The popular board game has now been compressed into a feature-packed phone app. You will be required to grab your best space engineering boots in order to pick, place, and rotate a large variety of components onto your pipe-structured spaceship. Each add-on has a different function, pivotal in your role of making a safe journey to your destination ahead of your opponent. For example, batteries help power-up your cannons, and storage units allow you to collect items!

After creating a character profile complete with your own avatar and nickname, dive into the intergalactic action. Tutorial mode is great for beginners or those who want a refresher of the rules. Campaign mode lets you embark on a progressive adventure, whereas Custom allows you control of the game. Custom mode includes switching between real-time or classic play and even adjusting the type of bots you will be competing against!

▲ Each blue square represents a component which has a specific function to bolster up your ship!

▲ Begin the space race, and deal with the elements that come hurtling your way!

▲ Too many components to remember? Tutorial mode will serve as a helpful reminder to keep you safely powering through the galaxy.

A unique feature made possible by this game becoming digital is that you can now play online against other opponents across the universe! If you prefer a more classic feel, you can even play in Pass & Play mode which allows you and a friend to switch play between one another on the same device.

This game is made even more exciting by the chance element to the gameplay. During each round, a card is drawn. Whether the card spells trouble for your spaceship, or helps you reach your goal of tallying up more cosmic credits is for fate to decide!

In the beginning, the realm known as Tartarus was barren, but the Goddesses Life and Death intervened and created all living beings. For centuries, people lived happily… until the Goddesses disappeared, leaving the realm in chaos. You begin your tale as Asha, a young girl who was separated from her older sister during an attack. Venture through dark forests and decimated cities in your search for your sibling; meet friendly allies who will join you on your quest to discover truth and become a hero in this 2D retro-style clicker RPG.

Your adventure in Tartarus follows a linear progression through unlockable map locations. Tap on a map marker to battle waves of monsters. Although your characters auto-attack, keep tapping to pummel enemies with additional blows. You will also need to tap to generate mana for offensive and healing spells. Vanquish monsters to unlock succeeding stages and eventually clear the zone. The story will then progress through cute comic cutscenes before you enter a new realm. Recruit various characters on your journey to ensure victory!

▲ Tap repeatedly on monsters to defeat them — but don’t neglect healing or casting powerful spells!

▲ Enjoy flavorful cutscenes with panel-by-panel transitions telling the story of Asha and friends.

▲ Be sure to level up and equip stat-boosting artifacts to win difficult battles.

Fallen foes will drop ice, fire, or shadow elemental orbs; use these to heal and upgrade your allies. Each character requires a specific element, so strategize and manage how you spend these resources. Additionally, as you quest, you will meet new friends; however, it requires a significant amount of elemental orbs to unlock them so they can join your team. If you are struggling with progression or if you want to add another member to your party, be sure to revisit old stages to battle monsters and save up orbs.

Your quest through Tartarus will reveal mysteries about the world as well as your own inner strengths. It will also bless you with companions and a wealth of enhancing treasures. Will Asha be reunited with her sister? What secrets and dangers await you in the realm abandoned by the Goddesses?
