Editors' review

This bare-bones Palm strategy game is reminiscent of the old DOS classic Dope Wars. Both have the same basic goal: sell goods at a profit and retire rich and happy. In Space Trader you are an intergalactic merchant buying and selling goods such as robots, ore, weapons, machines, water, and food. You travel among different solar systems from planet to planet, looking for cheap products and high prices for your goods. On your travels you run into pirates and greedy cops looking to steal your cargo. As money comes in from your trading, you can enhance your earning potential by upgrading and adding ships, buying more cargo space, hiring space deckhands, and adding various armaments to your ship. If you get bored with the honest space-trader routine, you also can try your hand as a galactic pirate hijacking other trader's cargo and trading in the illicit drug market. Although this route can be more difficult, it also can prove to be more lucrative. Even with a rather basic look and feel, Space Trader's impressive number of variables manages to keep the game challenging. This, coupled with fact that the game is completely free, makes Space Trader a great game for anyone looking to kill some downtime with a Palm device.
