Sandstorm: Pirate Wars



I have a thing for junk spacecraft. Dead space was a favorite. And this fits in its style. If your a space ship person. There is a bit of customization. Build your ship to be a terror. A few different ships to shop from. And from what I see. I wide range of weapons to choose to use on your ship. It’s a little bit like arc of was. But a lot more easy to understand. So if you like a ship upgrade game. But don’t want to take a class to use the app. This one is perfect. Ads only to get a better win results. Overall an amazing app.

    Needed:Someway to send a message to game master. Would have given more stars but I can’t seem to get a stunner over level 5. I have one lv 7 and the rest lv 5. I have well over 100 systems of all kinds.I would trade them all for 1 level 10 stunner.I’ve watch countless videos and bought creates.Haven’t even seen one on the drops that you could have bought.

    I actually like this game and it’s got a solid concept going for it. The reason I’m rating it so low, is it ask you if you want to watch an ad to have your ship repaired with out waiting or spending resources or to get an extra combat reward, which is fine except the game won’t load the ads consistently. I’m not sure if this is an issue with there server or on purpose, but I know it’s not my connection. I have the same issue wether I’m using wifi or 4G, when other apps work just fine.

    J Jones February 24, 2017
    Do you enjoy watching ads just to get your post battle reward? Do you enjoy having to use premium currency to get you post battle reward? Do you enjoy getting nothing to progress, having to wait for energy and repairs and playing games that do not have finished story line or ending? If so, you should play this disgusting joke. Otherwise stay far away. The concept is good, the execution is horrid.

    Bugs and Issues: Sturgeon superpower has short working time and is’ t worth the lost hp. Randomization of the superpower isn’t fun, it’s annoying, interfering with your strategy. Game becomes random clicking rather than solid strategy. New ships is an awesome addition. Thanks. Ace loot now is way overpriced.

    Developer Ubisoft Entertainment February 5, 2016 Hi there! Thanks for all of the feedback, we really value it as our team need all the information they can get to improve the game and resolve these issues. Thanks to reports like yours, the bug with the kamikaze drones will be fixed in the upcoming update. Otherwise, we’re looking into the balancing and randomization issues. Thank you again!

    Dan G. February 20, 2017
    Very good, nearly five stars in my book. Does use up some data steam with those ads. You’ll need some RAM memory for this one, the software’s pretty large. Has a few software glitches here and there, it could run more smoothly. Great graphics and UI.

    i cannot utilize the video reward option. It pops up every time and when i tap on it,i doesn’t let me surf the video and claim any reward. It is quite frustrating as i cannot even see claim my rewards which i can have by watching video and hinders my progress in the game.

    PVP is way too lopsided. One victory is ALWAYS followed by a dozen defeats. Make the matchups closer together instead of 20 points apart. Players should be able to get upgrade materials from missions, not only PVP. Systems should drop more often.

    Fremontidae Scott January 31, 2017
    Everyone should know this game is not finished. As in, the main storyline is not finished, and there is no promise it will be. They don’t tell you that before you spend money in the game. It has a cool aesthetic that is very obviously influenced by Firefly. But the gameplay is repetitive, enemies don’t scale to player level, and there is no decent story.

    Jason Chen April 8, 2017
    The main issue I have us that the later three ships you can unlock seem rather weak in comparison. Their abilities lack the general usefulness of the first three, and their stunted stats due to their specialization just weaken them further. For example, the Mamba has a cloak to turn temporary untargetable, but it has 1/3 of the usual HP, if a smart opponent just waits out the cloak, the mamba gets ripped in half by a cannon round.

    Scoob Scoob January 28, 2017
    Overall it’s ok. Not really my thing but thought I’d try it out anyway. Ill play a bit more till the story dies out or i finish it which ever comes first

    Antoni Alamsyah May 23, 2017
    I love this game. Great game, nice graphics, fresh concept and gameplay. But please add more variations of quests in the tavern, the quests (destroy this, destroy that, go he
    re, go there) are boring. And please add more ship, more properties on the ship, more and cheaper visual customization, and more gameplay so that we have more thing to do in this game. The point is, just add more features to keep us play and not get bored.

