Star Conflict

1
The game world is very detailed and filled with a lot of cool, interesting locations to explore, although the speed isn’t very fast to begin with.
2
The core of the map is usually where the objectives are located and they offer you some neat challenges along the way.
3
It can take a little while until you take control over the ship, mainly because the tutorial doesn’t do such a good job in this regard.
4
In order to capture the objective you will need to kill all the enemies near it and stay in the vicinity, something that can get quite frustrating and less fun than you would expect!
5
In this image you can see that you can indeed impact or interact with the game world, something that makes the entire experience more interesting and cohesive.
6
Albeit limited, the game world allows you to explore the vastness of space unlike never before!
Star Trek 3

Star Trek: Alien Domain

Star Trek 1
Graphics in this game seem very cartoony most of the time, however the ships are recreated from the movies, which does add a little authenticity to the experience!
Star Trek 2
Planetary travelling is quite slow considering the speed of interstellar ships, but overall the game is more than decent when it comes to staying true to the stories from the movie.
Star Trek 3
The backgrounds for your base aren’t high quality, however the base on its own does look pretty decent, which is great!
Star Trek 4
Building upgrades are necessary, although they can be a little costly and that’s where the pay to win element is coming in.
Star Trek 5
Each building also has specific information and this does come in handy if you want to understand how it works and what it provides for you!
Star Trek 6
When you enter a sector and want to kill an enemy, you should use stealth, otherwise you might end up dying. Focus on the markers all the time if you want to find new missions!

Darkorbit

1
I love a game where I get to choose my leader out of two old men and a hot woman.
2
A fully configurable UI is a lot to ask for, even in AAA titles.
3
Fulscreen 3D at high speeds, without installs or load screens, is really quite impressive.
4
Daily bonuses are a gimmick. I totally don’t log on every day to grab them.
5
A surprisingly robust in-browser launcher is a huge welcome.
6
Combat is just a basic point-and-click, but damn are spaceships and lasers cool.

Empire Universe

1
Main screen hosting your “colony” as you build it
2
Thank you random chat-box guy (MajorJared) for providing what the game did not: an explanation on how to change the language!
3
The colony of Jedas is also the planet Jedas, evidently – all hail Second Earth Jedas!
4
So many resources, so little time.
5
Did not expect to find a quest guide – didn’t even know the game had quests!
6
Double language – let’s play “Guess that word!”
Astro Empires 2

Astro Empires

1
This screen shows your base and allows you to build more structures over time.
2
It takes real-time to build structures so you better have a nice chair to wait it out in.
3
The tutorial teaches new players how to play on a step-by-step basis.
4
It’s possible to join guilds, not that there’s much life in the game right now.
5
There’s a decent amount of planets and solar systems to fight over!
6
Players fight by building up their fleet before battling over planets.
