Flow Combine describes SpaceCom as “a strategic-to-the-bone, starfleet command game with a heavy focus on multiplayer. Spacecom is a battle of strategists in which deception, smart movement, and choices to battle decide victory or defeat. No coincidence, no luck. Spacecom pushes your ability to strategize with a focus on real-time tactics and planning. Use proven maneuvers learned from military legends or devise your own plans," and the game has shown their description to be quite apt. Unlike many games in the genre Spacecom does not rely on deep technology trees or a large number of available units with a complex system of each unit countering another.
