Comments on: Star Command Game for Palm OS

Star (Trek) Command for Palm OSStar Command is a Palm OS re-creation of the old Star Fleet game of the early 80s, which was (of course) a Star Trek simulation. I was excited to recently discover that this game exists for Palm OS on PalmAddicts, as I spent countless hours enjoying this on a classic mac ages ago. In the game you control a starship and travel the galaxy fighting enemies in order to stay alive and rise in rank. Names have been slightly changed for trademark purposes, so now you fight Krutons (instead of Klingons) and Zingers (instead of Romulans).

Star Command is compatible with Palm OS 3.5 and higher. It will run on older greyscale handhelds as well as color and high resolution screens on the latest models. The game features trek-like ships, controls, weapons and sound effects. The full version costs $12.00 to register and there is a free trial that will allow you to play through the 3rd rank, where cloaking Zinger's begin to appear.

I remember playing a version of this on my brother's network YEARS ago.

It's like visiting an old friend.

I just downloaded the demo and gave it a quick run-through over lunch. Faithful to the original, and just as entertaining.

Well done!

One by one, the penguins are stealing my sanity.

Wow, this brings back memories... I re-wrote this game for the Apple /// in Business Basic. Not a total redo, just squashed some bugs, and used the ///'s ability to have custom fonts to actually show the ships as ships instead of ascii characters. Has it been that long? I gotta give this a try!

No Warpdrive in the LifeDrive

Man I was soooo excited to see this new version. However, it crashed my Palm LifeDrive as soon as I started shooting at the Krutons. Maybe I should have used a Ranch or Thousand Island Phase Discrimanator.

Hi, I'm the developer of Star Command. It's cool to see this posted here and the enthusiastic comments.

This is the first I've heard of this problem on the LifeDrive (other than someone posting the same problem on my site's forums yesterday, I'm kind of assuming it was the same guy). I haven't actually done an update on Star Command for a long time because I've been working on the next game. But I'll take a look at this problem, assuming I can get the LD Simulator working, and see if I can fix it ASAP
