Built in obsolescence
by Mikewalling on 2019/07/15 03:56
Amazing how quickly a vessel becomes less useful, and you need a new one. Update: I stand corrected .Of course the vessels become obsolete. If this was a real life experience, one would need to continue to modify the configuration of a ship in response to an adversary learning how to defeat it. With that in mind, this adds a level of realism. Cheers! Now may we have a certain class of Heavy Cruiser for those of us who love a Captain, a Doctor and a pointy eared, chill first officer. Update; After playing for a long time , once again I believe the game has an intentional
🚨 Scam Alert 🚨
by JV Stickman on 2019/07/14 22:12
It’s shameful and highly disappointing that apple allows this blatant money grab pay to win business model to circulate on there App Store. I’ve played around with it for about a month now I even threw about $30 at it. (I spend plenty of money on games [real games] for my console but once in a while I toss some green at these kinda of games? Simply as a reminder to prove it’s always a mistake. Even after spending $30 you continue to receive prompts to continue spending. One such prompt was for $199... lol in your dreams this app isn’t worth $30 I already wasted on it. And the game isn’t even a game really it’s a ship set up app. Set up your ship and hope the games algorithm lets you win once and a while. Not my idea of a game at all, sorry. I’ve been playing video games since they became a thing, I played PONG when it was new and it had more player control thirty years ago than Space Arena provides today. Just saying. I’m going to keep noodling around with this app thing (I can’t call it a game). How about we call it an “Animated wall paper with a ship setup menu” Yeah that works, at least it’s accurate and honest unlike the dev company that makes it. Don’t believe me? Contact them with an issue. “It might get fixed in one of the future updates” after claiming in the first email response that “it’s a known issue (googled it the issue existed for over a month before my inquiry) and will be fixed in the next update”. They didn't fix the issue. Can something so totally flawed be fix. Time will tell.
Great game!

Lots of fun building up credits to buy bigger ships, messing around with weapon configuration etc. Worth the time to try out.
Frustrating
by macricdmitriy on 2019/07/05 18:52
Great game. But then I got to level 12 and can’t play it anymore. I either have to wait to level 18 or wait a number of days till weekly battles are reset. What a nonsense.
Doesnt even load
by ike141 on 2019/07/03 16:47
I downloaded this game and have let it sit multiple times for upwards of half an hour and it wont load past the initial loading screen ive tried deleting and re downloading the game but it just wont work
Never received my in app purchase
by MobiusB117 on 2019/07/01 12:56
So recently I had some special offers that when attempting to claim would say claim before lvl xx. Well I never got my ships nor any upgraded parts. I recently contacted support and they said they are testing/working on a fix that would fix this issues. So then an offer popped up, a 1 time offer, which if you go off the screen will never come back. The offer was the $9.99 Therion battleship with 400 Celestium. After completing the transaction the game said to reload and after reloading I did not get the ship not the Celestium. My bank was charged and apple transaction history shows the transaction was made. I have yet to hear from them. Don’t get me wrong the game is fun but having issues prior was ok but dealing with issues with micro transaction now is shining a different kind of light that I am worried.
Uses some really dirty tactics
by Josawott on 2019/06/28 06:20
I had the game use some quickly switching pop ups to trick me into paying money for something I had no interest in buying. Cost me about 20 bucks, I’m pretty mad for obvious reasons.
I can’t play I downloaded it seeing the reviews but when I go in it will not let me play

Rip off, lazy company, addictive tho.
by mattsanti on 2019/06/21 09:50
Let’s start with addressing the issue of this game ripping off names or designs of other sci fi galaxys like, Star Wars, battlestar galagaca and Star Trek. There is a ship named the viper that looks like the viper in BSG, they have a ship fighter named the “wing” which looks like a x wing from Star Wars, also the “Destroyer Vega” which is a star destroyer. I can go on and on and on. That is petty and I hope they get copyrighted and get sued a lot. Also it’s hard to earn a lot of credits and the amount of credits you earn from winning battles does not increase much when you go up in level. Also I did spend real money on this game and a purchase went wrong where I did not get the item but I was charged for it in my bank account. Lastly I reached out to them on the issue and my email was not responded to. Basicly a big F you thanks for the money in my face. Waste of time and money this game is trash.
Time for a review
by Gay gay as 69 on 2019/06/19 11:45
This game is by far one of the best Strategy/mmo space games on mobile devices with no need to pay money, but that stated it still comes with some very annoying “issues”. The issue that annoys me most is how one sided “warp” drives are. Whoever teleports first will almost always lose the battle, specially if your opponent teleports behind you. The whole battle is based on who teleports first cause the second guy to teleport almost always gets put behind the enemy ship. You basically get stuck in a loop, teleport first behind ur opponent, but he teleports within seconds after putting him behind you instead, repeat that. That basically makes alot of battles luck/rng based unless your opponent has terrible ship design. My second issue with the game is how ships become obsolete after a few levels, besides vega and a few others which you can buy with money, you get offered at level 30 to buy vega for $13.00. Put is you can still earn vega for free, but it is still a very op ship that lasts for awhile. When you win games at level 28, my level, you gain about 30,000 - 40,000 exp per battle. But if you lose you get like 6000 - 8000. This makes losing basically worthless with no handicap. Guess thats the point though, dont lose. And in arena mode if you gain to many battle points at a low level you basically softcap yourself facing high levels. This basically makes you stuck in the game with no way to advance since you will always lose. So to improve the game i would change up warp drives. I also believe maybe making a new match-made activity where you face other ships of the same class and still gain exp but no credits. This allows those players who softcapped themselves to still level up and maybe redeem their account back.
Ads during gameplay
by triton-x on 2019/06/13 18:17
While fighting, ads sometime appear and you can't skip them.
Completely infringes on copyright
by Strider387 on 2019/06/13 00:58
There’s a Star Destroyer, X-Wing, and Millennium Falcon model in this game. Unless you guys have some sort of partnership with the legitimate owners (Disney), I doubt that this is legal.
Please help
by Dominator1003 on 2019/06/10 21:09
The game won’t even load, I’m sure it’s a great game but I can’t get past the herocraft loading screen. I have an iPhone XS
Galaxy Coordinates?
by CelestialTroy on 2019/06/06 15:04
Hey, I’ve been trying to find out how to get more of the Galaxy Coordinate things, but I’ve been having no luck so far. Are they super rare chance with a victory or are we supposed to be getting it with every victory? Even thou I’ve gotten about 30 or so victories since it has been unlocked, no new coordinates.
1 more thing
by Jgjffju on 2019/06/05 21:00
First of all great game but you should be able to rotate your weapons left right and straight.
Great fun game tactical spaceship game
by $$reaper$$ on 2019/06/05 08:32
Simple and complex. Can be expensive but when the ads work it’s a great free game then too. The ads are not showing up anymore.
RELEASE AN UPDATE 😡😡😡😡

THIS GAME NEEDS UPDATING/ UPDATES REALLY BAD!😡😡😡😡😡
Ships too powerful for their level
by Done law on 2019/06/01 23:37
I really hate it when I am on level four or five and I am against someone who is on one or two and I have a laser and a lot of cannons and they have a chain gun(I can tell)and the round starts. Then I have a shield and they have a slab of steel and I start fighting. He doesn’t take any damage at all and I literally blow up in five seconds. For any people playing if you die and get paired up to someone like that, be CAREFUL(unless of course you’re level thirty or something). I hope you fix it please and other than that I really like the game.👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
Awesome but a few things
by Aren22 on 2019/05/27 18:03
So I started playing and I was instantly hooked but I would love it if you give more sired it’s per battle because it’s hard to get ships and modules on around 7k in my level and I get that the bigger the ship the more credits you get but it’s especially hard to beat bigger ships since I’m a beginner.
Love the game, but.....
by timtomb1969 on 2019/05/27 06:05
It gives me lots of time between fights to play other games...I find that I’m slowly being being drawn to them...losing interest...it was fun for 5 minutes
Fun but too expensive
by MargotD39 on 2019/05/21 23:46
My son likes this game but is disappointed and frustrated by the high cost, both in terms of real currency and in game currency for ships.
Where’s ingot?
by ThAdEa82 on 2019/05/16 03:07
Game running again from apparent server crash. Class battle matchups need serious improvement.
What a epic game
by THAT SHADOW FIGHT PLAYER on 2019/05/15 19:36
This game is epic but I wish you could see fleet battles
It’s pretty good
by Plz add hard ode on 2019/05/10 01:26
This is a good game (although not the best) Most ships are direct upgrades to each other, making little variety. Some of the ships you can buy are stupidly powerful, usually better in every way.
i enjoy this game !
by Louie_111 on 2019/05/08 08:35
lots of fun trying to come up with amazing builds to clone to the top and become the best of the best. building a ship is half the fun and the other half is seeing your ship in action. I’m about to reach master league too ! i love all the ships and weapons in this game. +one thing i would really love to see be added to to the game is 2vs2 where we can play with a friend and simple earn money together (disabled ratings)
Doesn’t work
by Ghtyo on 2019/05/08 03:51
Would be cool to actually play it and find out if it is worth its salt. Endless start screen after about fifty refreshes I am deleting the game.
Why can’t I test out ship designs?
by Thetgggdgju on 2019/05/07 19:22
So this game is fun and all, but the fact that the only way to see if your ship design is good is to fight in the arena. If it’s lacking you’ll have to wait anywhere from 15-35 minutes to try out a new design. That wait time is what kills the game for me.
Just looking for a response from the developer
by Sapient owl on 2019/05/06 02:07
This is a fun and addicting game. I’d recommend anyone try it who’s looking for a good game to past the time. However, I’ve been trying to earn free celestium and every time incomplete a task that provides celestium I never receive it, even after it’s been verified and completed. Do you know why this is? This hasn’t deterred me from playing the game, just wanted to know why the free earnings aren’t working.
Thank you for totally screwing this game up
by Goonbros on 2019/05/04 16:37
Now its all about money I see well I really did like this game even invested 4.99$ but not rich so I can’t compete if you match me against these new Ships all the time so I never get to improve my weapons or shields or generators or anything else Making it more and more difficult for me to defend myself. Thanks again for screwing up this game.
Destroyer Vega still trashes the game
by The true spork on 2019/05/03 15:15
Played alot at the start, then ran into the DV. Managed another level or so but playing is an exercise in futility because of that ship. I keep checking back but there is just no way around it and the devs don't seem to care.
Very fun game...
by Flipmonger on 2019/05/03 03:34
...until it stops working. Spent a few weeks playing this game on breaks from work and life in general. Has kept my interest in progressing through the game, taking a bit longer than those paying for quicker and advanced perks; however, the free route makes it a bit more challenging. To my dismay, I loaded the game today only to be stuck on the Herocraft logo page while listening to the engaging intro loop for a good 10-minutes without any error message or loading time. Either a server is down or this game just simply crashed. Website doesn’t provide server status; therefore, I assume the game has simply crashed. Other games seem to continue to work fine, and power-cycling my iPhone did not remedy this issue. So, my review ends here... a very fun game... until it stops working.
Unexpected(?!?) errors
by explodingreactor on 2019/05/03 01:43
I am seeing tons of unexpected errors lately. I do not know how to solve them, but I ask you to help. Help? Ok: edit. I got it running, but virtually all my rating is gone. Reset to zero. This hasn’t happened before, as when I won, I every once in a while, I lost a rating. But this????? AGHHHHHHHHHHHH!!! I want my 496 or so rating back!!!! I also can’t seem to win credits or exp. 😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭 Another edit: Just 10 minutes after this text I finally got it fixed. But you may want to look into fixing that. I really don’t want that frustrating glitch to happen again
Development issues
by Jupiter806 on 2019/05/03 01:07
I initially contacted the development team about an unbalance in the arena system I wanted helped fixed with.. with the new combat update I’ve won 1/40 battles and I don’t enjoy impossible games to win; and although a solution was set in place between me and the developer I was emailing. I saw no results. Game was GREAT a year ago.
Latest update is a total win!
by KalanVryce on 2019/05/02 14:44
The game started out awesome but the addition of the VEGA just killed it. The new patch has made it playable again. You are actually going up against ships where there is a chance to win! Thank you so much for this update!!
Great game that needs changes
by rainplop on 2019/05/02 02:54
There are a few things that need to be done to make this game far, far more enjoyable, and challenging. Currently, the combat logic is so generic for all ships that it doesn’t really work for any of them very well. 1 Please implement a method to choose the ships behavior in combat. Simple choices related to tactics. This change would allow for many ship designs that would not be possible or would not be effective otherwise. For example, I may want my ship to close in on its opponents and stay close OR I may want to stay far away from my enemy OR I may want to fly past my enemy very fast without stoping. Very importantly, I may want to face my opponent, OR I may want to try to orbit him while never stopping. a. Allow us to choose a side, front, or the rear of our ship to try to keep towards our enemy. b. Allow us to choose a distance to try to maintain from our opponent. c. Allow us to choose how to respond to a ship warping close to us. Stay and fight OR run. Allow us to choose how to act when we warp to an enemy. Hit and run, OR try to stay close to the enemy. 2 Spacefaring races with incredibly sophisticated technology might at some point learn how to ROTATE things. Let us rotate items when placing them. Rotating a weapon would rotate its firing arc. Thanks
Fairly fun for a free game
by AdFortem on 2019/04/30 22:16
This game is great to play when you’ve got a few spare minutes. I love the fact you can keep attacking until your ship is destroyed. I also love that the purchasable currency is fairly easy to earn. Overall good game.
Edit: Things are much better
by waitingforbetterapp on 2019/04/30 16:42
Edit: I woke up this AM and noticed I was able to access the new content, and my ranking was less than 400. Nice move devs. +3 stars. I also saw I can’t use my fighter any longer to artificially reduce my ranking in order to complete dailies, so please ignore that advice below. This is a good game, now. They also restored the matchmaker to pre-patch performance, which was a very good move. I’ve adjusted all my ships to the higher difficulty and now have issues getting the one loss required for my dailies. So many improvements over the game we had yesterday. You’ll have no problems getting into the 400’s and higher with a decent cruiser now. Don’t expect to have access to the new content until you reach carriers at level 37 or higher. The devs raised the requirements to rank 500, and at that rank, you’ll face nothing but decently fit, fully upgraded battleships. Spend some money on credits, ships, and weapons if you want access within the first few months ($500-$600), or grind dailies for much longer. You’ll have to purposefully lose many of your matches to keep your rank artificially low if you don’t want to spend much money. Otherwise, you’ll hit a wall that prevents you from achieving the “three wins in a row” and you won’t even be able to complete your dailies. Keep a fighter in one of your slots for this purpose. If you can hang on long enough, and earn / buy enough credits, you’ll find the class matches are the best part of the game. Just a shame it’s not available sooner. CS is polite, if you can reach them, but devs don’t appear to listen. Save your time. Better to write a review. You’ll need loads of credits just to afford all the ship slots you’ll want to have for the endgame (new content). Keep the best ship from each class as you grind, so you won’t have to buy and upgrade them (credits) a second time after you’re level 37 or higher. Also, try to keep them in order as you advance. There’s no way to rearrange the ships on your carousel once you’ve bought them, and it’s a pain to go from slot 1, to 4, then 7, then back to 2, as you go through the class battles. -3 stars for putting the best part of the game (fair fights) behind a huge grind wall / pay wall
Great game but some problems
by Tankds on 2019/04/30 14:54
This is an awesome game that I love playing, but after this new update I have been stuck fighting the same guy over and over even if I do press new enemy button. I really hope this gets fixed so I can continue upgrading ships.
Pretty good but...
by yungbusto on 2019/04/30 14:53
What happened with class battle? At first it required me to get 150, then it required me to get 200. Immediately after getting 200 it demanded 400? I didn’t even get to do one class battle before it asked me? Why is there even a rank requirement for class battle in the first place?
Best game in the tablet
by sg coco on 2019/04/26 21:38

Celestium offers don’t work
by HønestÅnt on 2019/04/22 02:41
Don’t bother doing the offers for free celestium. I’ve done an offer that requires you to buy something and I’ve done an offer that requires you to complete a survey. Neither work. Not sure why they are in the game.
It surprised me
by Mrsstrobey on 2019/04/21 05:07
Ok, so when I first saw this game it was on an instagram ad that was awful. I decided to check it out anyways, because it still looked somewhat intriguing. Now that I have played a little bit of it, this game is amazing. Just kinda wanted to say this Step up your ad game guys
Good game but needs work
by Rebeccaxlights on 2019/04/20 17:56
I can’t even open the game it only shows the title screen and does not load, even with my WiFi at high bars. Also needs to add Shrek and donkey reproduction
Problems
by mostnebula75 on 2019/04/19 14:09
Every few matches my shields won’t work/pull up and so I get absolutely destroyed. It works after I leave the game and then come back but I have to wait forever until I can fly that ship again. Not worth playing until it gets fixed.👎
Tutorial too long. Make optional

It’s decent, but most of the descriptions on ship equipment are misleading
by PyroS369 on 2019/04/18 15:05
I bought the vector thrusters and the description said that it allows a ship to improve its turning speed by surprising amounts, but all I saw was that it made me spin around just as fast as the every other ship and become a sitting duck because of the almost complete lack of forward thrust. The game is a cool idea, but I don’t think giving players the option to waste 30,000 credits on something that claims to be good is a nice idea.
Won’t get pass the opening loading screen

