Descriptions


Build your own space faring empire in this true 4X mobile game. Discover new technologies, other alien races, derelict ships and much more as you spread your Empire to the Stars. The galaxy maps and star systems are procedurally generated, so with every game there will be something new to discover.

You'll have to decide how to manage your Empire's resources between research, farming, and production, depending on your situation in the galaxy.

Do you focus on building up your current systems with more buildings, star ports, or defenses? Or do you continue expanding, building instead of Fleet of ships to defend your growing Empire?

Uciana features detailed turn-based ship-to-ship combat. In which you can customize the load out of each of your ships, with different weapons, defenses and other components. You'll have to use good strategies and planning to best your opponents in combat.

This game has been a dream of ours for many years. We will continue to improve the game play with adding content, balancing, improving the AI, and much more in the months to come.

    It's the greatest ever MOO tribute game on your phone! Ship combat...ground invasion...design ships...diplomacy...its all there. Awesome!!! Just so much value for an inexpensive game. For future updates.... would be good if more win conditions, eg not have to kill all allies to win, maybe even a 'capture the homeworld' mode...if diplomacy did a little more, eg espionage, including subversion of enemy planets and alliances - including done to you.

    Great game, but would love a multiplayer, even if it was just LAN. I'm not a big fan of hot seat playing (Not the games problem only mine) Full Review

    This is simply an amazing 4X strategy game on-the-go. Maybe the UI needs more time to mature but the gameplay is superb for this niche genre that's historically PC-only. Issues I've found (or feature?): Queuing a Ship Refit then canceling the order removes the ship(s) completely. While there is a prompt screen before a queue is removed, it's just weird that our imaginary shipyard engineers somehow destroyed(?) them when they were just supposed to realistically recommission those after cancelling a refit. I came across a scenario where I ordered a few ships for refit and a large enemy fleet attempted to attack. I imagined the admiral ordering an "emergency launch" protocol but the guys at the shipyard hit self-destruct instead... damn that stupid big red button... Update: it also needs more 'win' or end-game conditions and better diplomacy options; the shipyard thing was a prob from an earlier ver and I avoided doing that so i cant tell if its still a bug Full Review

    Good game, solid work all around. I guess the only thing i can ask so far is how to do you actually win? Do you have to crush everyone including your allies? Theres this classic big enemy on some planets but nothing more in reference? Just feels incomplete. That said, they kept true to it so yeah, good game Full Review

    Developer did an excellent job of abstracting some of the micro management from MOO, making it enjoyable on the phone. My only suggestion is the map overlay, it doesn't feel like the planets are mine, and territory isn't obvious when you compare it to sins of solar empire. A map update and getting the player to feel like they own a territory would be better Full Review

    Fantastic tribute to Master of Orion, the best one I've been able to find on Android! I'd love to see more complex customisation options for races, as well as an option to scale difficulty of research... Sometimes it feels like you reach the end of the research tree too quickly! Full Review

    I just got this and already love it... I love it's turn based, letting you play at a relaxed pace, and I love playing games on my tablet laying down... This is 100% the game for tablet I have been looking for... Still figuring out minor details as there is not much for tutorial, but it's fairly easy to catch on, overall a great game...Enemies start too close though, a lot of times in the next system, and you barely have time to build one good ship, so here's hoping they keep working on it :-) Full Review

    This is a great turn based strategy. Really reminds me of master of Orion. The controls are easy to use and the ai is good enough to be challenging. You won't win every time, but you're going to have fun. I highly recommend it. A couple of things I'd like to see is each race having a few unique technologies, the ability to designate rally points, and the ability to automatically repeat construction of ships. Full Review

    THIS GAME IS INCREDIBLE!!!! Plays so well as a 4X on the mobile, all for the same price as a Slim Jim at the Dollar Store, this is crazy! And it retains that classic "just one more turn" gameplay that makes the hours melt away Full Review

    As the food does not accumulate from one turn to the next it would cut down the micromanagement to have an option on a planet by planet basis to auto adjust the percentage to keep food at 0 or just in the black another useful option might be to designate a planet as a "bread basket" planet to keep the whole empire fed. Overall this game is a fun experience and I would argue a better 4X game as far as gameplay than Sid Meier's Civilization Revolution 2 for the Android. Alternative winning possibilities would also be a nice addition. The happiness function seems to not have any influence outside of taking over a enemy planet and the gradual reduction of resistance, but I haven't seen every planet type yet so maybe a plague planet might need buildings for happiness. Or maybe the buildings affect the reduction rate of resistance empire wide, I don't know I haven't researched or built them yet as it seems I would get little out of it. Full Review

