Movements follow the rules of gravity, which limits the number of ships and structures. Careful positioning of fleets becomes the best offense because defensive elements like turrets aren't very effective because of short ranges. Players can easily set a rally point to get their whole fleet to a point of crisis if needed, though getting new ships there can be a challenge.
Some trial and error work is unavoidable here, but the end results are worth the effort, though it can take a while for games to end. This outstanding, highly replayable game also has great colorful visuals in the forefront of a wide black space, sketched drawings. Collector's Edition also available.
