Another two-dimensional, pixilated masterpiece has progressively surfaced over the last few years. And just when we all thought it would start to drop in popularity it has been gaining lots of attention once more. But definitely, do not let these graphics fool you, this pixilated mobile simulator has so much more to offer than what we have known of game apps before.
Dive deep into the outer reaches of space as the captain on your own custom starship, where you will start to recruit crew members, battle other players in Player vs. Player mode, explore an endless universe, and maintain your entire ship plus all of its regular its functions. We can all finally be the space captains we are in our hearts.
Even the developers are completely addicted to playing this extraordinarily unique new mobile game. Each member of their development team has their own little personally designed 8Bit avatars. So we finally had to know what exactly has caused it to become so addictive for players. For this article, we researched almost everything on Pixel Starships, its creators, their reviews and best player tips to give you the full logistics of their latest creation and all of its sci-fi glory.
What Is Pixel Starships?
Pixel Starships is the epic 8Bit love child of some game developers from SavySoda, who are seriously addicted to strategy games. But they desperately wanted so much more from the games they have always loved so much, but could no longer advance in. With the continued help of their 450+ backers on Kickstarter, they have devised an awesome combination of in-depth spaceship management, character progression, epic space battles, and endless content.
This 2D 8Bit world is the only place you go in this free to play online universe, but your ship never stops moving, exploring, battling, and picking up new crew members. You control every aspect of your starship, the rooms, people, and weapons for blowing up your enemies. You can now forever conquer all the things in the universe and upgrade your stuff with their free-to-play, regularly updated content. With over 200 different characters and seemingly endless gameplay, the developers at SavySoda, wanted to produce a basic universe that did not end once a single player campaign is successfully completed.
They wanted a primary world that is consistent but always offers another new opportunity to all of its players. There is currently no end-date on the development of this game and they plan to continue generating new content for it regularly in the future of this product.
The Different Versions Of Pixel Starships
Version 0.2 is the only available version of Pixel Starships and it is only available for download on iPhone and other iOS devices. You begin your game as a newborn and select your gender. Then you are prompted to choose an appearance for your character, who is now the captain of a starship, and after a brief navigation tutorial, the journey begins. Now you will maintain every one of your ships’ basic functions until you pick up your first recruit and level him/her up.
From here on out you control the entire environment. It operates like any other traditional simulator but with a crazy amount of extra features, customizations, and epic space battles. Other than the Captain of the ship(i.e. you), there are over 200 characters in the game and each one has their own plotline and special abilities. The expansive features are all strategy based and offer the perfect balance of traditional mobile game mechanics and simulating environmental manipulation.
There is also some occasional mention of this game making its way onto PCs via Steam (a 3rd party game launching module.) With how expansive this game is as an app, one can only imagine what it would be like a fully configured computer game. We will have to wait for more funding for them to give us a full PC version of this rad concept. But until then we can all stick to the 0.2 version on iOS and enjoy what we can.

Mastering Pixel Starships
In order for you to conquer the galaxy in Pixel Starships, you first have to master your own environment. Be sure to remain vigilant and always be ready for battle. Find a rhythm and try to keep a fluid ebb and flow with your ships’ production and the crew’s needs. Remember to upgrade and add to your resource storage as soon as possible. When you begin picking up random items from missions besides your ships’ production, you will need a place to put it all. Keeping your crew happy and comfortable is important for reasons that are fairly obvious.
Same with your reactors, they power everything that protects the ship to keep a crew member around at all times. Last but not least, just because you don’t have space for something, does not mean you can’t keep it. Store gained items you do not need to use immediately so you have them when you finally need them for whatever may come up on your journey. But be sure you are really ready to invest time in your ship, your crew, and most of all, yourself. Referring of course to building up a characters' level in other MMORPGs like World of Warcraft.
Level up your crew and their various skills, upgrade ships, rooms, and utilities as soon as you have the option to. Higher level means more efficient work/production. When you get stuck on a mission switch to Player vs. Player game mode and try your luck there instead. Last but certainly not least in this short guide, make it a habit to check and make sure you are finishing all the missions and side quests. Actively doing this makes you money AND gets you resources when you complete your objectives.

With the number of things you can master in such a tiny game, it is fairly clear why people are completely obsessed. With all its great features and the promise of regularly updated content, is truly a large part of what will keep players coming back. Similar games like FalloutShelter, definitely cannot keep up with the expansive number of objectives and features this game offers. Pixel Starships is a new and refreshing, 5-star addition to a vast sea of mobile MMORPG simulators.
Eventually with the help of funding from even more backers on Kickstarter will get this game to be available on both Android and PC for all non-iOS device users that are eager to try it out themselves. If you also love progressive MMORPG simulators and can handle or even maybe appreciate the 2D graphics, this adorable app will provide an endless universe of exploration and creation. We have also given Pixel Starships a 5-star review of our own for its unique concept, level of environmental manipulation, Plater vs. Player & randomly generated battles, character dynamics, and overall gameplay mechanics.
For all of those same reasons, we recommend that you check out this fun and interesting find, Pixel Starships, yourself and start your epic free journey through the galaxy. It will definitely change your view of traditional mobile games that are usually just meaningless rapid screen tapping/clicking or play to win garbage, even stuff that costs you real money. This will truly create a whole new level of mobile gaming that is far more expansive than the concepts we have become accustomed to over the last several years.
