A casual tactical combat game set in space.
The player controls a squadron of space ships
as they engage in real-time combat with various enemies. Bounty is paid for each enemy ship (or space monster) and this money is used to repair ships and purchase new ships.
There are five factions to play as or fight against, and the game is set up so you can try your hand at controlling a mercenary fleet from any of the factions.
Each faction has different weapons technologies and different ship designs, although there are just three classes of ships.
The game environment is space, with no cover or terrain-like effects. The strategic elements are very much like age-of-sail combat between ships of the line.
The game runs best on Windows XP/2000. Windows 7 users should try out the demo for at least an hour to make sure the game runs properly for them.
