Most Helpful Reviews
Poorly written, buggy game - The premise of the game is weak. You get a total of 4 tanks of gas. IF and I do mean IF you run into a space encounter and WIN, then you might get the token necessary to get another tank of gas, other wise when you run out of your 4th tan of gas, the game is over. You also have to WIN and second currrency just so you can make real upgrades to you ship. Encounters seem to be soratically randon and are control as they would be in D&D. Documenation is non-existant. Yes, it has a hint system, but if you have a question (why am I not getting more chips so I can upgrade my ship) your are out of luck.

worst game ever - there is nothing to do and it looks like it was made 12 years ago you should feel bad
Needs work. - This game has potential, like others have said you can't upgrade your ship before you run out of fuel tanks. I will check this game out again after the next update.