Hi, first off I would like to say that this is one of my favorite games. However; just today I lost all of my progress and I had saved up just under 1000000 and I can’t get it back. Could I get my credits back???
No balance and rating system
by Alllexian on 2019/04/16 17:36
So, sooner or later you will get to that moment when you will be logging once a day just to loose. Cause you will be against ships what way stronger. Kinda irritating when all what you can do, see how player on max lvl with all unlocked weapons and ships kill you. Because system cant find equal enemy. I thought when i had my Cruiser 19 lvl against Battleship lvl 26 - unfair... so it never changes. You will be fighting against higher and stronger enemies and in most of the battles you will loose. So you gonna log in once a day until you just delete this game. I’d would love to suggest - balance. Like make it real. On ship lvl 10 you cant defeat ship lvl 25! Make searching not by the rating but by lvl of ships in hanger. Cause even if you bought premium ship. Your technology still lover. And you basically cant even penetrate armor or shield with your low lvl guns. And enemy ship did one shot with supper rocket lvl 50 and vipe your ship.
Love this game!!
by Viper17837 on 2019/04/15 18:38
This game has in depth strategy elements and a very good variety of weapons that can really make you think about your ship design
Improved
by A big nerdo on 2019/04/15 16:19
After the latest update, the game has solved one the main problems they had before. The problem being that you have no reason to ever use a ship that isn’t your strongest. Now that you can take any ship and battle ships of the same class, you can finally experiment with any ship you want to. Would definitely consider this a huge improvement.
Great Game
by DUnBornlegen(limit of letters) on 2019/04/15 14:55
It’s a great strategic game and here’s a tip use your credits in the begging wisely don’t just buy anything you can afford in so far as it will take a while getting those credits back
New update ruined game
by Doom Blade on 2019/04/15 05:12
I was playing Space arena for a while enjoying the accomplishment of being able to finish the daily goals every day. After the latest update (2.0.13) I get paired against much larger ships that take mine apart in seconds. The update has ruined the game completely.
Great all around.
by HendershotBleak on 2019/04/12 06:47
I played this game a few years ago and got bored and stopped. I recently started playing again and even got back my level 34 account. A day or two later I somehow lost access to the old account. I started emailing customer service and while it took several days they went above and beyond to make things right. They exceeded my expectations. Excellent customer service! The gameplay is very enjoyable and now with the new updates new levels of strategy can be played with. No ship is invincible. I find it very fun to tinker with different weapons and set ups. It can take some time to unlock extra ship slots but it’s totally worth it. You’ll advance pretty quick at first but it slows down later on, which is a good thing. All in all it’s a fun game.
No carry-over on mediocre game

Can’t get support, website always errors
by DJ Mike Zero on 2019/04/07 03:55
Accidentally purchased $49.99 of Celestium. Can’t find a way to get in touch with support to reverse the charge. Tried using your website submission form, it would always have an “internal error”. I need this charge reversed ASAP.
Great Game, But frustrating
by Monkey11111222 on 2019/04/04 23:01
This is a really great game, but it moves too fast for you to enjoy yourself, you can never get good, there is always another person that’s better, and it will pair you up with them. (Also pay to win)
Awesome
by Billyringo on 2019/03/30 22:18
I've had this game for a while and I love it I like the customization that you have on the ships. Great job guys!!!!!
Loving it
by Regnadian on 2019/03/29 12:11
Lot of fun designing your own star fighter and easy to learn
Not bad, but it has a few problems
by Macanfluffy on 2019/03/29 01:16
First of all I’ve been having this problem where my enemies are able to shoot through my armor using lasers, which REALLY hurts my ability to succeed, and some ships are stupidly overpowered, to the point where getting the next 3-5 ships is unnecessary. And if you don’t get that ship, then prepare for a metric ton of pain and sadness. Other than that it’s great.
Space arena
by #1Viper1# on 2019/03/26 16:58
The game is well made, and the game play is good and smooth. The match up could use a little work, as I get through the game I will randomly get the way op ship for my class. Also I think that if you flag out of a fight because there is no chance of wining, the time should be cut in half for waiting for repairs.
Cool game
by A pee fetish game on 2019/03/25 01:21
I’m enjoying the game greatly I don’t feel like I have to buy stuff but I can and so far it seems very well-balanced I’ve only been playing probably about two weeks
Pretty Decent Game
by MaxRPGer on 2019/03/23 19:38
It is a relaxing game IMHO. There is no long list of daily task to complete to get reward. The dev is pretty generous with providing premium currency by watching ads and daily task. Currently I am at level 22. My main ship is still the one that I spent $5 on when I was level 5. It is the PSS Miran which is a level 15 ship. I have been able to fight again level 20 ships and win. I don’t know why I haven’t fought any PSS Miran online at all, I only saw it on offline battles. Here are the reasons that I don’t give it 5 stars: 1. No battle record history or replay. 2. Would be nice to see ships configuration that you have battled online or offline. 3. You can only invite friends from Facebook. Not sure why only Facebook. 4. Allow us to convert Celestium (premium currency) to normal currency will be nice.
Accidental in-app purchase

Need to be able to play against friends but a great game over all
Only one flaw
by Bucking_Fitches on 2019/03/19 02:06
Love the game, even spent a few bucks, the only thing I run into that I dislike is when you’re matched with someone you have to use your special currency which is hard to get if you want to skip to the next opponent and I believe it would be better if you had like 5 or so with a kinda short timed recharge. Just my opinion.
Needs work
by wolf nid on 2019/03/17 19:38
Love the game some of the special ships I have acquired are amazing but my problem is it won’t show you how much xp you need till you level up nor is there a real player profile section just settings....
Nice game could use more options
by Wasr30 on 2019/03/17 15:26
Game play could be improved alot by adding some controls during combat. Would be nice to be able to tell the ship where to target the other ship, or when/ where to jump
Best game ever....
by mom2ELM2 on 2019/03/17 10:12
I really enjoy this game. I'm very happy south of now that the customer support team actually fixed the bug I was having with my daily missions. I will be playing this game for the foreseeable future.
Matchmaking
by mr.othernerd on 2019/03/17 05:05
It’s a really fun game but the match making is sometimes horrendous. Because it so much fun being 65 point thingy(don’t know what it’s called) and versing a 76 point person several time in a row, i wasted 15 or so celestium to be repeatedly matched against the same person, that’s about 4-5 attempts to be matched against someone else, and what a surprise they were ten points ahead of me and I lost, for the 3rd time against them. So devs great game but fix the match making
enjoyable
by Calabrish on 2019/03/17 01:26
Thus is a generally amusing game. Though I found out the the “invite friends” thing is not working. I’ve been inviting my friend and he hasn’t received a notification if the invitation. edit: Could you possibly put in a feature where we can sell our ships? and if the ships have modifications on it we get at least half of the price we spent on that modification. please.
Awesome game, one suggestion
by NovaStorm93 on 2019/03/12 13:13
This game is one of the best free games I have played yet. Ads aren’t excessive, premium currencies are easy to get, and nothing is so expensive or bad that you have to pay to progress. However, when it comes to battling ships, it is kinda obscure where the ships health is. My current theory is that when all weapons are gone, the battle is over. I’d like it if you could make it so there is either a health bar, or a tip that tells you how health is calculated and when defeat is.
Scammed
by Couch Patmos on 2019/03/11 18:25
The game scammed me hardcore, it gave me an offer for a cheap ship for like $17 instead of $37 and so I buy it and I get charged the $37. I am disappointed that this happens, if this isn’t fixed I am gonna make a big deal about this issue.
The game will not start
by Cameron oppenheim on 2019/03/10 18:23
It is not starting and I just downloaded it
Fun and addictive, but...
by あんこ食う人 on 2019/03/06 19:26
I recommend everyone to play this game. It is very entertaining and highly addictive. It is fun watching my ship destroy another ship or vise versa. It’s great that one gets to actually see how the fighting goes and fix their weak spots. I haven’t had problems with the ads either. There aren’t many ads like any other free video game groups, I’m not going to mention any names VooDoo. There are a few problems though. One is that it is very difficult to collect points. After purchasing a new ship, it takes so much time to collect more for the next ship. Another problem is that when the game says that you either won or lost a battle against a person, it doesn’t let you see the actual battle. I recommend adding an option to see the battle. I like to watch the battle go on and then fix my issue on my ship, but it doesn’t let me do that. Other than that, it is amazing. The options are not confusing at all, and no OP ships that I know of so far. I absolutely love the game.
How awesome this app is
by SM&A on 2019/03/06 01:40
You rarely see games where you get to completely build your own thing and use it. I am really enjoying this app.
Wait times are so annoying
by get GOF2 on 2019/03/05 00:13
Great game cool building, then when you loose a battle you have to wait such a long time because repairs please shorten or get rid of repair time.
Too many ads
by KindleAccounte on 2019/03/02 20:02
Game is not all that fun for the number of ads they make me watch
Wow!

Pay to win
by Sophie26773389: on 2019/02/22 20:35
You can win the first few battles, but once past lvl 40 you have to spend real money to win
So you can’t actually play
by motthman on 2019/02/21 23:47
All you do is build a ship you don’t even get to control it. I got this app thinking it was going to be a terratech sort of game but was completely mistaken.
Uggg!!!
by Oceanwaved on 2019/02/21 05:27
It’s ok but IT WONT LET ME PLAY!!!!!! I played on another device and it worked but it won’t work this time. I was a big fan of the game but I can’t play it. I even tried reinstalling it!
Plan carefully
by ms18lm on 2019/02/14 06:33
It is very frustrating when you are trying to buy upgrades for a ship hull plan, and you lose 83 of the premium currency that you earned. In game I did a free download and played a game. I did the requirements, and never received the in game currency.
Decent until lv25
by Centurion041 on 2019/02/12 02:50
When I first got this game, it seemed like a good game. I’d read some reviews about the Destroyer Vega and all that, so I decided to give the game a shot. It was fun when people used many different weapon types; it added an element of chance. Now, at lv27, there’s only two (maybe 3) types of weapons I see used: Mk.II Railguns, Pulse Lasers/Arcfusion (pretty sure on the arcfusion, definitely pulse), and Arsenal wall. No variety, and the Mk.II Railgun needs to be balanced. There needs to be more of a chance element to the game Edit: Found more ridiculously OP weapons and other modules. Shoutout to the Mk. II Sentry Laser. Fires slower than the standard, but deals more damage, uses ZERO power, and GENERATES 25 power. SERIOUSLY?!?! The fact that a module this blatantly unbalanced exists is disturbing to me. Some serious tweaking needs to be done with a lot of the modules. Will just throw in another few unbalanced modules (Based on Black Market descriptions): Scorpion Launcher Mk. II, Flak Rocket Turret Mk. II, Fusion and Hydra Turret Mk. II, and Capital Cannon Mk. II.
Hopefully the destroyer Vega doesn’t wreck me
by PRISON SOAP on 2019/02/10 01:26
The game is honestly really good you’re given a lot of options to fix your ships up but I’m a level 22 so I’ll see how the game goes threw out my leveling up so it might go threw a good path or a bad one but the games good
One of the most underrated games I’ve played so far
by Vermin III on 2019/02/09 08:24
All I can say is give it a try you won’t be disappointed
Need updates
by peanut ninja five on 2019/02/06 23:23
I can’t even play the game it won’t load 👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿
Great, but needs more
by Sutherlan_d on 2019/02/03 12:31
Love the new updates. I’ve been playing for a long time and have every weapon, a full inventory of the best ship, and completed everything. Just wish you had more weapon options, upgrades and new ships. Thanks for a great game!
Quit Working for me
by rr_brockker on 2019/02/01 03:08
I have had this game for a year now and got a new phone so I had to restart. I've had it now for a week and then I would load in. I would open the app but then it would never load. I tried restarting my phone and that didn't help. I've also tried deleting and re-downloading to app too. Is there anything I could do?
Honest developers
by Jake (not really) on 2019/01/31 23:32
One of the very few games out there that aren’t trying to steal your money. This game rarely plays ads and it is not at all pay to win. It’s a bit of a grind but that makes it so buying that new ship is all that better. Very very easy to play you just sit back and watch your ship battle.
Annoying

Excellent Game for Mobile, but with some Balancing Issues
by Phantom_38 on 2019/01/19 00:15
Got the game a couple days ago and am very pleased with it. The ship design is very expansive and I’d venture to even say immersive. The grind isn’t too brutal to earn the cash necessary to buy new ships, the weapon types feel unique, the campaign is very nice and a great way to earn cash, the Celestium isn’t like most special currency in mobile games where it is pay to win. However, the balancing in the matchmaking needs tweaking. During the transition phase between Corvette to Frigate I noticed how utterly unfair it was once I reached the endless numbers of Valkyries fighting my Dart or Raven. And before that using the base corvette to slaughter fighters. The disparity in the ships can be off putting, I think that the level should determine matches. A level 1 can only fight other level 1s or level 2s, a level 20 can only fight other level 20s or a level below or higher. The final point is the need for a nerf of lasers, the bypassing shields is pretty garbage and leads to a stupid meta of plastering a ship with lasers and shields and reactors and you can’t lose. If a laser is going through a shield I think the damage has to be lessened. And this is just a little thing but the ability to color the ships would be very nice, would lead to more creativity in the playerbase. And maybe a test area where you can take a ship you lost to and put it against your new ship design without the repairs but you don’t earn cash or experience for winning in this test area
Doesn’t work on IPhone X

Great game with a crappy RNG
by Jester776 on 2019/01/16 20:02
Game is fun and requires no real money to advance and have fun. HOWEVER the RNG for battles is absolute trash. You can go against the same exact enemy with the same exact spec as your previous fight and have totally different outcome. So the missiles miss way too much. I can fire five Vollys of the Max level launcher and only on salvo will hit. All in all a good game with horribly flawed RNG
Very fun
by Comish069 on 2019/01/11 07:24
Very fun game time consuming game Great options with ships The only reason I didn’t give this game five stars is because you can’t control the ship and no clan u can join
Fun game but...
by Brian McDaniel 4753278@ on 2018/02/13 23:59
The destroyer vega literally ruins the game. So for people who are thinking about downloading this game, know this. The game is really fun and competitive, with really no need to spend any money on the game. I did a few times because I really enjoyed playing... until you get to around lvl. 30. Then the game gives you an offer to buy the "Destroyer Vega" for 13$.. if you pass this offer up you won't be given another chance to buy it.. the destroyer vega is extremely over powered for its level. It is a lvl 30 ship that can easily overpower lvl 35 ships... so now that you are about lvl 28 you will only be put up against "destroyer vega" ships for the next 6-7 levels, who crush you, making you have to wait 30 mins between getting crushed again by another destroyer vega, and earning no cash or experience between battles... if this gets fixed I will continue playing but until then I'm stuck at this impassable destroyer vega plague that ruined the game! UPDATE: hey guys! Sorry I was a little heated when I made this review (after losing to the vega many times in a row). Yes! I think the game seems to be matching up a lot better now! I think this problem is fixed and I would strongly recommend this game to anyone! Please add more cool ships and features soon:)
Still needs work but a decent game
by Jcheshire85 on 2018/08/02 12:00
So this started out as a good game. I noticed some small sync glitches at first, but now that I’ve paid for a few things it’s getting worse. I bought a unique ship (the Federation Pirate Ship) for $15 and when I bought another ship (Morningstar) even though I had it replacing a different ship, it deleted my unique ship! And there is no chance to repurchase it. Needless to say I will be filing for a refund and really encourage people not to waste their time and especially their money on this game! Edit* - it took some time but they were able to go back and give me back the ship I lost. The fact that the customer service actually cares enough to email you and help is great! The only reason this doesn’t get more stars is bc as I played through, I noticed that the Fleet Arena matchup system still needs some work. There are times where it matches me against fleets with fighter and corvette level ships (all mine are battleship level) which means even after I wipe out their fleet I get very little experience. Then I have to wait an hour before I can fight again. I would suggest either fixing the matchup system to only fight fleets of your level or shortening the wait time (like if you wipe out a fleet, you only have to wait 10 minutes). But the developers are good at listening to their customers so I encourage anyone to make suggestions.
Great game
by CadeAaronKelly on 2017/12/21 02:44
Unlike a lot of games you don’t have to buy anything to actually play. It’s a lot of fun and getting premium currency isn’t too hard. You can do challengers each day and get like 40 and then watch adds and get like 20 more. Researching new tech isn’t a waiting game, if you have the credits you get it instantly. You can also buy upgraded components for either standard credits or premium currency. The only waiting is after you lose ship to ship PVP or the fleet battle PVP. Strategy is key and placement of components can make a low level ship a match for ships that are way above it in level. There’s a learning curve but once you figure it out it gets a lot easier. I recommend not spending premium currency to upgrade ships till at least level 10. Instead buy more ship yard slots. The upgrades add a few extra slots to different sections. Some extend the front, add a few extra slots near the middle, extend the rear, or add more engine slots. Best mobile game I’ve played!
Enjoyable game but beware..
by Torque2Spec on 2018/02/21 02:24
I really like this game for how simple it is. Ads are not the core of the game witch is nice. You can watch ads if you choose but you are rewarded for doing so with in-game money to help you out and not at a worthless rate, witch is nice. You have plenty of options to fit your ships in a offensive and/or defensive strategy. My only issue is with the Vega. I’m not mad that cost real money. I’m not even mad that it’s $13. When you hit level 30 you are given the option to pick up this absolute over powered beast. I you are willing to spend money (by level 30 you will know if you really like the game) then I guess do it. BECAUSE IF YOU DONT.. prepare for a long painful struggle to level 35. The Vega will show you no mercy. It’s extremely hard to take one out. You are thrown in with Vega’s over 50% of the matches so it’s going to get annoying. Weather that’s all just a ton of people dropping skrilla on a iconic ship that totally lives up to its name, or they just toss this into make you want to buy it more, I don’t know. Seems kinda sketch how many times I have to fight one but that’s just me maybe. I’m level 34 with a Phantom and I’m still getting smoked by Vega’s on a regular basis but not as much as the early 30’s. This is my only gripe with the game or I would give it 5 stars.
Destroyer Vega Destroyed This Game
by AdmiralOrko on 2018/02/07 05:40
I started playing a few months back, and even decided I liked the game enough to make a purchase. Then, as a certain space movie was releasing the devs decided to capitalize on the hype by releasing some ships “heavily inspired” by a certain incredibly popular sci-fi franchise, for real money. Now, I’ll ignore the IP violations and lawsuit your favorite mouse could likely hit this little studio with, and I can even ignore selling a little power for money and giving people who choose to make a purchase a small advantage over free players. Power sells, the devs need to eat. I get it. But one of the ships released is so ungodly powerful it’s stupid. I’m talking it’s a waste to keep playing where I am in the ladder. If I get matched against a Destroyer Vega, I lose. I get 0 exp or currency, and a 20 minutes wait until I can hit the button to get randomly matched with another Destroyer Vega. I can’t complete the dailies, I can’t even get another level to reach the next ship. So, you can’t get the free shop currency at a decent rate, can’t level, and can’t progress unless you’re willing to shell out the cash to progress, and likely the next ship up won’t solve the problem anyways. So, you do what you have left. You delete the game, leave a long winded not good review, and kiss the game goodbye.
Short-lived game unless you spend money
by ForcedNickname on 2017/11/24 00:28
Another reviewer was spot on: ships become obsolete quickly and are too expensive to replace without paying real money. Your ships don’t get matched based on its class. They are matched by your ranking. My level 6 ship just got matched against a level 12 and level 15 in the last two matches I played. My other two ships are level 7 and 10. The level 10 does well sometimes but is quickly becoming average. The game doesn’t reward you with enough credits to buy new ships for each hangar you own or keep up with new tech research, so you end up with fairly useless ships to play with unless your opponent has a horrible design. Add to the fact when you lose a battle there is a repair timer, so depending on your matchmaking luck, you may have a very short play session. I do recommend trying this game though because it is fun to play and test out different ship builds, but due to increasing repair timers and pricey ships and tech as you progress, the game slows down a lot and ultimately won’t stay on the virtual “shelf” for long.
Great all around.
by HendershotBleak on 2019/04/12 06:47
I played this game a few years ago and got bored and stopped. I recently started playing again and even got back my level 34 account. A day or two later I somehow lost access to the old account. I started emailing customer service and while it took several days they went above and beyond to make things right. They exceeded my expectations. Excellent customer service! The gameplay is very enjoyable and now with the new updates new levels of strategy can be played with. No ship is invincible. I find it very fun to tinker with different weapons and set ups. It can take some time to unlock extra ship slots but it’s totally worth it. You’ll advance pretty quick at first but it slows down later on, which is a good thing. All in all it’s a fun game.

