[prMac.com] London, United Kingdom - MonkeyX Productions today is pleased to announce that Omega Frontier for iOS has been approved for release in all regions. Omega Frontier is a space exploration strategy game that puts the player in command of a starship exploring an endless number of solar systems. The player must manage their resources as they seek to terraform and colonise newly discovered planets. Players score points for exploring planets, discovering new solar systems, terraforming previously uninhabitable planets and colonising them. Once the player's ship runs out of fuel, the game is over.
The game features Game Center integration with 4 leaderboards and 25 achievements to be unlocked. To avoid being lost in space, they must explore planets for the vital resources they need. Another route to obtaining the fuel, nanites and colonists they need is to trade with populated planets. Finding the best trade deals requires strategic thinking and investigation of different planet types from gas giants and icy rock worlds through hospitable garden worlds to remote asteroids.
Players can listen to an ambient soundtrack as they explore and deploy monitoring satellites over worlds. Once finished in a solar system, it is time to jump to a new star and seek new worlds. Players compete on leaderboards for greatest captain of the Frontier, terraforming more and more exotic planets and bringing the most colonists to new homes. The journey is the destination in Omega Frontier.
"Our goal with Omega Frontier was to make a game that captured the essence of exploration in science fiction," explained Seyed Razavi of MonkeyX Productions. "We put the player at the heart of the adventure and let them plot their own path as they manage their limited resources."
Omega Frontier is free. "We're a new game studio and we wanted to make something fun and polished to get our name out there," explained Seyed Razavi. "The game is our gift to fans of the genre and I think they won't be disappointed."
