About this game
Content Rating: Everyone10+
Among the Stars is a digital version of the highly acclaimed board game & a 2015 Origins Awards Best Card Game Nominee. Imagine a distant future. A once peaceful galaxy has been torn apart by war. Alien races fight for power and dominance. And then a new threat appears on the horizon, with the potential to wipe them all out. In the face of this new enemy, all races must make peace and unite to survive. You represent one of those races. Your goal is to help build space stations throughout the galaxy, to promote trade among the races, strengthen diplomatic relations and help defeat the new threat you all face. However, your most important task is to make your space station the greatest of them all. Among The Stars will allow you to select locations through card drafting, and use them to build your station, scoring victory points based on their placement. Construction lasts four years, and the alien race with the most points at the end wins.

If it weren’t for Among the Stars’s single-player content, there would be no reason to pick this game up. The multiplayer functionality is weirdly clunky and it’s hard to find any matches to play to completion. As a result, the work that went into bringing Among the Stars to mobile feels unfortunately wasted, unless you’re simply looking for a way to play against AI.
Among the Stars definitely has the potential to be a five-star app, but in its current state, it falls a little short of greatness. Improved enemy AI and a longer and more challenging campaign are both top of my wish list. Adding a few more options would also be appreciated; it would be nice, for instance, to have a compendium of all the different cards. With a tougher solo gaming experience and a steady release of expansions, Cublo could really reach for the stars.
A thematically strong card-based building game that's an awful lot of fun.