Destroyer Vega ruined the gameplay of a very fun, interactive game
by Liladeans on 2018/02/16 22:40
The addition of the Destroyer Vega has ruined this game. I stared this game maybe 2 months ago and loved it. It was fun, interactive, competitive (to a level that was good for a free phone game) and was easy to play. Once I got to the levels where the Destroyer Vega became available, the tide completely changed. I can’t level up, I can’t complete the dailies, I can’t win any battles (even at higher levels than the Destroyer Vegas) and even if I spend Celestium currency to cycle to a different opponent, I get matched up with a Destroyer Vega 10+ times over until I finally give up and fight and lose. This ship should not be out performing ships at higher levels, every single time. It is so overpowered that even with the better ships as better tech, it destroys. There is a level of disparancy that is unfair to players who have chosen NOT to pay money to play and have chosen NOT to pay money for the ship. I’ve seen responses on here from the devs that they’re working on the problem and that it should be fixed. Let me tell you, it is NOT.
Horrible Zero app support
by Zimbob11111111 on 2018/07/27 21:54
Easy to lose all your progress. I did an in app purchase made sure it would replace one of my worst ships instead it replaced my favorite ship. Can’t even contact app support just get an error message. As proof I submit try sending a message in “app support” here is the message I tried to send which only generated an error message... Ok so first I lost all my progress and about $100 of extras and had to start all over. Now I buy a $25 ship ask it to replace my Therion but instead it replaces my favorite ship the Miran I want my Miran back I said nothing about the first progress loss but if you don’t fix this second issue miran in 48 hours let the horrible reviews begin. After a week I got some help. Since no customer service button this review must have got their attention. Got my ship back after second try lost all my upgrades cost me alot to get both ships back to original. So sick of experience don’t even play anymore should delete the app.
Major, Glaring, Flaws.
by SylBlade on 2017/11/27 10:10
Fun enough, simple time killer. But it comes with a few major issues. 1. The Raven ship comes with two Fighters that, well, don’t really fight. My fighters will get in a shot or two and then disappear off into the sunset, flying off the map never to be seen again. Meanwhile the enemies fighters are more than happy to stick around and triple team me. 2. Inconsistency. In one instance (let’s use the Raven again) I begin combat and my two ships fly in immediately. As they begin to fire my ship blasts into the fray, joining in on the damage and usually that just about cripples them. But the very next match my two ships zoom in, and my main just sits there and waits. Doesn’t even so much as budge for about 5 seconds while the enemy takes down both of my fighters then turns on me for a 3v1. If I can’t control my ships at least make them consistent, if not logical. 3. Price jump. Ship X is worth 50k. Ship Y is worth 99k. Ship Z is worth 250k. Where did that come from, and why? I’m about to level into the next bracket of ships anyways, and lord knows I don’t make that much credit per fight. At level 8-9 I’m making about ~7k a pop. And you want me to buy a 250k ship? That is about to become obsolete in the next 10 matches anyways? So by the time I’m ready for the next ship (which is like 300k) I’m not even halfway to ship Z. How does that make any sense to anyone? Glaring issues my friends, make for a painfully average app. At best.
Amaizing
by Zombiebobby on 2017/12/04 05:42
I love this app and I love the many different ships and weapons you can use. It allows you to creat so many different ships for your chosen play style. But my only problem is the time for your ship to repair. Having better and bigger ships means longer repair time. It makes sense of a literal level but in a game I want to be able to fight many ships testing new styles and ways to build my ship with out having to wait half a hour in-between my defeats. It really slows the pace of the game especially when you consider the amount of money and EXP in between ships and levels. I’m not saying a total removal of the repair time but reduce it but a lot for the bigger ships or have a set repair time for each category of ships. That way it’s more reasonable and easier to play for a longer period of time. Other than that criticism i love the game and can’t wait for future update with more ships and utility’s to choose from! Very excited.
Great game!
by Dinubis on 2018/12/06 19:04
I started playing this about 2 years ago. I stopped because it was slanted so heavily towards PTW. I have since come back to it, and found it much more enjoyable. The balance is right, the graphic quality is still good, and the ship customization options are incredible. I also love that combat is automatic. I can start a fight, check my email, come back and do it again. Not a time drain at all! Only one thing keeps this from a 5-star rating. The cost of new ships and tech is very high, and makes it difficult at times to afford newly unlocked options. I recently unlocked a new ship, but likely won't be able to afford it for some time while I build up my cash reserves. The premium currency helps, and it's nice that you get a good amount for free (completing daily bonuses), but getting a bonus of "X" amount of standard currency upon gaining a new level would help. All-in-all, a great game. Keep it up!
Fun, creative, frustrating (Updated)
by Virtual Hero on 2017/12/04 12:06
Pros: 1. It’s fun unlocking tech and designing ships. 2. Combat is quick with nice graphics. Cons: 1. Match making is seriously broken. It looks at what you’ve unlocked, not what you’re using. This routinely leads to unwinable fights. 2. There is no compensation when replace a ship. To add a new ship Hull it must completely replace a given ship in your available ship bays. I get this but the replaced ship simply disappears along with all the resources you’ve put into it. 3. The game is entirely PvP. Even the “campaign” is fighting other players and it too scales up in difficulty faster than your ships requiring time spent farming. 4. “Fleet” battles are a joke. There is no visible fight. Simply a list of 4 teams and a results (i.e., you lost X ships and destroyed Y ships). 5. As I’ve moved into bigger ships I’ve found when the close in they overlap allow weapons to hit areas they shouldn’t be able to. This totally bypasses all defenses. Suggestions: 1. Make the campaign vs. AI and scale more appropriately. 2. Slow down the advancement rate on league ranks. 3. Add a daily combat mission for resources (aside from the existing “fight X times” tasks). 4. Allow the player to choose the ship they will fight with based on the enemy matched. Currently, you select your ship and fight whatever is thrown at you. 5. Totally rework fleet battles. Make the fleet battles one person’s fleet vs one person’s fleet in viewable real time.
No balance and rating system
by Alllexian on 2019/04/16 17:36
So, sooner or later you will get to that moment when you will be logging once a day just to loose. Cause you will be against ships what way stronger. Kinda irritating when all what you can do, see how player on max lvl with all unlocked weapons and ships kill you. Because system cant find equal enemy. I thought when i had my Cruiser 19 lvl against Battleship lvl 26 - unfair... so it never changes. You will be fighting against higher and stronger enemies and in most of the battles you will loose. So you gonna log in once a day until you just delete this game. I’d would love to suggest - balance. Like make it real. On ship lvl 10 you cant defeat ship lvl 25! Make searching not by the rating but by lvl of ships in hanger. Cause even if you bought premium ship. Your technology still lover. And you basically cant even penetrate armor or shield with your low lvl guns. And enemy ship did one shot with supper rocket lvl 50 and vipe your ship.
Bugs and “Vega destroyer”
by Add editing! on 2018/02/20 17:03
First off let’s all clear up that the “Vega destroyer and “ace eagle” are total rip offs from Star Wars. The Vega has ruined the game, but can be gotten around with strong warrior builds. Additionally taking off another star due to bugs, has anyone else ever warped inside a mine or torpedo? Spawned a mine inside another ship? Other than that amazing game. I truly enjoy the strategy involved in designing the perfect ship. Edit: Thanks for the response! I have noticed a decreased amounts of Vegas, which is certainly helping my credit income a ton. I would also like to see some improvements with the fleet battle function, in the coming updates, as currently it is just a trade for credits to xp, not any worthwhile mechanic. Again, great game, and thanks for the feedback! Sector 4 a challenge 4 is broken, I always target the scythe and the warrior smashes me from behind. Set the warrior as the main ship with a scythe as support.

