship, then the police come, then you win....or lose. I really don't know the difference. There's a menu that you can use to upgrade your ship and hire new crew members (members named Anakin, Chewbacca, Spock, James Kirk, and Solo Han...yes, Solo Han).

I won all of my early battles. I have no idea how. I just did. So, I decided that if I upgrade my ship, I'd win even easier. Nope. I spent all of my money on upgrades and new crew members...and then promptly lost my next couple of battles, losing all of my remaining money in the process, but I still have Spock on my crew!

Truthfully, the game is so pointless that I really can't stand to put more than 5 minutes into it to figure out what it is I'm supposed to do. Deleted. If somebody has more patience than I do, then more power to you, but I suggest you spend the $0.99 (or $2.99...which is crazy for a game like this) on one of the 500,000 other $1 games on the App Store. Or, just burn the dollar for warmth. You'll get more out of it.

It's a damn shame. Most of the games which, judging by descriptions and screenshots, seem to suit me best are also the lousiest.
