Finding the perfect balance isn’t easy, but those who do will discover a subtle style of gameplay that demands more than other programs of the genre. While not for the uninitiated, the title is well worth the time and energy invested in learning.
Amazing and unique game that still looks great today! The music is awesome, the gameplay is simple and the challenge is definitely there. Did I mention its also funny? This is one of the best games I've ever played and still come back to it at least once a year. Love it!
If you liked The Sims, Simcity Series, or any other people simulator-based worlds, then Startopia opens new doors for alien simulation with great comedy and very very entertaining. I gave this a 10 - point rating after recently installing this on my new computer more than 15 years after its release! Runs on Macintosh also if you use help guides online!
This game is among the titans when it comes to economic games. Excellent premise, excellent graphics, humorous, and, above all, incredibly complex.
I'd give blood to see it updated or picked up again, alas, with the departure of Muckyfoot I am left with some W7 incompatibility.
There is literally nothing that can be said about this game that is bad (except it sometimes crashes on W7). Everything is well balanced, sandbox is fun, challenges are fun, the amount of freedom is incredible and there are no two games alike, and ALL without needing an infinite universe like other games.
SummaryAny "Futurama" fanatics out there need another hit of space humor? Rebuild and manage a giant 2001-esque space donut/station and attract a variety of alien species to it in a game that plays like the deep space version of "Dungeon Keeper."