It’s a simple fun game to play a bit here and there, at first. Unfortunately, ships quickly become obsolete, and buying a “cutting edge” one is very expensive. Also, you have to get all you can out of a ship design you love while it’s your best because it will eventually become unplayable. I’ve hit the point where I cannot afford to buy a new ship without failing upward through putting my tiny fighters against opponents cruisers. Loosing brings no rewards, so I am at the mercy of a cruel matchmaker for any gains. The game would be vastly improved if ships were limited to fighting against other ships of their class. This would allow players to progress when the ships they can afford are not equal to their rank and it would encourage players to keep old hulls to continue experimenting with. (I wouldn’t mind buying a few extra ship bays just to keep playing ships I like. Provided there was a reason to.)
Good game but has issues
by Texan28467889 on 2017/12/06 17:34
I enjoyed this game because I found it to be a good way of killing time. Though I dislike that ships in the game can become obsolete as your level increases and the random fights at based on your level not class makes getting money and new ships difficult. I think the game would be better if players had the choice how the random fight are pick, whether it's chosen based on the players level or chosen based on the Players ship class. This way players can buy newer bigger ships but still keep their old favorites. Though with this new update my account lost all its information thus setting me back by months. I'm still on the fence whether I should just quit now or try all over again. I choose to give this game four stars because it did its job keeping me entertained, though the issues I mentioned before are thing the developers should look into.
Unfair
by Tw33k3r2011 on 2018/02/14 23:54
The match up for ships is highly flawed. So the most destructive weapons against armor is rockets yet ships armor can easily deflect or ignore the damage. Even when their shields are down. Yet they can use ballistic weapons which do less damage and some that are decent fire so slow it’s useless can defeat a ship with all rockets. I use a combo of ballistic and rockets to do heavy damage and take down ships yet their just ballistics can defeat me. Game is overall fun and decent but don’t expect to win because the combat system is flawed and really destroys the fun. I have currently lost 15 fights out of 20 with the same build that won 18 in a row. Update: the match making process of who you fight is better. Also the amount of damage ballistics do is better but there is still some unevenness when it comes to rockets. I get they have lots of counters but when they connect I expect them to do more damage and to a larger area than the ballistics.
Great game that needs changes
by rainplop on 2019/05/02 02:54
There are a few things that need to be done to make this game far, far more enjoyable, and challenging. Currently, the combat logic is so generic for all ships that it doesn’t really work for any of them very well. 1 Please implement a method to choose the ships behavior in combat. Simple choices related to tactics. This change would allow for many ship designs that would not be possible or would not be effective otherwise. For example, I may want my ship to close in on its opponents and stay close OR I may want to stay far away from my enemy OR I may want to fly past my enemy very fast without stoping. Very importantly, I may want to face my opponent, OR I may want to try to orbit him while never stopping. a. Allow us to choose a side, front, or the rear of our ship to try to keep towards our enemy. b. Allow us to choose a distance to try to maintain from our opponent. c. Allow us to choose how to respond to a ship warping close to us. Stay and fight OR run. Allow us to choose how to act when we warp to an enemy. Hit and run, OR try to stay close to the enemy. 2 Spacefaring races with incredibly sophisticated technology might at some point learn how to ROTATE things. Let us rotate items when placing them. Rotating a weapon would rotate its firing arc. Thanks
SO FUN developer not at end
by OngoingCoyote71 on 2018/03/11 03:09
I have been playing this game for about 10 hours now and have been having a blast pun intended. There are in app purchases but there is really no need I don’t feel it is pay to win and it does have adds but they are rare to be mandatory by far the best game I have played and for a free game at that I do plan to get some in game purchases to support the developers and because I love this game so much. The developers are active and fixing as many bugs as possible if you are considering the game try it. PS for developers, however when I got the heavy fighter it would not let me battle I uninstalled and reinstalled cause I wanted to give it a chance but this could dissuade new players it may be a glitch or a problem on my phone but I hope you look into it
PSS Miran? No bundle this time? Add forever?
by GamezReveiw3 on 2018/11/22 01:48
I notice that in one your screenshots for the preview of the game showing a picture of the USS Reliant, or what looks to be. I’ve looked through the ship catalog and didn’t see any Reliant - looking vessels. Please, I ask one thing, add the Reliant - looking vessel back in the game without a bundle, it would make lots of the Trekkies that play this game pretty happy to have this ship back, without the need for spending real money. Please also if you do add it back maybe you would add some more star trek stuff in the future. It’s already really good, but star trek ships would make it even better. Other than that, this game is really good and I would recommend it to my friends that like this kind of stuff.
Potential Marred
by Ryan Sanguine on 2017/12/16 03:20
There’s so much to like about this little time waster; do your best to build a ship capable of bringing down other ships. There’s tons of depth to be had, if only that depth wasn’t hidden underneath under frustratingly steep module and chassis costs that come and are made obsolete far too quickly to keep up with, without opening your wallet anyway. The actual combat mechanics are a crap shoot. There is no rhyme or reason to how penetrating weapons actually deal damage to modules behind them, no consistency in how the AI engages opponents or what they aim for, warp drives have no discernible activation behavior, afterburners do... Nothing as far as I’ve seen. Now there’s some blatantly p2w “destroyer” chassis unashamedly borrowed directly from Star Wars that wholly mops the floor with everything and starts showing up in the matchmaking when you are 15 levels below the comparable “legit” hull. This exacerbates the already glaring issues with matchmaking; matches are made according only to arena rank, so you find yourself quickly outclassed after you actually start to win fights and have to start saving over weeks to get a better hull; there is no way to make actual money besides winning fights so your progress gets bottlenecked by luck of the draw over your proficiency as a player. It was cool for the first 10 levels or so, then quickly became markedly grindy, finally coming to a rest at “not fun.”
2338 reviews but I get the same 5 ppl to fight no matter what
by EBin3D on 2018/06/09 16:14
There is obviously a few thousand ppl playing this game or at least there was but as of right now I’m almost a lvl 29 and have fought the same 5 ppl the entire time I’ve been play through multiple different classes it’s just stupid i can fight the same 5 ppl 1000 times in a row best them all and somehow they are still in my league makes absolutely no sense match making is a joke and the pilots are very dumb you can equip all long range weapons and a warp system and your pilot will still try to drive your ship inside the enemy ship letting them bypass your shields to destroy inner weapons basically making your build useless... if you would fix match making and pilot AI maybe give us a setting so we can pick if we want are pilot to focus on close quarters long range or mid range fighting instead of letting it be random luck if they uses the weapons correct or not
Fun for a time BUT......
by newly Annoyed on 2017/12/05 12:17
This game is fun for a while. However, it doesn’t take long before the only way you can compete with even smaller less powerful ships is to purchase upgrades. Unfortunately it becomes impossible to win enough to get these upgrades without resorting to buying several in app purchases. The game is very obviously slanted in such a way that it becomes impossible to win against even ships that by the statistics should have no chance against you. It is dismaying to find yet another game that is very fun but so obviously geared towards forcing you to their in app purchases. I kept track in twenty fights fifteen were against ships at least a class above my own and unbeatable and the remaining five got LUCKY hits that had no business doing the damage they did. Too much coincidence for my tastes.
Some critiquing
by Joe D. Johnson on 2018/01/30 18:06
I noticed the devs responding to reviews so I decided to write some feedback based on what I’ve experienced. Because the game is based on rank rather than ship/weapon level you technically get punished for playing too much by getting taken to a high rank before you have enough money to match the level of ships you’re facing. In my case I have no ships past the corvette level and every enemy I get pitted against is using a frigate. I have no way of getting cash but hoping that my ship focuses the same area enough to break a piece of the enemy to give me a fraction of the victory money. I now am forced to wait for handouts from dailies or the shop in order to scrape by. I do like the ship customization and the strategy and thought that goes into it and even by just allowing your rank to go down when you fail an attack could fix my problems.
Felt like something changed....
by Hinata Huhga on 2018/10/27 05:32
At first - game was enjoyable. U design ships and try to create an advantage by using weapons and armor against potential weaknesses on the opponent. U do not control the ship - all pre-determined simulators u watch. I found with decent design u won 50% of evenly matched battles - 90% where u had the advantage. What u would expect. But in the last few weeks - feels like they changed the simulator algorithm. Now - I win about 10% of even matches and maybe 40% where I should have clear advantage. Feels rigged now - like I am being cheated. Lastly - feel like there is a bug out there somewhere - I like to call it the drunken pilot bug. About every 10-15 matches - my ship... well it flies like the driver is drunk . For the most part the program follows a logic - point the nose of the ship at the enemy... right... but occasional, my pilot turns for unexplained reasons to show its sweet spot to the enemy... and well... I’m dead and I quit playing for a while out of disbelief my ship would just turn sideways all a sudden. I almost just wish they would call it that - ‘ur pilot has been drinking - sorry - bad luck chap’ Game is worth playing if u like design and sim - but just be ready to shake u head in wonder at bad flight algorithms and seemingly random losses to lesser foes.
Rip off, lazy company, addictive tho.
by mattsanti on 2019/06/21 09:50
Let’s start with addressing the issue of this game ripping off names or designs of other sci fi galaxys like, Star Wars, battlestar galagaca and Star Trek. There is a ship named the viper that looks like the viper in BSG, they have a ship fighter named the “wing” which looks like a x wing from Star Wars, also the “Destroyer Vega” which is a star destroyer. I can go on and on and on. That is petty and I hope they get copyrighted and get sued a lot. Also it’s hard to earn a lot of credits and the amount of credits you earn from winning battles does not increase much when you go up in level. Also I did spend real money on this game and a purchase went wrong where I did not get the item but I was charged for it in my bank account. Lastly I reached out to them on the issue and my email was not responded to. Basicly a big F you thanks for the money in my face. Waste of time and money this game is trash.
Obnoxious warp drive
by EnfieldV on 2017/11/08 07:52
I love this game. But if I could change one thing about it it would be to get rid of the warp drive completely. 4 things 1) when two flanker strategy ships engage in combat whoevers warp drive consistently activates second wins because the first ship to jump gains no advantage as his adversary jumps behind him almost immediately. 2) there is no rhyme or reason to the jump sequence. 1 warp drive, 2 or even 3 does not seem to change the frequency or timing of the jump. 3) (probably just bad luck if it's random) concerning when one ship is a flanker and the other is not. the enemy ship consistently jumps to my unarmored flank whereas when I have my flanker it consistently jumps to a neutral position giving me no discernible advantage 4) not concerning the warp drive. Uneven battle pairing. Through level 15 it was very nice and I was consistently matched with the same or similar (1-2 levels) ships. Now that I'm level 23 I have been paired with ships as high as level 27 which I have no hope of beating. Suggestion. For fleet combat instead of having the silly little match up why not allow a matchup between the three ships I own and another players fleet where it would be like one ship on one ship but 3 versus 3.
Great game for a pay-to-win
by Vortimar on 2018/08/01 02:18
It’s a pay-to-win game. If you’re literally made of money - yes you can pay your way through it. I’ve spent $9.99. Not because I really had to but because I’ve been enjoying it so much and felt the dev needs to get paid for their great work. Early on if you build a great ship and don’t use your in-game currency wisely you’ll get to a place where you feel like you can’t advance without shelling out some cash. Solution: use a low level ship to lose a bunch of battles to decrease your tier (lower level ships take less time to repair than higher level ones) then you’ll be able to progress again.
Gets pretty boring once you hit the Vegas
by Artificial Intel on 2018/02/18 05:40
I guess a short while before I started playing, the Vega Destroyer was introduced and everybody got it because it’s really powerful for its class. Once you hit 600 rating it’s almost the only ship you fight for a long time. Until you get the Therion they’re really tough to beat, and even after it’s a long slow crawl to get out of the Vega zone. It’s a shame, because it’s just the kind of game I was waiting to see someone make, and it’s really well scaled and balanced in other respects. UPDATE: the devs are apparently working on the issue. Kudos to them for recognizing it’s an issue and responding to the comments here. On the other hand, at least the last 15 matches for me were all Vegas, so there’s some way to go.
Don’t Bother
by LukeSkyrata on 2018/11/01 01:54
Hi. This game has some great ideas and can be a lot of fun. But it has a number of frankly game-breaking issues that haven’t been fixed since they were introduced in the original release. First off, matchmaking is broken. More often than not I get stuck facing opponents with different tiers of ships, i.e. fighters vs frigates. It is also impossible to keep up with both research and the best ships you’ve unlocked due to limited funding. On top of this, there is an issue when matches run long where a winner is randomly selected, meaning that my 100% health ship lost to a 10% health ship. Add to this the fact that it is possible for opponents to turn around when you’re crushing them and kill you in two seconds. This is not skilled playing, as you do not in fact control your ship. This is broken AI. What with all of this, I’m afraid that this game is goin to give you far more rage than fun. Don’t bother with it.
Was fun while it lasted.
by tha_hof on 2017/12/15 21:50
The game was enjoyable before all of my progress got reset. I got a new phone and all of my old data was erased. My account was linked to Facebook which was supposed to save my data, but it did not. The combat was satisfying to watch and figuring out the best ways to build ships was great fun. The matchmaking system is pretty broken though. You're paired against people of a similar rank, you gain one rank point for winning and lose none after a loss. So instead of staying in a bracket where your ship is competitive you end up losing repetitively. It makes progress to the next tier impossible since your current ship can't keep up with your opponents and you have no way of making money or xp. So without spending loads of money in game you're stuck watching your ship getting blown to pieces by higher tiered ships repeatedly.
Very fun game...
by Flipmonger on 2019/05/03 03:34
...until it stops working. Spent a few weeks playing this game on breaks from work and life in general. Has kept my interest in progressing through the game, taking a bit longer than those paying for quicker and advanced perks; however, the free route makes it a bit more challenging. To my dismay, I loaded the game today only to be stuck on the Herocraft logo page while listening to the engaging intro loop for a good 10-minutes without any error message or loading time. Either a server is down or this game just simply crashed. Website doesn’t provide server status; therefore, I assume the game has simply crashed. Other games seem to continue to work fine, and power-cycling my iPhone did not remedy this issue. So, my review ends here... a very fun game... until it stops working.
Since my last review...
by Mysocialis on 2018/04/03 04:38
...I deleted the app and restarted. Pretty much the whole game is fun up until lvl 50. Lots of stuff to do and experiment with. They did seem to fix the pairing system which is nice. BUT problems they said they’d fix back in October-December are still around, namely: 1) ships still act like they’re piloted by 1st graders rather than as the ship is designed (ie ships with heavy frontal armor don’t attempt to turn toward the enemy, support craft still think they’re either kamikazes or that they’re supposed to run away and explore space, etc). 2) still dealing with the same repair bays you get in lvl 10. Apparently the black market update was the last update to add anything but bug fixes. 3) ships that overlap ignore shields or maybe it’s just a coincidence I get destroyed by ballistic fire nearly every time ships overlap? (Side note, this is another time your pilots turn into idiots. If your opponent has mines your ship WILL hover over theirs). 4) if you’re approaching lvl 50 (around lvl 45 or so) start looking for a new game. The super carriers are fun for a few days, not forever. 5) have multi-ship battles actually show the battle. If showing that many ships is a problem lessen the number of ships someone can play with.
I love the game
by devil dogs here on 2018/01/18 05:56
I truly love the game but i think you should fix the ai and the leveling you gave teir 9 going against ships that are 4 times my level its hard to play and everything if you could possibly fix that one thing i dont mind about anything i said last comments its just I truly love the game but like i said the match making is sorta out of hands making you go against super high levels that are really hard to kill and maybe more different types of weapons would be cool and please increase the number per credits you earn during a battle during a win or a defeat other them that i love the game and im gonna keep playing and also if can i need help with credits my name is mattyy in the game
Destroyer Vega is overplayed
by Hoardian on 2018/04/20 23:30
I bought the Vega, and had a blast with it for a few levels. The problem is, it’s so overplayed it makes the game boring. I’m level 35, with the latest ships, but I simply can’t get away from battling other Vegas. 4 out of every 5 battles. Also, for some quirky reason, I win more battles when I don’t play. I’ll return to the app after a day or so, and have maybe 4 victories and 1 loss...and some nice cash. But when I actually play and battle, 4 losses in a row....consistently. Then I put the game down and do something else because it’s a 30 minutes recharge. Totally fun game...just gotta get past that one blasted Vega.
A suggestion
by Colthorn on 2017/11/29 23:06
I really love this game, I'm a huge fan of building things and watching them fight. One thing that I'd love is that if they could add a button in the settings that allowed me to turn off just the music or just the sound effects. I really enjoy this game's soundtrack, so I do battles and do my homework while listening to the soundtrack, but sometimes the sound effects are a bit distracting. And I also like listening to my music while playing this game, but my music and the game's music collide, so I'd like to only listen to the sound effects (which are AWESOME). Just a suggestion, I really do love your game. Keep up the good work!
Never received my in app purchase
by MobiusB117 on 2019/07/01 12:56
So recently I had some special offers that when attempting to claim would say claim before lvl xx. Well I never got my ships nor any upgraded parts. I recently contacted support and they said they are testing/working on a fix that would fix this issues. So then an offer popped up, a 1 time offer, which if you go off the screen will never come back. The offer was the $9.99 Therion battleship with 400 Celestium. After completing the transaction the game said to reload and after reloading I did not get the ship not the Celestium. My bank was charged and apple transaction history shows the transaction was made. I have yet to hear from them. Don’t get me wrong the game is fun but having issues prior was ok but dealing with issues with micro transaction now is shining a different kind of light that I am worried.
Interesting idea, but short lived
by Pops55650 on 2018/02/05 21:05
I don’t care for the fact that my smaller ships are now being matched against stronger ships because of my ranking. Since i don't even fly the ship, my ranking has no effect on making my ship better. Also, newer/ more advanced upgrades take ip more grid space, which really limits your smaller shops to the point of being obsolete. I get a bigger ship will be more powerful, but it would be cool to surprise the bigger ships once and awhile. Finally, when it comes to the music.. i only have the option to turn the sounds completely off. Most of not all games let you turn just the music off and leave the sound effects on. There is only so long i can stand that 90’s techno.
Entertaining
by Recommending on 2018/02/01 17:43
I enjoy this game a lot but feel it could use a couple changes. 1. Remove Destroyer Vega from the game or add it to the shop to buy with in game currency. Seriously this ship is broken. It overpowers just about everything. 2. Add a test battle that doesn’t award anything but if you are defeated you don’t have to wait 30 minutes to try again. It makes shipbuilding really hard in its current state. 3. Programmable support ships. The support vessels are really inconsistent in their flying. They either speed in and die or hang back and do some serious damage. Sometimes they just fly off screen and are almost never seen again. It would be great if I could give them a set of orders that they would follow, like hide behind the main ship, flank the other ship, rush in and absorb fire, etc. 4. A recording of defensive battles would be nice. I don’t believe this is in the game yet and it would make a great addition to see how my ships were destroyed on defense and would be another option to help with ship building. 5. It’s a fun game and I enjoy playing it a lot!
Uses more battery than any other app...
by audio_boy on 2018/04/25 23:47
...because I can't stop playing it. Whatever algorithms are determining the effectiveness of different ship designs is subtle and complex. Often, the experience of being "stuck" when trying to advance can be alleviated by engineering a better build using the same ships & tech already at your disposal. Screenshot your good builds though! No save & restore yet. It's important to note why I said "yet"- the devs of this game are super involved, listen to player feedback, and respond promptly. If you get into this game, check out the subreddit /r/SpaceArena, the devs are active on there, and engage in really interesting and constructive dialogues with the player community. Thanks devs for your active involvement in this project! I really appreciate it. Quick tip, never buy an Arbiter- the Arbiter is to Space Arena as Nickelback is to music, just awful. Just one request- in the next update, can we rotate through a couple different music tracks? That'd be sweet. Thanks (Nickname Shaunwell)
Unable to go back and review specs
by Rbounds217 on 2018/09/16 04:47
I love this game and give it 5 stars cause it’s super fun. The ability to try different combos of components really gives a huge level of customization without being complicated. I would like to see a way to look at a component’s specs after purchasing with the in game credits. Such as the differences between MK 1,2,3. Another concern is that the Vulcan turret MK 3 shows that it uses less power then the previous MKs, but in fact it uses more. There are other MK differences that also do not quite match up with the dot-level that is shown. Other than that, great game!!!
Horrible AI
by Navycane on 2018/02/09 12:36
It’s enormously frustrating to watch your units fly randomly and warp into seemingly useless spots mid fight. Watching your ship shooting missiles up the back of another, only to warp away out in front of them with your own back exposed... what is that? Drone units seem to lack even the most basic common sense and will casually fly front and center of the enemy and sit in the crossfire until they are destroyed a few seconds later... if they are in the fight at all. Many times I’ll watch the drones start the match, close the gap between the ships, then keep on going off the screen and not return. Just really sloppy game mechanics, it’s a fun distraction to play for a while but “strategy” is completely useless and subject to the randomness of the game. Even the most powerful ships fall to vessels several levels lower sometimes... its infuriating.
Fun, but needs balanced
by Ahota_Der_Fuhrer on 2017/12/27 17:23
This game is super fun, don’t get me wrong. That being said, when you read other reciewers taking about how quickly ships become obsolete and how hard it is to actually get new ships, know that these reviewers are spot on. I think this game would benefit greatly from adjustments to the matchmaking process. If they restricted who you would be set up against to the type of ship you were piloting, that would be a huge improvement. This would allow players to have big, capital ships that they enjoyed, while also toying around with smaller fighters or corvettes for fun. Anyway, I enjoy this game a lot, and I think it’s worth a download since it’s free.
Favorite game atm
by Fistofmidgets on 2018/10/24 01:00
I was skeptical when I first downloaded this game - the automatic combat was odd to me, but once I started I realized how much depth this game has. Customization is endless, with dozens of weapons to be unlocked, armor, etc., and developers keep adding modules. Besides all the features of the actual game, there’s the online community. Almost all of my super successful builds have been from joining the Space Arena reddit - where you can find answers to most of your questions, different ship builds, and more. Seriously, I’ve struggled with a lot of ships until I found good designs in the reddit. Great game.
Awesome but eh
by Pro troller on 2017/10/12 13:30
So I do find this game very enjoyable. I’m already level 10 and haven’t had it for awhile. Some of the pros are that it’s not very ptw. They also give you a decent amount of their rl currency by videos, ship designs, and daily quests. Battles are entertaining to watch. I like that there is no human interaction in the battle. However there are some cons which is the reason why I dropped it to four stars. Which I hope the devs fix. When you replace a ship you lose that ship and have to repurchase everything. Not sure if that also includes the mods to the ship but I haven’t tried that yet. Ships get extremely expensive fast and you don’t make that much money. There also isn’t much to do. Bugs: sometimes the item slot at the bottom randomly disappears after you sell your ship design. If I see improvements to the cons then I’ll change my rating. I barely do these but if I do that either means I love that game or hate it. No in between. Thanks.
A “functional” game
by trolloltasms on 2018/10/19 23:12
So I honestly don’t know how many hours I have in the game. I’m lvl 33 and I feel as though the developers have implemented an algorithmic system in place to keep me from moving forward in the game. There are situations where it shows an enemy ship barely had any offense, high shield and high armor, I’ll have a balanced ship, strong ballistics to take down shields and rockets to take down armor. Yet too often the enemy ship has 1 repair system that literally put repairs my damage being done to their ship. Ballistic fire and rockets don’t even register as causing damage, negating the time and effort to fit my ship with the best items you can use. There is no way of knowing exactly what items your opponents ship has. Yet it seems as though if you try to replicate the same ship as your opponent the game will hyper nerf your account to restrict you from progressing because of “luck” according to the loading screens. As an avid player who hops on almost daily, i would have dropped $20 or more if it felt as though I wouldn’t get systematically suppressed by “luck.” 1 * our of 5 because the inconsistencies in the game seem like it is being done algorithmically.
Pay to win broke the game
by Freak1011 on 2018/02/05 13:44
I have to say, this game hooked me pretty hard at first. I truly enjoyed the challenge of mixing and matching loadouts in an attempt to counter different situations. The grind was challenging but when you found a load out that worked, it felt so rewarding! That was before the Destroyer Vega pay-to-win showed up. Since the opportunity showed up to purchase the Destroyer Vega the game has been drug to a halt. If you’re someone who is unwilling or unable to shell out the $15 (dear god, why?) for it, then you’re done. Because everyone else did. I’m grinding through the gold league at level 31 and almost exclusively get eaten alive by Destroyer Vegas. It took the fun out of it. I’ll admit I am still grinding through it, but at this point it’s just to get past this blockade and see if anyone is actually using other ships. This game had a ton of potential, but the pay-to-win is painfully obvious and has sucked any fun there was right out of the game. If the Destroyer Vega is here to stay, then there needs to be some serious balancing around the level 30 mark.

