What do you do when you’re sitting on a 3 hour flight and you’re too tired to work and reading is out of the question?
I play games. My husband and daughter love playing games on their iPhones and iPad. They have more game apps than anything else! It’s kind of funny, but I never play games while I am sitting around the house, yet the second I sit down in my seat on a flight, I get excited about which game I’ll play to pass the time!
While I was flying to and from Detroit for the North American International Auto Show this past week, I started playing a game called Space Settlers. The Space Settlers app for iOS is an online multi-player Sci-Fi game that features mecha combat and real-time strategies, which is totally new to me. New = exciting!
You can download the Space Settlers app for iOS for free on iTunes. You can’t beat free!
For those of you who are serious about gaming, Space Settlers even offers an offline upgrade, complete with online multi-task upgrade and manufacturing system so that you can continue the gaming experience!
One of the things I most like about the Space Settlers app for iOS is that there is a real back story to the game, so you can really get into it when you’re playing!
The story revolves around the famous scientist Stephen Hawking linking his brain with the most powerful computer in the world in 2012. Being that this contribution to theoretical physics aided in proving that God Particle captured can be dated back to 13 billion years, people around the world have been fascinated with God Particle.
Stephen Hawking predicted that dark energy existed in the form of crystal at the infancy of the universe and named it “Dark Energy Crystal”, which became the most powerful energy source in universe since expeditionary force first carried it from ancient relic to earth. The ancient people in Terra left extraordinary technological remains, and thereafter the First Space Settler Age began.
Pretty cool, right?
The Space Settlers game is really interesting, with dynamic and sharp picture quality that creates an extraordinary visual impact. Space Settlers is also diverse and really easy to play. I have never really played a game like this on my iPhone or iPad and I was able to follow the lead and play along quite easily!
