  • I never thought I would be sitting for over 6 hours Jul 22, 2020

    By Asked_Alexandria
    I this is one of the best games I ever played man thank you for this game🥺 you guys put so much story and badassery it’s just so fun and challenging you build up good stuff and lose it when you die so you go again and each time you never know will this pay out or will my crew and I die? Is machine some sadistic construct to that I’m doomed as well as the crew to do this forever? Have I been at this for 20 years?holy crap it’s been 7 hours ?! Really thank you guys for this game!i never write review you didn’t ask for one but it would been a sin not to it’s so deserving and how clever of a little game this really is! Genius really. Any sci-fi, strategy, etc gamer get this game I just can’t believe how fun it is. I know the devs prob won’t read this but I gotta ask?make me a character? Jk I’m jk no but I am curios the battles feel inspired by the civilization game starships I think it’s called not sure but better, also The going to different worlds like you do I’m away in this game idk why made me feel like a captain in star track but way cooler honestly my guesses were so much better than what I stated and I had a third but I’ve been playing your great game so long I honestly can’t think straight haha ima take a break more like force myself too thanks again guys this game is a gem

    It's FTL, but the strategy stuff is different. It has a long overall gameplay time (playing on hard forces you to actually learn the intricacies of playing well), it's own culture/story, and it's beautiful. You won't regret buying this if you're a real gamer because this is a full game, unlike most mobile games. Edit: Idk if the text scales up with screen size. It was just comfortable on my big screen. Beware of that.

    • Story Engaging (No long wall text) that assault eyes like some games. Very well written, easy to follow.. deep story w/ linear conversation tree mechanic - meant to give you deeper understanding of story, by asking questions. Which you will ! • Onion layers here with the depth of... - Ship Abilities - Officer Abilities - Cool Down Abilities - Rock, Paper & Scissor Mechanics (a classic game mechanic) • Beautiful Art Work (I’m screen capping all over the place) so I can save as wall paper on my iPad Pro 12.9 • Mixture of Turn Based Tactics & Real Time Strategy. Civ 6 -meets- Rome Total War? In regards to mixing these two cadences. • Compelling, mysterious atmosphere. It will pull you. • I’m that one strange person, that could never get into FTL, and I tried. Crying Suns does not have FTL vibes to me. It’s own thing in my eyes. Crying Suns gives me XCOM vibes for whatever reason. I’m still learning this game, about 4 star visits in.. but I had to give this game a 5 star. I’ve been a NON free to play gamer for over 30 years. I know my way around the block - This is a premium gem. My only wish... in the future it receives PVP. I would love to test these tactics & strategies versus human minds!

    One of the best games on the app store, story artstyle and customization is really great, I really like getting good officers for planet expeditions, only complaint is I dont like the combat and would rather something similar to FTL

  • A dark take on FTL, with RTS elements Jun 28, 2020

    By PatrickEverson
    Really love how they make you feel like a starship commander and the storyline so far, and I’ve only finished chapter 1! A few things keep it from being 5 stars. 1. The graphics feel a bit small and are sometimes hard to parse, I can’t imagine this playable on a smaller screen than 11”. Would love some kind of zoom when selecting tiles, even just a little would help a lot. I don’t need to see both ships when I’m telling my drones where to fly for example. 2. Some of the pixel art doesn’t seem to scale down right, like the terrain on surface missions looks like a mess of pixels, I tried the PC demo and they were clear there. Not sure what resolution this is running, but give us a higher resolution level for iPad pros! 2. The controls are mostly well implemented, but I can’t figure out how to cancel ship weapons without restarting their timers, and I’ve accidentally bought things in shops because I swiped too slow since there isn’t a confirm box there. Little things like that are frustrating. Overall though I recommend this game to anyone who enjoys spaceship combat, strategy, or who loved FTL. Can’t wait to play more!

  • Crashing After Boss Fights Jun 30, 2020

    By bowloblau
    I really love this game. However, there are still some serious tech issues; LOTS of crashing. Most egregiously, the app has crashed three times after boss fights. What’s worse is that after it crashes, you have to replay the boss fight. This is extremely aggravating, especially considering how close — and how long — these fights were. Edit: tech support told me they fixed the bug that caused the app to crash after a certain boss fight. So, I updated the app, completed the boss fight for the fourth time, and it crashed at the same exact spot again... so, I docked another star. Fix please...

  • Extremely repetitive Jul 29, 2020

    By pgyang616
    Finished the game after 6 hours - graphics are amazing and story is good overall. However the game becomes extremely repetitive for the following reasons: 1. The ground exploration is basically selecting a commander and watching your team explore for 2-3 min. It’s the same thing repeated 50x throughout the game. 2. The story, while good, doesn’t follow the show not tell rule. Dialogue is extremely dense and makes me want to skip it. 3. Each time you navigate to a planet there is a random event. The problem is there are only 50 events in total, so you see the same events over and over again even in the same run. 4. The combat is the best part of the game. However even that becomes repetitive after awhile and my iPhone X screen is too tiny to see the nav elements. Overall, this is not worth paying full price for and it was a slog to get to the end. A shame too because the graphics, sound, etc are great.

    Incredible game, font is a bit small but it has just the right amount of immersion, depth and storytelling! Hyped for the upcoming DLC on android.

  • Similar to FTL but way better story Aug 7, 2020

    By Lancey-pants
    This is a good game with one of the best storylines I’ve had the pleasure to have finished. The gameplay style is very much like FTL (and if you don’t know what “FTL” is then educate yourself) but a bit more simple. FTL is actually better in terms of the ship-to-ship combat experience, and growth of “characters” and customization of you ship. But Suns shines and hooks you into the storyline so well you’ll find yourself hours into play and it’ll seem like little time has past at all. Well worth the cost. A good take on what our future may be after we create AI.

  • Great game Jul 20, 2020

    By DesertEagleGaming
    The storyline and gameplay in this game is great. Well worth the 9 dollars it costs. I only have 2 main issues with this game. First, it has some minor tech issues which include my phone getting pretty hot and also occasional random frame drops, the second is the fact that I quickly figured out who was behind the shutdown, but couldn’t progress to them and instead had to go thru all the different sectors. However don’t let that stop you from getting this game as the story is incredible and makes the game get y hard to put down. Overall 9/10

    An excellent game with a rps combat. The only thing stopping me from 5 stars is something you hear over and over with this title. The font is BRUTAL! Reading it is possible, but eventually I get a headache from the small size and mixture of the dark background(and darker graphics) and the thin very white text. With very simple changes this problem could be a thing of the past! Customizable size, font, and color would make all the difference.

  • Great Game but Large Issue Jul 3, 2020

    By Shadowzergsz
    This game has really good writing and a very solid basic concept Unfortunately however, I am unable to continue playing because I have no other stars to jump to. Made it to first planet and finished first expedition. Went to star map and literally the only jumps are “Entrance” (which I checked just in case) and the star I was currently at, making it impossible to progress the game. Quite a serious issue considering the price tag and the fact that I could only enjoy about 15 - 30 minutes of play I’ll restart the run to see if it occurs again but this is proof the bug exists. Dev team seems very responsive so will be changing rating when issue is fixed *Edit: Restarting the run seems to have fixed it. Now have access to 10+ jumps
