This NG classic has been around for a while, but it was NOT the first user-created NG game as many people seem to think in the reviews. It does have some significance as being the first game to have a front-page icon, but I repeat, was NOT the first NG game.

Thats all I can say. This game is too good for words.

Love this game! Port it to Iphone PLEASE!!!

ok i downloaded a game recently from the iphone which is similar in style to this (i really wanted to play this but i was stuck at work)

Basically i love this game and replay it 1-4 times a year lol. great game love it. but PLEASE port it to the Iphone. The similar game that i played i payed $4 for and it would get blamed from newgrounds in a week or 2. it was depressing. if you were to port it over youd make a ton of money! lol seriously id pay like $10 for it.

(if anyone was wondering what game i downloaded it was Dark Nova.. don't buy it its a waste of money and increadably depressing in comparison)

Review + Walkthrough

Great game. Though I wish there was a way to be able to be lent money other than to start with it, it's a great game. Extremely easy though, which is probably the biggest upset about it. After you get something going, you can get beat the game just like that. But you have to remember that this is back when making Flash actually took time :P Anyway, 10/10 and 5 stars. Great Game.

WALKTHROUGH - Do not read unless you've already tried playing!
OK assuming you started out on easy, set out your ship to somewhere close. Then ship out again, to anywhere. Now keep flying around until you run into a fleet of Unknown Pirates, and only a fleet of 5 of them. Attack them and beat them, and you'll get a little money and you should have maybe 60% damage and $3000ish. Now fly to every colony and find where rare goods rates are lowest. Buy as much as you can, and then fly around and find the place where it's rates are highest, and SELL the goods there.
Now, do this and pay Mr. Kahn when he requests.

Do this until you have about $10,000 (ten thousand dollars) and then find the highest and lowest for Trionium, then repeat the same thing you did with the rare goods, except with trionium and probably different colonies.

Do that and you'll eventually get around $110,000 (One-hundred ten thousand dollars). Then get the Class B freighter and keep shipping trionium. Now, after you get about $600,000 (Six hundred-thousand dollars) buy as many quad cannons as you can and fill your hold with them. Then attack Mein Kahn. You should be able to win.
