StarTrader is a simple "TEXT based space trading simulation game".
What it is NOT is a space shooter game; it includes a simple combat screen but this won't make it a combat or shooting game.
The game goals are simply to trade goods between star systems, hopefully allowing you the earn enough "Galactic Credits" to upgrade your ship (and be able to do more than run from the pirate ships around).
This game is very text and numbers intensive, and inspired in old computer games.
