Ur-Quan Masters HD for PC and MAC

What we dreamed about 20-some years ago... It's the classic (ported open source) Star Control 2 on a handheld device, perfect for *campers*, so there's not much to say there. On-screen controls cause *much sadness* and couldn't be much worse, which nukes that 5th star. I only recommend playing this if you've got a physical keyboard for your device. If you do, it's darn near perfect.

Perfect port of the sci-fi classic Every detail of this game feels like the original on my old Windows 98 pc. It just looks and sounds x1000 better! Don't understand the technical issues people are having, this plays equally great on my first-gen Nexus 7 and my my brand new LG G4. For *campers* and *silly cows*: The graphics and sound are completely updated, making this look like a current game. Just don't try to use the on-screen controls! They are quite literally the worst controls I've ever used in my life. Bluetooth it, son.

I appreciate the effort to bring this amazing game to Android devices, but the controls are non-responsive to the point of making the game unplayable. I tried both joystick and arrow key configurations, and the ship will simply not go where I tell it to go. Additionally, despite having downloaded the English voice pack, I've got no audible dialogue. So that's a drag. Playing this on a Nexus 7 2nd gen, by the way. Not sure that it matters, really, since the last patch was pushed over a year ago. Might as well consider this a dead project.

Love it might I suggest. Adding the opportunity to choice a precursor starter ship an and easy money if found it hard to fight more then 4 enemies before I have to go back to the station to refuel and recruit been playing since December but had to restart an I have found it quite challenging to enjoy it again but once you acutely get in to it its beyond awesome can't wait to see what the new update

Great game! The classic reborn! This game port is simply amazing. Runs buttery smooth on note 10.1. The controls are awkward at best. However with a simple android gamepad or sixaxis controller this game truly shines! Control mapping is a breeze and very easy to accomplish! Highly recommended!

Good but way too laggy Lags like hell, its like 5 seconds late

Very nice! This game has been my absolute favourite since I first launched fighters in the 90s on my 386. This version brings back all the classic elements from my childhood and adds new shiny hi-res textures to bring the timeless gameplay to a new generation. The only small gripe I have is that I'd like to play with the position and style of the touch screen controls, I loved the old style rotate and thrust method in the original and feel it would be better suited to using arrow buttons rather than the weird steering circle, which, while not game breaking, is a tad confusing. With that small change it'd be a five star for sure!

Love this game Ive always loved this game sense i had it on the 3DO, its a great game, but there are 2 major problems..... as everyone has said, the controls suck, they do, until u get more turning and speed thrusts u want to throw ur phone across the room. The other huge issue is in battle, i get about 3-4 hours in, just getting enough money to start to afford stuff and i get attacked by one of those annoying probes that u have no choice but to fight.....the problem was that i cant run away from it, 2 crew members...no

Wonderful! Touch controls are a little difficult to adapt to, but I suspect that has more to do with the fact that I'm a hamfisted clunk who has to rely on the cyborg to get wetwork done than any actual fault in the sensitivity or practicality of the buttons. HOW you translated multikey kb/mouse input into such a simple, one-handed interface is nothing short of miraculous, so I ain't complaining! Let the Frungy begin.

Awesome with a keyboard. Don't even bother with the on screen controls. As a matter of fact I set mine to "invisible" and "tiny" and then put the game in 4:3 (no stretched out oval shaped planets) so that the controls didn't clutter my view. Really too bad the game won't work with the D-Pad on the Asus Gamepad. I think that might have been the best experience on Android TV. Anyway. Awesome game. I love it. Never actually finished it as a kid. Gonna give it a try now. :)

Control is an absolute joke...insulting in fact This port of star control 2 is a complete let down. I was so excited until I actually played...the controls were invented by a chimpanzee. It makes the game absolutely worthless. Whoever came up with "Click to rotate click to move" ruined this game.

So darn good I didn't even know about this till last week and I am so happy to play this classic again. I've thought about this game all the time since playing it on the 3do and to have a way to play it now is awesome. I use a controller so I can't speak of the touch controls, it's so good with a controller.

REALLY GOOD, WITH SOME RESERVATIONS This is my favourite game ever, ever since the 3DO version over 20 years ago and the Sourceforge OSX version in more recent times. This version for the Nexus 7 is every bit as good, though as some players report, the controls are a bit of a nightmare; it's a shame if players are forced to let Cyborg++ fight battles because of this, especially when it comes to defeating the Samatra. Also, at the Earth station, fuel and crew meters run 1 click at a time, making cashing in on 'robbing' the Druuge difficult!

