Last post on Star War & Star Trek inspired me to write another post on some space games that were sitting in my to review list. They may be not has “Grandiose” has KOTOR or inventive has Star Trek: Trexels but they definitely deserve a look.

Mighty Tactical Shooter: Plan your move

Gradius and tactical space battle meet together in the nicely done indies games Mighty Tactical Shooter. From the game info quote : “Make your way through multiple levels across four distinct themed chapters. Face challenges that wouldn’t be possible in any other type of shooter. Adopt new skills and tactics as the ship repairs, enemies diversify and the plot unfolds. A 2D side scrolling arcade shoot ‘em up, but turn based.” Like they say at the end : It’s about tactics, not reflex. Your move.


It may not have speed of Gradius but fi you want a different take on tactics and story instead of a standard “shoot’em up” will want to definitely give it a try.

Halfway: A Sci-fi Jagged Alliance

An alien force has invaded your spaceship and your crew need to throught the hallway of it to get rid of these nasty alien. That turn-based tactical strategy draw a lot of turn base fight from a old game I’ve played called Jagged Alliance on PC. Each character has its own tactical abilities, so they will all have to attack, defend, move, use items, and reload to stay alive during battles.


Halfway will be heading to tablets later this year after its initial desktop release.

Star Trek vs Star Wars

Two really good game were released on mobile from these franchise, one for each franchise actually. Here a quick review of each game

Star Wars RPG Knights of the Old Republic


You may remember that awesome game on console & pc or you never played it but keep hearing about it from your friend. Star Wars RPG Knights of the Old Republic (KOTOR) was a massive success and received many praises by the critics for it’s innovative game play and immersive story.

“The story takes place approximately 4,000 years before the rise of the Galactic Empire. Former Jedi Darth Malak, a Dark Lord of the Sith and Darth Revan‘s former apprentice, has unleashed a Sith armada against the Republic. Malak’s aggression has left the Jedi scattered and vulnerable; many Jedi Knights have fallen in battle and others have sworn allegiance to Malak and Revan.”


If you liked the original and want a second try or you never played it but would love to hear from it here your chance to play it on iOs.

Star Trek Trexels


If you liked building your death star in Star wars: Tiny Death Star but Star Trek is more your cup of Tea, you are in luck! A mobile game base on the original Star trek series have recently be released on the app store.

You explore planets and complete a series of tasks. These involve laser gun fights, destroying alien machinery, and negotiating with the native species. Some tasks are somewhat repetitive but it’s easily forgotten by the conversations between crew members during these peril-filled story and with the authentic 1960s Star Trek music.
