A Marked Improvement Over The PC Customer

    By Kingang

    EVE Echoes ISK is ambitious. It aims to encapsulate all of the intrigue, drama, and player-driven stories we've come to expect out of New Eden, while supplying the expertise on your mobile platform.

    Everything is intact - by the reaches of Nullsec distance to the ports which make up Jita. Additionally, the group has full access to CCP's source files (and CCP has access to NetEase's) and as a result the visuals seem nearly identical to the PC customer of EVE Online. While a discerning eye may spot the gaps, at a distance I found myself watching footage on a screen and being shocked as it was revealed to be EVE Echoes.

    However, the experience would be if it did not manage nicely. And thankfully, even though I just had a few hands-on sessions on both the iPhone and an Android tablet, I could say that movement and controlling your boat feels incredibly natural. Simply tapping the part of space you would like to go moves your boat, and while the process to warp doesn't differ much in the PC version, the whole affair feels significantly less convoluted, like the group supporting the mobile game removed the unnecessary clicks that make some of EVE's procedures feel overly complicated.

    However, it is battle that is significantly simplified, and it's a place where I'm hoping we see improvement about the PC version of the title. Targeting multiple customers may be a hassle for players still learning how to pilot their boat. EVE Echoes includes a wise Goal attribute that automatically aims each enemy ship in the vicinity.

    Additionally, once targeted, your boat will automatically strategy and begin to orbit the nearest enemy in scope. While you do not always want to orbit an enemy in combat, it is a nice improvement too, again, it eliminate unnecessary clicks. More advanced Buy EVE Echoes Items players will understand the situations in which you wish to just turn and burn to keep at a safe range from an enemy, or other advanced maneuvers based upon the boat you are piloting. However, it worked superbly in the demonstration as my boat auto attacked one boat till it was ruined and then immediately moved onto the second.