Built in obsolescence
by Mikewalling on 2019/07/15 03:56
Amazing how quickly a vessel becomes less useful, and you need a new one. Update: I stand corrected .Of course the vessels become obsolete. If this was a real life experience, one would need to continue to modify the configuration of a ship in response to an adversary learning how to defeat it. With that in mind, this adds a level of realism. Cheers! Now may we have a certain class of Heavy Cruiser for those of us who love a Captain, a Doctor and a pointy eared, chill first officer. Update; After playing for a long time , once again I believe the game has an intentional
🚨 Scam Alert 🚨
by JV Stickman on 2019/07/14 22:12
It’s shameful and highly disappointing that apple allows this blatant money grab pay to win business model to circulate on there App Store. I’ve played around with it for about a month now I even threw about $30 at it. (I spend plenty of money on games [real games] for my console but once in a while I toss some green at these kinda of games? Simply as a reminder to prove it’s always a mistake. Even after spending $30 you continue to receive prompts to continue spending. One such prompt was for $199... lol in your dreams this app isn’t worth $30 I already wasted on it. And the game isn’t even a game really it’s a ship set up app. Set up your ship and hope the games algorithm lets you win once and a while. Not my idea of a game at all, sorry. I’ve been playing video games since they became a thing, I played PONG when it was new and it had more player control thirty years ago than Space Arena provides today. Just saying. I’m going to keep noodling around with this app thing (I can’t call it a game). How about we call it an “Animated wall paper with a ship setup menu” Yeah that works, at least it’s accurate and honest unlike the dev company that makes it. Don’t believe me? Contact them with an issue. “It might get fixed in one of the future updates” after claiming in the first email response that “it’s a known issue (googled it the issue existed for over a month before my inquiry) and will be fixed in the next update”. They didn't fix the issue. Can something so totally flawed be fix. Time will tell.
Great game!
by Scott random numbers 15222776 on 2019/07/10 00:11
Lots of fun building up credits to buy bigger ships, messing around with weapon configuration etc. Worth the time to try out.
Frustrating
by macricdmitriy on 2019/07/05 18:52
Great game. But then I got to level 12 and can’t play it anymore. I either have to wait to level 18 or wait a number of days till weekly battles are reset. What a nonsense.
Doesnt even load
by ike141 on 2019/07/03 16:47
I downloaded this game and have let it sit multiple times for upwards of half an hour and it wont load past the initial loading screen ive tried deleting and re downloading the game but it just wont work
Never received my in app purchase
by MobiusB117 on 2019/07/01 12:56
So recently I had some special offers that when attempting to claim would say claim before lvl xx. Well I never got my ships nor any upgraded parts. I recently contacted support and they said they are testing/working on a fix that would fix this issues. So then an offer popped up, a 1 time offer, which if you go off the screen will never come back. The offer was the $9.99 Therion battleship with 400 Celestium. After completing the transaction the game said to reload and after reloading I did not get the ship not the Celestium. My bank was charged and apple transaction history shows the transaction was made. I have yet to hear from them. Don’t get me wrong the game is fun but having issues prior was ok but dealing with issues with micro transaction now is shining a different kind of light that I am worried.
Uses some really dirty tactics
by Josawott on 2019/06/28 06:20
I had the game use some quickly switching pop ups to trick me into paying money for something I had no interest in buying. Cost me about 20 bucks, I’m pretty mad for obvious reasons.
I can’t play I downloaded it seeing the reviews but when I go in it will not let me play

Rip off, lazy company, addictive tho.
by mattsanti on 2019/06/21 09:50
Let’s start with addressing the issue of this game ripping off names or designs of other sci fi galaxys like, Star Wars, battlestar galagaca and Star Trek. There is a ship named the viper that looks like the viper in BSG, they have a ship fighter named the “wing” which looks like a x wing from Star Wars, also the “Destroyer Vega” which is a star destroyer. I can go on and on and on. That is petty and I hope they get copyrighted and get sued a lot. Also it’s hard to earn a lot of credits and the amount of credits you earn from winning battles does not increase much when you go up in level. Also I did spend real money on this game and a purchase went wrong where I did not get the item but I was charged for it in my bank account. Lastly I reached out to them on the issue and my email was not responded to. Basicly a big F you thanks for the money in my face. Waste of time and money this game is trash.
Time for a review
by Gay gay as 69 on 2019/06/19 11:45
This game is by far one of the best Strategy/mmo space games on mobile devices with no need to pay money, but that stated it still comes with some very annoying “issues”. The issue that annoys me most is how one sided “warp” drives are. Whoever teleports first will almost always lose the battle, specially if your opponent teleports behind you. The whole battle is based on who teleports first cause the second guy to teleport almost always gets put behind the enemy ship. You basically get stuck in a loop, teleport first behind ur opponent, but he teleports within seconds after putting him behind you instead, repeat that. That basically makes alot of battles luck/rng based unless your opponent has terrible ship design. My second issue with the game is how ships become obsolete after a few levels, besides vega and a few others which you can buy with money, you get offered at level 30 to buy vega for $13.00. Put is you can still earn vega for free, but it is still a very op ship that lasts for awhile. When you win games at level 28, my level, you gain about 30,000 - 40,000 exp per battle. But if you lose you get like 6000 - 8000. This makes losing basically worthless with no handicap. Guess thats the point though, dont lose. And in arena mode if you gain to many battle points at a low level you basically softcap yourself facing high levels. This basically makes you stuck in the game with no way to advance since you will always lose. So to improve the game i would change up warp drives. I also believe maybe making a new match-made activity where you face other ships of the same class and still gain exp but no credits. This allows those players who softcapped themselves to still level up and maybe redeem their account back.
Ads during gameplay
by triton-x on 2019/06/13 18:17
While fighting, ads sometime appear and you can't skip them.
Completely infringes on copyright
by Strider387 on 2019/06/13 00:58
There’s a Star Destroyer, X-Wing, and Millennium Falcon model in this game. Unless you guys have some sort of partnership with the legitimate owners (Disney), I doubt that this is legal.
Please help
by Dominator1003 on 2019/06/10 21:09
The game won’t even load, I’m sure it’s a great game but I can’t get past the herocraft loading screen. I have an iPhone XS
Galaxy Coordinates?
by CelestialTroy on 2019/06/06 15:04
Hey, I’ve been trying to find out how to get more of the Galaxy Coordinate things, but I’ve been having no luck so far. Are they super rare chance with a victory or are we supposed to be getting it with every victory? Even thou I’ve gotten about 30 or so victories since it has been unlocked, no new coordinates.
1 more thing
by Jgjffju on 2019/06/05 21:00
First of all great game but you should be able to rotate your weapons left right and straight.
Great fun game tactical spaceship game
by $$reaper$$ on 2019/06/05 08:32
Simple and complex. Can be expensive but when the ads work it’s a great free game then too. The ads are not showing up anymore.
RELEASE AN UPDATE 😡😡😡😡
by BDaisydoodle on 2019/06/02 00:00
THIS GAME NEEDS UPDATING/ UPDATES REALLY BAD!😡😡😡😡😡
Ships too powerful for their level
by Done law on 2019/06/01 23:37
I really hate it when I am on level four or five and I am against someone who is on one or two and I have a laser and a lot of cannons and they have a chain gun(I can tell)and the round starts. Then I have a shield and they have a slab of steel and I start fighting. He doesn’t take any damage at all and I literally blow up in five seconds. For any people playing if you die and get paired up to someone like that, be CAREFUL(unless of course you’re level thirty or something). I hope you fix it please and other than that I really like the game.👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
Awesome but a few things
by Aren22 on 2019/05/27 18:03
So I started playing and I was instantly hooked but I would love it if you give more sired it’s per battle because it’s hard to get ships and modules on around 7k in my level and I get that the bigger the ship the more credits you get but it’s especially hard to beat bigger ships since I’m a beginner.
Love the game, but.....
by timtomb1969 on 2019/05/27 06:05
It gives me lots of time between fights to play other games...I find that I’m slowly being being drawn to them...losing interest...it was fun for 5 minutes
Fun but too expensive
by MargotD39 on 2019/05/21 23:46
My son likes this game but is disappointed and frustrated by the high cost, both in terms of real currency and in game currency for ships.
Where’s ingot?
by ThAdEa82 on 2019/05/16 03:07
Game running again from apparent server crash. Class battle matchups need serious improvement.
What a epic game
by THAT SHADOW FIGHT PLAYER on 2019/05/15 19:36
This game is epic but I wish you could see fleet battles
It’s pretty good
by Plz add hard ode on 2019/05/10 01:26
This is a good game (although not the best) Most ships are direct upgrades to each other, making little variety. Some of the ships you can buy are stupidly powerful, usually better in every way.
i enjoy this game !
by Louie_111 on 2019/05/08 08:35
lots of fun trying to come up with amazing builds to clone to the top and become the best of the best. building a ship is half the fun and the other half is seeing your ship in action. I’m about to reach master league too ! i love all the ships and weapons in this game. +one thing i would really love to see be added to to the game is 2vs2 where we can play with a friend and simple earn money together (disabled ratings)
Doesn’t work
by Ghtyo on 2019/05/08 03:51
Would be cool to actually play it and find out if it is worth its salt. Endless start screen after about fifty refreshes I am deleting the game.
Why can’t I test out ship designs?
by Thetgggdgju on 2019/05/07 19:22
So this game is fun and all, but the fact that the only way to see if your ship design is good is to fight in the arena. If it’s lacking you’ll have to wait anywhere from 15-35 minutes to try out a new design. That wait time is what kills the game for me.
Just looking for a response from the developer
by Sapient owl on 2019/05/06 02:07
This is a fun and addicting game. I’d recommend anyone try it who’s looking for a good game to past the time. However, I’ve been trying to earn free celestium and every time incomplete a task that provides celestium I never receive it, even after it’s been verified and completed. Do you know why this is? This hasn’t deterred me from playing the game, just wanted to know why the free earnings aren’t working.
Thank you for totally screwing this game up
by Goonbros on 2019/05/04 16:37
Now its all about money I see well I really did like this game even invested 4.99$ but not rich so I can’t compete if you match me against these new Ships all the time so I never get to improve my weapons or shields or generators or anything else Making it more and more difficult for me to defend myself. Thanks again for screwing up this game.
Destroyer Vega still trashes the game
by The true spork on 2019/05/03 15:15
Played alot at the start, then ran into the DV. Managed another level or so but playing is an exercise in futility because of that ship. I keep checking back but there is just no way around it and the devs don't seem to care.
Very fun game...
by Flipmonger on 2019/05/03 03:34
...until it stops working. Spent a few weeks playing this game on breaks from work and life in general. Has kept my interest in progressing through the game, taking a bit longer than those paying for quicker and advanced perks; however, the free route makes it a bit more challenging. To my dismay, I loaded the game today only to be stuck on the Herocraft logo page while listening to the engaging intro loop for a good 10-minutes without any error message or loading time. Either a server is down or this game just simply crashed. Website doesn’t provide server status; therefore, I assume the game has simply crashed. Other games seem to continue to work fine, and power-cycling my iPhone did not remedy this issue. So, my review ends here... a very fun game... until it stops working.
Unexpected(?!?) errors
by explodingreactor on 2019/05/03 01:43
I am seeing tons of unexpected errors lately. I do not know how to solve them, but I ask you to help. Help? Ok: edit. I got it running, but virtually all my rating is gone. Reset to zero. This hasn’t happened before, as when I won, I every once in a while, I lost a rating. But this????? AGHHHHHHHHHHHH!!! I want my 496 or so rating back!!!! I also can’t seem to win credits or exp. 😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭 Another edit: Just 10 minutes after this text I finally got it fixed. But you may want to look into fixing that. I really don’t want that frustrating glitch to happen again
Development issues
by Jupiter806 on 2019/05/03 01:07
I initially contacted the development team about an unbalance in the arena system I wanted helped fixed with.. with the new combat update I’ve won 1/40 battles and I don’t enjoy impossible games to win; and although a solution was set in place between me and the developer I was emailing. I saw no results. Game was GREAT a year ago.
Latest update is a total win!
by KalanVryce on 2019/05/02 14:44
The game started out awesome but the addition of the VEGA just killed it. The new patch has made it playable again. You are actually going up against ships where there is a chance to win! Thank you so much for this update!!
Great game that needs changes
by rainplop on 2019/05/02 02:54
There are a few things that need to be done to make this game far, far more enjoyable, and challenging. Currently, the combat logic is so generic for all ships that it doesn’t really work for any of them very well. 1 Please implement a method to choose the ships behavior in combat. Simple choices related to tactics. This change would allow for many ship designs that would not be possible or would not be effective otherwise. For example, I may want my ship to close in on its opponents and stay close OR I may want to stay far away from my enemy OR I may want to fly past my enemy very fast without stoping. Very importantly, I may want to face my opponent, OR I may want to try to orbit him while never stopping. a. Allow us to choose a side, front, or the rear of our ship to try to keep towards our enemy. b. Allow us to choose a distance to try to maintain from our opponent. c. Allow us to choose how to respond to a ship warping close to us. Stay and fight OR run. Allow us to choose how to act when we warp to an enemy. Hit and run, OR try to stay close to the enemy. 2 Spacefaring races with incredibly sophisticated technology might at some point learn how to ROTATE things. Let us rotate items when placing them. Rotating a weapon would rotate its firing arc. Thanks
Fairly fun for a free game
by AdFortem on 2019/04/30 22:16
This game is great to play when you’ve got a few spare minutes. I love the fact you can keep attacking until your ship is destroyed. I also love that the purchasable currency is fairly easy to earn. Overall good game.
Edit: Things are much better
by waitingforbetterapp on 2019/04/30 16:42
Edit: I woke up this AM and noticed I was able to access the new content, and my ranking was less than 400. Nice move devs. +3 stars. I also saw I can’t use my fighter any longer to artificially reduce my ranking in order to complete dailies, so please ignore that advice below. This is a good game, now. They also restored the matchmaker to pre-patch performance, which was a very good move. I’ve adjusted all my ships to the higher difficulty and now have issues getting the one loss required for my dailies. So many improvements over the game we had yesterday. You’ll have no problems getting into the 400’s and higher with a decent cruiser now. Don’t expect to have access to the new content until you reach carriers at level 37 or higher. The devs raised the requirements to rank 500, and at that rank, you’ll face nothing but decently fit, fully upgraded battleships. Spend some money on credits, ships, and weapons if you want access within the first few months ($500-$600), or grind dailies for much longer. You’ll have to purposefully lose many of your matches to keep your rank artificially low if you don’t want to spend much money. Otherwise, you’ll hit a wall that prevents you from achieving the “three wins in a row” and you won’t even be able to complete your dailies. Keep a fighter in one of your slots for this purpose. If you can hang on long enough, and earn / buy enough credits, you’ll find the class matches are the best part of the game. Just a shame it’s not available sooner. CS is polite, if you can reach them, but devs don’t appear to listen. Save your time. Better to write a review. You’ll need loads of credits just to afford all the ship slots you’ll want to have for the endgame (new content). Keep the best ship from each class as you grind, so you won’t have to buy and upgrade them (credits) a second time after you’re level 37 or higher. Also, try to keep them in order as you advance. There’s no way to rearrange the ships on your carousel once you’ve bought them, and it’s a pain to go from slot 1, to 4, then 7, then back to 2, as you go through the class battles. -3 stars for putting the best part of the game (fair fights) behind a huge grind wall / pay wall
Great game but some problems
by Tankds on 2019/04/30 14:54
This is an awesome game that I love playing, but after this new update I have been stuck fighting the same guy over and over even if I do press new enemy button. I really hope this gets fixed so I can continue upgrading ships.
Pretty good but...
by yungbusto on 2019/04/30 14:53
What happened with class battle? At first it required me to get 150, then it required me to get 200. Immediately after getting 200 it demanded 400? I didn’t even get to do one class battle before it asked me? Why is there even a rank requirement for class battle in the first place?
Best game in the tablet
by sg coco on 2019/04/26 21:38

Celestium offers don’t work
by HønestÅnt on 2019/04/22 02:41
Don’t bother doing the offers for free celestium. I’ve done an offer that requires you to buy something and I’ve done an offer that requires you to complete a survey. Neither work. Not sure why they are in the game.
It surprised me
by Mrsstrobey on 2019/04/21 05:07
Ok, so when I first saw this game it was on an instagram ad that was awful. I decided to check it out anyways, because it still looked somewhat intriguing. Now that I have played a little bit of it, this game is amazing. Just kinda wanted to say this Step up your ad game guys
Good game but needs work
by Rebeccaxlights on 2019/04/20 17:56
I can’t even open the game it only shows the title screen and does not load, even with my WiFi at high bars. Also needs to add Shrek and donkey reproduction
Problems
by mostnebula75 on 2019/04/19 14:09
Every few matches my shields won’t work/pull up and so I get absolutely destroyed. It works after I leave the game and then come back but I have to wait forever until I can fly that ship again. Not worth playing until it gets fixed.👎
Tutorial too long. Make optional
by schtrdgrskskfndjd on 2019/04/19 03:09
Title
It’s decent, but most of the descriptions on ship equipment are misleading
by PyroS369 on 2019/04/18 15:05
I bought the vector thrusters and the description said that it allows a ship to improve its turning speed by surprising amounts, but all I saw was that it made me spin around just as fast as the every other ship and become a sitting duck because of the almost complete lack of forward thrust. The game is a cool idea, but I don’t think giving players the option to waste 30,000 credits on something that claims to be good is a nice idea.
Won’t get pass the opening loading screen

