Hi Everyone

Cellphone and Mobile Device Space Sims List

sscadminsscadmin DarkOne
Hey Everyone



Help and populate this list of Space Sims/Space Arcade games for your phone or mobile device. This is still probably a untapped market, but still with so many people with these devices I am sure there is some space sim fans with mobile devices. So help us keep up to date on the latest Space Sim/Space Arcade games.



If you have comments or reviews of some of the games listed in this thread please feel free to post them. Some games are free but some you have to pay for so feedback is always good to read before you spend $$$.



Please post game names and links to games not in this thread: (Games do not have to be all action based, they can be simulation or text based as well as long as they are space trading/combat related)

    DS Line Wars2 for the NDS. A port by the original author. Look on the following page, click on Downloads in left side bar.

    http://dsx86.patrickaalto.com/



    Plays silky smooth on the DS because it is assembly, much smoother than the pc shown in the above clip. Skip to the end of the clip to see combat.

    Dangerous Null Space

    Another space trading game for the I phone,looks like you may be able to walk about on the

    planets.Could not find a site for the game,but the author has posted some details on

    the toucharcade site.



    http://forums.toucharcade.com/showthrea ... adid=49226

    -Living universe where events happen in real time and you have the choice to intervene or not: Follow that mining ship as it warps to the asteroid belt. Then help it fend off a pirate attack, or destroy them both and collect the loot. Or do nothing and watch what happens. Investigate that distress call, and hope it's not a trap... Or do nothing and someone else might beat you to it.

    -Large universe of solar systems connected by stargates

    -Continue to play in the open universe after beating the main quest line or ignore the main quest line altogether

    -Seamless game play: Warp, enter stargates, dock with stations, trade, and undock all without loading screens.

    -Achievements and high score ladders

    If these are Java2ME games, then I think I have a handy J2ME emulator for my PSP lying around :D. Now for the IOS games, I think I will try to get an Ipad.

    Hoping sometime next year I will pick something up, seems like the kids get all the good stuff :)



    I have been watching this (http://www.notionink.in/) personally, think it will be great when it is released. Make sure you glance over the blog a lot of info in there.



    Oh updated the first post with all the latest editions.

    Found out why Darxide EMP wont run, my crappy phone has Symbian version 40 OS. I needed version 60, drat! :evil: Already checked if I could upgrade it and it's a big no, Nokia are evil. Oh, well live and learn I guess.. Still, when I get a new phone I will at least be able to play a proper "Brabian" space game on it.

    I hate how the phone makers come out with so many different versions that if your not a cellphone guru you are lost. Personally they should generally use the same hardware and just use firmware updates to add features the other competitors don't have or OS upgrades.



    I have had bad dealings in the past with the Apple Store and now limit all purchases to necessity. I couldn't even get my money back even though I never downloaded the app? It's not like I bought it played it for a weekend. They had a record that i purchased and never downloaded and still wouldn't return my money. Apple's customer service is not great in my opinion.

    Hi,



    check out the trailer for the upcoming Galaxy on Fire 2 for iPhone/iPad:







    I hope this is not considered as mere adverstisement. Although I am part of the development team I'm a big fan of space sims in general. I've been reading a lot here and thought this is a good time to create an account and participate in the community. :)
