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.

"Great game but quickly loses fizzle"

January 25, 2008  |  By b_haferkamp

 |  Version: Space Trader 1.2.2

Pros

This is a great game for about two weeks. When you finally get the hang of making lots of cash it's pretty boring. Just buy, fly to planet giving the best margins, sell. Once I could buy a huge ship and made lots of money, it lost its fizzle.

Great game if you have a commute on public transit.

Cons

Nothing at all. Worked perfectly on my little, old Palm Zire 21.

Pros

This is one of the best games for PALM at all. So do not hesitate to download it.

Cons

It works for PALM only, but there are several ports to different plattforms now. The most famous is the browser game GHO Trader found here: http: / / ghot.chinamauer.de/

"Brings back memories"

October 24, 2007  |  By daddykevin13

 |  Version: Space Trader 1.2.2

Pros

The first game I ever played like this was on an old telnet bulletin board. That game was called Trade Wars 2002. Local users would campaign for months on end, tourney, and so forth. This is a single player version, with limited graphics, but still addictive and fun.

"Very cool trading game."

September 27, 2007  |  By TheLastBoss78

 |  Version: Space Trader 1.2.2

Pros

This game is very open ended and there is a lot of variety in what you can do. For a free mostly-text game, you can't beat that.

There is no great "save the world" storyline, but there are quests you can go on if you look hard enough. The "normal" difficulty is very challenging, so I'd recommend trying it out on Beginner or Easy first.

Cons

The only thing I found annoying was that the menus are sometimes clumsy to work with. But once you get used to it they're not that bad.

"Great Game For The Throne!"

March 28, 2007  |  By Riddlz

 |  Version: Space Trader 1.2.2

Pros

This game is a nice little free game to play when you're bored and have a minute, or an hour, or ... two... :-D to pass the time by. I love strategy games and even though this is not very graphical, the game play itself does pretty well.

Cons

Bigger Galaxy? Another Version?

"Excellent game!"

July 24, 2006  |  By PointDex

 |  Version: Space Trader 1.2.2

Pros

Sure, it doesn't exactly incorporate cutting edge graphics or a highly advanced combat engine, but it'll have you wasting more hours alone with your device than you strictly should be wasting.

Cons

The occasional crash, especially with "special missions", but it's free - that more than makes up for these minor bugs!
