If you’re like me, you probably have lost countless hours on Kairosoft’s Game Dev Story and Hot Springs Story. I have been loving every minute of these iOS simulation games. War Balloon Games has upped the ante by announcing their own take on the simulation genre but with a science fiction twist called Star Command. AWESOME!
Star Command is scheduled to be released this summer and i cannot wait! If Star Command is anything like Kairosoft’s offerings then I need to find time to play this game especially once my busy schedule kicks in. Good problem. =)
Here’s are some of the game’s details which got me reaalllly excited for Star Command:
Players can build their vessel in their own image – if you prefer a scientific, peace oriented game style you can build long rang scanners and diplomatic facilities to encourage peace and information exchange. Players more focused on settling disputes through force can build their Starship with multiple weapon bays and reinforced hull to absorb heavy damage.
Throughout the game players can hire and manage their crew. Crew members have a variety of skill sets and each of these comes into play when performing tasks on board like research, tactical, engineering and more. Crew members gain new skills as the game progresses making them more and more valuable.
Players can explore the universe, discovering black holes, nebula’s, new planets and eventually make contact with new races. Diplomacy comes into play as some species are naturally drawn to combat while others may be more willing to join you – even exchanging officers on your crew.
