    I have a thing for junk spacecraft. Dead space was a favorite. And this fits in its style. If your a space ship person. There is a bit of customization. Build your ship to be a terror. A few different ships to shop from. And from what I see. I wide range of weapons to choose to use on your ship. It's a little bit like arc of was. But a lot more easy to understand. So if you like a ship upgrade game. But don't want to take a class to use the app. This one is perfect. Ads only to get a better win results. Overall an amazing app. Full Review

    Needed: Someway to send a message to game master. Would have given more stars but I can't seem to get a stunner over level 5. I have one lv 7 and the rest lv 5. I have well over 100 systems of all kinds. I would trade them all for 1 level 10 stunner. I've watch countless videos and bought creates. Haven't even seen one on the drops that you could have bought. Full Review

    Do you enjoy watching ads just to get your post battle reward? Do you enjoy having to use premium currency to get you post battle reward? Do you enjoy getting nothing to progress, having to wait for energy and repairs and playing games that do not have finished story line or ending? If so, you should play this disgusting joke. Otherwise stay far away. The concept is good, the execution is horrid. Full Review

    I'd give it five stars but the stupid PvP system puts you up against higher level ships ALL the time that have twice your health and damage... it takes a miracle to win... then they ding you for not winning. Herald the battles are against people with higher level ships. I have multiple shop levels and all of them have you fight higher levels. Wish I could figure out how to fight lower levels but I never get to. Full Review

    Very good, nearly five stars in my book. Does use up some data steam with those ads. You'll need some RAM memory for this one, the software's pretty large. Has a few software glitches here and there, it could run more smoothly. Great graphics and UI. Full Review

    The game was not like I expected it as to be like riding on a ship and going on forever in lonely planet and encountering good and ships . A real time battle one on one. In this game, riding is like you are not enjoying the ride and it's situation but you are running towards gathering more money. You got the point. Full Review

    PVP is way too lopsided. One victory is ALWAYS followed by a dozen defeats. Make the matchups closer together instead of 20 points apart. Players should be able to get upgrade materials from missions, not only PVP. Systems should drop more often. Full Review

    Bugs and Issues: Sturgeon superpower has short working time and is' t worth the lost hp. Randomization of the superpower isn't fun, it's annoying, interfering with your strategy. Game becomes random clicking rather than solid strategy. New ships is an awesome addition. Thanks. Ace loot now is way overpriced. Full Review

    Everyone should know this game is not finished. As in, the main storyline is not finished, and there is no promise it will be. They don't tell you that before you spend money in the game. It has a cool aesthetic that is very obviously influenced by Firefly. But the gameplay is repetitive, enemies don't scale to player level, and there is no decent story. Full Review

    Overall its a decent ROCK/PAPER/SIXXORZ Game but with a nice addition of modifiers such as weapon levels & rarity. Ubisoft does a decent job on mobile graphics and this is no exception. The game so far seems pretty well balanced even if you don't want to actually pay out any micro trans, but at sub $5 for a decent amount of currency it isn't hard to see why people would click that old "skip-a-day" button. Overall I think the game is fairly good at least in the first hour of gameplay, and the missions are plentiful, the ADs are not invasive as they are used only to buff how much loot you get... example it will double your loot on a pve kill or pvp arena win. ...and Remember, GAME ON!

    I love this game. Great game, nice graphics, fresh concept and gameplay. But please add more variations of quests in the tavern, the quests (destroy this, destroy that, go here, go there) are boring. And please add more ship, more properties on the ship, more and cheaper visual customization, and more gameplay so that we have more thing to do in this game. The point is, just add more features to keep us play and not get bored. Full Review

    What a cheat! Each boss is a higher level tank! Game tactics like bringing on weaponry the players don't have uneven league matches. It would be a great game if it didn't play like a hack job. ship 143...... The game says this ship of 187 was my match..........i guess i have to muck about to beat the level 5 everything the game jams up on me at level 4.........with its shield target blocking and other weapons i have never seen Full Review

