You are trying to take over all of the planets. The computer is trying to do the same.



There are 4 planet sizes. The largest planet has a defense of 50, then 40 for the next smallest, then 30 and 20 for the smallest. Ships have an attack and defense of 10. Ships are automatically built at your planets. The more planets you have, the more ships you can support. Also having more planets increases the rate at which you build them.

Your planets are red, The computer is blue and gray are neutral.

If you left click on one of your planets it will be selected. If you then left click on any other planet all your ships will be sent to that planet. If the new planet is already yours the ships will reinforce it. If it is neutral or the computer's then you will attack it. If you click the shift click instead, then only half your ships will be sent.

If you drag select a bunch of planets then all your planets in the rectangle will be selected.

If you right click on a planet that is yours, you will add it to all currently selected planets.

If you click on empty space all planets will be deselected.

Great! Possibly, there is a little error with clicking on planets, sometimes id doesnt work. Probably it's only my machine problem.

I\'d like to see a multiplayer implementation of this. There was once a game called galactics that followed very similar gameplay.

Hey! I like this game very much and used to play it often. Unfortunately it's offline now. Is there any chance to play it again? Thank you very much in advance! floyd
