I plug OUTER EMPIRES as well. The Best sandbox mobile mmo I've played to date, a bit like EvE-mobile, where you have full freedom of actions and a huge online world, it's pretty good as long as you're fine with the 2D graphics. Definitely a game that rewards the further you get into it. If like a bit more complexity to your games, worth a try.

Star Legends should be approved fairly soon, so for another dungeon-crawler should add to the small pickings already available as well.

@Dixa That's Outer Empires. Runs on your iOS or browser. A cool game for sure!

Pocket Legends isn't half bad, but of course the challenge is to handle the menus a good MMO needs on a 4.3 or smaller screen.

But I have had some fun playing PL when stuck somewhere. It is of course much better over WiFi.

And it's free, too. PL is ok by me!

Outer Empires is great, I have played solidly for 18months, during this time i have become a respected faction leader and alliance founder, crafted the best shields on sale in the game, spent 2 months fighting and winning a galaxy wide war. With another character I became the most notorious pirate in game, somehow managing to get elected to the galactic council which decides upgrade priorities for the Devs despite being a pirate and finessing that into getting voted galactic president and then stealing 15m of the budget. The sky is definitely only limited by your imagination in this sandbox. Player run economy too.

@Ref Minor So which client do you prefer, or do you switch between browser and iOS?

I started with the browser before iOS version came out so I still tend towards browser, easier to chat and you can also keep your colony details to hand in a spreadsheet next to the browser. Having said that since I got an iPad I am about 50:50.

Either way the beauty of it is that you have a full sandbox MMO wherever you happen to be.
