About

The solar system is ravaged. The Earth is gone, shattered to pieces. Nothing remains but a huge ring of rocky debris. Nobody knows why the Gate malfunctioned. It was built to connect our world to other stars, but only a handful of colony ships were sent away before disaster struck. The Gate is believed to have unexpectedly connected to the wrong star -one just going nova. Torrents of gravitational waves flooded our solar system and the Earth was immediately obliterated. The Gate then started connecting to random stars, spewing ashes from dying worlds, radiation from younger suns or even drawing in alien lifeforms. The solar system began to change. Humans and their machines live on: pockets of civilization have gathered into warring factions. Many adventurers roam the cold wastes in their spaceships, defying death and perils unknown -there are countless tales of monstrous machines and alien creatures preying on hapless ships. Real menaces or mere fantasies ? Who can now part the myth from the ever-changing reality ? In a world where humans, monsters and machine-gods fight for survival, something will eventually have to give. You play the role of a young adventurer, who just got his hands on his first spaceship, and is determined to make a name for himself. A routine scouting mission turns out to be something much greater when you encounter an A.I. called Ceres. Key Features: • Single-player tactical space combat. • Lead a squadron of ships and fight through a mission-drive storyline the way you see fit. • Third person view and simple yet deep point-and-click order system. • Your ships not only unleash deadly lasers or missiles, but it is possible to launch hacking attacks to damage or even take control of enemy ships ! • Manage your set of skills as you gain experience. Special perks also appear when you perform well. • Hire captains and crews for your squadron’s ships. Watch them gain experience as they fight by your side. • Heavily customize your ships with equipment or weapons of different origins. Modify ship’s modules, armor, weapons, sensors or counter-measures. • Dozens of ship types which can be acquired and commanded, from the smallest corvette to the mightiest battleship. • Advanced damage system: ships can suffer critical and system failures in combat. • Loot anything that floats in space, trade items around the solar system to gain extra income, or salvage wrecked ships and even capture hostile vessels with boarding drones.

Ceres reviews and comments

So, I've not played habs long yet, but what I can already say is that the Gameplay is very interesting and good. Graphics are also ok and the Story is also quite unusual, which is rarely the Case nowadays. ;) It still seems a little buggy, but so far I haven't sailed out of the Game breaking category. Also, the 1-Man developer is still developing and patching the Thing further. Potential is great and it doesn't cost that much now. :P

I thought I was buying this Game because it sounded very interesting. One fortry, I've only tried my hand at the Tutorial so far. This Game, unfortunately, has fallen far short of my Expectations. Anyone who still knows the old Nexus will be very disavdered. The Controls I find quite corked (why do I first have to press a Button and then first issue a Motion Command to name just one.) The Graphics are really out of date and what I've seen so far from the Ships is not really well animated. I can't say Anything about the Story as I made the Game after the Tutorial. It will certainly find its Fans needs in the current State but still some Improvements. Edit: Have installed it again now to give the Game a second chance. The Controls are still corked and the Camera Guidance is rather Meagre, but the graphics and much else have seemingly been crafted. The Missions are Fun, too. From what I've seen from the Story so far, it seems to take Bonds to Nexus. Equipping the Ships is also Fun. Meanwhile Thumbs Up.

Quite honest? Rarely bought such a Buggy Game. I pulled the Game at nem mate a few Months ago over several Hours. It was already buggated. Funnily enough, the same Buggs are still in place. Pros:-Spaaaccceee Cons:-Verbuggt without End-Z.b you can vllt 3-4 times open the Station menu, after which it stays empty as soon as you open it. -The 2nd Mission is directly Murderous. At least 10 Ships against 1 Ship. Even if you plunder, Sell, do side Quests for Agony ... You never get enough Money together to Get up against it-Missions are triggered randomly. You fly unwittingly through the Map when a Ship suddenly appears at a great Distance. All right, you're ignored, you just have something else going on. About 1 Hours (!) later, suddenly the Message is plopping that a Mission ship is destroyed. And you can't keep playing because the Story failed. Super, 1 Hour lost, Class. -Once you do this comical Reach ping, dozens Of opponents become Attentive. And best of all: You do NOT see them yourself, but you are shot to Death by them from a Distance. -Control is bad. Dactless Coordination is not possible. -Finding The Way is bad. Ship very often flies against Asteroids and Space stations. - ... I could keep that List, but I don't. Even if it only prepays €10 that I paid, it wasn't worth it anyway. I hope that something will change.
