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.

Starband Cool game easy to play if your not used to these sort of games, I had trouble buying the unlock for it but that was an account problem. Will kill hours off without realising

Great 4x 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.

Good game, but...... Excellent addictive game with simple graphics but a solid gameplay if one enjoys trading strategy games. However, it is buggy in spots like once in a while the enemy ships don't appear on the screen and result is game over. Although the game starts off at the last star port with all cargo intact, it does get a bit annoying. Another major grouse that I have which cost this 2 stars is that there is only one mission in the free version and one rumor mission. Worth a try, probably not worth a buy.

didn't like tried this game for 5 minutes. Couldn't figure out how to shoot the enemy ships, even with auto fire on which didn't work.
