Stella is adventuring through the cosmos, and she needs your help to complete her mission. Star Tap is a new type of clicker game, letting you make use of your frantic tapping ability to accelerate a space shuttle through the solar system and beyond, collecting resources to help you upgrade your space shuttle and drones. Let's take a look at how you can make the most of your time in this fun new game.
Use Your Starsoul Pendant and Drone Upgrades Wisely
This is an easy game to play, without the need for a lot of long-term strategic planning. It's important to remember that you aren't on a timer other than your own, and you can complete the game at your own pace.
With that said, there are definitely ways to progress faster through the game. Making the most of your Starsoul Pendant is one strategy that will speed you along through space. This is a somewhat magical device that helps you skim across folds in space. The further you get from your last milestone, the more resources you need to collect to activate the pendant and skim.
As you collect (or purchase) diamonds, you can use them to reset your Starsoul Pendant back to 100. This is a great way to reduce how long it takes to pass between milestones.
There's also a real importance to upgrading your drones. The better your drones are, the more resources they'll collect each minute. That translates to activating the Starsoul Pendant faster and more often, as well as being able to make other upgrades more quickly. This is how you advance through the galaxy rapidly, by making judicious use of all of the resources available to you.

Milestones and Rewards Are Vital, too
Every time you reach a milestone, such as a planet or some other celestial location, you collect rewards. These are resources as well as the two types of matter you need to make advances in your shuttle. Make wise use of them.
You also get a major boost from your alien friend, so choose that reward wisely. I've found the best way to proceed quickly through the longer stretches between milestones is to have ELF, your alien friend, fold space more efficiently for you. This reduces the distance to the next milestone, allowing you to get there faster.
Along the way, be sure to keep up with any other rewards that come your way. For example, when you've been away from the game for a while, your drones are still collecting resources. Be sure to tap on the round shuttle icon to collect those when you go back into the game.
You'll activate abilities that automatically tap for you, and you'll even get your drones upgraded enough to tap on their own. Even so, you should keep tapping as fast as you can, to help make sure you speed through space as quickly as possible.
There are plenty of ways to play Star Tap, and there isn't any right or wrong method. Try out different techniques, have fun, and enjoy the glorious background music and sound effects. This is truly a different take in clicker games, and a refreshing way to learn about space and the stars throughout the universe.
Update your shuttle and let the alien help you
ELF, the alien lifeform who follows you through your voyage, will offer you tremendous help along the way. Keep an eye out for him, and don't forget to upgrade your shuttle when you have the resources to do so.
Collect rewards and upgrade your drones
Keep an eye on your controls, since you will get notified of rewards and available upgrades to your drones.
Use your diamonds and Starsoul pendant wisely
Your diamonds are precious, obviously, so you should use them wisely. The same applies to your Starsoul pendant, which helps you skim across folds in space to arrive at your destination faster.
Reach milestones and get rewarded
As you travel through space, you'll arrive at milestones that reward you. These are planets, asteroid belts, and other celestial locations.
