Review: The Infinite Black
Explore the galaxy, form corporations, and alliances, and establish your domain in The Infinite Black, Spellbook’s Free To Play space simulation game that’s made the jump from mobile to PC. Play on any platform — PC, Mac, Linux, Android, or iOS, and take on thousands of other players from around the world in massive fleet battles or hunt alien bounties on your own time in a vast universe — the possibilities are endless!
Gameplay centered on ship upgrades and wealth acquisition, with a heavy focus on social interAction and team-based PVP. Some initial features were changed and adapted for mobile online play, as some of the core concepts of TradeWars 2002 (e.g. limited daily turns) did not translate well to the modern era.
As the game became increasingly popular, more traditional "RPG" aspects were introduced, including an experience/level system, items and equipment, and a flexible class-based system (determined by "Special" items). By the end of 2012, TIB was available on all mobile platforms. By 2014, a new desktop client was published for PC, Mac, and Linux. The game is cross-platform and currently has two servers. Limited multi-boxing is also allowed.
The Infinite Black is truly free and does not require any purchase to experience the FULL game!
The Infinite Black Gameplay
The basic idea of the game is to kill NPCs(enemy ships) to acquire resources to sell for money at StarPorts. You acquire resources from killing enemy ships which you will find while flying in grey sectors or black sectors on the map.
To move around the map simply click on a square and then press the Jump button. As you explore you will come across enemy ships. To attack these tap or click on the name on the right-hand side of the main screen.
