Star Supremacy Review
By Ange Perdu
Star Supremacy is a 2D sci-fi warfare theme MMORTS where players become colony leaders establishing an intergalactic empire.

Perform ground-breaking research from Aerophonics to Interplanetary Engines. Create massive fleets with attached weaponry, recruit commanders, raid resources, or capture them for continuous use. Travel to distant planets to establish new colonies. Assault or completely obliterate other player’s colonies in order to earn rank. In this space themed voyage explore unknown stars and seize the universe with your friends.
Expanding Your Empire, the Gameplay
Most of the gameplay in Star Supremacy involves the construction of colonies and fleets. After a brief tutorial players have to build and upgrade various essential structures in their base.
There’s a wide variety of units to choose from. Set up structures like Commercial Centers, Engineering Facilities, Trade Platforms, Stores, Hydroponics, Hubs, and Solar Panels. Each building contributes to the empire in a different way. Industrial Plants refines ore into goods, Space Ports allow users to create trade routes connected to their colony, and Quarters increases an empire’s population growth rate. Initially quests in the game serve primarily as a guide in the construction process. These tasks are often simple and vary from having a level 5 Commercial Center to researching the topic of agriculture. There are also daily repeatable assignments like assaulting the colony of a player or saying a word in the chat system. As players advance more specific quests geared towards security, combat, and commanding generals become available. Similar to games like Immortal King Online goods are not easily gathered. Valuable resources in the form of food or ore are produced in small amounts from farms and mines. Players have to venture out into the cosmos frequently to raid and capture resource nodes guarded by NPCs or other players in order to increase their colony’s reserves. Although it can feel repetitive at times both actions usually result in a fun turn-based space battle with an opportunity to snag a high ranking commander. Raiding and capturing outposts is not only a major part of the gameplay but essential in leveling up characters as well.
Bombers to Battleships
To raid or capture any resource location players must first have a combat fleet at their disposal. The ship assembly feature in this game is impressive. In the ship yard area users can design and create a variety of different space shuttles equipped with various weaponry. Choose from basic strike crafts and destroyers to bombers. Attach modules in the form of heavy armor or scramblers to protect against attacks. Add missiles, heavy gauss gun, lasers, heavy rail, and flak cannons. Once the fleet is constructed and assigned to a specific commander players can simply click to invade an occupied resource node. Similar to Dark Orbit battles are interactive. During combat each commander with their corresponding fleets take turns attacking their opponents’ spaceships. Activate a standard attack or send in fighters and bomber crafts to attack each round. The last fleet standing wins. Battles earn experience along with a bundle of resources depending on location. When a player wages war against another player’s guarded node or colony they have the option of initiating a full assault or complete obliteration. Assaults allow the vanquisher to steal goods while obliterations damage the defeated adversary’s buildings. Strategy and research are also key components in Star Supremacy. Players have to strategize in the development of their fleet, topics researched, commander recruitment, and the equipment each character is equipped with. The extensive research option features multiple category topics that unlock dozens of ship designs, guns, and tools to enhance combat. Chances of a victorious win increases with higher level commanding generals and better equipment.
Beam Swords & Heavy Firepower
The shop features a small assortment of equipment and weapons for players to invest in. Most of the items are rather generic in appearance. There’s not a lot of room for character customization. Purchase Beam Swords, Energized Helmets, Space Units, Crystal Necklaces, Microcomputers, Gauss Telescope, Laser Accelerator, Missile Accurate Device, Trade Tokens, Energy Potions, Hyperspace Shields, and Satellite Spies. Buy rare items for boosts like the Heavy Firepower which increases ship damage during battles or Space Robots for accelerating the construction process. Non-equipment items cost B-Credits. Luckily, for gamers there’s a generous reward system implemented in Star Supremacy which lets players earn credits for being online for a certain period of time. Users can easily rack up a large amount of B-Credits without spending real cash. It’s a wonderful feature rarely seen in free-to-play titles.
Final Verdict: Great
This is a great space themed real-time strategy MMO. Players will find themselves obsessed with conquering the galaxy. The ship assembly feature really makes the game. Players have the ability to customize each warship with the specific weapon and module of their choice. As a player levels up and conduct the appropriate research it’s possible to build a massive fleet of unstoppable battleships. Destroy other players’ colonies or steal their valuable resources for fun. The interactive combat has an almost RPG feel similar to Drakensang Online. Players can equip commanders with special equipment and gear for an edge in battle. Strategy is implemented into every aspect of this game giving novice to hardcore players a challenge. Fans of games like Dark Orbit and Space Invasion will definitely enjoy this sci-fi adventure. The extremely balanced credit system makes Star Supremacy a genuinely free-to-play RTS worth checking out.
