We are proud to present
Unknown - a 3D space trader game for iPhone and iPad
Unknown is a retro remake for iOS
inspired by the seminal space trader Elite*. For those
Elite is considered to be
one of the most influental computer games ever made. We strive to keep the
retro feel of the original game, however
our version sports several enhancements such as multiplayer, leaderboard
with achievements, buying / changing ships plus more.
If you raise enough money you
can even pilot a 125t cargo ship, not to mention the 750t Anaconda. Or you
may want to use a lighter ship that's faster and more nimble, but with
less cargo space.
How is the game played?
Touch the screen anywhere on a free
area to control the ship. For other functions we use an icon system (that
can be hidden if preferred) for many of the game controls.
As a first for this type of game we
offer 2-4 Multiplayer matches.
Matches integrate seamlessly with
single player mode. If you want to play online simple select Quick Match
to join any ongoing match that is taking players, or you can set up a
Custom match with friends. We leave it up to the players to decide how
they want to play (coop or dogfighting), but we have made it easy to
locate the other players across the galaxies. There is an onboard chat
function should you want to communicate with other players. If you
for some reason become disconnected (or disconnect at will) the game
instantly returns to single player mode so you can continue playing.
two leaderboards: Kills and Cash. Depending on how you play the game
you might want to see how you measure up against other players.
Unknown also features an achievement system with some hidden
achievements -- plus we will be adding more achievements over the time!
