Star Traders RPG

Category: 

Description of App: 

Command your officers and crew from the bridge of your star ship to travel, trade, and battle across the immense Star Traders Quadrant. Employ a wide variety of strategies as an Assassin, Bounty Hunter, Trader, Pirate or Smuggler. Can you manage your resources, crew and officers well enough to turn a profit in the complex economy that’s sprawling across the on-going interstellar conflict? This epic space pirate RPG offers a deep and challenging world and economy to Star Trading captains. You must navigate the waters of Quadrant politics and chose sides among the constantly conflicting Factions, or take the risk to stay independent. Enjoy endless replay value in this deep space civ and trading simulation which allows you to take any path you want as a captain. Act as a pirate against the merchants using the great shipping lanes, join the Solar War as a military captain, or hunt targets across the Quadrant as a fearsome bounty hunter! Star Traders is a turn-based strategy role playing game (RPG) inspired by games such as Trade Wars, Space Trader, Master of Orion, Pirates! and many other classic computer RPGs. If you enjoy retro games, adventure and tactics games, Action RPG or Sci-fi RPG with complex depth (such as Master of Orion or Mass Effect) you may enjoy Star Traders space trading simulation. A single, permanent $2.99 IAP grants you the Elite experience. Elite includes more than 200 new planets, more than 2,000 new sectors in the massive galaxy, over 200 new ships, twice as many rumors and officers, and more unique art! Our development team is actively continuing development and updates based on your feedback and is regularly updated with new content, features, and fixes.

  • Explore more than 300 planets
  • Trade in and manipulate the complex and deep economy in this economic simulator

  • Fully customize your captain (picking from 6 classes), officers and space ships

Experience the Elite upgrade: the epic new content includes 2,000 new sectors, 200 additional planets, and hundreds of additional ships, more rumors, art board, and officers. Your command of the ship is under constant threat, both internal and external. Can you manage your resources, crew, officers well to enough to turn a profit on your contracts and trades? Those that do will be among the Faction&;s elite Star Heroes -- and those that fail will be branded bandits and Crimelords. Star Traders is on Facebook: Development Blog: the Community Forum:

Only few buttons are not labeled,and they are easy to figure out by tapping on them. the only places those unlabled buttons pop up are in the main menu,when the app wants to notify you of some messege, tutorial wornings and such are a few that come to mind. the rest is farely smooth going.

Other Comments: 

Note: since the latest update the comment about traveling no longer applies. you can travel to different planets through the nav point feature and to specific deep space points if needed through contracts as the nav points for contracts is automaticly set. Feel free to edit this if you have tryed the game fully,I can't right now hence its a bit shoddy

This game is 99% playable,the only places it snags in turms of accessibility is the traveling,most of which can be done with the help of the auto pilot,when you are on a contract,for example. the planets are in sectors,and voiceover doesn't really detect those,hence the problem using the sectors to travel.the rest of the app though,besides a few unlabled button which don't hinder the gameplay at all,as there aren't any unlabled ones you would encounter during gameplay,is farely awesome to play with. Now only if the map were made usable with voiceover,it'd be fully accessible. or at least,playable.
This game is also available for android.
