Huge Star Trek fan here. Played the game for about an hour and controls did me in. It’s almost indecipherable.

Sorry but I have to ask you to clarify what you meant by that. You like the controls?
January 19, 2016 at 9:09 am
No, the control layout and methods are terrible. It’s hard to understand what does what and it’s just a mess.

Ah, okay. Thanks, I got the same impression.
Just one of the issues that the game has, sadly.
The resolution of graphics seems to be broken, there’s aliasing throughout, even on the texts. The IAP’s are outrageous, some glitches here and there, input not registering, and the data download when traveling between destinations.
Such a shame

I’ve enjoyed the game so far, however it does have it’s issues. Not a fan of how much it costs to play, it becomes frustrating at a certain point trying to upgrade the characters and I’m still not sure how the “Fleet” thingy works. I do enjoy collecting the characters however and the away team missions are fun.