Great App minor glitches
by yoked york on 2019/04/17 15:34
Hi, first off I would like to say that this is one of my favorite games. However; just today I lost all of my progress and I had saved up just under 1000000 and I can’t get it back. Could I get my credits back???
No balance and rating system
by Alllexian on 2019/04/16 17:36
So, sooner or later you will get to that moment when you will be logging once a day just to loose. Cause you will be against ships what way stronger. Kinda irritating when all what you can do, see how player on max lvl with all unlocked weapons and ships kill you. Because system cant find equal enemy. I thought when i had my Cruiser 19 lvl against Battleship lvl 26 - unfair... so it never changes. You will be fighting against higher and stronger enemies and in most of the battles you will loose. So you gonna log in once a day until you just delete this game. I’d would love to suggest - balance. Like make it real. On ship lvl 10 you cant defeat ship lvl 25! Make searching not by the rating but by lvl of ships in hanger. Cause even if you bought premium ship. Your technology still lover. And you basically cant even penetrate armor or shield with your low lvl guns. And enemy ship did one shot with supper rocket lvl 50 and vipe your ship.
Love this game!!
by Viper17837 on 2019/04/15 18:38
This game has in depth strategy elements and a very good variety of weapons that can really make you think about your ship design
Improved
by A big nerdo on 2019/04/15 16:19
After the latest update, the game has solved one the main problems they had before. The problem being that you have no reason to ever use a ship that isn’t your strongest. Now that you can take any ship and battle ships of the same class, you can finally experiment with any ship you want to. Would definitely consider this a huge improvement.
Great Game
by DUnBornlegen(limit of letters) on 2019/04/15 14:55
It’s a great strategic game and here’s a tip use your credits in the begging wisely don’t just buy anything you can afford in so far as it will take a while getting those credits back
New update ruined game
by Doom Blade on 2019/04/15 05:12
I was playing Space arena for a while enjoying the accomplishment of being able to finish the daily goals every day. After the latest update (2.0.13) I get paired against much larger ships that take mine apart in seconds. The update has ruined the game completely.
Great all around.
by HendershotBleak on 2019/04/12 06:47
I played this game a few years ago and got bored and stopped. I recently started playing again and even got back my level 34 account. A day or two later I somehow lost access to the old account. I started emailing customer service and while it took several days they went above and beyond to make things right. They exceeded my expectations. Excellent customer service! The gameplay is very enjoyable and now with the new updates new levels of strategy can be played with. No ship is invincible. I find it very fun to tinker with different weapons and set ups. It can take some time to unlock extra ship slots but it’s totally worth it. You’ll advance pretty quick at first but it slows down later on, which is a good thing. All in all it’s a fun game.
No carry-over on mediocre game

Can’t get support, website always errors
by DJ Mike Zero on 2019/04/07 03:55
Accidentally purchased $49.99 of Celestium. Can’t find a way to get in touch with support to reverse the charge. Tried using your website submission form, it would always have an “internal error”. I need this charge reversed ASAP.
Great Game, But frustrating
by Monkey11111222 on 2019/04/04 23:01
This is a really great game, but it moves too fast for you to enjoy yourself, you can never get good, there is always another person that’s better, and it will pair you up with them. (Also pay to win)
Awesome
by Billyringo on 2019/03/30 22:18
I've had this game for a while and I love it I like the customization that you have on the ships. Great job guys!!!!!
Loving it
by Regnadian on 2019/03/29 12:11
Lot of fun designing your own star fighter and easy to learn
Not bad, but it has a few problems
by Macanfluffy on 2019/03/29 01:16
First of all I’ve been having this problem where my enemies are able to shoot through my armor using lasers, which REALLY hurts my ability to succeed, and some ships are stupidly overpowered, to the point where getting the next 3-5 ships is unnecessary. And if you don’t get that ship, then prepare for a metric ton of pain and sadness. Other than that it’s great.
Space arena
by #1Viper1# on 2019/03/26 16:58
The game is well made, and the game play is good and smooth. The match up could use a little work, as I get through the game I will randomly get the way op ship for my class. Also I think that if you flag out of a fight because there is no chance of wining, the time should be cut in half for waiting for repairs.
Cool game
by A pee fetish game on 2019/03/25 01:21
I’m enjoying the game greatly I don’t feel like I have to buy stuff but I can and so far it seems very well-balanced I’ve only been playing probably about two weeks
Pretty Decent Game
by MaxRPGer on 2019/03/23 19:38
It is a relaxing game IMHO. There is no long list of daily task to complete to get reward. The dev is pretty generous with providing premium currency by watching ads and daily task. Currently I am at level 22. My main ship is still the one that I spent $5 on when I was level 5. It is the PSS Miran which is a level 15 ship. I have been able to fight again level 20 ships and win. I don’t know why I haven’t fought any PSS Miran online at all, I only saw it on offline battles. Here are the reasons that I don’t give it 5 stars: 1. No battle record history or replay. 2. Would be nice to see ships configuration that you have battled online or offline. 3. You can only invite friends from Facebook. Not sure why only Facebook. 4. Allow us to convert Celestium (premium currency) to normal currency will be nice.
Accidental in-app purchase
by FryBender3000 on 2019/03/23 12:22
It is WAY too easy to do an accidental in-app purchase in this game. Unethical!!! Deleted!!!
Wont launch please help!

Needs friends
by ChasingADuck on 2019/03/21 11:56
Need to be able to play against friends but a great game over all
Only one flaw
by Bucking_Fitches on 2019/03/19 02:06
Love the game, even spent a few bucks, the only thing I run into that I dislike is when you’re matched with someone you have to use your special currency which is hard to get if you want to skip to the next opponent and I believe it would be better if you had like 5 or so with a kinda short timed recharge. Just my opinion.
Needs work
by wolf nid on 2019/03/17 19:38
Love the game some of the special ships I have acquired are amazing but my problem is it won’t show you how much xp you need till you level up nor is there a real player profile section just settings....
Nice game could use more options
by Wasr30 on 2019/03/17 15:26
Game play could be improved alot by adding some controls during combat. Would be nice to be able to tell the ship where to target the other ship, or when/ where to jump
Best game ever....
by mom2ELM2 on 2019/03/17 10:12
I really enjoy this game. I'm very happy south of now that the customer support team actually fixed the bug I was having with my daily missions. I will be playing this game for the foreseeable future.
Matchmaking
by mr.othernerd on 2019/03/17 05:05
It’s a really fun game but the match making is sometimes horrendous. Because it so much fun being 65 point thingy(don’t know what it’s called) and versing a 76 point person several time in a row, i wasted 15 or so celestium to be repeatedly matched against the same person, that’s about 4-5 attempts to be matched against someone else, and what a surprise they were ten points ahead of me and I lost, for the 3rd time against them. So devs great game but fix the match making
enjoyable
by Calabrish on 2019/03/17 01:26
Thus is a generally amusing game. Though I found out the the “invite friends” thing is not working. I’ve been inviting my friend and he hasn’t received a notification if the invitation. edit: Could you possibly put in a feature where we can sell our ships? and if the ships have modifications on it we get at least half of the price we spent on that modification. please.
Awesome game, one suggestion
by NovaStorm93 on 2019/03/12 13:13
This game is one of the best free games I have played yet. Ads aren’t excessive, premium currencies are easy to get, and nothing is so expensive or bad that you have to pay to progress. However, when it comes to battling ships, it is kinda obscure where the ships health is. My current theory is that when all weapons are gone, the battle is over. I’d like it if you could make it so there is either a health bar, or a tip that tells you how health is calculated and when defeat is.
Scammed
by Couch Patmos on 2019/03/11 18:25
The game scammed me hardcore, it gave me an offer for a cheap ship for like $17 instead of $37 and so I buy it and I get charged the $37. I am disappointed that this happens, if this isn’t fixed I am gonna make a big deal about this issue.
The game will not start
by Cameron oppenheim on 2019/03/10 18:23
It is not starting and I just downloaded it
Fun and addictive, but...
by あんこ食う人 on 2019/03/06 19:26
I recommend everyone to play this game. It is very entertaining and highly addictive. It is fun watching my ship destroy another ship or vise versa. It’s great that one gets to actually see how the fighting goes and fix their weak spots. I haven’t had problems with the ads either. There aren’t many ads like any other free video game groups, I’m not going to mention any names VooDoo. There are a few problems though. One is that it is very difficult to collect points. After purchasing a new ship, it takes so much time to collect more for the next ship. Another problem is that when the game says that you either won or lost a battle against a person, it doesn’t let you see the actual battle. I recommend adding an option to see the battle. I like to watch the battle go on and then fix my issue on my ship, but it doesn’t let me do that. Other than that, it is amazing. The options are not confusing at all, and no OP ships that I know of so far. I absolutely love the game.
How awesome this app is
by SM&A on 2019/03/06 01:40
You rarely see games where you get to completely build your own thing and use it. I am really enjoying this app.
Wait times are so annoying
by get GOF2 on 2019/03/05 00:13
Great game cool building, then when you loose a battle you have to wait such a long time because repairs please shorten or get rid of repair time.
Too many ads
by KindleAccounte on 2019/03/02 20:02
Game is not all that fun for the number of ads they make me watch
Wow!

Pay to win
by Sophie26773389: on 2019/02/22 20:35
You can win the first few battles, but once past lvl 40 you have to spend real money to win
So you can’t actually play
by motthman on 2019/02/21 23:47
All you do is build a ship you don’t even get to control it. I got this app thinking it was going to be a terratech sort of game but was completely mistaken.
Uggg!!!
by Oceanwaved on 2019/02/21 05:27
It’s ok but IT WONT LET ME PLAY!!!!!! I played on another device and it worked but it won’t work this time. I was a big fan of the game but I can’t play it. I even tried reinstalling it!
Plan carefully
by ms18lm on 2019/02/14 06:33
It is very frustrating when you are trying to buy upgrades for a ship hull plan, and you lose 83 of the premium currency that you earned. In game I did a free download and played a game. I did the requirements, and never received the in game currency.
Decent until lv25
by Centurion041 on 2019/02/12 02:50
When I first got this game, it seemed like a good game. I’d read some reviews about the Destroyer Vega and all that, so I decided to give the game a shot. It was fun when people used many different weapon types; it added an element of chance. Now, at lv27, there’s only two (maybe 3) types of weapons I see used: Mk.II Railguns, Pulse Lasers/Arcfusion (pretty sure on the arcfusion, definitely pulse), and Arsenal wall. No variety, and the Mk.II Railgun needs to be balanced. There needs to be more of a chance element to the game Edit: Found more ridiculously OP weapons and other modules. Shoutout to the Mk. II Sentry Laser. Fires slower than the standard, but deals more damage, uses ZERO power, and GENERATES 25 power. SERIOUSLY?!?! The fact that a module this blatantly unbalanced exists is disturbing to me. Some serious tweaking needs to be done with a lot of the modules. Will just throw in another few unbalanced modules (Based on Black Market descriptions): Scorpion Launcher Mk. II, Flak Rocket Turret Mk. II, Fusion and Hydra Turret Mk. II, and Capital Cannon Mk. II.
Hopefully the destroyer Vega doesn’t wreck me
by PRISON SOAP on 2019/02/10 01:26
The game is honestly really good you’re given a lot of options to fix your ships up but I’m a level 22 so I’ll see how the game goes threw out my leveling up so it might go threw a good path or a bad one but the games good
One of the most underrated games I’ve played so far
by Vermin III on 2019/02/09 08:24
All I can say is give it a try you won’t be disappointed
Need updates
by peanut ninja five on 2019/02/06 23:23
I can’t even play the game it won’t load 👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿
Great, but needs more
by Sutherlan_d on 2019/02/03 12:31
Love the new updates. I’ve been playing for a long time and have every weapon, a full inventory of the best ship, and completed everything. Just wish you had more weapon options, upgrades and new ships. Thanks for a great game!
Quit Working for me
by rr_brockker on 2019/02/01 03:08
I have had this game for a year now and got a new phone so I had to restart. I've had it now for a week and then I would load in. I would open the app but then it would never load. I tried restarting my phone and that didn't help. I've also tried deleting and re-downloading to app too. Is there anything I could do?
Honest developers
by Jake (not really) on 2019/01/31 23:32
One of the very few games out there that aren’t trying to steal your money. This game rarely plays ads and it is not at all pay to win. It’s a bit of a grind but that makes it so buying that new ship is all that better. Very very easy to play you just sit back and watch your ship battle.
Annoying

Stupid

Excellent Game for Mobile, but with some Balancing Issues
by Phantom_38 on 2019/01/19 00:15
Got the game a couple days ago and am very pleased with it. The ship design is very expansive and I’d venture to even say immersive. The grind isn’t too brutal to earn the cash necessary to buy new ships, the weapon types feel unique, the campaign is very nice and a great way to earn cash, the Celestium isn’t like most special currency in mobile games where it is pay to win. However, the balancing in the matchmaking needs tweaking. During the transition phase between Corvette to Frigate I noticed how utterly unfair it was once I reached the endless numbers of Valkyries fighting my Dart or Raven. And before that using the base corvette to slaughter fighters. The disparity in the ships can be off putting, I think that the level should determine matches. A level 1 can only fight other level 1s or level 2s, a level 20 can only fight other level 20s or a level below or higher. The final point is the need for a nerf of lasers, the bypassing shields is pretty garbage and leads to a stupid meta of plastering a ship with lasers and shields and reactors and you can’t lose. If a laser is going through a shield I think the damage has to be lessened. And this is just a little thing but the ability to color the ships would be very nice, would lead to more creativity in the playerbase. And maybe a test area where you can take a ship you lost to and put it against your new ship design without the repairs but you don’t earn cash or experience for winning in this test area
Doesn’t work on IPhone X

Great game with a crappy RNG
by Jester776 on 2019/01/16 20:02
Game is fun and requires no real money to advance and have fun. HOWEVER the RNG for battles is absolute trash. You can go against the same exact enemy with the same exact spec as your previous fight and have totally different outcome. So the missiles miss way too much. I can fire five Vollys of the Max level launcher and only on salvo will hit. All in all a good game with horribly flawed RNG
Very fun
by Comish069 on 2019/01/11 07:24
Very fun game time consuming game Great options with ships The only reason I didn’t give this game five stars is because you can’t control the ship and no clan u can join
Fun game but...
by Brian McDaniel 4753278@ on 2018/02/13 23:59
The destroyer vega literally ruins the game. So for people who are thinking about downloading this game, know this. The game is really fun and competitive, with really no need to spend any money on the game. I did a few times because I really enjoyed playing... until you get to around lvl. 30. Then the game gives you an offer to buy the "Destroyer Vega" for 13$.. if you pass this offer up you won't be given another chance to buy it.. the destroyer vega is extremely over powered for its level. It is a lvl 30 ship that can easily overpower lvl 35 ships... so now that you are about lvl 28 you will only be put up against "destroyer vega" ships for the next 6-7 levels, who crush you, making you have to wait 30 mins between getting crushed again by another destroyer vega, and earning no cash or experience between battles... if this gets fixed I will continue playing but until then I'm stuck at this impassable destroyer vega plague that ruined the game! UPDATE: hey guys! Sorry I was a little heated when I made this review (after losing to the vega many times in a row). Yes! I think the game seems to be matching up a lot better now! I think this problem is fixed and I would strongly recommend this game to anyone! Please add more cool ships and features soon:)
Still needs work but a decent game
by Jcheshire85 on 2018/08/02 12:00
So this started out as a good game. I noticed some small sync glitches at first, but now that I’ve paid for a few things it’s getting worse. I bought a unique ship (the Federation Pirate Ship) for $15 and when I bought another ship (Morningstar) even though I had it replacing a different ship, it deleted my unique ship! And there is no chance to repurchase it. Needless to say I will be filing for a refund and really encourage people not to waste their time and especially their money on this game! Edit* - it took some time but they were able to go back and give me back the ship I lost. The fact that the customer service actually cares enough to email you and help is great! The only reason this doesn’t get more stars is bc as I played through, I noticed that the Fleet Arena matchup system still needs some work. There are times where it matches me against fleets with fighter and corvette level ships (all mine are battleship level) which means even after I wipe out their fleet I get very little experience. Then I have to wait an hour before I can fight again. I would suggest either fixing the matchup system to only fight fleets of your level or shortening the wait time (like if you wipe out a fleet, you only have to wait 10 minutes). But the developers are good at listening to their customers so I encourage anyone to make suggestions.
Great game
by CadeAaronKelly on 2017/12/21 02:44
Unlike a lot of games you don’t have to buy anything to actually play. It’s a lot of fun and getting premium currency isn’t too hard. You can do challengers each day and get like 40 and then watch adds and get like 20 more. Researching new tech isn’t a waiting game, if you have the credits you get it instantly. You can also buy upgraded components for either standard credits or premium currency. The only waiting is after you lose ship to ship PVP or the fleet battle PVP. Strategy is key and placement of components can make a low level ship a match for ships that are way above it in level. There’s a learning curve but once you figure it out it gets a lot easier. I recommend not spending premium currency to upgrade ships till at least level 10. Instead buy more ship yard slots. The upgrades add a few extra slots to different sections. Some extend the front, add a few extra slots near the middle, extend the rear, or add more engine slots. Best mobile game I’ve played!
Enjoyable game but beware..
by Torque2Spec on 2018/02/21 02:24
I really like this game for how simple it is. Ads are not the core of the game witch is nice. You can watch ads if you choose but you are rewarded for doing so with in-game money to help you out and not at a worthless rate, witch is nice. You have plenty of options to fit your ships in a offensive and/or defensive strategy. My only issue is with the Vega. I’m not mad that cost real money. I’m not even mad that it’s $13. When you hit level 30 you are given the option to pick up this absolute over powered beast. I you are willing to spend money (by level 30 you will know if you really like the game) then I guess do it. BECAUSE IF YOU DONT.. prepare for a long painful struggle to level 35. The Vega will show you no mercy. It’s extremely hard to take one out. You are thrown in with Vega’s over 50% of the matches so it’s going to get annoying. Weather that’s all just a ton of people dropping skrilla on a iconic ship that totally lives up to its name, or they just toss this into make you want to buy it more, I don’t know. Seems kinda sketch how many times I have to fight one but that’s just me maybe. I’m level 34 with a Phantom and I’m still getting smoked by Vega’s on a regular basis but not as much as the early 30’s. This is my only gripe with the game or I would give it 5 stars.
Destroyer Vega Destroyed This Game
by AdmiralOrko on 2018/02/07 05:40
I started playing a few months back, and even decided I liked the game enough to make a purchase. Then, as a certain space movie was releasing the devs decided to capitalize on the hype by releasing some ships “heavily inspired” by a certain incredibly popular sci-fi franchise, for real money. Now, I’ll ignore the IP violations and lawsuit your favorite mouse could likely hit this little studio with, and I can even ignore selling a little power for money and giving people who choose to make a purchase a small advantage over free players. Power sells, the devs need to eat. I get it. But one of the ships released is so ungodly powerful it’s stupid. I’m talking it’s a waste to keep playing where I am in the ladder. If I get matched against a Destroyer Vega, I lose. I get 0 exp or currency, and a 20 minutes wait until I can hit the button to get randomly matched with another Destroyer Vega. I can’t complete the dailies, I can’t even get another level to reach the next ship. So, you can’t get the free shop currency at a decent rate, can’t level, and can’t progress unless you’re willing to shell out the cash to progress, and likely the next ship up won’t solve the problem anyways. So, you do what you have left. You delete the game, leave a long winded not good review, and kiss the game goodbye.
Short-lived game unless you spend money
by ForcedNickname on 2017/11/24 00:28
Another reviewer was spot on: ships become obsolete quickly and are too expensive to replace without paying real money. Your ships don’t get matched based on its class. They are matched by your ranking. My level 6 ship just got matched against a level 12 and level 15 in the last two matches I played. My other two ships are level 7 and 10. The level 10 does well sometimes but is quickly becoming average. The game doesn’t reward you with enough credits to buy new ships for each hangar you own or keep up with new tech research, so you end up with fairly useless ships to play with unless your opponent has a horrible design. Add to the fact when you lose a battle there is a repair timer, so depending on your matchmaking luck, you may have a very short play session. I do recommend trying this game though because it is fun to play and test out different ship builds, but due to increasing repair timers and pricey ships and tech as you progress, the game slows down a lot and ultimately won’t stay on the virtual “shelf” for long.
Great all around.
by HendershotBleak on 2019/04/12 06:47
I played this game a few years ago and got bored and stopped. I recently started playing again and even got back my level 34 account. A day or two later I somehow lost access to the old account. I started emailing customer service and while it took several days they went above and beyond to make things right. They exceeded my expectations. Excellent customer service! The gameplay is very enjoyable and now with the new updates new levels of strategy can be played with. No ship is invincible. I find it very fun to tinker with different weapons and set ups. It can take some time to unlock extra ship slots but it’s totally worth it. You’ll advance pretty quick at first but it slows down later on, which is a good thing. All in all it’s a fun game.

