3# Spaceward Ho! - 2012

Review87Score

Travel between planets is via hyperspace (ships cannot encounter each other except at planets), and the time it takes depends on the distance between the origin and the destination on the map, as well as on the speed of the ship in question. Each ship has a ranking in each of five technologies: range (determining how far a ship can fly before refueling), speed (determining how quickly ships reach their destinations and who shoots first in a battle), weapons, shields, and "miniaturization". Higher-tech ships cost more money and metal, with the exception of ships with high "miniaturization" which take far more money but less metal. In addition to spending on supporting colonies, terraforming planets, mining planets, and building ships, players can spend money on technological research.

7# Conquest of Elysium 3 - 2012

Review80Score

Conquest of Elysium 3 (CoE3) is a streamlined turn based fantasy strategy game with a touch of rogue-like and the complex undertones of Illwinter's Dominions series. While CoE3 appears to be a simple game with limited options at first glance, delving further into the game reveals a game of complex decision making and risky endeavors.

8# A Planet of Mine - 2017

Review82Score

Fully adapted for mobile devices, each game is unique thanks to an innovative "stellar system generator" that distributes resources, recruitable species, spawnable biomes, and buildable planets until a complete playground is yours to command. Diverse species offer different advantages for planet development, challenge completion, and constructing civilizations in the game's "Build" mode*. Will you trade with these factions or fight them for control of the entire system?
