Spaceward Ho!

Spaceward Ho!


***Called "one of my favorite classic Macintosh games" by none other than Wil Wheaton! http://bit.ly/10CIpPK***

Spaceward Ho! is a strategic game of awesome scope. You control the entire military and economy of a spacefaring race. Your goal: explore and colonize the galaxy.

Unfortunately, you are not alone. Alien enemies bent on galactic conquest will oppose your expansion. You fight them by developing new technologies and expanding your empire, or you can ally with them to turn enemies into friends.

Terraform newly discovered worlds or mine their natural resources. Maneuver your starship fleets, both in defense of your own systems and in offensive strikes against the evil aliens. Your strategic decisions will determine the fate of the galaxy.

Based on the original Mac/PC/Palm game and updated for Android.

For new players, read the Help file and also watch the tutorial video online.

Bug report included! Classic game suffers a little in translation One of my favorite games, from way back when. Nothing else matches it's strategic purity and intelligent AIs. It's been auto-ported from iOS to Android and is functional but clumsy. Better than not having it! Bug report: New problem with 5.1.1 on a Samsung S6: the New Game button doesn't work. Uninstalled and reinstalled, no change. It worked previously (was that 5.0?).

My favorite Android game! This game is great! Simple mechanics, deep gameplay, good AI, great replayability. Every few games you win, you get to add a new name of your choosing for the stars! There are still a few bugs after the latest update (on my Samsung Galaxy S3): 1) Battle windows still sometimes appear empty and need to be scrolled down. 2) Sometimes tapping stars doesn't work, consistently, until I first pan the view. 3) The buttons in the "Continue" window are too small. Thanks for contuing to release fixes!
