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.

Started game didn't get anywhere when launched. Spent at least 5 minutes in hyperspace on first launch flyby'ed a ship still nothing happened for a while till I used the back key then went back into game & was immediately attacked & killed just outside the destination, Can you put some sort of indication of direction & distance remaining, Also volume sliders for the various volumes. Can you make an option of loading 3d models into game for spacecraft etc. Are you going to make an upgraded version of gazzillionair too????!!๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

David hosegood This is elite I was elite in original version have a couple of suggestions possibly give option of interactive fight between other players . Hae option of being police as a player. Love that you get fined when you go to court if you have done anything wrong. And really like you can set your skill level .I set mine to hard makes game tougher and more fun . Finally bought game today . Top marks to the developers of this game now back to Geide prime
