Sid Meier’s Starships – comes into its own on a tablet




n Summary
In a sense, Sid Meier’s Starships is a sequel to the end of last year, Sid Meier’s Civilization: Beyond Earth. It plays in the same future setting, all land on a planet you’re not here, but plays the fight place entirely in space. However, Civilization is missing in the title of Starships and that’s not for nothing. It is a game to download for 15 euros for iOS, OS X and Windows, and for that price you can not expect full Civ. Even with the low price in mind, the Windows version of the game is still somewhat disappointing. The game lacks depth and especially variation in the number of different spaceships that you can bet. Moreover, the game graphics disappoint. It comes into its own on a tablet than on a PC.Fans of the game of good old Sid Meier have nothing to complain about in recent years. Firaxis, the studio veteran, is remarkably productive, where one dares to experiment too. Especially on mobile platforms, the experiment is wanted, with games like Haunted Hollow and Sid Meier’s Ace Patrol. The experience Firaxis thereby gain, slowly seeps through to the games to traditional platforms like Windows and OS X. It is clear from Sid Meier’s Starships.In itself Starships a kind of sequel to the end of last year, Sid Meier’s Civilization: Beyond Earth. To put it simply: Starships, Beyond Earth on a larger scale. In Beyond Earth you leave the familiar historically accurate setting and find your salvation in a strange planet, to become the dominant civilization there. In Starships the scale is even greater. Land on a planet is not there anymore; you try to be the boss in the universe, or at least a part of it. The title of the game makes it clear what instruments are taking.

No Civ

Here comes the dues of the mobile games Firaxis into play, because Starships, not only for Windows and OS X will appear but also for iOS, has perhaps more than Ace Patrol Beyond Earth. The setting is borrowed from the game and the graphic style of Beyond Earth, but the gameplay has perhaps more like Ace Patrol. Starships also keeps a little in between a full PC game and a game for tablets. It is extensive, but not as extensive as you’d expect from a Civilization game. That is probably also the reason why – even though the setting is borrowed from Beyond Earth – the Civilization term is not in the title.
