Profiteer - a new Android game released by RokSoft
A madcap space trading adventure available now in the Google Play store. Can you beat eight other space truckers, each with their own unique quirks and traits, in your quest to become a true Profiteer?
Profiteer Lite is a completely free version and does not contain ads. It allows ten week missions and contains all the features required for a full game against up to eight AI or human players. The full Profiteer game takes things a few steps further, allowing games of any length and enabling the player to purchase multiple space trucks along with a wide range of weird and wonderful enhancements.
Profiteer is designed so that a player can take a single turn when they have a few minutes to spare or they can play a whole game for as long as they want whenever they're in the mood to do so. It has also been designed to introduce younger players to the concepts of supply and demand whilst developing their mathematical skills without them even realising!
Profiteer Lite can be purchased from Google Play at:
You've been given an old space truck and enough money to set yourself up in business. From these meagre beginnings do you have what it takes to become a true Profiteer?
Will you excel in interplanetary trade and have what it takes to transport exotic goods between worlds? Will you dabble in the black market, risking the potential penalties for doing so? Can you build up a fleet of space trucks or will you concentrate on improving the one that you've got? Will you make your fortune slowly and carefully or spend all your money trying to get rich quicker?
Don't think you're alone out there, though! Eight other space truckers are all just as eager to make their own names in the galaxy. Each one has their own unique personality. Some are calculating, some are criminal and a few may be completely bonkers! They'll be trying to beat you to planets to take all the potential profits for themselves, moving in on your trade routes and maybe even trying to sabotage your trucks.
You'll need to plan your strategies carefully. Will you avoid planets where the workforce has gone on strike or use it to your advantage? Will you keep away from space pirates or buy defences for your truck and beat them at their own game? Each planet has its own special events but are you going to risk using them, knowing that the outcomes are not always to your favour?
Connect to your Google+ account to find a myriad of achievements to unlock and a host of leaderboards to compare your scores against all the other Profiteer players out there!
Play a few turns when you have a little time to spare or find yourself engrossed for hours as you vie against the other space truckers, each one of you fighting towards your goal of becoming a Profiteer. Even play a multiplayer game against your own friends on a single device!
Good luck and bon voyage...
