    Hello,

    I was looking for a game that involved trading, specifically between galaxies/planets/etc. Trading, piracy, law enforcement, smuggling, economies, and weapon/ship upgrades are all important aspects.

    Similar games to this are:

    Dopewars (PC)
    Space Trader (Palm Pilot)
    EVE Online maybe? (PC)

    These kind of games are really fun to me but haven't found any yet.

    Suggestions?

    Hi,

    There is a "Space Trader" clone for Android; it's not quite the same as the old Palm game (the developer claims to have never heard of the Pieter Spronck's game), but it is very similar. Just search the market for that name.

    There is also a Dopewars on the market; haven't played it, though.

    My game Pirates and Traders is a similar game, but not in a space setting.

    I would never get anything done if I could play Eve on my phone.

    Try Star Traders RPG by the Trese Brothers. There's a free version, and a paid version. If you like it, the paid version is worth the download as it has a much larger area to explore.

    There's also a newer one by them called Star Traders 4X but I struggled to get into that one.

    As this thread seems to have come back to life I'd like to suggest Space Trading Profiteer. There's a free 'lite' version which allows ten-turn games or a full version if you like the game. I might be slightly biased, being the developer of the game, but it's free to try so what have you got to lose? :)

    Thanks! Great to hear that you're enjoying it. I aimed to develop the type of space-based trading game that I wanted to play myself and since then have brought out regular updates to add commonly asked for features and fix any issues that have been reported. It's always nice to get feedback from people who have played it :)
