It's safe to say that you won't have played a game quite like AstroNest before - at least on mobile. It's a complex sci-fi strategy MMO set in space in which you have to build a fleet of spaceships, colonise planets, and raid alien fleets.

And you'll be doing so alongside (and against) your friends as part of a faction, as well as taking part in weekly tournaments.

The draw of AstroNest is mostly in its fleet customisation. Here you'll be trying to figure out the absolute bet combination of heroes, weapons, and ships - as well as trying to synergise well with other players you work with.

We wanted to learn more about this massive game so reached out to AN Games and asked which games most influenced it, how the fleets work, and what the developer would change if it could start over.