Perfect... If you could control it My favourite ever game perfectly brought to android only it's impossible to play without a keyboard or controller :-(

great port this game might be difficult to get into if you haven't played anything in the star control or star flight franchise of games. that being said, it's fairly good port game and only problem i've encountered is crash on exit which doesn't seem to cause anything drastic.

THANK YOU!!! After reading the last few reviews, I decided to write my own. I have a Samsung Galaxy S3 and THIS APP RUNS FINE on my phone! THANK YOU for doing this! My friend and I used to play this game literally for 18 hour spans. You truly have brought back the magic! I found in the OPTIONS MENU that if you switch the controls to "CLASSIC", the game plays like it did on a SEGA GENESIS. There is NO LAG WHATSOEVER and you can really control the ships like you were able to on the old handhelds...I have been playing this

Awesome but I wanted to play this on my android TV box but mouse isn't enabled... Please enable mouse and keyboard control.

Star control on tablet fing cool Love that I can play it on my tablet but I really wish there was away to play Project 6014 on my tablet too that's got to be the best mod after HD maybe I can mod it myself I'll have to look into that

Controls are worse than cancer. I hate to to say it, because I love this game, but it's virtually unplayable. Took me about 20 to land on the first planet. Just use arrows. This game want make with joysticks in mind. I'll come back to it if the controls change.

Legendary Gaming One of the best and original games for the PC is here. Complete and absolutely free! Games should be more like this. Compelling story, humor, and has an ending.

Poor design I accidentally pressed the back button after 2 hours of game play and it immediately quit without saving and lost everything.

Awesome! Controls take some getting used to, but overall a great android experience! Just be sure not to alter the keymap.

Woohoo! I'm surprised I've never heard of this game, as I'm an avid retro gamer. This game is amazing and I love it! Nothing better than scavenging the universe for materials to battle a monstrous species. Can't wait to play the fan-made sequel! Great job and many thanks devs! Keep up the great work! Please, PLEASE make back button go to in-game settings menu instead of main menu!! Separate file for autosave would be nice too...

Ur quan masters This app Is poorly controled can't even fire durin battles on my phone uninstalling after just one day

Utter crappy controls With so many great control alternatives other games have shown us, why stick to this style of doing it. To bad because the rest of the overhaul was real good, but unplayable :(

Jus like SC2 for pc...but with better graphics and optional controls...PLEASE make more like this one...thanx :=^),

Favorite PC game as a kid Star Control 2 the best game of all time. And PELYA has done it again, his coding skills are unmatched. Love the HD update. Shofixti is my favorite race in the game and of course the Denari aka the original Hypno-Toad. Thanks for your hard work Dev !

NEW BEHAVIOR DICTATED - PLAY UQM TO COMPLETION Save often. Hitting back or switching apps can lose your progress. Loved it. Got used to on screen controls and I don't think they could have been done better. Ultronomicon wiki guide is very useful.

A legend reborn Oooh, would Ya look at that, just by downloading the game I literally will be playing my life away, thanks!

90's Game!! You have relived my childhood playing this game!!!!!!!! Thank you so much!!!

Love ol school SC2? GET THIS. See title more more info.

The original game controls sucked, but here it sucks even more. Nevermind the fights - use cyborg. But cannot search for the stars? Yeah, just write down all 500 names and coordinates. Too bad, as the game itself is terrific

Sick A classic (port?) Of the ol spaceship games, with no in-app purchases, i gotta say this needs way more downloads

Great port Really good in all regards Except the on screen keyboard needs an extra button to escape battles

Love it. I remember this game, I never beat it and now I can :-). TIP: IF YOU DONT LIKE TO BATTLE, IN GAME- GO TO SETTINGS AND THEN TURN CYBORG ON. IT WILL BATTLE FOR YOU. The ++'s just speed it up.

Important Although very old game,but still cool,made by Fred Ford and Paul Riche III.For those having problems read the description.Also thanks for porting it to android pelya.

Best game ever made Great port and awesome enhancements. Onscreen controls are just fine once you figure out how to use them. Thanks.

Classic! Controls are way sensitive and unintuitive..but still fun to play!

Holy @#$%! This is awesome! And the Windows version ruins great in wine as well! Five stars!

Great The story mode takes a bit of getting used to and the controls take practice, but really fun and great for refining your skills. Love it.
