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.

Very good star trader, marketplace works well. Transportation could use an upgrade, but it's tolerable.

Loved Elite so love the idea Like the trading and the story line, but combat really is pants. Would love to give this a 5 but not even close

Great 4x'ish for Android Auto fire in options saves my thumb and sanity. It was actually the ultimate reason I decided to buy the pro unlocker. It was frustrating getting chain killed because I couldn't tap fast enough. So what, I'm old.

Elite The trading part's pretty good, the combat is horrible! (on an S4 anyway)

Classic Space Trader! Great! Less like Elite imho, and more like a very slick version of the classic Space Trader game. The original Space Trader combat system was probably better though, I reckon; it's just really difficult to do a dynamic combat system nicely on a touch screen. The turn based system of the original could allow for more tactical and graphically interesting combat sequences. But a really nice app in all other respects!