Destroyer Vega ruined the gameplay of a very fun, interactive game
by Liladeans on 2018/02/16 22:40
The addition of the Destroyer Vega has ruined this game. I stared this game maybe 2 months ago and loved it. It was fun, interactive, competitive (to a level that was good for a free phone game) and was easy to play. Once I got to the levels where the Destroyer Vega became available, the tide completely changed. I can’t level up, I can’t complete the dailies, I can’t win any battles (even at higher levels than the Destroyer Vegas) and even if I spend Celestium currency to cycle to a different opponent, I get matched up with a Destroyer Vega 10+ times over until I finally give up and fight and lose. This ship should not be out performing ships at higher levels, every single time. It is so overpowered that even with the better ships as better tech, it destroys. There is a level of disparancy that is unfair to players who have chosen NOT to pay money to play and have chosen NOT to pay money for the ship. I’ve seen responses on here from the devs that they’re working on the problem and that it should be fixed. Let me tell you, it is NOT.
Horrible Zero app support
by Zimbob11111111 on 2018/07/27 21:54
Easy to lose all your progress. I did an in app purchase made sure it would replace one of my worst ships instead it replaced my favorite ship. Can’t even contact app support just get an error message. As proof I submit try sending a message in “app support” here is the message I tried to send which only generated an error message... Ok so first I lost all my progress and about $100 of extras and had to start all over. Now I buy a $25 ship ask it to replace my Therion but instead it replaces my favorite ship the Miran I want my Miran back I said nothing about the first progress loss but if you don’t fix this second issue miran in 48 hours let the horrible reviews begin. After a week I got some help. Since no customer service button this review must have got their attention. Got my ship back after second try lost all my upgrades cost me alot to get both ships back to original. So sick of experience don’t even play anymore should delete the app.
Major, Glaring, Flaws.
by SylBlade on 2017/11/27 10:10
Fun enough, simple time killer. But it comes with a few major issues. 1. The Raven ship comes with two Fighters that, well, don’t really fight. My fighters will get in a shot or two and then disappear off into the sunset, flying off the map never to be seen again. Meanwhile the enemies fighters are more than happy to stick around and triple team me. 2. Inconsistency. In one instance (let’s use the Raven again) I begin combat and my two ships fly in immediately. As they begin to fire my ship blasts into the fray, joining in on the damage and usually that just about cripples them. But the very next match my two ships zoom in, and my main just sits there and waits. Doesn’t even so much as budge for about 5 seconds while the enemy takes down both of my fighters then turns on me for a 3v1. If I can’t control my ships at least make them consistent, if not logical. 3. Price jump. Ship X is worth 50k. Ship Y is worth 99k. Ship Z is worth 250k. Where did that come from, and why? I’m about to level into the next bracket of ships anyways, and lord knows I don’t make that much credit per fight. At level 8-9 I’m making about ~7k a pop. And you want me to buy a 250k ship? That is about to become obsolete in the next 10 matches anyways? So by the time I’m ready for the next ship (which is like 300k) I’m not even halfway to ship Z. How does that make any sense to anyone? Glaring issues my friends, make for a painfully average app. At best.
Amaizing
by Zombiebobby on 2017/12/04 05:42
I love this app and I love the many different ships and weapons you can use. It allows you to creat so many different ships for your chosen play style. But my only problem is the time for your ship to repair. Having better and bigger ships means longer repair time. It makes sense of a literal level but in a game I want to be able to fight many ships testing new styles and ways to build my ship with out having to wait half a hour in-between my defeats. It really slows the pace of the game especially when you consider the amount of money and EXP in between ships and levels. I’m not saying a total removal of the repair time but reduce it but a lot for the bigger ships or have a set repair time for each category of ships. That way it’s more reasonable and easier to play for a longer period of time. Other than that criticism i love the game and can’t wait for future update with more ships and utility’s to choose from! Very excited.
Great game!
by Dinubis on 2018/12/06 19:04
I started playing this about 2 years ago. I stopped because it was slanted so heavily towards PTW. I have since come back to it, and found it much more enjoyable. The balance is right, the graphic quality is still good, and the ship customization options are incredible. I also love that combat is automatic. I can start a fight, check my email, come back and do it again. Not a time drain at all! Only one thing keeps this from a 5-star rating. The cost of new ships and tech is very high, and makes it difficult at times to afford newly unlocked options. I recently unlocked a new ship, but likely won't be able to afford it for some time while I build up my cash reserves. The premium currency helps, and it's nice that you get a good amount for free (completing daily bonuses), but getting a bonus of "X" amount of standard currency upon gaining a new level would help. All-in-all, a great game. Keep it up!
Fun, creative, frustrating (Updated)
by Virtual Hero on 2017/12/04 12:06
Pros: 1. It’s fun unlocking tech and designing ships. 2. Combat is quick with nice graphics. Cons: 1. Match making is seriously broken. It looks at what you’ve unlocked, not what you’re using. This routinely leads to unwinable fights. 2. There is no compensation when replace a ship. To add a new ship Hull it must completely replace a given ship in your available ship bays. I get this but the replaced ship simply disappears along with all the resources you’ve put into it. 3. The game is entirely PvP. Even the “campaign” is fighting other players and it too scales up in difficulty faster than your ships requiring time spent farming. 4. “Fleet” battles are a joke. There is no visible fight. Simply a list of 4 teams and a results (i.e., you lost X ships and destroyed Y ships). 5. As I’ve moved into bigger ships I’ve found when the close in they overlap allow weapons to hit areas they shouldn’t be able to. This totally bypasses all defenses. Suggestions: 1. Make the campaign vs. AI and scale more appropriately. 2. Slow down the advancement rate on league ranks. 3. Add a daily combat mission for resources (aside from the existing “fight X times” tasks). 4. Allow the player to choose the ship they will fight with based on the enemy matched. Currently, you select your ship and fight whatever is thrown at you. 5. Totally rework fleet battles. Make the fleet battles one person’s fleet vs one person’s fleet in viewable real time.
No balance and rating system
by Alllexian on 2019/04/16 17:36
So, sooner or later you will get to that moment when you will be logging once a day just to loose. Cause you will be against ships what way stronger. Kinda irritating when all what you can do, see how player on max lvl with all unlocked weapons and ships kill you. Because system cant find equal enemy. I thought when i had my Cruiser 19 lvl against Battleship lvl 26 - unfair... so it never changes. You will be fighting against higher and stronger enemies and in most of the battles you will loose. So you gonna log in once a day until you just delete this game. I’d would love to suggest - balance. Like make it real. On ship lvl 10 you cant defeat ship lvl 25! Make searching not by the rating but by lvl of ships in hanger. Cause even if you bought premium ship. Your technology still lover. And you basically cant even penetrate armor or shield with your low lvl guns. And enemy ship did one shot with supper rocket lvl 50 and vipe your ship.
Bugs and “Vega destroyer”
by Add editing! on 2018/02/20 17:03
First off let’s all clear up that the “Vega destroyer and “ace eagle” are total rip offs from Star Wars. The Vega has ruined the game, but can be gotten around with strong warrior builds. Additionally taking off another star due to bugs, has anyone else ever warped inside a mine or torpedo? Spawned a mine inside another ship? Other than that amazing game. I truly enjoy the strategy involved in designing the perfect ship. Edit: Thanks for the response! I have noticed a decreased amounts of Vegas, which is certainly helping my credit income a ton. I would also like to see some improvements with the fleet battle function, in the coming updates, as currently it is just a trade for credits to xp, not any worthwhile mechanic. Again, great game, and thanks for the feedback! Sector 4 a challenge 4 is broken, I always target the scythe and the warrior smashes me from behind. Set the warrior as the main ship with a scythe as support.
Sad Reality
by Solus Kad on 2017/10/12 10:15
It’s a simple fun game to play a bit here and there, at first. Unfortunately, ships quickly become obsolete, and buying a “cutting edge” one is very expensive. Also, you have to get all you can out of a ship design you love while it’s your best because it will eventually become unplayable. I’ve hit the point where I cannot afford to buy a new ship without failing upward through putting my tiny fighters against opponents cruisers. Loosing brings no rewards, so I am at the mercy of a cruel matchmaker for any gains. The game would be vastly improved if ships were limited to fighting against other ships of their class. This would allow players to progress when the ships they can afford are not equal to their rank and it would encourage players to keep old hulls to continue experimenting with. (I wouldn’t mind buying a few extra ship bays just to keep playing ships I like. Provided there was a reason to.)
Good game but has issues
by Texan28467889 on 2017/12/06 17:34
I enjoyed this game because I found it to be a good way of killing time. Though I dislike that ships in the game can become obsolete as your level increases and the random fights at based on your level not class makes getting money and new ships difficult. I think the game would be better if players had the choice how the random fight are pick, whether it's chosen based on the players level or chosen based on the Players ship class. This way players can buy newer bigger ships but still keep their old favorites. Though with this new update my account lost all its information thus setting me back by months. I'm still on the fence whether I should just quit now or try all over again. I choose to give this game four stars because it did its job keeping me entertained, though the issues I mentioned before are thing the developers should look into.
Unfair
by Tw33k3r2011 on 2018/02/14 23:54
The match up for ships is highly flawed. So the most destructive weapons against armor is rockets yet ships armor can easily deflect or ignore the damage. Even when their shields are down. Yet they can use ballistic weapons which do less damage and some that are decent fire so slow it’s useless can defeat a ship with all rockets. I use a combo of ballistic and rockets to do heavy damage and take down ships yet their just ballistics can defeat me. Game is overall fun and decent but don’t expect to win because the combat system is flawed and really destroys the fun. I have currently lost 15 fights out of 20 with the same build that won 18 in a row. Update: the match making process of who you fight is better. Also the amount of damage ballistics do is better but there is still some unevenness when it comes to rockets. I get they have lots of counters but when they connect I expect them to do more damage and to a larger area than the ballistics.
Great game that needs changes
by rainplop on 2019/05/02 02:54
There are a few things that need to be done to make this game far, far more enjoyable, and challenging. Currently, the combat logic is so generic for all ships that it doesn’t really work for any of them very well. 1 Please implement a method to choose the ships behavior in combat. Simple choices related to tactics. This change would allow for many ship designs that would not be possible or would not be effective otherwise. For example, I may want my ship to close in on its opponents and stay close OR I may want to stay far away from my enemy OR I may want to fly past my enemy very fast without stoping. Very importantly, I may want to face my opponent, OR I may want to try to orbit him while never stopping. a. Allow us to choose a side, front, or the rear of our ship to try to keep towards our enemy. b. Allow us to choose a distance to try to maintain from our opponent. c. Allow us to choose how to respond to a ship warping close to us. Stay and fight OR run. Allow us to choose how to act when we warp to an enemy. Hit and run, OR try to stay close to the enemy. 2 Spacefaring races with incredibly sophisticated technology might at some point learn how to ROTATE things. Let us rotate items when placing them. Rotating a weapon would rotate its firing arc. Thanks
SO FUN developer not at end
by OngoingCoyote71 on 2018/03/11 03:09
I have been playing this game for about 10 hours now and have been having a blast pun intended. There are in app purchases but there is really no need I don’t feel it is pay to win and it does have adds but they are rare to be mandatory by far the best game I have played and for a free game at that I do plan to get some in game purchases to support the developers and because I love this game so much. The developers are active and fixing as many bugs as possible if you are considering the game try it. PS for developers, however when I got the heavy fighter it would not let me battle I uninstalled and reinstalled cause I wanted to give it a chance but this could dissuade new players it may be a glitch or a problem on my phone but I hope you look into it
PSS Miran? No bundle this time? Add forever?
by GamezReveiw3 on 2018/11/22 01:48
I notice that in one your screenshots for the preview of the game showing a picture of the USS Reliant, or what looks to be. I’ve looked through the ship catalog and didn’t see any Reliant - looking vessels. Please, I ask one thing, add the Reliant - looking vessel back in the game without a bundle, it would make lots of the Trekkies that play this game pretty happy to have this ship back, without the need for spending real money. Please also if you do add it back maybe you would add some more star trek stuff in the future. It’s already really good, but star trek ships would make it even better. Other than that, this game is really good and I would recommend it to my friends that like this kind of stuff.
Potential Marred
by Ryan Sanguine on 2017/12/16 03:20
There’s so much to like about this little time waster; do your best to build a ship capable of bringing down other ships. There’s tons of depth to be had, if only that depth wasn’t hidden underneath under frustratingly steep module and chassis costs that come and are made obsolete far too quickly to keep up with, without opening your wallet anyway. The actual combat mechanics are a crap shoot. There is no rhyme or reason to how penetrating weapons actually deal damage to modules behind them, no consistency in how the AI engages opponents or what they aim for, warp drives have no discernible activation behavior, afterburners do... Nothing as far as I’ve seen. Now there’s some blatantly p2w “destroyer” chassis unashamedly borrowed directly from Star Wars that wholly mops the floor with everything and starts showing up in the matchmaking when you are 15 levels below the comparable “legit” hull. This exacerbates the already glaring issues with matchmaking; matches are made according only to arena rank, so you find yourself quickly outclassed after you actually start to win fights and have to start saving over weeks to get a better hull; there is no way to make actual money besides winning fights so your progress gets bottlenecked by luck of the draw over your proficiency as a player. It was cool for the first 10 levels or so, then quickly became markedly grindy, finally coming to a rest at “not fun.”
2338 reviews but I get the same 5 ppl to fight no matter what
by EBin3D on 2018/06/09 16:14
There is obviously a few thousand ppl playing this game or at least there was but as of right now I’m almost a lvl 29 and have fought the same 5 ppl the entire time I’ve been play through multiple different classes it’s just stupid i can fight the same 5 ppl 1000 times in a row best them all and somehow they are still in my league makes absolutely no sense match making is a joke and the pilots are very dumb you can equip all long range weapons and a warp system and your pilot will still try to drive your ship inside the enemy ship letting them bypass your shields to destroy inner weapons basically making your build useless... if you would fix match making and pilot AI maybe give us a setting so we can pick if we want are pilot to focus on close quarters long range or mid range fighting instead of letting it be random luck if they uses the weapons correct or not
Fun for a time BUT......
by newly Annoyed on 2017/12/05 12:17
This game is fun for a while. However, it doesn’t take long before the only way you can compete with even smaller less powerful ships is to purchase upgrades. Unfortunately it becomes impossible to win enough to get these upgrades without resorting to buying several in app purchases. The game is very obviously slanted in such a way that it becomes impossible to win against even ships that by the statistics should have no chance against you. It is dismaying to find yet another game that is very fun but so obviously geared towards forcing you to their in app purchases. I kept track in twenty fights fifteen were against ships at least a class above my own and unbeatable and the remaining five got LUCKY hits that had no business doing the damage they did. Too much coincidence for my tastes.
Some critiquing
by Joe D. Johnson on 2018/01/30 18:06
I noticed the devs responding to reviews so I decided to write some feedback based on what I’ve experienced. Because the game is based on rank rather than ship/weapon level you technically get punished for playing too much by getting taken to a high rank before you have enough money to match the level of ships you’re facing. In my case I have no ships past the corvette level and every enemy I get pitted against is using a frigate. I have no way of getting cash but hoping that my ship focuses the same area enough to break a piece of the enemy to give me a fraction of the victory money. I now am forced to wait for handouts from dailies or the shop in order to scrape by. I do like the ship customization and the strategy and thought that goes into it and even by just allowing your rank to go down when you fail an attack could fix my problems.
Felt like something changed....
by Hinata Huhga on 2018/10/27 05:32
At first - game was enjoyable. U design ships and try to create an advantage by using weapons and armor against potential weaknesses on the opponent. U do not control the ship - all pre-determined simulators u watch. I found with decent design u won 50% of evenly matched battles - 90% where u had the advantage. What u would expect. But in the last few weeks - feels like they changed the simulator algorithm. Now - I win about 10% of even matches and maybe 40% where I should have clear advantage. Feels rigged now - like I am being cheated. Lastly - feel like there is a bug out there somewhere - I like to call it the drunken pilot bug. About every 10-15 matches - my ship... well it flies like the driver is drunk . For the most part the program follows a logic - point the nose of the ship at the enemy... right... but occasional, my pilot turns for unexplained reasons to show its sweet spot to the enemy... and well... I’m dead and I quit playing for a while out of disbelief my ship would just turn sideways all a sudden. I almost just wish they would call it that - ‘ur pilot has been drinking - sorry - bad luck chap’ Game is worth playing if u like design and sim - but just be ready to shake u head in wonder at bad flight algorithms and seemingly random losses to lesser foes.