    Scott Beasley July 18, 2017
    What a cheat! Each boss is a higher level tank! Game tactics like bringing on weaponry the players don’t have uneven league matches. It would be a great game if it didn’t play like a hack job. Arena……my ship 143…… The game says this ship of 187 was my match……….i guess i have to muck about to beat the level 5 everything the game jams up on me at level 4………with its shield target blocking and other weapons i have never seen

    Fuzzy Muzzy January 30, 2017
    Another F2P grinder with limited strategical input/decision making. I guess skill in games nowadays no longer a requirement. You just need to pay-to-win. Shame on the “gamers” who spend hundred of dollars in what’s P2C (Pay To Cheat) model.

    David Castro July 10, 2017
    Seems pretty fun worth trying. Annoying thing is they purposely crash you most of the time after you watch the free repair videos so you have to watch them twice very annoying.

    Ahmed Abd Elhamed August 25, 2017
    Please increase the quality of graphics more and more like play station 4,if possible. Please add vibration mode for more excitement. Please improve visuals and effects to high degrees. Please improve battles, fights,encounters,conflicts,actions,explosions and damages to be more real, exciting and attractive. Please make the game fast and smooth. Give me new versions monthly.

    Sujit Kumar Singh January 30, 2017
    nice to have a game like this which requires tactics.Fix the issue with Flare’s refill. When opposite ship uses Missile system, other one ends refilling Flares for entire match barely getting opportunity to fire back.

    Spencer Ess August 11, 2017
    Ads are broken..I don’t mind watching ad’s to repair my ship but 80% of the time they don’t work!!! Turned a 5 star game into a 1 star! I’m using an RCA Viking Pro tablet.

    Mike Jr June 13, 2017
    Overall its a decent ROCK/PAPER/SIXXORZ Game but with a nice addition of modifiers such as weapon levels & rarity.Ubisoft does a decent job on mobile graphics and this is no exception.The game so far seems pretty well balanced even if you don’t want to actually pay out any micro trans, but at sub $5 for a decent amount of currency it isn’t hard to see why people would click that old “skip-a-day” button.Overall I think the game is fairly good at least in the first hour of gameplay, and the missions are plentiful, the ADs are not invasive as they are used only to buff how much loot you get… example it will double your loot on a pve kill or pvp arena win….and Remember, GAME ON!Farley318

    The pirate arena rewards are glitch and in order to get support you MUST have an ubisoft account, in order to create one you MUST have a VALID EMAIL. Well apparently the email that I use every day and get government emails, online adds and works emails to is utterly invalid. So. Ubisoft team. Feel free to get in touch with meGod knows you make it impossible to find help o NV your website. Experienced the same glitch again in the pirate arena where i will have 1200 points then it will glitch out and reset

    Tedster NV February 17, 2017
    I love this game, but it will not allow me to connect to my Google Play Gaming account. When ever I try, it shuts down the game. I would really love to play this game on all my devices once the bug is fixed. Thanks!!

    William Rabenold January 31, 2017
    Bugs need fixing. The game constantly refreshes saying the servers are down or something. And I’m really annoyed about the videos not loading for the free loot and free repair. I’ve missed out on a lot of good loot and a large amount of power cells and bolts because of it.

    That One Pleb March 18, 2017
    Backround when battling could be improved. Rockets and motar needs a higher energy consumption. The amound of times I had my sand cruiser destroyed is 2 out of 3 times. I also think plasma weapons should be reworked since cannons and missiles can be intercepted by flares. Also Mamba ship should be reworked for balance. It takes energy when going into cloak but it never tells you that.

    Harsh Pandey October 7, 2017
    The game was not like I expected it as to be like riding on a ship and going on forever in lonely planet and encountering good and ships . A real time battle one on one. In this game, riding is like you are not enjoying the ride and it’s situation but you are running towards gathering more money. You got the point.

    Logan Grissom July 8, 2017
    I love the game itself, but eve
    ry time I watch an add to claim an award it exits me out. It’s very annoying and now it’s doing it constantly. It may just be my phone but I don’t think so. But, if you fix this, I will rate 5-star.

