Try a playable demo of Smugglers IV before exploring the whole galaxy in the full version
Matrix Games and Niels Bauer Games have released a playable demo of Smugglers IV - Doomsday, a turn-based space-trading game where you take command of an advanced space ship amidst a galaxy torn by war and crime. With your ship and skilled crew you can choose to be a greedy trader, ambitious bounty hunter, ruthless pirate, or one of the other professions in your quest for riches, fame, and power. Through trading, fulfilling missions, or pirating, you can earn the money and skills necessary to buy new ships and upgrade your equipment. As success brings larger ships, missions, and enemies, you'll have to manage a crew, board & plunder enemy ships, and even conquer star systems. You can move up in rank with the factions you align with and gain special abilities and powers as you become more experienced.
