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.

i enjoid it greatly!

That game was very fun and refreshing, not many other games out there are like this all.
The only thing i didnt like ws that it was so hard to win lagit without playing for long periods of time.....and the fact that it was so hard to make money, other than that it was a kick ass game....good work.

I loved that game, it was sweet! It gets easy when you find a good trade route between 2 plants, i made profits of 2million per trip by the end! Overall it is one of my favorites and I hope you make a sequel or update this game

-it wold be nice if you could have more than 1 ship at once
-more to do on planets
-make the boss harder

Thank You for this Great Game!

What can I say? It's a bad copy of an old game.

Honestly, you either start out with no money but a few guns, or with barely any money, tons of debt, and no guns.

Guns with frequently miss between 20% and 80% of attacks.

Pirates seem to attack you in groups of 5-12 AT THE START OF THE GAME! I mean, you have one low-grade ship and get attacked by a dozen enemies? AND it's near impossible to escape without losing the cargo (which is hard enough to get the money for)?

You can only take out loans up to your current cash reserves, so on the "easy" mode, you cannot get any money without fighting pirates, NO MATTER WHAT. Oh, and the pirates will almost always do so much damage to your ship that the repairs cost almost as much money as you made. AND you will frequently lose one of your 5 starting guns in a battle, and they are extremely expensive to replace.

I don't know how easy the game would be to play after you get established, because it is almost impossible to get to that point.