    It's good . I don't think it's "oh my god I've just jizzed in my pants" excellent like some reviews here say but definitely worth 3 or 4 stars. Gets a bit samey, build, research, add to planets, attack, defend and sometimes comes down to who can build ships fast enough. I'm a huge strategy fan and have been playing this genre for decades and I would say it's worth the quid to add to your collection but hard-core strategy gamers may get bored a little after 100 turns or more. Good work though devs, remade MOO quite well Full Review

    I still play Master of Orion 2 all the time. It's the best 4x game ever made and this is really similar. For a mobile game this is amazing. Love everything about this game. My congrats to the developers much better than 90% of PC space based 4x games Full Review

    Great game. Feels like MoO for Android. My only wish is a fixed starting locations option. I've played 2 civ game with a size 50 galaxy and still had the oppsing race be the closest star to me. Full Review

    Worth more than 99 cents in my opinion!! It takes some time to learn how to play but that's what I like about it. It's holding my interest because it's challenging and complex. Definitely recommend it for anyone who likes strategy games. Two suggestions to the developers: I wish I could name all the planets I colonize and also organize my ships into squads. :) Thanks for this awesome game! Full Review

    The Catholic Cabbage Published date: February 6, 2018

    You've done an excellent job. My only complaints are I wish there was a better built in tutorial, without having to watch you play on YouTube, and I seem to be having a glitch with the migration, and really the sliders in general. I can't slide to control migration so planets without people on them are stuck that way. Please fix, I'm on Android 6 and using a Moto G5S Plus if that helps. Other than that, you've completely knocked it out of the park, excellently done! Full Review

    I rarely give any app or game a 5 star rating, but this one definitely deserves it. As someone who has played Masters of Orion and Civilization (all of them), this game is on the right track to be as popular and fun as they have been. Understanding it is still a work in progress, the improvements and updates are noticable. It takes a little time to figure some things out, but that's part of the fun. I have only encountered one glitch during the game that happened twice now and someone else mentioned it happening to them, and that is where my ship(s) are suddenly stuck somewhere with no possible routes or destinations available. I have had to sell the ship(s) to move past that issue. It seems random and rare, but still something to look into. One suggestion I would make is to have the game notify you when a colony ship has arrived at its destination. Quite often I will forget I sent a colony ship somewhere and when I finally remember, another race usually has taken the planet I have wanted. Bottom line, it's a fun and interesting game and seems to just be getting better! Full Review

    Really impressed. MOO2 on my phone? Awesome. Had a small issue where I couldn't finish a game because I couldn't access a system that the AI had a base on due to a nearby space thingy, but wouldn't mark it down for that.... Full Review

    Wade Walker Published date: January 29, 2018

    No IAP. That's worth five stars alone in my book. A game that focuses on gameplay again. Yay! Very deep, definitely a learning curve here and must say I'm struggling a bit out of the gate. Nice if devs could ratchet down difficulty on easy a bit. Be more enjoyable for casual players or those just figuring things out. Tutorial videos that are being added may help here, too. But well worth picking up regardless. Insanely low price for what you get here. **Update that easy difficulty is quite easy, actually. Just took a little while to figure things out and got unlucky a couple times out of the gate. Minor enhancement would be to easily see available power on build screen and update it as you update build queue. Don't think it shows there and a pain to switch to planet screen and then keep track in your head as you fill up queue. Full Review

    Fun game, runs really well and very enjoyable, more than worth the price. By far the best Turn Based Strategy game on mobile that I have played. As seen in other posts, the game is still a work in progress and there are things that need to be tweaked and added, but nothing that really stops you from playing and enjoying it. Is there a place where users can submit feedback and suggestions on gameplay, other than leaving them in the review? Thanks and looking forward to seeing the game grow! Full Review

    Great indie 4X title. Lots of customization and depth of strategy. Gameplay is great. I would suggest adding a story / campaign mode that, to start, would walk players through the gameplay, as a couple aspects were confusing at first. Full Review
