App Review: Star Trek by Electronic Arts

startrek1 150x150 App Review: Star Trek by Electronic ArtsStar Trek by Electronic Arts is an awesome way to become part of the missions you see your favorite characters undertake on T.V. There are tons of missions on Star Trek.  On each mission, there are a series of attackers that you will need to defeat using your phasers, torpedoes, shields, and tractor beam. Your phasers will fire automatically at the enemy ships and can fire in any direction. The Torpedoes must be fired be tapping the fire button. The torpedoes shoot only out of the front of the Enterprise. The shields will protect you from enemy fire and other dangerous obstacles. Your Tractor Beam will take in the power ups that come within your range. The power ups are things such as: health, multiple phasers, helpful ally ships and more. You can upgrade your phasers, torpedoes, shields, and your tractor beam after each mission using the stars that you earn during the missions. You earn these stars by completing certain challenges.

While you are fighting alien species, you also have to steer your ship through space.  There are three ways to control your ship, the USS Enterprise: accelerometer, virtual joystick, or touch. With the accelerometer controls, you just tilt to fly your ship.  You can tap anywhere on the screen to fire your torpedoes. With the virtual joystick, you use an invisible joystick to control your ship, and you tap the green circle in the bottom right corner of the screen to fire your torpedoes. With the touch controls, you just touch in the direction that you wish your ship to fly and then you press the same green fire button in the bottom right corner of the screen to fire your torpedoes.

In Campaign Mode, there are three different level packs: The Klingons, The Romulans, and The Cardassians. Each of these level packs contains 9 unique levels. You can also play in Quick Play mode. This will select a random level for you to play.

Star Trek contains all of the characters from the Movie such as: Spock, Kirk, Chekhov, Sulu, Scotty and Uhura. This is the best space game on the App Store, and definitely a must have for any Trekkies or anyone looking for an exciting game. This game is awesome with great replay value and objectives.

Star Trek is $2.99 in the iTunes App Store.
