December 13, 2012 -- Thom Robertson ( released Artemis Spaceship Bridge Simulator for IOS devices.

Now owners of iPhones and iPads can report to the bridge and protect the galaxy in Artemis SBS, the game that lets you and your friends operate the bridge of a spaceship.  The IOS game is fully compatible with the Windows version, so your crew can link both to make your living room into a spaceship bridge.  Or IOS owners can turn a table in the coffee shop into a TSN battleship, protecting the sector from Kralien invaders.

Requirements:  Compatible with iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPod touch (3rd generation), iPod touch (4th generation), iPod touch (5th generation) and iPad. Requires iOS 5.0 or later.

Artemis is a multiplayer, multi-computer networked game for Windows and IOS. Artemis simulates a spaceship bridge by networking several computers together. Unlike many networked multi-player games, Artemis was designed to be played by 3-6 players together in one room, but it can also be played online.

In Artemis, one computer is the main screen, while the others serve as one of the five workstations (Helm, Communication, Engineering, Science, and Weapon Control). Working together as a bridge crew, the players warp around the sector, protecting space stations from a multitude of alien ships. Once the Artemis has expended its torpedoes and energy, the crew can replenish the ship by docking with a space station.


Some quotes from random people who played the game:

"For me, Artemis brought back all the vision and vitality that made PC games so broad and interesting. It's a real shot in the arm to space sims as well."

"Artemis is the best game ever. No, seriously. When you combine it with alcohol, magic happens."

"Your game is a brilliant concept"

"What can I say but, holy cow! I've spent the last few years thinking about how awesome it would be to have a game like this!"

"*Jawdrop* I might be able to revitalize our LAN parties with this."

"This is Star Trek through the Rock Band filter. You are playing together as if you were on a ship."

"Awesome game. Goodbye weekend."
