Starband Space Trading Game

Starband Space Trading Game


Starband is a space exploration and trading game based on the classic 1984 computer space game 'Elite'.

The goal, apart from survival, is to amass as much money as possible, fit out your ship to the highest specs, and make it to Elite status.

Travel the galaxy stamping out pirates, become a peaceful trader avoiding trouble, or become a notorious dealer in illegal goods. The choice is yours.

Starband provides literally hours upon hours of gameplay. Containing over 60 planets for you to traverse across 6 galactic sectors, 12 different upgrades for your ship, 8 different add-ons, lots of discoverable encounters, loads of enemies, and a ton of randomly generated missions. There are 5 categories of enemy ships (some are passive unless provoked) and combat is in real-time.

Watch your legal status! If you start breaking the law, police will be on the lookout for you.

You can view the game guide here: http://starbandguide.blogspot.co.uk (also accessible from within the app).

There are hidden encounters and storylines in each sector, can you find them?

This game is free to play for Sectors 1 and 2. To unlock Sectors 3-6 you need to install the Starband Unlocker App.

App permissions are for the backup/restore function (save/restore game to SDCard).

Feedback/suggestions/bug reports are always welcome. Problem? Let us know. We would love to hear your comments.

Great but... The only problem keeping me from rating this highly is that the system doesn't recognise my kills which means some missions can't be completed. Why's that? Please fix!

Can forgive the basic design But the combat system is terrible

This is impossible There's no control and no way to predict trade

Could have been better. This game is pretty good but could have been better. The lack of a storyline means that it gets boring and repetitive quickly (I know that this game is an homage to the old game Elite which also did not have a story, but still). The space combat is also pretty weak.

Fix and I'll buy full game (would be the only game I ever payed for) Fun it is like elite witch I loved. There are a few things that rune the game though.#1 controls major suck you can't see coz your finger is in the way you it is hard to kill anything when you can't see it coz your finger is covering everything (needs tilt control).#2needs landing and takeoff from space station like elite had you can't even fly in the sector your in after landing only goto New sectors.#3 in sector jump needs disabled if another ship is in the area (like elite) to easy to just avoid everythi
