Ellys Idaho

Crying Suns is a narrative and tactical game that puts you in the role of Admiral Ellys
Idaho. Inspired by science fiction and BattleStar Galactica, the game features
several gameplay phases in which players are given choices that can have both
positive and negative outcomes. Players face challenges such as planet exploration
for resources and tactical battles with rival space fleets. In addition to this, Crying
Suns includes an extensive campaign mode that is divided into multiple parts.
The game is set in a sci-fi universe, where man and machine once shared the same
planet. Before humans were born, the Galactic Empire was ruled by OMNIs, or
machine intelligences. Now, the OMNIs have fled the galaxy, and Commander Ellys
Idaho must lead his battleship through dangerous space sectors to save it. The

The game’s narrative is a strong point. It blends interesting lore with tactical combat
and an FTL-inspired branching path to make you feel as though you’re on a
dangerous space mission. However, there are a few issues to keep in mind. For one,
the story is rather dark. Unlike the lore-driven world of FTL, the game features an
actual world and lore, rather than a hollow premise.

Tactical gameplay

In Crying Suns, you take control of an AI clone, who’s recently awakened. This AI is
called Kaliban, and it reveals that you’re a member of the OMNI race, a subservient
machine. Your task is to reestablish contact with the Galactic Empire, which has
been dreadfully lost since its fall.
In this tactically based strategy game, you direct your squadrons to engage enemy
battleships. You can use fighters, frigates, drones, and other squadrons to help you

In addition to being a tactical game, Crying Suns also offers exploration and
mystery. The storyline is intriguing, and its pixel-art aesthetic makes it a great
choice. You can play Crying Suns for free on the Google Play Store now. The game is
also available on the Apple Store. If you want to try it out, make sure to give it a try!
Once you’ve done that, you’ll be able to decide for yourself if this is the right game
for you.


Randomness in Crying Suns is a fundamental element in the game. Players spend
scrap to improve their ships, mount new weapons and squadrons, and enhance their
teams of officers. While upgrading your ships, don’t forget to pay attention to fuel
and other resources. Luckily, Crying Suns also offers several ways to increase your
fleet’s defense. There are also plenty of rewards for completing missions and
completing objectives.
The combat system in Crying Suns is different from FTL, which is why you’ll want to
master it before starting a new game. You can choose how many squadrons you
want, and each squadron has a different type of strength. You can equip squadrons
with fighters and drones for standard firepower. You can also equip squadrons with
frigates to attack enemies in range. As you progress through the game, you’ll be
able to assign these squadrons to assets that match their unique abilities.
