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.

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).
