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.

To easy.

I dont know why so many people are complaining about this being to hard. It's just to damn easy. You just buy the Trionium from Avalon 12 and sell it at Rakken. You just keep doing this, buy the best ship, get thirty quad-things(the most you can carry) and defeat that green-faced guy. Anyone who finds this hard is pretty stupid.

Great Game

Kickass game, way tough at first but after a while I got the hang of it. You should make it tougher around the end, cuz after you start making money it's so easy. Plus the ending really sucked, other than that, the game rocks and is very addicting!

It took me a while to get to grips with the game. Maybe put some deeper, fuller instrucions. The game istelf is very well programmed. Variables used well and a money system makes it look really advanced. The two options to start with aren't very fair in respect. The easiest is definately the first one as with no gun drones you are forever dumping cargo and loosing large amounts of money.
The bigger fights come with more money but also a lot of slowdown. One of the 40+ battles I waited 5 minutes before I won. Once you get going the game gradually gets easier until it's just about getting that last ship and a million quad cannons. I would definately make that last fight harder. Some of the pirate fights are more challenging than that. If the game included some voice acting in the taverns and for the money lender that would have definately improved the score. Can't wait for Drifter!
