Award Winning Sci Fi Strategy Sequel Available Now!

 

Matrix Games (www.matrixgames.com) is pleased to announce the release of Ape Zone’s (www.apezone.com) Starships Unlimited v3.  Matrix Games published the previous game in the acclaimed space strategy game series under the title Starships Unlimited: Divided Galaxies, which was well received by gamers and the press alike.  Starships Unlimited v3 is now available direct through the Matrix Games Online store.

 

Starships Unlimited v3 is a space exploration, colonization and conquest game where you control every aspect of your expansion across the galaxy. Every ship you construct may be customized from around 200 different technologies. From the weapons to the shields and hull, the decision is yours. The potential designs are unlimited and the number of star systems you have to explore can range from just a few to well over one hundred. Conquer space through might of arms, diplomacy and economy, or maybe a little subterfuge.

 

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said, “Starships Unlimited v3 represents a major improvement in the evolution of the Starships Unlimited series.  Major new features have significantly improved gameplay, game balance and replayability while an improved user interface makes it easy to manage.”

 

Unlike many other games of galactic exploration, conquest, economics and diplomacy, Starships Unlimited v3 focuses on a small number of unique starships, each with different crew mixes and different technologies. These ships and their crews are the heroes of this science fiction epic, boldly exploring the unknown, dealing with alien races and helping your people expand to new worlds.

 

Andrew Ewanchyna, Developer of Starships Unlimited v3, stated, “It’s been a pleasure working with Matrix Games again on a new version of Starships Unlimited.  I look forward to hearing from gamers as they explore the galaxy and discover the addictive and fun gameplay that Starships Unlimited v3 is all about.”

 

Starships Unlimited v3 will be familiar to fans of the original, but with significant improvements. For starters, exploration has been expanded to four ages of exploration rather than one, with planets revealing more of their secrets as your ability to explore them improves. The focus of exploration is now more peaceful and scientific and allows all races to eventually reach new technology ages through exploration and diligent research. Espionage now includes different types of spies and additional missions, while making the process of recruiting and monitoring your spies easier to manage. New technologies abound as well, including new freighter and colony ship types, larger starships, deathray weapons, hyper drive and defensive fighter flak. Finances are now more challenging and based on skilled labor costs and games can now be limited to a range of technological ages.

 

Finally, the user interface and graphics have been revamped and the computer opponents have been made more challenging, including more possible skill level settings so that you can adjust them to your desired difficulty.

 

Explore the stars! Experience the original and epic gameplay of Starships Unlimited v3!

 

Starships Unlimited v3 is now available through the Matrix Games Online store for digital download at US$ 24.99.  Boxed copies will be available next week.  Both the download and boxed versions of Starships Unlimited v3 come with a new fully updated color PDF manual.

 

Simultaneous with this release, sale of Starships Unlimited: Divided Galaxies has been discontinued by Matrix Games to avoid confusion with the new and improved Starships Unlimited v3.

HoW15 - I don't like this, it doesn't work

Friday, June 12, 2015

Imagine catching a flight to a distant city you've never been to. You leave in a rush, no time to read a proper travel guide. Don't know the language either. Don't know the local rules: this trip is going to be a nightmare, for sure. 
 
The airport is your first test. And most airports are pretty good at showing the right information, making good use of symbols, guiding customers through the right paths and making them feel like they are doing the right thing and it's not as hard as they thought just before landing.
