Starscape is a curious fusion of an arcade and a turn-based strategy game. The arcade component is in total domination, but as long as it is not backed by strategic advancements, it tends to become overwhelmingly hard.
The main feature of the game is addictive gameplay. Despite the simple idea ("collect resources to become stronger, but watch your back and take offensive actions to collect intelligence") the gameplay is extremely immersive. The whole stroy takes ~12 hours (or less on low difficulty levels) to complete. The storyline is not bad, but not too bristling with events.
From purely technical point of view, the game mechanics is trivial: the more resources you collect, the more powerful you get; and few things can prevent you from collecting resources. Whenever you save a game, it is always easy to load and avoid any serious danger you get into. It is possible to think of circumstances resulting in 100% death, but I have never encountered such a coincidence in practice. The only thing the enemies can do is substantially delay your advance. SUMMARY:
plot is simple, but intriguing, graphics is nice, strategy is straightforward. But there is something in this game that makes it addictive and immersive. An insight into this game is highly recommended. Slightly overpriced (for a reason).
