Rise and Shiny recap: Starjack Online

Nov 16th 2011 11:57AM I love empire-building strategy games and tried playing this game for about one week.

It was a painful experience.

Where to begin? The font is indeed horrible and too small, so prepare for eye strain. The tutorials are rife with misspellings and grammar errors. Basic game commands are sometimes hidden, and overall the user interface is a complete MESS. Upon finishing the tutorials you will realize that playing the game ultimately involves tediously and laboriously micromanaging your empire with the reward of watching small triangles (player ships) move mindlessly back and forth across the screen. Sound like fun? It most definitely is not.

A Google search reveals that the UI may have been written in WPF, which does not bode well for folks on non-Windows machines, and might explain why the UI won't snapshot cleanly.

Also, if you play Starjack and are thinking of posting on the forums, be aware that player usernames are used as forum display names, so posting on the forum will reveal your login username for all to see.
