Big News… Astro Emporia

Astro Emporia is a CASUAL turn based randomised trading game where your objective is to make as much money in a limited amount of turns.

Welcome, partner. We will begin your space business with a $4000 loan. Man, the space economy is good.

Gameplay

First, let me say it is necessary to read that tutorial the game gives you. I had to reread it because I wasn’t making a big profit.  You go around a system trading goods between planets to pay off a debt and profit from it.

Why can't I force my gold on you?

Part of the game involves finding out some planets won’t accept what you are trying to sell, which is understandable, but it’s based on their own stock of what they are trying to sell. If they don’t have it, you can’t sell it.

Bugs

I found one bug that I wasn’t able to replicate. I changed the resolution of the game, and the interface didn’t rescale to stay in the window. It didn’t affect anything after a restart, and I, again, couldn’t replicate it.

Overall, I give Astro Emporia a slice of bread rating. I mean it is alright. It’s not a great game, but it’s not a weak title. It’s essentially a twist on Monopoly, not that that’s a bad thing.
