    "Huge game considering it's on a mobile phone no less. Reminds me a lot of Mass Effect, or certain parts of it at least. Only thing I don't like is the ads, but I get that the devs need to make some bucks as well. A lot of time and effort go into these projects. Overall well done. I enjoy this game a lot. Cheers."

    "There are quite a few space games around but not many are multi-player. Space Upgrade is and much more. It's a new entry in the Android space game market but it's got great reviews and is fun to play. It's easy to learn as well and anyone can enjoy playing."

    "I love strategy games, war games and space games so VEGA Conflict should be crack for my soul. Really fun gameplay. However, you are going to be in for some very long waits if you are playing for free so the temptation to spend money is always there."

DID YOU KNOW?

Star Command, one of Slant’s best space-themed games for Android faced a bit of a financial problem and was caught up in many delays. Kickstarter, an American corporation that maintains global crowdfunding platform that helps bring life to creative ideas and projects launched a campaign for the game on October 2011. It was a success for it exceeded the initial goal of $20,000 and earned over one thousand contributors that raised $43,000. Developer Jordan Coombs stated that the game’s initial phase was set to be done by December of 2011 but they later announced that the expected release is moved to 2012.

Another Kickstarter campaign was launched to fund the finishing of the mobile version of the game and create a PC and Macintosh version. Fans of the game were confused and angry with the fact that developers are asking for more money when the promised original version hasn’t been finished and released yet. The developers apologized for the delay and on May 2, 2013, the game was finally released. The game was made as a cross between Star Trek and Game Dev Story, a simulation video game. Players are members of Star Command which aims to protect human race and explore the universe.

    "I want to build and fly my own space shuttle. Thinking back to my child hood and being so into NASA and learning about space shuttles, I've always wanted a fun space shuttle game. Today as an adult I still find a huge interest in space rockets. I found this game in the Google Play Store called Space Agency. It's a neat little sim that lets me build a space rocket and launch it into space. I like how I can set the trajectory and I get to see it exit the earth. It's a great time killer for me and I spend way more time than I should playing around with all the different settings to see the effects take action."

    "This is a great game but I feel like they need to update things and iron out some of the features such as being able to customize your own ship to your liking. I think the game is great and well-designed, however, and I will definitely be a loyal subscriber to this. I'm not holding my breath however, since the game has not been updated in a couple of years."

    "I believe Space Simulator is the best Space Game for Android for two reasons. The first reason, obviously, is due to the hyper-realistic nature of the game. I truly feel like this is what it would be like to work in space. The second reason is graphics, which are the top of the line in terms of mobile gaming. "

    "The graphic is really good and the gameplay is like EVE Online or Stellaris. And Nova Empire is featured by Google Play in 2018, really a good game. But this game will cost time to play, consider if you want to join."
