Last month we brought you news that Nvinium Games launched Space Empires: Battle for Supremacy, a social RPG that available on Facebook and now it seems they’re ready to continue their quest to conquer the social gaming market with the expansion of Space Empires to the iPhone and iPad.

All of us here at DDGW have spent the last month playing Space Empires on Facebook and it has been a surprisingly enjoyable experience. Without a doubt it is one of the better if not best developed social games on Facebook. The presentation, vertical and horizontal transitions, overall design and community involvement all combine for a galactic RPG worth investing your time in.

Nvinium has teamed up with international publishers Strategy First to continue the ongoing expansion of Space Empires to social media and casual game platforms. Social gamers will be able to connect with Space Empire gamers anywhere and at anytime through soon to be released versions of the game on the iPhone and iPad.

Due to the overwhelming success and avid following Space Empires has received since its launch, helped  push developers  to expand from the PC to Faceebook. Since its launch on Facebook the developers have received the same exceptional responses from fans and accordingly began the process for expansion to mobile gaming platforms.

Space Empires originally released in 1993 for the PC, featured five installments and one sister title. The social version of Space Empires recently debuted on Facebook and is considered the top sci-fi social game on the platform.

Matt Abrams, Chief Executive Officer of Nvinium said “We are excited to bring Strategy First’s critically acclaimed franchise to a wider social gaming audience. This move to the ‘I-Phone’ and the ‘I-Pad’ is the next step in bridging the gap between traditional and social gamers

Space Empires Battle for Supremacy for the I-Phone and the I-Pad is expected to launch in early 2011.

    What’s happening with this? Early 2011 was a few months ago now. I’m still hoping I can play my beloved Space Empires on my iPhone at some time in the near future……..