Rip off, lazy company, addictive tho.
by mattsanti on 2019/06/21 09:50
Let’s start with addressing the issue of this game ripping off names or designs of other sci fi galaxys like, Star Wars, battlestar galagaca and Star Trek. There is a ship named the viper that looks like the viper in BSG, they have a ship fighter named the “wing” which looks like a x wing from Star Wars, also the “Destroyer Vega” which is a star destroyer. I can go on and on and on. That is petty and I hope they get copyrighted and get sued a lot. Also it’s hard to earn a lot of credits and the amount of credits you earn from winning battles does not increase much when you go up in level. Also I did spend real money on this game and a purchase went wrong where I did not get the item but I was charged for it in my bank account. Lastly I reached out to them on the issue and my email was not responded to. Basicly a big F you thanks for the money in my face. Waste of time and money this game is trash.
Obnoxious warp drive
by EnfieldV on 2017/11/08 07:52
I love this game. But if I could change one thing about it it would be to get rid of the warp drive completely. 4 things 1) when two flanker strategy ships engage in combat whoevers warp drive consistently activates second wins because the first ship to jump gains no advantage as his adversary jumps behind him almost immediately. 2) there is no rhyme or reason to the jump sequence. 1 warp drive, 2 or even 3 does not seem to change the frequency or timing of the jump. 3) (probably just bad luck if it's random) concerning when one ship is a flanker and the other is not. the enemy ship consistently jumps to my unarmored flank whereas when I have my flanker it consistently jumps to a neutral position giving me no discernible advantage 4) not concerning the warp drive. Uneven battle pairing. Through level 15 it was very nice and I was consistently matched with the same or similar (1-2 levels) ships. Now that I'm level 23 I have been paired with ships as high as level 27 which I have no hope of beating. Suggestion. For fleet combat instead of having the silly little match up why not allow a matchup between the three ships I own and another players fleet where it would be like one ship on one ship but 3 versus 3.
Great game for a pay-to-win
by Vortimar on 2018/08/01 02:18
It’s a pay-to-win game. If you’re literally made of money - yes you can pay your way through it. I’ve spent $9.99. Not because I really had to but because I’ve been enjoying it so much and felt the dev needs to get paid for their great work. Early on if you build a great ship and don’t use your in-game currency wisely you’ll get to a place where you feel like you can’t advance without shelling out some cash. Solution: use a low level ship to lose a bunch of battles to decrease your tier (lower level ships take less time to repair than higher level ones) then you’ll be able to progress again.
Gets pretty boring once you hit the Vegas
by Artificial Intel on 2018/02/18 05:40
I guess a short while before I started playing, the Vega Destroyer was introduced and everybody got it because it’s really powerful for its class. Once you hit 600 rating it’s almost the only ship you fight for a long time. Until you get the Therion they’re really tough to beat, and even after it’s a long slow crawl to get out of the Vega zone. It’s a shame, because it’s just the kind of game I was waiting to see someone make, and it’s really well scaled and balanced in other respects. UPDATE: the devs are apparently working on the issue. Kudos to them for recognizing it’s an issue and responding to the comments here. On the other hand, at least the last 15 matches for me were all Vegas, so there’s some way to go.
Don’t Bother
by LukeSkyrata on 2018/11/01 01:54
Hi. This game has some great ideas and can be a lot of fun. But it has a number of frankly game-breaking issues that haven’t been fixed since they were introduced in the original release. First off, matchmaking is broken. More often than not I get stuck facing opponents with different tiers of ships, i.e. fighters vs frigates. It is also impossible to keep up with both research and the best ships you’ve unlocked due to limited funding. On top of this, there is an issue when matches run long where a winner is randomly selected, meaning that my 100% health ship lost to a 10% health ship. Add to this the fact that it is possible for opponents to turn around when you’re crushing them and kill you in two seconds. This is not skilled playing, as you do not in fact control your ship. This is broken AI. What with all of this, I’m afraid that this game is goin to give you far more rage than fun. Don’t bother with it.
Was fun while it lasted.
by tha_hof on 2017/12/15 21:50
The game was enjoyable before all of my progress got reset. I got a new phone and all of my old data was erased. My account was linked to Facebook which was supposed to save my data, but it did not. The combat was satisfying to watch and figuring out the best ways to build ships was great fun. The matchmaking system is pretty broken though. You're paired against people of a similar rank, you gain one rank point for winning and lose none after a loss. So instead of staying in a bracket where your ship is competitive you end up losing repetitively. It makes progress to the next tier impossible since your current ship can't keep up with your opponents and you have no way of making money or xp. So without spending loads of money in game you're stuck watching your ship getting blown to pieces by higher tiered ships repeatedly.
Very fun game...
by Flipmonger on 2019/05/03 03:34
...until it stops working. Spent a few weeks playing this game on breaks from work and life in general. Has kept my interest in progressing through the game, taking a bit longer than those paying for quicker and advanced perks; however, the free route makes it a bit more challenging. To my dismay, I loaded the game today only to be stuck on the Herocraft logo page while listening to the engaging intro loop for a good 10-minutes without any error message or loading time. Either a server is down or this game just simply crashed. Website doesn’t provide server status; therefore, I assume the game has simply crashed. Other games seem to continue to work fine, and power-cycling my iPhone did not remedy this issue. So, my review ends here... a very fun game... until it stops working.
Since my last review...
by Mysocialis on 2018/04/03 04:38
...I deleted the app and restarted. Pretty much the whole game is fun up until lvl 50. Lots of stuff to do and experiment with. They did seem to fix the pairing system which is nice. BUT problems they said they’d fix back in October-December are still around, namely: 1) ships still act like they’re piloted by 1st graders rather than as the ship is designed (ie ships with heavy frontal armor don’t attempt to turn toward the enemy, support craft still think they’re either kamikazes or that they’re supposed to run away and explore space, etc). 2) still dealing with the same repair bays you get in lvl 10. Apparently the black market update was the last update to add anything but bug fixes. 3) ships that overlap ignore shields or maybe it’s just a coincidence I get destroyed by ballistic fire nearly every time ships overlap? (Side note, this is another time your pilots turn into idiots. If your opponent has mines your ship WILL hover over theirs). 4) if you’re approaching lvl 50 (around lvl 45 or so) start looking for a new game. The super carriers are fun for a few days, not forever. 5) have multi-ship battles actually show the battle. If showing that many ships is a problem lessen the number of ships someone can play with.
I love the game
by devil dogs here on 2018/01/18 05:56
I truly love the game but i think you should fix the ai and the leveling you gave teir 9 going against ships that are 4 times my level its hard to play and everything if you could possibly fix that one thing i dont mind about anything i said last comments its just I truly love the game but like i said the match making is sorta out of hands making you go against super high levels that are really hard to kill and maybe more different types of weapons would be cool and please increase the number per credits you earn during a battle during a win or a defeat other them that i love the game and im gonna keep playing and also if can i need help with credits my name is mattyy in the game
Destroyer Vega is overplayed
by Hoardian on 2018/04/20 23:30
I bought the Vega, and had a blast with it for a few levels. The problem is, it’s so overplayed it makes the game boring. I’m level 35, with the latest ships, but I simply can’t get away from battling other Vegas. 4 out of every 5 battles. Also, for some quirky reason, I win more battles when I don’t play. I’ll return to the app after a day or so, and have maybe 4 victories and 1 loss...and some nice cash. But when I actually play and battle, 4 losses in a row....consistently. Then I put the game down and do something else because it’s a 30 minutes recharge. Totally fun game...just gotta get past that one blasted Vega.
A suggestion
by Colthorn on 2017/11/29 23:06
I really love this game, I'm a huge fan of building things and watching them fight. One thing that I'd love is that if they could add a button in the settings that allowed me to turn off just the music or just the sound effects. I really enjoy this game's soundtrack, so I do battles and do my homework while listening to the soundtrack, but sometimes the sound effects are a bit distracting. And I also like listening to my music while playing this game, but my music and the game's music collide, so I'd like to only listen to the sound effects (which are AWESOME). Just a suggestion, I really do love your game. Keep up the good work!
Never received my in app purchase
by MobiusB117 on 2019/07/01 12:56
So recently I had some special offers that when attempting to claim would say claim before lvl xx. Well I never got my ships nor any upgraded parts. I recently contacted support and they said they are testing/working on a fix that would fix this issues. So then an offer popped up, a 1 time offer, which if you go off the screen will never come back. The offer was the $9.99 Therion battleship with 400 Celestium. After completing the transaction the game said to reload and after reloading I did not get the ship not the Celestium. My bank was charged and apple transaction history shows the transaction was made. I have yet to hear from them. Don’t get me wrong the game is fun but having issues prior was ok but dealing with issues with micro transaction now is shining a different kind of light that I am worried.
Interesting idea, but short lived
by Pops55650 on 2018/02/05 21:05
I don’t care for the fact that my smaller ships are now being matched against stronger ships because of my ranking. Since i don't even fly the ship, my ranking has no effect on making my ship better. Also, newer/ more advanced upgrades take ip more grid space, which really limits your smaller shops to the point of being obsolete. I get a bigger ship will be more powerful, but it would be cool to surprise the bigger ships once and awhile. Finally, when it comes to the music.. i only have the option to turn the sounds completely off. Most of not all games let you turn just the music off and leave the sound effects on. There is only so long i can stand that 90’s techno.
Entertaining
by Recommending on 2018/02/01 17:43
I enjoy this game a lot but feel it could use a couple changes. 1. Remove Destroyer Vega from the game or add it to the shop to buy with in game currency. Seriously this ship is broken. It overpowers just about everything. 2. Add a test battle that doesn’t award anything but if you are defeated you don’t have to wait 30 minutes to try again. It makes shipbuilding really hard in its current state. 3. Programmable support ships. The support vessels are really inconsistent in their flying. They either speed in and die or hang back and do some serious damage. Sometimes they just fly off screen and are almost never seen again. It would be great if I could give them a set of orders that they would follow, like hide behind the main ship, flank the other ship, rush in and absorb fire, etc. 4. A recording of defensive battles would be nice. I don’t believe this is in the game yet and it would make a great addition to see how my ships were destroyed on defense and would be another option to help with ship building. 5. It’s a fun game and I enjoy playing it a lot!
Uses more battery than any other app...
by audio_boy on 2018/04/25 23:47
...because I can't stop playing it. Whatever algorithms are determining the effectiveness of different ship designs is subtle and complex. Often, the experience of being "stuck" when trying to advance can be alleviated by engineering a better build using the same ships & tech already at your disposal. Screenshot your good builds though! No save & restore yet. It's important to note why I said "yet"- the devs of this game are super involved, listen to player feedback, and respond promptly. If you get into this game, check out the subreddit /r/SpaceArena, the devs are active on there, and engage in really interesting and constructive dialogues with the player community. Thanks devs for your active involvement in this project! I really appreciate it. Quick tip, never buy an Arbiter- the Arbiter is to Space Arena as Nickelback is to music, just awful. Just one request- in the next update, can we rotate through a couple different music tracks? That'd be sweet. Thanks (Nickname Shaunwell)
Unable to go back and review specs
by Rbounds217 on 2018/09/16 04:47
I love this game and give it 5 stars cause it’s super fun. The ability to try different combos of components really gives a huge level of customization without being complicated. I would like to see a way to look at a component’s specs after purchasing with the in game credits. Such as the differences between MK 1,2,3. Another concern is that the Vulcan turret MK 3 shows that it uses less power then the previous MKs, but in fact it uses more. There are other MK differences that also do not quite match up with the dot-level that is shown. Other than that, great game!!!
Horrible AI
by Navycane on 2018/02/09 12:36
It’s enormously frustrating to watch your units fly randomly and warp into seemingly useless spots mid fight. Watching your ship shooting missiles up the back of another, only to warp away out in front of them with your own back exposed... what is that? Drone units seem to lack even the most basic common sense and will casually fly front and center of the enemy and sit in the crossfire until they are destroyed a few seconds later... if they are in the fight at all. Many times I’ll watch the drones start the match, close the gap between the ships, then keep on going off the screen and not return. Just really sloppy game mechanics, it’s a fun distraction to play for a while but “strategy” is completely useless and subject to the randomness of the game. Even the most powerful ships fall to vessels several levels lower sometimes... its infuriating.
Fun, but needs balanced
by Ahota_Der_Fuhrer on 2017/12/27 17:23
This game is super fun, don’t get me wrong. That being said, when you read other reciewers taking about how quickly ships become obsolete and how hard it is to actually get new ships, know that these reviewers are spot on. I think this game would benefit greatly from adjustments to the matchmaking process. If they restricted who you would be set up against to the type of ship you were piloting, that would be a huge improvement. This would allow players to have big, capital ships that they enjoyed, while also toying around with smaller fighters or corvettes for fun. Anyway, I enjoy this game a lot, and I think it’s worth a download since it’s free.
Favorite game atm
by Fistofmidgets on 2018/10/24 01:00
I was skeptical when I first downloaded this game - the automatic combat was odd to me, but once I started I realized how much depth this game has. Customization is endless, with dozens of weapons to be unlocked, armor, etc., and developers keep adding modules. Besides all the features of the actual game, there’s the online community. Almost all of my super successful builds have been from joining the Space Arena reddit - where you can find answers to most of your questions, different ship builds, and more. Seriously, I’ve struggled with a lot of ships until I found good designs in the reddit. Great game.
Awesome but eh
by Pro troller on 2017/10/12 13:30
So I do find this game very enjoyable. I’m already level 10 and haven’t had it for awhile. Some of the pros are that it’s not very ptw. They also give you a decent amount of their rl currency by videos, ship designs, and daily quests. Battles are entertaining to watch. I like that there is no human interaction in the battle. However there are some cons which is the reason why I dropped it to four stars. Which I hope the devs fix. When you replace a ship you lose that ship and have to repurchase everything. Not sure if that also includes the mods to the ship but I haven’t tried that yet. Ships get extremely expensive fast and you don’t make that much money. There also isn’t much to do. Bugs: sometimes the item slot at the bottom randomly disappears after you sell your ship design. If I see improvements to the cons then I’ll change my rating. I barely do these but if I do that either means I love that game or hate it. No in between. Thanks.
A “functional” game
by trolloltasms on 2018/10/19 23:12
So I honestly don’t know how many hours I have in the game. I’m lvl 33 and I feel as though the developers have implemented an algorithmic system in place to keep me from moving forward in the game. There are situations where it shows an enemy ship barely had any offense, high shield and high armor, I’ll have a balanced ship, strong ballistics to take down shields and rockets to take down armor. Yet too often the enemy ship has 1 repair system that literally put repairs my damage being done to their ship. Ballistic fire and rockets don’t even register as causing damage, negating the time and effort to fit my ship with the best items you can use. There is no way of knowing exactly what items your opponents ship has. Yet it seems as though if you try to replicate the same ship as your opponent the game will hyper nerf your account to restrict you from progressing because of “luck” according to the loading screens. As an avid player who hops on almost daily, i would have dropped $20 or more if it felt as though I wouldn’t get systematically suppressed by “luck.” 1 * our of 5 because the inconsistencies in the game seem like it is being done algorithmically.
Pay to win broke the game
by Freak1011 on 2018/02/05 13:44
I have to say, this game hooked me pretty hard at first. I truly enjoyed the challenge of mixing and matching loadouts in an attempt to counter different situations. The grind was challenging but when you found a load out that worked, it felt so rewarding! That was before the Destroyer Vega pay-to-win showed up. Since the opportunity showed up to purchase the Destroyer Vega the game has been drug to a halt. If you’re someone who is unwilling or unable to shell out the $15 (dear god, why?) for it, then you’re done. Because everyone else did. I’m grinding through the gold league at level 31 and almost exclusively get eaten alive by Destroyer Vegas. It took the fun out of it. I’ll admit I am still grinding through it, but at this point it’s just to get past this blockade and see if anyone is actually using other ships. This game had a ton of potential, but the pay-to-win is painfully obvious and has sucked any fun there was right out of the game. If the Destroyer Vega is here to stay, then there needs to be some serious balancing around the level 30 mark.
