The goal of Star Shipping is to become the richest captain in the galaxy by trading commodities between new and exciting planets, while working for the intergalactic space trading company “Star Shipping Inc.” Since space is unpredictable while traveling to different planets, you’ll encounter multiple types of enemies like space pirates, monsters and other alien lifeforms.

About Star Shipping
Star Shipping offers players challenges that doesn’t rely on their ability to hit stuff on the screen, and doesn’t require them to be 100% focused on the game at all times. Instead they can play at their own pace, and use economy planning skills and intellect to trade various commodities between stars and climb up the score ladder as you accomplish your goal of becoming the richest space captain in the galaxy. Star Shipping includes an in-game store where you can buy upgrades to your ship in order to increase performance and get higher scores, a bank where you can keep your savings and where you can loan cash in times of need, scoring and ranking systems, leader boards, achievements, and challenges.
In the high resolution version of the game there is significantly more content, and players will see an improved version of the beautiful space backdrops, planets, aliens, nebulae, space ships, items and characters. The game also includes unique features for each platform, for example, the accelerometer is used on the iPhone and iPad, and the mouse is used on PC and Mac.