    Daniel Laster April 22, 2017
    The game is fun but it has a problem saving large amounts of progress. I had beat jester, completed about four side missions, completed the first training test, and upgraded my ship now im back to before the jester battle. None of that progress was saved this is extremely frustrating to deal with.

    nishant sahoo February 18, 2017
    Ads dont load so we dont get prizes offered. Play games doesn’t connect to save my progress. Stupid game though with lots of issues.

    Truck Mitchell July 29, 2017
    It’s got great graphics and no doubt lot of work gone into developing… for which I respect but the game play falls short for me I like to b in control of movement and it’s more like playing a slot machine or blackjack no skill just luck but I do hope you’ll consider bringing a fps out some time in the future as I appreciate the fault is mine not yours truly best regards in future Endeavours!!

    W Young February 6, 2017
    Don’t waste a dime of your money on this worthless game, if you do, your stupid! The game is unfinished, I’ve been waiting at least a year for a new level, it only has 6 to begin with, and the wanna be gamer’s pfff quit and die!

    Seng Kit VOON September 23, 2017
    1v1 battles with ship weapons. Simple and fun, straight up into the action. Neat post apocalyptic sci fi earth as backdrop. Think Mad Max. Makes me want to shout “Chrome!”

    Paul Yatim April 1, 2017
    Keeps on disconnecting although my Internet is fine. Had to repeat tutorials 2 times because it failed to realize that I’ve finished my mission… Slow frame rate, running on Nexus 6p which is rediculous!

    Valerian McCraig May 21, 2017
    One of the best games I’ve ever played. Only two complaints…well, one complaint, one observation. 1.The cost curve to level your ship beyond 8 is ridiculous. 2. Why in the world is it close to twice the cost to buy ONE system in ace loot after a battle as it is to buy THREE systems via crates? Surely I’m not the only one that has noticed that. Seriously though, epic game, unique as far as I know, and if you are gonna spend money on a game, I’d say this one is worth it. I may even break down and drop a few bucks some day..

    John Shambrook May 14, 2017
    Really good concept, however it has very bad server connectivity issues. As already commented the ads take forever to load, the client regularly disconnects and PVP is full of issues with battleshanging or lagging.

    matt fraser February 14, 2017
    Three words bad ass game it has an awesome game play I don’t really want to to stop I could pull off an all nighter if I wanted to with this game but I would have to keep charging up my phone but that’s notinporten right now what is is this awsomebravo guy bravou out did urselfs

    Jeremy Sundin October 11, 2017
    I’d give it five stars but the stupid PvP system puts you up against higher level ships ALL the time that have twice your health and damage… it takes a miracle to win… then they ding you for not winning. Herald the battles are against people with higher level ships. I have multiple shop levels and all of them have you fight higher levels. Wish I could figure out how to fight lower levels but I never get to.

    Matthew Williamson June 10, 2017
    Great game BUT way too sensitive to WiFi strength…. Unless you maintain FULL BARS on your WiFi signal, it chokes and has to restart. For those who play such games in-transit using public WiFi, that’s a serious drawback. Bummer.

    Francisco Pereira Coutinho March 30, 2017
    OK, sometimes it connects, sometimes it doesn’t. I’m still quite afraid of playing on other devices, or uninstall it till it release new chapter, since I ended it already. Besides google account, would it be possible to create a account system ? It would make things a lot easier

    Developer Ubisoft Entertainment May 23, 2016 Hi Francisco, we’re currently experiencing an issue with an unexpected Google account system update, resulting in this problem. Please do not attempt to reinstall your game or move it to another device at this time, as you may lose access to your progress. We’re working on resolving this issue as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience!

    This is no perticular role our. This game like a not a enjoyable game. I’m not control this game like this game control me. Every time a hand come and give a order d
    o this, tab this, tag this.what is this?

    bolywood cutter June 25, 2017
    Graphic are stunning but i am not happy with gameplay. I am didn’t control my own space ship just press attack button on enemy thats it its. The game is not for me. I am looking for challenges. Thank you. Good bye.

    Cody Nowik July 24, 2017
    I feel like I’m dropped in a weird universe with no idea if what I’m doing is the right thing. Interesting concept I guess but I just feel lost playing this. Might play more, probably uninstall in a few days. Not a bad game, just a confusing one.
