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.

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!

Happy A gem from my childhood. Very pleased it's back and can go with me wherever I go. Ideal for long plane trips.

Perfect adaptation on a phone. Game is exactly as I remember it 23 years ago. Love it! But doesn't let me name a star when I win. That is the only bug I've found.

Newest update Horrific. All the text is now enormous. The left-hand status column now takes up 1/3 of the screen. Additionally, the window you open up to reassign ships from fleet to fleet is now larger than the tablet screen itself, so there is no way to close it. Lastly, when constructing ships, the new window has only enough space to see one model of ship, instead of the 3 of the old version. I want the old version back. UPDATE: version 1.2.9 has no real changes - now uninstalled.
