Description

++++

“Per aspera ad astra”. That’s what the contract read, and it was the truest lie you ever signed your name to.

Hoping to make your fortune through interstellar trade and adventure, you became a free agent of the Hansa Star Guild in exchange for a small starship and some big debts. Now you must master the tradeways of frontier space and make a name for yourself at any cost...

++++

Rogueship is a space trading simulation set in a sci-fi universe where you play an upstart starship captain running galactic commodities between planets, fighting pirates, alien hostiles, and staying one step ahead of guild regulators. Invest in ship upgrades, risk everything by smuggling precious contraband, buy low, sell high, and struggle to survive in the chaotic age of space.

GAMEPLAY OVERVIEW:

+ Single-player, turn-based 2D interface

+ Randomly generated maps and encounters

+ Simple, addictive trade management

+ Balanced risk- and planning-based gameplay

+ 10-15 minute long games

+ 9 planets, 9 commodities, and 16 encounter types

+ Online leaderboard

Rogueship is the perfect coffee-break game, combining core strategy with a simple interface and evocative futuristic universe. Easy to pickup and play, the game is designed for short bursts of devious starfaring where you live or die based on your ability to manage calculated risk. It’s a throwback to a time where games were played at a higher level of abstraction, where strategy was more important than tactics.

Randomly generated galaxy maps, randomized encounters, and the erratic pulse of the commodities market make every game of Rogueship a fresh challenge. Highly replayable and capricious, you will experience the rush of victory or the grasping pain of death in the Rogueship universe as a new story each time you play.

Unlike sprawling space epics that try to do a little of everything, Rogueship concentrates on the struggle of interstellar commodities trading. This makes Rogueship ideal for anyone seeking a short, replayable strategy sim. With a simple interface that’s natural to the iPhone, you’ll exploit planetary needs while timing your trades to the fluctuating galactic market, and stay ahead of game events bringing unexpected downturns and windfalls.

For the criminally enterprising, the black market offers contraband trading and tempting rewards to smugglers in it for either a quick profit or a prosperous career. The crushing arm of the law, however, waits to strike in the form of Guild Regulators, relentless enforcers working for the galactic trade cartels.

Yet many other dangers await the rising star-trader. Space pirates ply the tradeways seeking rich cargo loads to pillage, but if you defeat them in battle you can claim a bounty from the guilds. Intruders are alien life forms lurking in the uncharted reaches of space. They feed on Astra and will attack passing spacecraft, but if you can defeat them you’ll find valuable xenotech to sell.

5/5 stars

Serious strategy game!

:
Now this is my kinda game - there's a lot to sink your teeth into here.

Definately not a game for everybody - lookat the polarized reviews - it's either a game you will love, or one that you won't care for.
