Profiteer – star trucking across the universe
Profiteer by “RokSoft” is a brand new space trading simulation where you get to fly all over the galaxy, trade with funny looking aliens, visit strange new world and try to earn some profit! Do you have what it takes to become a true Profiteer?
You start off with just about enough money in your pockets to buy your first cargo and hop to a nearby planet and sell it for profit. The rusty old bucket of a starship you get to fly at the beginning, took an arm and a leg to get ahold of and the loan shark won’t be happy if you miss your loan payments too often.
Aside from taking advantage of the market by buying low and selling high, you can also transport high value cargo and exotic goods between worlds. Black market provisioning is also possible and can be quite rewarding, but only if you get away unnoticed, or have enough money in your bank reserves to cover the fines. Once the money start flowing, you can start upgrading your space truck with better defenses, more cargo space, larger fuel tanks, new engines, or you can acquire additional trucks and build your very own fleet.
Eight other AI truckers will try to run you over by any means necessary. They won’t hesitate to sabotage your truck or move your trade routes to take all the potential profits for themselves. Profiteer also supports a hot-seat multiplayer mode that offers a mixture of up to nine human and AI players on a single device.
Profiteer can be downloaded from the Play Store for $1.0. The light (free) version of the game, although limited by turns and upgrades (check game features tab for full list), should give you a pretty clear picture about the game mechanics and what to expect. There are no ads or in-app purchases inside and can be played for as long as you want to.
