Editors' Review

+
In this addictive real-time strategy game set in space, the object is to make money, not war. Even though the goal seems bit mundane, the game keeps you on your toes. We found the game world a bit small, yet we weren't bored. Comparing prices, managing your crew and ship, and making decisions keep you alert every minute. If you don't actively manage your affairs, you quickly will go bankrupt. Although Starship Tycoon uses 2D graphics, they are attractive. If the goal of competing to make the most money in a futuristic environment thrills you, Starship Tycoon is worth a try.

"I'm glad I did not pay money for this game"

October 20, 2011  |  By morlaine

 |  Version: Starship Tycoon 2.29 build 2.4

Pros

If you enjoy games that are reminiscent of the old DOS games you will probably like this game.

Cons

Not on a par with other games that I enjoy.

Summary

I enjoy time management and tycoon type games and from the description I thought this would be a game that I would enjoy. I was going to buy it but the Ebay seller was sold out so I searched on the internet and found where I could try it first. I'm glad that I got to try it before I bought it. It reminded me of the old DOS games that I used to play when I was much, much younger. I wasn't all that keen on them back then and that hasn't changed. But if you enjoy that type of game you will probably like this one. But, personally, it was not for me and I would have been very disappointed if I'd paid money for it.

"Excellent space trading game"

March 16, 2006  |  By brisey2

 |  Version: Starship Tycoon 2.29 build 2.4

Pros

This is a suprisngly addictive game. Its similar to Elite, or privateer or similar games, except you arent buying and selling cargo, but actually running a space travel company. Lots to do, lots of variety, great fun

Cons

Its in 2D, but apart from some little kids who take offence at that, its no problem.