    Andrew Waldroup Published date: January 9, 2017

    Games good, but clearly has issues I actually like this game and it's got a solid concept going for it. The reason I'm rating it so low, is it ask you if you want to watch an ad to have your ship repaired with out waiting or spending resources or to get an extra combat reward, which is fine except the game won't load the ads consistently. I'm not sure if this is an issue with there server or on purpose, but I know it's not my connection. I have the same issue wether I'm using wifi or 4G, when other apps work just fine. Full Review

    Seems pretty fun worth trying. Annoying thing is they purposely crash you most of the time after you watch the free repair videos so you have to watch them twice very annoying. Full Review

    Please increase the quality of graphics more and more like play station 4,if possible. Please add vibration mode for more excitement. Please improve visuals and effects to high degrees. Please improve battles, fights,encounters,conflicts,actions,explosions and damages to be more real, exciting and attractive. Please make the game fast and smooth. Give me new versions monthly.

    nice to have a game like this which requires tactics. Fix the issue with Flare's refill. When opposite ship uses Missile system, other one ends refilling Flares for entire match barely getting opportunity to fire back. Full Review

    Xdreame Addi Published date: November 2, 2017

    Too repetitive. I mastered it in two days and it got old. The gecko ship is over powered for a defensive ship. In pvp it almost always puts you up against someone way stronger than you. Of course I beat them anyway, but still a level 7 ship should not be put up against a level 11 ship in any regulated match. Uninstalled, and dropped ratings after it bored me in one weekend.

    Very fun game bravo Ubisoft! Sometimes it doesn't run smoothly on my Samsung S7 which is strange. Also it continues to ask me to connect Google Play profile although I did that already. It says I can change my name on Google Play which is not possible or I don't know how. Full Review

    Another F2P grinder with limited strategical input/decision making. I guess skill in games nowadays no longer a requirement. You just need to pay-to-win. Shame on the "gamers" who spend hundred of dollars in what's P2C (Pay To Cheat) model. Full Review

    The game is fun but it has a problem saving large amounts of progress. I had beat jester, completed about four side missions, completed the first training test, and upgraded my ship now im back to before the jester battle. None of that progress was saved this is extremely frustrating to deal with. Full Review

    i cannot utilize the video reward option. It pops up every time and when i tap on it, i doesn't let me surf the video and claim any reward. It is quite frustrating as i cannot even see claim my rewards which i can have by watching video and hinders my progress in the game. Full Review

    I love the game itself, but every time I watch an add to claim an award it exits me out. It's very annoying and now it's doing it constantly. It may just be my phone but I don't think so. But, if you fix this, I will rate 5-star. Full Review

    Really good concept, however it has very bad server connectivity issues. As already commented the ads take forever to load, the client regularly disconnects and PVP is full of issues with battles hanging or lagging. Full Review

    Lots of hugs, plus faction wars they put you against people much higher than you most of time so hard to get high on leader board. OK game for grinding and basic story line. Unable to change name, stupidly have to use facebook too change your picture. I don't use fb. Like seriously how can the enemy ships repair them selves without a repair drone, that's so wrong.

    One of the best games I've ever played. Only two complaints...well, one complaint, one observation. 1.The cost curve to level your ship beyond 8 is ridiculous. 2. Why in the world is it close to twice the cost to buy ONE system in ace loot after a battle as it is to buy THREE systems via crates? Surely I'm not the only one that has noticed that. Seriously though, epic game, unique as far as I know, and if you are gonna spend money on a game, I'd say this one is worth it. I may even break down and drop a few bucks some day.. Full Review

    That One Pleb Published date: March 18, 2017

    Backround when battling could be improved. Rockets and motar needs a higher energy consumption. The amound of times I had my sand cruiser destroyed is 2 out of 3 times. I also think plasma weapons should be reworked since cannons and missiles can be intercepted by flares. Also Mamba ship should be reworked for balance. It takes energy when going into cloak but it never tells you that. Full Review

    Great game BUT way too sensitive to WiFi strength.... Unless you maintain FULL BARS on your WiFi signal, it chokes and has to restart. For those who play such games in-transit using public WiFi, that's a serious drawback. Bummer. Full Review

    - Broken video ads, they don't play and you lose the rewards or it takes a LOT of time(over 1min) load anything. - Pay wall too evident, if you don't pay, forget about getting good loot.(on the bright side the PvP always helps to farm) Full Review
