  1. Disappointing
    by Adam Voss, USA - May 23rd 2018

    A very light strategy game, not really a bad game, just not my thing.

  2. Good turn-based strategy
    by Spiro, Poland - Dec 29th 2017

    If you like turn-based strategy, it's a game for you.
    The game has a lot of potential, but the gameplay is simply: buy improvements - use it - lead the battles. Sometimes it's boring, sometimes relaxing.

  3. Enjoyable casual tactics game
    by Psyringe, Germany - Sep 23rd 2017

    Starships is a casual turn-based tactics game in space. You build and equip your ships and control them in short turn-based battles. It also features a similarly casual strategic layer with different factions fighting for control over star systems, but it's far from the full-fledged empire management of a 4X game - rather, it's just a framework for getting the technologies and resources that you need to build and maintain your fleet.

    The game provides the experience of a strategic space conquest campaign, while keeping the overall complexity fairly low - but still high enough to keep it interesting. As such, I found it pretty enjoyable, though definitely more relaxing than challenging. Balancing seems to be off though (my fighters appeared to be much more powerful than any other type of weapon), and the AI is terrible. Replayability is limited due to the lack of more complex mechanics.
