Eclipse: New Dawn for The Galaxy is one of the highest-rated 4X Strategy Games in the App Store and for good reasons: the game is based on a wildly popular boardgame and has elegant graphics and an intuïtive, easy-to-use interface. Instead of building on top of the popular 4X foundation where players can explore, expand, exploit and exterminate, Eclipse simplifies these concepts into a well made game that's easy to learn but hard to master. The game revolves around galactic conflicts and many different factions all seeking one goal: to rule the galaxy.
