Astro Frontier
On the far side of the galaxy, a new planet has been discovered! Lead an expedition through the depths of space to be the first to colonize the planet. Manage resources and keep your crew happy, assembling your fleet as you build new ships such as the bubbly Manufacturing Ship or the combat-ready Stingers. Speed is key when trying for the high score, but beware of space pirates looking to end your journey once and for all! Blast off on a turn based sci-fi adventure in Astro Frontier!

What is Astro Frontier?
Astro Frontier is a turn based casual resource management simulation that was inspired by the classic Oregon Trail game we enjoyed as kids, as well as Euro-Style Board Games like Agricola and Battlestar Galactica. Astro Frontier, like Oregon Trail, is a game about traveling to a far away destination but with resource balancing mechanics derived from Battlestar Galactica and a scoring system learned from Agricola, all wrapped up and presented as a deep-sea-themed deep-space sci-fi adventure that will have you crossing a vast ocean of stars to make it your destination.

Choose from three different flagships and nine different supporting spaceships to help manage, gather, and sustain your resources to overcome the daily events that stand in your way. Along the way, you just might find your fleet resembling a bubbling aquarium filled with fish more than a deadly armada, just don’t let your guard down because swarms of space pirates are waiting to battle along the way!

What are people saying about Astro Frontier?
“Like Oregon Trail but in outer space. Only slightly less dysentery though.” - a Google User

“Turn based space strategy with elements of rock paper scissors, Homeworld, and FTL.” - a Google User

“Astro Frontier is a game that might appeal to folks feening for Oregon Trail, except that this adventure takes place a few feet higher in the air, and there is much less flux to contend with. Thankfully.” - androidrundown.com  [Overall score: 8.25 out of 10]

Not quite worth the price This is a simple and absolutely decent little game that, while very linear, is modestly entertaining for a time. The markup is simply too high, however.

Good game but..... It's a good game but gets kinda mundane. Can't wait for update or next version

Slightly flawed My biggest issue with the game is the lack of recognition that a small event has occurred. Take for instance, replacing warn parts does nothing for the actual game, just a random event designed to suck out resources, as such this random event can happen multiple times in a row, which breaks it for me. Other than that it's a nice, slow burn and time gobbler. Battles so far are not difficult, but many times the nature of the rock paper scissors just drags them out longer.

Totally Awesome Game! I'll get it 5 stars when the developers add more content...I understand that it's replay value is supposed to come from achieving higher scores, but I'd like to see more content so each playthrough feels more unique. Highscore games are usually shorter or twitch/reaction based. With the length of each playthrough for this title being a little longer than most high score games, there's little to gain from more than 2-3 go-rounds. Hopefully there'll be more to come from this great game and developer soon!
